Enhanced UI for 7 Days to Die - A19.6

Replaces the user interface for the menu, in-game HUD and UI with a more horror like experience that according to my opinion is better fitting for the game.

// Greetings, fellow survivors!

Welcome to the new and improved SMX modlets for 7 Days to Die - Alpha 19.

With this modlet series my goal is to give the entire 7DTD user interface an extreme makeover and refashion it into how I believe the user interface for the game should be experienced. The mod consists of several modlets which can be broken down into three separate mods. These are all stand alone and can be used alone or, as is the intention, together with the other two. These three mods combined is what makes the SMX experience complete!

Please be advised that SMXlib is a library modlet that all the other modlets fetch assets from. Because of this it is a mandatory modlet that is required to be installed regardless of which SMX mods you want to use.

There are also optional downloads, like the bigger backpack modlets, the target health bar modlet and the third forge slot expansion.

I hope you will enjoy to play 7DTD using the SMX modlets. And if you do, please consider endorsing it, have fun! :)

// SMXhud // The HUD replacement modlet...

SMXhud is SMX as you know it from Alpha 16 first remade into a modlet and tweaked for Alpha 17 & 18 and now further enhanced for Alpha 19. The purpose of SMXhud is to take the in-game HUD into a more horror like and gritty art style all while trying to stay as informative as possible while not being intrusive on your gameplay.



SMXhud - The base HUD conversion.



ZMXhudCPTHB - Enables the Target Health Bar for SMXhud. (Install optional modlet ZMXhudCPTHB to get the target health bar)






// SMXmenu // The MENU replacement modlet...

SMXmenu is a menu conversion modlet. It was made to extend the art style of SMX into the menu UI’s of the game and even though it was made to supplement SMXhud it will also work stand alone for those that just want to modify their menu UI's.



SMXmenu - The Main Menu conversion.



SMXmenu - The In-Game Menu conversion.



SMXmenu - Video Settings Window.






// SMXui // The UI replacement modlet...

SMXui is an extension of SMXhud and SMXmenu and will bring the art style over to the rest of the user interface. I've tried to maintain as close a relation to the vanilla interface as possible but I have also granted myself some artistic freedom when it comes to some areas. It deviates from vanilla with the fifth crafting queue slot which I added to make it fit the overall design better. The other changes I made are all optional like the third forge slot and the 63, 99 and 110 slot big bag conversion modlets for those that want a bit bigger bags.



SMXui - The forge with the third forge slot enabled. (Install optional modlet ZMXuiCPTFS to get the third forge slot & ZMXuiBBM to get the bigger backback)



SMXui - Totally reworked skills windows. The goal was to make it look like a talent screen.



SMXui - Trader Window.
