Update 2.4
Small bug fixes. See details here.

Important
This mod requires SKSE.

What is iHUD?
The aim of iHUD is to provide the immersive feel you get from having no HUD, whilst keeping the usefulness of having one. It takes the permanantly visible HUD elements such as compass and crosshair, and hides them when not needed. Hence the motto:

HUD when you need. HIDE when you don't.




What does it let you do?
1. Toggle the compass with the 'x' key. You can change this through the MCM settings or by going to console and typing 'set iHUDKey to X' where X is the numerical scancode for the key.
2. The crosshair is only visible when using a ranged weapon/staff or a spell, or when hovering over an activatable item.
3. Allows you to change the transparancy of the compass and crosshair seperately (see video).
4. Floating quest markers only visible when the compass is visible (see video).
5. Allow you to remove the sneak meter, but keep the crosshair when using bow, staff or spell (see video).
6. Speeds up how fast the magicka, health and stamina bars disappear once you regain 100%.

Now the Fallout versions of this mod had far more features, allowing you to permanantly hide things like health, stealth meter etc. Or change when they were visible, and how long before they faded. I fully intend to do the same for Skyrim.

Console commands
'set iHUDEnabled to 0' -> Disables the scripts completely. The only way to restart after this is to set it back to 1, save your game and reload (which restarts the scripts).

'set iHUDSneakMeterEnabled to 0' -> Disables the Sneak Meter. Setting it back to 1 changes it back. Default is 1 (on)

'set iHUDCompassAlpha to X' - > Sets the alpha of the compass and quest markers to X, where X is a whole number over 0. 100 is equal to whatever your HUD alpha is normally. Over 100 will make it brighter, but only up to a certain level.

'set iHUDCrosshairAlpha to X' - > Sets the alpha of the crosshair to X, where X is a whole number over 0. 100 is equal to whatever your HUD alpha is normally. Over 100 will make it brighter, but only up to a certain level.

'set iHUDHealthAlpha to X' - > Sets the alpha of the health bar to X, where X is a whole number over 0. 100 is equal to whatever your HUD alpha is normally. Over 100 will make it brighter, but only up to a certain level.

'set iHUDMagickaAlpha to X' - > Sets the alpha of the magicka bar to X, where X is a whole number over 0. 100 is equal to whatever your HUD alpha is normally. Over 100 will make it brighter, but only up to a certain level.

'set iHUDStaminaAlpha to X' - > Sets the alpha of the stamina bar to X, where X is a whole number over 0. 100 is equal to whatever your HUD alpha is normally. Over 100 will make it brighter, but only up to a certain level.

'set iHUDCrosshairOnActivate to X'' -> When set to 1 the crosshair will appear when looking at something you can activate/talk to. Default is '1' (On).

'set iHUDCrosshairOnSpell to X'' -> When set to 1 the crosshair will appear when wielding a spell and have hands ready to cast. Default is '1' (On).

'set iHUDCrosshairOnRanged to X'' -> When set to 1 the crosshair will appear when wielding a ranged weapon and weapon is drawn. Default is '1' (On).

'set iHUDCrosshairOnMelee to X'' -> When set to 1 the crosshair will appear when wielding a melee weapon and weapon is drawn. Default is '0' (Off).


Installation
See the video above for details on how to install this mod.

1. Click the Download with Manager button in the files section to download to NMM.
2. Activate the mod from the mods tab.

Or if you prefer to manually install, just download the file and extract the files into the data folder. Make sure you check the iHUD.esp in you load order.

Makes sure you have SKSE installed.

Updating from a previous version
For anyone having problems with missing HUD elements:

1) If you are using an old version of iHUD, uninstall it completely.

2) Once you have removed any old versions of iHUD it may be necessary to reinstall any other mods you have which affect the HUD (Such as colored map markers and compass icons for example).

3) You should now be able to download and install iHUD v2a safely.

*Thanks to SeraphTC for the upgrade instructions.

Un-Installation
1. Deactivate the mod in NMM.
2. If you load your game and the compass is not visible, close the game and open up the SkyrimPrefs.ini file and make sure bShowCompass is set to 1.

FAQ
1. When I install this with NMM it throws an exception.
Try closing NMM after you downloaded/created the mod package. Then reopen NMM and try to activate it again. It usually works after this.


Credits
This mod would not be possible without the help and work of the SkyUI modding community, especially Schlangster, Kratos and Mardoxx.
