FFXIV Model Viewer

FFXIV Model Viewer is a utility for viewing the models and other files used by Square Enix's MMORPG, Final Fantasy XIV.

This software DOES NOT modify the game or the data used by the game in any way.


Before installing the FFXIV Model Viewer you must have the following installed:

Once the prerequisites are installed simply run the installer and choose a destination folder.

If you have FFXIV installed the program should detect its location via a registry key. Additionally, the program will initially cache data used for rendering NPCs/monsters which may take a little bit of time. This process will be repeated whenever an updated version of FFXIV is detected.

Using the Model Viewer

Left panel:
Shows contents of files opened view File > Open. Most files in the FFXIV data and client folders can be viewed and some allow additional functionality:

   Shader/File - View disassembled shader (DirectX shader assembly)
          GTEX - View texture
          MDLC - View model (untextured)
  Vorbis/ADPCM - Play Sound
skl (Skeleton) - Visualize skeleton (static or animated)
    Lua Script - Save script

Center panel:
Allows you to search for NPCs and monsters and, ideally, display them as they appear in-game.

Right panel:
Displays list of models located in the /client/chara folders. mon = monsters, bgobj = background objects, pc = players/armor, wep = weapons
Not all folders are able to be viewed using this method.
