battlefield 3 just got more interesting on pc. the community has created a night fighting mod. thats right they turned the lights off. currently it only has 1 map called grand bazaar which is a koth type game mode. the mod creators explained that it was no esy task doing this and that DICE went to great lengths to make an amazing engine but sacraficed user accessibility and as a result it is difficult to mod in small teams and small time investments

Shame EA doesn't give a **** about the modding community. DICE's explanation is so bad. Good to see that people are trying though. Didn't expect there'd ever be any kind of mod.

Bazaar is an awesome map. Conquest could be better on it but team deathmatch or squad deathmatch is awesome.

@TC this looks dumb. Sure it's a cool experiment but totally pointless, you can't see anything and the sun still shines too and blinds you if you look at it but the whole area is still dark. :?

Only thing bad about is B. It's like Operation Metro 2 in there. But I just stay away from that meatgrinding spamfest and run around the outsides.

Well it's more about licensed software when it comes to modding the Frostbite Engine than anything. A lot of the complexities stem from the fact that there is a lot of 3rd party code there and making it open for modding could cost them a lot of money in licensing fees.

Their excuse is still pretty crappy, but expect even less games in the future to have mods because of these things.

Battlefield 3 sucks so getting the best version of a turd doesn't make it any less of a turd.

Agreed. The only real reason why they don't allow mod support is because they want to sell you their DLC if you want any new maps or content.

Too bad the PC version isn't that good either.

LOL that looked terrible, the particle effects still looked like they were reflecting light so that pretty much ruins the whole mod and is rendered pointless. :D

lol mods not only will pc users not play games till they can be pirated *which is day one* they wont play em till a mod is released I feel sorry for pc developers that dont release their games on drm heaven steam. But all of that beside the pc version was the best version at launch this was known very well mod support doesn't increase this infact mod support is the failing of the games online I love watching people have a partial texture mod that lets them see users through objects.

From what I've seen, Steam Workshop is motivating developers to put in modding support

Mod looks a bit rough. I'd wait for night time maps made by the actual developers

#27 Posted by HaloinventedFPS (4736 posts) -

Dice.. or EA went to great lenghts to make it unmoddable, because no one will buy the DLC if people can make that content for free, im surprised these guys havent been banned.

I don't think it's worth banning them because EA probably doesn't see a little Night time mod and KoTH (seems like a bad fit for Battlefield) as a threat to their DLC

It may be the best version but I can't know. Because origin has been giving me download errors all day
