Rocksim/optimal mass/ I've missed something

Ok, after some of the suggestions given here I finally got brave and loaded in Rocksim and fumbled my way through to do the designs I'd originally built in SpaceCAD. Things went along well enough until I let it calculate optimal mass. It gave me optimal for the sustainer alone on a 2 stage rocket. Either I've missed something or the beastie doesn't like multistaging. No, I can't look in any manual and such that came with it, that's a half state away with the original copy (last year's TARC team burnt me a copy after all the motors and stuff I donated freely to them, not to mention driving that far multiple times to RSO/LCO their launches). So to save time, have I missed something obvious? And how the heck do you get the graphics (and .rkt file) for what ya built out of the damn thing to show others?!

It's quite common, especially for minimum diameter rockets to be under optimum mass. A payload is the obvious solution.
