I’m in the smallish group of apparent gaming blockheads who didn’t mind Skyrim’s stripped-down user interface. If you’re part of the majority who wanted something more traditional (that is, spreadsheet-style) Sky UI may be the most sophisticated Skyrim mod out there (also the most endorsed by mod site Skyrim Nexus’s last count, with nearly 10,000 recommends to date). It’s a full overhaul of the interface that aims to make it “easier to use with mouse and keyboard, less wasteful of available screen space and nicer to look at.” As you can see from the shot above, it basically drops things into an Oblivion-esque series of columns with sub-categorical details and the option to quickly tab between categories, speeding your access to information. If you’re of the “give it to me all at once” persuasion, this is easily the most important mod you’ll pull down for the game.
