The simc_gui.simc file contains all settings of the last simulation performed by the SimulationCraft GUI, including all options selected, overrides and the profiles simulated.

It serves as a documentation of the input used for the simulation, which can be use to replicate the exact same simulation with the command line client (CLI).

More importantly, it can help to replicate errors/bugs encountered by users if they share the simc_gui.simc file with developers in a bug report.
