is there any more stats that the sporepedia spits out that you could show?

Yeah, all of those. :)

Incidentally, does anyone have a good guess at what the "baseGear" stat might be?

Speed, I suppose - because there is no other stat for that.

[EDIT: No, can't be, sorry. The baseGear value of at leat one of my creatures doesn't match with it's speed.]

Great extension, thank you very much. And I recommend trying Firefox to everyone who would like to see this in action. ;)

Ok, I've just uploaded version 0.2 (see first post).

I managed to fix the issue with the plugin failing if you were on a different tab when Sporepedia loaded, and also made it so the information is properly displayed and updated no regardless of how you reach a creature panel (as far as I know anyway). I've removed diet for now and added in a couple of other fields - including creation date/time, which should help when working out who actually created stolen creatures.

Edit: Gah, still doesn't work properly for some urls, will look into it later.

Works like a charm, here.

Though when I uprated one of my creatures its rating actually got down by a fraction. And why the rating isn't a whole number? Like 5 instead of 4.99999?

Fun Facts:
- My tallest creature is the Gigargantua (4.398712)
- My best rated creature is the Sennezantine (93.88888)

Maybe I'll get Firefox when my summer online classes are done in a week so I don't mess up the WebCT (online class server thing).

Awesome. Plainly, simply, and completely awesome.
I say NO! to all limits.
Unfortunately, I don't think we're far enough into the Civ stage to have deveoped into the 'Infinite-ghz processing' research tree yet...

Yaaaay, now all my creatures have really precise birthdays!  ;D This'd be great if I wanted to, um....well, look up their astrology birthchart or something.

Either way, a great modification of an already great tool!
If you peruse my things, you get POINTS!

Only trouble is, they're Whose Line Is It Anyway points, which are infamously not worth anything.

You will have to wait for the expansion pack "Spore - Astrology" for that.

Great Firefox addon. Now it needs to be submitted to the official Firefox site so updates are available without having to check this thread first. Firefox has an Addons auto update tool.

I've submitted it, although I don't know if it will be accepted or not. It is my first ever plugin and I taught myself javascript along the way so we'll see. Alternatively the plugin could be hosted somewhere else, perhaps on a fansite, and directed to autoupdate from there.

Anyway, I've just upped version 0.3.  I fixed up another way in which creatures could be reached without the stats being added, and that should hopefully be the last - I carefully checked through Sporepedia's code to make sure. I've also cleaned up the display of the statistics, rounding numbers to 2 decimal places and shortening the creation date.

I added in the Bite and Sing statistics, but I'm finding the other statistics wildly inconsistent with the statistics of the creatures in the creature creator - unusably so. For instance, a Health + 10 creature is reported as Health + 5, while a Health + 1 creature is reported as Health + 3. Huh.

So I guess this is pretty much it until Sporepedia is fixed or I work out what is going on. I might poke around and see if there is anything else that I can do - perhaps add a confirmation dialog to the Report creature link. Any other suggestions?

My school uses WebCT and I've been using it with firefox for years without problems.

Unfortunately the removal of the Sporepedia webservices seems to prevent the extension from working. I don't see the stats anymore... :(

EDIT: My mistake, resolved.  :-[
