DLC Timings Mod delays most of the former DLC content of Mass Effect 2 through different methods.

  • Normandy Crash Site DLC no longer unlocks immediately after getting the Normandy, but after playing one main mission, helping with the flow of the story and to allow Shepard to be seen and recognized which allows Hackett to contact the player.
  • Lair of the Shadow Broker doesn't automatically unlock after Horizon; but only after you have met Liara and helped her through her quests on Illium first, which are a build up for the DLC. Once you are done, the email will be delivered and upon reading it, the option to start the DLC will unlock with her.
  • Overlord can optionally be delayed to be triggered after Horizon. It REQUIRES acquiring the Hammerhead beforehand, which means playing through the first Firewalker quest (Rosalie Lost). This can be done before Horizon, but the trigger for Overlord won't happen after that. NEW 1.1: Additionally, there is a new option that JUST REQUIRES acquiring the Hammerhead for the DLC to trigger.
  • Arrival can optionally be delayed at different times. Options include triggering the message from Hackett after finishing the Collector Ship, the Derelict Reaper or, as a bridge to Mass Effect 3 which triggers after BOTH the Suicide Mission and Lair of the Shadow Broker are dealt with. If using Trigger Buttons only the vanilla option will be available to be chosen, so make sure to install that mod first. Else, neither mod will work as intended.


Installation


This mod REQUIRES to be installed with the latest ME3Tweaks Mod Manager version by Mgamerz. 7.0+ is REQUIRED. Make sure you let it update to the latest build after installation, in order to make sure the mod can be correctly installed. It is recommended to install over a vanilla NON textured game.

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 show indicating if you want to delay Overlord and Arrival, showing its different options. Only option can be chosen per DLC and it MUST be done before you visit the Normandy for the first time. The mod cannot retroactively remove quests from your journal which you might have acquired already.


Un-Installation


Use the Mod Manager to remove the mod. Savegames aren't dependent of it, so it can be safely removed and/or added at any point during your game. However, DLCs that were delayed will be immediately unlocked and reinstallation will not make them disappear unless loading a previous save.



Known Issues

None. If you find anything, please attach a mod manager diagnostic as show on the pinned comment, as well as the most detailed description you can of your problem.

Other mods by me


Conrad Verner Remembers (ME2LE) BUG FIX: this mod solves the Conrad Verner bug in which the incorrect stage is set, and he always believes you pointed a gun at him on Mass Effect 1. Since a fix on Mass Effect 1 is not implemented yet, a special, in-universe mechanic has been introduced to fix the import before meeting Conrad.
Cerberus Ladies Wear Cerberus (ME2LE): this mod restores the correct uniforms to most of the female Cerberus crew members of the Normandy that Bioware never patched. It also includes the option to give Kelly her hair from the original Mass Effect 2.
Expanded Shepard Armory (ME2LE): this mod unlocks helmetless versions of the official DLC armors to players who wish to use them and see their Shepard's faces; as well as adds additional armors and casual outfits ported from Mass Effect 1, 3 and Andromeda.
Ronald Taylor's Fate Fix (ME2LE) BUG FIX: this mod properly records the choice done with Jacob's father on his loyalty mission. Although the bug is noticeable if you pay close attention to one specific line in Mass Effect 2; it is especially a noticeable BUG in Mass Effect 3. Fixing it in 2 will ensure both Shepard and Jacob remember what they chose.
Missing Codex Restored (ME2LE) BUGFIX: this mod restores the Codex entries for Thermal Clips, Grenade Launcher and Drell. The mod restores them at their appropriate place. They are fully voiced.
Citadel Asari Hands (BUGFIX) ME2LE: this mod fixes some asari having human hands on the Citadel, as well as some extra corrections to props placement around the levels. The mod for now does not include Thane's loyalty's mission as that a whole different level of mess.
Sheploo Appearance Consistency Project: this mod makes Sheploo consistent with Mass Effect 1 and 3 on 2. For some reason in 2 he has a painted ORANGE diffuse texture that does not properly tint with any outfit. This mod restores the tintable, unpainted textures from Mass Effect 1, which will make his skintone match with any outfit as well as restores the correct opacity of his eyelashes.
Overlord Morality Fix: in vanilla, Overlord DLC does not grant a single morality point through its entirety. With this mod, choosing the fate of David Archer on Overlord now grants 30 morality points. Paragon or Renegade depends on the appropriate option chosen.
Oriana looks like Miranda's Twin (ME2LE): this small lore-friendly mod changes Oriana's face into Miranda's, so they actually look like twins. Mass Effect 2 version.
Oriana looks like Miranda's Twin (ME3LE): this small lore-friendly mod changes Oriana's face into Miranda's, so they actually look like twins. Mass Effect 3 version.
More Hair for Femshep (ME1LE): brings to the Legendary Edition Sims 4 Hairs created by Anto and originally ported by Kittentails to the original Mass Effect 3. Players who want to use them will need to use the Trilogy Savegame Editor to change their Shepard's hair.
