Battlefield 3 is a lovely looking game, there’s no denying that. But I’ve always thought that the art style was missing something. After reading about this mod that was released yesterday, I realized what that something was: color! The mod released by Realmware alters the color schemes and makes everything look extremely vibrant and colorful. However installing this lovely mod will put your Battlefield 3 account at risk.
BF3 Gameplay Designer Gustav Halling warned via a twitter post (that has since been deleted):
“[It’s] too colorful. Also, I wouldn’t use those hacks if you don’t want a permanent ban on your account. FYI warning.”
Watching the video, the mod clearly adds so much depth and life to an otherwise soulless (but pretty!) game. I understand color changing mods could unbalance gameplay, like if the mod made certain walls invisible or otherwise gave players an advantage… but simply recoloring the textures to make it look better? That’s ridiculous.
