The CoderZ Simulation Pane is the right half of the screen inside a mission or a project, where the virtual robot (EV3 or Ruby) executes the code you wrote once you run the simulation.
At the top of the code editor are several control buttons:
Note: not all buttons are available in every course.
|Full screen||Minimizes the Code Editor and shows the Simulation Pane at full screen.|
|Exit full screen||Returns the Simulation Pane to half-size and shows the Code Editor again.|
|Show code||Hides the robot and its environment and shows the code instead.|
|Show simulation||Hides the code and shows the robot and environment Simulation Pane again|
|Resets the simulation - the robot will return to its starting point. This will not affect the code you wrote.|
|Run simulation||How Do I Run My Code in Simulation?|
|Open/close the HUD||What is the HUD?|
|Activate/deactivate Manual Control||What is Manual Control?|
|Activate/deactivate trail drawer||What is the Trail?|
|Time scale||Runs the robot simulation at half-speed, normal speed (the default), 1.5 times speed, or 2-times speed.|
Other Indicators in the Simulation Pane
|Timer||Starts once the simulation is run. Some missions' timers counts down!|
|Points||Shows how many points you have collected. Most missions have collectibles and avoidables.|
