What does this mod do?
The Enhanced User Interface mod aims to improve the standard user interface by highlighting gameplay mechanics such as afflictions and inspirations, damage and defense keywords and much more. More than 1000 ability, item or UI entries have been modified to enhance the user experience and to make some fairly opaque game mechanics a bit more transparent.

Packages
This mod consists of four different packages, tailored to suit every users need. We recommend downloading the Main Package as it contains implemented features and provides the best overall experience for the user. If you prefer something more bare boned, however, please feel free to select one of the other three packages available.

Choose one of the following four options when downloading the mod:



Installation

  1. Download the mod.
  2. Go to your Pillars of Eternity II\PillarsOfEternityII_Data\ directory.
  3. Look for (or create) an override folder in your PillarsOfEternityII_Data directory.
  4. The correct file path should look like this: Pillars of Eternity II\PillarsOfEternityII_Data\override
  5. Extract the PoE2-EnhancedUserInterface folder into your override folder (mod folder name may vary depending on what mod version you picked).
  6. Make sure that you don't need to download any additional files (only relevant if you're playing in German, Korean or Russian, see Dependencies down below).
  7. All done, you can now safely launch the game.

Once extracted the folder structure should look like this:

Pillars of Eternity II
└─ PillarsOfEternityII_Data
└─ override
└─ PoE2-EnhancedUserInterface
├─ localized
│ └─ en
 └─ text
 └─ game
 ├─ abilities.stringtable
 ├─ cyclopedia.stringtable
 ├─ gui.stringtable
 ├─ items.stringtable
 ├─ recipes.stringtable
 └─ statuseffects.stringtable
├─ EnhancedUI-NewKeywords.gamedatabundle
├─ manifest.json
└─ thumb.png


Please note that this example only includes the English language pack (en). Once installed your localized folder will include all languange packs, namely: de_patch (German language pack), it (Italian language pack), kr (Korean language pack) and ru (Russian language pack).
