Good news, everyone! I’ve made some really good breakthroughs and progress on the simulator. The bad news is that I still don’t have anything ready to show yet!

It’s been slow going because a few months ago I decided to redo many aspects of the simulator. It is now “almost” entirely new from what you saw from the preview videos.

There’s a lot of stuff to consider! Like not fully opening one or both of the water sightglass valves will cause the water level in the glass to change slower than what’s actually in the boiler, or that closing the top steam return valve can actually cause the water level in the glass to rise due to condensing steam above. So the glass can actually lie to you!
