GMDX is an award-winning large-scale modification for the 2000 PC classic Deus Ex. GMDX addresses the many flaws of the game, polishes it to a very high standard, and adds new layers of depth that one would have hoped to see in a sequel. GMDX is executed with the strict parameter of staying true to the original design principles that define Deus Ex, and seeks to improve all aspects of design excluding the plot and soundtrack. The cumulative result thus far is said to be, and aims to be the "definitive Deus Ex experience".

Why not. It looks cool. What's the invisibility effect, again?

looks pretty sexy though I agree with the person above that my first gut reaction also said "invisibility effect"

The invisibility effect is a lot more invisible.

Would it be possible to display/overlay the static effect above the regular hand and weapon textures? Perhaps make it a little less noticeable then, just to give it the feeling that something is activated.

Something like this: I.imgur.com

I know this was done in UE2 but I don't know if this would work on UE1.

I don't think so. Options in Unreal 1 are very limited.
Unless a custom version of the texture is made for each an every holdable object, which would be a ridiculous amount of work for such a small thing.
Or maybe as a detail texture. Hmm. Need to look into it more.

I think it would be better to have something a bit like those waves from the multitool, being disposed around the visible parts of the player a bit like the UT shield belt.
The thing is I don't mind the effect though, I think having a visible cue to what an augmentation does is fine, and it's not always easy to get something believable. also the multitool since I used it as an example is unrealistic as you see waves from it while in reality you won't see a thing except if the receiver have a LED showing that it's receiving something ...

Description

Yes, it should only make you transparent to radar systems, not the naked eye, but [insert technobabble or pseudo-science to justify the effect because otherwise cloak would just be that much more appealing].

Edit: and here's that pseudo-science: JC's vision is augmented, and thus is distorted by the effect too.
