The Combat Simulator (SEIV)
The Simulator is supposedly equivalent to actual combat with some exceptions. You can't simulate crew or fleet experience in the combat simulator. You can only simulate planets, storms, etc. if they are in your home system.
While in the simulator, movement is played for the ships contained in the square selected in the mini-map. Clicking off ships into empty space expedites movement of all ships to the end of the round. (Stone Mill)
Between rounds, you can roll over any ship, unit, (or planet) to view their components and class. (Stone Mill)
Some people say that the combat simulator results are unreliable and don't reflect in-game combat conditions.
