Skyrim is still going strong despite being more than a decade old. While the game is enormous and spans a vast open world for gamers to explore, Skyrim owes this success to the modding community. In a way, Skyrim is virtually a never-ending game. One of the most sought-after mods is SkyUI.
SkyUI is an interface mod that has completely overhauled the clunky user interface of Skyrim. SkyUI is much more intuitive for mouse and keyboard players and is aesthetically superior to the original user interface. The mod is so efficient that it has become a platform for other mods in Skyrim.
