This is a complete user interface visual overhaul for the RPG game "The Witcher". It also includes many other improvements/alternatives which all fully fit the new darker style presented by the Black Edition.


- Fully revamped UI and HUD. All elements have been retextured to be in line with the black/grey/red style of the Black Edition. This includes all sub-screens, buttons, menus, mini-games, and even the main menu. The heads-up-display in the game has been changed to a dark grey color, which looks especially cool during the night, and when in combat now the entire HUD lights up red instead of just parts of it (check the screens). In addition, all other UI elements have been made to match, everything from the meditation menu to the main menu when you start the game has been redone to make everything a bit more badass.

- Geralt's armor, witcher's steel sword, and witcher's silver sword have been retextured to fit well with the dark theme. All of these items are in high definition in comparison to their vanilla counterparts. The steel sword has also been given a custom blade based on real life photography in order to give it the metallic look that the previous steel swords lacked.

- The scar across Geralt's eye being replaced by a "wolverine style" scar on the side of his face. This was done because at the end of the intro cinematic he gets clawed by Adda and three bloody claws rip over the screen, giving the impression that he would have suffered an injury leaving three scars. You will also notice that Geralt's eyes have been made a bit brighter to match the way they appear in the game trailers and the intro movie. His face texture has also been made higher definition to match his new gear.

- Bye bye redhead fever! Shani has been made a brunette and also her green and gold outfit has been changed to red and gold. Now she actually looks like a medic and not a female version of robin hood. Triss has also been changed, and now has raven black hair to give her the look that a true powerful sorceress should have. Adda has been left with red hair, because it needed to match her in "monster form". Besides, we can deal with one main female character being a redhead now that it's not ALL of them anymore :)

Good job. I hope it's not your last mod. The game would benefit from good texture work, not necessarily recolor but surely high-res.
