Aliens!
Version: v1.51
Type: Freeware
Author: Thore Schmechtig
Homepage: n/a
Publisher Description
They are big, black and malevolent.
They move unspeakably fast and kill silently.
They are perhaps the most terrifying nightmare of the universe.
Perhaps they did not even evolve naturally. Perhaps they are bioweapons.

If so, their creators surely regretted their crime for the short rest of their lives.
I need not say more. We've all seen the movies - or haven't YOU?

Yes friends - it's the ALIENS. And this time they're invading the Echo cluster.

Author: Dennis Weise
Homepage: n/a
Publisher Description

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.
 
 
 
 
Banzai!

Publisher Description
Every VPL player asks herself sooner or later "What the hell did Tim have in mind of when he made the Red Wind class carrier hull tech 8?! It's small, it's almost unarmed, it doesn't have any special mission...
...it's all but useless!"

Well, here's the answer to that old question: The Red Wind is...
...a mobile KAMIKAZE fighter launcher! ("Banzai!" is said to be an ancient Terran battlecry, dating back to Japanese suicide pilots in world war II)

Centaurian Legacy
Version: v1.0
Type: Freeware
Authors: Bret Lusskin & Pamela Hung
Homepage: n/a

Publisher Description
Centaurian Legacy is an add-on for Tim Wisseman's ever popular play-by-mail computer game, VGA Planets.

Long ago, well before any of the eleven races had arrived in the Echo Cluster, the concentration of stars was populated by an incredibly sophistocated and benevolent race of thinkers:  The Centaurians... Born amidst the ion-rich star cluster of the Echo, the Centaurians prospered and grew into a mighty empire that spanned the entire sector.  Their mammoth starships would inspire awe among anyone who was graced with their tremendous visages.  For millenia, the Centaurians thrived in the Echo Cluster, a proud civilization and monument of intellect and ethics.

Conquer

Author: Joe Thomas
Homepage:
n/a
Publisher Description
The basic premise was to attach some significance to the player's homeworld. In "generic" VGAP there is no real penalty for losing the homeworld. In the early game, if that is still the only starbase, they are probably sunk, but in the later stages of the game, with multiple starbases, they can probably recover. This was what I sought to change.
 
 
 
 
Crystaline Entity Reborn
Version: v1.4
Type: Freeware
Authors: Pavlos Chatzis
Homepage: Alb's Planets Site

Publisher Description
"Crystalline Entity Reborn" is a remake of the original "Crystalline Entity" addon, rewritten and compiled with more recent equipment to be compatible with modern CPUs.

The idea of the Crystalline Entity is from the Star Trek: The next Generation series. It's a really big lifeform that is able to live in space. However, as every lifeform it needs food to survive. The Crystalline Entity absorbs all life it can find on planets it encounters and transforms it into energy. That doesn't mean it's a killer, it's only trying to survive. But as always, those who ARE the food don't care much about this, they only want to destroy the thing that is going to kill them.

But the Crystalline Entity doesn't just leave lifeless rocks behind, there are sometimes a few lifeforms that are able to hide themselves and survive. As a byproduct of the transformation of life into energy, new minerals are produced known in Planets as Neutronium, Duranium, Tritanium and Molybdenum. These minerals will be buried deep in the ground of the planet.

Flagship
Version: v3.202
Type: Freeware
Author: Chris Holz
Homepage: Midspace

Publisher Description
Flag Ship is a new game scenario for VGA Planets, fully titled "Capture the Flag Ship"

Each player gets a special ship they have to protect at all costs. This ship is selected by the host, but some hosts may wish their players to choose what type of ship their Flagship will be. The ship is limited by the race.

Upon losing their ship, either by destruction or capture, the player has all of their ships, planets, bases and mine fields destroyed.

Which ever race captures or destroys the Flagship, may have a percentage of the planets, ships and Priority Build Points transferred to them.

Methods of gaining enemy assets are: Destruction by ship, destruction by planetary or base defences, ship capture, tow capture by Crystaline or Privateers, force surrender as base, or ship transfer via the "gs#" friendly code.

The program keeps a ranking of the players, providing a reliable means for getting tournament winners.

This is supposed to be an all out ship hunt, with the idea of making players concentrate more on trying to destroy other ships, not capturing planets.

The winner need only be whoever is left playing.

The Flag Ship can be limited to a set range from any planets, or from its Home planet, or allow unlimited range.

Homeworld
Version: v1.04
Type: Freeware
Author: Kenneth Strom
Homepage: The War Room
Publisher Description
I have had several requests to make a program that make the race's home world have some added value and added effects if it is captured by another race. So here it is.

Home World operates very simply. If the home world is captured from the original owner of the home world, some of the original owner's planets and ship may join the new owner. If the original owner of the home world recaptures it from an invader, some of the invader's planets may join the original owner. If the home world is destroyed, but not occupied, as when you capture the Crystals 100 temp home world, the effects are halved.

Any planet or ship that does join another race will probably have some damage or loss of crew/colonists, as the loyalists had to be disposed of before the ship or planet could join a new race.

