In the event you’re not into the nippiness deep-space vibe of Mass Impact 2’s resource-gathering minigame, the place you launch probes at planets and watch your pile of iridium tick up, different choices can be found. The One Probe All Assets (opens in new tab) mod, just like the identify suggests, provides you each useful resource on a planet with a single probe. Or you may simply Cheat Engine your means to an enormous stockpile and by no means run out of factor zero once more. If neither of these appears satisfying to you, now there’s one other technique to get round listening to the phrases “probe launched” a couple of hundred instances.
Nos Astra Mineral Alternate (opens in new tab) is a mod for Mass Impact Legendary Version by beccatoria and Crew Pyjak that allows you to commerce assets and forex on a galactic inventory market, shopping for and promoting commodities as an alternative of—or in addition to—mining them. Along with being a spaceship commander, hostage negotiator, and promoting spokesperson, now Shepard will be an investor as properly.
The mods additionally contains new missions, with further traces for current characters created with AI dialogue instrument xVASynth and voice appearing by modder Gaige Barker. To start the mod, head to Nos Astra on the asari world of Ilium within the Crescent Nebula the place you may discover terminals for public buying and selling close to the docks entrance. There you’ll be able to signal as much as purchase and promote factor zero, iridium, platinum, palladium, and galactic commonplace forex for various commerce charges.
Because the mod’s description explains, “Commerce charges refresh after every mission, together with randomly generated financial situations which have given rise to any surplus, regular provide or scarcity.” You may also play the market from a terminal on the Shadow Dealer’s ship. It is not the identical as exploiting provide and demand in video games like Elite or Wing Commander Privateer, but it surely’s good to have a substitute for planet-scanning that provides one thing slightly than trivializing what’s already there.
To put in Nos Astra Mineral Alternate you may have to obtain it from NexusMods (opens in new tab) or Mod DB (opens in new tab), then set up it with the ME3Tweaks Mod Supervisor (opens in new tab). Apparently it is incompatible with the New Attire for Females (opens in new tab) mod, since each alter content material within the Ilium docks space, so I am afraid you may have to decide on between taking part in the inventory market or having each girl put on a minidress.
