Bethesda's New Policy for Fallout 76 Cheaters
Modding has been a controversial topic since before the launch of Fallout 76. Both Elder Scrolls and the Fallout series have long had very active and expansive modding communities; quite possibly among the greatest for any gaming franchise. But Fallout 76 does not currently offer support. In fact, Bethesda has said it could take a year after launch to get the implementation. The problem is that while all former Elder Scrolls and Fallout games have been single-player experiences, Fallout 76 is an online multiplayer title. While before, if a player used mods, it would only affect their own game, now they can be used to gain significant and unfair benefits over other players.
Fallout 76 will eventually be against Support. But it must come together with the possibility of private servers. In such a case, it will be possible for a player to play without others spawn in the same world. (Although direct multiplayer via invitation may still be possible.) In this environment, potential dangers of modding in an online room will be avoided. Unfortunately, the long wait, coupled with many players dissatisfaction with the current state of Fallout 76, resulted in players risking a ban on using mother.
In recent weeks, Bethesda has squeezed on the use of mods and other cheats. However, the company offers banned players a pretty original way to overcome the ban on; "If you want to appeal this termination of the account," reads the email sent by Bethesda to affected players; "We would be willing to accept an essay on why the use of third-party cheat software is detrimental to an online game community," for the management team to review.

In some cases, players have claimed their accounts were unfairly banned. in fact, players who use software they didn't understand could trigger a ban, such as Cheat Engine and Reshade, for example, hopefully some really unfair bans will be disturbed by Bethesda over time, however, players must currently refrain from Fallout 76's online nature simply does not allow the widespread counter-use that the series is known for. At least, not yet.
Some players have expressed frustration at becoming banned for using mods that determine experienced problems with Fallout 76. For example, the recent addition of ultra-wide resolution has been widely criticized by fans. As a result, a mod is available on NexusMods that offers a solution. Unfortunately, any player who uses it still risks getting a ban. In some cases like this, a single mod may not cause any real damage, but Bethesda's law probably doesn't have the time to go through any mother's code to verify that it doesn't cause unintentional problems. In an online experience like this, even if someone is dissatisfied with it, the company's carpet policy is rational. Hopefully, Bethesda will prioritize bringing private server and mod support options faster than initially planned to face many fans' frustration.
