Heads Up Display
Main HUD Components
The Goldeneye: Source HUD, is taking on a very simplistic approach. We want to bring in some of the elements we love from the 64 but also create some new ways of doing things.
- The Ammo indicators - standard ammo indicators will be visible at the bottom right and left (if dual weilding)
- The Health and Armor indicators - each indicator has 12 blocks each representing an equal percentage of health. If you bring up the scoreboard the bars will be visible, if you get hit the bars will flash.
Chat will be visible from the bottom-left of the screen as messages come in. A nice background-highlighted text entry will also become visible when a user begins a message.
Pickup and Death messages
At the top left of the players screen, there is a chat-like section that will display information including:
- Equipment Pickup Alerts
- Player kill messages (players names appear as the team colors)
- Specific round based alerts and informal messages
Overhead indicators have been a popular addition in recent games, and we plan on integrating a small version. The overhead indicator will be visible for friendly units, displaying useful information such as the health and armor of that player. How it will work for enemy units is still unknown.
