First Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age mods let you play as Reks, allow party members in towns and more

It appears that the first mods for Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age have surfaced, allowing players to create their own license boards or edit existing ones and use them in the game, play as Reks for the whole game, and bring their party members in towns.

Naturally these are still early mods, however it’s great witnessing a game using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech (even though it has been cracked, the Steam version still uses it) allowing basic modding.

The Zodiac Planner – Custom License Boards mod allows you to create your own license boards or edit existing ones and use them in the game. Moreover, players can use this mod that replaces the existing license board with a FFX style Sphere Grid.

The next mod allows players to have Reks for the entirety of the game. Do note though that Reks will replace Vaan for the whole duration of the game. The modder has also created a Cheat Table to be able to Modify his Stats, Equipment, Gambits, Licenses and even Jobs. This mod is based on a glitch that was discovered by ejh1990.

Last but not least, players can bring their party members in town thanks to this mod. The modder suggests players backing up their saves as this mod may – or may not – corrupt their saves due to possible glitches.

Do note that you will need the VBF Browser for the aforementioned mods. This tool allows you to browse the inner filesystem of Final Fantasy XII The Zodiac Age’s compressed main file, extract files from it, and replace them with your own.

Have fun!
