PCC2 Web is a program you can use to play your turns.
It consists of PCC2 running as an application server, and a browser application talking to it.
It works on original VGA Planets file formats, and can therefore be used interchangeably with a "classic" client. All game rules continue to apply, all add-ons can continue to be used. The game can be hosted on any host — even on your local computer —, it needn't be hosted on PlanetsCentral. Likewise, a game hosted on PlanetsCentral needn't be played with PCC2 Web.
The web application is still incomplete. It's far from being as featureful as PCC2 or PCC 1.x. However, since it's based on rock-solid PCC2 technology, it is very safe to use, even if it's still young. Just some highlights:
- supports PHost and HOST
- easy ship building (no need to build individual parts)
- extended missions and friendly code selection lists
