About this mod

Dark and clean interface with escape menu. Meant to be used with IntuitiveUIv2.

Permissions and credits
I used ArenaSuite01e to extract GLOBAL.BSA and I edited the files OP, P1 and NOSPELL. I repacked the bsa and I used ArenaToolBox_win32bit to extract the IMG raw files now converted and compatible with the game.

In the Escape menu, I changed "Detail" to "View Distance" and "Drop to DOS" to "Exit". "New Game" is now just "New". It should be easier to use.

The improved sword and status icons were made by Pinkertonius. I used IntuitiveUIv2 as a reference for design. I was originally planning on redoing the map, but itylerlocke did a good job already. I tried to make the two mods fit together. Classes that can't cast spells have no magic icon at all. It looks better that way in my opinion. By making new (not included) popup windows as well, I realized the original ones look better. Simpler menus tend to look better in permanent interfaces rather than situational ones so as to maximize their own benefits (aesthetics vs practicality). You will choose which value you prefer depending on what your goal is.


Put the files in your installation folder (same folder as your saves).

If you want to make mods for Arena, you can get the tools I used on this UESP link ("Arena: Files" page). You will need to experiment a little bit with the colors because they don't look the same when you convert your textures.
