    I knew they were changing the EAC in the 2.6 update so I took off my custom icons. I still see people are using them after the update, so I know EAC has not detected those.

    From the probability it's very unlikely that EAC will ever care about those files in the first place. From what I know about EAC is that it cares about completely different files in different locations and those get checked (pak files as far as I know), EAC doesn't care about simple UI files at all.

    Furthermore idk anyone who got banned for that. The thing about EAC: they could start changing that and start checking those files without letting you know. BUT even than, it's more likely that the game will just not start and forces you to verify the files via steam.

    I'm pretty sure the devs can control to Whitelist certain folders and give us players a clear "yes, you can change the files in the UI folder" but for an unknown reason they don't, nor did they gave us alternatives like a steam workshop to do it completely save.

    From what I've heard, EAC really only detects things in the pak files. If you change UI icons you "should" be okay. Don't take my word for it. I've been using custom icons on and off for awhile and haven't been banned for it.

    I doubt EAC would ever start banning them without notifying BHVR. Simply because if they took a reading on how many players they would instantly ban, it could upset their client.

    I doubt BHVR would like to wake up to a surprise ban wave of a 1000+ accounts simply because EAC decided to ban for those changes.

    Btw, you have some good sources to find different icon packs (let it me perks, addons or character etc)?

    Cuz so far I only found the clown pack for addons quite nice, everything else was to "cute" or to "childish" if you know what I mean?

    I know that you can get banned for it now, which sucks, I had different icons for a while before one of the recent updates, they were changed back and I just left them alone.
