For those of you that STILL don't know why I've not been doing anything productive recently it's because I've been working on a mod for ME3 that replaces Kaidan Alenko with Alex Mercer.

This is starting to feel like an important thing… so I gave it it’s own tag on my tumblr blog #ME3MercerMod

Check out the progression of the mod there.

I’m attempting to make a link to said tag on my blog… it appears that tumblr needs time to figure this shit out.

in the meantime I had a small realization while working out bits and pieces of the mod…

because of the stupidly inefficient way ME3’s PCC system works, Kaiden’s armor retexture available in the N7 Collector’s edition/Digital Deluxe Edition etc. is actually a completely separate mesh along with the retexture. What does this mean? It means I can replace it with a whole new mesh and set of textures… and I FUCKING DID!

REPLACE ONE DLC ARMOR WITH ANOTHER DLC ARMOR!

Say Hello to the Prototype 2 DLC Alex Mercer Armored mode!

He wears that helmet-thing at all times and I kept the hands from his virus-arms armor…

I still need to work out a few kinks in this one but so far look

The main problem I have with this armor is my own stupid inability to tell if he’s a part of the reaper forces or on my side…

I’ll be all carving a path of destruction through a level and

This is very interesting. I've been looking for a good tutorial that would explain how to work on UE packages, how to modify them and reimport them back in the game(s)... but with no luck. Is there anything you can link for me?

That armor, btw, looks absolutely epic.

UE packages? Is that Unreal Editor packages?

Yeah I mean Unreal Engine packages, the ones ME uses for the models and stuff.

Well ME3 is unique in the fact that some blessed soul who calls himself warranty voider made the me3explorer which is like a 3rd party equivalent of the creation kit for Skyrim or the G.E.C.K. for Fallout 3. It allows the user to pick apart ME3 and edit bits and pieces. I'm pretty certain it's entire creation was due to the horrible ending/s and the desire to make a modded one that doesn't suck. So basically ME3 is the only Unreal Engine game I know of that has an editing program... Perhaps some of the techniques used in it could be applied to other games, I'm not sure but I'll link you to all the tutorials and mod resources I have for it anyway:
