Initial Start Button  



There are some sims where the students have to try to pause the sim to take initial data at time=0 and it's very hard for them to pause the sim before it starts reacting. Can we include a start button like the old sims? So when you load the webpage it is initially not going and then they can click start to have control over these quick moving reactions.

We will look at whether this is possible.

Currently the sims play by default because the "play/pause" button controls the whether the draw loop of of the simulation window is running. If we were to pause it when the sim is created, the draw loop being paused would prevent particles being be drawn on the screen at initialization.

It may be possible to pause the draw loop only as soon as the particles have been rendered, but we will have to investigate this possibility.
