Let's face the facts. It is impossible to stop all exploits and modders.
The first steps will be preventing cheating tools are being used. Cheating tools makes everyone a modder. Preventing the cheating tools will lead to players to request from a small team of modders to modify the game. This might actually overwhelm the modders and players would turn to the legit version of the game for the latest update.
Not sure if this would actually work and that is also the reason why I am looking at Cheat Engine. It has been constantly updated over the years and I believe that the older features of Cheat Engine can be rendered useless if we actually spent enough time understanding how it works and preventing it.
But I guess most developers would be thinking cheaters gonna cheat, so no point in implementation. But I would think that it is not about those that are cheating but about being fair to the legit players.
Yup. Long term goal. But not sure when I am able to accomplish it as it is constantly upgrading.
