This mod is dedicated to everyone who has made a comment about it.
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 has been fully developed and polished, but it’s still supported and maintained if necessary.

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 mod’s Readme.txt file!

Vanilla UI Plus version 7.35 - November 9th 2018

Finally! I’ve managed to fix the wrapping bug in the original Fallout fonts! This would cause an empty line to be inserted in strings whose length was close to wrapwidth. It wouldn’t appear frequently, but was quite annoying when it did. After plenty of testing, I pinpointed the problem to DC Font Generator, the utility I’ve used to convert my truetype fonts to the game’s font format. The bug was fixed with a couple of tweaks on the font map. The fix is outlined at the VUI+ forum.

Another longstanding issue I wanted to improve was the mod installation sound at the Weapon Mod Menu. In version 5 I had changed the default click to the repair sound effect which was nice, but I wanted to mute it for already installed mods. I had considered it impossible at the time, but a week ago I tried it again with a different approach and it worked!

Finally, I’ve started working on a feature that I had planned when I developed the Original Fonts option: an extra font metric file that, ideally, will allow any alternative font to be correctly aligned without extra menu edits. The feature is still in its infancy and will require a lot of extra work, but it’s still nice to have a working prototype available.

The mod has reached a feature complete & mature status long ago, but I still support and update it when necessary. I’m now considering a Lite-HUD option as a lightweight substitute for OneHUD. I started working on this last summer but it was canceled due to pressing priorities. Once these are dealt with, I can resume with it.

Have fun and stay positive,
Axonis.

I hate to ask this, but I can't find it. Where is VU+'s setting file? I want to re-enable undiscovered location markers.

About the Vanilla HUD Remastered, even when I select normal compass during installation the undiscovered location markers still appeared on my compass. First I has to select VHR with VUI+ patch, then normal compass, right?

Oops, sorry, I forgot that VHR is overwriting this feature. So use VHR's option to hide them and I'll update this patch Nexusmods.com later today.

Let me check this one. They should not appear in any case, unless you enable them at the VUI+ settings file.

First of all, Thanks for making this premium ui mod. Its so great and more mature than I ever use before. I feel so guilty if I try switch to Darn, so VUI+ hold special place in my heart. I simply can't wait to see the Lite-HUD options on VUI+ because OHud so messy for me. It seem to me OHud was made to work with DarnUI rather than vanilla ui. Anyways it really great mod by Gopher but it would be great if VUI+ has a HUD options itself.

As soon as that pressing real life issue is dealt with, I'll return to developing this feature. Until then my mind cannot find the rest required for this type of modding.

In the meantime, I wouldn't feel guilty for Darnified UI. I think its a great mod, yes not as advanced or polished as VUI+, but its small fonts are excellent for those who want to add infographics on their HUD. So, use DUI and enjoy it :)

Hey, since the new update changes how the Hardcore Compass option is implement does that mean that I don't have to install the Hardcore Compass option from Vanilla HUD Remastered if I use it?

Yes, it's best that you don't so that you retain the empty triangle markers for companions at the Pip-Boy's local map.

BTW this feature, in its new implementation, was considered impossible since FO3 was released 10 years ago.
