A small addon I made for myself, decided to share it with the community :)
Ever felt annoyed by the companion HUD taking up too much of the screen and breaking immersion? May not be a problem for high resolution users, but most likely for the ones playing in low resolution
Involves an xml edit to make the companion HUD smaller, about 1/4th of the original size size. And an MCM option to completely turn it on/off. Get MCM here if you haven't already.
You can install either one of them or both
I've put 3 versions for the xml a)1024x768 b)1280x720 c)1920x1080. Choose one for you, and even if you use a different resolution don't hestitate to try one but the result may not be ideal. Risks? none. No crashes, no corrupted saves, nothing. Feel free to add/remove it anytime
conflicts: only incompatible with whatever addons changing ui_hud.xml, but a merge is easy to do.
If you want a patch, just let me know
