From version 3.0 :

Before version 3.0 :


Regarding the tests I made and users feedback, it is compatible with :

Compatibility with JAM will be fixed in version 3.0.2.

I use cloned assets so other mods affecting Default FemShep can be applied on it, as long as the following features are not replaced :
  • renegade scars textures
  • Default FemShep Hair Mesh
  • Default FemShep Head Mesh

(The current version is a DLC mod, but it will change in further versions to avoid mods incompatibilities)


Please read 'Installation.pdf' or ReadMe.txt included in each version for details.

  • New complexions and Makeup styles
  • Tattoos
  • Pathfinder armor
  • Model Rig/Skin
  • Compacted TFC (sorry about the huge file, I forgot to compact it)

  • Installer face code + configuration save
  • New hair styles
  • Auto change the hair style depending on the casual outfit or the armor Shepard wears
  • Bloody nose and tears masks
  • Neck seam override & fix it on the vanilla game too => seams are still visible because of the lighting on UV seams in Unreal Engine. I will try to correct it but don't know if it is possible.
  • Add the mod to Mass effect 2 and Mass effect 1.
  • Update the tutorial : material edition to change eye, hair and skin color + how to deal with 3dsmax to export a skinned mesh with its normals and import it in UDK using the FBX format, clone assets.
  • New casual outfits.
  • Add TIM eyes.
  • Create a video tutorial to install the mod.
  • Add cloth simulation and physic on hair. unfortunatly not possible, but I will try to edit the skeletons to add cloth and hair animations.
