Important Notices!

Sept 30 2014: Optimal rev is 653, latest SF.
Jun 22 2014: Slowly started adding Mirrors to file-downloads. Please use the Nexus where possible and endorse if you like my work! Mediafire mirrors added for downtime or similar issues.
Jun 08 2014: Do not use ME3Explorer REVs below 623 (Mar 18th '14).
Dec 25 2013: I've been working on moving all my mods to the Nexus as well as hosting them here.
 
General Installation Instructions
 
Any mod released in .TPF format can be temporarily applied via Texmod or be permanently applied via ME3Explorer's TPF/DDS Tools as long as they are format-fixed. Some of my mods are not yet inherently compatible, you can recognize them by where they are hosted as everything I moved to the Nexus is also format fixed and will work with the toolset out of the box.
Any mod released in .MOD format can only be applied via ME3Explorer's ModMaker.
If you are new to using ME3Explorer, check out the following guide. It includes notes on how to use ModMaker for the application of your .MOD file.
I have also written a compact guide on how to use TPF/DDS Tools, find it here. If you are new to using Texmod, check out the following guide.
 
ARMOR

ALL of the ME3 Armor sets have been completed. When using ME3Explorer be sure to BACK UP YOUR GAME FILES before attempting to run TPF files through the TPFTools for permanently replacement.

Mesh ports
Shepard Blue From Ashes Armor (Male). This mesh/texture mod replaces male sheps Dragon Armor with Vega's Bue From Ashes Armor. This armor is fully retextured. I've attached the N7 helmet to go with the armor, though because the original slot hides the head under the helmet using the armor requires an additional coalesced edit. I've provided basic instructions on the Nexus. --- Nexus


SQUADMATE ARMOR

This is a project I work on from time to time. Some of the Squadmate armors will be re-released soon in tpf and possibly .MOD format. Be sure to take ME3 Explorer's advice and BACK UP YOUR GAME FILES before replacing textures or meshes permanently.

GLOBAL NPC OUTFITS

In development. This project is meant to replace and improve all jarringly bad NPC outfits in the game.

npc1_collageekj76.jpg
- Alliance Dress Blues. NPCs, Shepard, Sanders, Anderson, Hackett. --- Nexus
- Science outfits (human/salarian/turian). NPCs, Chakwas, Shepard. --- Nexus
- Combat Fatigues. Gellix, Grissom Academy, Citadel, The Normandy crew and the first casual for Shepard --- Nexus


- All but two of the female humanoid dresses.
- 1/2 Turian casual outfits.
Current release version --- TEXMOD / ME3Explorer TPF


DLC NPC PACK

In development.

List of changes:
- Female Shepard formal dresswear & corresponding 'units' changed to my version of the dress in original colours. !NB! Works WITHOUT coalesced changes! !NB!
- "Thrash" NPC texture and outfit improvements. These NPCs are on one texture-sheet, I've improved a couple of them and am working on the rest in conjunction with the global NPC pack.
- Combat Fatigues on Normandy crew during certain parts of the DLC content changed to HR version from Global NPC pack. For some reason they switch from using texture in basefiles to one in the dlc files, so it needed a fix.

Current release version --- TEXMOD / ME3Explorer TPF


CITADEL ENVIRONMENTAL PACK

In development. I wanted to be an interior decorator, it itched, I scratched. This is totally my preference, not necessarily true to stock. Clicky the images for an impression. I'm gradually adding Citadel DLC texture replacements to this as well.
Current release includes 102 textures, total number in development is currently 102.

MISCELLANEOUS

MP Characters:
N7 Shadow  --- TEXMOD / ME3Explorer TPF


Enemies:
masseffect32014-05-29ncoix.png
Kai Leng --- Nexus

Maya Brooks --- Nexus

Eva Core --- Nexus
 
Weapons:
M8 Avenger, M6 Carnifex, N7 Valiant, M-96 Mattock, M-3 Predator --- Nexus


Ships:
The Normandy Cinematic and Docked textures, Alliance Cruiser  --- Nexus
--

I also have an ME2 Armor Project (much like this ME3 one), but it is restricted to work completely for Femshep alone at the moment. This pack changes the look and feel of the ME2 armor to fall more inline with the ME3 equivalent pieces and/or sets. I will be both making it fully compatible with Maleshep and providing all pieces with a normalised Normal map in time.



Aside from these projects, I have several others up under my project page. Feel free to have a look.

I'm looking very much forward to all those mod files, which will make Texmod almost obsolete.
Not saying that Texmod is in any way bad, but it has a rather shoddy history with my chosen brand of GPU's ;)

You're the second to ask today actually =) Yes, probably will, but not before my armor-project is concluded.
As it stands now, the Serrice set will be released later today. After that I have three sets left, but effectively only 4 pieces to retexture due to the work I'd already done on them in extend to Femshep. Shouldn't take too long to release all armor. With that done, I'll have more freedom to pick up new projects.

@Everyone, thanks again for the support guys, glad you like =)
