How to Create and Play Your Sims Anywhere

Wednesday, September 21, 2016 at 11:30am-12:00pm

You may be aware that the SimsUshare sim viewer is free (unlike other fire simulation software), but did you know you can install the sim viewer on a USB drive and play your sims anywhere?
If you want to learn how to do this, you need to attend this Users Group Meeting. This meeting will show how easy it is to carry and show sims on computers or devices other than on the ones that the sims were created. This feature is not an afterthought—making your sims available anywhere is one of the principle goals of SimsUshare!

In the 30 minute presentation (20 minute walkthrough, 10 minute Q&A), we will show you how to:

    • Install the free sim viewer on a USB drive
    • Copy your sims to a USB drive
    • Run SimsUshare from the USB drive
    • Create sims anywhere by moving your ‘floating’ subscription license among devices.

But wait, there’s more…we are also excited to show you how you can now use SimsUshare to create localized sims for your AlphaACT fire training subscription! This event may be the most informative 30 minute learning session you attend this year, so please reserve your spot today!
