What are the limits on information supplied to the agent?

The rules are quite vague where the limits are on how much concrete information we can supply to the agent.

Is the local storage only meant for data generated by the agent during the competition?

Or can we supply the agent with non level specific data such as textures or general information about birds?

And finally, level specific data, is that off limits? (imho having level specific data sounds too easy but the clarification would still be nice. The rules are somewhat vague and skipping out on advantageous data just because it sounds silly without even asking would be even more silly if it turns out to be considered "fair" advantage)

you can supply the agent with any non-level specific data. Since the competition levels are unknown, I'm not sure if level specific data makes too much sense for the competition. However, if you do want to use level-specific data, you should have a switch where this can be disabled, for example when we do the benchmarking.

I hope this answers your questions.
