10 Years ago, Deus Ex was released. Its unique First-Person/RPG elements and amazing story makes it one of the most amazing Single-Player games ever. Shortly after the release of the Multiplayer Patch, an SDK was released allowing Fans and Modders alike, to tell their own 'Deus Ex Story'. Here on Moddb, there are many Big Single Player mods featured; The Nameless Mod, ZODIAC, Redsun 2020, but lost in the depths of the Internet are many other little Fan Missions that should be recongnised. The Purpose of this Moddb page is so I can upload some of these Missions, Most of Which feature in the Mod List hosted by Off Topic Productions, and allow easier access to downloading and playablity. I have optimised many of these Fan Missions to work with the UCModLoader if they didn't already. I am not credit for any of the mods uploaded here. All Credit will be given in Readme Files.
I've just uploaded a little modification I found on the web created by one ArcaneX; Thievery Mutator. I only found this a little while back and thought it was a pretty neat little thing.
"what this does is change your translucency depending on the amount of
light falling on you, allowing you to effectively be invisible in the dark. With
a new AI visibility system in Deus Ex, now you can also effectively hide from
the bot AI. You even get a lightgem to check your visibility, just like the
Thief games. "
I don't think I could have explained it better than the readme. :)
I am also working on getting a really great mod named 'Counterfeit' uploaded. Some of you may know it, some may not. Back in the days when PlanetDeusEx was still active, Counterfeit was being developed by Ghandaiah and his team over there. Man, Some more old Deus Ex Community History for you. I, For One, was very impressed with this one and felt the need to share. I have it working but the mod loader refuses to use the new Player Class. So at the moment, everyone calls you by the protagonist's name, Dom Bishop, but you look like JC. I'm still looking into that.
In other news, a new Deus Ex Forum as erupted in the mists of the internet and needs more support. I hear they even caught the attention of Eidos for a little DX3 Side Project. It is mainly a DXMP forum but they have a Single Player Sub-Forum that I should be hanging around abit.
Multiplayer is strong there and they are attempting to build the MP Community back up and need your support.
I suggest any Deus Ex fan check it out and become part of the discussions about Deus Ex, get some help with your own maps and soon hopefully join servers bussling with players. Like I said, Check this forum for all the information you will need. Deusexmultiplayer.freeforums.org
Which reminds me, If anyone has any suggestions for maps that should be on Moddb (Or have a map you have created and what to get it noticed), Drop me and PM and I'll take alook and upload it with all credit given! :D
