What are these for and why would I use them?

Simple explaination: simulated functions are executed on the client not just the server, though there are complications to it.
Read Mongo's Replication De-Obfuscation ( http://www.planetunreal.com/pipeline/tutorials/replication.html ) and be enlightend.

Remember any simulated functions *must* be called by simulated functions, otherwise they won't be called on the client. Don't break the simulated train... :)

And remember that any ROLE >= ROLE_AutonomousProxy can also execute functions without being simulated. I once had a hard problem with a dumbproxy, because the simulated functions out of it where called, but nowhere is stated that no clientside events can be used on them.
