SimulationCraft is a tool to explore combat mechanics in the popular MMO RPG World of Warcraft (tm).
It is a multi-player event driven simulator written in C++ that models player character damage-per-second in various raiding scenarios.
Increasing class synergy and the prevalence of proc-based combat modifiers have eroded the accuracy of traditional calculators that rely upon closed-form approximations to model very complex mechanics. The goal of this simulator is to close the accuracy gap while maintaining a performance level high enough to calculate relative stat weights to aid gear selection.
SimulationCraft allows raid/party creation of arbitrary size, generating detailed charts and reports for both individual and raid performance.
A simple graphical interface is included with the tool, allowing players to download and analyze characters from the Armory. It can also be run from the command-line in which case the player profiles are specified via parameter files.
