To interpret the complex observations of the solar atmosphere, numerical experiments are an increasingly important tool. The authors provide a recent realistic simulation of the magnetic outer solar atmosphere for public use. This will be an opportunity to improve the interpretation of solar data, in particular from the chromosphere, which is the dynamic and complex interface between the surface and the corona.
