Is there a way to add 'simulation off' warning to viewport? I can't even count how much time I spent 'troubleshooting' sim, just to remember that I have turned it off (the icon bottom right of the UI).

Thank you!

But you get a dynamics warning in the top of the viewport, isn't that obvious enough?

I'll have to see. Given that I have missed most of the scenarios where dynamics was off, I'm either not getting that in the viewport or not noticing it :-)

Maybe you need a colored warning? I created a red outline around the viewport using Qt for locked camera years before SESI added their own camera locked indicator in the viewport, but I still keep mine running.

So something like this could potentially help you here also.
