About this mod

A retexture of the Colossus armor with a darker shade of red. Goes well with the Spectre gear.

Requirements
Permissions and credits
This is a simple retexture of the Colossus armor (L/M/H versions, human only) with a darker shade of red. There's also an optional .upk file that changes the helmet's colors too so that it matches the armor.

Installation:
1) Backup your game files. Afaik it's really important when modding ME so I highly recommend you to copy your '\Binaries', '\BioGame' and '\DLC' folders somewhere. This mod in particular, when fully installed, should alter following files:
..\BioGame\CookedPC\Packages\GameObjects\Characters\Humanoids\HumanFemale\BIOG_HMF_ARM_HVY_R.upk
..\BioGame\CookedPC\Packages\GameObjects\Characters\Humanoids\HumanFemale\BIOG_HMF_ARM_LGT_R.upk
..\BioGame\CookedPC\Packages\GameObjects\Characters\Humanoids\HumanFemale\BIOG_HMF_ARM_MED_R.upk
..\BioGame\CookedPC\Packages\GameObjects\Characters\Humanoids\HumanMale\BIOG_HMM_ARM_HVY_R.upk
..\BioGame\CookedPC\Packages\GameObjects\Characters\Humanoids\HumanMale\BIOG_HMM_ARM_LGT_R.upk
..\BioGame\CookedPC\Packages\GameObjects\Characters\Humanoids\HumanMale\BIOG_HMM_ARM_MED_R.upk
..\BioGame\CookedPC\Packages\GameObjects\Characters\Humanoids\HumanMale\BIOG_HMM_HGR_HVY_R.upk
..\BioGame\CookedPC\Maps\STA\DSG\BIOA_STA60_06_DSG.SFM

so if you don't want to backup the whole '\BioGame' folder, copy these files at least before continuing. 

2) (Optional) The helmet's textures can be installed by simply dropping the '\CookedPC' folder into the game's '\BioGame' folder then overwriting the .upk file.

3) Main textures are inside the .tpf file and can be installed with either ALOT Installer, TexMod or ME3Explorer. I prefer ME3Explorer, so if you don't know how to use it, go check out ME3Explorer Wiki - it explains the full installation process really well.
My only tip is that you absolutely should install the textures at least 2-3 times or there'll be glitches.
