Extend from Imagine That Inc. is simulation software which the company advertises as software for the next millennium. I had not seen this software before, and therefore, was not sure of what to expect from it. But I was pleasantly surprised with its abilities after working with it for a few days. Extend is supplied on a CD, accompanied by a Users Manual which covers various topics such as building a model, enhancing the model and running the model with the blocks provided with the model. It also has extensive discussion on the programing language ModL with which new blocks can be created. Software can run on both Windows as well as Macintosh platforms. The requirements for Windows version are: 486, Pentium or Pentium Pro computer, 8 MB RAM (16 MB recommended), 20 MB hard disk space and Windows 3.1, Windows 95 or above, or Windows NT 3.5+. The requirements for Macintosh are 68020+ or Power Macintosh, 8 MB RAM, 25 MB hard disk space. The installation itself is extremely simple, straightforward and fast. I tried it out on a Pentium MMX 200 MHz/32 Mb with Windows 95, and it took less than 5 minutes.
