About this mod

An attempt to overhaul the GUI to be less intrusive while trying to fit into the game's atmosphere.

Permissions and credits
Update: An even darker version of the darker version is available. It should fix brightness problems for those using Desert Reshade, I hope.


This mod uses NipponAiji's Minimal UI as a base which is a mod that alters the PNG file from Eldryn's Dark UI. I stripped down and adjusted some of Minimal UI's elements to follow Dark UI's positioning and added my own twist to it with the goal of being less intrusive while still fitting the game's atmosphere.
