Exclamation Owners of "Mass Effect PC" please read!

As was discovered by ArrowMK, there's a texture problem on Therum after installing the "Bring Down the Sky" patch for ME (1.01). Well, I dug through a few threads over in the ME forum, and I found a simple fix.

There is an easy fix for the Therum missing lava!

Go to My Documents\BioWare\Mass Effect\Published\CookedPC and delete the UPK file (LocalShaderCache-PC-D3D-SM3.upk).

Start ME and enjoy Therum in its former glory!
I tried it, and it restores the textures on Therum.

If you haven't already done this, you probably should.

Darn it! It was already discussed in the ME 1.01 patch thread.

I already tried, but it said he was too large and I didn't really want to delete him at this time.

Just compress him in a .rar file & send him via blutooth.
