Do you sell simulators or simulator kits with SimTools?
Building a custom installation for your simulators can help save a lot of time and money with support. You can create an installation where there will be nothing to teach the end user. All they will need to do is patch the games and play.
We have a tool called Company Tools that will allow you to customize a build of SimTools for your specific simulators. You can produce a version of SimTools enabling simple end user setup and use.
Company Tools can build an end user type of installation where Game Engine will be completely locked. It can also build a more traditional installation where the users can edit Game Engine settings themselves. The choice is up to you. Both types of installations can provide a setup where the end user only needs to patch a game to use their simulator.
You can easily configure a version of SimTools for each model of simulator that you produce or sell. The custom SimTools install will do a fresh install or update SimTools as needed.

- - Select the included game plugins
