PlanetSide 2: zero tolerance for mods

Daybreak Game Company lays off 70 employees

If you’re thinking of doing some tinkering in PlanetSide 2, you should think again. SOE said that no mods are allowed to the client, as well as modifications to data from the game. Even if you’re just trying to develop a harmless app, that’s still a no-go, since this could lead to excuses from hackers who try to take advantage.

Here’s the official blurb from SOE:

“We cannot make exceptions to this. We do understand there are relatively harmless apps that fall in this category, but if we allowed those they would simply be used as a shield excuse by players trying to cheat. This same rule applies to data that PlanetSide 2 uses for gameplay. Do not modify any of these files or attempt to modify them in memory.

There are some applications that modify the Windows or DirectX environment without changing the client. These may also result in suspensions unless we specifically exempt them and declare them OK to use.

The most simple guidance here is do not use third party programs which change the PlanetSide 2 gameplay in any way unless it has been specifically cleared by SOE.”
