In Forum City, the Internet is serious business. As its name implies, the city is the physical embodiment of Internet forums and bulletin boards. It's more like The Matrix or Tron than Second Life, however, as the troubles of the city are no laughing matter. Embracing the style of Deus Ex, Forum City has as much crime and conspiracy as the world of JC Denton — but most citizens would have it no other way.

The lust for power seems to come easily to those who call the city their home; everywhere there are factions scheming to increase their reach, or even wrest control of the city itself. Were it not for a peacekeeping triumvirate of invulnerable Moderators the city would quickly plunge into chaos.

This has been the way of things for as long as most care to remember.

But now, the balance of power has been upset. Unthinkably, a Moderator has disappeared, and panic is gripping the city. With the remaining Moderators spread far too thin, the lawless have found themselves with the freedom to prey upon others, and formerly suppressed rivalries threaten to explode into open conflict.

You are called upon to silence the discord.

Throughout the course of the game, you take on the avatar of Trestkon, a former intelligence agent whose reasons for leaving the city are mysterious, at best. Negotiating for his return was an act of desperation, but having known him personally, the remaining Moderators trust that he can find their missing colleague before it is too late.

Two years can change a man, however, and Trestkon's loyalty is not set in stone. Now imbued with legal authority, he could tip the balance of power in virtually anyone's favour, and the multitude of factions are well aware. Corrupt corporations, religious fanatics, cyber-terrorists, and even deadly computer programs will stop at nothing to gain Trestkon's allegiance.

Your task is simple: Save the world. The rest is up to you.


  • An imaginative new setting unlike any game you've played before (yet very familiar to any netizen).
  • 59 levels of gameplay plus a new training mission, 6 intro and endgame cinematics, and two secret bonus maps!
  • 20 original new weapons, many of which are unique and may only be acquired once through the game.
  • Several unique pre-modded versions of original Deus Ex weaponry to be stolen from particular characters upon defeating them.
  • The ability to fight with your bare hands, or to make use of several different gloves to augment your furious blows.
  • A weapon shop where you can buy original DX weapons, equipment, and ammunition.
  • Hundreds of emails, books, newspapers, notepads, and datacubes.
  • Multipage info-devices allow for many pages per book or datacube for the really inquisitive player.
  • Over 100 entirely new character skins and many more combinations of old skins!
  • Actual nanoaugmented enemies. You can view their augmentations with the Targetting aug and disable them with EMP attacks.
  • More customization: Choose between two different character models, 5 different faces for each, and eyewear!
  • A ton of new decorations and items.
  • Two parallel story arcs, that branch early in the game, and plenty of side-missions.
  • An almost ridiculously responsive story with a detailed denouement at the end.
  • Choice and consequence: Major characters will remember if you knock them out.
  • A script of 200,000 words of dialogue, monologue, infolink messages, and AI barks.
  • More than 13,000 fully recorded lines of very high quality.
  • Eye-pleasing graphical detail with HDTP support!
  • New high-quality ogg music for every level (over 100 tracks!).
  • A myriad of secrets, easter eggs, and little details to encourage replaying.
  • Goals will be updated as you progress through the missions.
  • Greater implementation of difficulty levels: Enemies and pickups will depend on your chosen difficulty.

It’s Mod Appreciation Week here on ModDB, which means we want you to give back to the creators of your favourite mods by telling them how much you enjoy and appreciate their craft. Head to Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, or the comments below and tell us about your most important mods with the tag #modlove2017. Alternatively, head to the Mod Profile for each of your favourite mods and follow the links on the Mod Appreciation Week bar.


My own PC gaming experience is one defined as much by the big triple-A releases as it is the mods that have been created for them. I’d like to share with you some of the most significant of those mods, and thank the creators who made them what they are.

I still remember my first time diving into a Battlefield 1942 match, and being in awe of the fact that the plane which went whizzing overhead was being flown by a real person. But it wasn’t until I tried Desert Combat, which brought Battlefield 1942 into the modern era and turned that plane into an AC-130 gunship, that I got my first taste of where PC multiplayer gaming would be headed for the next decade. Pretty much all multiplayer shooters of significant scale today can be traced back to Desert Combat, and deservedly so.

As much as I enjoyed Desert Combat, and its direct influence on the modern era that Battlefield would travel to for its second instalment, I didn’t fall deep into a multiplayer mod until Project Reality came around. This hardcore realism mod didn’t just remove enemy indicators and up bullet damage – it required you to specialise loadouts and communicate as a squad in a way that only hardcore military sims demand. I even made a video series chronicling our squad’s matches – check out a super old episode below, from before YouTube had widescreen!

Max Payne’s obvious influence, The Matrix, only imparted one iconic aspect to the third-person shooter – slow-motion bullet effects. To complete The Matrix influence, Max Payne needed kung fu – and so that’s exactly what this mod added. Though it didn’t fit the game’s hard-boiled noir tones, the kung fu moves were incredibly fun to use – and actually complemented the game’s shoot-dodging perfectly. Unofficially, this mod is the best way to replay Max Payne.

Mods don’t need to be as grandiose and large scale as the ones I’ve listed here – sometimes they can just be a single level, with a single premise, but done so well that they don’t need anything else. That’s exactly what The Ladder map for Jedi Outcast was: a single, circular arena that spawned increasingly difficult waves of lightsaber-wielding enemies to throw yourself against. The Ladder was what everyone wanted from a Star Wars game at the time: the ultimate lightsaber-duel gauntlet. Pro-tip: enable dismemberment for truly authentic Star Wars imagery.

Despite the ridiculous premise of The Nameless Mod – in which you visit the physical manifestation of an internet forum to solve a Deus Ex-like conspiracy riddled with stale memes – it actually exemplified the gameplay and structure that made Deus Ex great. It arguably surpasses Deus Ex in some ways, chief among them being the ability to actually stick with an in-game faction throughout the entire game, and see the story branch as a result. Who’d have thought a mod could be more Deus Ex, than Deus Ex?

While pining for a modern follow-up to the classic Thief games, I came across this Doom 3 mod which turned the amazing lighting and shadowing (at the time) of the id Tech 4 engine into a stealthy first-person sneak-‘em-up. What those original Thief games had in spades was atmosphere, and The Dark Mod effortlessly recaptured that with a fidelity and a few new surprises that make this one of the most accomplished total conversions in existence. Here’s a playthrough I recorded a few years ago.

There’s little I can say about DayZ that hasn’t already been said, but it’s only while writing this list that, in retrospect, it combines aspects from many of my favourite mods into one intoxicating package. There’s the modern-era weaponry and vehicles. The requirement to communicate with one-another as a tight-knit squad. The pitch-black darkness, permadeath, and sound mechanics that trigger zombies encourage stealth at all times. And the fact that all of these combined create some unforgettable emergent stories that you feel emotionally invested in. Enjoy one of my favourite sessions below, in which we went from nothing, to fighting another squad in a helicopter. Crazy stuff.

The installations aren't installing any files except for the patch notes and Maps folder with the file TNMLoadSave.dx whitin. I tried to download it on my pc and my laptop and accured on both devices. Is there something wrong with the installations?

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

Maybe your antivirus is blocking them try disabling your antivirus for a while.

Reply Good karma Bad karma+1 vote

I did, but all it installed is the patchnotes and TNMLoadSave.dx.

Sort of, but I hear the mods get pretty buggy when combined.
