Modding To Victory: Best Mods for Civ 6

Fans love to endlessly debate whether Civ 5 or Civ 6 is the better game. One thing we can all agree on, though, is that mods make these great games even better.

Civ 6 is a solid example of this. While we love most of the improvements in this sequel, there are times we want to tweak the gameplay experience. To help you do just that, here are a few of the best mods for Civ 6.

Vibrant Waters

So perty

Civ 6 is a pretty game, but there are a few areas where they really phoned things in. For example, the water always looks very simple and plain.

The Vibrant Waters mod makes the water textures much prettier. From lakes and streams to major oceans, everything looks better than ever before.

It may sound like a simple graphical change. But this water mod is so pretty it’s downright distracting!

Environment Skin: Sid Meier’s Civilization V

A whole new world

One of the biggest changes of Civ5 vs Civ 6 is the graphics. Whereas Civ 5 tried to look a bit more realistic, Civ 6 looks more cartoony than its predecessor.

If you ever wished that Civ 6 looked a bit more like Civ 5, then you’ll love the Environment Skin: Sid Meier’s Civilization V mod. It tweaks color saturation and tone as well as adding additional clutter and texture to different landscape features.

Whether you dig these changes or not is a matter of taste. But this mod is one of the best ways to transform the overall look of your game!

Immersive Dialogue

Talk the talk

There is no “wrong” way to play Civ 6. For example, some people skip most of the dialogue as quickly as possible. Other people, however, see the dialogue as one of the best ways to enjoy realistic roleplaying within the game.

And those people will really love the Immersive Dialogue mod. This mod replaces the non-spoken dialogue with new text. In addition to giving you more dialogue options, this mod also tries to replicate how famous world leaders actually communicated.

In short? This gives you more gameplay and more realism. And now, we never play without it!

Anno Domini

AD, bay-bee!

So far, we have focused on mods that make minor changes. But what if you want to completely transform your Civ 6 experience?

Anno Domini is a complete conversion of Civ 6 that emphasizes the Ancient and Classical time periods of the game. The mod provides 30 unique civilizations, all of them fully kitted out with their own tech trees and civic trees.

There is a little something for everyone in this mod. Whether you love these eras or you simply want to play Civ 6 like never before, you should download Anno Domini today!

What Next?

Now you know what mods are best for Civ 6. But do you know when it’s time to roll back the clock?

Sometimes it’s fun to return to earlier games like Civ 5. To see if that time is now, check out our Civ Civ 5 vs Civ 6 comparison for more details.
