Asteroid
Version: v2.23
Type: Shareware
Authors: Dan & Dave
Homepage: Dan & Dave Software
Publisher Description
Asteroid is an add-on utility for VGA Planets 3.5 that takes advantage of the AUXHOST features found in HOST 3.20. This add-on provides the capability for players to capture asteroids and tow them to planets for added mineral resources and the ability gather Quadbenium (a new mineral) from the surface of the asteroid and use it as a super fuel.

With the added spacelane activity comes some risk. Each time an Asteroid is generated there is a chance that it might stike a planet. These Asteroids have no minds and wander blindly throughout the Echo Cluster. If they strike a planet damage will result.

HostCon - Host Control
Version: v0.82
Type: Donationware
Authors: Dan & Dave
Homepage: Dan & Dave Software
Publisher Description
This utility is designed to help HOST to create and host their game in a much speedier fashion. This is a windows based application and so you need Windows 3.1 or higher to use this program.

This program provides easy one stop game set up and hosting. You can set up 10 games from HostCon, do auto-hosting, auto-backups, add-on setup and a lot more. We apologize for the size of the ZIP file but this program was developed using Visual Basic v4.0 and quite a few DLL's that you likely do not have had to be included. But we think you will find the size of the download worth it with this program.

Lurkers / Stormfront
Version: v1.01
Type: Shareware
Authors: Cliff & Dave
Homepage: Dan & Dave Software

Publisher Description

Lurkers
This is a multi-part VGA Planets Add-on. It will serve a two fold function. It will offer a target as a kind of Computer Player for people wishing to play as a group against a common enemy. It will also act as a background (add-on) to normal games of VGAP. This program can operate in three different modes.

  • Mode 1 - (Team)
    This is the operating version where the LURKERS will be considered the "Big Nasty Bad Guys." They have come openly and with hostility to the Echo Cluster. They are out to exterminate all of the existing races. They come armed for bear and all they want to do is destroy. The players will have to play together to withstand the attacks of the LURKERS and they can expect to loose some of their number.
  • Mode 2 - (Harass)
    This version is a weaker and slower propagating version of Mode 1. This version of the LURKERS will move about the Echo Cluster and harass the different races randomly. Attacking quickly and nastily. They pick from the top scoring players and harass them for a short time, before picking a new target.
  • Mode 3 - (Ally)
    This is the operating mode where LURKERS will be more of a background influence. They will sneak quietly into the Echo Cluster. Intent upon using one of the existing races as a puppet to bring down the other races. The will come quietly and select one of the races as an ally. The race chooses if they want to accept the alliance with the LURKERS.

    As your ally the LURKERS can be ordered to defend planets for you and they will. They can gather spy information for you from enemy planets and they can even be persuaded to attack enemy planets.


    In exchange they ask that you provide them with materials to build ships and occasionally you have to go attack targets that they select for you. If you are successful and accomplish your missions, they will stay happy and help you. If eventually you displease them (they loose ships attacking for you, you don't make proper deliveries of resources, ect.) they will leave to select a new ally, and in leaving they will chastise you for failing them.

StormFront
StormFront is a 3rd party add-on for VGA Planets that uses the new third party features in VGA Planets host 3.2x. This program allows the player, through the use of a device that they build and attach to their ship, to manipulate the power and/or heading of an Ion Storm in a game of VGA Planets.

Type: Shareware
Authors: Dan & Dave
Homepage: Dan & Dave Software

Publisher Description

Items range from more beam or torp weapons to new super weapons.

With this new system you can play games that go by quickly and never take too long to play. The RAW! game system makes turns short and no matter how many turns you play your turn should never get much longer than the first turn you played. Perfect for the person that loves VGAP but is short on time!
