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 just finished updating the mod last night, crash a Feros is gone, but I am checking as many areas as possible before release. The crash was due to the geth transport textures, they were 8192*2048 same pixels as a 4096x4096 texture but the engine couldn't handle the width. Any way I bumped them down to 4096*1024 and the crash is gone.

So after some testing I will upload. Hopefully this weekend.

Waiting impatiently ;-) Something pushed me to Ferros first and I'm also stuck and don't want to revert to the original, as your mod is breathtaking. And, having not played ME before it really puts the game in the current time and helps immersion a lot! Thanks again :)

The installer says "please insert disk 2", but I don't get it, what disk is it talking about? I have the steam version of Mass Effect, I don't have any disks. The installer is only one file as well. Someone help please?

Did you download this via torrent? If you did, there should be an exe file and then 7 files along with it when you unpackage the archive. If you don't have that then you don't have a complete download.

Disk mean part so get all parts and follow the readme, and you will never see an insert disk error from the installer.

Leave the poor guy alone and let him work on the mod, and have a life. He cant hold your hand through everything...Scrolling through the comments can result in lots of useful information..try doing it before posting.

Obviously you don't see the irony of your useless comment or you wouldn't have posted it. Unless of course your intention was to make a fool of yourself.

I'm not going to hold your hand and explain it to you though.

Thanks for your work on the mod. It really makes the game look amazing.

I'm having a crashing problem that restarting the game and my computer isn't fixing. When Saren is resurrected by Sovereign at the Citadel, a cutscene is played showing his transformation. At the end of that cutscene, right as Shephard pulls out his gun and I have control of his movement, my game crashes with the error:

"Couldn't load shader file 'MaterialTemplate'."

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

Nevermind. I just beat the game without the mod. Thanks again for your work!

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…
