What is Vanilla Deluxe Legacy UI?

Before "Modified Vanilla" and "Vanilla enhanced". Is an unofficial TP/RP that would improve UI and other assets.

Actually, is a testing TP made since fall 2016, oriented to port menus and container/inventory GUI textures from Java Edition to Bedrock Edition more easily and efficient! Currently, there are 3 types:

Legacy Desktop UI: Convert base game interface to Java Edition interface style! Of course, not all screens were modified, but I will add more in future versions!

Legacy Mixed UI: It is the improved version of the HUD UI and inventory containers still with base game style, with the small combination of Java Edition and Legacy Console Edition parts.

Legacy PvP UI: The same between Mixed UI and Java UI, but the UI design is mainly based on Java Edition 1.8, the version most used to play PvP servers. Now has clear Chat BG and Scoreboard BG without red score numbers.

Currently, it is a tool that allows you to port Java Edition GUI Containers textures easily while bringing some improvement in some basic interface. And was originally made first in autumn 2016 (Started with HUD and Java Inventory) and continued to the present day with the current features.

All features:

  • Java Edition UI designs with 70% accurate.
  • Main screens, menus and inventories have been modified, not all, but I will add more screens in future versions! ;)
  • Some Java GUI textures ported to Bedrock Edition.
  • Some UI customizations by "ui/_global_variables.json".
  • Recipe Book Concept for furnace, only for Desktop UI.

  • [English] (en_US and en_UK) added in v1.0.0 (Old generation)
  • [Spanish] (es_ES and es_MX) added in v1.2.0

Upcoming features in future versions:

  • More compatibility for 3rd party projects.
  • And maybe... about Marketplace Screen.

Important Notes:

  • Not all screens are fully compatible with the use of gamepad.
  • Some screens take a long time to load, something like Settings screen, Play Screen, and it is because it contains so many toggles in UI code, but I have reduced them to the limit as long as it works on all devices.
  • When using an 3rd party add-on with new custom items. Some things of the modified UI will probably be corrupted, at the moment I can't find a solution.
  • Unfortunately, since the Ore UI (new UI engine) appeared for the Create World and Achievements screens, it is now impossible to modify it. So please, don't ask me that it's impossible to fix. But for "You Died!" screen, there is an option where you can disable Ore UI mode, it is the only one that will exist for now.

    is it working with 1.19.50?
  2. D
    In the changelog we have replaced "[*]" with "(*)" due to incorrect processing by the site engine (we will try to fix this in the near future). So don't be scared 😀
