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.

This UI is a parasite. I have tried lots of things, but it never lets go. I have yet to find a way to remove it from my game. Anyone knows a way to remove it?

so i just installed skse anniversery edition aka
Preliminary AE build 2.1.4 (runtime 1.6.342)

every single mod i installed with it works except skyui so can confirm this is bs and aint working nad that its a skyui problem not a skse problem. though quite frankly this is something that bethesda should consider making part of AE skyrim for pc users.

:steamthumbsdown: in conclusion skyui dont work with anniversary edition so dont even bother trying to subscribe and favor them till they fix this shit

Just got the anniversary cause I am vulnerable to anything Skyrim. Replaying it to get all the achievement. But goddamn I miss the UI from this mod. :droptear:
