About this mod

Replacer for Skyrim interface in a paper style.

Permissions and credits
Skyrim SE version|Skyrim LE version|Enderal version

This is the paper interface replacer for almost all SkyUI menus (and most of those UI elemets that are not covered by SkyUI). 

Used Tools:

Photoshop CS6 - for textures
Inkscape - for vector graphics
JPEXS Free Flash Decompiler - for SWF files editing

1. Install the mod with mod manager, just follow the FOMOD installer instructions and choose whatever you like. I don't support manual installation, but if you really want to install it manually, of course you can. All the folders in the archive are named properly.

2. After installation you can open the file interface\deardiary\config.txt for enabling-disabling some options and to set transparency if you need it. There is detailed description for every option in that file. 

Completely safe to install / uninstall / update mid-game (of course if using any modern mod manager).

Compatible with any language

Better Messagebox Controls by ecirbaf - similar fix are already included, you won't have this issues anymore

Note: if you use another mod that modifies the "config.txt" file from SkyUI and you don't want for some reason to fully overwrite it with mine, just paste these values in the corresponding lines (these changes in config.txt are needed to make color features of alchemy/follower inventory menu work properly and to adjust the item card position):

itemcard.xOffset = -70
colors.text.enabled = 0x2A2A2A
colors.stolen.enabled = 0x2A2A2A
colors.negative.enabled = 0xff0000
colors.text.disabled = 0x777777         ; 0x4C4C4C if transparency enabled
colors.stolen.disabled = 0x777777         ; 0x4C4C4C if transparency enabled
colors.negative.disabled = 0x800000

I recommend using the Sovngarde font replacer by Mist or Enderal font replacer (only for languages with latin alphabet). 

I don't recommend using the Reshade with this UI replacer, because Reshade alters everything on screen (while ENB works only for the game and not for the UI elemets). 

Some great mods that fit "paper" theme:

Paper HUD by rob18 - to complement the HUD UI with very similar design.
