About this mod

Makes Collector model playable.

Permissions and credits

Mod to play as Collector in Mass Effect 2. In essence you will be wearing the mesh as an armor(Kestrel armor stats).


RCW ME2 ModManager v0.3(


1) Backup your Coalesced.ini!!(e.g. C:\Program Files\Mass Effect 2\BioGame\Config\PC\Cooked\Coalesced.ini)
2) Unzip the archive in the mods folder of ME2 ModManager.
3) Start ME2 ModManager.
4) In the left pane Select play_as_collector and press '1 Click Apply+Save+Launch'. If you play with texmod then I would recommend to press 
    'Or ...Apply and Save As'
5) Start or load a game.
6) Press F12 to bring up the armor menu as an overlay.
7) Play with the sliders until the armor shows up.
8) The head won't show, instead of it some earrings will appear, ignore it and set all sliders to be nameless (with no description). This is done because of 
    helmet bonuses.
9) Click apply, then exit to resume the game.

To change key binding
Edit this line:

+Bindings=( Name="F12" 

Change F12 to whatever you wanna use.

Known Issues

Going to another zone will reset to default armor, so you have to reload the mod again. Just use the top slider then click apply.
Using F12 to bring the menu up changes the current map to one on Normandy's Deck 1(Captain's Cabin), because armor locker in which armor can be found is located there, and because streaming level is on Normandy ( I might look into fixing it when I get some time). So basically, you are forced to see Normandy map wherever you go, the moment you press F12. Pressing "Shift" key however, points you in the right direction during your mission.
