BioMod is an extension of Y|yukichigai's excellent Shifter mod for Deus Ex.  While I still think Shifter is a definite improvement over the original game,  I sometimes felt while playing it that it was too conservative for my tastes.  Eventually I decided to make my own mod which would contain some radical changes that might give some people pause, but would hopefully breathe new life into the game for everyone else.

As the name suggests, BioMod is primarily concerned with Deus Ex's augmentations, with the aim of making them more balanced, but also a lot easier to manage.  Most augs are now automated, using energy only when they're actually doing their jobs.  Some augs that were less useful or that would be a pain to manage have been made free or given extra abilities, while those that I thought were un-salvageable have been replaced with entirely new augs. 

In addition to the augmentation system, BioMod also makes some general gameplay changes, such as the addition of pickpocketing, an autosave feature, achievement-like challenges, and a Thief style ledge grabbing system.

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. :)

Is there going to be an update? Shifter is in a 1.9 beta now.

Yeah, is there a chance BioMod going to be compatible with current HDTP beta (or eventual final release)? Really looking forward to it.

Ok first thing you should do is bring back the Shifter skill point awarding system. It makes the game better.

Second, there is a weird thing that at some NPCs feet you could found soda cans and candy bars. That makes the game sometimes look weird.

And the last thing that you should make more challenges for shoot-a-lot players like me (head shot all enemies in the map, kill a bunch of enemies with a LAM).

Thanks for reading!

For some odd reason some of the new features (mainly the ledge grab button and achievement button) don't work for me,I installed it the same advanced way used for shifter (since typing the steps would make this post tl:dr I'll just say to look at the steps provided in shifter's advanced.txt file.)I even tried installing BioMod the original way (replacing the original deus ex files provided) and still didn't help.Does my Deus Ex just not like Biomod?

You have to remap the space bar from jump to jump/ledge grab.

Sometimes if you throw a grenade at her, she runs away and open the door.
