Dedicated to the users who provided me with criticism & feedback.


Vanilla UI Plus (VUI+) is a Fallout 3 & New Vegas mod that greatly improves the user interface without compromising the original style.

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

VUI+ is fully supported and maintained. It’s recommended by GOG, Sinitar Gaming, The Best of Times and Viva New Vegas. The mod’s main features are documented at the annotated screenshots and the changelog.

January 15th 2022 - I have fixed the disappearing mouse cursor bug that had been reported by multiple users. I've also included a cosmetic fix on the Classic Font.

A Russian localization & translation of my mod has recently been released. Message to the authors: the updated file which fixes the mouse cursor is "Textures\Interface\interfaceshared0.dds".

Why does this not list Damage Threshold gains added by perks from other mods in the pipboy? I ran new game tests on different loads and the perk mod works fine in adding the DT change when its run on its own, but when this mod is added it won't list the DT gains in the pipboy menu. Only vanilla perks like Toughness are added correctly with a noticeable delay.

Does the DR/DT feature eliminate the base game's system for displaying it and then adds upon it?

Please open the menu in question (with the problematic DT display), run this console command: "player.GetAV DamageThreshold" and get a screenshot. You can't post links as a guest, but you can post the imgur code if you prefer to remain anonymous.

I'm the guest from earlier.

Made new game test again. Shows 3 DT when it should be 8 with vanilla and mod perk. This is the result with perk mod and this mod active.

I.gyazo.com

Confirming both perks were taken

I.gyazo.com

This is the result with a 2nd new game test with perk mod active, but not this mod's esp. It correctly shows 8 DT with both perks taken.

Edit: I tested player.GetAVDamageThreshold and it repeats what's shown in the pipboy, but in practice when testing coyote attacks outside goodsprings the game does apply the mod perk's DT increase that the console command isn't counting. Idk how that works.

Can't do anything about it if a DT perk doesn't use DamageThreshold :(

I ran some more tests and I'm certain the mod uses DT.

Test 1: Only game and DLC esm are active, no issue.

Test 2: Only game, DLC, and VUI+ esp are active and the issue now applies to the vanilla perk Toughness with its 3 DT not being counted. This proves the player.GetAVDamageThreshold command is useless since it just repeats what's displayed in the pipboy not the DT that's actually working. Testing damage from coyotes show the Toughness perk is working in this test since it reduces their 15 damage to 12 with each hit despite not being listed in pipboy or the player.GetAVDamageThreshold command.

Test 3: Only game, DLC, YUP, and VUI+ esp being active results in the Toughness perk's 3 DT being added correctly to the DT display again so it was YUP that was making it work, but it doesn't apply that fix to non-vanilla perks which explains my previous test results.

Conclusion is that the issue is 100% coming from the VUI+ esp being active, but I don't know if that's due to a conflict with something in NVSE or menus since I'm not a modder. Is it possible a conflict can come from there?

Please try this updated plugin and let me know if it fixes the problem: Mega.nz

I added Toughness and shows fine in VUI+. Checked both ranks.

Still the same result as test 2. I guess I have to find a non-esp/esm source of a potential conflict. Any recommended folders in Data to search? These are the folders I have:

I'm still trying to avoid a mass delete and clean re-install of the game.

VUI+ does what is supposed to do which is to show the output of player.GetAV DamageThreshold at the DT tab.

The most probable reason for the problem is that the custom "2.0" perk is using another means to apply damage reduction instead of DT.

I checked through Geck and it appears to do the same method as the vanilla perk, but even if that mod did something weird it wouldn't explain why the vanilla Toughness perk is getting the same issue with the perk mod off. For me the vanilla Toughnes perk only displays correctly with the VUI+ esp if YUP is active. I did the recent tests without the perk mod being on at all, so you can't blame it anymore since its only an esp.

If you don't have an idea where to look for a non-esp/esm source of conflict then I'll have to do a clean reinstall of the game to run more tests.

My opinion on Darnified UI is stated on this article Moddb.com for the last 3 years.

There's a mistake in the updated credits: the "scaling for icons" feature isn't LOC's, it's mine. Specifically, the custom

<_TopCropRatio>
<_LeftCropRatio>
<_BottomCropRatio>
<_RightCropRatio>

traits at map_menu.xml are taken from my custom cropratio.xml code which was copied by LOC with my permission (and credit). However LOC didn't apply correctly the crop implementation which means that there's now a huge targeting space around icons, making targeting difficult when going through a group of icons because the zoomed icon can hide its neighbors. See here: Imgur.com

So I'd suggest that you copy my cropratio.xml code (you have my permission for Darnified UI) as it is.
