[ndnSIM] Forwarding strategies in ndnSIM

Hi everyone,

I am new to ndnSIM and I need help in ndnsim kickstart. I am
currently learning and investigating ndnSIM by running its examples
scenario and making small tweaks.
However, I have some queries.

1: I changed the forwarding strategy in ndn-grid.cpp examples from
best-route to multicast strategy but I didn't see any changes in the
forwarding. I tried to notice it in the visualizer.

2: Even if I remove the line of code
// Set BestRoute strategy
Still, there is no changes in the forwarding process. The nodes still
manage to forward the packets in the same way as they did with best route
and multicast strategy.
I was expecting no forwarding at all.

PS: When I changed the forwarding strategy in ndn-load-balancer.cpp from
Random Load balancer to multicast strategy it did work but is not working
in other examples.

Your help is much appreciated.
