I think I like it. Especially the right three. The left two look a bit too black-in-black, but hard to tell from one screenshot.

@ Winter+Mattn: Yes, I know, I know... I rather did that to bring my ideas to paper. Sure that's not top priority. Don't know if I have the time and nerves to to that scripting myself, but lets see...

@ Mattn: Yes, as I have written in the post, I've seen the althud ;-)

@ Winter+Wanderer: Thank you

@ Zenerka: One of my ideas. You can shoot, maybe even reload by clicking on it - moving the weapon can be done in the inventory as well.
For switching levels and soldiers, I like my arrows concept better than a list, to be honest - that way you can keep clicking till what youre looking for appears, you don't have to know the number/name.
Also, I'm not sure if I get what you mean by the last sentence.

I like the idea of having a spread of outfits to choose from, even though its rather eye candy.
Personally I don't mind so much about realistic or camo. A black armor in the oriental maps isn't exactly camo as well, and aliens have much too sharp (probably infrared) eyes anyway ;-)
Could you post screenshots here so we can discuss your designs?
That would make it easier than installing them...

Artwork / Polymer

As a chemist, I'm getting nightmares looking at this ;-)
But for the game its quite a nice graphic. Maybe just a little too colourful.
And if you'd like to have it a bit more realistic, try constructing it with (condensed) aromatic rings in the backbone, like recent high-temperature/high-durability polymers have it (like nomex/kevlar).

I've always felt the UFO:AI HUD should as well bring back the old 'UFO feeling' as look modern and less blunt. I like the current HUD (the Alt-HUD is a nice idea, but not really usable in my opinion). but find it a bit too 'heavy' sometimes.
Thats why today I decided to do some GIMPing (instead of photoshopping ;-) ) to present my idea of a lighter, cleaner HUD. I don't consider myself a big graphic artist and this is especially "quick'n'dirty", but I think the idea is quite visible.
I'd like to put this to public discussion and am curious about your feedback.


The current HUD, for comparison:
