About this mod

Journal, Inventory, MCM, Favorites etc. paper interface replacer.

Permissions and credits

This is the paper interface replacer for almost all SkyUI menus (and those menus that are not covered by SkyUI). 
The paper MCM replacer is based on "Even Wider Rescaled" version of my mod Wider MCM Menu for SkyUI, all final version fixes included, so no more text clipping. 
Flashing savegame fix included in all options. 
Some minor Journal UI fixes included in all options. 

For version 1.1 and above: there is a FOMOD installer with all variants included.
Just follow the instructions of the installer and choose whatever you like. 
I don't support manual installation. 
Don't worry about the size of installer, it's only because of many pre-compiled options inside. After installation the mod itself will take only 5-10 Mb. 

For version 1.3 and above there is also optional file with "author's choice". If you, like me, play on keyboard/mouse, like clean brown interface colors without transparency, and use frosfall unofficial update - you can just download and install this tiny file. But anyways I recommend to download AIO insaller and choose options you like. 

Completely safe to install / uninstall / update mid-game

  • Fully compatible with everything that does not change these files: 
icons_category_celtic.swf (icon replacers won't break anything, but included ones have altered colors to be visible on paper)
  • Compatible with any language
  • Compatible with Skyrim Souls RE by Ryan
  • Compatible with Stay At The System Page - Updated by Ryan - iammitochondrion 
  • Compatible with Unofficial Frostfall Campfire Update by Sthaagg Memnochs - there is option inside the installer (load my mod after/below it)
  • Compatible with MoreHUD Inventory Edition by Ahzaab - there is option inside the installer (load my mod after/below it)
  • Compatible with any paper world map replacer
  • Fixes from Better Messagebox Controls by ecirbaf already included
  • Technically compatible with ElSopa - Animated Celtic Icons For SkyUI SE by ElSopa and other category icons replacers (maybe not so visible on paper texture as they made for default UI background)
  • Bottom bar image removed, width changed to 2560, so compatible with ultra wide monitors (at least with 2560x1080)
  • If for some reason you use SkyUI in loose files form (unpacked BSA), just load my mod after SkyUI in mod manager. Or overwrite manually in case of manual installation.

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
colors.stolen.disabled = 0x777777
colors.negative.disabled = 0x800000

I highly recommend using Sovngard font replacer by Mist or other replacer you like for more hand-written look. Used for my screenshots. I would recommend the Enderal font as well, but sadly it's hidden. 

I recommend to switch to Celtic icon set at SkyUI settings. 

Some great mods that fit "paper" theme:

- For now I plan to make completely different visual style for 2.0 version -

It will be more dark and balanced, with some wood and steel elements, and nice small details, mainly inspired by Pillars of Eternity UI. Most likely, it will have much less options, but with much better overall quality, and will cover all the UI. It is my goal for that update. 

As for 1.x versions,

Small additions:
  • Option with larger list in Favorites menu (done in 1.5)
  • Option with larger messageboxes for some problematic translated mods
  • Option with biege-colored map markers to better match paper map mods  (done in 1.5)

  • Bars (like experience bar at the training menu) and buttons replacement for all menus
  • HUD elements - compass and such
  • LE version
  • Maybe Racemenu
  • Console replacer with More Informative Console support (done in 1.5)
  • More texture variants and maybe text colors (partially done in 1.3)
  • Higher resolution (not as easy as it may seem)
  • Levelup, training, sleep menus (done in 1.4)
  • Prompts and messageboxes, like those from standing stones (done in 1.4)
  • Area map UI (done in 1.4)
  • More cover color variants (done in 1.1 and 1.2)

Lastly, I'm sorry for not so many English text on screenshots. Too lazy for switching :P
Check out user images for some latin text with different fonts.
And please upload your own screenshots!
