Are you not allowed to use Graphics Mods for Planetside 2?

I've seen this said a few times before that they don't want people cheating at all, but could they even tell if you were running graphic mods? I've seen some very impressive graphic mods out there that make the game look extremely good, I'd probably actually play the game more if it actually looked as good as the videos I've seen of the modded versions

You are dealing with a console manufacturer who is used to being in total control and doesn't like it when you think for yourself.

That should tell you all you need to know.

Depends on the mod. Like Battlefield doesn't mind FXAA injectors like sweetfx but screw with the game files themselves and you'll get banned rather quickly.

That's the point; they can't. You definitely don't want people using illegal customization in a multiplayer game. Like source's material hacks. They're undetectable because they're client sided.

Now that's not entirely true. A checksum on the game files would reveal the hack real fast.

You won't be able to differentiate a hack and a legit mod then. As long as it's different compared to Vanilla; it'll be deemed illegal.

Which is why I mentioned tools like sweetfx that don't screw with the game files.

Sweetfx still needs to inject and hook though. If a game's anticheat whitelist it; sure you can use it fine. I know for a fact VAC whitelists SweetFX but not every anticheat does.

Is this a recent change, or why would people spend the time developing so many graphic mods for a game that doesn't allow them?

You'd play a terrible game if it looks pretty?
