newbie question

I am new to SysDyn. I have downloaded/installed the latest version 1.9.0. I notice this was last updated 2015.

Is this application still supported?

Also, is there any relation between this and VenSim (World3)? Derivation? Differences?

Thank you in advance.

We still do some development to the Sysdyn, but mainly our development focuses on the Simupedia tool, which we utilize to create end user interfaces to Sysdyn.

Sysdyn has quite a lot in common with Vensim, but of cource there are a lot of differences. For instance, for a solver we support OpenModelica solvers and one of our own. Sysdyn also supports import from Vensim models, to some extent. Vensim has more advanced features, but, on the other hand, Sysdyn is a completely free tool.

Thank you Tuomas for that.

I will look further into SysDyn.
