Mass Effect Updated/Improved Textures Mod (TexMod free version)
This is the latest version of the mod, it is a direct install, extract ALL 7 parts into the same location of your choosing and run the ME1UITM.exe and follow prompted instructions. Make sure to direct the install to your MassEffect folder.
You may have to re-setup your graphics settings and .ini tweaks after install, this only needs to be done once. To further improve shadows clear your shader cache using MassEffectConfig.exe, the mod installs some tweaks to the actual shaders and will now render shadows more similarly to ME2.
Most of all...Enjoy

Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like M.E.U.I.T.M. We love games like Mass Effect that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Steam Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Bigger and better
Whether it is for fun, for laughs or for the challenge, modding is what sets PC gaming apart from our closed off friends in the console and mobile gaming worlds. And based on the recent outpouring of support for mods after the concept of paid modding was explored, we are not alone in our love for mods and open platforms that embrace them.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
Introducing Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built kicks-ass. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2015 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
