DICE Warns of Bans for BF3 Color Mod

PC Gamer notes that DICE's Gustav Halling tweets his disapproval of a modification for Battlefield 3 that adds a little more color to the arguably drab environments in DICE's military shooter sequel. In addition to expressing the opinion that it is "to [sic] colorful," the Battlefield 3 gameplay designer also warns that this could get players permanently banned, adding "The hack is not only a 'brightness modifier', its a proper cheat." Thanks Joao.

Weird. Am I the only person who plays BF3 that doesn't mind the current "art direction", at least compared to the color mod?

I understand wanting the option to choose between "blue tint" and "color", that would be nice for people to be able to decide. But watching that comparison video, to me the mod actually makes the game look, I don't know, less interesting visually. When you take the tint away, the game looks more cartoony (because it's so colorful compared to the default), less unique, and more like every other Joe Shooting Game.

The base game has a really washed out, drab feeling to it. I think it's just the contrast between the two that is throwing you off, I find it pretty attractive.
