Final Fantasy XIV[b] is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) developed and published by Square Enix. Directed and produced by Naoki Yoshida, it was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows and PlayStation 3 in August 2013, with versions for PlayStation 4 and macOS releasing later. An Xbox One version is also scheudled to be released. The game, known as Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn,[c] is a replacement for the 2010 version of Final Fantasy XIV, which was shut down after negative reception at its launch. Final Fantasy XIV takes place in the fictional land of Eorzea, five years after the events of the original release. At the conclusion of the original game, the primal dragon Bahamut escapes from its lunar prison to initiate the Seventh Umbral Calamity, an apocalyptic event which destroys much of Eorzea. Through the gods' blessing, the player character escapes the devastation by time traveling five years into the future. As Eorzea recovers and rebuilds, the player must deal with the impending threat of invasion by the Garlean Empire from the north.

The original Final Fantasy XIV released in September 2010 to largely negative reception. As a result, then-Square Enix President Yoichi Wada announced that a new team, led by Yoshida, would take over and attempt to fix the issues with it. This team was responsible for generating content for the original version as well as developing a brand new game which would address all of the previous release's criticisms. Initially dubbed "Version 2.0", it features a new game engine, improved server infrastructure, and revamped gameplay, interface, and story, fully replacing the original.

The game released to largely positive reception; critics praised the game for its solid mechanics and progression, and they commended Yoshida for turning the project around. After a poor 2013 fiscal year, Square Enix executives attributed the company's 2014 return to profitability in part to the game's strong sales and subscriber base, reaching a total of over 18 million registered players by 2019. Since release, the game has had a number of content updates produced for it, including three major expansion packsHeavensward (2015), Stormblood (2017), and Shadowbringers (2019).

Yeah, I noticed those. They're due to the icons being converted from transparent png images provided via the Final Fantasy XIV Fan Kit.

My best bet at removing them would be to eventually make my own icons but there's not a lot of resources available to make any out of right now.

So until I can find some decent resources that I would like to use, I'm simply leaving the icons as they are for now.

Eventually I'll remake the icons once I can get better resources. But for now they're just basic temporary fillers to at least make the theme a bit more complete.
