RELEASED: March 16th, 2017
First and foremost, thank you so much for taking the time to download and install the sixth release of Mass Effect: Unification! We've got a lot in store for you in this update and we're sure you'll love it. R6 adds many new features including:

In case you're not familiar at all with the mod, Mass Effect: Unification is a total-conversion mod for Star Wars Battlefront II that adds the Mass Effect era to Instant Action. As of this release, you can fight as the Systems Alliance, the Heretic Geth, the Collectors, or the Evolved Geth on six new custom maps, all of the stock maps, and all maps from the Sol Map Pack.
Please see the changelog for the complete list of changes.
- 6 new Mass Effect maps: Eden Prime, Virmire, the Prothean Skyway, Europa, Aeia, and Noveria
- Support for all stock land maps
- Support for all maps from the Sol Map Pack
- External support for a_speck_of_dust's Lotashi Z: X Province (map must be installed)
- 4 new factions accumulating 25 new unit classes
- 9 new hero classes
- Significantly improved game modes, including Conquest, 1-Flag CTF, and 2-Flag CTF
- 1 new game mode: Siege mode
- Authentic sound effects and music accurate to the Mass Effect franchise
- A massive amount of specially hand-crafted assets specifically tailored for this mod
- An external app that the player can use to tune various in-game parameters such as desired faction combination, HUD/shell style, gameplay difficulty, Shepard class, and more
- Single-player matches on all maps have random side variations and random hero classes whereas multi-player matches have a preset variation and hero class (which is specific per map).
- All maps support some combination of Conquest, 1-Flag CTF, 2-Flag CTF, and Team Deathmatch. Most maps with a large number of command posts (typically four or more) support Siege mode.
- All custom Mass Effect maps will show up in pink-colored text in the Instant Action roster.
- A new save profile called “MEU-Newcomer” is installed along with the mod; this profile is configured to enhance your playing experience with recommended game, audio, and control settings. While using the MEU-Newcomer profile obviously isn’t required, it’s most certainly recommended.
- This mod adds 50 missions to the game's runtime heap with Lotashi Z installed, or 49 missions without.

In summer of 2010, I played the demo for Mass Effect 2 after seeing it on Steam – I immediately then ran out and obtained a copy of Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2 for the PC (because console shooters are dumb). After completing the first game, I thought to myself, "Huh, certainly there must be a Mass Effect mod for Star Wars Battlefront II!" After failing to find such a mod, I completed my first map that I had been working on since February of that same year; I started working on the Sol Map Pack, released the pilot map, and in May of 2011, I started building the gargantuan project we all love and know as “Mass Effect: Unification.”
