About five years ago I used to play Winplan. Is the game still played
and is it still supported? If so, are there any websits I should look
at for updates. My copy of Winplan is quite old.

Shanks,
Loki

I was in the same boat a few weeks ago I played from first release (or
near to) till around 4 years ago. I could no longer justify the hours
I would spend per turn near endgame. But alas, can't stay away forever
and I have returned. I am now on turn 6 of my 2005 debut. Already
missed a turn :(  My time is not like it used to be.

Oh well.
Lets give it a go.
Maybe we should join forces as the Forgotten Elders.

The new versions can be found many places. Just google for it or look at
your favorite host site in the download section.

just to add my two favorite hosts:
http://www.navgap.com
http://www.planetsserver.com

And if you need some advice on the current host, look at
http://www.xs4all.nl/~donovan

Regards,
ingo

And the alternative host 'PHost' http://www.phost.de/ is still
alive. :-)

And the client VPA is open source now:
http://vpa.sourceforge.net

And EchoView is still alive:
http://www.nefo.med.uni-muenchen.de/~echoview/
(you should use the current beta version)

Sure enough, and I hope it will stay so. Otherwise I wouldn't be able to
update my little host I run.

Playing both host versions, there are always nice subtleties that are
different :) .

Hello,

www.rcworld.de (english host) has it both ... but whichever host you try ...
all have friendly planeteers around helping you for every problems you may
have ... rcworld also have an own download center for any updates/tools you
may need!

have a nice day!
