i know that ea are total assholes when it comes to the community. say we wanted to make it so that we could fire our pistol when sitting on a tank or in a car. i know its not possible right now, but if u have axcess to something like an sdk the core engine would it be possible?

i just want to know why ea wont give us an sdk or other modding help. u can complain all u want and when u email them all they say is they have no plan to release something.

but what is their real reason?

LoboI am not programer so I can't explain you this in depth but Montoya, one of our mates has explained this already (and he is programer):

The engine structure of Bf42 doesn't allow to create a SDK Half Life type and change with it the core of the game, DICE doesn't release a SDK because they hate moders or something like that, they don't release it because it's impossible to offer such tool. All the tools that are possible to use in Bf42 have been already developed by moders and asimilated by DICE and released in the MDT: model 3d exporting scripts, animation exporters, menu editors, RFA tools, sound script editors, etc.

We can't get more because nobody can develope more tools. The mitic SDK is impossible, so forget that dream.

So...

because if they release a sdk, they know people will stop being their recycled products.

in fact releaseing the source code wouldnt help us, like you quoted lobos speech allready, but the feature to add new code within dll files or others, which the engine calls, would be possible and open nearly as much possibilities as a source code ala HL, imo

its nice to see that you try to support us with that, but in fact i dont think it will change something

i mean, even IF dice would have time (and time is what they probably dont have atm...) than there are still alot of reasons why they shouldn't or can't do it

MeadowA break.

I'll give them a break. I'll give them a break. I'll break them off a piece of my kit-kat bar.

It is possible to mod fireing out of a car, action battlefield has it, although you can see any cross hairs, and it is kinda hard to see what your aiming at cause the gun goes all over the place.. :uhm:
