Current mod version: 1.00

-Twelve playable ME races added to the DW ones.
Alliance, Turians, Asari, Salarians, Quarians, Geth, Batarians, Volus, Vorcha, Elcor, Hanar and Krogan.
-Reapers, (replacing Shakturi)
-Customized shipart for each of the major races.
-Over 120 customized characters (generic characters form ME games will be included in future releases)
-Customized planets and effects graphics handpicked or made to deliver MOAR EPICNESS
-Sound effects and music matching ME setting and epic atmosphere.
More will be added as the mod develops.

-Unpack the 'ME mod 1.00' file into your Customization folder in your DW directory.
-The correct path should be: Distant Worlds\Customization\MassEffect mod 1.00
-Start the game and enable the mod in 'custom theme' section.
-Start a new game and kick some Reaper ass.
(make sure to enable the RoTs and DW:L events and storyline each time you start a new game to enable Reapers invasion)
NOTE: The mod will work only with Distant Worlds: Legends. It should work with any version but updating to the latest patch is recommended.

To install the recommended addons:

-The files from addons replace original game files so make sure to make a backup before you install anything.
-Unpack 'Graphics addon.rar' into your DW main directory, allow it to override the existing files.
-Unpack 'Sounds addon.rar' into your DW main directory, allow it to override the existing files.
-Start the game, and enjoy. (the addons will work for any mod theme you will play, not only ME)

I just have one thing to say : THIS IS THE MOST AWESOME MASS EFFECT MOD I HAVE EVER HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO TRY .... EVER. Can't believe you even put Mass effect songs in the mod. That adds so much to the atmosphere.

Hey, this sadly is far more instable than regular DW:Legends or when playing with Human Revolution, I get game-breaking errors almost every 10 minutes, from innocent things such as looking at the tech screen, click-selecting a gas giant or looking over the galaxy in the editor.

You're the first person with such difficulties. Try updating to the latest version of DW:Legends.

Any plans for Cerberus?

Cerberus, at least design-wise, pretty much is just a color-changed Systems Alliance, they use the same designs as the standard humans do in the Mass Effect universe.

In a future release probably. Right now we are waiting for the next Distant Worlds expansion (Shadows) and start update the mod after it is released.
