Just made a Simple HUD

So, I just made this simple clean HUD, What’s your opinion, and what could I do to improve it?

Any feedpack is highly appreciated :smiley:

i don’t like the way they all use the same style

1/2 a darker color, 1/2 a lighter

I don’t quite like the colors. Honestly, I don’t like the yellow color on blue / green.

I’d say keep the 2 colors on the grey bar, but make them solid on the rest.

Here are my suggestions:

  1. Move and align the numbers to the right
  2. Remove the “:” from the text
  3. Remove the static “/100” from the numbers
  4. Make the “Guard” bar match width of the “Armor” bar.
  5. Ammo HUD?

Get your colours from this website: http://flatuicolors.com/
And use gradients on your bars instead of solid colours, here is how I use gradients on my scoreboard:



self.Gradient = surface.GetTextureID("gui/gradient_up")
surface.SetDrawColor( 0, 0, 0, 125 );
surface.SetTexture( self.Gradient );
surface.DrawTexturedRect( 0, 0, self:GetWide(), 24);


I feel like it is to big and clunky for my liking’s. Maybe try reducing the size of the bars and text, and make it more sleek?

I’ve been looking for a color website like this for ages, Thanks alot! Exactly what I like :smiley:
