SimTools and XSimulator Partnership Explained

SimTools and Xsimulator.net are not one and the same thing, here @RaceRay explains the partnership between the two endeavors: https://www.xsimulator.net/community/threads/insights-into-simtools-and-xsimulator-partnership.9645/

  • The first part of the motion simulation ecosystem is the website XSimulator.net which is responsible for all aspects of doing community work and marketing like increasing the range and traffic of the community and the online visibility for topics like motion simulator hardware, software, and DIY construction documentary.

    The staff on XSimulator.net which includes me also maintains and runs the website and the forum download section where you can download all the latest plugins and the SimTools DIY version. The staff is also responsible for moderating the user-generating content to make sure that every post and article complies with our legal terms.

    For downloading plugins you need coins which you earn for forum activity or you can buy one of the download packages. Every money that is earned on xsimulator.net is invested in technical maintenance and improvement of the website and in marketing efforts to make the project more popular.

  • The second and same important part is the new website SimTools.us which is run and operated by our long trusted and very good friend and member Dustin aka @yobuddy. He is responsible for the development of the complex motion simulator software SimTools which can be downloaded on simtools.us as well as on xsimulator.net.

    For using SimTools you need a valid license key which you can only purchase on simtools.us or if you are qualified you can request a free DIY key*

    The income which is generated on simtools.us goes completely to @yobuddy to keep the development of SimTools alive and to compensate for the countless hours of work he did and will do in the future. This includes bug fixing, creating new functions, and other improvements to SimTools. Purchasing a license key ensures that SimTools will evolve in the future.

    So, please before trying to get immediately a free DIY license key, ask yourself if you just want to be part of the community or if you also want to support your work with Dustin financially. Your participation in our community is much appreciated and welcome but only financial support makes sure that SimTools will evolve in the future:cheers It also increases the chances that Dustin can work some time full-time on SimTools and that more resources are available to realize your feature requests.

I hope this post is answering all your questions. Besides that, I would be really happy if you like to support xsimulator.net by buying a download package and purchasing a SimTools license.
