I realized this week that modders are a nasty and aggressive group of people. Yea, I am a bit slow.
Game developers will have all their artistical sensibilities completely raped by this group of people.
If they carefully controlled the parameters, so their physical engine behave in a immersion-friendly way. They will create a weapon that shot trains.
If some scene is balanced so it make sense for the character in a cutscene to behave in a particular way, they will replace the character by a sea whale, that will explode into gibs and into space.
Because modders are jerks.
Probably all gamers are jerks.
Even console gamers are jerks that will happily laugh after a video of a monkey stealing a car in a modded game.
The way I see this, theres only two options:
a - Don't sell your game to these people. So they don't mod it.
b - Sell the game to these people, they will mod it. Call your ISP so they cut your access to the internet, and the nasty, indignatious things they do to game engines and resources.
As a modder, or exmodder myself... I have to say.. "I am sorry", we have unspeakable things in the past and must probably we will do in the future. Nothing will stop us.
This group of people will do any thing to a game/game engine for fun. They will stop for nothing just to have a laugh and some fun.
