System Shock 2

I've just managed to get my hands on System Shock 2 and was poking around for mods to improve gameplay and so forth and I stumbled across the SHTUP project. It's probably old news but from the look of the comparisons between the old and the new textures (an example) I'd say it is an absolutely essential mod .

Any other recommendations for mods that will improve my enjoyment of what is supposed to be one of the best FPS-RPGs ever made would be greatly appreciated.

Well, I believe there's either a patch or mod that allows you to disable the weapon degradation. Trust me, you need it. Firing a clip of pistol rounds and having the gun shatter is not only frustrating but incredibly stupid too.

I'd consider the ReBirth mod equally essential. It replaces most of the character models in the game with more detailed versions and more high res textures. Does a lot to improve the atmosphere in the game even further, in my opinion.

It's a bit tricky to install properly though so make sure you follow the instructions carefully. Otherwise you might end up with all the characters in the game being invisible, I noticed.

Yeah, and it's hard enough as is when you can actually SEE The Many.

I know I'm engaging in some serious thread necromancy here but I thought might be OK in this instance.

Apparently, System Shock 2 has finally been released to the secondary DRM free market legally. It's available now at GOG.com and from what I've heard at Steam soon too.




Considering trying out (or returning to) SWTOR? You may as well go through my link and help get me some SWTOR referral points!
