Fans of the space saga have already proven their skill in creating modifications, so they did not stand aside in the case of the re-release. With the help of such improvements, you can make the visual component even better, or add new content.
Mass effect Legendary Edition came out quite recently, and modders have already managed to make several improvements aimed at graphics and gameplay aspects.
Judging by the reactions of critics and gamers, the remaster of the space trilogy came out great and did not disappoint the fans. In the reissue of Bioware, textures were updated, the resolution and frame rate increased, as well as work on balance and some details.
Craftsmen started uploading mods to NexusMods with the release of the game, so it’s not surprising that a sufficient number of improvements have already accumulated. Some of them significantly affect the passage of the remaster, and among them we can distinguish 8 best…
Preset with improved colors and lighting
The original first part of Mass Effect was rather drab and visually dull. In the Legendary Edition, this was fixed by adding bright colors, as in the second and third Mass Effect. Despite the good work done by Bioware, the craftsmen were able to make the colors and lighting even better in the Better Colors and Lighting Reshade Preset mod.
This modification changes color grading and light so that the game looks more realistic. The brightness may decrease compared to the reissue, but the overall picture is clearly getting better.
Mod is compatible with three parts and displays all the changes made. These include corrected brightness, improved contrast, saturation of colors and tones, as well as adding glow and light refraction effects. Naturally, with such a modification, the system will be loaded more, so some players will have to sacrifice the loss of 5-10 frames per second.
Change of interface
This modification allows you to switch between a filled and empty interface. The original trilogy still had HUD problems, but by the third installment, the Canadian developers had found the perfect balance. However, players have never had the option to hide all UI elements without mods.
Thanks to this mod, you can make the gameplay more cinematic, but you should be careful, because the amount of health and shields will not be visible after switching. Fortunately, at any moment you can change the interface…
The standard FOV of the original trilogy and Legendary Edition was wide enough, but extremely small in height. This made it look like the camera was attached to Shepard’s back.
With the new Better Camera mod, you can adjust FOV height, adjusting it to fit you. If you turn the slider to the maximum value, the view will increase significantly, but the feeling of dynamics will be lost. Therefore, it is recommended to look for a balanced version at average values.
Same-sex relationships in Mass Effect
The Mass Effect series is known for being romantically involved and dating characters of the same gender as Shepard. In the first part, same-sex romances are not available, although Kaidan, who appeared in Mass Effect 3, became bisexual abruptly.
For those who want to start a relationship with a character of the same gender in the first Mass Effect, this mod has been created. But it should be understood that this function was not provided by the developers, so the progress of the novel may not be correctly transferred to Mass Effect 2.
Another reshader, the influence of which is noticeable from the first seconds after installing the mod. This is a cinematic lighting mod called Perfect Cinematic Lighting.
It would seem that lighting cannot greatly affect the picture, but it is not. Modification significantly improves imagesmaking it more detailed, realistic and dynamic.
Installation of this modification may increase the load on the system, which will make the game run worse. In this regard, it is not recommended to install the mod for those whose computers are suitable only for the minimum system requirements.
An excellent multifunctional Extra Keybinds mod designed for those who play through the keyboard and mouse. With it you can assign keys on actions that were not foreseen by the Canadian developers. For example, you can set separate buttons for interaction, fast run, cover, open magazine, codex, and skill tree. This modification only works in Mass Effect 2…
In addition to the usual key remapping, the improvement adds new functions to the game. These include activating / deactivating fog and glare, as well as changing the FOV and leveling the standard mouse cursor lag.
In the first and third parts, the modification is far from functioning for everyone, because it was created specifically for the second Mass Effect. This improvement is on the must have list.
Since the Legendary Edition contains all three parts of Mass Effect, the choice of a particular game is made in the launcher. On some weak systems, there may be problems with the launch of this software, and in this case, a mod for a custom launcher will come in handy.
It should be understood that a regular program does not work because it requires a huge amount of power, but because of the AVX software kits that are not supported on older processors. The launcher from the modification does not look as good as the standard one, but thanks to it the remaster can at least be launched.
Cheats and utilities
In addition to many technical mods, the craftsmen have made an excellent modification of LEME1 Cheat and Utilities. The software is based on activating console commands by pressing certain keys. By the way, here you can also adjust the FOV for yourself.
The number of cheats and utilities that are in this assembly include increasing experience points, adding credits, pumping squad members, decryption points and influence on the Hero and / or Renegade scores. It is not recommended to use codes for the first pass, otherwise the impression can be spoiled. Otherwise, console commands will come in handy, especially for gaining an advantage over the Reapers, Cerberus and other opponents.
