A variety of tools and websites exist to help players. These have been developed by the community of players. Use of them can aid planning, improve usability of the game, or track statistics.
- Battle simulators can be used to forecast the outcome of a battle or missile launch.
- Calculators can be used to find the cost of certain activities or upgrades, or plan out how to achieve a goal.
- Stat and Research sites provide useful information about a universe and the players in it.
- Add-ons are extensions that improve the usability of the game. You can only use add-ons that have been approved by Gameforge or you may be banned from the game. (See rules)
This page lists a variety of available tools, but is by no means an exhaustive list. Experienced players or alliances often have their own personal spreadsheet based calculators or tracking systems. Joining a long standing alliance in an older universe is often a way to discover additional tools developed by that alliance or not widely known.
