Solano, the reason you are getting such poor reception to the hud (in my opinion) is because it doesn't look polished at all. It looks like you took an afternoon (I know you've been working on it for awhile) to make this and then came up with the BS marketing stuff for the "features" of the hud.

The only REAL change is the health bar. The ammo looks pretty unchanged aside from position, the charge bars look like they were done in about 15 minutes, and overall, it looks like you don't care. You don't HAVE to use a custom font (there are several huds that use the tf2 font) but generally a custom font is what distinguishes a hud from the very start. Also, in your "trailer", you haven't shown us anything more than bad rocket jumps and the sticky bomb charge bar. You never once showed the scoreboard, damage numbers, the winpanel, or other major parts of a hud. You made us watch 2 and a half minutes of the health bar. While a cool concept, it's not worth 2 and a half minutes ever, and especially not in this form. You should really take some time to design this hud and make it cohesive. Right now I'm not seeing that. Maybe add some color to the hud (as well as a custom font if you want) to make it stand out a bit more.

Now, onto the video. At the end of your video, you had a bunch of weird marketing things like

CLASS INDIVIDUAL IMPROVEMENTS - Every Class has its own needs. SolanoHud has its own special solutions!

To me, this is really weird. I've never seen a hud try to advertise as if it were a TV ad...Also, you never SHOWED the different solutions for each class. You showed stickies, rocket jumping, and huntsman (with a few other charge bars for scout and such). Charge bars do not count as a "special solution" for each class's "specific needs". If you are gonna say stuff like that, you need to really follow through and show us what this special solutions are. On my last hud, it took me 15 minutes to make the itemeffectmeters how I wanted them for each class. 15 minutes of time isn't anything special.

Additionally, I think the strange naming of stuff made people a little hesitant to like it. No one wants to see a hud that is presented as a "trailer". It comes off very pretentious/arrogant. Just post some progress pictures of the different elements that you are finished with if you want to preview it. That's what people have been doing in this thread for months. Having advertising-esque phrases to describe the features of the hud and putting in a video and calling it a trailer rather than an imgur album probably hurt your chances for a positive reception. I did't immediately judge it, but when I saw that it was called a trailer and when I saw the features list, it left a weird feeling for me.

I would say go back, get some pictures of the scoreboard, winpanel, spectator tournament, etc. and post them for people to see. If you haven't made those yet, then you shouldn't be even THINKING about making a trailer for release. Those are three of the biggest parts of a hud and no one will choose your hud if they can't see your customization of those elements without downloading/installing the hud. Also, while I like the idea of the health bar, it ruins the hud as it is. Everything is lopsided, nothing else in the hud looks REMOTELY like that bar, and it's quite distracting. You should put more emphasis on the health number itself because it's much easier to get a definite readout of your health from a number, rather than a bar. I mean, if a pocket knows he wants to have at least 50 hp before he jumps across gran mid to link up with his med so he doesn't kill himself jumping, then your faint little rocket jump ticks aren't going to help. You have to take MORE time to register how much health you have based on those than just looking at the number because it's so different and the ticks are so small.

In summary, go back to the drawing board for the health bar and the hud itself. Make everything cohesive and try to have an overall design ethos as you work on the hud. Have some sort of goal to your design choices. I guarantee that if you have a deliberate goal when you design the hud, it will come across to those viewing the screenshots and they will recognize that you spent a lot of time and effort. Also, you need, need, need to have pictures of the scoreboard/winpanel/other major parts of the hud. Look at any of the other huds on huds.tf and you'll see that their screenshots show you all of those major elements. Your pictures/trailer focus solely on the health/ammo and charge bars and I'm sorry, but that's not really enough to give most people a good look at your hud and what makes it different. I think you have a good start conceptually with the health bar and all; it's definitely unique and if you go back and do it right, you could pull off a really cool hud that I think a lot of people would enjoy. Don't give up, but please don't be complacent with what you have right now.

In short, it's not that good, but it definitely could be.

No, sorry, the hud isn't finished yet. Although I suppose I should give another progress update.

Unfortunately I have no pictures to show this time, but for those of you wanting the hud, I have some good news. While I am slightly behind the schedule I set for myself, the hud is coming along nicely. I have done most of the non game stuff, like the store, menus, etc. My current hangups are the scoreboard, the winpanel, and the casting hud stuff.

I am working on designing my scoreboard right now because the design I created before starting work on this hud won't really work with what the hud has turned into. I've gone through 15 or so designs in the past week and half, trying to find one that I think looks good, is functional, and fits the theme I'm going for. I think I may be close to cracking that nut, in which case it'll be easy for me to get that and the winpanel resolved.

Once I get these three major elements completed, I'll likely post some pictures here to show you guys how it's coming. And when I enter into the resolution testing phase, I'll give you guys a likely release date for the hud. I know a lot of people have been asking for downloads, but I really don't want to give out a half-baked hud; I want my hud to be as good as I can make it before I give it out. So, while I appreciate the requests, I can't give out a dl link just yet.

Since quite a few people have asked me about an updated version of my yahud cmyk edit, I've recently put a good amount of work into finishing it and creating options for customization.

Hud is fully updated for Love&War Update, includes Scoreboard fix, parachute icon, taunt menu and eureka effect hud. Includes I don't know how many small changes, so I'm not gonna list them all, but the options I added include Killfeed (top/bottom), koth timer (top/bottom) and different target ids. Instructions are in the small readme I added.

Thanks to everyone who has helped me with this and answered my dumb questions. If you have any questions/problems/suggestions yourself, just add me/message me and I'll be glad to help!

Looks very nice, I'm in love with the control points. I think you already have a nice theme going in your hud, with all the gray-ish colours and circles, looks really clean. I'd suggest going with that look on the team selection as well (similar to the disguise panel) and you could think about adding a few circles to the scoreboard, maybe around the team names, although I must say I really like it as it is.

Short question: are you thinking about adding a dropshadow or something similar to the hp/ammo? I always find huds that don't a bit hard to read on brighter maps like process

Edit: just noticed that the background of the playerclass model has a bit of space between it and the left of the screen, is that intentional?

*snip*

A bit too much of contrast on the tournament names, doesn't really fit with the style of the rest of the hud, specially because you have white letters on top of a dark grey background for the targetID.

Otherwise looks fine :)

[quote=Mr_Harvard]been working on the spectator tournament part of my hud, any positives/negatives about it?

A bit too much of contrast on the tournament names, doesn't really fit with the style of the rest of the hud, specially because you have white letters on top of a dark grey background for the targetID.

Otherwise looks fine :)
