Publisher Description
VGA Planets is a graphical, multi-player, play by electronic mail, space war game. This game simulates combat in space between galactic scale empires. The game emphasizes colonization of space and the development of the planets that you will find, colonize and/or conquer. How well you develop these resources will determine what kind of starships (freighters and capital ships) you will be able to produce and how well you will be able to defend your space and attack your neighbors.

Type: Freeware
Author: Kero van Gelder
Homepage: The JVPC Home-Page

Publisher Description
JVPC is the J ava V GA- P lanets C lient. JVPC is a portable client, running on virtually every JVM you can lay your hands on. It is small enough to run on decent PDA's without becoming too slow. Accompanying JVPC is VPCheck , which can perform various Checks (probable mistakes in your commands) and Actions (automatic command for various boring tasks).

Please Note :

  • JVPC accepts VGA-Planets 3.x (DosPlan) data only, (no WinPlan and no VGAP 1.x, 2.x or 4.x),
  • JVPC was initially aimed at PHost games (reads pconfig.src , mission.ini and hullfunc.dat , but now also messages about minefields and ionstorms are parsed. WinPlan has yet to be done.
  • Shareware planets version detected, but not dealt with,
  • All source is released under the GNU GPL or GNU LGPL!
PCC - Planets Command Center
Version: v1.1.18
Type: Freeware
Author: Stefan Reuther
Homepage: The PCC Home-Page

Publisher Description
Planets Command Center (or PCC for short) is a complete front-end program for Planets. It started as a message-reading and starcharts-with-ion-storms tool in late 1995, and can now be used to play complete turns.

PCC is freeware. It will maintain the shareware limitations of Planets if you don't have registered an original client program, and it will benefit of your registration if you have one.

PCC runs on any computer from a 386 onwards. It is a DOS program, but has been tested under Windows 3.x, Windows 9x, and in Linux's DOSEMU; and may even run on NT. For best comfort, use anything that has 66+ MHz and some Megs of RAM.

VPA - VGA Planets Assistant
Version: v3.63
Type: Freeware
Author: Multiple Developers
Homepage: VPA Project Page @ Sourceforge.net

Publisher Description
VGA Planets Assistant (VPA) is an alternative VGA Planets client program for MS-DOS. Suggestions from many experienced players were used in the program design. VPA implements a number of unique features that are unlikely to be ever seen in other VGAP utilities.

VPA works with great performance even on a 286 PC under MS-DOS with plain VGA video adapter and doesn't require you to buy an expensive Pentium/SVGA workstation or mess with MS Windows. VPA is an add-on to DOS PLANETS.EXE, though you'll never have to start PLANETS.EXE any more. And I bet you'll never want to... <g>

VPA will keep your PLANETS registration - if you were registered all tech levels and friendly codes will be available to you, if you were using shareware PLANETS.EXE all the limitations will remain. But in any case your play will be amazingly enhanced and simplified.
