I'm trying to remember an old space melee game i used to play i want to say in the late 90's either on windows 95/98/2000 . it was set in space and it was multi player you could add more human opponents or AI opponents. it was kind of like pocket tanks but with spaceships and set in space it had better graphics than pocket tanks, and was turned based. each player had their own ship and the objective was to destroy everyone elses ship, turn by turn. you had interesting weapons like missiles, and terraforming (inserting a planet in front of certain characters. planets had gravitational pull and this would affect you if you were to move or shoot a weapon Anyone know what it was called? I vaguely remember playing it around the pocket tanks time frame as well if that helps at all. Thanks

One game that comes to mind for me is Star trek Birth of the federation as it was turn based, ship building and others you just mentioned, came out about 98 if im correct. Really cant think of any others tbh but good luck on your quest.

unfortunately thats not it. it has similar looking space graphics but doesn't have 3d looking ships like that, more 2d. appreciate the effort though

A friend of mine used to play a game called Galactic Civilizations. Thats about the only turn-based space strategy game I know of.

Hey friend, I'm looking for that exact same game. I had a software disk back in the 90's called Games Surplus and it had a bunch of MS-DOS and Windows games on it. I had a demo of the exact same game your talking about.

I know because you were talking about shooting terraform missiles or whatnot and some of the other missiles were like the moon walker where if you shoot it then it expands into something that looks like this o----o then it would walk on the planet and explode.

It also had missiles that would burrow into the planet to try and get the other ship on the other side! As well as the spreader missiles where it would be one missile when it left the ship then it spreads out to multiple ones. Oh and don't forget the bouncing betty( that's what I like to call it) It would just bounce around and explode on contact with anything.

I remember it was kinda the same concept as worms where you could change your trajectory and power because of the multiple fluctuations of gravity the planets had.

I'm leaning toward it being called Endgame or Wargame or something like that because it had a really cool title screen when you started.

Homeworld doesn't have terraforming, and is definitely not turn-based.

I gave OP an entire list of possibilities. Not sure if he's worked through them all yet.

This goes to show you can think better on the toilet. I just remembered it was called Warheads. I feel so much better now.
