This mod introduces a large amount of bug fixes, visual corrections, and restored content for the entire game. It also backports some changes from the Legendary Edition and helps integrate DLCs.
In this article, we will show you how to download and install UME3P 1.05 for PC. Before you begin, make sure you have a backup of your game files and save files, as well as a clean installation of Mass Effect 3 without any other mods. You will also need a mod manager such as ME3Tweaks Mod Manager or ME3Explorer.
Step 1: Download UME3P 1.05
You can download UME3P 1.05 from Nexus Mods[^1^]. The file size is about 1.2 GB. You will need to create a free account on Nexus Mods if you don't have one already. Once you have downloaded the file, extract it to a folder of your choice.
Step 2: Install UME3P 1.05
There are two ways to install UME3P 1.05: using a mod manager or manually. We recommend using a mod manager as it is easier and safer.
Using a mod manager
If you are using ME3Tweaks Mod Manager, simply drag and drop the UME3P folder into the mod manager window. It will automatically detect the mod and show you its details. Click on Import Mod and then Apply Mod. The mod manager will apply the mod to your game files and create a backup of the original files.
If you are using ME3Explorer, open the program and go to Tools > Mod Maker. Click on Load Mod and browse to the UME3P folder. Select the .mod file inside and click Open. The program will show you the mod details and ask you to confirm. Click on Run All and wait for the process to finish.
If you prefer to install UME3P manually, you will need to copy and paste some files from the UME3P folder to your game folder. The game folder is usually located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\Mass Effect 3\ or C:\Program Files\Origin Games\Mass Effect 3\. Make sure you have a backup of your game files before proceeding.
First, copy the BIOGame folder from UME3P to your game folder and overwrite any existing files. Then, copy the Binaries folder from UME3P to your game folder and overwrite any existing files. Finally, copy the DLC folder from UME3P to your game folder and overwrite any existing files.
Step 3: Enjoy UME3P 1.05
