Mass Effect Legendary Edition

About this mod

A large-scale immersive overhaul for Mass Effect 1, designed to breathe more life into the world in every way possible.

Permissions and credits
LE1 Diversification Project is a large-scale immersive overhaul of the first Mass Effect game. Its goal is to bring every aspect of the world forward to create a greater sense of asset and population diversity that was not possible in the original release of ME1 due to memory limitations. Here are the core features of this mod:

  • Female Turians have been seamlessly integrated into the entire game, from the Citadel to Noveria to Pinnacle Station and Uncharted Worlds. They will appear in every position across galactic society, from civilians and scientists to C-Sec officers, mercs, and more.
  • The mod increases asset diversity, and "un-cuts" the corners that BioWare took to save on memory, such as only using one outfit per non-human species in any single area, and adding a much greater variety of outfit meshes/tints, faces/hairs, and weapon models.
  • More life is breathed into the world by increasing the number of NPCs in the game and populating areas that are effectively empty in vanilla (such as Dr. Michel's clinic with 0 patients, or Opold's empty shop on Noveria). Additionally, dynamic lighting has been manually improved through many conversations, designed to optimise the lighting within LE's lighting engine rather than the light settings that were designed for the classic edition.
  • Hub populations have been increased/rebalanced to create a more lore-accurate and fair balancing of species and equality of genders across the game. For example, no human women exist in C-Sec in vanilla compared to half of the humans in C-Sec being women in this mod. There is also better racial diversity among humans, and the population of minor species such as Hanar/Elcor/Volus has increased.
  • Cut/unused/bugged content has been restored. (LE1DP is currently the largest dialogue restoration mod at over 400+ restored lines and counting!) but restored content extends to character appearances, cut NPCs, items (such as a Thorian acid mine), and more.
  • Other various miscellaneous improvements have been made such as in-world beautification passes (like adding more ambient decorative objects, corpses, points of interest etc.) or otherwise whatever other changes are possible to make the world feel more lived-in and immersive and unifying the trilogy (such as the ME2/3 door holograms, or Alliance ships).

This mod is still in active development but has now fully covered the main story areas. These are Eden Prime, The Citadel, Therum, Feros, Noveria, Virmire, Ilos, and the Endgame/Epilogue. There are also completed overhauls for the Freighter missions, as well as initial minor edits to Uncharted Worlds.

Normandy and Uncharted Worlds/Bring Down the Sky overhauls are coming soon.

I'm more than happy to listen to ideas and suggestions, though please understand that certain things will be unfeasible or conflict with my vision for the project, and may not be included. I'm aiming to have this mod completed in 2024.

For LE2, I highly recommend using Fate of Executor Pallin, a continuity bridge mod developed in collaboration with Team Pyjak that ensures Pallin's fate in this mod is reflected in Mass Effect 2, as well as in either LE3 Diversification Project or Project Variety.

  • Female Turians have been added throughout the game, in every place where male Turians can be found. Examples include C-Sec officers, citizens, diplomats, ERCS guards, businesswomen, scientists at Peak 15, thugs/assassins on the Citadel, mercenaries and more. There is also a female Turian consort acolyte, as well as dancers in Chora's Den. As of now - two Female Turians are voiced. One can be found in the Citadel Tower, another in the Med Bay at Peak 15 on Noveria.
  • Door Consistency Overhaul: All doors have been updated with new hologram graphics that are consistent with how door buttons look in ME2/3. Additionally, the Citadel doors have had their animations and sound effects updated to be consistent as well. Elevator buttons have also been replaced with a new hologram button, and the elevator buttons on Ilos have been given a unique Prothean-esque design.
  • More NPCs added, and all NPCs given unique appearances. There are now a greater variety of faces, hairstyles, outfits (+ tints) and animations.
  • BioWare backported the Asari textures used in ME2/3, which caused all the Asari in ME1 to look different (the only one they corrected was the Asari councillor). To compensate, I've manually restored the appearances of all the plot-based Asari, and focused on backporting Asari appearances from LE2/3 to the ambient Asari to give them appearances better tailored to these textures.
  • Many cutscenes have been given cinematic lighting overhauls to improve the visual presentation in the conversion from OT to LE's lighting system. These edits pair really nicely with MELLO and I highly recommend using both mods together to get the best experience, but that isn't a requirement.
  • The global population has been rebalanced, so humans no longer comprise the majority of the population. The number of Asari, Salarian, Turian and Human NPCs are now roughly equal. The population of other species has also been dramatically increased, with many more Hanar, Elcor and Volus, with a few extra Krogan and even a couple of Quarians added. 
  • Hanar, Elcor now have a much greater variety of appearances, instead of all looking identical. Additional Volus appearances have been backported from LE2 and LE3, with a few new extra ones created.
  • Mod Settings have been added thanks to LE1 Community Patch. These are: "Remember Me" (Colonist Only vs For All), Male Consort Acolytes (Human/Turian), Female Turian Chora's Dancers (Enabled or Disabled) and Alliance Ships (ME1 Design vs ME3 Design).
  • LE1DP has several features that have been included in LE1 Community Patch via the mod settings menu. These are things such as fixed NPC appearances like Morlan/Han Olar that were bugged, or the restored M-29 Grizzly in the Noveria Garage. Please note that these options will be forced ON when this mod is installed. They were made optional in LE1 CP due to the strict nature of how that mod fixes bugs, while these fixes/cut content restorations are features of this mod and therefore not designed to be optional.
  • The "Race Against Time" quest will now appear in your journal as soon as you gain command of the Normandy.



