A new update to DSM is available - at the same link in the 1st post of this thread.

New Features:

Arnie as RPC; please test and report
Various changes to maps and characters
Tilesets: New tweaks to destruction of objects by gunfire

Hints:

In order to end the game, Player has to talk to Enrico. Enrico appears when
Miguel declares hostility. Don't use alt-o cheats to kill Miguel or other
means to kill him without him declaring hostility.

Some NPC's that were friends or RPC's in vanilla are now rebel fighters.
The game is not broken if they are hostile.
Using deidranna's boat, we can go to balime and the Maps in the south-east
of the strategic map to find allies.

When fighting enemies in N7, talk to brewster during battle to find the
last "enemy". Don't use alt-o cheats.

Hiring Kingpin: Hire Damon first in order to enter Kingpin's mansion. If
you can't hire Damon, you won't be able to hire Kingpin either. Basically,
you should be able to hire them unless you somehow messed with them.

Issues:

I sometimes have issues with the trader interface. Try using Bobby Ray
instead, hire the traders (most of them can be hired, not quite all). Some
traders like Raul and Betty Fung are not fully implemented yet (due to the
trader interface issue).

Not every character or quest has been adjusted, so vanilla dialogue and
speech that is now unfitting may still occur frequently. Skyrider or other
NPC's may refer to Deidranna in a way not consistent with the mod. The idea
is to slowly replace these lines, but i see it as largely a cosmetic issue.
Please report such occurrences s we can populate a list.

Sometimes, hiring the Druggist fails. It is not quite clear yet why.

When Skyrider asks to be brought to his chopper, he is already standing
right beside it. For technical reasons, you have to move him one tile in
tactical to his chopper. Don't escort him to Drassen.

The exe will still regularly use text inconsistent with the story of DSM. I
consider this largely cosmetic, but fixing it would require replacing all
hardcoded references all over the place in the code. It is not planned to
do that at this time. DSM would be thankful if new hardcode references
would be made to generic terms such as "enemies, hostiles, soldiers" or
whatever rather than "Deidranna's forces" or the like.

avoid A9 Omerta for the time being, it may crash the game

Have fun happy
