Using the Visual Simulation Environment

Even though the simulation engine is just a service, MSRS provides an editor that you can use to create new entities and arrange them within a simulation scene. The graphical editor—named the Visual Simulation Environment (VSE)—operates in two basic modes: run and edit. Run mode will run the simulation but does not allow you to change any of the properties affecting the simulation scene. Edit mode (see Figure 4-1) allows you to alter the current scene by changing the properties of existing entities or adding new entities.

This section will include information you need to work with VSE. Because simulation is a heavily graphics-intensive process, you will need to make certain hardware considerations before ...
