(abandoned) RPG HUD Neat

This MOD gives a polished look to the game. It can display health, hunger and sanity in bar form above the inventory. It also gives the possibility to add extra equipment slots for backpacks and amulets, increase the size of containers, monitor temperature and naughtiness, and much more. You can customize it in game, through the mods screen. More details below.

Compatible with "Reign of Giants" and "Shipwrecked".

If you need an older version of my mods, here's a google drive link.

NB : When using my other mod "Always on Status", custom badges are automatically turned off to avoid crashes.


You can customize the options through the game's mods screen.

- Custom badges : Yes/No
- Backpack slot : Yes/No
- Amulet slot : Yes/No

- Inventory size : 15, 25, 45

- Naughtiness meter : On/Off
- Temperature : On/Off - Celsius/Fahrenheit
- Wetness value : Hover/Always show

- Clock text : Hover/Always show (doesn't work with controller)
- Corner shortcuts (pause, map, rotate) : Show/Hide

- Piggyback speed penalty : Yes/No
- Backpacks size : Default/Large (backpack : 10 - piggyback : 14 - Krampus sack : 20)
- Storable backpacks : Yes/No
- Storable icepack : Yes/No
- Storable "Chef Pouch" : Yes/No
- Containers size (chest and icebox, not chester) : Default/Large (16)
- Custom Slot Color : Yes/No

A few other changes have been made for convenience or esthetics.

- Custom slot colors (chest, chester, icebox, crock pot) and custom equippable slots background.
- Added keyboard shortcuts : the R button shows/hides the crafting tab and the B button opens/closes the backpack .
- You can zoom out your view more without the game pushing it back to default.
- New art for some UI elements (inventory, backpacks..).

- High chance of incompatibility with mods that modify backpacks, inventory slots, equipment slots or chests.
- Not compatible with mods that change badges (health/sanity/hunger) unless you don't use RPG HUD's cutom badges.
- Compatible with Always on Status BUT custom badges are turned off automatically to avoid crashes.
- If your game crashes, make sure your game is up to date first then try runnig this mod alone. If it works alone and crashes with another mod, it means they are not compatible. You can let me and the other mod's author know about it.

When using a controller, the backpack content will be displayed in a single line underneath the inventory like in the vanilla game. However, since you can have very large backpacks, and in order to keep the UI nice and clean, the backpack line will never exceed the inventory/equipment line. Keep that in mind when customizing the options.

Example : 15 slot inventory, no amulet/backpack slot : the line is composed of 15+3 = 18 slots. So a larger Krampus's sack (20 slots instead of 14) would be sized down to 18 slots aswell.

Minor issue : if you disable your controller while in game, the very last 5 slots of your backpack may be inaccessible (only for the 25-slot version + Krampus's sack + bigger backpacks option). Just reload your save to fix that.

Q : Will you port this mod to DS Together ?
A : No. I won't be making any more mods. But if someone wanted to port my DS mods to DS Together, that's fine with me.

Q : How can I help you ?
A : You can give me feedback on glitches and crashes down below. If you are interested in testing RPG HUD before official releases, I created a steam group just for that. I'll put the newest files there. But you need to know that they will be in beta state and I would appreciate feedback aswell. Here's the link to the group : Kiopho's Beta Testing.

I use only the neat HUD cause other options are like cheating with extra slots or equipment slots... I most liked the vision of hp sanity and hunger on bot above the inventory, temperature, naughtiness and wetness...
And the most amazing part of it it's the zoom Out , is there any mods that have only the zoom?
Cause it make my game crash even If I create a new one
