Features

  • Minimal flat white design for all interactive elements (menu items etc).
  • Includes two sets of ini tweaks: the first all-white (fully monochrome) with white stat bars, and the second (less monochrome version) where all stat bars retain low-saturated versions of their vanilla look (based on darkened vanilla colours in destruction, restoration and illusion spell icons).
  • All headers, borders, and other lines are removed.
  • Compass logo redone in the style of a modern navigation symbol in black-bordered white.
  • Crosshair replaced with a (low-res) black-bordered white dot.
  • Cursor variants redone as simple black-bordered white arrows.
  • All map markers are filled.
  • All enchantment icons are removed.
  • All equipped icon borders in flat white.
  • Barter icon borders in flat red.
  • New main menu based on Bethesda's Morrowind webpage image.
  • New splash screen based on the same image.
  • Default splash and main menu in vanilla resolutions (1024x1024 and 1024x512, respectively).
  • 2048x1536 (4:3), 2048x1280 (16:10) and 2048x1152 (16:9) resolutions are also available in the optional directory.
  • New Journal buttons in black, with blue hover, and lighter blue press (matching the standard links).
  • Includes recoloured Journal and Scroll backgrounds to match the monochrome theme.
  • Includes blank .bik files in order to bypass the Bethesda and main menu videos.
