Description
This is a minimalist user interface that changes the Adviser panels in the game by adding a bottom info bar and replacing the Navigator screen.
All backgrounds are vector based to give a smooth uniform look.
The interface was created so that you can maintain information on the screen in the smallest format possible without the Navigator screen showing.

The Navigator screen (GPS) has been changed so that it toggles either on or off with F3.
Hit F3 once to show the bottom bar and GPS, hit it again to hide the GPS so that you can use in-dash GPS unobstructed with the bottom bar.

Info panels use the same keybinds as default. F6 for job information. F7 for truck damage status. F8 for info panel. F5 will turn an active info panel off.

The new bottom bar has information shown for (from left to right):
-Running line information
-Mail
-Money
-Truck damage
-Current speed with speeding indicator highlight
-Current gear
-Fuel level
-Fatigue
-Game time
-ETA (now always shown with bar)

Navigation screen:
-Can be hidden independently from the bottom bar (F3)
-Smooth, solid background.

Information panels:
-Relocated to be at steering wheel
-Independent of the Navigation screen
--Unfixable Minor Issue: Navigation screen will not update animation when an information panel is active.
---In-dash GPS is not affected by this issue and will keep animating.

This mod was developed with a single monitor. It may not display correctly if you span multiple screens with the game.
Hemil's mod was used as a partial basis for this mod along with a lot of customization on my end.

Thank you, ptr1ck! Your mod is working perfectly in the game's beta version. I appreciate your time and energy.

I just answered your question ghost rider, nothing else.

The mod is updated. I removed old game version compatibility. Mod shouldn't break when game is updated unless they change the UI.

Well we can do is wait for an update. Mine how ever did not work in 1.35 EXB. But now we are in 1.35 Public beta. I will see when I get it there.
