Square Enix has just released a patch that finally enables mod support for Final Fantasy XV. To help with the process a special tool called ‘Mod Organizer’ has been made available for the game.

According to the the official steam blog post for the game:

“The FFXV WINDOWS EDITION MOD ORGANIZER is a tool that converts assets you have created into mod data and incorporate them into the game world, which you can also upload to Steam Workshop if you want to so you can share your creations with the FFXV community”

As for its specific functionalities:

“The FFXV MOD ORGANIZER launches with the ability to mod characters, weapons and outfits. By replacing existing models and textures, you can change the appearances of Noctis, Prompto, Gladiolus and Ignis and also NPCs like Ardyn and Aranea as well as the NPCs you meet throughout your adventure in Eos.

Not only can you change character’s physical appearances, you can also change each character’s outfits and costumes by replacing them with new designs.

Last but not least, you can also mod weapons! You can even create brand new weapons and set your own stats and capabilities for them. New weapons have a 100-point distribution system to define their abilities and performance. The points can be attached to stats such as attack, max HP/MP, vitality and resistance to elemental magic. This is to make sure new weapons are still balanced within the game.

The FFXV MOD ORGANIZER does not have the functionality to create and/or edit assets such as 3D models. The main function of the MOD ORGANIZER is to build model data so that assets can be incorporated into the game and uploading this data to Steam Workshop. To create your own assets, you’ll have to use your own tools and output them in FBX format which the MOD ORGANIZER can then import.”

The ‘Mod Organizer’ can be found in the Steam Launcher’s “Tools” and mods by others can be installed through the Steam Workshop. The patch also adds a ‘MOD’ option in the game’s main menu.
