Simis Editor v0.2

The Simis Editor opens, edits and saves many of the files used by Train Simulator, displaying them as a tree structure.

Getting Started

What Works

  • File > Open... - opening supported file types (see below).
  • File > Save, File > Save As... - saving files in Unicode text, binary or compressed binary. New!
  • Help > Reload Simis Resources - reloads all files from the "Resources" subdirectory (useful for testing). New!
  • All blocks and values in a file can be seen in the main tree view.
  • Values can be edited by selecting the block or value in the tree and using the Property Grid on the right. New!
  • Indirect file opening - dropping a supported file on "Simis Editor.exe" or the application window will open it. New!

What Doesn't Work (Yet)

  • Creating new files.
  • Opening other similar game files. More will be supported in future releases.
  • Editing the tree structure of files.
  • Edit menu functions: undo, redo, cut, copy, paste, delete.

Note: Read Support means Simis Editor can open the file without throwing any exceptions.
Note: Write Support means Simis Editor can open and save the file without throwing any exceptions, and find no differences with the original.
Note: Formats which use the :buffer type can be loaded but are not completely parsed and can not be saved correctly.
