SE5 Utilities

Below are some useful utilities for Space Empires V. Many of these programs are over 10 years old and to run may require additional downloads like Microsoft's .net framework or other random .dlls to function.

Devnull's excellent Space Empires V data file editor provides a visual interface to edit a significant portion of SE5's data files.

The download is an installer which is required to run in order to identify where your SE5 install is located. The program's source is also included!

Note your web browser may flag this as a suspicious download. I promise nothing is nefarious with this file, but scan anyway!
