Hello people of Mercenaries, the admin team figured it was finally about time to take a stance on this subject, since there have been some complaints about people and gaining unfair advantages by using either Scarymod or in some other way altering the game for their own benefit.

This is in no way meant to destroy the game for people playing on bad setups, but to make it fair towards everyone who plays this mod. Therefor i'm now gonna list a few things that will no longer be allowed in Mercenaries, and depending on the severity, or having done so in the past, may result in either temporary or permanent suspension of your account/s or CD-Keys.

 

- Removal of vegetation.

 

In Mercenaries we have quite a few maps where vegetation is a major part of aesthetics and tactics, therefore being able to see through them gives a huge advantage to players who do this.

 

- Modifications of textures.

 

Textures that make stuff like throwables easier to dodge is not something that should be present in Mercenaries. Very bright textures that make the retrieval of throwables easier, and bright textures that make throwables stand out while in flight are also considered as gaining an unfair advantage. Purely changing the model to be more pleasing to the eye is of course still okay, as long as it doesnt give a person an unfair advantage.

 

- Extending the zoom out in 3rd person, Beyond the original standards set by Warband

 

This is not allowed either, since it provides an increased perspective of the battlefield

 

If you are caught breaking any of these guidelines, the first violation will result in a termination of your account for 3 days, and you will be requested to read this post as to make sure it doesnt happen again.

But if you continue and are caught a second time, it may result in a permanent termination.

 

Of course things like Aimbot / Aimassist are still prohibited and will result in an instant termination of your account as well.

 

Sincerely, The Admin Team

Cleared it up a little further, pressing the tilde key is ofcourse okay, was meant to target people who scroll out so much that they can actually see behind buildings, walls and other shenannigans using 3rd party software or tampering with game files

I do not personally use it but extending the  view zone should be totally allowed since its literally in the base game , not something you need to download so it should be fine to use them since anybody can do that so its not "unfair" by any means

anybody can install 3rd party software aswell. Also it doesn't matter if it is in a base game or not since you are modifying it. Players don't have it by default and they can't turn it on in options

anybody can install a 3rd party software but view zone thingy is much more easy to reach and the developers put it in the game intentionally so you can modify your game

You are speaking of two different things. The one pre-built in game allows you to zoom back a very limited amount, the mod allows you to zoom far enough to see the whole map and over buildings and so on. Guess which one we are not allowing.
