VoiceAttack is not nofficial and supported tool by FD, Neither, indeed, are any of the external tools. So that lays waste to that argument. I know I use VoiceAttack to automate a lot of stuff. I'm actually almost deaf, so you can imagine, VA is pretty useless to me for anything but it's automation abilities.If this is not an official and supported tool by FDev available to all then one could argue that it is not benign as it will offer an unfair advantage to those who possess it vs those who don't. The ability to progress in game (literally hours sometimes) without any player input.
Another point to make is that if we cross that line in that case, what's the next thing we automate and are ok with? In the end do we just want bots playing the game and us just looking at stuff now and then and saying.. "look how good my bot is..."
Could be a slippery slope.
