The Best Conan Exiles Mods
Last updated: September 13, 2021
Conan Exiles has a great foundation in terms of play-ability and character creation however many players believe the base game has its restrictions.
This however has sparked the imaginations of many mod creators, as they have tweaked and modded the game to add additional content that players can download for free on the Steam Workshop.
If you’ve just recently rented a Conan Exiles server you should consider installing some mods as soon as possible.
If you haven’t rented a server yet, I would suggest reading the article “How to choose a Conan Exiles Server Hosting provider” before continuing this one.
As below I will teach you how to install mods and recommend the best Conan Exiles mods to download.
How to Upload Mods
The below guide is a quick tutorial that will help you upload mods onto a locally hosted server.
If you would like to install mods on privately rented servers, it’s best to get in contact with your provider, who will offer you assistance.
Adding mods is simple if you’re using the PC version of Conan Exiles, just follow these four steps below.
- Simply open the Steam Workshop and select the mod you wish to use from the list.
- You will need to subscribe to the mod creator and click download on the mod associated with the creator’s profile.
- Once the mod has finished downloading, open the Conan Exiles client. The main menu will appear with a list of options including “Mods.”
- When you select the “Mods” option, a list of all your downloaded mods will appear. If it’s your first time in this menu all the mods will be switched off. Simply click the mods you would like to activate for your session.
The server may have issues when mods are first installed. To avoid problems either start a new modded world or troubleshoot the issues by restarting your game or removing mods you feel may be causing the problem.
Please Note: Some mods are not compatible with each other, which may cause your server to crash.
My 5 Best Conan Exiles Mods
Once you have learned how to download and install mods you will next need to know which mods to use.
Below are my top 5 mods that I always upload to my Conan Exiles server using the above process.
1. Find your way with the MapCoords Mod
It’s easy to get lost in Conan Exiles if it’s your first time playing, but surprisingly experienced players can also lose their way or misplace their base every now and then due to the lack of map functions.
However, MapCoords can take the confusion out of pinpointing key locations and landmarks.
With the reference guide, you can easily tell your friends where you built your hideout or where to meet up for the next raid.
This isn’t a game-changing mod but it will certainly improve your navigation in future adventures.
2. Increase your inventory
The mod “Increased Item Stack” is self-explanatory. The default inventory cap is set at 100, which is very limited if you don’t have anywhere to store your items.
However, this mod will increase your inventory stacks ten times to store 1000 items making early recourse gathering much easier.
This does not change the amount of weight your character can hold so you will have to track and manage the items you are carrying.
Though it’s the perfect mod for the early game as you will not have to focus on building a base to store your resources.
3. Reach level 100
With the “100 Level” mod you can remove the default level 50 cap and increase it by 50!
The add-on will also add an additional 325 attribute points which can be spent on your character stats as well as another 333 knowledge points that can be spent on your other skills.
With the additional levels and skill points, you will be able to upgrade your character with every single skill in the game, which makes this mod extremely powerful.
4. Improve your server management
Admins have to control their servers using the command lists if they want to effectively run their world but this requires an admin to know all the commands or have a command list they can use.
However, the “Pippi” mod allows players to easily oversee and manage their community with a well-designed UI, which doesn’t require command inputs.
Instead, you can select one of the many features on the UI including teleportation for players, creating kits, config changes, booting players and more.
Below is a list of all the features the Pippi User Interface includes:
- Kit Building
- Brand New Chat System
- Teleportation Network
- Rule Specifications
- Ranking System
- Players System
- Overview clan management
- Server Announcements
5. Emberlight Mod
The creators of Emberlight wanted to improve the role-playing elements of Conan Exiles by focusing on the core structures that make an RPG great.
New systems such as the Homestead mechanic allow you to raise animals, build a farm, make wine and decorate your home to further personalize your space.
You also have access to the “Vanity” items such as the mirror and vanity table which will allow you to completely customize your look with new haircuts, face shaping and more.
The mod adds loads that can not be justified in writing so you will need to try it for yourself to really appreciate the mechanics that have been added.
I will summarise the features below:
- Additional Items
- More food items
- Emberloot and Thralls which are customizable
- Game tweaks for Quality of life changes
- Paint and themes for buildings
- Animal Husbandry
- Wine Making
- Configuration of the item and building times
- Character cosmetics
- New weapons and legendary weapons
- Modify armor and clothing
The mods listed in this article are probably the best quality of life mods which can help improve the popularity of your server and increase the number of hours you can play the game for.
Of course, there are loads of other mods available that may cater more to your requirements, so check out the Steam Workshop and start testing a few that pique your interest.
