Report article RSS Feed October Update #1

As we gear up for the second release of Mass Effect: Unification, we showcase the latest elements we have fixed.

Posted by THEWULFMAN on Oct 14th, 2013

The darkness can not be breached.

Soon we'll be releasing Mass Effect: Unification 1.1 (r2) but before we do that we have a few things to finish up. In the meantime, let's show you some of the stuff we've been working on.

The Systems Alliance has been redone so many times I'm beginning to lose count, and I know for a fact we're not done with it.

My instructions were simple when I took over the development of the Alliance's graphical design, make it so each of the classes were easily distinguished from eachother. I wanted to recreate the visual style of the Alliance Marines in Mass Effect 3 at the same time. My solution was to add class specific markings as you all know. The Soldier would remain untouched while the Infiltrator (green), Adept (cyan), Engineer (gold), Sentinel (purple), and Vanguard (red) got distinctive visual markings.

Unfortunately I was very unhappy with the end result, as were quite a lot of our fans. So without further ado, I present my redesigned Alliance Marine textures. Only the Soldier remained the same.

Infiltrators now have map-type specific camo. For instance on Kamino the camo will be a grey urban design, and on Dagobah they have a green and brown jungle camo.


Alliance Vanguard
Redone Alliance Textures - Vanguard


Alliance Sentinel
Redone Alliance Textures - Sentinel


Alliance Adept
Redone Alliance Textures - Adept


Alliance Engineer
Redone Alliance Textures - Engineer


Alliance Infiltrator (Desert)
Redone Alliance Textures - Desert Infiltrator


Alliance Infiltrator (Snow)
Redone Alliance Textures - Snow Infiltrator


Alliance Infiltrator (Jungle)
Redone Alliance Textures - Jungle Infiltrator


Alliance Infiltrator (Urban)
Redone Alliance Textures - Urban Infiltrator


And to wrap it off, Marth fixed the hex shields on Virmire. Also note the glowing elements on the Geth Pulse Rifle.

Redone Hex Shield

We hope you enjoy these recent changes as much as we do. If not, please leave a respect suggestion of what you think could be changed and if we agree with you and it is within our ability to do so, it shall be done.

You find us someone capable of making turians and asari, and we'll add them. Right now I don't have the skill to do it. I plan on making an asari model in the future, though.

That being said, only humans will be in the Systems Alliance team.

Nop indeed. Only the bodysuit texture was adjusted on it, but it's the same as you see on all of these most recent screenshots so there's nothing different to showcase on the Soldier that you haven't seen before.

Overall, a good batch of changes.

Color schemes are no longer so out-of-place, still a little too vivid for me. Dim the colors a bit, maybe throw a thin layer of grime on top, make it look like they've seen action.

Might also want to do something about the teal/cyan on the adept.

ALL of them? Dl.dropboxusercontent.com

Try to be more specific about what you don't like, why you don't like them, etc.

I'm going to adjust the Adept and Sentinel, but the Engineer and Vanguard stay the same. These colors are far from uncanon. Matter of fact these colors would be way brighter and still be canon.

Any specific release date yet?
And also why is the dedicated server password locked?

Release date is under the mod's title. ;)

As for the dedicated server, we are currently testing multiplayer with the patch; the server is locked so non-testers don't try to join and end up crashing.