Honeally (Host One Ally) was made to prevent super alliances from ruining games. Currently too many games seem to come down to large alliances which then end in stalemates because it gets time consuming to coordinate efforts. This program allows only one ally to be set at a time, any attempt to add an extra ally will be blocked, however, you can still break an alliance and form a new one.

With the convienence of controlled hyperspace travel comes risk. Each time a ship travels via Jump Gate, there is a small chance that an alien ship will exit the destination Jump Gate with the traveller. The aliens are a warrior race, intent on conquering all that they see. They will conquer the entire Echo Cluster unless stopped.

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.

 
 
 
 
Machines of Yore
Version: v1.41
Type: Shareware
Author: Dale Pope
Homepage: Machines of Yore Homepage

Publisher Description
The Machines Of Yore is an add-on for VGA Planets that scatters machines of differing functions on planets throughout the cluster. One machine provides an unlimited source of moly, another provides a more efficient form of transportation, another destroys ships lightyears away, and there are more.

These machines were constructed long ago by a very intelligent and argumentative alien species. Fortunately, this very intelligent and argumentative alien species also killed each other off long ago. Apparently, some sort of argument developed as to what engineering software was the best to design new machines. There were other arguments, too. Some wanted to be the Empire of Yorians, and others wanted to be the Empire of Yoreans. And others wanted to be the Empire of Yorelites. And others thought "of" was too wordy so they wanted to be the Yorelite Empire. As more and more others were created, they started attacking each other. Eventually, they had completely eradicated themselves from the universe. Which turned out to be a great thing for the new species!

Another great thing for the new races, all the machines were built of non-biodegradable material and are 100% intact!

Successful salvaging of debris will tell you what you discovered, and unsuccessful salvaging may mean you lose some systems, minerals, or even lose a relic.

Many types of relics exist. They range from computer viruses that cause ships, planets and bases to do strange things, to viruses that may affect populations, to high powered explosive devices capable of destroying or damaging anything within the blast radius.

Homepage: n/a

Publisher Description
Starbase+ 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 starbases with more inherent abilities. With this Addon, starbases can now lay mines, sweep mines. Transport starship componeSphere is a host add-on product for VGA Planets. It will convert any VGA Planets map that adheres to the standard coordinate system (1000 to 3000) into a torus, allowing ships that travel off one side of the map to reappear on the opposite side (e.g. a ship on the southern edge of the map can travel 100 lys south and be at the northern edge of the map). The default "seam" is 50 lys from the edge of the standard (i.e. X or Y < 950 or X or Y > 3050) but this may be configured to accomodate "compressed maps" (e.g. a map of 350 planets with all planets between 1500 and 2500).

This should make the game a bit tougher. No longer can a player put all his forces on his front lines and leave his rear areas undefended. The increasingly popular "Invasion" games should be a bit more challenging as Homeworlds may come under attack from the other side of the map. It should also end the complaint of those players who find themselves stuck in a corner of the map without any decent planets - just move to another corner.nts and transfer megacredits to your other starbases on the map.

Stargate is a host side add-on program for the game VGA Planets. It is written in C and uses the Portable Host Development Kit (PDK) to access the data structures. This means that it should be easy to port it to many platforms.

The idea of Stargate is to allow faster movement through the galaxy (in-game). This is done by building stargates with starbases and ships, and then travelling from one stargate to another. Stargate uses four extended commands and some control messages. The extended commands are:
- Build Stargate
- Deploy Stargate
- Use Stargate
- Destroy Stargate

 
 
 
 
Super Nova
Version: v1.20
Type: Shareware
Authors: Boris Psakhis
Homepage: n/a

Publisher Description
This VGA Planets add-on is an effort to "populate" the VGA Planets landscape, a feature wished for in the Planets newsgroup and elsewhere.

It is a known fact, that the average distance between stars is about 3-4 light years (ly). However, not every star has a habitable planet. That is why the average distance between the VGAP planets is often tens or more ly. With the help of Super Nova add-on, these "uninhabitable" and therefore invisible on the maps stars can explode, or "go super-nova", inflicting tremendous amounts of damage to the neighboring space, destroying or damaging ships, planetary structures, and other types of hardware. The challenge here is to make maximum use of these nova stars, towing them closer to the enemy territory and detonating them as close as possible to his planets or ships (and then possibly move in with your own starfleet, mopping up the remnants of the enemy's damaged planets and shattered economy).

Worm
Version: v5.05
Type: Freeware
Authors: Admiral Coeyman
Homepage: Animal Tech Games

Publisher Description
Wormholes are, quite simply, folds in the space/time continuum.
Travel through a wormhole can allow a ship to travel huge distances virtually instantly. The biggest downfall to wormhole travel, however, is their unstable nature. They are *NOT* jumpgates. Ships must endure unpredictable amounts of hull stress on their way through a wormhole. Also there is no way to know whether or not the wormhole will still be there when the ship wants to return.

On the plus side, a ship travelling through a wormhole expends an insignificantly small amount of fuel. They can also provide nearby planets with an additional source of income from scientific and commercial pursuits.
