[Release] Clear HUD 1.3 and Sniper Sight for Clear HUD

Post by Tichy » Sat Sep 08, 2012 12:43 pm

Clear HUD

It's a quite simple HUD designed to be rationally organized, readable in every situation and to leave more unobstructed view possible. It works only on widescreens.

Features:
  • Dashboard with black translucent background
  • Messages and log windows integrated in the dashboard
  • Persistent log screen
  • Message and log windows, Scanner, compass and gauges have a supplemetary background to enhance readability when facing the sun or other light sources
  • Energy and Shields gauges have red translucent background for better readability
  • Weapon temperature integrated in crosshair
  • Additional energy and shields gauges under the crosshair when in red alert
  • Four modes
    • in green condition the crosshair and scanner are dimmed
    • in yellow condition the crosshair is cyan, and the scanner brighter
    • in red condition the scanner is yellow/organge to reduce emphasis on non hostile ships and there are additional gauges to show energy/shields status under the crosshair
    • when docked the message screen replaces the scanner which is hidden along with compass and log screen

Thank you :oops:

After using it for some hours, I realized that the log window font could be too small.
Those who want to change it, should edit line 277 (row_height) in comm_log_gui (near the end of file).

Code: Select all

comm_log_gui =
        {   
        width = 165;
        height = 52; 
        x = -248;
        y = -200;
        row_height = 7;
        background_rgba = "0.0 0.0 0.0 0.5";
        };
On my screen, I found that a height of 7 is quite readable.

I hope that the messages and log windows are correctly alligned on 16:9 screens. When I tried to hook them to the bottom, using y_origin=-1, I had a strange behaviour. When flying, they were in the correct place, but when docked, they were almost in the middle of the screen...

It's not persistent. I opened it to show how it looks like in the screenshots :)
The first two screenshots shows how it is with the log hidden.

I really like this HUD. I've just noticed that no-one bothered to add it to the OXP list wiki page, so I've rectified that oversight now. But I couldn't really think of a good way to describe it...?

Thank you! :)
For a description, maybe... "A HUD that tries to stay out of your way"? Or something like that...

Since there are no scripts or special funcions, I think that the screenshots could be enough to show how it is.

I also noticed that almost all OXPs are hosted on box.com. If someone prefers to host it on his account, for me, there's no problem. Everyone could do whatever he wants with it. Consider it WTFPL, CC0, public domain, whatever... :D

No worries mate.. anything that helps fill the 48+GB that's sitting there unused, is a good thing! :wink:

You are probably aware of this already, but just for reference, you can make it persistent if you want. Just set the permanent key to yes in hud.plist under the comm_log_gui definitions:

Code: Select all

comm_log_gui =
{
    ... other definitions
    permanent = yes;
};

I didn't know that. I'll try this when back home, to see if it behaves and looks better.
Thank you ;)
