X4 HUD Clutter

Post by jheck2722 » Fri, 14. May 21, 22:05

How do I remove the HUD clutter, without turning off the HUD entirely? I am somewhat shocked, that I appear to be the only one on the internet, that has a problem with X4's HUD. The blue weapons bars, integrated message box to the bottom left, along with the general color, and opacity of the HUD, are all immersion breaking distractions for me. I may just be missing settings somewhere, but how can I adjust the HUD to be clean, and simple, as it was in X3TC, X3AP, and X3FL? Currently I am unable to change any of the HUD options, and can not seem to find any mods that correct this issue. I am desperately looking for some type of help as to how to do away with the blue weapons set bars, at the very least, as they are a true eyesore. I've waited years to finally play X4, and I am extremely put off by the initial visual impressions. I do not quite understand why there are not options to adjust the HUD, and why it isn't simple, and visually inoffensive, as it was in the X3 games. I am open to all tips, and suggestions, but in the mean time, it looks like I won't ever actually play X4, so thank goodness for X3 Farnham's Legacy, and of course X3 in general.

I agree with you to some extent, although I enjoy the ambiance. Lots of time I end up sitting in the bridge of my ship and issuing commands through the map screen. (Which I find a whole lot less of a headache then the sector/system map of X3. I hate how much extra effort it is to pinpoint where a ship then issue a new order to that ship, I feel like I have to keep toggling through multiple menus vs just having one simple UI that I can manage all my fleet. (Though I wish my property was maintained as neatly as in X3) there’s pros and cons to both unfortunately.

Shift H,
Will clear the Hud.
Control H,
Will clear the ship.

Both are on or off, no finer adjustments that I know off.

I would like the Radar moved off the the Right low corner.
The shield and Hull bar moved to the Bottom centre.
And the weapons, set to one side.
Clearing my view forward.

The message block I want to turn off independently.
I find it not only very intrusive, but for 99% of the time it is
Telling me stuff I am not interested in.

It would be nice to have more control over the in your face displays.
As they are, I am bemused as to the logic.

Free the centre from all this clutter.

Ok...this you can resolve by going into your global orders and turning off stuff you don't want to see. Although you can't turn off the message box entirely, you do have control as to what messages you get.

You can do so already - integrated radard-something game option:

What annoys me the most are the overlapped map tooltips.

Any way to keybind a toggle to hide/show them at my will?
Ricarica et impera!
