Just while I'm bored while waiting for the Creation Kit to load levels/crash when modding Skyrim, I've decided I'm going to start posting HUD concepts.
Feel free to use them if you feel they would be useful. I don't really care about credit as I'll get plenty of credit for my upcoming Skyrim mod :P But if you want to give credit, feel free. ;)


First UI:

Quite basic and a little unoriginal I suppose, but it's just a quick HUD concept I threw together.
I forget to add a note for the bars under 'Weapon Name'. That's supposed to be ammo.
Basically just a concept for a compressed, slimlined, and easier to manage HUD.
The HUD's supposed to be a little bit transparent, but I couldn't be bothered to draw a custom background just to show a HUD. :P
Feel free to use if you like it. I personally don't think it's amazing, but figured it's good enough to be posted here. :P


I'll post another one or two concepts tomorrow, and might try to improve my drawing skills in the process.

P.S. Yes I know my drawing skills suck. What ya gonna do?

E: Oops, just realised I mixed up UIs and HUDs. If Dennis could fix the title, that'd be great. Doesn't matter though...

It's HUD concepts for HALO. I thought it was pretty easy to notice that. Perhaps you've gone further out of the zones of intelligence than I thought, Nick...

Anyway, yes, as I stated, those blue lines under the Weapon Name are supposed to be bullets.

The HUD is a bit tall, if that were put in game the flashlight and whole Health/weapon/ammo thing would be overbearing, no offense. I'd suggest 1) making the stretched semi circle a tad more minimalistic and elongated to fill the top better, and 2) not have that huge flashlight icon to the left. Also, consider putting the weapon at the bottom right as in COD, it's naturally where you'd focus your view instead of glancing up at the huge icon under the healthbar. The concept is intuitive, yeah, but not too practical imo. I think the ammo bar could stay under the health indicator since it's quite small, just be sure to not make them too tiny.


Hmm...
I'll see if I can find time to draw up a new concept tomorrow.
The flashlight size was mainly a placeholder though, as I'm terrible at drawing, and couldn't be bothered to draw a proper icon. :P

Anyway, the semi circle bars are a bit stretched, yes. I think I'll see if I can change the shape to be more practical tomorrow.

I'm not sure about the weapon. I think I might put an icon in the bottom right as you suggested.

Anyway, thank you for your input, Tiel. :)

Yea, Mis-read it. Oh well. By the way, you hit that limit the minute you clicked "CREATE ACCOUNT."

Looks alright for a beginner but as Tiel said it seems to be more about innovation rather than practical use.
E: Didn't we use to have a thread for HUDs?
