Access to Labster

Resuming simulation, saving points, and simulation attempts


The simulation can be paused if you need to step away and resume at a later time where you left off. To do so, click on "esc" on your keyboard, and when you need to access the simulation again, hit "Resume".

Saving points

Our simulations contain automatic saving points so that you can pause a simulation and resume your attempt later on. The saving points match the completion of tasks or 'missions', so that resuming your attempt always leads you to the beginning of a task, which might be a few steps back from where you left the lab.

You will be notified by a 'Saving progress' notification at the top left of your screen when your progress is being saved.

To reload and replay a mission from the beginning, raise your LabPad and access the "mission" tab to click "load checkpoint".


You will have the choice to "Start new" or "Resume" if you quit a simulation before it is finished.

Your progress and score will be recorded as a single try if you select "Resume," which will return you to the most recent save point.

When you select "Start new," a new attempt will be recorded.

Please be aware that if you select that option, you won't have the option of returning to the prior attempt.
