NationStates++ | Browser Extension for NationStates

Postby Eluvatar » Fri Nov 08, 2013 12:03 pm

NationStates++ (often shortened to 'NS++') is a tiny, light-weight, and open-source browser extension for NationStates. Focused on an easy-user experience, it is designed to simplify the NationStates game, provide players with more data and information to make educated decisions, and provide more powerful tools to interact with other players.



What Is A Browser Extension?
Browser extensions are tiny programs or apps designed to "extend" and add onto the existing features of your internet browser. All modern browsers support browser extensions, including Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Opera.

Why No Internet Explorer Support?
Internet Explorer is not an open web browser and frequently does not support official web standards. In addition, it does not support browser extensions, and is frequently a target for malware and viruses. I suggest all Internet Explorer users upgrade to a free, modern browser, listed above.

How Do I Know This Is Safe?
You don't. While NationStates++ is an open-source browser extension, and so any developer with Javascript experience can inspect the code, that is not a guarantee of safety. Nor is the fact that it is overseen by NationStates.net. Browser extensions do have an additional layer of safety, as the browser prevents addons or extensions from installing malware or harmful viruses. This layer of security does not protect you from extensions that steal personal information or login information from the site they apply to. Every program you install carries risk and relies on a certain level of trust. If you have specific concerns about safety or user security, you can telegram Eluvatar for additional information.

Who is in charge here?
Ultimately, [violet]. Currently, Sseroffa and Eluvatar are both developing the code and operating the NS++ service which the extension relies on. All three have access to the servers which are operating nationstatesplusplus.net. Eluvatar is maintaining the Chrome App store (used also by Opera users). Eluvatar and Sseroffa both have copies of the update signing key for the Firefox extension, and either may publish updates to it. The safari extension is currently being published by Sseroffa.

How is this changing?
While these plans are not necessarily entirely set in stone, the nationstatesplusplus.net and nspostmaster.com website and services will eventually be moved to servers operated by [violet] and Eluvatar, and the ability to upload updates to the extension will follow the same shift.

Additional Security Notes
The Nation Puppet Switcher only stores nations & password information locally in your browser local storage. This information is never transmitted anywhere, and never leaves your computer. In addition, I do not collect or monitor sensitive personal information or other identifying information.

Why I am I seeing an "Outdated NationStates++" warning banner?
Your browser likely does not have automatic extension updates enabled (this is a common problem with Safari). For Safari users, go to your preferences -> Extensions tab, and be sure to "enable" automatic updates. For Firefox users, go to Firefox -> Addons and click the settings gear in the upper right to ensure automatic updates are enabled.

Does this require us to keep our nation logged in and the browser open in order to work?

Randomizer:
The way recruitment works is that it targets the newest arrival (newest founded nation), then the next newest, then the 3rd next newest, etc. However, everyone is doing the same exact thing, so those nations are big targets. Maybe you don't want to be doing the same thing as everyone else. Instead of just going after new nations, you can randomly recruit from any nation founded in the last 24 hours.

Percent Allocated:
With the telegram API, you get 480 free recruitment telegrams a day. You can allocate 100% (all 480) to one type of recruitment. Or you can allocate 80% to recruit new nations and 20% to refounded. Or however you like.

Nation Filter:
Maybe you run a socialist dictatorship region. If you don't want to waste telegrams on Capitalist Democracies, you can filter out nations with 'capitalism', 'free-market', etc. Totally up to you.
