The Star Wars Simulation (also known as SWSIM or Star Wars Sim) was the embryonic forerunner of the Star Wars Combine. SWSIM lasted from March 1995 until November 3, 1998, and culminated with a heavily disputed Rebel Alliance victory. The Star Wars Combine was launched shortly thereafter in December 1998 under the auspices of Sim Master Fizzban. Many players and groups in the SWSIM migrated to the Combine, but the Rebel Alliance notoriously did not, with only a few members joining.
Members of the Star Wars Sim who are still active in the Combine include:
- Vodo Bonias
- Alec Suba
- Michael Pangborn
- Jessy James
- Zee Wolf
- Jeff Knight under the name "Jeffery A. Clark"
- Andrew Starfyre
- Maniac, reborn as Daimon Luglok
- Yarbles, reborn as Zari Jinzler
