You can play using any VGA Planets™ client. Examples, in alphabetical order:
- DOS Planets (planets.exe), for MS-DOS;
- PCC, for MS-DOS;
- PCC2 Web, browser application running on this server;
- PCC2, for Windows and Linux;
- VPA, for MS-DOS;
- Winplan, for 16-bit Windows.
You can use PCC2 Web, but you don't have to.
PlanetsCentral is commited to provide compatibility with the whole VGA Planets 3.x universe, and I try hard to maintain compatibility with all add-ons and utilities that exist for the game.
