Mod Of The Year 2013 Editors Choice - Best Singleplayer Mod



- DOWNLOAD | FAQ | SOUNDTRACK -

Please install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 runtimes before installing the mod itself!



Initial Story
In 2049, unsavory conditions are rampant throughout the world. As soon as it becomes clear that a terrorist attack in Shenzhen, China, was carried out by perpetrators with ties to international groups and that Hong Kong may be their next target - the United Nations Anti-Terrorist Coalition (UNATCO) dispatches their first nano-augmented agent, Mad Ingram, into the city to prevent the situation from escalating any further.


Deus Ex: Nihilum (DXN, DEN or Nihilum for short) is a First Person Shooter mod taking place in an alternate Deus Ex continuity. It features new made-from-scratch original content, while also extensively featuring material from the UNATCO Born mod (used with permission from fender2k1, UB's project leader) and Deus Ex: Revision (2011 build - used in accordance with the mod's license).


* Over 15,000 downloads!
* Completely new score with 80+ tracks (over 2 hours of music
)
* 2,200+ lines (more than 3.5 hours of audio)
* 7-13 hours of gameplay (estimate based on testers' playthrough times)
* Three new weapons: the Walther P99 pistol, Light Machine Gun 2049, Gauss Gun (EMP)
- Exploration is everything! Treat the levels as mazes and prepare for back-tracking! While it can be baffling that people are leaving valuable items and other belongings out in the open, agent Ingram doesn't seem to mind!
- Save often and use several savegame slots! This will hopefully save you a lot of time when it comes to handling certain odd issues.
- Encrypted datacubes: Remember, once you've hacked an encrypted datacube, you have to click on it again to make the datacube information window disappear.
- General rule on hacking: Keep in mind that you do not need this skill to advance the main plot itself. However, its general usefulness cannot be underestimated!

Deus Ex: Nihilum - Wallpaper 02 - Emblem

"Aside from the weak voice acting, Nihilum would even qualify as a commercial add-on for the original Deus Ex." - Lassi Lapintie, Pelit 8/2013

Big thanks to everyone who featured the mod!

Additional thanks to everyone who voted DXN into MOTY 2013 Top 100!

Deus Ex: Nihilum was also reviewed by the most prominent Finnish gaming magazine, Pelit, in their August 2013 issue (thus also fulfilling one of my earliest goals when it came to editing games). Suuret kiitokset!

DXN WIP November 2011 - Hong Kong



Naturally, it's obvious that you can't please everyone and DXN certainly did receive plenty of feedback from all parts of the spectrum. However, after going through all the trouble to finish the mod, I was very glad to find out that my efforts were appreciated by fellow DX editors like Trasher64 and {zXc}Henry from Deus Ex: Revision and SilverSpook from Terminus Machina. All in all, I'm very satisfied with the reception the mod got.

DXN WIP October 2011 - Forichi Night Club


Don't forget that if you run into weird issues in DXN, PLEASE CHECK THE FAQ FIRST FOR POSSIBLE HELP! If that doesn't cut it, please check if the OTP Forums have had any experience over similar issues.

In addition to having its own TVTropes entry, I'm glad that there are multiple playthrough videos of the mod on YouTube - some bringing up valid points! If you want to see a 100% complete playthrough of DXN, here are at least three playthroughs worth checking out!


Deus Ex: Nihilum - Queens, New York City


To sum things up/TL;DR:
With critical acclaim from most of the players, fellow notable DX editors, ModDB and the gaming press, Deus Ex: Nihilum was a definite success! I really can't thank you enough! :]

Make sure to check Terminus Machina out!

Cheers, and good luck!

Nihilum mod is the first Deus Ex mod I have played and I really like it, I am playing it again RightNow again this time for MPS (First time I played for Illuminati) and enjoying it a lot what I like about this mod it feels like Deus Ex. The soundtrack,the cyberpunk setting, all set in an alternate Deus Ex universe which is great because I am a big fan of Deus Ex. I hope in the future we will see more Total Conversion Deus Ex mods like this (set in a dark cyberpunk setting with great soundtrack) :)

Dude, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is about to drop! Get ready for the traffic bump :)

BTW, this is still the best Deus Ex Mod of all time.

Thanks again for the opportunity to voice act as Number One!

No DX:MD bump for DXN, it seems. Alas, such is life. :]

Still eternally grateful to you (and all other contributors, of course!) for all your contributions to DXN! Once again - cheers, man!

This is a most excellent mod, FastGamerr. I mention it in Part III of my tribute to DeusEx.

I'm getting lag despite having fast laptop and can't change rendering. In game changing just opens original Deus Ex.

In the fgrhk.ini file, does changing the GameRenderDevice line help at all?

For example, if you use the DX10 renderer, it would likely say
GameRenderDevice=D3D10Drv.D3D10RenderDevice

So for OpenGL you could change that line to
GameRenderDevice=OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice

Fixed already. Just had to find and edit same file in different folder.
