Combat Simulation allows you to send your T-Dolls on various training missions. It requires Commander Level 12 to be unlocked.
Performing simulations does not use ammunition or rations, but spends energy. One point of energy is gained every two hours, up to a maximum of six. Should you run out, more may be bought from the store. Extra energies are used when your main energy runs out.
The first four simulation are divided into three difficulties; Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced. Missions of a higher level have a higher difficulty and a correspondingly higher reward.
- 1 Reinforcement Exercises
- 2 Data Sampling
- 3 Experience Training
- 4 Corridor of Cloud Atlas
- 5 Defense Drill
- 6 Sangvis Cultivation
- 7 Target Practice
Reinforcement Exercises open every Monday, Thursday, and Sunday. It provides Enhancement Capsules, which the Commander can use to strengthen T-Dolls and HOC units. All training levels involve sending one echelon down a fixed path to fight an enemy echelon. Random nodes that can be found along the way may drop Enhancement Capsules or random resources. The higher the difficulty is, the more rewards the Commander can get.
- Basic Training provides guaranteed x1.
- Intermediate Training provides guaranteed x2.
- Advanced Training provides guaranteed x3.
Data Sampling simulation battle provides Training Data, which is essential for skill training for both T-Dolls and Fairies. Commander can use any owned T-Doll for this sim, including those who are in the middle of repair, logistic mission, or expedition.
Commander is given a maximum 30 seconds to beat the Training Drone. Successfully beating the drone within the time limit will award the Commander with Training Data. Faster time corresponds to higher amount of reward.
- Basic Training: 10,000 HP.
- Intermediate Training: 20,000 HP.
- Advanced Training: 40,000 HP.
Experience Mode is identical to actual combat, with several exceptions. T-Dolls which die in combat here will not lose affection. Additionally, there is no enemy phase and T-Dolls do not consume Ammo or Ration.
Experience Mode cannot be paused once it is started.
Once it is completed, you will receive fixed amount of EXP split evenly between all T-Dolls present in the simulation, meaning the less T-Dolls you bring the more individual EXP they will each gain. The amount of experience given is dependent on the difficulty of the mission and on the number of enemy echelons you successfully eliminated, with a 2x bonus awarded for fully clearing the mission.
Leaving low-level teams you want to level on drop zones and bringing just enough to clear the mobs is an effective strategy for maximizing efficiency, but be careful as the mission will be failed if all T-Dolls are killed. Even if only one T-Doll survives the simulation can be cleared and the valuable bonus EXP awarded. Furthermore, no additional EXP is awarded to a squad that defeats a mob.
- Basic EXP training rewards 20,000 EXP split between all participating TDolls.
- Intermediate EXP training rewards 80,000 EXP split between all participating TDolls.
- Advanced EXP training rewards 240,000 EXP split between all participating TDolls.
Corridor of Cloud Atlas
Neural Cloud Corridor is available everyday This simulation battle provides the Commander with Memory Fragments which can be used to perform Digimind Upgrade for eligible T-Dolls. Similar to Capsule Mode, the Commander sends an echelon to clear one enemy echelon down a fixed path riddled with mystery nodes, which may award the Commander with either extra Memory Fragments or random resources.
- Basic Training provides guaranteed x8.
- Intermediate Training provides guaranteed x20.
- Advanced Training provides guaranteed x30.

Defense Drill is a survival mode, it has a fixed cost of 5 energy and you can assign up to 4 echelons. The objective is to survive for up to 109 waves, each wave will give you a certain amount of Calibration Tickets, and every 10 waves there will be a boss which rewards you a package with resources, gems, and . The rewards increase with each passing wave.
Keep in mind that progress is saved and you cannot back out of the Defense Drill (or you lose), this means that packages are a one time reward. If you lose, the next time you will start at the wave after the last boss you have beaten. Losing with one echelon means all echelons go home, be careful.
The enemy composition changes between 5 and 10 waves and gets increasingly stronger each wave. At the later stages of the Drill, you will most likely need specialized compositions to get through. There will be night battles. Once you've completed all waves, you will start at wave 101, this means that you will only be able to farm after fully completing the Drill.

Each mode will get a different enemy lineup, which consists of one of the three opposing forces; Sangvis Ferri, KCCO, and Paradeus.
