Default Mods to make SH5 play like SH4

What mods would I need to get SH5 to play much more like SH4 in terms of interface and AI? Being they eye-candy junkie I am, I really want to like this game but I find the interface absolutely hideous.

I've been trying to install the NewUIsTDC mod and can't get it working right. I edited the config file to enable SH4Interface but when I play the game, the UI button for the periscopes just put me on the deck (surfaced or submerged doesn't matter) with a fixed viewpoint. There's no periscope to speak of at all. The only way I can use the periscopes is the tedious method of running around the inside of the sub and manual clicking on them as if not modded at all. Also, I can't get to the sonar station from there.

I saw there are a ton of mods included with this thing, do I need to enable all of them? So far, this is one confusing mod to install, even after reading the thread for it.
