Can using mods in terraria get you steam banned?

AS the title says? I've heard of mods being developed for it, but I dont want my steam account being banned in case it detects a modified exe or something. Unless it doesnt affect the exe? I'm not sure so i thought i'd ask.

Thanks in advance

Steam doesn't detect any modified exes. What you might think of is VAC, but Terraria doesn't use VAC? I don't think Terraria uses any anticheats at all.

VAC isn't used on Terraria so I doubt you'll be banned for it. There is also this where the modding scene is getting bigger on Terraria as well. I doubt it would be big if it got people banned.

Just check the modding section on the Terraria homepage.

You mean this URL? http://terraria.wikia.com/wiki/Mods#...rticleComments

Well there is a box that says this too:

Quote:
Warning: Using certain mods may be considered illegal and you may be charged or get your Steam account banned. If you want to be sure before use, you can read the Steam EULA to make sure the mod won't get you banned.
Well I think you should ask TerriaWiki to remove this disclaimer - just to prevent them from giving the warning when it's not been verified.

I don't think people care if you use mods. Take Minecraft for example: Mojang has heard of mods ever since Minecraft was 1st made. Mojand doesn't care, why should Steam?

If Steam has a problem with Terraria Modding, they should speak up on it. I haven't heard them speak up on it, so I assume they don't mind as long as noone releases any Mod designed to do anything malicious.
