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. Since 2021, both the back-end server as well as the browser front-end are based on the PCC2 Next Generation variant.
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 currently has fewer features than the desktop version of PCC2, but otherwise aims for the same level of convenience:
- supports PHost and HOST;
- multi-ship battle simulator with FLAK support;
- easy ship building (no need to build individual parts);
- extended missions and friendly code selection lists.
