About this mod

A small mod that changes all ME3 cabin music to various tracks from ME1 and ME2. Now player-controllable via a new GUI.

Permissions and credits

Better Cabin Music (BCM) is a small mod for Mass Effect 3 that replaces the vanilla cabin music with themes from ME1 and ME2.

Version 2.0 is a full revamp of the mod from the ground up and implements the following changes:

  • BCM v2.0 is now a DLC mod
  • Music track quantity increased from 7 to 10, totaling 60 minutes of cabin music
  • Tracks are implemented as playlists that contain more than one song
  • Each track is custom-mixed using music from ME1 and ME2's soundtracks and cutscenes, along with less familiar versions in the game files
  • Playlists are selected via a shiny, new GUI that includes 10 custom textures
  • Enjoy the highly-visible easter egg

Please note that BCM contains my preferred music. Music is highly-subjective and you may or may not share similar tastes. I will not release customized versions of this mod for other users; I will also not grant permission for others to release altered versions of my files. If you prefer different cabin music, feel free to replace the tracks on your own, but I cannot be of assistance.

Veteran users of my mods know that I include ample documentation in every download. This documentation will answer 99% of user questions, as long as you read it. Be aware that reading this description is not a substitute for reading the supplied documentation. Key requirements are listed below to help you decide if you want to download the mod.

  • Replacer. BCM is a music replacer. You will not be able to access the vanilla cabin music when using this mod.
  • English. BCM is made for English localizations, only. If you use another localization, I cannot guarantee functionality, nor can I provide technical support. Do not ask.
  • DLL Patcher. BCM requires use of a DLL Patcher so ME3 can load new DLC. If you have DLC mods installed, then you already have this patcher. If not, then it must be downloaded and installed, separately. See the Install Guide for details.

All users of BCM v2.0 should pay close attention to the "Mechanics" section in the Install Guide. This explains how BCM's radio compares to its vanilla counterpart and will avoid confusion. The mod may be installed at any time during your playthrough.

BCM is a small mod that is compatible with the majority of other mods for ME3. A couple of quick comments:

  • For users of my other mods, BCM requires no additional compatibility patches.
  • BCM is explicitly compatible with Expanded Galaxy Mod (EGM), but requires one custom EGM setting. See the Install Guide for details.

Users should finish reading about compatibility, conflicts, and localizations in relation to my mods, here. Modders interested in creating patches or translations for BCM should refer to the ThaneMOD website.
