EDI from Mass Effect 3 - UPDATED

by NF8977 Posted 24th Apr 2013 at 1:35 AM - Updated 23rd May 2014 at 1:17 PM by NF8977 : Updated Edi-skin.package file with more content
256 Thanks  Thanks     92 Favourited
Feel free to watch the short video of her creation:

The image below is what EDI looks like in Mass Effect 3:

EDI is a Quantum Blue Box type AI that functions as the electronic warfare defense for the Normandy SR-2. Because of the potential danger of a rogue AI, she has been given behavioral blocks and cannot interface with the ship's systems. She also serves as the Illusive Man's eyes and ears on the Normandy, monitoring the many listening devices on board and sending regular reports to him.

While investigating Prothean technology on Mars, Shepard's team recovers a Cerberus synthetic, an android masquerading as "Dr. Eva Coré". EDI assists in extracting vital data from the unit, and in the process, she seizes control of the body. This allows her to serve as a squadmate on missions.

In sunlight her skin can be a different skintone, but this image is specifically at dawn when some colors are more pronounced from the sun than others. During normal daylight her skin is more of a tealish gray. Her skin is reflective as is her face.

The hair color is customizable. It will show up black, but go to the color options and you can change it. Also, you can download a naked mod to remove the bikini, but keep in mind that's an adult feature. Meaning 18+.

I didn't create the visor, so you'll need to download that from Esmeralda:

ONE THING TO NOTE! EDI can have kids, but they will come out as humans. I haven't created a baby, toddler, child, teen, or elder texture yet because well it's a robot and she isn't supposed to age. I will eventually create a skin for babies to teens. If she grows up, just age her back down. zip package contents:
EDI Hair.package (if you have issues with this, you can download the .sim3package at my mediafire: )
EDI-skin.package (uses a basic non-default skin.)
EDI_AI.sim (this sim uses clothing from all expansions, but expansions aren't necessary to install the sim. This sim file is not saved with the skin I created, so you will need to add the skin in CAS)

EDI Hair.package has 15,200 polygons. 9900 vertices. Includes two hair diffuse dds files and 3 hair control dds files.
EDI-skin.package uses basic skin replacement. It includes face diff, scalp, spec, and norm. And edi skin diffuse, norm, and spec dds files.

Thanks! And I hope you enjoy EDI!!! I'm currently working on Tali'Zorah and a Mako.

*************UPDATE***************** - As I learn more about how to do this, I've been updating things. This includes an updated Edi-skin.package file which has skins for both Female and Male from Child to Elder.
Also, I'm still working on Tali'Zorah. I've gotten everything working, there's just an issue with the fingers, as if they won't allow only three fingers.

Hello Everyone! MTS user Atala very kindly fixed an issue with the hair for EDI where after a certain distance away from her, the hair would change. You can download that fix here
ALSO! Tali'Zorah is well underway. Still working on a couple things like her mask, but she is now available for download: Or you can just watch the EDI video for the annotation which will take you to Tali. The download link is in the description.
