A Fallout 3 and New Vegas mod that greatly improves the user interface without compromising the original style.
Install with a mod manager, along with UIO. If there are any conflicts, allow VUI+ to win them, and check out the Addons tab to see if a patch is necessary.
IF THERE ARE ANY CONFLICTS, ALLOW VUI+ TO WIN THEM and check out the Addons tab at the VUI+ homepage to see if a patch is necessary. Doing otherwise will cause a “Vanilla UI Plus is overwritten by another mod” warning.
VUI+ cannot be compatible with overhauls such as Darnified, but the the instruction above will suffice for compatibility with any other type of UI mod such as the MCM, oHUD, Project Nevada, Pip-Boy paperdolls, Vanilla HUD Remastered etc.
After installation you may open the Data\Menus\Prefabs\VUI+\ settings.xml file with Notepad to set additional options.
You can use the forum or the comments to post your issue. I prefer that you use the forum because it’s easier to track, but comments allow guest access and I’m OK with that. Please try to include a screenshot.
I may ask you to post 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 users who provided me with positive feedback. A few names I remember: Ladez, Ermac, Audley, Manan, Genin, Keleigh, Mortercotic, Darthbdaman, Bottletopman, Phoenix, Khaileon, Phlunder, HeroinZero, ThatGodlyFellow, EPDGaffney, Inthegrave, Jason213, Emptybell, TempNexis, Ozzyfan, Jake1702 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 the excellent DC Font Generator utility. Additional font mapping fixes have been made with David Cobb’s Oblivion Font Editor.
