Since i learned that bullets go in the center of your crosshair no matter how much spread default in-game crosshair shows i started looking for so called dot UIs. What i found haven't really suited me so i decided i want to make something by myself inspired by GunRunners (posted here but no DL links), something minimalistic, with custom crosshair that indicates where my bullets will actually go. I based it on default chemical UI, that's why made it greenish and that's what i came up with:
From left you can see numbers which are your current level at the top and total AP at the bottom, next are experience indicators, works just like in default vitals window. It's pretty small i know, but outer diamond is divided into few segments to give idea on progress Inner diamond indicates your current sublevel. (note: you can still hover your mouse cursor to see exact % progress)
After hp bars is number showing your current AP, if it consists of more then one digit it doesn't really look nice and gets cut down. Yet to figure out how to make it look better, for now it looks like it looks, doesn't bother me really.
I've also made variant without experience, total ap and level indicators, even more minimalistic:
I might upgrade it and work a bit on it, don't know how much effort i'm willing to put into it. However if you'd like to have a bit different crosshair, like dot, or different color, let me know i should be able to change it and add another variant. I'm just used to yellow crosshair since Quake3. Default reticule colors also can be changed.
You can contact me in this topic, in game by PMing or messaging Exiledo.

And second one just in case:
How to install & use
1. Simply download the .zip file and extract it to your Fallen Eearth\skins\ folder.
Note for Steam users: Your fallen earth folder should be localized inside Steam folder, directory path: Steam\steamapps\common\fallen earth f2p
2. Start FE. Make sure your current vitals bar is set to 100% opacity, will be easier to adjust later. Open options window, go to Interface tab and choose new UI skin.
3. Grab crosshair and move it so the crosshair will be in center of your screen. Might be tricky at first but default reticule should help with it a bit.
Hope someone will find it useful.
+ changed xp indicator so it's divided into 10 segments as default one, not very precise but i guess it's best that can be done with diamond shape and small size
- moved hp numbers, i know it's uncommon but if hp is 1000 it might overlap a bit, needs testing i suppose
