    HUD design

    Post by TypingWithMyDix on Mon Jul 25, 2011 4:59 am

    What do you guys think of this for the basic design of the health bar?



    If you guys are okay with the design I'll work on making it look nicer.

    I figured there was no use prettying it up if you guys wanted to stick with the standard legends HUD style >_>

    I think the original one looks nicer.
    This is a bit too much to bear.

    It's quite big and eye-catching, a bit too much for me. I suggest taking a look at the MML1 HUD sprite-work and going from there.

    Speaking of HUD's how bout the "shield" system? Are we going to implement what Capcom took off the 2nd game or just go with how it went with the 2nd?

    Also, I suggest we change the weapon HUD this time. Legends 2 was..meh though the claw/pick-up HUD was nifty.

    Minor adjustments aside, I don't see the need to make a drastic change—the things that need drastic improvements are more related to greater things, not to lesser ones.

    I quite like this design. As long as you make it look nicer and more mechanical, I think it'd be awesome.

    That circle in your design is making me curious. Could we use something like that for some sort of item, like a Sub Tank or Shield. (Though I was hoping to get rid of the Shield like in MML2.)

    We have the Sub Tank—it's called the Energy Canteen, which you can access from the items menu. And, tbh, the shield system wasn't bad at all—it let you take a few minor hits without beginning to take measurable damage to yourself, which made things a bit more convenient. That circle is usually used to tell you when a Reaverbot has spotted you.

    I personally disliked how the health bar looked on the prototype version, it was so simple, and that little circle which worked as radar was almost indistinguishable.
    TypingWithMyDix design is pretty good for starters, as ONLYUSEmeFEET commented, a more mechanical look (silver colored, adding rivets and such) would make a big difference.
    That circle is usually used to tell you when a Reaverbot has spotted you.
    In MML2 it tells you when a Reaverbot is nearby but out of your visual range, regardless if they spotted you or not.

    We could always do the same, but with something based more off of the Legends 1/2 bar: more circular and less sleek in a linear way.

    I went with the sleeker more linear design because it'll be easier to produce similar and consistent buttons and HUD elements.

    As for giving it a more mechanical look, I was planning to add rivets and panels and such later on, the color really wasn't a big deal either, I'm fine with making it silver/grey.

    ...not to be blunt, but doesn't that HUD looks kinda like the HUD that was used in the vids that were demonstrating the MML3 Prototype? Just putting it out there...

    It's currently about as simplistic as the one shown in the Prototype, lol. I'm a series veteran and, naturally, I don't see anything wrong with the Legends 1/2 bar and neither do I feel the need to replace this HUD element.

    I think we should just go with the one that we saw on in the Prototype version videos.
    It looks similar to the old ones (In MML1 and MML2) but still manages to look slightly different.

    keep it classic. Maybe add an indicator for the shield.

    I'd rather take the MegaMan Legends 2 route and avoid the shield altogether.
