After running out of work to do the Tutors gave me the unit on doing a HUD design. I had already completed the first assessment in the unit leaving only the Technical Design and Implementation assessments to do and so I am working on them at the moment.
Things left that I need or want to do are:
- Add visual trim (main task)
- Hookup health/mana to UI elements (not too hard)
- Change health to be a bar instead of globe (I think I would prefer this over two globes)
- Change layout slightly after health bar change
- Add experience bar
- Make mana regenerate (may make health regenerate too)
- Change grenade pickup to be a mana pickup
- Change skills to perform the attack (at the moment it will still shoot. I don’t plan on changing the other models)
Some of this work isn’t needed but I feel it would make it a more complete assessment response.
Update: Here is the latest version of the HUD.
