I think the author of the DX11 mod is still working on an official version for Gothic 1.
Not yet! I've just been tweaking so far.

I will look up what I did..
I installed the following (as per the Steam guide I linked to):
1. Install a fresh copy of Gothic (from GOG)
2. Install the 1.08k patch (not necessary, as it was included in the GOG install)
3. Install the Player Kit (link)
4. Install the System Kit (link)
5. Install version 14 of the Gothic 2 DX11 mod (link)
6. Install the Gothic 1 specific ddraw.dll, by replacing it in the System folder (link)
7. Install Freddy's enhanced graphics mod (link)

I grabbed the "enhanced font" file and will be trying it out later. Also, I noticed there's an alternate graphics pack, from TheilHater or something? Is that better than Freddy's?

Also, should I install the IronKeep patch? And if so, what version do you guys advise?
There's the "Gothic Unofficial Patch v1.0" (link), but also the "Gothic I: Ironkeep Community Patch v0.9.2 (RC 2)" (link). That latter is only a release candidate though, so I'm a little hesitant…
