bannable? Is this even allowed??

I'm a pretty new player, so I look to reddit and other sites for advice, I came across a thread where people were warning each other about nude mods and the game possibly detecting them.
Are these things even allowed in the game and why do people even mod mmorpgs? Isn't games like skyrim and such for things like that? Do the GMs here even ban people for doing things like this?

Nude mods are not allowed, no editing of the game is. I guess people still do it, and don't get caught in some cases.

No it's against the TOS.

Also LOL/r/BDO didn't Kakao stop supporting them last year or something because of the whole "P2W" fiasco they pulled?

The tos says that changes to the game files that affect the gameplay will result in ban.

Changing the charcter model doesn't affect the gameplay, as it's visisble only for you. Can't be detected either, since it's not a hack or injector or anything. According to the forum platform for this mod, no one was banned for it ever.

 

Still, use on your own risk :D

Those "mods" are normally scams, so don't fall for that crap.

That's quite a unique way of asking "Can I use nude mod guys?"

You are confusing "people" with "a few feminist fanatics".

then what comes next? modding the ghillie suits into red glowing stuff with a big arrow over the head? is not much difference "only visible for you".

Yea. You can already do that. 

Does it affect you in anyway if another player does it?

How is it cheating? You gain bothing by doing it.

gerund or present participle: cheating
  1. 1.
    act dishonestly or unfairly in order to gain an advantage.
    "she always cheats at cards"
  2. 2.
    avoid (something undesirable) by luck or skill.
    "she cheated death in a spectacular crash"
    synonyms:

Modifying textures for better visibilty is an advantage that leads to bans in lots of multiplayer games. 

You could as well just hack your files to get other costumes, it's the same. Surely an advantage over the people who need to pay for the altered visuals.

But generally, breaking the rules is cheating for me and unfair play. If the rules make sense or not that's another topic, but if you break them you're a cheater, simple as that. How do you personally handle guys that break the rules in RL games? You try to defend them like here?

Well only one way to find out, because if people can't mod outfits from the pearl shop, then this shouldn't be allowed.

Some clarification on this?

I know Eternal2nd was joking, but from what I understand the tools used to make your character nude can be used to remove anything, selectively. So, yes, you can remove heels and nothing else, if you like. Not that anyone does.

Anyway, the reddit post had nothing to do with the game "detecting your mod", it's just that if you try to patch with an edited file it will attempt to validate your entire installation, taking forever and potentially bugging files so you have to re-install.

They only show up for yourself and they're not easily detectable without invasive spyware that BDO does not want to get caught installing on peoples' computers without explicit assent, so there's next to no risk unless you advertise your use of them. They could, of course, make the patcher scan the specific files that people are altering and flag them if their filesize is out of the ordinary, but that would result in lots of false positives (how do you tell whether someone edited the file or it was randomly corrupted when being downloaded?) so they won't do it.

 

But generally, breaking the rules is cheating for me and unfair play. If the rules make sense or not that's another topic, but if you break them you're a cheater, simple as that. How do you personally handle guys that break the rules in RL games? You try to defend them like here?

Definition of prig? If a rule is stupid then yeah, I'll defend someone breaking it and if it's a game then we'll continue on without the stupid rule most likely. What kind of question is that? Do you even realize how few people play RL games 100%-accurately to the rules, other than professionally? "Nah I'll just blindly follow everything dictated to me by others, they're rules! Doesn't matter if they make sense or are harmful."

That said, this particular rule obviously makes sense. You can't place a big red arrow over people wearing a particular outfit (and the fact you think that is adorable, lol), but you can make them more visible.

I don't think any modification is allowed to this game at all.
