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 :)

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 :)

Gah, I'm having an issue before I even start - trying to install the .mods, and keep getting "Error occurred: export is not correct class or name". Asari.mod installed ok, but Anderson, Ash and AshArmor all threw up this issue so I figured I'd come and report it.

I'm installing on a fresh install of ME, with the latest ME1Explorer (I tried with the version I already had, got this error, thought that might be it and reinstalled, but nope.)

Hmm, so I repacked one of the .mods that wasn't working from the .tpf, and now it seems to be installing quite happily. Will do this for the rest of them and report back if anything else goes wrong :P

Be careful with .mods the are a real pain with ME1 not as simple as ME3. Rebuilding .mods is fine(that's why I included the tpfs) however, there are a few .mods that contain fixes to remove graphical glitches and if you rebuild those without applying the same fixes manually those glitches (black textures, glitched normal maps, and extremely low lods). They will show up again and I really dont want to troubleshoot that. So here are some pre-troubleshooting tips:

1)Make sure you are using the latest version of ME3Explorer through svn not the sourceforge version

2)Make sure you have created a fresh version of the file tree

3)Install each .mod 2 to 3 times, that's what I did to make sure the changes took in all scenes( think of scenes directly as .sfm files in the cooked pc folder) ME1 uses multiple scenes to store the same textures which is a huge waste of space and allows for MEExplorer so fail replaceing small percentages which can cause glitches.

4)Be prepared to spend 5-6 hours doing this then testing the game for glitches this if you are trying to build the entire mod (that's how long it took once I had everything ready to start installing.

5) go here Me3explorer.freeforums.org for support with .mods as I will not because it would be a full time job I built the installer so people wouldn't have to go through what I did. Though I utterly appreciate and am grateful for MEExplorer it is not easy or particularly user friendly and takes some serious familiarizing and patience to use effectively.

6)Good luck !

Thanks for the advice :) I'm well aware of how much of a pain .mods are, I'd just never seen that particular error before! Still repacking and installing right now, and when I'm done with that I'm going to install a couple more times before I play. Unfortunately though, short of spending 10+ minutes staring at a black screen each time I load the game, this is the only way I can install most of your mod and still use all of mine at the same time :P

Also, I don't suppose you have a link to your splash screen anywhere? It isn't included in the .mod version and I really want to use it :P

Sure I'll upload when I get home, in the meantime you could save the image from this site, it's identical except it mentions the mod where as the splash just says Mass Effect.

I just hope everything works, it's so hard to build something on one PC and have it work on all pc's. Every release it seems there is something to fix so please let me know any issues with graphical glitches or subtitles. Thankss as always for the patience and support :)

Uploading in process...torrent is already ready the installer is now 7 parts instead of 9, not really sure how but building this version took less space, must be some improvements to ME3Explorer since last year :) the change list is in the detailed description of the torrent download. Enjoy :)

Parts 1-7, .mods, and .tpfs to come in the next 24 hours it's just taking forever to upload all of these files.

I posted a link to the old thread in the new thread, the old forum is read-only so I can't link from there unfortunately. Have downloaded it and am seeding it for a while so folks can get it off the torrent. Played it for a short bit, looks great. :-)

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…
