Default Dark UI Mod 1.07

DARK UI MOD V1.07

Update History:

1.07
- Various fixes and smaller changes.
- Some button changes.
- Changes to commandbar UI elements.

1.06
- Some smaller changes to commandbar UI elements.
- More buttons.
- A few fixes.

1.05
- New galaxy map
- Some more button changes
- Fixed lots of smaller glitches.

Description: This modification changes the look of the original SE V UI to a darker style.

Installation:

1. ( Optional ) Backup the "UI" folder inside ...\SpaceEmpiresV\Pictures
2. Move the DarkUIMod.rar archive to your main SE V folder and extract it, answer yes to overwrite files if prompted.
3. Play the game with any mods.

Repeat step 2 and 3 with any mod update archives.

Game patches will override some UI elements, so you should reinstall the mod after installing an update.

Uninstall: Just restore the UI folder. You'll have to do a complete reinstall if you didn't back it up.

The download is 24'ish MB.

Have you considered making the UI more transparent as well?

It's certainly possible. I'm not sure where I'd use it, though. Got any examples of where you think it'd be fitting?

Any plans to reduce the "bubbliness" of the buttons? Such would go along with the darker theme, I think.

Yeah, I'm trying to come up with something 'flatter'. Working on the small blue ones for now, not sure if I should do something about the larger buttons yet( i.e. "Close" and the likes ).

What % of the UI files are included? I was curious to see how big an UI mod would be...

130 of 180'ish MB total. They compress pretty well, so probably around 30mb for the entire thing.

Hi there,

This looks great, but I am having a problem. I'm running an existing game with v1.20 and Balance Mod 1.02.

I installed the Dark UI 1.03 and the 1.04 update. The main screen looks fine, but when I browse my Ships List, I get a CTD with a 'stream error'. Reverting my Pictures\UI folder removes the problem once again. Has anyone else seen this?

I hope I can get to the bottom of it - this UI is a great improvement!
