Starfield got a stock UI makeover in a week
Starfield launches today, September 6th, with an impressive number of mods already available after a week of early access.
One of the most popular mods for NexusMods revamps the game’s stock user interface, addressing a major complaint with Bethesda’s sci-fi role-playing game.
The StarUI Inventory for M8r98a4f2 improves all inventory screens for Starfield on PC. There’s a new compact view style, more detail in sortable columns, item category icons, and lots of quality of life features.
The mods have really fixed the user interface of Starfield
StarUI, the Starfield equivalent of “SkyUI” is already here and gives PC gamers a much more intuitive and informative interface at a glance, it’s crazy to me how fast mods work considering the game hasn’t been “officially” released yet! pic.twitter.com/smZThoaMGm

As noted by IGN Starfield reviewer Dan Stapleton, Starfield’s inventory management is “shockingly bad”.
“To avoid overloading, you’ll constantly need to move weapons, spacesuits, items, and exotic goop you’ve collected between your inventory and your companion’s inventory, or to and from the cargo hold of your ship, but it’s crazy that you can’t see the contents and capacities of each tender container,” Stapleton wrote. and receiving at the same time.
“You’re throwing things blindly from one until you get a message that the other is full. At the same time, a large portion of the screen is wasted on a very large image of an item. It’s a strange and annoying step backwards from Fallout 4, and something I expect it to address modifiers within a week of launch.

Turns out Dan was right: the modders had run out of Starfield stock within a week of launch. And many other Starfield players seem to agree that an overhaul is sorely needed. StarUI Inventory is currently the eighth most downloaded Starfield mod on NexusMods, with a total of 58,545 downloads at the time of publication.
