About this mod

I like my HUDs to be small and "out of the way" so I created a Ultra Small Preset for the SkyHUD mod.
For the like-minded : I have saved you the trouble of tinkering the .ini file yourself and created an easy to install Ultra Small Preset .ini file.
REQUIRES the latest SkyHUD version by Fhaarkas !
