The word client is used to refer to the program used by players to play their turns (ie. give their orders for their ships, planets and starbases).

The original client program is Tim Wisseman's planets.exe, also known as DosPlan. It has many limitations and is not widely used any more.

Tim Wisseman also wrote WinPlan, a Windows client. Many players use this.

There are two very popular 3rd-party client programs:

1. Planets Command Centre (PCC), written and maintained by Stefan Reuther.

2. VGA Planets Assistant (VPA), originally written by Alex Ivlev but sadly no longer maintained.

There are numerous other 3rd party clients, including two for Java (JVPC and JVC and two for Linux (xk and GWP).
