    Just to make sure.

    Hi,

    I've heard rumors about Texture mods actually being bannable, but as far as I know texture mods are totally legit right?

    And with that, I dont mean textures that shine through walls or so, I mean retextures of for example a sniper, to make it completely purple or so.


    I know I can use the search button, but I want some user experience answers, I don't want to get VAC banned on a account with like 26 games.

    VAC actually bans multiple games

    And why is there a rumor going around saying that you can get banned then?

    I'll just quote the VAC rules,
    "Cheating in one of the following Source games will result in a VAC ban for all games in the list:
    Counter-Strike: Source
    Half-Life 2: Deathmatch
    Day of Defeat: Source
    Team Fortress 2

    Cheating in one of the following Gold Source games will result in a VAC ban for all games in the list:
    Counter-Strike
    Condition Zero
    Ricochet
    Day of Defeat
    Team Fortress Classic
    Half-Life: Deathmatch
    Deathmatch Classic
    ____________________________
    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
    VAC is enabled on all multiplayer servers, public and private. Any modifications to the game other than editing config files can result in a VAC ban. Examples of such modifications include but are not limited to console enablers, VAC disablers, and server hosting mods.
    A VAC ban in Modern Warfare 2 only affects Modern Warfare 2."

    The reason you are banned in more than one game is because they are based on the same engine, Source.
    All CoD games only affect the one game.

    That being said, if you change the player or weapon models in MW3, there's a very low risk of getting banned, if any risk at all. One of the things that might get you banned, and that is also very rare, is if you change the textures of the maps in a way that gives you an advantage. E.g. removing foliage or doing whatever that might mean you could possibly see someone you shouldn't be able to see.

    Bottom line being, and to answer your question, there's a risk with every modification, but the risk of getting banned for modding a weapon is pretty much zero.

    Unless u take a screenshot yourself, send it to Valve, along with this message : BAN ME PLEASE , they wont ban you, and even then, they prolly wont ban you ... It isnt PB, it doesnt take screenshots of itself ...

    Blah
    VAC have stated themselves that texture modding isn't bannable since it most likely will not give you an advantage over other players.


    The lines in my Steam are i's
