Because the best old Stars! websites keep quietly disappearing all of the utilities below have download links from Stars!wiki itself, if you are the author of any of these files and would like a file to not be available from Stars!wiki, please contact Gible to have it removed. Where possible, links to files' homepages or original web locations are included. - feel free to add any we missed.
You can also help by writing the individual articles for the utilities that require installation or usage instructions, or just coz they deserve it.
