Yes, but if we add slopes, we should also think wether we want the globules to
consume more food when going on slopes.

If we do so, maybe we can add roads as well; I propose the following costs

Food consumption/pathfinding table per step:

slope           same level              up              down

normal          3                               5               2

If slope is < +- 10 deg, it is same level, if it is between +- 10 deg and +-35
deg, it is slope, if higher, it is an obstacle.

What do you think?

Have a nice day,

Steph
