Thanks very much :) I am actively working on it, testing some other re-designs, and will keep you posted on the updates.

So just to let you know... I'm still working on a perfect version of the HUD. It's now being rendered with Cycles, for more realism. I have added a complete cockpit window, and the displays are now illuminated.

And here the completed new design. Alert lights are now below the monitors on the right and left. They will obviously change color depending on the situation. Since I'm using an image rescaler, the quality is suffering a bit... but you get the idea.

Me too. The original Deep Space went brilliantly with bigger ships, it really added to the feel that you were at the helm of a Python or a Boa II instead of a nippy little fighter.

OK so I'm almost finished with it. Pretty much all important dials are implemented, some things are still missing, but that's fairly quickly implemented.

This is how it looks, plus, info on the single elements. Compared to the original, I added alert light indicators below the secondary monitors on the right and left. So here goes.

agreed, it looks really nice. If its possible it would be nice to have this "glow"-feeling that you made around the scanner also for the scanner itself, like it was with the old deepspaceHUD. And another question, did you make this hud for a 16:9 screen?

pagroove - thanks very much :)

At this time it is designed for 16:9 resolutions. I'm still working on the fine tuning of the appearance... so the original "glow" effect should be doable.

Expect the HUD to be released shortly.

[UPDATED FIRST POST WITH THIS TEXT AS WELL]

Pleiadian Laboratories presents: DeeperSpace HUD

DeeperSpace is the logical evolution of the original DeepSpace HUD, with some enhancements and refinements. Having been some weeks in testing, it has been deemed stable enough for public consumption.

To provide you with its final look and functionality, please take a look at the attached in-cockpit photo, taken by Commander Pleiadian himself during final test flight before release.

Image.


Please note that the HUD of the cockpit will adjust itself depending on the current situation - this means that the content is dynamic.

In Yellow Alert, Mass-Lock:
Image

The Status Display informs you about you being in a Mass-Lock radius.


In Red Alert:
Image

The Status Display switches to show the amount of energy currently in the Fore and Aft shields, and provides you with corresponding icons.


In Green Alert:
Image

Now the Status Display switches again and shows the current set Hyperspace/Witchspace destination.


Image
Here you can see the screenshot of above again with its MFDs, without the markers.

I dont know if its intentional that you havent implemented the target enhancement features but if not, this code in you hud.plist under should make this work

Code: Select all


dials = (
	...
	...
	{// TARGETING ENHANCEMENT
		equipment_required = "EQ_SCANNER_SHOW_MISSILE_TARGET";
		selector = "drawTargetReticle:";
		alert_conditions = 14;
	},
	...
	...
);
However im very impressed by your work, for now thats my main HUD with the small variation you can see above.

Looks pretty good!

Since it started as a replacement for the no longer available DeepSpace HUD, I think it should be shown there: http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/HUD_images_here.
