      No, as you can see, it's entirely real life and not at all from an anime. If you mess with Arztotska, you won't know. BTW, not capitalising it implies some sort of partisan sentiment. You'll be talked to soon.


      Anyway, I don't like this. You didn't get rid of the obnoxious circle and the bars are WAY too thin to see properly even when not focusing on not dying.

      My suggestions for a better hud:

      Keep in mind that it's just my opinion, noone get buttmad, OK?

      I agree with toyota, I don't like those weird bars on the side. i think they would look better closer to the item belt like shield durr/hurr etc

      I think the circle you refer to is a remnant of the current HUD, not everything is done, in place or shown, so it could disappear or change.

      The bars themselves were moved for a few reasons but also bare in mind your viewing a large resolution screenshot scaled down.
      They actually sit in the players field of view a little easier there than on the bottom in more screen resolutions (especially larger ones).
      While it's a pretty subjective topic regarding what everyone likes visually, the new HP systems will see more stats being displayed by bars in which preserving the current "overlapping everything on the hotbar" method would get extremely cramped extremely quickly.

      You keep referring to the HP system and your making me want it more. Nice news update btw schema . Its looking good. I hope you all had a Happy New Year!
      EDIT: I wouldn't mind sending in client Info if you really needed statistical feedback.

      Oh, it's a progress report. Not the actual content itself. Sorry for the false hope and subsequent sobbing.

      I like the energy, shield in those bars, and it give a better vibe in there. Passing the new year waiting for an update on whats being happening and Schema make my day better.

      I don't think we will have those systems fully working before march.

      Woo look at those sidebars!

      Given that the indicators were already changed, I don't think we're going to see different icons for different types of entities.

      Looks nice :)

      However.... Please tell me there is going to be some kind if improvement to the chat box with this GUI update...

      At the very lest we need an option for a solid background behind it or something. White letters against a brightly colored background filled with stars is a little hard to read. Not to mention that as soon as you have more then 3 people talking the chat box becomes unreadable.

      I refuse to pass judgement on the new HUD until i see the full picture. Looks good so far though :)
