You mean like the energy gauge being under the HUD?

I meant that the targetting reticle being a bit inaccurate. Anyway, it has errors, so as good as it looks, I'll change it into a BtRL one.

I'd say change it once you get new fighters, a.k.a the Claymore.

Re: RELEASED - Discussion of an upgrade to Sol:A History
And I can do that how exactly? It doesn't depend on campaigns on what HUD are they gonna use, because they always use the one supplied in the mod pack, or the default one.

Make two separate mods, S:AH: Prelude, and S:AH.

Not worth it. Really. Besides, it would mean more headaches for the more inexperienced people.

I agree.

It could cause headache to experienced people, too.

That would be stupid experienced people, then. How hard is it to install a mod?

Anyone can virtually mess a folder.

Yes. And anyway, why would you seperate mod packs, use double the amount of disk space, and have to switch through mods with rebooting the game, just for a different HUD ?

Well, you could simply create a "hud.vp" file and tell the player to place it in the SAH folder when necessary.

I don't really trust newbies to even know how to do THAT. Trust me, I really doubt that new people can know how to manage FS2, all because my confidence in them vanished after I had to spend 2 hours explaining how to use torrents.

And originally I was going to have everything in a VP, but no VP maker worked.
And besides, logically, noone would bother on putting a new HUD after completing 2 campaigns. But I guess I can have an optional download of the retail HUD if someone doesn't want the BtRL one.

Suggestion: live the actual HUD :)

Then you can have it there by default, and the people that don't like it can delete it...isn't that easier?

I think that Mob has the right idea.

Re: RELEASED - Discussion of an upgrade to Sol:A History
Leave the original ? Nah. SAH needs a different one, cause of EA. And besides, I wanted it to look different.

By the way, does anyone have the very old mediavp thruster effects, the ones that 'Twist of Fate' use? *hint*

Re: RELEASED - Discussion of an upgrade to Sol:A History
Okay, um. I don't like the use of the TVWP HUD here, it's totally out of place. And why in God's name did you use the Earth Defence weapons effects? :wtf:

At least I can play it now, though. Excellent work on refurbishing it. :)
