This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Didn't someone make a Star Trek Combat Simulator clone?
« on: September 15, 2022, 08:32:12 PM »
I know there are a number of fan sites still around for the Star Trek Combat Simulator, but browsing them I haven't found any clone.

I seem to recall seeing that someone had created a clone of the simulator system itself, but this was several years ago. Did I imagine it?

You didn't imagine it.  I probably have a copy in one of my previous computer backups, but it's a matter of a) figuring out which one it's on and b) remembering the name of the clone in question.  If I figure it out I'll send it your way.

Thanks! It is so odd that it disappeared so completely from the Internet.

This website has a few of the old books in nice cleaned up PDF's format, plus other new resources. It's not an OGL clone, it likes like the real deal.  I've only taken a quick look but it looks like a '3rd edition' fan update? But again very nicely done.

They seem to keep reasonably up to date on the ships, too.

https://www.ststcsolda.space/ covers ships from further afield in the Star Trek timeline as well.
