New tool STTEVE available to STT community (BETA)

Hello.
I'd like to introduce a new tool for Star Trek Timelines community - STTEVE (Star Trek Timelines EValuation and Extraction). Available at https://stteve.eu
This tool takes your game data in JSON format and creates CSV files ... just like famous DataCore.

Why should I bother if DataCore does the same?
Because STTEVE adds new columns with additional information to "crew.csv" and "ships.csv" files and also generates completely new CSV files.
What's new:
* crew.csv - columns to distinguish and identify crew duplicities, base skill values, arena bonus ability divided into type and value, skillsets calculated from current skill values, crew levelling cost, CAB Power Ratings values
* ships.csv - current and maximum level in separate columns, verbose information about all ship's battlestations
* gameinfo.csv - verbose information about your game (basic stats, fleet, buffs!, replicator uses, shuttles, factions, voyage!, campaign, events, achievements, collections and more)
* tinygameinfo.csv - excerpt from "gameinfo.csv" that contains only basic stats, buffs!, voyage!, replicator uses, scans and crew retrieval currencies
* crewretrieval.csv - you crew retrieval inventory (polestars, constellations; and current amount of ISM and quantum to provide complete information)
* viablevoyager.csv - Viable Voyager Tool related data (calculated for all crew, not only legendaries)
* Configuration options that allow you to have control over the generated content. For example, you can generate CSV files "almost compatible" with DataCore.
* Option to download all CSV files in single ZIP file to save your time.

Who can be interested in STTEVE?
1. Players who created their own spreadsheet with game data (just like me) and use CSV files from DataCore to maintain it with current data. STTEVE can provide you with more data to sort, filter and analyze.
2. Authors of other community tools. The "tinygameinfo.csv" file can give you information about player's buffs and voyage so that players wouldn't have to enter these values manually in the spreadsheet. (Could be interesting for @Captain Idol, @cmdrworf and others.)

Status of STTEVE
Consider STTEVE to be in BETA phase right now. It works well with my game data but I need to test it with more game data from another players. BETA also means that the structure of CSV files could change according to your requests for new features.
I will welcome your feedback, bug reports and feature requests. You can post your feedback in this forum or submit it on newly created STTEVE Discord server https://discord.gg/pxCEuuzc5J
Thank you.

Credits:
STEVE uses some data from another community tools and projects with the consent of their authors - specifically: DataCore, CAB STT Power Ratings, Crew Cost Viewer and The Viable Voyager Tool. Many thanks to @(A) Traveling Man, @JimBerlin and the dev team of DataCore.
And of course, big thanks to WRG/TP for creating the Star Trek Timelines game. And to @Shan for passing me useful recommendations.

Please be patient when you push the button to generate output files in STTEVE. It takes some time to upload about 3 MB of game data to server. And more time to process the data and create required files. The file download should start in 10 seconds, at the latest.
