ROS's simulator_gazebo is moving towards using system install of gazebo. The current outstanding issue is found here

It can do the same job, however the one under ROS uses a different model structure URDF(is beeing deprecated though). Whereas current gazebo uses *.SDF. Some standard settings might be different. However the main difference is that ROS comes with a large library of other robotics tools, and gazebo plugins, which you can couple to gazebo. Hence controlling your robots in under ROS is somewhat simpler(using nodes, services etc.), as what most people need is already programmed by others and added to the package. I prefer just plain gazebo, as i have no use for the ROS control.

thanks a lot, I find this question, and I try to using plain gazebo, because the turorial of simulator_gazebo is too less
