I thought I'd start a thread on your thoughts for defeating scripting.

I'll start with what I feel is a difficult thing to work around.

At random intervals(after X number of Jewels), you should prompt the player to type in a code using an interface similar to that which is used to prevent auto-signups for your forum.
For example, after 100 Jewels, it forces me to open the browser, and type in GH89J3K.
If I fail 5 times, I can't collect jewels for 1 hour.

This shouldn't be impossible to do, and would really piss off the scripters(they'd have to man the scripts!).

From the other side,
Stanley

My new idea (with the security code link in the description) required that you open a web browser anyhow, so I figured "why not ask for image verification every time?".

All in all, it's more of a pain to collect jewels, but should help prevent the scripts.

Details are here (http://www.googleearthhacks.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1464).

I may do this as well, but it's not in there yet.
