-Femshep face shine reduced
-Kaiden teeth whitened, and eyebrows returned to more vanilla look (less bushy)
-Udina's hair mask was misaligned causing odd coloring along the hairline, this is now corrected.
-Cleaned up some NPC clothings (sheen on Asari dress, and the underline of the breasts on the Consort dress/outfit which many NPC's also use, removed the blatant line and replaced it with more subtle shading.

-Fixed crash on Altahe when exiting facility, crash was due to incomplete/corrupt Rachni texture


-Fixed Feros and other crashes due to Gethtranport ship texture being too large.
Mod has been tested on every planet, every elevator, and every main "boss encounter"
no crashes found during testing :)


-Normandy Chair glitch fixed and greater overall stability achieved by using new ME3Explorer and
minimizing duplicate files

character create menu just get through the menu and the armors and faces will look normal in
game, there is currently no fix except for removing mips which causes shimmer

-Many many cosmetic fixes on NPC clothings, drop shadows, misalignments, etc...

Hello there,

I began very basic work on the textures in 2011 when there was only Texmod as a mod tool. As I learned new techniques and tried to improve my early work ME3Explorer came along I'm not sure how long they were working on it, but I would say shortly after ME3 came out at the earliest. So over 2 years now for them. I started following the progress hoping they would make a similar tool for ME1 because Texmod was so glitchy and a resource hog, eventually Saltisgood did just that. I was a tester and we communicated back and forth I would relay bugs along with Fog.gene and other users, we worked out a lot of kinks with Saltisgood's help. Since then programmers like Kfreon have collaborated, added features etc...I bug test the new versions when I can and relay what I find. Lately the focus seems to be on ME3 and people are busy and having a hard time finding time to work on ME1 features, which is ok because it's 98-99% perfect, just the low lod issues causing trouble.

So I do all the texture work myself and build the mod using ME3Explorer myself and I do the majority of bug testing myself, with users letting me know what I missed lol.

Recently though Daemonjax from the Nexus sites sent me a link to a shadow shader he? wrote and though it didn't seem to take Daemonjax long (more than a few days maybe a week) to tweak it into what is now in the mod I had been trying to get similar results for over 2 years using the wrong approach, so I am extremely grateful.

I do this in my free time which sometimes I want to use for less "work" type things but I seem to always come back, it's fun for me because I love the game and it's fun to be able to improve it even if it is only visual.

I started the mod just to see what I could do and if people wanted the same improvements I did and here we are today. It's been very fun, but also a lot of work. Textures themselves are a lot of work in a "painting" sense, but modding a game that was never meant to be modded even with help of great programmers making ME3Explorer, is work. That part (the building and bug testing) isn't fun for me lol but I find seeing the end result and happy people comments/gratitude worth it.

I was inspired by JeanLuc's work on ME2 and the handful of ME1 textures he did I had no Idea you could do that to a game, until that point I have seen most texture overhauls as up-resing and then applying a sharpening or noise filter which really rarely added any quality, his were beautifully painted works of art and I wanted to challenge myself to do something similar.

Required patch: No brows fix extract the file into your Mass Effect folder and say yes to overwrite

Use this if you find your NPC's are missing eyebrows

I have tried it and I enjoy it, though you will need a powerful rig, the game looks quite nice in 4k.

Heck to run any game in full proper 4k. A normal high end gamer wont be able to. You need a monster system.
