MinimalHUD for Skyrim

~~~ Minimal HUD for Skyrim ~~~
Version 1.3
This is the Full Version
Click here for the light version!

~~~ FEATURES ~~~
~ Movable and resizeable HUD elements (compass, status bars, etc) ~
~ Different crosshair types ~
~ Separate crosshairs for a) normal adventuring and b) aiming (e.g. when pulling the bowstring) ~
~ Separated crosshair from sneak eye ~
~ Factory presets for different aspect ratios ~
~ Layout Manager to save&reload your own presets ~

~~~ HOW TO USE ~~~
To change your hud layout, just enter the MCM menu, select a HUDelement
and change its size, position and opacity to your liking.

The Layout Manager (by fellow modder mttankard) is now fully integrated into MH and allows you to store up to 5 user created layouts.
Just select the layout and click load/save/delete.

The Layout Manager is not available in the steam workshop version of the mod!
Head over to MinimalHUD on Skyrim Nexus[] if you want that feature!

All credits for the LayoutManager belong to mttankard!

Like most (if not all) HUD mods, MinimalHUD uses a modified 'hudmenu' flash file (hudmenu.swf or hudmenu.gfx).
This is inevitable when you want to have special features like alternative status bars, crosshairs, compass markers etc.
The downside to this is that you lose compatibility with other mods that do the same.

MinimalHUD now features a Light version that drops its dependency on the flash file while maintaining most of its core features. It can still move/scale/hide HUD elements but it is also compatible with other hudmenu altering mods like NACMIM or simple crosshair e.g.

~ compatible with mods like NACMIM , simple crosshair, minimal crosshair, etc. ~

~ no different crosshair types ~
~ vanilla status bar depletion ~
~ no separation of sneak eye and crosshair when also using iHUD (see below) ~

~ user layouts created with the full version are NOT compatible with layouts of the light version and vice versa!!!
~ when using iHUD: unfortunately, without altering hudmenu.gfx there is no way of preventing iHUD from constantly calling „hide crosshair commands“ when sneaking. This results in constant flickering of the crosshair. Selecting „Force iHUD compatibility“ in the crosshair menu gets rid of this, but you cannot show sneak eye AND crosshair at the same time then.

MinimalHUD requires SKSE, SkyUI 3.4 or higher and Skyrim patched to 1.8 or higher.

If the HUD elements are out of place or don't look like in the screenshots, it's probably a conflict with another HUD altering mod. Please try the following:
1) make sure that MinimalHUD is last in your mod load order.
2) if you were switching versions (e.g. from frull to light) during one savegame, try to load one of the factory presets (full) or select "reset layout"(light)
3) When using the FULL version, the following files MUST NOT exist
If one or both of these files exist, make a backup and delete them
4) If it’s still not working try to deactivate all other mods (excluding iHUD) which alter the HUD (crosshair mods, compass mods, etc.)

It bit suck. I like vanilla skyrim hud, but I downloaded it only because I wanted to play without Sneak Eye (scoped bows :P), but now I can't change hud to original (wrong scale, wrong bar's animations, I can't even place things in right place, when I am playing on 1360 x 720 resolution). I don't like Oblivion hud in skyrim.
Sooooo.... It sucks, because It should make original hud more customable, but it change it all.
(Sorry for my English :P )

It takes a lot longer for me to search people because the menus lag with this mod. On my computer anyways.

The Magicka/Health/Stamina bars remind me of Oblivion the way they are arranged
