"If Eternity was stopping it would of course be set going shortly."
-E. M. Forster, The Machine Stops

The Future. Benevolent God-AI runs the world? League of Evil Asshole Masterminds manages the clockwork Earth from the shadows?

Nope. Just a lot of buggy paramilitary drones blowing up schools, incompetent elite wrecking the planet with endless financial crises, and mass unemployment as robots shove workers out of offices and into endless breadlines run out of bread in bankrupt states. Yeah, it's a mess.

There's a Tahrir Square, an Occupy Revolution every day as robots replace 60% of humans in the workplace and crushing austerity measures create unresolvable social unrest and upheaval. Countless popular and revolutionary movements have sprung up across the planet -- from grass-roots resistances like World Class War to Humanitarian NGOs like Fenix foundation to armed-insurgents like the Washingtonians. But as New York, London, and Tokyo crumble into Detroit-like necropolises scarred by class warfare between jobless insurgents and robotic riot-soldiers, trillionaires bunker into the "Pluto-claves" -- private cities run by AI and defended by fleets of autonomous drones armed with gatling railguns and tactical nukes. The Archangels' smartbombs wipe a dozen Occupy Movement-saturated blocks off the Manhattan map, daily. The class war is stacked against the 99% as the kleptocrats have holed up behind a dozen feet of steel and Skynet armies that make the Pentagon look like a posse of peashooters.

But as veteran hackers will tell you -- no security perimeter is fully impermeable. Machines run the world, but no machine is foolproof. There's always a back door, a security hole.

Take on the role of an operative in the Hex Gen network, a decentralized movement of hacktivists resisting the economic pillaging conducted by the unholy alliances of Big Tech, Big Military, and Big Finance. United over a loose constellation of ad-hoc mesh-internets, Hex Gen (AKA Generation Hex) are a new class of freedom fighter. Though necessarily shrouded in secrecy, Hex Gen thus far is the only group to have carried out successful attacks against the Plutos. They've dealt crippling DDoS attacks to crooked corporations, tanked corrupt investment banks with electronic financial manipulation and successfully taken control of drones and androids in the armies of CyberSec -- the leading "counter-insurgency" military/law enforcement contractor. Still, some believe Hex Gen is just a gang of criminals and thieves in it for their own profit. Perhaps time will tell.

Ubiquitous 3D fabrication means everything from smartphones to TVs to cars can be printed in your living room. The Marxist Egalitarians have declared the Age of Abundance -- except the Copyright Cartels have bought ownership to not only every mp3, movie, and book ever written, but also the "fabprints" to every physical object as well, and won't hesitate to have a Predator drop a hellfire missile on your home if you're caught pirating a Honda Civic. Oh, and Big Agro also owns every species of plague-resistant food crop in the plant and animal kingdoms. Starvation, they say, is the ultimate motivator.

The superhighway to the Future is leading toward a sixteen car pileup, and no one's behind the wheel but idiotic megalomaniacs making their Golden Parachutes as Rome burns and crap software hacked together by low-paid Chinese sweatshops. Fasten your seatbelt.

Will you join the code warriors, the Info-Pirates and rip the global kingpins a new one with your wits and technological know-how, or will you become a Made Man with the white-shoe Monopolists, live it large in orbital villas far away from the artificial famines below?

Features:
* Facial, vocal biometric capture devices
* "Nohface" electronic face projector for thwarting surveillance/drones which cover almost every inch of city
* Wireless internet-Darknets: all web activity is fully surveilled, thus you need stealth not only in meatspace but in cyberspace
*
More types of hacking: cryptography, DDoS, spoofing.
* Write your own malware, unleash it on the internet to infect machines to create your own botnet army.
*
Hunger: experience real economic destitution as you slowly die of starvation and are forced to beg, steal, or even kill for a piece of bread.
*
DIY: Upgrade your hemp trenchcoat with solar trim, syphon electricity from the private power grid.
* Mechanical hacking: Take apart old phones and radios to hack together an EMP gun, reverse engineer a captured police-state drone into your own personal bodyguard.
* Nature Punk: set up a hydroponic garden in your squatted flat so you don't have to kill for every meal.

* Biohacking: play God with your own DNA to give yourself bone-hammer knuckles, bat-like sonar, or cheetah-like musculoskeletal structure. Just be careful not to turn yourself into Frankenstein or give yourself an artificial cancer!
I'm right now a one man army here working two other jobs, so if you can spare some help or a donation to help me focus on this mod it would be hugely appreciated!

Happy 2014! I hope everyone has been only moderately assaulted by the black Amazon helicopters!

There is a rumor of a possibly hackable satellite. And a moon base. Yeah, we just went there. That's right.

Satellite

"Also, I know we thought of something that could be used to effectively hijack a drone, but what about hijacking a satellite? To start from the beginning. There is a suggested theory about having massive solar panels in space that could harvest energy from the sun at greater levels and would transmit it, in microwave rays, to a receiving station on Earth.

Your belated Christmas present: high-energy laser weapons exploding drones!

Plus sparking robosoldiers that are now susceptible to EMP grenades. (Great job coding, xen0phile!

Edible birds and rats! The next fast food joint will be a District Ten KFC squatted by the Duck Dynasty guy, who crossbow-hunts pigeons, then deep fries them in used motor oil since he lost his TV show contract at A&E. (also thanks to xen0phile)

In other news, JCDenton2000's new and obligatory super secret hacktivist revolutionary headquarters is well underway to completion, along with the Chinese ghetto.

Our lead modeller, AlvinD, is also hard at work cutting the Maya ice, and his latest screens of the signal jammer look very promising.

So that's the news there! SilverSpook has been helping in a producer's capacity and has continued writing but the new members of the team have been really doing the heavy lifting of keeping the revolt against the corporate-state alive in the Deus Ex world.

Hello again :) been playing a lot of this mod and im really liking it! But i am unable to progress in the storyline because of the big guy guarding club bikini. Whenever i go near him (the selection box appears) the game just stops.. the music goes on but i can't to anything but open taskmanager and force it to close. Maybe something to do with the conversation?

i have a weird problem.. when I get to the sniffing part in the tutorial, the packets thing just doesn't show up on my screen, i hear the sniffing noise just fine, but i don't see how many packets i've got. Also, it doesn't seem to be doing anything besides the noise, because i can't change the algorithms or the tables :(

Hm, weird. Try pressing the "m" button to turn on the mini map and the sniffing info. Do scrambled packets show up in the Hack screen?

oh, did you have a bunch and then just use them all at once? If they were all stacked, that is a bug that existed before the latest patch. If you install the latest patch it should give you schematics with each gram chip, rather than stacking the gram chips which effectively turns them into copies of a single one.

hmm simply reloading the save didn't fix it, After starting a new game and reloading the saves, schematics are showing up now. Probably due to v1 saves or something.

Terminus Machina is a very interesting mod, you can do things that you couldn't do in Deus Ex. It has new skins, textures, items, skills, music, and augs, as well as a level of design that is superb. Very nice mod!!!!!
