So, I saw in my blogs’ stats that someone came by, by searching for “how to install ikariam sexy theme”. Once more this saws how people, even if they don’t express in words, are easily read. Google owns us all. But what if we own google? I advise you to find out how to use smart keywords in order to find really useful things like top secret documents of governments, or databases with user names and passwords, or even online webcams with no security.
Anyway, back to our subject. First of all you have to use Firefox to install a script that will make your life easier. Then you shall add the greasemonkey add-on (by the way, as a good (wo)man that you are, think of a donation). Now to the most interesting part, by searching in google for “greasemonkey scripts” you will find what you want, but that would compromise you! So here is the direct link. You can thank me in comments by the way. Note here that some of these scripts are considered illegal.
Now, as for the useful ikariam scripts here are some. Ikariam Reloaded removes the silly ads, and replaces them with some useful stats like your selected city generals. But be careful with that! You can be found because you use too much bandwidth of their servers. Ikariam Empire Board, adds a table in the bottom of the page with information about all of your colonies. By using that you are not able to be found since it only reveals information once you’ve opened the exact page that it wants. Ika-core-SearchTools, adds an information bar on your left, with search capabilities, but you should be aware that you are easily spotted by using the search tool to find a players’ cities. However Ika-core-SerchTools are useful for their feature to inform you about you total army in your cities page, without going to your barracks, and also adds information on your city, about which buildings are available for your resources to upgrade.
And finally our most interesting part, the Sexy Theme. You can use it freely and no one will find that. I guess the wankers are using it already. Happy gaming fellow humanoids. God be with you!
Update: The problem for finding a players’ cities is solved with that tool.
Update 2: Seems that for some reason that page is down. But we were winning and without it, so…
Update 3: Here is the list of the legal scripts.
Update 4: The tool for finding players cities is down for sure.
Update 5: Seems the the script is valid in Chrome, too!! Wooooooooooooooo.
Ikariam is an MMO civilization style game. It’s browser based meaning it needs no graphics card, nor lot of space in your hard disk. It simply needs a browser and access to the internet, so you’ll be able to play even with the new Google Chrome OS (and that’s good news because you are going to install it when it’s released).
In ikariam, I have 4 cities, in islands with marble, wine, sulfur, and crystal glass. Each one is gathered by my men, and used for different causes, mainly military. I have entered an alliance, where we accept 1 vs 1, and is mostly military. What i love most in this game is that it’s played by grown people, most of them mentally healthy.
Recently I was attacked by a humanoid which had x4 points than me, but his military points were equal to mine. I have talked to it, but never received an answer, so I informed our general. Since he wanted to test his new military units, bombers, I let him attack, and I was astonished from the result. The city of my target was defended and by a teammate of his alliance, but my general had sent enough troops. During the attack my target warned my general that it would inform its own leader to attack him. It also said to retreat his troops in 5 minutes. lol, 5 minutes was his remaining life. After that I attacked too and looted the goods that he stole me. After that I attacked 2 more times and earned even more goods.
But that was not the end. I saw an attack coming from another city of it. The attack would reach my city in 1 hour, so I had time to prepare defence. I transferred units in my city and upgraded the wall, sent spies in its cities and saw its communications. I saw that it talked to its teammate, so I was for a double defence. It blocked my harbor, before I realised, and an attack was inbound from his teammate with troops I couldn’t even match. I was tricked and vulnerable at that time, and then diplomacy took place. My general talked to it and his friend. The attack had been retrieved, but after a while it was inbound again. 7 hours for the block to end and transfer my goods and units to another city, I couldn’t make it. I had closed all of my productions so it’ll not loot many goods. 3 minutes before the attack, it retrieved it. Not knowing exactly what happened I informed my general and he answered me that his is still negotiating. The leader of my alliance was involved too!!
At last the block ended, no attack until then. I transferred everything in another city and it all went well. Negotiations had worked, and justice has been given. After that an other player attacked me, with even more military points than me. I just communicated with him being ironic, and he retrieved his troops. WHAT THE HELL HAS HAPPENED? When I asked her (yeah the player had the nick “sexy”), she said that she retrieved her troops because I didn’t swear her. After that I sent her 2000 units of marble and she thanked me. I LOVED THAT MOMENT, SO SWEET :O !!
I recommend you all join ikariam, preferably in your local language since people are more talkative there. We even go for a real life cafe in our alliance! Also pick a good alliance which has members around you, not the most powerful though since the game would lose its meaning. Mine alliance is ranked 120th, and I really loved ikariam from that moment. I really think everyone in the government should play the game to see how things turn up in virtual world, like soldiers who are trained in video games. That way they would earn xp points and would be better politicians in real life. Whoahhh!!!
