Since the first microcomputer simulation languages became available significant developments have taken place such as major enhancements of existing languages, the availability of animation capabilities, the development of simulation systems specifically designed for microcomputers, domain dependent simulators and powerful user interfaces. This paper will attempt to identify, analyse and discuss these trends in the development of microcomputer simulation software, the associated changes that are taking place in the application of the simulation modelling approach and the relevant implications for the simulation user.
