You’ve been a great source of positivity. Thank you.


Vanilla UI Plus (VUI+) is a Fallout 3 & New Vegas mod that greatly improves the user interface without compromising the original style. It has been recommended by GOG and it’s maintained and supported.

Why vanilla ? Because it looks like old PLATO programs which I find consistent with the game setting. The standard fonts are also very easy to read by everyone including controller users.

The mod’s main features are documented at the annotated screenshots below but it’s better to try it yourself since it doesn’t affect saved games. Just make sure you check out the included Readme.

Vanilla UI Plus version 7.25 - August 22nd

After receiving the 5th request to restore the original dimensions for the background of dialog subtitles, I’ve decided to offer this option. By editing the settings file you’ll now see that the options for the _VUI+SubtitleBackground setting have been changed to:

0 = No background (default).
1 = Background behind dialog subtitles, using a fixed width like vanilla.
2 = Same as above, plus a faint background to all subtitles and loading screen tips.

The no background option is still default because I think it provides the most consistent style and it’s still easy to read, thanks to the extra outlining being used. If you really prefer the vanilla style can change the setting to 1. If you want a background for all subtitles, including the general subtitles displayed during action, use option 2.

The standard subtitle background looks like this:

Hey Axonis, is JIP Improved Recipe Menu compatible with your mod? I'm asking, because I din't found it in your recommendations. It is compatible with keyboy, but you would need to use the patch provided in its download tab to use it without issue.
Edit: using the patch may cause save game bloating, as I read a minute ago. I can't confirm this, but it would be for the best of every potential user, to look up its comment section on nexus(Keyboy mod - JIP IRM patch).

Yes, it's compatible and you're right it should be added in the recommendations.

After a couple of years I thinked "you know what? I don't have any new games that appeal to me now, so I think I will reinstall FNV and give it a new go".
Then I've found the external HD in which my FNV mods were stored died! :(
Shock and horror and countless hours of downloading everything again - NMC's textures are a pain, argh - I've noticed something was wrong with my game.
Yes, I remembered, the UI!

But wait a second, I can't find the UI I liked at Nexus site! Fear and loating in New Vegas perhaps? :(
After using the search function I then stumbled in your page directing me here.

So glad I've found you again, dear Axonis. Your UI improvements are still the best ones IMHO.

Thank you for your kind words.

I've had this kind of system shock myself and it turned out for the best because I switched to modern stuff such as JSawyer Ultimate, YUP etc. (I was using really old mods at the time!)

Could please add it to your list? This is a very useful mod and has no compatibility issues. I can't really play without it anymore :D

I'll have to playtest it myself, probably within the next couple weeks. The scrollwheel support is very nice, but the game already supports arrow key combinations for modifying quantities on that menu.
