GUI concepts Hello, new forum member here. I have some usable skill in Photoshop, so I made a few HUD concepts for Empires some time ago. Let's get straight to the point. Here they are: I first went for a BF-like, digital-looking, "immersive" design, with glows and scanlines and stuff, but it turned out to be too bright for outdoor locations, and the sheer amount of information the HUD needs to display makes it a poor choice. http://i2.minus.com/iJTntxi7JTjqJ.png Full resolution: http://i.minus.com/ipWhYsrfXCfTB.png That said, I made another one, with translucent black boxes to make it easier to read in bright environments. However, this choice results in a cluttered and (sadly) not-as-awesome HUD. http://i.minus.com/ibjZ0N3tYOPM5s.png Also, apologies for the "AP". I kept thinking of Fallout when I made these. Oh well, "action points" does sound nice too, doesn't it? With both decides choices having their pros and cons, I'm openly looking for suggestions. If these concepts are considered to have potential by the community, I might go on and create concepts for everything, including the main menu and in-game GUI. I hope my work can contribute a bit to one of my favorite mods, and thank you for taking your time to read this!
