Reticle HUD: A combat UI overhaul



The reason I’d like to be able to turn off HPs is because I like to see the active buffs, and don’t want to have two gauges for the same thing. Thanks for the heads up on v1!


Ah, I see. Thanks for the clarification. A lot of people use “Effects UI” mod to handle buffs, so I was under the impression people would hide the default health meter, or just live with leaving the default health meter at the bottom of the screen. But I do agree it’s not ideal.


A cooldown watcher was something I originally thought about too. The idea I had was to have an arc or row of small, circular pie gauges representing the abilities on your ability bar. But I tried placing eight circles in an arc below the mod’s existing UI, and it just doesn’t look good. So the feature is probably going to require a lot more thought.


For cooldowns what about using an ‘LED’ type graphic only with on/off states, and labeled with the key binding?

Oh nice. Thanks for the files. These are from UDK 3, I assume?

I’ll still need to try out an idea I had, to see if it’s possible to utilize the components without needing to compile the entire project using an old version of the Adobe Flash editor. I’ll try to carve out some time to look into it soon.


Yes, it took a lot of digging but I found a copy! Anything Flash pre-CC should work, right?


I’m not certain if it’s every version before Flash CC. Ideally, I’d like to avoid needing to use the Adobe Flash editor.


Are you using FlashDevelop?


Yes, I’m using FlashDevelop. Trying to keep the entire project as legit open-source.


My own feeling is simple on/off states might not be adequate. Some weapons need to save up energy for a burst phase where they use all their cooldowns, so it might be important to know exactly how many seconds are remaining, for planning energy usage. Will need to discuss further with @RoseQuix.


Eight? Am I missing one?


Oh, I was counting the potion too!
