Scraping legal?

  • Is legal to do web scraping in order to get info about players, habs, villages, etc.? Moreover, anyone knows a way to do it? Thanks!

    So the legality of this lies in scripting. Any sort of automated ingame data collection is defined as scripting in the game rules I believe. However, there is a fairly useful resource file available to the public, which you can auto-collect. If you go to "ts1.travian.us/map.sql" [obviously change to your server name] you will get an SQL table with every village, the name of the owner, the pop, the tribe, and the alliance of the village as well as a bunch of internal IDs which are very useful and I've used to create a number of tools. This table updates once a day.
