Welcome Mass effect 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 (Normandy Citadel and Feros covered so far), Kaidan, Tali, Garrus, Wrex, Liara, Saren, Benezia, Udina, Council, Anderson, Joker, Chakwas, Geth, Colonists, Scientists, Keepers, Normandy, Mako, many NPC clothings, Geth ship, volus, hanar, elcor, Salarians, Batarians some armors, default character armors including N7 armor (of characters re-textured) and various environmental textures.

This was all achieved by texture editing (up-scaling, re-painting, adding details, adding texture, adding pattern, and using that to rebuild spec maps, spec power maps, and normal maps). Then once all the details are added I load up the Character models into Photoshop and paint away texture seams as best as possible. I added a higher resolution film grain for crisper picture with film grain one.

This mod also introduces soft shadow shaders by daemonjax, tweaked by myself and tweaked bioengine.ini settings for texture streaming and soft shadow setting by me and other various quality improvements by Aquadran all done behind the scenes by the installer ro manually in MEM for advanced users. Lastly I have included a ReShade preset that I customized specifically for MEUITM to add next gen lighting and effects as best as possible without betraying the original feel of the game while adding some effects to mimic visual styles seen in Unreal Engine 4.

Requests are always welcome :)


Mod Update:

This mod is free and always will be. Over the years I have had a few offers for donations and I have 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 would be sincerely grateful :)

So I have a fresh install of ME with the fallen skies DLC.
I ran the game once before quitting and running MassEffectModder.exe
It reaches about 78% before returning a Microsoft. Net unhandled exception error.
It also mentions the index was out of range.
I don't suppose anyone ran into this issue with the anniversary edition 2018 before?

So I reinstalled the vanilla ME with the fallen skies DLC.
I downloaded another instance of the meuitm mod but cut the network connection so it wouldn't update.
The installer warned me that it couldn't update and I asked it to run anyway.
It ran through and finished with no .net issues and I was able to run Mass Effect fine with it.
Looking good so far.

Hey, I have installed the mod and the game starts fine. But all the people look like Black thinks. I mean ther armor is just Black so are ther faces- It's not like the bug wher they are a bunch of Black boxes. Any Idea what I can do?

This usually happens if another mod or DLC is installed after MEUITM or if the game reverts to vanilla via auto game updates These auto updates need to be disabled manually in Steam or Origin.

The solution is to delete Mass Effect and start from scratch following the install order in the readme/install video. All DLC then mods that aren't MEUITM/ALOT and the install MEUITM/ALOT mods.

I'm having some issues with this mod on the Origin version of the game. My ME decided it'd be fun to reset the textures to default in the middle of my playthrough (everything worked just fine last week)

I reinstalled the game, reinstalled MEUITM, but now every time I try to open the game with MEUITM installed, the game never starts. When I close Origin, something called "activation ui" pops up in Task Manager in the background, where I can't do anything with it. Without the mod installed, the game starts up fine. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Hello, try disabling Origin in-game overlay?

This is a very strange issue though, if disabling Origin overlay doesn't work, it may be best to delete everything and start from scratch.

hi! When running the installer, I received the .NET error "Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the appplication will close immediately. Exception of type 'System Exception' was thrown."

What am I missing?

I think this should be fixed now with the MEM auto updates, it was a random stability error. Rebooting my PC got around it for me but after one of the MEM updates, I haven't had to do that anymore I apologize for the delay in response.

Sure, still available here: Nexusmods.com

Just install with MEM or use MEUITM installer in "standard mode" to access MEM.

Click Mass Effect 1
Then click Texture Manager
Then click Mods
Then click Load Mods -browse for mod to install
Then Highlight mod in the list with the mouse and right click to install.

Done thsi particular mod only applies to Heavy Onyx, I haven't completed the set yet as this was a user request I decided to share as is.

Enjoy :)

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…
