We did have a homepage at a place called network54 which help us but one day it got abanded along with all our pictures, files, download area. The only thing that still stays is the forum but none of the links work of course. I guess it is time to say goodbye to

Now, we can say hello to my Redsun2020 blog (and of course ModDB) to handle all the media information. The blog will have all latest updates and links to other special media coolness like HD walkthrough of the game and snapshot library of all the levels (currently in progress).

One thing people have told me throughout the years, is we did not spend much time on promotional and media content of the mod. This is what I am trying to do now. (Better than never right?)

As a huge Deus Ex fan I just had to point this out. Unless the title is misleading me, as I have not actually played the mod (sorry for critisizing it anyways), Nanotech was not available until the mid 2040s. Even then, it was barely out of prototype stage and only used by MJ12 and it's facade organisation UNATCO. In fact, Paul Denton is the first human who was succesfully augmented using Nanotech and that was in 2050 (JC received Nanotech-upgrades in 2052). That's just what bothers me about the title, there simply is no Nanotech in 2020 past a few blueprints and the Illuminati's plan for Paul Denton to be a clone archetype. It's not possible for Joseph to be a fully augmented agent in this year. This is pretty much canon since Deus Ex and it's cemented in Human Revolution.

I don't want to say this mod is bad, this is just an important fact to me as I am a huge Deus Ex fan. I guess it's just an alternate universe.

Firstly, I wouldn't consider it canon.
Secondly, I don't think it's set in the year 2020, Perhaps the title is somewhat misleading.
However, I could be wrong.

Very true. Not sure if the title is literal or not (haven't played the game), but it's fair to assume this isn't really designed to be canon because it's just a silly, fun mod.

Redsun2020 is very comparable to Zodiac mod for Deus Ex; they are both about 15 hours to play through and they both have no sound dialogue. But that's OK! Of the two however, Zodiac is much better.

The main critique I have with RS2020 is I really can't think of any level which stands out. This is what I think makes a retrospect a good review of a mod or not: if you can remember the levels, if they stand out in the memory, then that game has made a good impression on you.

With the Zodiac Mod, even though I played it 6 months ago, I can still remember the levels: The CIA building, the water tower, the lawn, the sub-levels, the coffin chamber, the airport, the plane, the president in the bunkers, the amazing UFO in the science lab, the eerie alien underground society.

All those levels were memorable and I will always remember them.

But with RS2020, I'm struggling to remember parts; bear in mind I just literally finished RS2020 3 hours ago and all I'm remembering is vague elements of labs, sewers, some city streets, a hotel lobby, some more sewers, some labs/ security stations and a dark subway platform.

A game has to imprint an emotional character for it to be remembered and appreciated. If the RedSun 2020 opening image of a building being blown up was represented in the game: say a hostage situation overseered by a tnt laced maniac AFTER you bonded with likable hostage characters...that would be atmospheric and it would leave a psychological mark. But I never felt any real atmosphere.

All in all, 7/10.

If you love Deus Ex and you want to extend it's game life as much as you can with mods, my picks are from best to to least best:

Nameless Mod - 15-20 hours of gameplay, very professional, a total conversion, full voice dialogue, sub-missions, 2 parallel storylines, good characters (great in the case of Scara B King!), new weapons, improvements, just very professional.

Zodiac Mod - probably the only criticism is the lack of voice dialogue which makes the game almost mute apart from the music and gun sounds.

Hotel Carone: One level but a very good one. THIS is an example of great map design. The premise couldn't be more simple, basically a cube (hotel) with about 10 levels. But within this cube is great level design. This is what the Red Sun hotel level could have been but wasn't.

RedSun 2020: Bonus points if you love Japan/ Tokyo, it's OK otherwise.

No don't download a torrent, It is just a slight alteration in the Steam version that stops alot of mods working.
What you need too do is replace the DeusEx.exe in the system folder with a different version.
Could try the Demo's exe, also they have one on the Off Topic Production forums you could look on there.

there's a funny bug in the place when you're escaping the place, whats its name again, there's some kind of thing with text, when you read it, you get 500 skill points. i can do that as many times as i want, i can get an infinity amount of skill points!
i won't tell you where to find it, you have to find it yourself. i just tell you it is somewhere in the rooms where the scientists are.

Its part of the main mission objectives, finding a contact while your escaping from that lab. When you find him dieing on the floor he says 'go to my... room'. Thats when the troopers come out, you see a datacube on the floor, it says the general location of his cubicle.
Then once your in the area you have to go to the one of the cubicle rooms where the light is turned off. In the cabinet is the book which gives 500 skill points.
