Frequently Asked Questions

Q: You have so many mods! Do I need them all?
A: It's up to you! You can use one, 5 or all of them, each covers specific widget and can be installed or uninstalled at any moment without any issues. Most have sub-versions to choose from, including auto-hide versions, versions for ultrawide screens and for controllers. Check the list in the end of every mod's description page, you will find something to your liking.

Q: I already have Improved UI installed. Why do I need your mods?
A: Improved UI is a great mod, but it covers very specific things mostly - character creation UI, world tooltips and custom classes support. My mods improve almost every widget in the game, from containers to hotbar, from maps to loading screens. Don't hesitate to use both IUI and my mods, they are fully compatible and complement each other.

Q: I want UI to be immersive - fade-out when I'm not using it. Is that possible?
A: Absolutely! You need to download so-called "auto-hide" versions of: Better Hotbar 2, Better Maps AIO, Dynamic Sidebar and Better Combat Log 2. Those widgets are always visible in vanilla, but with forementioned mods they will fade-out in 2 sec after mouse stoped hovering over them. You can use them all or hide only those widgets which distract you.

Q: Are there requirements for your mods?
ANope. They do not require mod fixer, script extender, Improved UI or anything else.

Q: What mod manager should I use with them?
A: Any or even none! With BG3MM when you are importing them, they will go to Overrides, keep them here. For Vortex set them as replacers. They will also work without any mod manager, just copy paks inside archives to \users\...\Baldur's Gate 3\Mods folder.

Q: Are they compatible with X mod?
AMost likely! The only hard incompatibilities are Immersive UI by Aetherpoint and a few mods removing related widget elements by Fahadbh.

Q: I have an issue with one of your mods, what do?
A: Read carefully description page, then Sticky in comments. 95% chance you will find your answer here. if not, describe your issue the best you can, preferably with reliable way to reproduce it, and add your setup description (mod manager, override mod list, version of the mod, aspect ratio, SP/MP etc). I usually solve issues in a few hours.

Q: You don't have change log, outrageous!
A: I do have actually. Its in Sticky (Posts tab) of related mod.

Q: I want a custom version of your mod!
A: I used to make custom versions back then. Now with over 70 mod files to update and maintain very little time left for specific requests, so I can't promise anything. But you are welcomed to DM me, at least I will answer if its doable.

Q: I love your mods, can I support you somehow? / Your mods are godawful, can I somehow help you to get better?
A: You can donate a penny via Nexus while downloading mods or Patreon (link is at the bottom of every mod's page), that will help me to spend more time on modding. Simple kind words is no less appreciated.

Q: Why do you hate controllers and don't support controllers UI?
A: I do not hate controllers, but controllers UI normally requires writing another mod for it from the scratch. I'm adding support in some time after KB/M release usually.

Mod Description
This is a minor rework of context panel. Made to make widget look more like context menus in modern applications. Changes are mostly visual, but faster widget rendering and quick drop-out animation from Faster Context Menu is here too:

  • 35+ icons for contextual actions - most of them are reworked BG3 assets, some are drawn from the scratch.
  • symmetric clean panel and better visible highlighting when hovering over the lines instead of arrow icon.
  • faster animations of window rendering and list drop-out.

I've also added version for weak-sighted, its 30% bigger, slightly moved to the top to prevent widget cutting if called from the bottom of the screen and has draggability if user would like to move it to the part of the screen which is closer to them.

Drop .pak from archive to user/appdata/local/larian studios/baldur's gate 3/mods or install with BG3 Mod Manager/Vortex. In BG3MM mod should be in Overrides, in Vortex - set a replacer.

Remove mod's .pak manually or with BG3 Mod Manager/Vortex.

Compatible with Improved UI.
May be incompatible with other mods that mess with the same UI .xaml (DefaultTheme.Styles.xaml).
Compatible with controllers.
MP: need to be installed on all clients.
