    Crytek upsetting a fanbase you would think after waiting so long for remastered versions of the game they would not be like this and welcome people sharing shots of gameplay and so on to garner more interest

    It seems counter productive to go after such a meaningless mod in terms of "breaking terms and conditions". It let's people take a photo, if your game doesn't have that, then all you're doing is ticking off a large number of people for no reason.

    A bit more detail has come to light, it seems the mod is/was only available from his Patreon page and that's something you have to pay for to get access too - it's the paywall that caught Crytek's attention. If it wasn't for that, they may not have said a word about it.

    This is why it was targeted, because he's making money of someone else's (Crytek's) property. It might only let players take photos of their gameplay but he's making money from them doing so; he's using Crytek's software to line his pockets. An awful lot of companies would take a pretty dim view of that.

    Well, that's a fair comment if he had paywalled it many a site offering free mods that allow for donations to the creators that mean they are not paywalled so this is probably the reason as you say then he been flagged be interesting if it was offered via another way if the response would have been the same.
