  • Almost all the custom huds block more of the game

    I'd like to try the custom huds people are sharing, but all of them except for I guess the dire one, block more of the game screen than the default hud. Why aren't the custom huds restricted to the exact space as the default hud, and why is everyone making bulky huds that obscure more of the game screen? I know it's a tiny advantage to see that tiny bit more of the game but I don't see people wanting to sacrifice even 0.1% advantage in a competitive game.

    well it isn't a forced disadvantage on you for using the default one so why would it matter to you if others sacrifice any advantage they had?


    • #3
      It doesn't matter to me if others sacrifice advantage. *I* would like to have more huds to use that conform to the silhouette of the default hud. Also I am giving feedback that imo it's a bad design choice to have them not conform.

        That is why I use this:

        This is as little of the hud as possible. All files are set to 100% transparent. I wish I could modify it more.
        You get a little more clickable around things like the portrait but some remains unclickable, like around the money.

          Well that hud works... ish
          This is a flaw in the basic design of the hud itself and every other "custom hud" only builds to it and add its own color + acc unlike TF2 full customizable hud that looks more different
          That's why I prefer vanilla hud instead, the only exception is a blue hud someone shares and I like it because it fits with razor, the hero that I use at that time
