FallUI - Inventory

A optimized Fallout 4 inventory interface for PC.

Complete overhaul of the inventories of Pipboy, container, trader, workshops and companions. Enhances most info tables in Pipboy with more details and much better look. Also adds a huge load of quality-of-live features, information and more tools like bulk transfer to container (or back). The goal of this mod is to make Fallout 4 interface feels like it was made for PC.

Motivation and history

This mod begun as a small extension to the long time best inventory mod dev_inv by Neanka (Permissions to use DEF_INV as base granted).
The main reason for building this mod was the bad performance with the really huge icon sets and item sorting mods today.
So i fixed that. And found other nice-to-have feature i'am missing, and build that, and so on. The result can be seen in the features list.
Meanwhile it has developed to an complete own overhaul mod of Pipboy and inventory, including many new features and a better customizable style than vanilla Fallout.
Since the new-writting in version 1.11 it uses the original Fallout 4 interface files as base instead of extending def_inv, so all new icons and interface elements of the new Fallout 4 version are included too now.
FallUI have also got brothers and sisters, like FallUI Workbench, FallUI Confirm boxes and many more. These modular mods extend other interfaces as well and can be used seperatly or all together, just as you like! With the new mods "FallUI" become the name for the whole series, and this mod got a new post name "FallUI - Inventory" to be part of the FallUI series.
