I think the actual stat numbers should be bolded and a different color so they stand out better. Just my opinion.

Me likes, but methinks it may be a bit out of my current abilities. We are a good way from release though, so that leaves plenty of time to get it figured out :)

Honestly, I never like to see relief on a HUD, but maybe that's only my opinion.

It looks kind of strange. The shapes and the placement are nice tho. Add a bit of transparency and a little noise. Then it'll look more like a holographic HUD that is projected on the view. (Just my idea.)

im with sniper fan on this one make it more like your holographic monitors. (wait i said that b4 oops.) as far as the shape and outline i like it. but i think some more transparency could really do it some benefit.

at the end of the day probably should think about making the hud color and transparency customizable right in game. and if you really want to that extra extra mile have several different layouts to choose from right in game. however frankly you don't have to do any of this someone will either do it for you or everyone will be happy or put up with it and enjoy your game. :)

also one more note the nova cor thing kinda seems unnecessary. i know im playing nova cor unless that pertains to the story some how. like its a brand name or somthing.

Novacor is a company name. Novacor manufactured weapons will also have the logo.

Yep, its the Corporation name that we are dealing with in the Mod. The Fringe refers to the universe Ive created for this Mod to take place in, and there will be more to follow based in the same universe but probably not pertaining to the NovaCor story.

As for the HUD, this is probably the thing we will have the most divison between consumers in. I will include several variations at release, so you can choose from at least 3 styles, and of course, some may even make their own HUDs.

We may throw some concepts out here and there, but in the long run we probably wont focus too much on getting the HUD all straightened out until we are done with more of the bigger things, like maps and weapons and NPCs. After that, we can focus more efforts on a super-awesome HUD :D Until then, you may see several variations as we test other things and take screens, and over time we will figure out what the majority likes, then make some alternates for the 2nd and 3rd favorites.

I thought I would make a HUD concept which is fairly compact and looks sci-fi. Here is the result.
