I proudly presents my first HUD a.k.a Nova Lux HUD.
It is Full HD but optimized for all resolutions, both normal and widescreens.

Download :
http://wiki.alioth.net/img_auth.php/6/6 ... LuxHUD.oxz
(also available in the ingame Expansion Pack Manager under HUDs -> Nova Lux).

Future plans : Crosshair work.

BLUE NOVA LUX (Condition Green)
Sit back, feet up on dashboard, switch off the light and enjoy the deepspace.
Image

YELLOW NOVA LUX (Condition Yellow)
You've been Mass-Locked. I hope you still got a few drops of witchfuel left in the tank.
Image

RED NOVA LUX (Condition Red)
Fight! or run! (or steer around that planet/moon, you're getting too close and IT is not moving)
Image

New docking screen too :D
Image

MFDs (Massive Feet Dingots, Monster Fighting Dave, Minor Fruit Dessert...)
Image

What kind of dumb idea is that, leaving all the dials out? Also, "pylons", not "polyns". :roll:

I'm h8ing on the yellow one, mostly because the compass is so hard to see, but the blue and red ones look great. That's really good work, Vincentz.

I quickly started to use an expansion that removed the Cockpit HUD when docked and wanted something similar. The dials are no good when docked anyway, and I also wanted to keep the design plan for the rest of the screens when docked.

I just uploaded, and missed the pylon spelling. Thought I was clever and wrote Pylon instead of Missile. Guess I wasnt that clever after all :oops:

Try it out before h8ing the yellows. After trying it for a while I actually think the yellow state is one of the nicest.

I already got plans on the crosshair (gonna be 3 different ones related to the condition states, so prolly make new version after Easter.

I like the fact that the docked hud leaves out all the dials. The only important items, once docked, are fuel, missiles, time and destination. You've got it all covered. Everyone's preferences are different, so some will like it and others won't. But I definitely do.

Seems like there is a problem (donno if it was just on my end), that when in OXP it was ok, but when I did the OXZ it made filesnames case sensitive (?) so the red hud didn't show :(
And now I cant upload the 1.1 version because wiki.alioth.net is down. I even fixed the Pylons spelling mistake ;)

So here is the correct version once again from MediaFire :

It'll probably be backing-up - does it every night, I believe.

Right, then I prolly shouldnt pester it with constant clicking and leave it to do its backup. ;)

Note to self : Gonna move Shields a bit out to sides, and fade radar colors, for better view.


edit. aaaand 1.1 is up at the wiki/ingame manager :)

OXPs are case-sensitive on Mac and Linux (usually), and case-insensitive on Windows, as it depends on the OS filesystems.

OXZs are case-sensitive on all platforms, intentionally so to try to pick up this sort of bug pre-release.

Gonna do some flying (testing), then upload 1.2
Image

Update Notes :
Moved shields/fuel and speed away from center, so radar more efficient when facing (or straight above or below).
Toned down color on radar. Now contacts are more visible
Added "Next Equipment" to tophud
Increased Alpha for Bar-dials so easier to see value.

Edited to add. Nowadays you can also change the mfd colors if you want.
