Any holonomic robots available in Stage?

Hi~I'm going to work with some robot formation methods in ROS. I want to do my experiments in Stage. However, the algorithm generates velocity vector (x,y)rather than (linear,angular) which is used by many nonholonomic robots like turtlebot. It's a bit tough to deal with diff-drive robot, which is not focused in my research.
So what I want is some kinds of ideal mobile robots in Stage to do experiments for my formation method. But I'm new to stage and I've used only turtlebot in Stage before. I'd appreciate it if anyone can help me with some available kinds of robots in Stage or some useful packages in ROS. Thanks a lot!

Have you tried changing drive "diff" to drive "omni" in your .world file for stage ?

See the stage documentation for the position model.

Thanks! That's actually what I need. :)
