Other:

List Fortress. An online repository of Second Edition tournament results. Everything from eight person kit tournaments to System Opens with hundreds of participants. It shows the format, the number of people, what lists they were flying, and the number of wins and MOV (Margin of Victory). All data is voluntarily submitted, so there may be some holes in the information depending on how in depth the submission was.

Pink Brain Matter. This is a recently released site that analyzes data from List Fortress. It can tell you the percentage of Rebel lists in major tournaments since the recent points change, and the percentage of those lists that took certain pilots, etc.

Probability Calculator. This will allow you to enter in a ton of variables for numerous different attacks to see expected damage under various circumstances. For those of us who are math impaired, it’s a vital tool.

Infinite Arenas. This awesome site has a number of tools available, including an unofficial rules reference, a card browser, and printable maneuver reference cards for most Second Edition ships, among other things.

X-Wing Mapper. This fantastic tool will show you all the available final positions of any ship in any faction. Toggle variations for Afterburners, Advanced Sensors, Supernatural Reflexes, or any other possibilities, choose your maneuver and see all the different places your ship could end up. 

We Tabletop. A searchable event locator. 

X-Wing Second Edition Wiki.

Metawing. An analysis tool to quickly find out what has had success and what hasn't.

Vassal is in need of a small subsection. You could out in a bunch of condensed lines together. You linked the official vassal website, but unfortunately, it's slow on the uptake whenever a module is released. It also requires many steps into their clunky website and offers very little help in getting set up. Not saying you should remove it, since it's where you get the client, but for the module, there's something better:

Quick download page for the X-Wing module: https://github.com/Mu0n/XWVassal/releases

Hands on guide for installing and playing: http://xwvassal.info/guide

Reporting issues + find out which are already dealt with: https://github.com/Mu0n/XWVassal/issues

Hub for the Vassal league: http://xwvassal.info

Oli_186th's tutorial video: https://youtu.be/jGmTvzPSPYA
 

 

These ones can be in another section:

 

Xwing-data2, the data repository which feeds the vassal module and a bunch of other projects (including some squad builders) - mistakes and omissions in the ship and pilot data might be repaired here:

https://github.com/guidokessels/xwing-data2

Dial generator (both 1.0 and 2.0):

http://xwvassal.info/dialgen/dialgen

Critical card lookup (1.0, epic, 2.0)

I understand this is a lot of work so thanks for putting it up, but can you foresee adding credits for these resources? The people responsible for these have often worked hard for little or no compensation and its doubly important imo to recognize their contributions.

@Mu0n729 Thanks for all the info about vassal. I've barely used it myself, so all the addition links would've never come up for me. 

As to adding in credits for all the content creators, that is something that I would love to do. I am a content creator myself, and always appreciate acknowledgement, so I'm sure others do as well. Wanting to acknowledge everyone who contributes to this community is partially what started me down the path that lead to gathering all the information that ended up in this post. That being said, for the time being I'm focused on trying to keep the list of links up to date and to check out and transfer all the suggestions I get in the little free time I have. So, to answer your question... yes, I could foresee it happening. But not anytime soon. It's a great thought though.
