    See that statement doesn't make sense because even if Candles were dead he'd still be an eligible candidate for "of all time".

    But seriously we've been waiting on the GUI overhaul for how long now? and every single amazing suggestion had to be shut down because they all required GUI support. This is like the greatest news since the Anchluss of Austria.

    Might I suggest using symbols for the classes in the squad as well? And also trying out 7-segment display font. Currently it looks like a digital version of a nixie tube, but misses pretty much every other number besides the 0 and the currently displayed one.

    id say if it looks good if you just blend all numbers of that font do it - if not leave the 0 behind as is, it looks recognizeable enough. i too would prefer it over a 7segment display.

    but leave out the blue LEDs, i doubt that the intense blue glow is because of gas discharge.
    also why 500€, you get the tubes for less then 10€ per piece oO

    Yeah I'd be turning the LEDs off. The tubes are most certainly not €10 a piece.

    Without pure yes. Just copy the old one before the update replaces it.
    With pure no. Unless it's added to the pure list.
    Or if you bypass pure. No vac = freedom. Pretty sure nobody will ban you for hacking just to use the old hud..... But I could be wrong.

    Actually no. The new UI will be HTML based so the old one will be totally incompatible. Someone could however remake the new UI with old assets, but it would require effort.

    Ya, old GUI would have exactly zero support. It might work in some half-assed way due to legacy code, but it'd be completely unsupported.

    5 years later it will still be around causing problems.

    I just hope I don't run into another Warframe where the UI change made me cringe inside every time I was in the menu.

    But at least I won't run into huge AOE weapons that kill me just like that without any actual effort from the shooter OH WAIT

    Don't worry, I'm going to keep the layout mostly the same as the old HUD. I just wanted something that takes up less space and looks a bit more "modern", enough to attract new players.
    Also, I did try to make the ammo display look like a Nixie tube, but it turned out to be an unrecognizable mess because of the font.
