Kalthaniell -> MASS EFFECT MOD [Released 1.00] (7/16/2012 7:28:01 PM)
This is a mod that introduces ME universe to Distant Worlds. We are doing our best to reflect the greatness of Mass Effect onto a 4X game, bringing as much lore accurate settings to DW as possible. The mod allows you to play with one of ME races and lead your people to greatness rewriting the history of ME Universe as you see fit. The original DW races are still playable in the mod so you can include them in the struggle for the survival of the galaxy if you so desire. The mod is set at the twilight of the cycle known from the ME games. This means that sooner or later the Reapers will invade and it's up to you to unite the galaxy against them or stand fast on your own. Good luck and have fun!
Current mod version is 1.00
-Twelve playable ME races added to the DW ones.
Alliance, Turians, Asari, Salarians, Quarians, Geth, Batarians, Volus, Vorcha, Elcor, Hanar and Krogan.
-Reapers, (replacing Shakturi)
-Custom made shipart for each of the major races.
-Over 120 customized characters (generic characters form ME games will be included in future releases)

More will be added as the mod develops.
