About this mod

An espless collection of optional game tweaks with an INI to configure settings.
Includes Faster Sleep Wait, Deselect Quests, Compass Height Indicator and more.

Permissions and credits
An esp-less collection of Quality-of-Life improvements in one file with INI settings to enable tweaks.

All features are optional and disabled by default
and can be enabled by launching the game to fill the INI and then modifying the relevant line under the [Tweaks] section to be ‘= 1’ instead of ‘= 0’. For hotkey options, change the value under [Hotkeys] to the desired key.

It is safe to install, update or uninstall mid-playthrough (a new save is not required).

When updating, the mod's INI will be automatically filled with any new settings after launching the game - you do not need to reconfigure settings when updating.

New since 3.00

For a full changelog see here.
