About this mod

A Coalesced mod/guide for wearing Vasir's armor from LOTSB.

Requirements
Permissions and credits
Requires: Mass Effect 2, Lair of the Shadow Broker DLC, Notepad++ (or an equivalent program), ME2 INI Fixer



How To Install:


0. Install ME2 & LOTSB DLC. BACK UP YOUR COALESCED.INI!

1. (The Short Way) Replace your Coalesced.ini in ""BioGame/Config/PC/Cooked" with the one provided ME2CustomCoalesced.zip. FYI the provided coalesced will also rebind all interact functions to the "E" key.

1. (The Longer, Safer Way) Open your Coalesced.ini with Notepad++ or an equivalent program. Under the header [SFXGame.SFXPawn_Player] copy/paste the following:

Under the header [Engine.PackagesToAlwaysCook] add the following:

Under the header [Engine.StartupPackages] add the following:

2. Download and run the ME2 INI Fixer to fix your Coalesced file.

3. Install any texture-based mods you like (ALOT, etc.)

4. Locate the file BioD_Exp1Lvl2_420Death.pcc in "BioGame/DLC/DLC_EXP_Part01/CookedPC" and copy/paste it into "BioGame/CookedPC". Do this AFTER you install any texture mods.

Go to your armory and Vasir's armor should be there.

(Optional) Customizing Armor Stats: As a baseline, I have set Vasir's armor to provide overall boosts to shields, ammo capacity, power damage and melee damage, and should be balanced overall alongside DLC armor. However if you wish, you can edit the armor stats to provide your own bonuses. For example:

TorsoAppearances=(.....,GameEffects=("SFXGame.ArmorCode1","SFXGame.ArmorCode2",...),...)

Replace the "SFXGame.ArmorCode1", "SFXGame.ArmorCode2" entries with one or multiple of the IDs below to apply new stats:

Mod Compatibility: Using the provided Coalesced.ini will overwrite any Coalesced mods you may have. If you want to use another Coalesced mod, then you will have to manually edit your Coalesced to get Vasir's armor to show up (see above). Should not conflict with DLC mods.

Be mindful of installing ALOT, as copy-pasting BioD_Exp1Lvl2_420Death.pcc around may flag your game as "non-vanilla'" by the ALOT installer. To be safe, install this mod after you install texture mods. If ALOT receives an update, simply delete BioD_Exp1Lvl2_420Death.pcc inside your "BioGame/CookedPC" folder, reinstall ALOT, and then copy/pase BioD_Exp1Lvl2_420Death.pcc again.


Known Issues: Because this mod manually loads the BioD_Exp1Lvl2_420Death.pcc package, it causes a bug where Vasir's death scene is skipped (you transition straight from boss fight to talking to Liara). It shouldn't adversely impede your progress, however.

Also, the game tends to freeze/go to black screen during squad selection before your assault on the Shadow Broker's base. Fortunately, the game saves before squad select screens, so a simple game restart should allow you to continue.
