NOTICE: With the release of Firefox 3, most of these plug-ins will no longer work until the creators update them. For those who still want to use Firefox 3, there are ways to allow these extensions to install. However, doing so may pose security risks on your browser, and it is entirely the user's responsibility whether or not to proceed in installing these extensions in FF3.
If you wish to continue using an extension, there are several options:
- Keep using Firefox 2.
- Install the Nightly Tester Tools extension, which lets you override compatibility for individual extensions.
- Firefox 3 compatible extensions - unofficial updates to several extensions.
- UDBrain Extension - Uses a MySQL database to track the barricade status of all buildings in Malton. Users will see the abbreviated barricade report of all buildings in the database printed on their map, and will automatically submit barricade reports of all buildings they visit to the database. This database can be viewed in its entirety at on the UDbrain website, making it very easy to figure out what buildings likely contain recently active survivors whose players use this extension. (NOTE: Requires a version check override such as Add-on Compatibility Reporter to function.)
- UD Automapper Automatically maps Urban Dead - made for the mapping of Monroeville - to install, allow ud.malton.info to install add ons - the map updates every five minutes from its data.
- z-udtool Modified version of UDTool that adds various, mostly zombie, features such as player list reorganization and quick attack buttons in addition to everything UDTool has. No longer updated. Only works on firefox 0.9 -> 1.16
- Urban Dead Toolbar Want to get the most out of Urban Dead? Offers a graphical mini-map and inventory, quick menus for fast attacks, a DEM revive request tool, and a toolbar with many useful links for the game.
- Urban Dead Homing Beacon Lets you know how far it is back to your home base, and calculates the AP you need to return.
- Peeko Feature Rich and stable software for chatting to people on the same site as you.
- Urban Dead Centered Map
