How to use mods in Palworld
To use a Palworld mod, you need to install it. You can find a list of working mods for the survival game over on Nexus Mods. Each mod hosted on that website should give you specific installation instructions.
It’s always best to follow the instructions on each specific mod page, as they might not work properly if you don’t.

The best Palworld mods we’ve seen so far
There are a number of Palworld mods available to install and use already, including visual mods that change the appearance of Pals and your playable character, gameplay altering mods and more.
Here are our current picks for the best Palworld mods we’ve seen so far and where to download them:
Palworld Stormtrooper mod
The Palworld Stormtrooper mod is a visual mod that replaces the PIDF Guard with a Stormtrooper from Star Wars.
The Stormtrooper model has been lifted from Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, and you can see it in action via a screenshot from mod creator HirohikoHoshino above.
Carry Weight Increase mod
Fed up with your meagre carry weight? The Carry Weight Increase mod (by Vuxacha on Nexus Mods) increases your starting carry weight from 300 to 1,000, and increases the gain per point to 250. Very handy.
Always Fast Travel mod
The Always Fast Travel mod by Yangff on Nexus Mods is well worth a try if you want to move across the Palworld map much faster than before. With this mod installed, you should be able to fast travel wherever you like – it also increases your character’s movement speed!
Increased Base Amount and Worker Pals mod
If you’re after more bases (the standard maximum number allowed is three), you’ll want to install Vuxacha’s Increased Base Amount and Worker Pals mod from Nexus Mods. With this mod installed, you can have up to 100 bases and 100 worker Pals.
Play as Zoe mod
Download the Play as Zoe mod by FrancisLouis on Nexus Mods to change your player character into Zoe!
As per the mod’s description: "You have two choices: either the version that comes with her default hairstyle, although it lacks physics, or a version that you can use any hair on her.
"You must use the default preset that the game gives you when you start the game to be able to fully use the mod without issues."
Faster Breeding mod
Download the Faster Breeding mod by zouzoulle over on Nexus Mods and you'll drastically improve breeding times in the game.
Breeding is a slow process in the base game, but if you install this mod you can speed everything up.
The default breeding time is 300 seconds in Palworld. This mod can reduce it to 1, 10, 30, 60 or 150 seconds.
You can also choose FasterBreedingBerries, which should let you use berries instead of cake to breed your Pals together – it also speeds the process up in the same way as the basic FasterBreeding option.
