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
The full version with latest updates as of 06/02/14
