An update that'll add support for Shifter 1.9 and the HDTP, add an option to enable Shifter's skill system and fix several other issues is coming... Eventually.

Posted by Clorf on Dec 6th, 2013

Hi everyone, thanks for all the interest in my little mod.

I haven't been able to work on Biomod for a while because I've been busy with other things, but since so many people want it, I think I can make the time to work on a new version that'll bring the mod up to date with Shifter, add the option to turn on Shifter's skill system and fix a bunch of other issues.
 
However, I'd prefer to wait for a "final" release of Shifter 1.9 before I do it.  I used a beta version of Shifter as a base last time, and that turned out to be a mistake, resulting in a pretty serious bug (the Lebedev nonlethal issue) that went unnoticed for a long time.  Letting that happen was my fault, of course, but I'd like to avoid problems like that in the future.

So there you have it.  I will eventually update the mod, but I'm going to try to to do it all at once, and do it right, as I simply can't afford to continually support it on an ongoing basis the way I did before.  Please be patient in the meantime. :)

Would definitely give this mod another go, especially with the option to enable shifters skill system.

YES! When it's done, it will be the perfect time to run around with a silenced pistol getting stealth head-shot bonuses.

All cool man cant wait gona replay when its out. There is a bug I want to point out so that it wont be missed. I came across this bug but and so did doog1114 Ill just post his comment talking about it since its exactly the same as what I experienced. I was also wondering if it would be possible to add iron sights to guns like in unreal revolution? Thx a lot for the best Deus ex mod!

Another potential problem I noticed: I am unable to jump over the shortest ledges unless I have obtained at least TRAINED in athletics. A couple of times I ended up becoming completely stuck because of this; and I made sure my legs were fully healed. I really can't see a way to overcome this issue, unless I obtain the Speed Enhancement augmentation. The problem is I first encountered this on the rooftops of the warehouse district in Hell's Kitchen, which is before I can get said augmentation.

Clorf,

Thanks for creating for the best gameplay mod for Deus Ex 1, bar none! I understand your position about waiting for Shifter to stabilize before merging in its latest delta. However, I was being impatient to replay Deus Ex with your mod, HDTP Release 2 meshes, and with high-resolution UI :-) I have gone ahead and merged the latest versions (SVN HEAD) of all of the above, and also updated all user interface icons and textures (inventory & belt icons re-rendered from scratch in 24-bit high-res, in particular), added more configurability and a bunch of bugfixes across the board, called it unifiedDeusEx, and posted it at Moddb.com . I have used DeusEx.u by The9thHeretic from below post as a starting point.

I have tested it via a full playthrough of Deus Ex campaign including Revision Demo 1.3.1 + HDTP Release 2 + New Vision, without any problems. Shifter codebase is quite mature, anyway.

Sorry abt hijacking the comments below for shameless plugging my mod :-), which is pretty much a merge of existing ones, anyway... Well, combining multiple mutually-exclusive DeusEx.u mods might be useful in itself.

I have also restored jumping height to default level for Athletics at UNTRAINED; no more getting stuck on the warehouse roof.
