Today I got the idea to make a custom heads up display. As long as I've been with CE I've never experimented with huds and trust me I experimented a lot. If anyone wouldn't mind either A.Pointing me in the right direction. or B. Helping me actually create the hud. It would be deeply appreciated. Here is my little sloppy copy or rough draft. (and yes I got the grenade indicator idea from Cagerrin)
The one on the left is the shield. The one on the bottom is the health (though I want to get the numbers more accurate and want to put a + symbol next to the bar) I'm trying to make everything the color of the Halo 3 ODST hud, but I couldn't find it in paint so I improvised. Also I think I should lower the grenade indicators so they're under that line.

Thanks. Also I was thinking of posting it there, but wasn't sure because I was asking for help.

Makes me think more of a Monitor, actually.

Y'know, maybe you could put the health bar on the right side rather than at the bottom, have it mirror the shield bar.

Monitor HUD <3

If it's supposed to be a visor, all the lines need to be curved...

it not like it needs to be realistic though, take a look at Halo 1 or 2's visor.. not curved.
though it would be nice.. just sayin'

But this one does have a curve, and not curving all the others is lazy.

Thats actually not a bad idea. I'll think about, but right now I'm new to huds so my friend is actually helping me. Maybe when I'm more experienced I'll remake this hud cause the first version will definately need improvements lol. That was a reply to rougespartan
