  • Symmetrical UI round 2: Photoshop edition.

    So I got photoshop and had a second go at my symmetrical UI. I used ideas from bQvleztar and Nail Azuma.

    Frist thread is here:

    - Both halves (left and right from a vertical centre line) of the UI take up the same amount of screen space.
    - Mana/HP and Skills all centred.
    - Mini map is the same size as the items/shop/courier/glyph/etc.
    - Removed unwanted space on the bottom and top.
    - Menu and K/D/A LH/D are the same size
    - Hero Portrait and stats are similar sizes.
    - The items/shop/courier/glyph/etc. takes up WAY less space than the new UI.
    - If they do put a UI scale bar in the options, symmetry makes the scaling easier.

    I like the positioning of the portrait, abilities, and stats.

            This idea is a good step to a great HUD.

              You should post this in the other thread as well, there seems to be more people noticing your old thread.

                Its way better but I still don't like the rocky look. It just does not look or feel right to me but I can get use to it.

                  I like it! I liked the new HUD but this is even better.

                    Yea this isn't really about the rocks though. This is more a positioning / size / layout type of experiment.

                    I'm pretty sure that Valve is going to have multiple UI themes based around one lay-out. I wouldn't be surprised to see Dire and Radiant themed UIs in the future, or hero themed UIs that you can purchase from the store. They just have to decide on a solid layout first.

                      I really like the bottom part of this new HUD you made (4th). I actually did not like the rocky design before, but now when I can see it from another perspective it looks really great! I would love it Valve made the buttom HUD like this, but I prefer the current upper part of the HUD better than this one.

                            OMG dude this is phenomenal!!!!!!! I cant believe that so many random dudes here are doing better job at this kinda stuff then most of the Valve employees.

                            If I could choose between your HUD and the current one i would go with yours no matter what. Great job, I hope Valve will actually use this.

                              This is really good, it looks clean and organized. I just think the stats panel should be redone (the old one was really good), but that's up to valve.
