STEP 2 - USER INTERFACE

RaceMenu

Download and install the main file.


Additional instructions:
Hide / delete RaceMenuPlugin.esp (instructions).


Widescreen compatibility:
Download and install RaceMenu – Widescreen Fix.
Please note: the file linked above was made for an older version of RaceMenu and I cannot verify that it still works. Given the lack of people requesting an update for the RaceMenu widescreen fix in the comments, I’d assume it works fine.

Extended UI (optional)

Download and install the main file.


Porting instructions:


Additional instructions:

  • Double-click Extended UI in your mod order (left pane).
  • Switch to the Filetree tab.
  • Right-click and hide/delete the following file:
    • interface/console.swf

Explanation: The file would overwrite More Informative Console and break that mod.


Widescreen compatibility:
Download and install Extended UI – Widescreen Fix.

Widescreen compatibility:
Download and install SkyHud – High Resolution Widescreen Fix.


Customising SkyHUD:
It’s extremely easy to change most elements of SkyHUD to suit your taste by editing SkyHUD.txt (double-click the mod in your mod order and you can edit the TXT through the Textfiles tab directly). Use this guide by the mod author – it’s slightly outdated but still very useful.


Personal Edits:
Here’s what I change (set to 1) after selecting the Vanilla Small preset in the FOMOD installer:

bHideStealthText=1no more ‘hidden / detected’
bHideLocations=1already discovered locations are not displayed on the compass
bHideUndiscoveredLocations=1undiscovered locations are not displayed on the compass
bAltArrow=1better arrow count display
bAltCompass=1slim compass
bDotCrosshair=1dot crosshair

A Quality World Map

Download and install:
8.4 A Quality World Map – Classic with All Roads

You can also download and install the Clear Skies Map Addon if you wish. Personally I like the clouds.


Additional instructions:

  • Unpack and delete icepenguinworldmapclassic – textures.bsa (instructions).

Regarding the other options:
Neither the Vivid nor the Paper versions are available as options here because they both require a little more maintenance. In the case of the Vivid version, we have the problem that it relies on a custom noise.dds (which would overwrite the one from Cathedral Landscapes) and the Paper version needs to be patched for all mods that touch the Tamriel parent worldspace record (RW2, Immersive Dawnguard Dayspring Pass). This is why neither of them are currently supported.
