A Lot Of Textures (ALOT) is a "Vanilla-friendly, exhaustive and easy to install graphical overhaul mod for the Mass Effect Trilogy", and is now available for those who have Mass Effect Legendary Edition.
It was actually endorsed by Bioware "as a benchmark for its improvements" that went into the Legendary Edition.
While the Nexus Mods page states that the Legendary Edition rendered much of the work obsolete, many of the textures in the mod remain superior.
This includes improvements specifically for ALOT's Improved Static Lightning (ISL)--which was completely remade--"and vastly improved upon for the LE." Apparently, much of the lightning and shadows players will see in-game are pre-rendered and stored as textures.
ISL fixes this by running the textures through a "state-of-the-art, neural network-based denoising, antialiasing and upscaling process for about 40,000 light and shadow maps across the trilogy." That's a lot of anything, let alone light and shadow maps.
You also are able to pick and choose which parts of ALOT you want to install, with some players prefering the Legendary Edition Character models, but preferring other parts from ALOT.
