Thank you! That's what I ended up doing :) I'm playing through it now

boct1584: EDIT: If you DO decide to go with BioMod first, be warned: apparently, Lork decreased your maximum default jump height, to make the Athletics skill (which is Swimming in vanilla or Shifter) worth taking; this causes problems in Mission 2 if you sneak across the rooftops, because you may find yourself stuck unable to clear ledges that are just too high to jump.
Funny, I did the exact same thing at first when implementing the same skill in Human Renovation. Then I noticed the problem in mission 2 and changed it a bit.


But yeah, for a first playthrough, I'd either recommend Human Renovation or, if that's still too different from default for you, Deus Ex 2.0. Shifter and BioMod make some very significant changes to how the game feels, so it's kind of a different experience from the game as-is.
I love Deus Ex and would like to play it with some bugs fixed. Can anyone recommend a good mod/unofficial patch that works well. There's so many to chose from.

Deus Ex v2.0 or Deus Ex: Human Renovation, both linked in the OP, are your best bets.

It says that Human Renovation is an offshoot of v2.0 what does that mean?

They are separate patch efforts. Human Renovation is based on v2.0, but is not part of it.

Ah is there a list of changes or something I could look at?

Are yes, I looked at the changes and am still unsure if I should use it. What do you think, do you use any of them?

For a first playthrough, I would recommend one of the patch efforts (the aforementioned v2.0 or Human Renovation) instead of a mod that modifies the gameplay rules (Shifter, Enhanced, Biomod.) Or just play vanilla.

If you've played the game before, then do whatever you want.
I thought I should mention in here also that Deus Ex Enhanced 2.0 causes gigantic UI on a number of machines. In case anyone was having this trouble but didnt know the cause.
It doubles the size of the GUI, I believe, so my guess is that you aren't running the game at a particularly high resolution, causing the UI to look really huge. That, or maybe you forgot to tell the launcher to use the non-scaled GUI instead of the scaled one; maybe that would do it?
Note:

The MODDB link for New Vision does not work , displaying a page error.

http://www.gamefront.com/files/20648728/NewVisionV1.zip

The above link actually DOES work.

Based on the missing link, I would guess this project is now dead. Too bad really. Deus Ex could definitely use more texture updates.

tnoyce: Based on the missing link, I would guess this project is now dead.
Not at all. The project name on ModDB changed from "Deus Ex: New Vision" to just "New Vision" and the URL for the project changed, that's all. Fixed now.
So I am a little bit confused now. If I just want bug fixes but WITHOUT any gameplay changes, WITHOUT textures changes, etc., which mod should I apply?

EDIT: I assume the answer is probably Deus Ex v2.0?
