About this mod

An elegant, re-coloured and modern HUD for those of us who still want to be immersed in the game world without removing our HUDs!

Permissions and credits
Gif Showcase

This is essentially a mod that utilizes elements from the Minimalistic HUD and shapes it into a more compact, minimalistic and elegant experience using either the Less Intrusive HUD II or SkyHUD mods. Strahlimeier graciously provided the SkyHUD version which includes cool features like removing the "Low Stamina/Magicka/Health" bar warnings and changing it into a bar that flashes slightly in the middle.

Here is also a quick preview video from the Minimalistic HUD page in action. Note that my mod resized and moved the elements from this mod, but the specific textures are still the same!

Version Differences

SkyHUD Version
  1. SkyHUD
  2. Bleak HUD

Intrusive HUD II Versions
  1. SKSE64
  2. SkyUI
  3. FileAccess Interface for Skyrim SE Scripts - FISSES
  4. Less Intrusive HUD II - As well as its FISSES Patch!
  5. Minimalistic HUD
  6. Bleak HUD

MCM Settings
Vanilla / No - MoreHUD Users
Open your MCM -> Less Intrusive HUD -> General Settings and click "Load personal preset" on the right. Click yes on the pop-up menu and exit out of your menu. Wait for everything to load and you should be set!

MoreHUD Users
Open your MCM -> MoreHUD -> Enemy's Level and disable the "Show Health/Magicka/Stamina Numbers" on the right. You are set!

  • Immersive HUD - Will work but won't be able to hide health, magicka and stamina bars. Thankfully Minimalistic HUD still incorporates the fading of these elements over time and IHUD will have control over other factors such as the compass.
  • MoreHUD - Compatible.
  • Customizable UI - Incompatible. Does the same thing.
  • Minimalist Dialogue - Compatible if loaded after Bleak HUD. This goes for every mod that attempts to edit single elements seperately without editing the "hudmenu.swf" file (if anything edits this, it will be incompatible and require a patch).
  • True Directional Movement - Currently asking for help to convert the assets. I will try when I have time, but if anyone has experience let's make it work.

Known Issues

For the HUD,

For the graphics (used in the screenshots),
