In addition, there exist several specific web pages that are very useful.
http://www.vgaplanets.ca/vgapcalc.php — Planets Calculator does a lot of math for you.
There used to be a nice graphical web interface at "http://thales.math.uqam.ca/~tremblayj/planets.nu/minefields.html" that showed the chances of surviving a run through a minefield. Unfortunately, this is no longer available. As a stop-gap replacement, an Excel spreadsheet was created. It can be found
http://markdepot.com/intercept.html — Marklein has created a spreadsheet to help you to avoid interception.
http://onebit.ca/cgi-bin/vgaplanets.py/Shipyard — This is a spreadsheet to help players to determine the military score of a starship.
http://planets.nu/_library/whisperer-scripts/researchgame.html — This web page is used to research the history of players in a game and individual players and their history. When researching an individual player, the following information is displayed for each race they've activated: Rank, Year Started, Games Played, Games Active, Games Completed, Average Ending Position, Turns Played, Achievement, Highest Badge Achieved at the various levels, Experience, Tons Sunk, Tons Captured and Defense Destroyed. It is also possible to check the Player Information and "Player Affinity" (term coined by CrystalCT in his Intelligence Center plugin) for all players in the player's last 5 games, or in the player's entire game history. It also has the ability to check the Player Information and "Player Affinity" for a game.
http://planetscentral.com/play/sim.cgi?shiplist=stdlist — This simulator is an extended version of the Planets.nu VCR, and is intended to simulate battles. Most Campaign starships can't be used in this simulator. NOTE: By default, this simulator uses VGAP4 (PHOST) combat rules, which are different from Planets.nu combat rules, so be sure to select
to get the correct combat rules.
Finally, you'll find more links in our
Guides section and scattered throughout the documentation.
The PlanetsMag website is a
WordPress site that uses the
Wordfence plugin for security. There are occasional issues with this plugin incorrectly blocking users, generating a "Your access to this site has been limited" error. The only known workaround is to use an HTTP proxy service.
