So.. I'm not really sure where I should post this.. but this seemed like the only thing related to content creation.. and while I understand that it's not directly related to the server.. the ui was made with this server and it's community in mind. That all being said, if this is the wrong place, please forgive me..

Vie's UI Tweaks for Neverwinter Nights 2
A redesign of the Neverwinter Nights 2 UI
Using Charlies UI mod as a base

I know that a common complaint for NWN2 is the vanilla user interface is cluttered,
and I know some of you are like me and hate vertical hotbars.
I sifted through the old forums that are still around, and mod sites,
and even asked the community about ui mods only to find
that none of the available ui modifications fully satisfied my needs,
so I took matters into my own hands and with a bit of messing around I put together
what I feel is a simple ui that strives to keep all relevant information centralized
and organized in such a way that removes the need for extra windows,
thus giving you more clean space to see what is going on in the game.

These tweaks were designed with the RoT Community
in mind and is best used with server UI modifications.


I'm always open to take suggestions and constructive criticism!

Code: Select all

 - Remove any old version of Vie's UI / Charlie's UI
 - Rename guisettings.ini in
    "My Documents\Neverwinter Nights 2\UI\default" to guisettings.bak
    
 - Unzip the download into "My Documents\Neverwinter Nights 2\override".

    When you connect to a multiplayer server, this is where your files will download to.

    If you use the -home flag to override this setting,
    then that is where your override folder is.

    To clarify this is NOT the override folder in your game folder!



 N O T E S
 ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
 - YOU DO NOT NEED TO DOWNLOAD CHARLIES UI
 - For 1.04+ hot-bars, you must restart the game after
   turning on/off hot-bars in the options->interface menu.
   
 - For the 'classic alignment value' to display in multiplayer
   the script file 'gui_vn_classic_alignment.NCS' must be
   installed in the server's override directory.
   ○ Without it you will get the standard alignment display.
   
 - (optional) If you don't want, or have conflicts with united-colors,
    simply delete that directory.
   
 - (optional) For compatibility with xUI
    rename override\vie_ui\hotbar.xml to hotbar.bak
