A much improved GUI........

Extremely clean and effective. I'm using with AP and it looks very cool.

Thanks for the AP update.

Definitely the best HUD you can get here! :thumb_up:

I've noticed that the sidebar texture seems to be missing in-game, only the buttons are visible.

After opening up the .cat to extract the "interface_template_blackpearl_diff.dds" and opening that in photoshop, I see that there are a lot of things "missing".

As in, the alpha layer is covering things other than the background. Three such examples are the sidebar texture, the backgrounds of all the window corner buttons and the orange exclamation mark that appears next to the text when the game has a tutorial tip for you, in the upper right corner.

Is this intended? I can't help but feel that I'll be missing some important information in-game because so many elements are covered with alpha.

Could this be fixed to show more?

It's about keeping it minimal without the sidebar, only buttons are necessary.

So nothing important is covered?

The only 'missing' feature is ugly sidebar but this is intentional.

HUD for TC is flawless.

I haven't tested the AP version of the HUD until now. Author forgot to include icons appearing after expanding the stock exchange menu. All texts are in place but icons are missing, please fix it.

Thanks for 1.1! I was using 1.0 for quite some time and the only thing that I changed there was that big ugly incoming missile icon - now I see you didn't like that one much either :)
Awesome UI - highly recommended.

Bolgimo,

You removed menu/click sounds by personal preference, can you point me to a quick edit I can make to tweak those I do like back in?

Or would it involve a total remake?

Thanks again for awesome work

Spoidz, download this

And open up this gui's .cat file. Inside you will find some sounds. Those are just silent empty audio files that replace the sounds you're missing. Remove them from the .cat file and your sounds should come back.

Marvos,

Thanks, that was an easy fix, I hadn't gotten very far and didn't know how many other sounds were changed.

Cheers

Wow, this hud looks fantastic. I'm glad this got bumped back up to the front page.

This is the most elegant and functional GUI mod to be found for X3 TC/AP. The radar graphic is brilliant. I am surprised it hasn't gotten more attention! It wasn't very easy to find...

Thanks for making this!
