Given the fact that Mass Effect 3 is one of the best games of all times but at the same time ends in a ridiculous way, I think this tool will come useful to most of ME fans.
What this tool allows you to do is pretty simple:
- Edit the plot/story, basically if you made some mistakes in previous games or in ME3 you can simply “rewrite” them. I will give some examples in the example area.
- Add experience, add Paragon/Renegade/Reputation.
- Edit/Add War Assets.
Always make backups of your saves before editing.
This tool is very easy to use, all you need is the Boolean ID for the quest you want to edit. You take those IDs from here: http://pastebin.com/zv8mxcxs. Not all quests have been “mapped” yet but those should be more than enough to change the plot however you want.
For instance, if you want to have Wrex in Mass Effect 3 instead of Wreave you have to search for Wrex in that pastebin text.
You will find this line:
WrexAlive, PlotIDSet=(13942,13024,13015),PlotIDClear=(13028,13029,15543,13021), PlotInts=(),PlotCond=()
PlotIDSet means that all those IDs must be set to True and IDs in PlotIDClear must be set to False in order to have Wrex in game but not break the game.
You will need to open a Mass Effect 3 save, doesn’t matter how much far in the game you are. Changing those IDs is like rewriting history.
Once you opened that save you will need to navigate to Plot, you will only need to work with the Bool text input as all the IDs from the pastebin text are boolean.
In order to have Wrex in our game you need to set all these IDs: 13942,13024,13015 to True and all these IDs: 13028,13029,15543,13021 to False.
To set a ID True you simply enter the ID in the Bool Input Area and thick the Is Set box and hit Set
To set a ID False you simply enter the ID in the Bool Input Area and unthick the Is Set box and hit Set
The Get function returns the current value of the ID entered.
Then you “save the save” and load it. All should be fine.
Possibilities are unlimited, you can also add War Assets but this is a bit harder to do, you have to edit GAWAssets Collection and add/edit the values you want. I don’t know the values for every Military Asset but I can help you if you want. I finished the game 4 times already and I have a lot of saves to compare GAWAssets IDs and I already have the IDs for the Geth Military Force, Alliance, Quarian, etc.
For instance the IDs for Geth are: 102, 103, 104; each of these IDs have a “strength indicator”, in my case: 102 = 305, 103 = 300, 104 = 60 so the Geth have a combined force of 665.
List for War Assets is available here: http://pastebin.com/hRks27wB
