Mod Of The Year 2013 Editors Choice - Best Singleplayer Mod

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 (used in accordance with the mod's license).

All FastGamerr releases on ModDB and elsewhere have entered their end-of-life product stage for good in December 2015, meaning that absolutely no further technical support will be provided by FastGamerr. I am not omnisciently aware of how files that work perfectly fine on most systems can be harmful on others - use FastGamerr projects at your own risk!


* 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!
* One of the Top 100 mods in 2013 Mod of the Year Awards!

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 (you can read some of my follow-up thoughts from the anniversary retrospective). 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! :]

I sincerely hope that plenty of great mods will continue to be made for Deus Ex. :] Make sure to check these ones out!

Not to forget these games!

Or this song! ;]

Cheers, and best of luck in the future!

I'm from Hong Kong. I want to point out that the Chinese characters in original DX are so silly! Some characters direction are flipped, the meaning is so wrong. Totally break the immersion for me.
The H.K. atmosphere settings are wrong, location names are wrong, architects are wrong. Why western people think H.K. this way?
Anyway, appreciate the hard work of this mod. But the extensive use of Chinese characters in this mod have gone too far, I just can't take it but to point out the faults.

DE is set in 2052. That's why the architecture feels "wrong." It's from the future!

There's a simple answer: most people don't go out of their way to visit places throughout the world, instead they visualize about it through what they hear. That's why Western media has a stereotypical view of how many Asian locations look like.

As for the language, blame that on FastGamerr not taking the time to actually learn Chinese. Bad! :P

@FastGamerr: Those are some nice locations. Especially the second picture. I know many places which actually look like the second location here too.

Deus Ex borrowed a lot of concepts and visuals from "Ghost in the shell (1995)". The Hong Kong cyberpunk atmosphere in Ghost film is correct and feels legit.

Anyway I like the quality of this mod, far exceeds the quality of amateur works.

Coming in 2052: The multilingual FastGamerr Special Version of Deus Ex: Nihilum. Now in 164 languages! Sadly since the world would be in chaos, none would bother with it.

Thanks for the feedback. Admittedly my editing style was always to take some key locations, base them on real ones ( for example: G.co and 3vilcrayon.deviantart.com ) and join them together with something hopefully authentic. That's amateur mods for ya. :]

Hey man any updates on your mod terminus machina? i remember playing it a bit two summers ago i think but it was a demo then probs.

And yeah he told me he was busy too, such a shame he could have made a sequel to Deus ex with all the same characters, and voice acting with similar voices from people for specific characters, this is actually something no one seems to have done.

Just noticed in the Hong Kong level that the launduromat washers in that level are actually Miele WS5406's, I didn't know Miele still made them in 2049 as they were last made in the late 90s!

Nice touch for choosing the Miele Professional line though, FastGamerr.

Mark my words, there will be interest in retro late-1990s German washing machine-replicas in Hong Kong of the late 2040s. ;]

Looks like you have Kentie's Launcher installed wrongly, since it's trying to use the OTP UI fix and failing. Try reinstalling it. Or change your screen resolution from the .ini files.
