Mass Effect 3 Modding Guide

Following are the possible moddings I came across during my search for ways to mod ME3. So kudos go to the people who discovered the following modding possibilities. The main purpose of this is to create a single place that anyone can refer easily rather than going through different forums and blogs etc.

Note: I am not responsible for any damage done by the following mods, so use them at your own risk. Also please note, there is a possibility that some of the following mods won't work as expected.

2. Input one of the following IDs into the "Bool" textbox. Then press "Get" button. Tick the box for to set true (romance), untick for false (no romance). Then press "Set".

Set Liara to recognize the romance activities related to LoTSB

   *14169, 6927, 6931, 6815, 7051, 7035 and 7151


Changing the properties of Shepard

Changing the class

1. Open save game editor and then go to the "Raw" tab.

2. Scroll down to "Squad" and click, then click on "Player".

3. To the right, scroll until you see "className".

4. At the end, change your current class to the new class.

Changing Shepards' hair

Add TIMs' eyes to Shepard

1. Open save game editor and then go to the "Raw" tab.

2. Expand "Squad" > "Player" > "Appearance" > "Morph Head" > "Texture Parameters".

3. Open the Texture Parameters list and add following new entries.

  * code:
  * Name: EYE_Diff
  * Value: BIOG_HMM_HED_PROMorph.IllusiveMan.HMM_HED_PROIllusiveman_Eye_Diff
  
  * code:
  * Name: EYE_Spec
  * Value: BIOG_HMM_HED_PROMorph.IllusiveMan.HMM_HED_PROIllusiveman_Eye_Spec

4. Open Vector Parameters and change "EYE_Iris_Colour_Vector" name to "Emis_Color" (without the quotes) and then change the colour values, using this.

5. 3rd box down you enter your RGB values, i.e; "111,53,26" (Auburn) into the 'RGB colour:(255-based) -> RGB colour:(Percent-based)' input field. This will give the result of percentages as such: 44%,21%,10%, this translates into ME2 as a range between 0 (0%) and 1.0 (100%). So an example of Auburn in ME2 ready colour format would be: (red) 0.44, (green) 0.21 and (blue) 0.1.

Changing FoV

1. Download and extract Widescreen Fixer.

2. Make sure ME3 and Origin have both been closed.

3. Run the Widescreen Fixer.exe file to launch the utility.

4. Select 'Mass Effect 3' from the 'Select Game' drop-down box.

5. Click the Cog icon next to the 'Select Game' box, and you can select a new FOV value for ME3 using the 'Vertical Field-of-View in Degrees' slider. Click the 'Save Settings' button when done, then click 'Close Window'.

6. Under the Settings tab of the utility, assign a hotkey to trigger the FOV fix. The default is labelled Multiply, which is the * key on your numeric keypad.

7. Leave Widescreen Fixer running in the background.

8. Launch Mass Effect 3, and you must make sure to activate the fix during the BioWare logo screen, by pressing the hotkey you assigned in Step 6.

Note: This tool is currently the best way to adjust FOV in ME3, as other methods can result in various quirks. You should not attempt to adjust your FOV in multiplayer mode as it can result in being banned.
