>I haven't played this before, what do I need?
Why the fuck haven't you played it yet you fucking nigger? Regardless you'll want to play the game vanilla/no mods so just install it and go. Try to avoid (more) spoilers about it until you're done.
Optionally if you're on a modern OS e.g. Windows 7 use Deus Exe and the Direct3D 10 renderer (mostly this prevents shadows looking all fucked up but it will also look a little bit better) https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Deus_Ex#Deus_Exe (also see the bit just above it about the better maps)
>I've played it a few times before and want to try it with a mod
I'll run through some of the biggest names (pcgamingwiki also covers these), there are a ton more you can either ask anons ITT for or find yourself
New Vision: most of the games textures remade into HD. Doesn't change the game's artstyle so I can either take it or leave it.
HDTP: replaces models and textures with new ones, new character models are often radically different and clash with existing ones. Don't recommend unless you can remove the cancer.
Shifter: minor gameplay changes for loot, augmentations, enemies. The new unique loot is usually overpowered, the random loot means you can find extra augmentations and weapon upgrades on anyone and the mod gives you fucking XP for kills and stealth so really it fucks up the game and I don't recommend it.
Biomod: shifter but with new features and no XP for kills. Better than Shifter but still not a huge fan of it.
GMDX: probably most fairly described as vanilla+, makes the game a bit harder too. Good for when you've played the base game to death already. Has additional addons available on its moddb page and comes with both New Vision and HDTP already but disables most of the cancer HDTP added (it uses the meshes as a basis for its own work I believe). Far better than the two others I've played (Shifter and Biomod) in mPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
