Want to change that pajamas you are forced to use on Skyhold ? Give hair to Solas ? Make Leliana red headead again ? Here we discuss what we know so far and we even have a tool to view the game assets files (CAS) and the game save files (DAS), courtesy of Warranty Voider (ME3 modding tools) and Ehamloptiran (Skyrim, Bioshock modding tools), wogoodes  and others who did many mods for games. Dan and Zenthar have done the latest mod manager and mod tools, using the code from Eham and Voider.

The goal is to make a Creation Kit like Skyrim's to allow modders to change game assests. Will we get there ? Stay tuned. For now the tools  we have are just viewing and exporting, not  importing  or modding. import on version 37!! But Ehamloptiran is working on a texture and mesh replacer tool with some success and he has just  released a texture import as a standalone beta tool for experienced modders on 12/15. Modders Silvist and Kiitosu were gracious enough to offer a texture for the dreaded skyhold jammies. Red for female quizzy done by Silvist, white and black for male quizzy done by Kiitosu.

May 5th 2015 Update: Mods can change textures, assets and mesh can be edited, as long as the new mesh has the same number of vertices, rigged in the same order (painful I know!!!). In plain english this means hair mods are possible and we have already 2 available!!! But they are very hard work for modders, they basically have to do it moving each little strand of hair, one at a time. Adela and Skaramoosh were brave enough to do it and they have hair mods available for download at our forum. No one else has had the time and patience to mod any other mesh but in theory you could see new weapons and armor mods soon. We can also delete mesh - make solas hat at halamshiral disappear, or take Blackwall's beard off. Alas we can't ADD mesh yet so new hair for Solas or otherm ore involved mesh modding is still impossible.

NOTE: This is a tool made by fans. Bioware is not involved in any way except from making the game.

5/8/15 - If you want to use mods with the DLC and Black Emporium, you need to use the new Mod Manager v 0.51 that can be downloaded at our forum

1/20/15 - After pach 3 from Bioware people need a new version of mod manager (use DAIModmanagerV2.rar here on Nexxus)
(or here while it uploads to Nexxus)

The tool is kept on SVN and changes often so we won't be hosting it here on Nexxus. You can find the latest version here
