Enhanced Skyrim UI

Skyrim Nexus now offers version 1.0 of SkyUI, a user interface enhancement for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Bethesda's RPG sequel (thanks Jerykk). Here's word:

SkyUI is mod that aims to improve Skyrim's User Interface by making it easier to use with mouse and keyboard, less wasteful of available screen space and nicer to look at.

We do all that while keeping true to the style of the original UI, so new and old components are integrated seamlessly.

It is not our goal to re-create the complete interface from scratch. Instead we try to identify and change areas that need improvement, while leaving the things that are already good alone.

Yes, I agree with your points but that does not make them facts. Most players of Skyrim probably agree with you. They're still not facts

We're not writing a thesis here so who cares? Some of what he said likely might fit the dictionary definition of factual. The flip side to what you said is the "that's just opinion" defense. The user interface poorly conveys information and requires too much scrolling, that is factual enough for me and no one has refuted even a single thing Jerykk has said. It seems to me people are splitting hairs over nothing substantial, presumably because they can't address what he said.

Here's a fact - this is an optional mod that only requires a benign script extender that has no known compatibility or stability problems. People should try it out for themselves so they can see just how wide the gulf is between what Bethesda implemented and proper user interface design.
