Elegant, PC-friendly UI mod for Skyrim with many advanced features. All improvements seamlessly integrate with the style of the original interface. Version 5 includes better crafting, enchanting, alchemy and smithing menus and several other enhancements.

  • Convenient inventory management with a feature-rich panel that supports full-text search, sorting and extended data columns and replaces Skyrim's basic item lists.
  • Version 5 extends this to all menus, including crafting, enchanting, alchemy and smithing.
  • A powerful, categorized favorites menu that still keeps true to the original idea of a fast, non-intrusive way to access your essential items. Eight customizable hotkey groups allow to explore playstyles that were way too tedious before.
  • The Mod Configuration Menu (MCM) to support user-friendly in-game customization. It's not just used by SkyUI, but by hundreds of other mods as well.
  • Full-text search and highlighting of discovered locations on the map.
  • Active effects are displayed directly in the HUD, instead of having to constantly open the magic menu. Highly customizable.
  • Gamepad support, and intuitive and efficient keyboard navigation.
  • Multi-language support for English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Russian, Polish, Czech and Japanese.

For a complete list, see the Features Overview.

Hey just to let people know, this mod will break if you go into your magic section and have a decent amount of mods installed so watch out for that.

You need SKSE for SkyUI to work. Also you should get your mods from the nexus rather than here, most of the mods on the steam workshop are not up to date.

At the beginning, after installing Ruby ENB Vanilla for Climates of Tamriel, I had the same problem with the lag, it took a few seconds to open the menu. But I solved it as follows:

1) reinstall the skse (take advantage of it from the website and install the most recent version, because I didn't remember which one I had)

2) I uninstalled the skyui I had previously installed, waited a few seconds and

3) reinstall the skyui from the steam page and everything looked as good as before

Now I have no lag, the menu appears immediately
