Having an active modding scene is extremely important for any game that wants to stand the test of time on PC.

Players might not have access to the official Baldur’s Gate 3 modding tools yet, but they’re doing their best to ensure the game has a ton of interesting mods to keep the game feeling fresh.

Baldur’s Gate 3 players illustrate the game’s role-playing potential with a creative build based on Princess Azula from Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Redditor Ainell shared images from the Baldur’s Gate 3 mod, which they confirmed was Appearance Edit Enhanced. While the mod doesn’t specifically turn the main characters of Baldur’s Gate 3 into gnomes, it gives players the tools to edit them in any way they please. Ainell has decided to do a full gnome playthrough, giving favorites such as Astarion, Shadowheart, and Lae’zel a considerably shorter appearance. In the context of the game, it doesn’t actually mean much, but it’s certainly an interesting way to freshen up a repeat playthrough of Baldur’s Gate 3.

Although Baldur’s Gate 3 already has plenty of races to choose from, it’s interesting how the game’s modding community has engaged with this particular element of the game. Recently, one Baldur’s Gate 3 modder added playable Yuan-Ti to the game, bringing a Dungeons and Dragons favorite into Larian’s RPG. As more time passes and with the release of the mod tools, gamers should keep an eye on what races the community adds to the game in the future.

Despite Larian confirming that it won’t be releasing DLC for Baldur’s Gate 3, mod tools are still coming for the game.

Larian’s journey with Baldur’s Gate 3 might be largely complete at this point, but the game itself has many years of life yet, which will be lengthened by the upcoming mod support.
