System Shock 2 begins with you being unfrozen from a long cryogenic sleep aboard the Rickenbacker, a security spaceship assigned to tail the Von Braun on her maiden voyage. Apparently, the Von Braun has been infested by an unknown alien race and has converted the crew into relatively intelligent zombies. You must gather bits of audio clips along the way to figure out what happened to your crew and, more importantly, how you can rid the ship of the aliens. Rely on your skills training from either the Navy, Marines, or OSA to guide you on this difficult path. This 3D title offers unbelievable graphics, as the Thief engine is utilized to provide mouth-watering environments and character skins. The astounding graphics, varied RPG elements, and fluid action make this title worthwhile.

This patch is included in the SS2Tool_v5.1.exe as far as I understand.

How to install mods:
Every mod has its own thread in the System Shock 2 Mods subforum. Downloads are always attached to the first post. Download the mod you want and unpack its contents (with 7-zip) into the DataPermMods folder in your game. If you already have mods in there, you can also use the DataTempMods folder in the same way. Mod files in DataTempMods will override those in DataPermMods, which is useful for testing new mods. See the Newbie Modding Guide for starters.

Which mods are compatible
Mods that contain a gamesys file are incompatible with another, because this single file controls most aspects of gameplay.

Hello I extracted the contents of the "new_dark.zip" and "contrib.zip" archives into my SS2 directory as instructed but how do I know if the patch is working because the game seems no different and i do not have any of these new options in my menu. Can someone please explain if im missing something or need to do anything else. Thanks
