Welcome to MSFS Modern UI Modification
After 6 months of work, I present you today the MSFS Modern UI Modification for FS 2020.
The MSFS Modern UI gives the simulator an even more modern look and also brings a whole bunch of useful changes.
MSFS Modern UI 3.0 is available with the latest Sim-Update 7, both in MS Store - and Steam version and for all language versions. (compatible with current version of MSFS 2020 and Beta 22.214.171.124)
Let's talk about the changes that the modification brings to you.
Starting the simulation and loading screens
When starting the simulation, after checking for updates, a uniform splash screen is now displayed until the main menu loads. The overlays of the World Updates are no longer displayed.
In the simulator itself, now completely new loading screens are displayed, from modifications of aircraft, which I will publish gradually for you on Flightsim.to.
The redesigned main menu
The core of the modification, is the completely redesigned main menu. Here the display of the graphics was improved or replaced by new ones. But more important is that you can now reach all important settings directly and without detours.
These include the MS Store, the General settings, the Content Manager, the Pilot Profile, the Current Landing Challenge, the Hangar, the Logbook and the Bushtrips - everything is now just a mouse click away.
Of course, you can still use the menu navigation in the upper main menu as usual.
Even more useful changes - here they come
- semi-transparent display for the designation of parking positions, runways, gates etc. on the world map, facilitating the composition of your flights
- larger display of thumbnails for the aircraft liveries in the hanger
- in the MS-Store now 4 items instead of 3 items per line are displayed - a little less scrolling with the mouse necessary :-)
- the toolbar at the top of the screen in the simulator is now also displayed semi-transparent, the annoying activation arrow is completely removed and the response time for showing and hiding the toolbar is significantly reduced
A bonus at the end
And last but not least there is a little bonus for you.
In the weather settings for your flights, I have added 15 new weather presets. From fair weather flights, to icy snow landscapes, to flights through thunderstorm cells, there should be something for everyone.
The weather presets are primarily suitable for VFR flight. Visually, there are still new graphics for the weather in the selection menu to match.
Please also read the notes in the installation instructions for the modification.
Difference between Full and VR Version of the mod
At the request of the community, there is now a Full and VR-Version of the modification.
The VR version corresponds to the Full version, but without the semi-transparent toolbar, since this causes display errors in the VR version.
Starting from version 3.0 the Lite version is discontinued. The difference of only about 30 MB space requirement, no longer justifies the extra effort for different versions of the modification.
The Virtual Reality version (VR), is still available for compatibility reasons.
Installing the MSFS Modern UI Mod
Note: Please always remove the old version completely from your community directory before installing a new version.
After downloading, first unzip the Zip file.

I wish you a lot of fun with the FS2020 Modern UI Mod and a good flight at any time.
