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.

I'm very curious as to how you define "fact." Is it a not a fact that Skyrim limits you to 8 hotkeys? Is it not a fact that my keyboard has 10 number keys? Is it not a fact that there are no scroll bars in Skyrim's UI? Is it not a fact that scrolling would be faster with scroll bars, PgUp/PgDn/Home/End support and proper sorting? Is it not a fact that the game requires scrolling in every menu? Is it a not a fact that navigating these menus would be faster if you didn't have to scroll at all? Is it not a fact that assigning hotkeys would be faster if I didn't have to mark items as favorites, then open up the "quick" menu and assign hotkeys to them there?

You keep arguing that my facts are opinions but you have yet to cite any specific examples of this. Please, point out which facts are actually opinions. In my youthful experience, I've learned that debates work a lot better when people actually address specific points, rather than making vague claims with no apparent basis. I'll concede that calling the UI lousy is subjective, as it's only lousy if you care about speed and efficiency. If you only care about aesthetics, the UI is fine. However, every single point I made supporting my claim is fact.
