Simple Immersive Visor HUD

Post by iamthemithras2 »

Hello. This is a simple HUD mod that makes it feel like we're looking directly from Doomguy's helmet. I made this HUD because I don't see anyone making something like this - a straightforward immersive HUD that can be used for other mods as well. This is my first mod though, and I took assets from an old Doomguy visor mod, and screen graphics from Brutal Doom.

This is purely for immersion purposes - there are no health, or ammo counters on the screen - just the edges of your helmet's visor, configurable backlight (either armor or health based), and on-screen blood effects.

This is perfect for realistic CQB gameplay mods as well - no more telling how much ammo is left in the mag - you gotta start remembering how much ammo a gun can take.

Features: (Settings can be configured in the menu)
  • * No Ammo / Health counter
    * On-screen blood effects - You can tell how much health you've lost by the amount of blood on your visor:
    • 75 HP - few blood splatters
      50 HP - more blood
      25 HP - a lot of blood splatters
    * Configurable Backlight - Either Health or Armor based. (Blue backlight if you have more than 100 HP, to simulate the effect of having bonus HP / or Green or Blue backlight depending on armor points)
    • HP Based - Blue Backlight over 100 HP, to simulate the effect of having bonus HP (gotta love those blue health bonuses!)
      Armor Based - Green or Blue backlight depending on armor points (Green for at least 1, Blue for more than 100)
    * Configurable Shape - Either a Classic Doomguy helmet style, or a V-Style visor (Basically removes the nose)
    * Optionally view current keys / skulls - change the size of the HUD from fullscreen, to normal (the - and + keys)

Screenshots:
Spoiler:
This mod is actually made through SBARINFO, I don't know how to work through zscript yet but maybe I'll do that next time. This is my first mod, so don't eat me or anything. But let me know if there are issues, or if you have feedback or recommendations.

Is this only 4:3? I played on deltatouch and it has a high resolution. Will you make a more wide screen version?

It's 16:9. Actually, 4:3 doesn't work well now that you mentioned it, I just remembered I didn't port over the code to work with 4:3

It should work! The screenshots I attached are all 16:9. Check your settings.

So i checked this out again. I changed my radio to 16:9 but it seems it doesn't have the required length to the bottom no matter the ratio. Here's a screenshot. Trying to attach me screen shot but it's not letting me.
