This is PlanetsCentral, a website for playing VGA Planets™3.x, a classic turn-based, play-by-email, strategy game. This website is home of the PlanetsCentral Automated Host, an automated game server (host), and PCC2 Web, a browser-based game client.

PlanetsCentral is committed to provide classic VGA Planets 3.x gaming for the 21st century.

See Site Help for help on the remainder of this site.


This site is built with lighttpd, redis, a few application servers (including the PCC2 server, c2server) in C++, and a ton of CGI scripts written in Perl. There is a list of host software currently installed on the server.

The JavaScript uses snippets inspired by Dean Edwards, Tino Zijdel, Diego Perini, and jQuery.
