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
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.

• UI retextures
• Font color edits
• Overhaul of UI layouts


  1. Download DesertUI in the main files section.
  2. Extract contents to "..\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Kenshi\mods"
  3. If you're using Font Redux, download Patch for FontRedux in the optional files section.
  4. Extract contents to "..\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Kenshi\mods"
  5. When using any of the optional files, extract all of its contents to "..\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Kenshi\mods\Desert UI"
  6. Done.

RECOMMENDATIONS (shown in screenshots) 
Font Redux 
Alternative Text Fonts
Simple Map Markers
Loading Screens Fixed

These are not necessary, but they fit the UI as intended.

Patch for Font Redux in optional downloads.

Optimal resolution: 1920x1080, borderless window. Font size 16. Not tested on other resolutions.

Bounty and name texts overlaps. Will try to fix this in the future. Fixed on update 1.1
Loading screen texts unreadable against bright bg. Fixed on update 1.2
