Testing your own network has a number of gameplay issues, such as the risk of players being discouraged from changing their network once it's tweaked to "perfection", and the fact that players would spend more time "attacking/testing" themselves than others!

To get the same or better results of testing your own network, we hope that players will engage with their friends to request a 'test hack' from each other by using the simulation feature. Not only does this method of testing result in not losing programs or resources, we also believe that other attacking players will find strengths/weaknesses in a base that a player wouldn't be able to detect themselves! In addition to that, we believe it's a lot more interesting, gameplay and entertainment wise, to view someone else attacking you and analyzing where things can be improved.

All that being said, we are aware some players want this feature and we may reconsider adding something similar to it in the future. :D
