Planetary Annihilation mod, multiplayer campaign mode.
A multiplayer version of the Planetary Annihilation singleplayer campaign.
A standalone application created in C# using the Otter SFML framework runs the campaign logic – that is player movement, capturing systems, & unlocking new technologies. Using UDP networking, players take turns to move their armies and to battle for systems. When a battle is started this application outputs the currently unlocked technologies into the mod, allowing the players to switch to Planetary Annihilation for the actual battling. Afterwards the results of the battle are input back into the standalone campaign application, and the victors are rewarded.
