Ok back in the day (1995 or so) my friend and I use to play this windows based space game over our modems. It was not a fullscreen or dos game of any kind, it was a small window in windows, there was a grid in which you discovered the universe in and you claimed planets as your own etc, mined resources etc. The extent of the graphics were the planets, your little ship, other ships, etc. All the activities were pop up windows with buttons to press.

Anyone know what this game was called its killing me I loved that game.

No it wasn't that advanced of a game, it was a win32 type game. I am almost certain it was a shareware game.

I think Im looking for the same game.
As I recall it the game ran in a not so big window. You saw a top view of the solarsystem with the positions of the planets. You also saw the ships and their courses.
The fun part in that was that the planetairy orbits affected the time the ships took to get to the other planet.
Also, you could send a number of ships to a certain system, more planets meant more minerals.
The goal was to eradicate the other player(s).
It was a turn-based concept, in your turn you could send out ships, build new ones, send ships to other planets you owned, etcetera etcetera..

I hope someone can help find the game!

EDIT: I have found it, the game I was searching for is called Solar Wars.
I was wrong in the window size, it needs to be at least 1024x768.
Linky: Solar Wars

No. Solar Wars is freeware, and will not be hosted on AB. All that remains now is to find out if this is indeed the game that was requested in the initial post.
