Final Fantasy XIV Mods


 A great mod is like a love letter to a video game, and Final Fantasy XIV has received lots of love letters since its 2010 debut. Mods are typically created by dedicated players who want to correct a certain issue through retexturing, recoloring, or organizing an unruly element. If you're looking for the best ones to use for FFXIV, we've got you covered.

1. Moogle Maps

While most of the mods in this list are designed purely for aesthetic purposes, Moogle Maps is a genuinely useful add-on. This mod replaces the original map texture with a new overlay that puts treasure locations and daily hunt monsters directly on your radar, making the overall act of participating in these hunts much more convenient.
2. Fr4nsson’s FFXIV Config

If you’re new to MMORPGs, then FFXIV’s UI is probably not the easiest to get used to (even veterans complain about it from time to time). Fr4nsson created this custom FFXIV configuration complete with a clean informational HUD layout where jobs have all spells assigned to hotbars. It’s not for everyone, especially those who already have hotkeys they’re used to, but it’s a great mod if the game’s HUD overwhelms you.
3. The Newness

The Newness makes the world of FFXIV more vibrant through lighting and shadow enhancements. Colors are more vivid, and it's easier to appreciate small details you might otherwise not have noticed. The best part? The Newness doesn't put any strain on your frame rate, so you get all the benefits of improved graphics with none of the potential downsides that come with installing weightier mods.
4. HD Hrothgar Faces

If you play as a Hrothgar and constantly find yourself disappointed by the low-res rendering, you're not alone. HD Hrothgar Faces retexturizes the base Hrothgar faces so that your animalistic warrior pops the way they deserve to.
5. Viera Refined

If you're on the other side of the Shadowbringers race additions and want to show your Viera a little love, download Viera Refined. This mod adds new textures for skin quality, lips, and eyes, so your bunny girl (and upcoming with the Endwalker expansion, bunny boy) looks picture-perfect in every cutscene.

6. Touch of Real (Male and Female)

The Touch of Real Male and Female mods make for some of the best available facial retexture packs. True to its name, Touch of Real replaces the original face bases with startlingly realistic textures to make you feel even more connected to your FFXIV alter ego. Just note that, at this time, the only races that can obtain these textures are Hyur, Miqo'te, and Elezen.

7. NPC Defined

The NPC Defined mod ensures that your own character isn't the only lovely creature wandering Eorzea—various NPCs throughout the game also get a texture upgrade. The original texture design of these characters has not been altered or even smoothed out, upgraded to enhance facial details four times over. This is the ideal mod for the kind of people who kick Animal Crossing villagers out because they're "too ugly."

8. Owl's Eyes of Eorzea

Owl's Eyes of Eorzea not only retexturizes eyes to make them brighter and more lifelike, but this mod also takes into account each race and subrace's specific customizations, so no one texture overhaul is completely alike—and there are hundreds to choose from.

9. HD Summons

If you're a scholar or summoner, you might be interested in this HD Summons mod. Your beloved pets have never looked better than in high definition, with vibrant colors and defined details making your summons feel exciting again. Maybe the beauty upgrade will inspire them to fight harder in battle? We can hope.

10. Alive Gshade Preset

This immersive mod enhances color settings and makes subtle environmental corrections. Alive Gshade Preset offers various color schemes that you can choose between and an atmospheric fog that you can adjust according to your preferences. All of Eorzea will look crisp and beautiful with this installed! Just make sure your device can run a mod of this size, otherwise, you may run into issues with gameplay.
