Being new on this forum I think I should start with introducing myself. (it is not the best place to do it for sure, but I won't be long)
I have been checking your website for a while, and I have to say it is such a great work that you are doing, congratulations! I've been a Deus ex fan since it was released and can't wait to play Revision.
I just realized you might be re-doing Paris levels by now.
Living in Paris, I must say that in the original version of Deus ex Paris did not look right . It was far too small in my opinion, and not very convincing. I mean, Deus ex is not a realistic game,of course, yet I think those levels should have been made more true to life because otherwise it destroys the immersion.
For example, the cathedral does not stand for any existing cathedral, which is a bit disappointing given that real monuments are included in the game ( the statue of Liberty,Castle Clinton) . Making it look more like Notre-Dame de Paris could be a great way of improving it (though I don't know if this would ever be possible using the Unreal Engine for I can't program nor build game levels myself).
Then, in Denfert-Rochereau -before you go into the catacombs- there is a grate which prevents you from accessing the square with the lion statue. Maybe this should be fixed?
Also it is said in the game that Paris is under martial law whereas all you can see in the streets is just normal cops (and maybe also a few riot cops if i do remember well).What about including a few French soldiers in the game, as they are actually patrolling important locations in Paris (such as the Tour Eiffel or the main stations, due to the terrorist threat)?
I've been searching the internet for some pictures which could be inspiring . I can send them to you if you are interested. I'll also be able to take a few myself if needed.
I'm not telling you what you should do (as I said, I don't know anything about level editors), as you may have worked things out already; I just hope this helps.
Sorry for my bad english, i'm doing my best^^
oh, and sorry for the long post!
Keep up the good work!
EDIT: As JC points out "French army has nothing to do with the coup" So let's forget about this one.
However, riot cops could be added instead.
