Shepard's Lounge/Office (Citadel) XPS - (DOWNLOAD) by raccooncitizen Shepard's Lounge/Office (Citadel) XPS - (DOWNLOAD) by raccooncitizen
*drumroll* Tadaaaaah, and here it is - A Mass Effect scenery for XPS/XNA! :excited:


Shepard's Apartment (Citadel DLC) - 'Lounge / Office' - a mod by raccooncitizen

>>> Hit the 'Download' button on the right side of your screen to download >>>


I reconstructed this scenery from scratch using the following objects ported by our talented modders:

>> Poker table, medals, computer, TV screen, books, binders, paper piles, seating and datapads

>> Big overhead lamp (thanks, again!!), Citadel model

>> Freighter model, Cerberus cruiser model

and have created a lot of custom makes myself - such as: 
>> walls, floor, ceiling, trims, fireplace, rug, grates, bar table, rounded coffee table, spotlight rails, door switches and statistics panel, trash cans, shelves and mirror

>> The non-ingame painting, 'Scouting for Resources' ( fav.me/d658xmz ) is a digital speedpainting by the fantastic artist Jael-Kolken. She has kindly given her permission to embed her artwork in this mod. Thank you so much!!! :heart: Doesn't it look WAY better than that original 'Kandinsky'? ;)


All used elements have been revised in their textures and maps and adjusted, where applicable.



ENABLE both 'Back-face culling' and 'Always force culling' (under the Options menu) to be able to see through the ceiling from above and see the ceiling when placing the camera inside !!!



I split the room and seating into two sets - mainly because there's no way a Krogan or James could fit on one of those barstools. :D
If you wish to use separate pieces, please grab them from Just-Jasper's furniture packs if you haven't already. The barstools are my retextures for the base white ones, so swapping the textures with mine should do the trick. ;)


Out of courtesy for eeeendless hours of work please give credit! :thanks:


All that being said - Grab your poker chips from Melllin (in his recent uploads) and a beer from the shelf and go and have fun!!!

Chris/raccooncitizen :blowkiss:



Created in blender. Output: .mesh. Will happily provide other format if requested.

That's great job!! Clap 
If you don't mind me asking: did you extract the walls from the game and then positioned them or did you create your own walls in, say, 3ds or so? See, I'm currently trying to "recreate" whole Citadel apartment but I'm stuck with the walls (>_<)

Sorry about the super late reply!
Thank you so much, really glad you enjoyed this! :w00t:
I hear ya! Guess either the game seems to render the walls & environment borders on the go … or I haven't been able to work out where exactly to find em. So I did indeed create the walls, floors, skirting, etc. in blender.
You're recreating the whole apartment? Holy wow! Sounds great!! How is it coming along so far? :excited:

Thaks for the reply (^-^)
Wow! You've created all walls on your own? That's awesome! Clap
I haven't had much time lately so I've put it on-hold for now. I've manage to find the walls but it's hard to figure out where each wall should be. I guess I need to have the game running to look at apartment and position walls in 3ds but for that I should have two PC Sweating a little... And some of the walls seem missing. Also there is a problem with textures. The game seem to position them in right proportion, but using 3ds the textures are too big or too small. I've started with bedroom on the first floor (I like it most Rainbow Bounce + PLZ  ) and got stuck.

I just had the chance to load this up and check it out, and it looks amazing!  :jawdrop:  Fantastic work!  :worship:

Do you think you might eventually do any other areas from the apartment?  Like one of the bedrooms, or the living room?

Quite possible that I might end up making more apartment environments (the living room oughta be a pain but hell, this one was too - and did I enjoy it! :D)
However, for now, my next reconstruction mod will be the Starboard Observation Deck :meow:

I'm sending some points your way for making this available for everybody. It's not much, but it's what I have. If you make more environments available, let me know and I'll send more points.

Really glad this will be useful! :dance:

I will indeed be making on more environments - in fact, I had intended to reconstruct the Starboard Observation Deck first (to make somewhat of an epilogue render, similar to this fav.me/d6nb1xu but for my Femshep, with Kaidan and all the crew), however, I was missing the main component - the big window. Now that I managed to extract it I'll be working on that next. :meow:

Great! I'm making a small ME fan-comic in my spare time and it really helps to have XNA Lara models as references. I have many characters and props, but few environments. I'm sure I'm not the only one who finds these useful, and I'm glad that there are people like you doing the work needed to make them available for everybody to use, so I'd like to thank you. Let me know whenever you make a new ME environment available and I'll donate points to you for each. If you add a donation widget to your page, I'll use that. Otherwise I'll just use the "give" tab on your page. Thanks again!
