Thanks for taking a look at this mod.

My gameplay has always been for medieval custom content and now after many many hours of work i now have a matching UI to go with my gameplay which i thought i would share with you!

The Medieval UI Mod is around 95% complete there are still one or 2 blue icons or lines floating around which im working on converting over and although i have converted every menu i obviously haven't managed to test every single one as some only appear under certain circumstances in the game.

I you do download my mod please help me by leaving any notes of old UI remnants you come across in the comments section and i will correct in the following version till hopefully its completely done!

This is as best as i could do a UI conversion from the sims medieval with a lot of menu creation by myself (they didn't make all the like for like menus). All images contained are from the sims medieval gameplay itself and there are none sourced from other sources.

I have no problem anybody modifying this or posting in other locations just give me the credit for the mod please as its taken so long to put together.

This mod will conflict with any other mod that alters the UI interface. The mod was made with Into the Future installed as the final expansion pack and as such the opening page is only modded for this pack, if you don't have this installed it will just show as normal until the game loading menu (i believe!) Also the Tutorial or Lesson pages have not been modded as most gamers don't use it, i may get round to converting these later on.

Happy Simming!

UPDATES!

V1.01

Corrected missing relationship tab
CAS - body shapes re coloured, Lines recoloured
Edit Town button recoloured
Relationship panel icons re coloured from blue

Wow, great work! It's not easy to make custom GUIs because there are hundreds of images to edit, even if you got some of them from Medieval, I imagine it wasn't easy to do the rest. Next time I play in a Medieval themed world, I'll use this interface to get fully immersed.

Oh my oh my, this something I'd been loking for for so long! And it looks so good. I can't wait until I add it to play my medieval save, and with all TSM soundtrack added too it's going to be so amazing. Thank you so much!

This is beautiful <3!
As for things that are still blue/old color:
In edit town in family bin the 2 buttons; one for show custom content only and unhide all installed custom content
While loading CAS; the family square right under
In CAS; body shapes icons
In CAS; a blue line right above sliders, for example ears
While building a house where no sims live; the edit town-f1 button from there is also blue

It looks great, but it seems like its incompatible with Nraas PortraitPanel. When the 2 mods are downloaded the sims portrait are invisible. I think because both mods edit a file called HUDskewer.
Will your mod still function if I use S3PE to remove the conflicting instance from your mod and use the rest?

I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t if you take the file away it should still work as normal

This is wonderful!

Is there any chance you could do a version without the main loading screen? I'm currently using a Sims Medieval loading screen replacement by ModestPixels, which I really like, and I'd love to be able to use your UI edits as well as her loading screen edit. Would this be possible for you to do? Either way, thank you for the fantastic mod, it makes medieval gameplay even more immersive!

Update on things I found:
Acquaintance icon in relationship panel is blue, maybe other relationships too. I haven't seen it yet.
Relationship progression bar when talking to other sims(left upper corner) is kinda see through, not sure if that is intended.
Undo-redo in buy category are blue, but not in build.

Love it! I want to make a small modification for personal use, could you share what hue changes you used to make some of the blue be orange/red? Like 150 to the left or right on the hue bar, info like that?

So I used paint.net for altering the image files, selecting the area to change I used sepia and the hue saturation to +140

Hope that helps, other colour changes are in the layout files which alter font colours and some shading icons. This is conversion to hex colour numbering which I’m still working through to fix some issues

This is an absolute game changer, thank you so much for your hard work. I've been using your UI for a while now and my gaming experience would've not been the same without it. Thank you again for making this mod and sharing it with the community. I've tried to convert TSM UI to sims 3 myself a while ago, and it was tedious, so your work is very very appreciated!

thanks! it was very tedious i have made loads of medieval content, some i have made and others extracted from the sims medieval thats never been posted for the sims 3 as far as i can see, currently working on a medieval themed world and the ui mod was a must!

i know its still not 100% but its close enough!
