I am curious. In a tournament i played a few months ago I noticed people were running some scripts 1 person sat at stardock and another one was out ssting. I am in a game where I can have 2 accounts and I would like to set this up so that 1 person is good and 1 person is bad so i can cash. Anyone up for the challenge on explaining this one to me? lol.

It's called furbing. When you bust, you lose 10% of your holds. The less holds you have,
the less you can steal, the less money you make and less experience you get per steal.
Result? You need to keep your holds up.

So, furbing is where a fedsafe blue tows a merf to the busted red. The red then blows the
furb and gets some of the holds. There's a simple formula for figuring out how many holds
you need to buy on the merf so that the busted guy fixes their holds. So basically the
blue gets the merf setup, tows it out, the red blows it up, and is ready to continue on.

There are many different furbing scripts. The one you probably saw in action was the mombot
furb. It can be accessed via the bot with the "furb" command. It has some bugs, but works
if you do it right.

comet, just wanted to let you know that you are currently playing on my server. If you didn't already know that. I'm Dakkon/Drake!

I personally just set up my own macro for furbing...it works pretty good, you just have to watch out for when the ship numbers change! Creating it is pretty easy, so if you want, I can walk you through it!
