This mod comes in 4 parts, completely overhauling The Alesso Heist's name & visuals to instead be themed around Pale Waves (one of my absolute favourite bands of all time, so this is one HECK of a passion project for me... and it's how I'm justifying the 8+ hours I spent on this. Help.)
The 4 parts are:
- Heist name/briefing changes, basically replacing every mention of Alesso with Pale Waves
- Texture changes, replacing all screens/merch stands with images/logos for Pale Waves
- Music video change, with the video playing on the main stage during the pyrotechnic objective changing to the music video for Jealousy, one of their most recent singles
- Changing the loading screen to match with the heist's updated textures (this one is much more optional AND REQUIRES COLOURED LOADING SCREENS!)
Each section comes in its own folder/file, all of which is easy to install and set up (see Instructions for all the details!)
Note - this doesn't change any music. I would LOVE to do that, but even if I knew how to it would breach DMCA as it'd be using copyrighted music...

Version 1.0 - Initial Upload.
All images used in this mod are sourced from promotional material, photoshoots and music videos for Pale Waves. You can check out their website here, which will give you access to their socials and YouTube channel from which I obtained everything!
Installation is split into each of the 4 folders/files, all of which can be found in the "The Pale Waves Alesso Heist Overhaul Pack" folder you download from this page:
1. HEIST NAME CHANGER
Copy the folder named "The Pale Waves Heist" into your MODS folder - NOT OVERRIDES! This will change the name/briefings for the heist. When finished, your folder should appear in your directory as such: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\PAYDAY 2/mods/The Pale Waves Heist
2. HEIST TEXTURE CHANGES
Copy the folder named "Pale Waves Concert" into your mod overrides folder, this will change all of the textures in the heist to images of Pale Waves band members/logos/merch. The file directory should look like this: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\PAYDAY 2/assets/mod_overrides/Pale Waves Concert
3. HEIST VIDEO CHANGE
Copy the folder named "Pale Waves Jealousy Alesso Video" into your mod overrides folder, this will change the video played on the main stage to the music video for Jealousy. The file directory should look like this: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\PAYDAY 2/assets/mod_overrides/Pale Waves Jealousy Alesso Video
4. HEIST LOADING SCREEN CHANGE
As stated, this one is optional since it requires installation of Coloured Loading Screens, and so if you don't have/want to install this mod, you can ignore this part of the installation! If you have installed CLS, take the "job_alesso.texture" file in the ZIP (it should be loose alongside the other 3 folders) and replace the pre-existing file of the same name in the CLS mod folder in your overrides, found in this directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\PAYDAY 2/assets/mod_overrides/Coloured Loading Screens/guis/dlcs/pic/textures/loading
This should cover everything, but if you have any questions please get in contact!
