TOTL family(integer) genus(integer) species(integer)
Returns the total number of agents with the given classification, with 0 being used as a wildcard.
setv totl 4 2 0
Returns the number of grendels.
Find how many tubas and their seeds are in the world (useful for checking if something has gone extinct or been autokilled - or if a reproducing agent is getting overpopulated!):
