If you use effect timings (fade-in’s and fade-out’s) in your scenarios that are longer than a few seconds, you may find it useful during scenario testing to advance or rewind the scenario clock, especially if you have set effects to come in after long periods of time (minutes).
We recently introduced the capability to advance or rewind the scenario time, to make testing such scenarios easier. In the “Play Sim” screen, there is a menu option named “Set Scenario Time”, shown below. When you press this menu item, SimsUshare pauses the simulation (in any open window), and asks you to enter the new scenario time. By default, the program puts the current scenario time in.
Once you have chosen the new time and pressed OK, the scenario jumps to that moment and resumes the simulation.
