Modding is a big part of the Fallout community, but now it seems that Bethesda is banning players using third-party mods in an effort to make Fallout 76 more entertaining.
Former Fallout games like New Vegas and Fallout 4 feature mods that can basically affect every aspect of the gameplay and may end up turning the games into something totally unseen.
Now, it seems that Bethesda is not as concerned with players using third-party mods just to improve the experience of Fallout 76, and has begun distributing bans on players using them.
According to a new video from the YouTuber JuiceHead, several redditors received the following emails from Bethesda after using mods to only enhance the graphics:
"This Account has violated the Code of Conduct and Terms of Service by cheating. This account was discovered to run a third-party program, which gives an unfair advantage to the game, while logged on Fallout 76. "The good news is that Bethesda lets players appeal the ban by writing an essay on why using third-party apps to cheat is a bad thing.
There were some users who were banned for "duping" who use mods to get an advantage, but some users just used a shader, t think it would qualify for the ban.
Considering Bethesda's former open attitude to the modding community, these bans could signal a dramatic change to what is moving forward.
