Well, I haven't gotten a reply from hotshot, so I'll post it here in the meantime. Just wondering if something like this is worth posting on the OP. I would really appreciate your opinions.

Are you a Firefox user? Want to make the most of Urban Dead? Tired of dying because of over-barricading? If you said yes to any of these, I highly suggest considering UDBrain, the all mighty tool that can greatly aid survivors in their battle against the zombie apocalypse (or help in our defeat, depending on how you look at it).


How to Install UDBrain (for Firefox users only):

Step 1: Install Greasemonkey (100kb) - This allows Firefox users to utilize the many Greasemonkey formated scripts. UDBrain and UDBrainMap are Greasemonkey scripts. Restart Firefox after installing Greasemonkey.

Step 2: Install UDBrain (16kb) - This script provides useful information on your Urban Dead mini map (Barricade levels of adjacent buildings and how old data is).

Step 3: Install Ben2's UDBrainMap (16kb) - This GM script goes hand in hand with UDBrain. It takes the information of UDBrain and applies it to a fully functional map of the entire city of Malton. Providing not just barricade levels, but also the number of zombies in each block (both inside and outside of buildings).

(UDtoolbar/UDGraphicalEnhancement is not included with these scripts):

Note:
These extensions/scripts are all optional. But since UDBrain updates whenever a UDBrain user moves over a block, the more users, the more accurate the information. Knowledge is half the battle... G.I.Joe~!

100% worth putting in the OP. You should also link to UDTool and the Rogue's Gallery thing.

Cool, well, I'll try to work on a lil' sumthin' sumthin' for UDTool and Rogue's Gallery. Too bad HotShotX is too busy playing with his "Master Chief". ;P

They just did the NecroTechs yesterday, didn't they? I wouldn't think there would be any hostiles at Marven aside from Death Cultists for a few hours yet.

Finding and Preventing PKers with UDTool/Rogue's Gallery (Firefox users only)

UDTool is a helpful firefox extension that further enhances the Urban Dead experience. Its most noteable feature is that it points out PKers (Player Killers) via downloaded PKer list.

How to use this Feature:

Step 1: Install UDTool - *warning, the site has massive pop ups/advertisements as of late* You can download either version (0.6.6a or 0.7.0). From my experience, 0.7.0 is stable enough that it rarely crashes. If you're using Firefox 2.0.0+ (especially with other extensions/Greasemonkey scripts) I would suggest 0.7.0 since it provides more support for it. Restart Firefox once you install this extension.

Step 2: Download PKer List - Go to Rogue's Gallery and click on UDTool list. Save this text file anywhere you want (remember where you saved this file). Rogue's Gallery is a constantly updating database of PKers, providing reports of PKs, bounties, locations, etc. It is a very useful source of information.

Step 3: Load PKer List into UDTool - Start Firefox if you haven't already. Go to tools > UDTool > Change/Load List and click "open existing" on the window pop up. Open the UDTool list you downloaded earlier.

Viola! PKers names will now be highlighted in Red in Urban Dead. On mouseover it'll display their bounty. The higher the number, the more dangerous. As for the ones with KOS (Kill on Sight) status, do just that. It even highlights Past PKers (no bounty) in Pink.

Screenshots:
PK Alert!
Spoiler


Remember to keep this list updated as often as possible. Just repeat steps 2 and 3 to do so.

I hope UDTool will empower you to defend yourselves and carry out justice. Go get 'em Tiger.

Note: If you're running other extensions/scripts, it is helpful to go into UDTool's option menu (via extensions window) and uncheck Safe Mode and Inventory Combiner. A couple other extensions/scripts have conflicts with these, especially Inventory Combiner.

Zoe Gorefest's Guide for the Career PKer (I do not condone PKing, but reading this can help in preventing PKing/knowing how PKers think)

1: Heh. Viola.

2: This is weird. Out of curiousity, I opened up UDTool a while ago. It froze, and I disconnected and ate supper. When I came back, it worked just fine. Guess the freezing is temporary. Dunno how long it takes to subside, though...

'Sup bitches? I spent most of my Zack AP catching up, but got revived close to the current target.

So I'm in, breathing and I don't think I'm infected...

South of our new location there's a pair of police stations, the one on the right is powered.
I couldn't get jack for searching tonight but oh well, there is a redrum102 guy in there though.
Not sure if he's hostile or active but just a head's up that he's in that bldg as of right now.

As to the issues with all the UD apps; be like me and play on a pc you don't own and can't modify! What Firefox/'Zilla toolbar?
Straight IE all the way, no freezing and your screens look just like the sceenshot on the UD main page. Awwww yeah....sweet!


Geno: Thanks for the pm, good lookin' out.

Check your PMs, Budge.

Notably, UDBrainMap seems to be working now, but UDBrain itself is still freezing.

Lordy, Lordy. Gee Avenue had over 50 zombies waiting for a revive.

I'm hiding pretty good with zombie hordes.

Brymer Auto Repair in South Blythville is still safe if you don't count the 10 zeds sitting outside. LOL.

Sorry bud, trying to figure out why you're freezing... Guess that's not it.

How about UDTool version? haha

Things were freezing before I got UDTool.

And I'm using the 6.something version.
