 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​settings/​simulator.png?​nolink|}}
 +
 +At the very first program start one simulator is automatically created, but you can add more simulators and then switch between them at any time.
 +
 +=== Select Simulator Type ===
 +
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​settings/​simulator-select-type.png?​nolink|}}
 +
 +After you have clicked on the button ''​Create New Simulator''​ this dialog will appear asking you which type of simulator you want to create.

 +
 +== Main ==
 +
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​settings/​simulator-prepar3d-fsx-fsw-main.png?​nolink|}}
 +
 +Below the not changable simulator type you can define a custom name for this simulator.
 +
 +Additionally you can choose the simulator documents folder which is automatically detected if the simulator is installed locally.
 +
 +If the selected simulator is currently not active, you can use the buttons ''​Activate Simulator''​ to activate it or ''​Delete Simulator''​ to delete it again.
 +
 +:i: Note: You can change the active simulator also by clicking on the connection status in the [[other/​title-bar#​connection_status|Title Bar]].
 +
 +== Database Build ==
 +
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​settings/​simulator-prepar3d-fsx-fsw-database-build.png?​nolink|}}
 +
 +The database build is explained in the [[installation:​database-build#​database_synchronization|Database Build]] installation section.
 +
 +== Navigation Data Update ==
 +
 +{{https://​www.fs-flightcontrol.com/​img/​manual/​features/​settings/​simulator-prepar3d-fsx-fsw-navigation-data-update.png?​nolink|}}
