Well I am really baffled by this one. I received a message in my email saying that I am using an illegal mod and please uninstall and the mod and reinstall the game. Thing is, I only have used the Aslain mod pack and no other mods in the game. I use the small carosel mod, the tech tree mod, the HBAO mod, the contour line mod for side panels, and a tracer mod. Thing is according to Aslain, these mods have been tested in game and approved for use!!!
I did notice a few weeks back that when I load the game I got a popup window allowing me to use F10 on the keyboard to change the color of the screen to sharpen the image. I have never seen this before and was perplexed. I uninstalled Aslains mod pack and reinstalled it again and that F10 box went away.
in order to be transparent, I would like to know what the hell is going on? I have no reason to cheat in this game. I am an average player at best, but since I love this game I usually purchase a bunch of dubloons, all the premium ships in game and premium time in order to support the product and it's employees.
Aslain's mod packs allow players to spruce up the game as they see fit (within reason) and enjoy it even further.
