GMDX has also gained a new team member! He's a talented artist that goes by the alias '"Barbeerian", and intends to aid GMDX fulfill its potential by adding a variety of new art: 2D textures, skins, models and animations.
Here's a shot of the very first asset contributed in its early creation stage, a helmet model:

GMDX addresses the many flaws of Deus Ex, polishes it to a very high standard, and adds new layers of depth that one would have hoped to see in a sequel.

Are there SDK's available for this engine? Specifically the Deus Ex version?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes

Nope. If there was an SDK for DX:HR, it could be modded by the community and made into a good game - but you can thank Square Enix and Eidos for that.
