Container UI Tweak

When interacting with containers, move the inventory and container windows so they don't obscure the area near the player.

This is a purely client-side mod and should be compatible with all other mods.

*** TL;DR: Starbound v1.1 saves your inventory window location and puts the container window 4 pixels to the right. This mod changes 4 pixels to 160 pixels, which means you must manually move the inventory window to the left ONCE ***

Starbound v1.1: The devs have quietly changed the way window placement works: The game now seems to remember where you place your inventory window and container windows are positioned relative to the right edge of the inventory window. Unfortunately, the inventory window is reset to the center when you exit and re-enter the game world.

I'm going to call that a BUG in Chucklefish's code--and because of it, you must now move the inventory window to the left manually, once every game session. And given that bug, this mod still functions identically as before--creating a 160-pixel space between the inventory and container windows.


"My tooltips are cut off... can you fix these too?"

I may already have :) Please see the UI Tweak Collection here:


"But you can already do this?"

Yes, you can move the windows manually--but they reset every time you interact with a container or merchant.


"I want to change the gap size..."

Go to the Starbound Community Mod version and follow the customization instructions:


"Is this available outside of Steam Workshop?"

Yes, click the link above.

Doesn't work when you open 128 slots containers. It just overlaps your inventory window.

Needs a fix, sometimes the mod just stops working and you need to reinstall it for it to work just a little again.

"This works exactly as it's supposed to. Those saying it doesn't haven't figured out how this works. After installing mod and booting up the game, open up your inventory window by pressing whichever key you've set it to. Once the window is open, drag that window to the side (away from the middle) and close the inventory. Now if you interact with any chests or storages, their tab will be 160px away from your inventory tab." -JohnnySabu May 15 @ 12:55pm

He's right you know.
