Let us dive deeper and have a closer look at the Top 5 mods available to you for Civilization VI in 2020. These mods will not only make the game look better or provide you with more ammunition but also help you with research, diplomacy, enhanced multiplayer, and so much more.

  1. Environment Skin Mod

While the game is an overall delight to play, many gamers have raised concerns about the graphics of the game being way too saturated. This causes it to look a bit cartoonish at times. The houses, trees, and other elements often look quite unreal. However, the mod community stepped in to help out with this concern and released the Environment Skin Mod. This mod, once installed, helps tone down the overall saturated colors of the game, making it look more real and acceptable. This mod also helps other elements in the game, such as the trees, mountains, and so on, to look more realistic. If you wish to enhance your gaming experience and love playing with toned-down hues and contrast, you need to install this mod on your Civilization VI game right away.

  1. A Song of Ice and Fire: Rise and Fall of Usurper Mod

Who doesn’t love Game of Thrones? Now, thanks to the brilliant mod community of Civilization VI, you can combine both worlds and experience the brilliance and satisfaction of expanding your empire into the lands featured in George R R Martin’s Game of Thrones. The areas include the Iron Islands, Winterfell, Dorne, Riverlands, the Stormlands, and many more. What’s more amazing than defeating the Lannisters and the Greyjoys and teaming up with the Starks and the Baratheons to establish a vast and peaceful empire? There’s also the added bonus of getting to train your dragons to protect your empire.

  1. Durkle’s Anangu Mod

This mod enhances your gameplay further by adding an extra empire into the game – the Aboriginal Australian civilization of Anangu. You get to choose whether you wish to play with them as allies or enemies. With amazing natural wonders, new districts, and an astounding Australian soundtrack, this mod truly diversifies the empires available in the Civilization VI and takes you on a superb adventure ride.

  1. Real Era Tracker Mod

Civilization VI involves an Era Score that enables you to gradually increase your era from one to the other as and when you get more achievements in your name. However, the issue arising with this is that the game doesn’t come with a tracker where you can track which achievement or mini-achievement helped you get closer to the goal. Because of this uncertainty and cluelessness, the game becomes quite lengthy. It can take you a lot of time to reach your goals because of this guesswork. Installing the Real Era Tracker mod to deal with this issue works marvelously. You get to view a dashboard where you can see exactly which achievement will get you how many points to gradually shift into the next era.

  1. Better Trade Screen Mod

How much an empire flourishes and expands depends a lot on how well it does trading. Successful trading with neighboring empires helps you bring in money for a happier population and stronger defenses. The Better Trade Screen Mod brings loads of sorting and UI improvement tools in Civilization VI. You can analyze your trade overview with better sorting options and even use the ‘Repeat Route’ option to remember your trade routes and make expanding your empire much easier.
