    Has anyone found any stat enhancers yet?


    a screenshot would be even better haha

    Same, I would love to see one!

    I was told by a faction mate, mrmud,  that the item image is what is used as the icon on the map after I described what the senet board I found looked like.  Checked the senet board in my items and the image was definatly the same.

    Something wrong with mine.

    3 days and I found one item today.

    I agree I've been less active but still from 12 items/3 days, 1 item per 3 day is terrible.

    Is it possible that leaving Ad Block on all the while can block spawns as well?

    I've had the same sort of decline and I don't use adblock or any other clever way to search. They've probably tweaked the item spawn rate or the randomness of it is supposed to leave dry days and happy days.

    I have average 1 every few days but I only have 1 merit in awareness+education.

    You can find 2 items at a time. Hope that helps.

    Okay. So it's not Ad Block. And I did find one item yesterday, so I think if it was Ad Block, I wouldn't even find that item.

    However, I think there is some other reason as well.

    Someone found 4 items yesterday (he posted in this thread earlier) and if he has, I'm sure there would be others finding 4 items or so as well.

    On the contrary, we who have been finding quite a few regularly are hardly spotting any.

    So, I think the happy day, dry day theory is a good one lol.



    And Beerstein, I have Awareness + 7 and the Edu course.

    I tried blocking the background and I admit it helps to a point, but its easy to lose track of where I am in the map, etc.  So...Greasemonky/Tampermonkey and http://pastebin.com/9S1cFGQ1 to reduce the opacity of the map itself.  The items stay the same. Just adjust the opacity as light as you want it to still be able to use the city, but make those items pop.   I find around 0.1 is pretty optimal for me.

    This is an absolutely wonderful block of code my friend. I don't have to strain my eyes anymore, and all the map requires is scrolling through. It feels like this is what the awareness merits were meant to do.

    I've found in one run: 2 Boxes of Grenades, 2 Glowsticks, 1 Box of Bon Bons, 1 MP3 Player, 1 Gold Necklace, 1 Crowbar, 1 Skorpian, 1 Pen Knife, and 1 Ketamine. Mostly trash items, but a lot of trash items.

    Install GreaseMonkey/TamperMonkey/whatever equivalent of these your browser uses, open up a new script, delete all the text on the new script already there, copy all of the text from the pastebin and put it into the new script, save, make sure it's enabled.

    Using Maxthon's ViolentMonkey or I'd give you some picture reference.

    ebcdic [1757971]

    I find that blocking "cdn.dev-www.torn.com/images/citymap/release/*png" with Adblock Plus makes items easier to find (the background is, mostly, a solid color: no buildings, roads, lakes, cars, ... to hide the items)

    This filter does not work anymore??

    what's the most valueable of item you guys found in city?

     New system or old?

    New is a lottery voucher/can of munster/xbox 360

    Old is senet board

    6/10 awareness for the better part of those, but over the last 2 weeks I've completed the 10% boost course and grabbed the 7th upgrade.
