Modding Dead Island FOV, FPS, Blur, and More

this thread on the Steam Users' Forums puts out the call to arms to the modding community to jump in and create fixes and workarounds for some of the perceived shortcomings of Dead Island, Techland's just-released zombie game. This includes links to other threads with info on how to change FOV, change mouse sensitivity, improve framerates, and more. There's also a warning about how messing with games on Steam can earn one a VAC ban, noting that this may not be a danger if one follows the offered guidelines, but also noting that this does not mean these methods are "100% safe from vac ban," they sound "promising and less risky." That said, they also point out that: "if you are vac banned, it's for life, it cannot be undone, it can be for all your vac secured games, steam support cannot help you, it's like the worse [sic] thing that could ever happen to you." Thanks Acleacius.

Level 46 after many many straight hours.

The game has terrible New Game + support. After completing the campaign, you are dumped at the beginning again with xp/equipment, which would be fine, except the game doesn't differentiate between New Game + players and everybody else. If I join a coop game it'll saddle me with somebody thirty levels beneath me. Nowhere does it tell me the level of other players. This wouldn't be TOO great a problem except that when I kill an enemy or loot a box, the loot is scaled to MY LEVEL, not the other player(s). So the level 20 enemy I kill with my level 46 character drops a level 46 weapon... which in no way helps the level 20 player whose game I ended up in.
Wow now that is awesome.

As for those talking about the VAC ban issues welcome to the future of gaming. If you want more examples: http://www.wired.com/gamelife/2010/10/starcraft-ban/
