2016.1 - Simulation - How do I generate simulation scripts for use outside of Vivado?

Description

In previous versions of Vivado I would click on Simulation Settings and check the "scripts_only" option to generate simulation scripts for my design.

I notice that the option is missing in Vivado 2016.1. How do I generate simulation scripts for use outside of Vivado?

Solution

launch_simulation is being transitioned to be an integrated simulation option only and the -scripts_only option has been deprecated.

It is scheduled to be removed from future versions of Vivado. Xilinx recommends you to use the export_simulation Tcl command.

In the Vivado IDE you can find export_simulation via File > Export > Export Simulation.

Please refer to (UG900) for assistance on using export_simulation, or in the Vivado Tcl Console you can run the following:

export_simulation -help
