    I would like a script(s) that could be run

    A text file that contains outputs that are executed one after the other.

    It could be used to do a soft stop and start etc or load the sim to a position to allow somebody to get in/out

    Or just to get the sim to perform a quick test to test tuning

    @Gadget999,
    The closest thing you will find in simtools for 'scripting' is the Video Ride stuff.
    Check out Video Ride recorder.
    I knows its not exactly what you were thinking, but its close lol.
    SimTools v3 will have a parking position, so that's all covered already.
    Take care,

    At game shutdown I'd say.
    Start a game and it lifts into position (centers).
    At game end, it parks.

    There will be a shortcut key available, so you can set it and park at any time really.
    But we'll see how it goes when I get there.
    Take care,
    yobuddy
