The second map looks better to me because you can focus more on the map. The glow on the first is too much. Best is to see how it looks on some screens with gameplay. Maybe take a screenshot from BF2 and replace the HUD with yours.

I know you haven't work much on it but why not try make all this glow kinda blueish like a hologram. It might turn interesting. Or experiment with different colors.

The placement of the map should be on the top right corner. It's used this way almost everywhere but i think that's the best place. Also it blocks a lot of the screen at the bottom.

I love this version of the mini map:



Great job so far.

Yeah, I like the UI. Nice, clean and simple. GJ Smile
Maybe a hotbar or something for the special attacks, but that can come later (when we figure the specials out).

Could anyone send me a 1080p screenshot of BF2, so I can see how it looks on there?

Oh yeah, I knew something was missing. Energy bar and HP bars for the enemies.

HP bar and energy bar are needed for sure. Not sure if the white lines are for the health though. It needs to be more distinctive,
But honestly i don't find the HP bar of the enemies good thing unless its for vehicles vs vehicles only.We can put it later on a kill cam maybe but during fight? We need a map to test it !!!!

For the objectives, they need to be angled the opposite where the left side is slightly up, and the right side is slightly down.
You should post another picture of the map upgraded with the style everyone likes.

IMO I think you should have a very small white contour like the first one, and still keep those little sharp edge things too, but let's see what it looks like first.

And I think the white underlay for the ammo, weapon, and Imp/Rebel reinforcements is a little too bright, maybe lessen or darken those a little and would look even better. I'm just trying to see how it would look in game. I feel like that bright white might be too distracting. But who knows maybe it will be fine. We'll be able to really figure it out once we have a working game.

I like how you put the emblem for which side the player is on, to the upper right of the minimap, clever. Smile

I also like how you chose red for Rebel renforcements, and blue for Imperials. Blue and grey are Imp colors, while red is rebel.

Great job!

We need to test this in game, so right now, slight color variation suggestions are a bit useless (not to say anyone's feedback is bad..far from that).
But stuff looks much different in game then on 'paper'.
We need to get up to speed on the code (which I'm working on Wink), so we can start testing graphics-wise.

Other than that, great job man, looks pro!

Hi all thanks for all the feedback.

After speaking to cam, we considering starting again from scratch but in a different color and design all together.

So, here a new draft.

Ill be using feedback from all these draft to help find the correct balance of different assets for the HUD

Here's a few BFII shots with the HUD disabled, might make the mockups somewhat easier:

I definitely like that one more than the first version, Adame.
I'm not a fan of large crosshairs, maybe try something a bit more SWBF 1-ish?
And you're missing the health bar. Where would that fit in?

@Gen_Rhys_Dallows

Thanks bud! I needed that!

@Schlechtwetterfront

Im looking at changing that, its definitly non final. Im wondering if a simple circle would do, perhaps with a dot in the middle...

What are those three circles on the right? I don't know....I like it, but I think a more neutral color would be better for the color of the HUD, like grey, white, black.
And you said it wasn't going to be as square right? That and the color are the only things I don't like about it as much as your orginal.

Great work though, Everything is starting to fall into place. Smile

Disagree with neutral, especially with grey. A lot of SWBF2's HUD is grey, and it's horrible.
I'm still for blue. Because Holo. And a bit more glowy. Like, the current one but with a slight glow, similar to a drop shadow behind it.
I agree with the blockyness, it should be a bit more round at the edges.

Blue might work. We'll have to see, I just don't think red because that's associated with Rebels.

Could have an RGB slider thing to let players choose the color they want.

OR you could arrange it by faction:

Rebel/Republic - Red
Empire/CIS - Blue

That would be cool too. I've always liked customization. I definitely think we should incorporate that into this game, also eventually our own custom classes as well or at least the looks of them.

Guys, if you're going to post images that DON'T NEED to be huge, resize them using this: http://www.picresize.com/


If they HAVE TO BE BIG, use the 'spoiler' function on the post editor.

Thanks!
