This mod is split up into four different modules, so you can choose which parts you do and don't want to use:

  • Enemy Indicators: Removes the icons and meters that show how aware enemies are of the player's presence, and whether or not they're hostile.
  • Vignettes: Removes the black vignette used when the player is hidden, crouched, or wall hugging. Also removes the red vignette used when the player is low on health or on the resurrection screen.
  • Unnecessary Icons: Removes the icons that show interactable objects from a distance (not the interaction prompts when you're right next to them), the auto-save icon, the checkmark showing you've eavesdropped on NPCs (because it shows from a much longer distance than the prompt), and the icon that shows if an item you've picked up went to storage rather than your inventory.
  • Backgrounds: Removes the backgrounds behind certain text and icons to give the HUD a much cleaner and open feel.

Note: Because this mod uses the same file as Katalash's popular Native PS4 Buttons mod (and he was kind enough to allow other modders to use his mod), each variant of this mod includes a version for the default controls and a version for DualShock 4 controls.


Optional Extras

These are all standalone, so one variant of each letter can be used in addition to one of the main variants of the mod, or on their own!

Options Pack A - (Button prompts)
  • A1: Removes the button prompts when wall hugging, ledge climbing, or swimming. All other button prompts are unchanged.
  • A2: Removes the button prompts when wall hugging, ledge climbing, or swimming. Also removes the text (not the button icons) for interaction prompts.

All variants of Options Pack C also include the option to remove all interaction prompts.



Just put extract the .zip archive and move the menu or msg folder into Mod Engine's mods folder.

Each variant of the mod might modify different files, and the files modified may change when this mod is updated.
I highly recommend removing the files from the previous variant or version when switching or updating.
