Show Player In Menus Skyrim Special Edition

Show Player In Menus | Skyrim Special Edition

by Dona

In Show Player In Menus mod, this SSE hack flips the camera to face the player. Includes choices for player and camera orientation, as well as character rotation in menus, as well as extra mod compatibility for mods such as SmoothCam/TDM, and works in the Inventory/Container/Barter/Magic menus. Oblivion Style Inventory was used as the foundation, then CommonLibSSE-NG was used to upgrade it for SE/AE.

    • Rearranged MCM menu for legibility
    • Updated translation files
  • Version 1.3.0

  • Rotate character model in enabled menus using the right mouse button or left/right gamepad shoulder buttons

  • Unless someone wants to dismantle the UpdateMagic3D method for me, there is currently no way to hide 3D models in the magic menu. You can conceal ALL 3D model artworks by giving them a huge offset in SkyUI’s MCM and moving them offscreen if you don’t concerned about hiding individual 3D models in menus.
Show Player In Menus Skyrim Special Edition
  • Using this mod in combination with Skyrim Souls RE’s bEnableCursorCameraMove=true option will cause it to zoom in/out instead of vertically tilting up/down.
  • FOV settings are preserved when entering an enabled menu.

Known issues

  • Enabling this mod in Barter Menus will interfere with the Switch Target functionality of Improved Alternate Conversation Camera. Enable this mod in the Barter Menus or the ACC Switch Target function, but not both.
  • When you open a book when the book 3D models are disabled, the book animation will start playing from off the screen.
  • When rotating the character in stopped menus, HDT physics do not update properly. This is a current Faster HDT-SMP constraint. A newer version of Faster HDT-SMP will be required. Skyrim Souls RE fixed the issue.
  • Cycling between the inventory and magic menus (default: alt key) while accessing them from first person can occasionally cause the player model to momentarily become invisible until you cycle between them again. Improved Camera SE PR4 fixed the problem. Investigating a regular repair.
  • When you start the sheathe weapon animation in third person and then immediately access an enabled menu in the middle of the animation, the zoom settings will be reset. We’re working on a solution.
