Description:
=================


One of the things that always bugged me about Mass Effect 2, and later on, Mass Effect 3; was that Oriana looks nothing like Miranda's twin. Thanks to Project Variety by Scottina123, users can get Oriana to look like Miranda if desire so. However, Mass Effect 2 still is lacking the option or mod for it, so I decided to finally fix that.

Thanks to the latest version of the Mass Effect modding tools finally allowing support for the previous games I created what I consider a small lore-friendly mod that changes Oriana's face into Miranda's, so they actually look like twins.

NEW! Version 3.1 is out now after a few users requested for a more unique look to Oriana. Thanks to talented texture artist Ellise, you can now choose to install her Miranda textures for Oriana. Miranda herself will remain unaffected from your selection. You can check the gallery to see both options in play.

Details:
=================


This mod REQUIRES to be installed with the latest Mass Effect Mod Manager version by Mgamerz. Make sure you let it update to the latest build after installation, in order to make sure that alternate files are correctly installed.

The mod is in DLC form, so its installation is as simple as drag and drop the .7z file into the Mod Manager and let it work its magic. A prompt will ask you to choose between vanilla Miranda textures or those by Ellise. For reference, use the screenshots hosted here, on the mod page. Each indicates which option is.

The mod has a very low mount priority, meaning that I shouldn't conflict with other mods out there. However, it only changes a file regarding Miranda's Loyalty mission. As far as I know, no mod changes it as of today.

Recommended mods:

In order to get the best visual experience and quality, I highly recommend using ALOT for ME2, by CreeperLava. My mod is fully compatible with it and I include 2 extra screenshots showing it with ALOT installed. Remember that content mods must be always installed BEFORE ALOT.



=================
Un-Installation:
=================


Use the Mod Manager to remove the mod. Savegames aren't dependant of it, so it can be safely removed and/or added at any point during your game. Just remember ALOT's instructions if you are also using that mod.


=================
Known Issues:
=================


None. The mod simply changes Oriana's face structure and textures. Miranda is not modified in any way with this mod.

Thanks to MGamerz and the ME3TweaksFork developers for actively working on the modding tools for the trilogy, as well as for all the help offered on the Discord server.

Thanks to Scottina123, who has patiently helped me through my first steps into modding in the Mass Effect world. Honestly, if it would not be for him, this mod would not exist.

Thanks to Ellise for allowing her wonderful younger Miranda textures to be part of this mod as an alternate option for Oriana.

Special thanks to rondeeno, who made sure my moddesc file was correct in order for users to select texture options.
