Official statement to modding?

Hi there!
Since I had a small break in playing Battlefront since christmass, I totally missed the informations about modding.
I just saw that there are more and more mods available to use in arcade.

My question is, what is the current statement from EA/DICE to the mods?

Is it safe to use them? Or are they causing any technical issues withing the game?

As far as I know, they are only available in offline arcade game. (actually I'm happy about that, because I don't want to see that already present pink Vader roaming arount)

I saw that modders already recreated almost every multiplayer game mode and map for offline play in arcade? That was fast. Why wasn't this a thing already in the 1st place as a feature in the game?


So is anyone using here any mods? What are the experiences?

    Modding is not allowed as per ToS. Will anyone know if you are using custom skins or mods offlines... nope*.

    With that said. We know how little they do with cheaters...

    Thanks guys. That means the mods I'm interested in - all game modes and maps from multiplayer also playable offline - is not just a visual mod, so it can cause issues :( :D

    (but dunno why DICE isn't adding this function to the base game....as it seem, even modders can manage to make them in such a short time)

    No one will know if you don't say anything. Much like your car dealer won't know you have modded the engine after buying it unless they inspect it. In this case no one will be inspecting your offline stuff ;)

    They don't care about Mods done Offline and they couldn't even track that

    As long as a Mod doesn't change a MP Stat such as Damage or Fire-Rate and isn't used in MP you can do whatever you want in Arcade

    More interestingly, someone made a mod for GA offline? How did they make vehicle and starfighter AI?
