#' @title A helper function that produces a call to a simulator function for specific settings
#' @description This function takes a modelsettings structure and uses that information
#' to create an unevaluated function call that runs the simulator function with the specified settings
#' @param modelsettings a list with model settings. Required list elements are: \cr
#' List elements with names and values for all inputs expected by simulation function. \cr
#' modelsettings$simfunction - name of simulation function in variable  \cr
#' @return A string containing an unevaluated function call with the specified settings
#' @details This function produces a function call for specific settings.
#' @export