  • Citadel Rapid Transit has been redesigned. You can no longer automatically unlock destinations from the beginning (such as the Tower or Chora's Den). A Request Squad Member option has also been added, allowing you to change your party without having to return to the Normandy. A new loading screen when traveling to the Presidium has also been added, and dynamic lighting has been added to the fast travel terminals.
  • Several quests have been moved to their originally intended location (as shown in the files). Chorban and Emily Wong (2nd appearance) have been moved from the Council Tower to the Presidium. Elias Keeler and Charles Saracino/Protestors have been moved from the Wards to the Presidium Embassies.
  • There is now a more logical progression of the Cerberus questline. You can now only unlock Kahoku's missing marines mission after completing Dr Michel's blackmail quest and learning about Banes. The Sparta system on the galaxy map will also be disabled until you have unlocked this mission.
  • C-Sec has been overhauled and now has much better representation. Human women and more asari (previously there were only 2) have been added, and the global C-Sec species balance has been adjusted. Turians still make up the majority of C-Sec however, as per canon. 
  • Weapons from Advanced Weapon Models have been added throughout the Citadel, primarily used by C-Sec guards (examples include the Incisor, Argus, Phaeston and Acolyte).
  • Some NPCs have had their appearances fixed, which have been bugged ever since the original 2007 release. For example, Morlan, whose intended headmorph was left unused and instead he was a Schells clone, and the Banes Blackmailer Krogan was using the Chora's Den Krogan headmorph instead of his intended appearance.
  • Many cinematic conversations have had their dynamic lighting overhauled (or had dynamic lighting added where it wasn't present) to either recapture the look of OT, or simply improve the visual presentation within Legendary Edition's graphics.
  • Added datapads to a few places on the Citadel to replace the computer terminals that could be hacked for UNC plot aquisition. This is to avoid situations where you could end up hacking terminals that are now in use by LE1DP's new NPCs.
  • Diversified the skycars with more colours, so that they're no longer all white.
  • Restored unused female diplomat lines. These lines have been edited for use on a female Turian.
  • Kahoku now has a new animation he uses to better illustrate that he's using a communicator.
  • Since Chorban has been moved, the Keeper in the middle of the room has been moved to one of the side alcoves and given a terminal to work on.
  • The human embassy now has more NPCs, including diplomats and Alliance officers.
  • Added quest marker when Udina is available for a post-mission debrief in the Embassies.

  • C-Sec HQ now has more NPCs, including a meeting at the conference table.
  • Salarian diplomats have been added to the embassies.
  • Restored unused lines for a Volus diplomat to the embassies.
  • Barla Von's Bank now has ATM machines, customers, more furniture and LOKI Mechs guards.

  • Helena Blake has a new outfit by Zeb.
  • The Wards access area is no longer barren and has been populated with NPCs.
  • The Embassy Receptionist's and Emporium Shopkeeper's names will now dynamically change to Saphyria/Delanynder once you ask for their names.
  • Restored 5 previously inaccessible lines from Delanynder's conversation in the Emporium.
  • The human embassy will now be locked when you're grounded.
  • The "Hmm" banter prompts from squadmates have been removed when walking past the Krogan statue & Relay monument on the Presidium. Instead, the unique banter now plays automatically.
  • The Alliance docking bay has been overhauled, with an Alliance Frigate, Kodiak shuttle, and alliance marines/officers/crewmen from the Normandy, and C-Sec officers.
  • Overhauled the outside of the Citadel Control room in C-Sec Academy, replacing the empty white room with a skybox of the nebula, with randomised shuttle/fighter flybys.
  • C-Sec wall holograms added.
  • The trees are now a unique glowing blue instead of being the same as the ones in the Council Chambers.
  • Khalisah Al-Jilani's interview has been expanded with new questions that were previously incredibly hard to unlock. She will also now only appear when Noveria has been completed.
  • Replaced Khalisah's camera mesh with the one from ME3, which actually has a camera on it.

