Updating this for the first time in months.

- Removed "Alliance Dress Whites" (out-of-date project page), added "Spectre Whites"/"The Respectable Attire Mod"/"Shorter Dreams", moved "Heavy Weapons Mod" to the Restored Content section, reformatted entire list to remove redundant links and look much cleaner

As always, let me know if you have further suggestions and I'll throw them on.

You should probably post this as a PDF on Nexus, it will get more visibility there :). Also, a bit of self-advertising : http://www.nexusmods.com/masseffect3/mods/363/?

I barely use Nexus as it is. I wrote this for the benefit of the people on this forum, but if you want to distribute it anywhere else, be my guest. I've linked to it a couple times from the Reddit ME hub.

Will add the ALOT entry and move the FMM over.
