After yesterday's ban wave for the spreadfix inside NoShadows.ASI - Management PMs have been blowing up to ask about duration, updates, leniency and what not....so we'll be adressing everything in this topic.
A player has released GTA that had nospread inside a normal asi mod without knowing which was downloaded by many players here who have ended up being banned for it, I understand how it could've been an oversight due to this specific spreadfix is not easily noticeable while playing - At the end of the day, it is still an illegal modification and falls under "your pc, your responsibility" you should be responsible of what you download and add to your game, I know it is asking too much actually having to de-compile every .asi mod and check if it has cheats injected in it, specially if you are not great at computers, but it is your responsibility to be careful and make sure you have a clean game while playing in our server.
This will be a one time exception and a warning at the same time, do not download a random GTA without double-checking it properly, any usage of illegal modifications will be treated same as any other, we will NOT make any further exceptions.
Below is the list of how the current ban-wave of NoShadows(spreadfix) will be treated, no other bans.
Publisher of the GTA will be getting full 1 year ip-ban.
Players who have re-named the file to be sneaky will be getting full 1 year ip-ban.
Players with cheating history will be getting 4 months ip-ban.
