In this paper, we introduce new capabilities to our existing microsimulation framework, Simulacron. These new capabilities add the modelling of behaviours based on motivations and improve our existing non-deterministic movement capacity. We then discuss the application of these new features to a simple, synthetic, proof of concept, scenario involving the transit of people through a corridor and how an induced panic affects their throughput. Finally we describe a more complex scenario, which is currently under development, involving the detonation of an explosive device in a major metropolitan transport hub at peak hour and the analysis of subsequent reaction.
