A simulator is a program used to estimate the outcome of battle before it takes place. Because the math behind OGame is known, these can forecast with good accuracy how a battle will turn out. The result cannot be exact, but are close enough to guide you to the expected result.
You enter in info such as: your opponents weapon, armor, and shielding technology levels and all of your opponents defense and ships. Then you enter in the ships that you are planning on sending and it will tell you what the most probable outcome would be.
