AnyLogic model can be run either in real time or virtual time mode.
In real time mode, the mapping of AnyLogic model time to the real time is made, i.e. you specify how many model time units one second takes. It is frequently needed when you want your presentation to appear as in real life.
In virtual time mode, the model runs at its maximum speed and no mapping is made between model time units and seconds of astronomical time. This time mode is useful when you need to simulate your model for a long period of time.
In real time mode, you can increase or decrease model simulation speed by changing the model simulation speed scale.
The default 1x scale means that the model is simulated with the model
simulation speed defined in the properties of the current AnyLogic
experiment; 2x means that model is run twice faster than the specified
model speed, etc. For instance, if the model speed is 6 model time
units per second, 2x means that 12 model time units correspond to 1
