Using the below code I get agents are like this:

```
to setup
ask breadth-patches [sprout-walls wall-agents[set color 2]]
ask length-patches [sprout-walls wall-agents[set color 2]]
ask gap-patches [sprout-walls wall-agents[set color 2]]
ask length-patches[align-inside-at-top]
ask breadth-patches [align-inside-at-right-left]
ask gap-patches[align-inside-at-top]
end
to align-inside-at-top ;; patch procedure
let counter count walls-here ;; we will use this as a count-down, after using it in some calculations
if counter > 0 ;; could assume there are turtles, but we are not.
[ let gap1 1 / counter ;; size of turtles, gap between turtles
let half-gap gap1 / 2 ;; half-size of turtles
let ytop 0
if-else(pycor < 0)[set ytop pycor - .5 - half-gap]
[set ytop pycor + .5 - half-gap]
let xleft pxcor - .5 - half-gap
ask walls-here
[ set size gap1
set ycor ytop
set xcor xleft + gap1 * counter
set counter counter - 1 ;; so we're placing them from right to left
; set ycor ycor + 0.125
]
]
end
to align-inside-at-right-left ;; patch procedure
let counter count turtles-here ;; we will use this as a count-down, after using it in some calculations
if counter > 0 ;; could assume there are turtles, but we are not.
[ let gap1 1 / counter ;; size of turtles, gap between turtles
let half-gap gap1 / 2 ;; half-size of turtles
let ytop pycor + .5 + half-gap
let xleft 0
if-else (pxcor < 0)[
set xleft pxcor + .5 - half-gap]
[ set xleft pxcor - .5 + half-gap
]
ask turtles-here
[ set size gap1
set ycor ytop - gap1 * counter
set xcor xleft ;+ gap * counter
set counter counter - 1 ;; so we're placing them from right to left
]
]
end
```

Note: The gap in the rectangle is due to the following code

```
ask patches with [pxcor > (gap * (-1)) and pxcor < gap and pycor =(breadthrec - 1)][ask walls-here[die]]
```

Here, gap = 1 ,i.e, a width of 1 patch.

So the input parameter is the `wall-agents`

which specifies the number of agents to created per patch along the length and breadth patches. I wish to change to create overlapping agents as in the figure below(Sorry the figure is not so perfect, but I hope it explains it). Please help on how to achieve this.
