A Fallout 3 and New Vegas mod that greatly improves the user interface without compromising the original style.
Install with a mod manager. If there are any conflicts, allow VUI+ to win them, install UIO, and check out the Addons tab to see if a patch is necessary.
VUI+ is designed to be compatible with any mod supported by the User Interface Organizer, such as the MCM, oHUD, Project Nevada, WMM, Loot Menu etc.
If there are any conflicts, allow VUI+ to win them, install UIO, and check out the Addons tab to see if a patch is necessary. Doing otherwise will result in a warning which is easy to resolve as shown here.
After installation you may open the Data\Menus\Prefabs\VUI+\ settings.xml file with Notepad to set options such as the size of container menus, the number of dialog topics, undiscovered locations at the compass etc.
Finally, you might try a game tweak. In default settings the Pip-Boy is a bit too blurry, and by setting fBlurRadiusPipboy=1.2 at the [Pipboy] section on Fallout.ini, this blur can be reduced. This is optional and does not depend on VUI+.
This can happen only if you are using a very old version of UIO. To fix it, update UIO and:
Please include a screenshot of the problem and a link to an archive of your Data\Menus folder. This folder doesn’t contain personal data and you can use an ephemeral upload service to post your archive.
To access this folder in Mod Organizer, you’ll need to use 7zip: Click on the Executable menu, select Edit, set a Title, set Binary to C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7zFM.exe, leave Start In empty, and set Arguments to the game’s Data path. Running 7zip by this command will allow it to see what your game sees, so you can now compress your Data\Menus folder and upload it.
VUI+ is dedicated to everyone who has reported an issue or made a nice comment. A few names I remember: Ladez, Ermac, Audley, Manan, Mortercotic, Genin, Darthbdaman, Keleigh, Bottletopman, TempNexis, HeroinZero, Phlunder, ThatGodlyFellow, Phoenix, EPDGaffney, Ozzyfan, Emptybell, Khaileon, Jason213, Inthegrave and many others I forget!
Thanks to Sébastien Caisse (Red!) for porting the original game's bitmap font to a high quality truetype font called Fallouty. The fonts have been converted and optimized with an excellent utility called DC Font Generator.
