Deus Ex: Nihilum (DXN, DEN or Nihilum for short) is a First Person Shooter mod taking place in an alternate Deus Ex continuity - released on May 28th 2013. 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 (used in accordance with the mod's license).

Hey! It's that time again. The latest patch (1.2) for Deus Ex: Nihilum has been released, fixing a large array of major and minor bugs among other issues. Turns out that my plan for retiring and successfully performing my stage exit from gaming didn't go as smoothly as planned, thanks to Unreal Engine 1.5 and myself for making all kinds of never-before-seen issues turn up following the release.
Patch 1.2 is also the last one. One could spend finetuning the mod's details for eternity but that's something I didn't meant to do after May 28th - which was supposed to be the last day when the Unreal Editor was supposed to have been installed on my computer! So it goes.
1) Save often and use several savegame slots!
2) If you get a bug after you do something specific, well... don't do it!
3) If the frustration is too overwhelming - take a break, regroup and focus your gaming attention on Terminus Machina for example!
I know, kind of cheap advice. Also, this experience has made it obvious that I am not or wasn't cut out to be a software/game developer - and thus it just further cements the entire swan song/stage exit from gaming aspect of this project. With this patch I can finally attain a similar feeling of closure for game editing in general as I got with TODOA for JK editing. 8)
But once again, I'm extremely grateful to everyone who has taken any effort to give this mod a shot! The overall reception of this mod still has far exceeded my expectations and I'm extremely glad to have ended my modding endeavours on such a high note!
