Local server

Users with a professional plan, will be able to use the online servers, limited by hours per month, as well as a local version. It will allow the user to take fully advantage of their PC specs, without any time limitation. In the simumatik app homescreen, a button to download the server can be found in the top-right corner.

If the server is successfully started, a Simumatik icon should be shown in your system-tray to indicate the user that the server is currently running.

At this point, you can go back to the simumatik app and refresh the servers list in the homescreen by clicking the reload button. The local server running will now be shown there.

Tip

The Simumatik server acts a launcher, so it will try to automatically update itself on each run!
