We have developed a sophisticated microscopic model for studying emergent spatial patterns in a predator prey based artificial life scenario. In this paper we describe some of the simulation optimisation tools and techniques that are necessary to support many long model runs over different parameters and starting conditions. We discuss how these optimisation techniques may be of general value to developers of other simulation codes.
