But folks need to keep in mind that while the screen area with the dashboard and viewport may be smaller, you are actually seeing *more* of the game than you would without it.

I'll show you here... look at the first image, which is the normal world view (with the UI hidden) and then compare it to the second image (which has the nUI viewport and the UI also hidden. Notice that the top and the bottom of the field are identical... but look how much more to the left and the right you see in the nUI view than the normal view. The third image shows the field with UI displayed... note that nUI's user interface barely covers any of the field of view.

So... point being made here is that while a transparent skin lets you see through the UI, it actually doesn't help you see more the the game.

What people don't get is that I am, ultimately, an artist at heart.
My brush has two colors, 1 and 0, and my canvas is made of silicon.
