Mods, or modifications change the game somehow, e.g. by changing the graphics, adding new units or buildings, or by changing the properties of existing ones. Under the following headers you should find links to some mods of all the games. For information on how to create mods, see modding.


This page is a resource for Civilization: Beyond Earth fan mods.

Beyond Earth currently supports FireTuner, Mod Buddy (available in Steam Tools) and Nexus.

Mods can be enabled via the game's Steam Workshop page. Subscribe to the mods you're interested in and then activate them in game to play. Discuss mods with other Wikia users in the forums.


Also note that internally the game uses XML and Lua files for mods, just like Civilization V, so the links in the Modding (Civ5) article are largely valid with Beyond Earth as well.
