Planets Command Center (PCC)

Name: Planets Command Center (PCC) Author:  Stefan Reuther
Type: Client Website: Planets Command Center Homepage

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.
