What many of you are failing to realize is dice is NOT banning them for making the game look better. I am sure if allowed.. hackers could make many online games look better. The reason they can't or are not allowed is because part of the cheat protection schemes used is the scanning and verifying that the games source files are NOT MODIFIED. Some games also look for outside programs modifying the games memory in some way.
So DICE isn't actually saying they will ban you if you use this mod, they are saying their auto ban cheat protection will detect this mod as a hack and ban you for it.