  • Trees in the wards are now purple instead of being the same as the ones in the Council Chambers.
  • Conrad Verner will now appear in a new location each time you meet him. He hasn't gone far, don't worry!
  • The Wards alleyway is no longer barren and has been populated with NPCs. Ambient smoke has been added for a more seedy atmosphere.
  • Chora's Den exterior is no longer barren and has been populated with NPCs. I've also restored 3 unused ambient conversations between a Salarian/Volus in this area.
  • Edited the Chora's Den plaza ambient skycars so that the skycars fly past more often.

  • Turian ERCS guards now have a new visor helmet so you can see their faces (Thanks Munchyfly!)
  • Instead of returning directly to the Normandy when leaving Peak 15, you will instead be returned to Port Hanshan. This is to give you an opportunity to view new content that has been restored when returning.

This can now be chosen after successfully intimidating Jeong. This will also restore ambient comments from various NPCs, as well as comments from Ashley/Kaidan on the Normandy when asking about the previous mission.
  • Diversified all Zhu's Hope colonists with more varied appearances, hairstyles, and clothing, as well as given them 'frontier militia' weapon models such as the Mattock.

  • All the breeding tubes in the Saren's base now have dormant Krogan present inside. Water VFX has also been added to the tanks.
  • Most Krogan have had their helmets removed as well as their heads/armour diversified - no more Wrex clones!

  • Restored squad comments that would usually not play when at the Geth communications tower.
  • Restored an unused line from each squadmate when dealing with the alarms at the base entrance.

  • Rana's personal logs can be read on her computer.

  • Restored unused lines from Joker, Shepard and Ashley/Kaidan when delivering the nuke.
  • Replaced the fake Normandy CIC backdrop at the end of Virmire with the actual Normandy level (this is a particularly noticeable change for ultrawide and 4K users).



  • More of the Normandy CIC is streamed in during the opening cutscene. The galaxy map and CIC crewmen can be seen in the background.
  • The elevator buttons now have a unique Prothean hologram design, instead of using the same design found everywhere else in the game. They also have a unique sound effect.

  • Restored unused squadmate comments about the inactive Geth Armatures.
  • Improved lighting in the cutscene at the Security Terminal.
  • Restored a cut gameplay step where shutting down the security override reactivates the Armatures, as well as deploys Geth reinforcements, which the Armatures will attack. You either have to join in the 3-way combat brawl, reprogram the Armatures (via a nearby terminal if your decryption skill is high enough), or flee to the elevator.
  • Restored a cut quest step in which power must be restored to the door in addition to shutting down the security override. This is in the form of a new puzzle centered around a Prothean generator.
  • The Destiny Ascension commander's subtitle name is now Matriarch Lidanya.
  • Matriarch Lidanya now wears unique armour.

  • Restored cut lines from the Matriarch Lidanya/Navigator via a communicator next to a dead C-Sec officer.
  • Executor Pallin has been added to the cutscene where Sovereign rams a Turian dreadnaught - as part of a coordination with LE3 Diversification Project which restores the concept of Chellick becoming the executor after Pallin's death at the battle of the Citadel. This is also reflected in the LE2 mod Fate of Executor Pallin.
  • The ensign next to Pallin is now a female Turian.
  • Diversified the Krogan in the Citadel tower exterior section.
  • The iconic ME3 Reaper sounds have been added to Sovereign's ambients when fighting up the Citadel tower exterior.
  • The Paragon Epilogue has been overhauled, with the Presidium now appearing in a more lore-accurate destroyed state to reflect the battle
  • The Renegade Epilogue has been overhauled and no longer takes place inside a fake 2D backdrop, but rather inside a lore-accurate destroyed Council Chambers to reflect the battle aftermath.

Special Thanks
Mistyvail for our original conversations and collaboration that led to the inception of this project. We both agreed that porting outfits from Andromeda simply doesn't work very well, as the aesthetic and texture work doesn't blend seamlessly with OT/LE assets. Her subsequent work reshaping Turian outfit/armour meshes has resulted in (in my opinion) the best realization of seamlessly integrated Female Turian NPCs so far, and was the inception of the Diversification Project.

Vegz for being my fellow LE1 modding masochist, and for being the one who cracked how to set up new voiced dialogue in LE1, which has allowed for a wealth of cut content to be restored.

Herobrine24 for providing some pre-made level streaming edits that greatly improve immersion.

Mgamerz, 55tumbl, Kinkojiro, Mistyvail, rondeeno, Knighthawk, Vegz, Khaar and Catachrism, for kindly allowing for compatibility patches with their mods.

The Elcor Hamlet Appreciation Society for their support/guidance throughout the development of this mod.
