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 :)

I don't know if I'm a total idiot or the mod is just trolling me...
After downloading all 7 parts, unzipping and then running the installer I get an error who tells me that the installer can't find the 3th part. Strange is that the exe and part 2 are named "MEUITM" and "MEUITM.2" but the other parts a named "ME1UITM.x" ... I downloaded part 1 and 2 from moddb but the other 5 part from Gamefront because it is faster. Don't know if the error is the diffrent mirrors or I'm just a air head.

sounds like the downloads are incomplete should be MEUITM.exe and then MEUITM.2-7 no x. I'm guessing x means incomplete.

no i mean x = 3,4,5,6,7 (as the number of the part), english is not my main language so sorry.
I got all 7 parts but 3-7 are named diffrend I tried to just rename 3-7 but then it tells me someting about "decompression error"

Judging from the screenshots, it looks like the dates are from 2 different version only first 2 parts of which are this one which is December 2014. The rest are from the july 2013 upload (very old).

I would use only the parts direct from Moddb, the torrent, or the direct link from the Nexus at this point to make sure you are getting the correct versions. Parts from two different versions even though they are each 7 parts cannot be combined the installer will simply fail because the hashes won't match.

Looks like the Gamefront links are the old version.

Just stopping by to once again say thank you!

I am enjoying another play through of ME1 with this mod and it is fantastic!

P.S. Kaidan's teeth look perfect now, thank you for whitening them! It totally improved an important element of the game for me that I tend to focus on a lot, so thanks! Have a great Christmas/New Year! :D

This mod on 360 or PS3 is absolutely not possible due to hardware limitations of those systems.

Sorry I wasn't aware of this issue :/

The shaders are in xxxx\Mass Effect\Engine\Shaders the file names are: BranchingPCFCommon.usf

I wasn't aware of 3D fixed dynamic shadows but to undo the shader changes the mod adds just replace these 3 files with the 3D fixed shaders.

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…
