First, compiles the vectorized population spatial maps into a series of binary raster PNG files, which is the format that SLiM understands and uses it to define population boundaries. Then extracts the demographic model defined by the user (i.e. population divergences and gene flow events) into a series of tables which are later used by the built-in SLiM script to program the timing of simulation events.

Object(s) of the
Output directory for the model configuration files which will be loaded by the backend SLiM script
Generation time (in model time units)
How many distance units per pixel?
Maximum spatial competition and mating choice distance
Standard deviation of the normal distribution of the parent-offspring distance
Geneflow events generated by the
Overwrite the contents of the output directory in case it already exists?
Total length of the simulation (required for forward time models, optional for models specified in backward time units which by default run to "the present time")
Intended direction of time. Under normal circumstances this parameter is inferred from the model and does not need to be set manually.
