Scripts and Extensions

Scripts and extensions are allowed to a certain extent, any form of automation of game mechanics is disallowed, unless they are built in.
Things which are not allowed
Any form of usage, distribution or development of extensions which communicate with the game server, are not allowed and will result in a ban.
Only allowed way to communicate with the server and send requests, is by the game's own UI. Things which are not allowed for example:
  • Having a relisting button in marketplace. This directly communicates with server by sending first a unlist request, and then a market listing post request.
  • Fetching prices of market items. This would send requests to server to fetch the prices for individual items.
  • Adding a hotkey to augmenting.
Things which would be allowed
  • Having additional metrics, exp/hm, etc., in resource nodes.
  • UI changes and new UI element, as long as they don't SEND requests to server.
  • Show in UI what buffs from equipment you have active.

These guidelines are non exhaustive, moderators and administrators will moderate at their discretion.
