question!! how exactly do i go about using your fshali save and importing my shep's headmorph?? im very new to modding me2 so i have literally no idea what im doing but i need my femshep to kiss tali lol
Hey there! Sorry I didn’t get to this immediately last night but I fell asleep. But now I’m fully rested and ready to give unto thee, anon, the ancient secrets of Gibbed’s Save Editor, headmorphs, and obtaining sweet sweet fshali romance.
I’m going to take screencaps to make this super easy. The larger caps are kinda squished by tumblr so I made them click through links to full sized screencaps. Just click ‘em!
Step One: Open up Gibbed’s Saved Editor and open the save in Gibbed’s.
This is pretty easy and self explanatory- open up the correct save file that you want to edit. First we’re going to extract your Shep’s headmorph for use in other saves. Select a save with the correct headmorph of your Shepard and open it.
Step Two: Exporting Your Shep’s Headmorph
Helpful red guiding circles! For some reason the Player>Appearance tab was never implemented in ME2 Gibbed’s (It is fully functional in ME3 Gibbed’s, but that’s a different topic all together) so all headmorph work happens in the Toolbox tab. First we need to make an .me2headmorph file of your Shepard. With your Shepard’s save opened up, go to Toolbox, then hit Export Entire Head. Save the resulting headmorph file anywhere you want, just as long as you know where it is on your computer. It doesn’t have to be in any certain game file like some other types of mods. (I keep a huge collection of headmorphs in a folder on my desktop, for example)
Step Three: Open My FShali Save
No pictures for this one ‘cuz you did this already in Step One. This time, instead of opening your Shepard’s save file, we’ll be opening my fShali save in Gibbed’s. Place my fShali save in your Shepard’s save folder in My Documents > Bioware > Mass Effect 2 > Saves. Then, go to Gibbed’s and open it up just like we did with your Shepard’s save.
Step Four: Importing Your Headmorph
Time to transform my Shepard into yours! Once again, go back to the Toolbox tab and this time hit “Import”. Select the .me2headmorph file of your Shepard’s headmorph that we made in Step Two and open it. Now the Shepard in this save will have the appearance of your Shepard!
Step Five: Changing Gender
The final step is upon us and sweet, sweet fShali kisses are almost within your grasp. Simply go to Basic and then down to the Gender option and make sure it is set to Female (and optionally rename and adjust the class to fit your Shep but that’s totally optional). Once that’s done, hit save, open up Mass Effect 2, go through the Omega Four Relay and be rewarded with….
….. And that’s about it! If you have ANY more questions, let me know and I will do everything I can to help you achieve the Great FShali Dream. Anything to spread the joyful gospel of fShali to the world. Also fShep gives the best bedroom eyes when she takes off Tali’s mask- it’s so much better than the dopey face mShep makes- so prepare for that.
Now go forth and have your femShep smooch her beloved Quarian engineer girlfriend!!!!
Who do you think would win in a fight, a turian or a sanghelli?
defo sangheili. So far in mass effect I haven’t seen any turians get into any hand to hand combat like the sangheili do, so turians lose that battle GG. But turians have a good chance in an actual gun fight, especially if they’re really good engineers, like some of the quarian or salarian engineers in Mass Effect 3 multiplayer (i haven’t played ME:A yet so idk how the new ME:A species line up lol)
A little pjo mass effect au for @anxiouspineapples‘ fantastic art of Annabeth she did over here that I told her I’d write a thing for like a month ago. Reposted and edited and here have it please, I can’t look at it anymore, I just love this AU too much.
A journalist makes it relatively unharmed to the FOB, armed with a stolen assault rifle and a camera drone and absolute dumb luck. Soldiers hurry about the camp, seemingly well-organized despite the general chaos and sense of panic, despite the giant, roaring nightmares bearing down from above. She waves her press pass and steps past the barricade into some semblance of safety and exhales.
Her name is Lacy. She is now, officially, a wartime correspondent. Days and days ago, she’d been in the middle of sitting a Xeno Pub Affairs exam when the tall glass windows of the classroom exploded inward and the world started shaking. A huge red eye hanging in the sky swung toward her, hummed, fired, and she thought–
They should have listened.
The beam sliced through the concrete and rebar of the building easy as air. Mitchell had pushed her down. Mitchell had gone down with her, rolled her underneath a desk, asked her if she was alright, if she could move, if she could breathe, and god, it is easier not to think of him now, impossible not to think of him at all. Mitchell and his still, unseeing eyes. The still, unmoving bodies of her classmates as she clawed her way out of the rubble.
She clutches her press pass and her gun as she walks through the base. Nobody has time for her. She walks. The camera drone she managed to recover from the old Humanities building trails behind her, recording the bruise-dark sky, the looming clouds, the towering monstrosities laying waste to the world. London is a disaster of stone and dust; London is a reflection of every city on every planet, burning alive.
Lacy walks past a medical station set up in an open storefront. IV bags hang on exposed bars of jagged metal, and the wounded and dying lie on the ground. She walks past a makeshift canteen made up of stacked crates of rations. An armory in the back of a lifted Hammerhead, and a pair of engineers lying underneath it, tools littering the ground around them. A flat patch of dry grass and a stretch of sleeping bags and resting soldiers. Lacy walks, and she watches. Soldiers and medics. Civilians who have become a bit of both.
She walks. Further in, she starts to see faces she recognizes.
The Demon in the Girl (closed RP with Xerxesofthewolfpack)
Today was a bit odd on the Normandy. Everyone was quiet and David had holed himself up in the armory with Ava’s pet ferret, Bandit, where his cot was with his seemingly endless stash of jelly beans. and the Quarian was out of engineering and hiding in the main battery with Zanial. No one had seen Ava all day. The XO Katherine addressed Xerxes.
She spoke with an Irish accent. “Xerxes. I have a massive backlog of paperwork and no one’s seen Ava all day. Could you go check on her for me. MIC said she disabled all the cameras but one up there last week. I’d appreciate it greatly.”
Omg your amethyst Krogan drawing makes me think of what the other gems would be. I'm thinking that Pearl and Peridot are Salarians, Garnet is Turian, and Jasper is also Krogan. I'm not sure about Lapis, maybe Quarian?
well, in the context of the AU, they’re all still Gems. But if they were ME species and not the same race, I definitely agree that Jasper would be a krogan too (probably also a vat grown one)
and Garnet I could see as a turian, like the biggest turian and a really high ranking military official. I don’t really know how to incorporate Ruby and Sapphire into that though (that’s kinda of a unique Gem thing so). I recall a ME3 multiplayer turian that had like a flying rocket punch (I think its the havoc soldier) and that would definitely be what she is.
I keep going back and forth with Pearl with either salarian or quarian. Salarian makes sense for their intelligence and science-mindedness and speaking fast and kind of haughty superior attitude they can sometimes have.
But also quarian makes a lot of sense because quarians are engineers and live on spaceships and are great at building and repairing things with little supplies or proper resources. I also think their weak immune system could work as a stand in for Pearl’s issue with food. Also I think it makes sense for Pearl is be a member of a race that created an AI and screwed up to the point everything went out of control and there was a war and they were kicked off their planet by the AI they created. Because in SU Pearl is literally killed by an AI she made.
Lapis could be…I dunno, a hanar? ‘cause they’re jellyfish and she has that ocean thing, haha
