New Compas Proposal
« on: February 11, 2012, 09:51:50 PM »
Old One:


New One:


To see how it looks like in your game, simply right click on the new one and save-as "HCompass.PNG" in the MCCS_0210\art\gui directory.

This new compas is exactly as the old one, but uses 4 colours.
Red - North
Yellow - South
Blue - West
Orange - East

It looks very nice on my HUD. Did someone test it?

It was color origionally but went to the blue green to keep overall graphic consistent. Do you think more colors are needed?

That's why I wanted someone else to try it out.

If I was on mars I would want mine in color, but HUD's have traditionally been in that blue and I am not sure you would want to take away from the consistency given by that.

This will allow an easier time noting when someone is drifting off course, and probably be superior for navigation, but I do not see it as  something that would benefit the games cohesive graphics experience.

I can test some colors to see how it is received. Things like the compas and values for GPS etc. Unless more chime in here about it I'll stick to what I have. Lots of other things need done before final fluff goes in.
I may be able to add in a color schema so users can set the dialogs to what ever they want, we'll see.
Thanks for the work there.
