Be sure to make a backup save and update it regularly !
Oh god. I want to do it but hate it at the same time
Sweet. Cheers David!

Just pointing out that this method of unlocking achievements for this game is still being discussed, and if you use this method right now (before a verdict is decided by
the TA Investigations Team) you are risking having your account being on reduced tracking (likely game removal) if this is deemed to be cheating by the TA IT.
How is this method different from Sims 4 (which was promoted in an article by TA)?
Going to be a lot of people on game removal then including a lot of the Content creators here in TA Billz, Itzshowtime, Sashamorning ect ect
Fallout 3 GFWL cough cough
Starting to hear you don't need to buy the DLC anyone got more details on this?
This is more serious than Fallout or Sims. One of the reasons Fallout is allowed is because it is impossible to enforce. It was also based on in-game console commands
which are a majority consensus of "not cheating" on TA. Sims is allowed for the similar reason of it not being enforceable and also because the user is actually still
To be fair, unlocking these achievements still took me longer than the average Ratalaika game...
meeting the requirements to some degree.
Please share if you find out more David!
Will definitely do really don't want to pay £60 for DLC
This, on the other hand, is a mod that was almost certainly created with 3rd-party tools (breaking MS ToS) that literally deciphers your profile to see which achievements
are locked, and then immediately unlocks all locked achievements. If that isn't hacking achievements, then I don't know what is.
I implore people not to use these mods to unlock the achievements in this game. We really shouldn't encourage this type of malicious behavior in our community.
Tempted to start this earlier, but will rather wait on a verdict.
If this is frowned upon with TA/Investigations then why was the walkthrough approved and posted on TA using this method?
Yeah and multiple posts in the forums still left up with admins posting in them?
Maka91 is even posting a video guide now on Youtube
Yes I am a little scared like COD WOW modded lobby
Too many people have done it now and since they are not bothered about the xbox one save glitch thing I'm pretty sure nothing will happen.
It also appears TA mods have done this glitch also?
‘Almost certainly done created with 3rd party tools’ not sure where you base this on. Mod is created just with code. Also it is approved by Paradox Interactive
Also this is all Ingame mods so not sure how it differs from fallout or sims in that regard
Ittz I appreciate all your work you do for this community but I cannot fundamentally agree with this method of unlocking achievements. If TA wants to approve it, fine.
But I won't be using it.
Thats fine. All personal choices. Was curious about where you got the 3rd party thing from thats why I asked
My reasoning was that if something like this was possible with all in-game mechanics that it would have been already found. You say the mod is created with code. Isn't
the program you used to write that code a 3rd party tool?
how is this any different to WANDERSONG which TA promoted, the guy trying to scare people is clearly a turdpolisher
Code was all written in a basic notepad like program, as that is the files the game approves. Doesnt even matter anyway. Dwaggienite made dlc levels for a game, dev also
Approved it. Thats would then also be classed as 3rd party. Main thing is imo that it is all dev supported and no modifiction of the actual game files
The dev supporting it is the main reason why its allowed it's there game and If they want to allow this mod it's there choice
Do you have a message from the developer saying that they're okay with this mod? If I messaged them on Twitter asking them about it, they would say it's approved?
What I'm saying is they might be okay with mods in general for their game, but if they found out that a mod was being used in this way for their game, they might think
Stealth if you are right and this mod has actually been looked at and approved by Paradox then you're right, it's their game and if they want to approve that mod then
that's their choice.
Also, Ittz, when you say "no modification of the actual game files" ... Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't that literally what a "mod" does? It's literally in the name.
Also, "basic notepad-like program" sounds like 3rd party to me, which absolutely matters because it goes against MS ToS.
So this potentially is a bannable offense (on TA) but second profile glitching is perfectly fine? What a joke.
And for the excuse 'for the Sims you are still meeting requirements... someway' haha yes sure, what an excuse.
'with second profile glitching, we don't know intent, it can happen by accident' if you're grasping at straws, then downloading mods approved by Paradox, can happen >>
Nope not bannable. Mods can be submitted for publish, they are automatically tested and either rejected or approved in less than a minute. The fact that the mod is up for
>> by accident too, right? All these rules are a joke. If anything, SPG is the guilty one here and not Survival Mars method.
Download already says enough. Yes a mod is indeed alters the game but you know what Im talking about. No halo 2 pc stuff
Notepad like program: works with notepad. Or other basic programs that allow code writing such as Ms visual studio
Also paradox sold over 400 season passes in the past day so I highly doubt they will fix this if it even bothers them to begin with
If a developer allows a mod library to be used, and then allows mods that pop achievements, it's no different than a dev allowing console commands.
The main point is whether the dev allows it, or if the player is circumventing the code. The dev purposely added this functionality.
KinectKid, the game code is not being changed. The mod library allows for supplements to the code. This is different from having into game files and changing them.
It's been established policy for some time that if a dev allows certain functionality, it's kosher.
What isn't alright is hacking the code into a way that the devs didn't intend. Glitching isn't the same either. No changes to the game code.
Glitches involve code that might not have been intended to be used that way, but the code still allows it to happen without altering the basic code.
240 hours put into these games worth every second
Please teach me your ways Senpai Stealth <3
Billz showed me everything thanks for that YouTube video
Still had to buy DLC
Did you have to buy it for both versions or did they carry over?

I didn't I was joking but yeah you have to buy for both
Erves me right for being lazy and not looking at your completions lol. Think I will pass then, they aren't exactly cheap
you dont have to buy dlc i just got the 1000g on both games using billz method
ppl want real completions, though
Seriously? This rating seems kinda unfair considering you didn't even play the game
Are people really buying a $30 DLC season pass just for 5 seconds of use?
$30 for 500 Gamerscore sounds like a good deal.
The game is actually really good. I got a lot of the console achievements when it went on Game Pass.
Had to buy the DLC 0.5
That was a tough 120 I can't believe I did this really challenging game!
Did they put the mod back up after their little argument?
