Welcome Modders and Mod users,

I'm trying to fix some of the "uglies" in ME1 and give it the polished look the epic story line deserves. So far I have updated/re-textured: Light and Shadow Maps on walls and floors, Kaidan, Tali, Garrus, Wrex, Liara, Saren, Benezia, Udina, Council, Anderson, Joker, Chakwas, Colonists, Scientists, Keepers, Normandy, Mako, many NPC clothings, Geth ship, volus, hanar, elcor, some armors and default character armors including N7 armor (of characters re-textured). This was Acheived by texture editing (up-scaling, re-painting, adding details, adding textures, adding bump maps, and rebuilding normal maps). Finally, but probably my favorite, I made a new Film Grain Texture to replace the muddy Film Grain with a much less obnoxious ME2 "looking" effect. Now you can keep film grain on and still have a crisp picture.

Requests are always welcome :)

This mod is free and always will be. Over the years I have had a few offers for donations and I have recently decided that I will attempt to accept donations only if they are to support me and if you find my services (continued efforts and support) helpful. The donations are not for the mod or any content within. If you, like some, simply want to show appreciation for my efforts then by all means please donate. It will help me continue modding, cover software, and cover PC hardware costs which I use to mod. If you are inclined to do so, I thank you sincerely :)

Just wanted to report that the Liara Body tpf you uploaded to the Nexus seems to be bugged for me. Liara's scientist outfit textures were glitchy and I was able to resolve it by replacing BIOA_NOR10_08_DSG.SFM with the one from your complete mod torrent.

Update. Had to apply Low Res-fix on HMF_ARM_CTHh_Liara_Norm to fix. Was about to tear my hair out battling with this.

I have a question, will you ever (or is there a way at all) update relay texture from the loading screen (talking about this one: Img2.wikia.nocookie.net)?

I would love to. I just have not been able to find where this is stored in the files. If anyone knows and can let me know, I will re-texture it, if its a movie I will rebuild it because it drives me nuts as well. I would laso like to touch up the menu backgrounds in the opening menu etc...I have a hunch they are stored similarly and ME3Explorer/Texplorer currently can't access the files.

I don't know how this would help, but the actual scenes are located in BioGame\CookedPC\Movies

Great mod man! Mass Effect 1 is definitely the best of the series for me (and in fact the best game of all time by my book! :D) and this greatly improves it!!!

Emily Wong doesn't have any eyebrows. Is this a bug or intended?

I tried installing the mod again, but no change.

I have to say I don't have anything bad to say about this mod. It fixes the only downside of the original mass effect, that is that the textures looked quite low resolution, something I have often noticed (and disliked) when playing through the game. The amazing quality, a lot of painful hard work, and clearly a lot of dedication shown in the creation of this in my mind justifies a full 10 out of 10. You fixed the only thing I did not like about ME1, and I thank you for it. My re-play of the whole…
