ME3Explorer Wiki

Development of the DLC mod method has led to a growing number of content mods for Mass Effect 3. Maintaining compatibility between mods is of course at the discretion of each author, but locating and keeping track of the technical details associated with each mod (Mount.dlc priority, plot bools, etc) is difficult at best. This article summarizes the necessary information and serves as a resource for all DLC mod creators who wish to add to it.

Please note that this article is not only for released mods, but mods still under active development. Feel free to communicate information regarding the various game parameters you are using for your mod; this will ensure other modders don't start using the same ones.

All content mod authors are also encouraged to keep a list of modded files on their hosting site as a modder's resource (for example, in the ReadMe tab on Nexusmods). This will prevent the modder from having to download the mod just to see what files are included.

Tip.png DLC mod authors, please keep this table formatted alphabetically by Mod Name and fill out the proper information for each column (even if it is "n/a"). List the lead author for the mod, only. This should be the person that correspondence is directed to in the case of questions.
