If you want to get an upgraded version of the textures provided in the game, you can use the Face Defined mod. It’s designed to improve the vanilla faces of the characters in the game and also includes Defined Eye textures.
Similar to Face Defined, the Hair Define FFXIV Addon will improve the hair textures for characters. It replaces the eyebrows, eyelashes, beards and hair textures for every gender and race.
Here’s yet another addon that will give you better textures. So if you always wanted the vanilla textures to be upscaled so that you get better character features, this is the one you are searching for.
Moogle Maps is the ideal FF14 mod for those who enjoy daily treasure hunts. With this addon, you will be able to find treasures easily because all it does is replaces the original texture. It’s a small change but can make a big difference to players while doing daily hunts.
Alex’s FFXIV Reshade Preset – Best FFXIV Addon
Want to change the lighting and get sharper images in FF14? This addon does it for you. Since it’s a 2010 MMO RPG, with this mod you can actually make it look and feel like a newly released game.
Continuing the topic of making the game look more ‘new’, the Touch of Real mod tries to do it with the characters. Use the realistic looking faces to get, as the mod’s name suggests, a touch of realism.
This mod does a lot of things. It gives you a better color palette by changing the contrast and color range while still making it look like the game. It also enhances the lighting and implements RayTraced Global Illumination (RTGI). You don’t require an RTX graphics card to run the RTGI shader due to how the ReShade Shader works.
With this addon, you can make the gameplay much smoother at lower FPS. It eliminates/reduces the flickering and also gives you performance improvement.
Here’s a graphical FF14 addon that will make your world look even better. When you use it, you will get color balance and it will remove the green haze that the game has normally. You will also get depth of field and more changes that will ramp up the visual quality of the game.
These are some of the best FFXIV mods and addons that you can try out. This list is far from over, we will be adding some more mod packs to this list soon. Again, do remember to check out how these addons affect your game and your computer. Some might have special requirements while some may be quite taxing on your computer, so choose wisely.
