[HD] Simplex v1.1.2 [reg] (clean & simple)
« on: November 19, 2015, 08:11:39 pm »
Hey friends,

proudly presenting you yet another interface: Simplex - clean and simple.
I haven't created this from scratch, instead it was sent to me by Bistoufly who didn't know the original author, though.*
I basically just rearranged the bars and modified some elements in order to make the interface even simpler and clearer. I also added support for HD resolutions in 1.7.0.



Features:
- HD resolution
- simple interface saving space on screen, yet big enough to be kept in sight easily
- plain element style focusing on usability, not beauty
- eye-catching colours making elements easily be seen from the corner of your eye
- no unnecessary elements, e.g. weapon name, ping dot or icons
- transparent menu backgrounds (team box, weapon menu...)
- light transparency in general (alpha = 175)
- optimized for 16:9 resolutions, should work with any resolution
- looks good with both "Scale interface" enabled and disabled
- two versions with minor differences (see screenshots below)


Screenshots:
Simplex


Alternative version: Simplex#

- green nades - ammo text - weapon name (- you also see the alternative cursor which is included in both version)


[Mirror]


*NOTE*: You need 1.7.0+ to use the HD version. If you still use 1.6.9 or older, then download and use Simplex_SD!


If you notice any issues or have suggestions, please let me know.
*When I received the interface, it was called "hnS1.9". If you are the original author of the interface or know him, please let me know and I will make sure to add the appropriate credits.

Changelog:
v1.1.2:
- moved ammo text so it's hidden
(only relevant for setups with "Scale interface" disabled)
v1.1.1:
- replaced scale.ini with mod.ini
- changed player indicator to white arrow
v1.1:
- centred bars
- added alternative interface version 'Simplex#'

If you have done that, please share your version (+screenshot) with us, thus I can add it as optional version to the main post. Thank you!

I can't really tell if its worth anything, mostly because i did it in 2min (far from pixel perfect alaign) but i recommend InterfaceMaker from the "fan apps" section - just select both weapon name and ammo, check "visible" and click wherever you want it on the screen, save and its done. I myself have custon font, so i made it look good on my settings only.

Ye, I do know how to do that. It's just that I would like to offer some different options of the interface so everyone can pick his favourite and can use it without adding/modifying/deleting elements. I can imagine that you are not the only one who wants to have the weapon name and/or ammo text as well, thus I would like to provide such a version, too. However, if you say your version is far from perfect I will just do it on my own. I'd still be interested in a screenshot to get an idea of how you (and maybe others) would like it to have.

If i were to choose the place I'd go for the middle - the yellow slider. I put the weapon name under the whole bar, because otherwise i couldn'g really fit in the longer weap. names. Ammo went to the right of the last nade, but i believe there is a lot of better ways to execute it. I'm certian that it should be somewhere around the yellow slider, because that's where your weapon informations are

This must be a problem with your setup then. The screenshots still are available. Anyway, I attached it to this post again.

Map look is made by changing texture of ash to black. Its not part of GUI mod.

There is few mods that change maps like that but you can do the same just by editing textures files and changing background color in options

You can download the attached textures.zip and extract it to Soldat\textures.
I will release a full modification when 1.7.0 final release is published.

Hey, just a few suggestions:

1. You should swap grenade colors, so regular grenades are a bit greenish and cluster grenades are orange (maybe darker and more vivid orange than the ammo bar). I suggest sampling the color from cluster grenades in 1.7.0b1 version and using something similar.

2. Can you make the interface centered? Right now it's shifted left of center which doesn't look good IMO. This is the biggest bugbear for me.

Thanks for your useful suggestions, L[0ne]R.

I prefer to have grenades and ammo bar in same colour. However, I plan to create and release several versions of this interface so everyone can pick his favourite. So there will be one with your suggested nade colours with, one with weapon name and ammo text etc. In the end, the devs may pick which one to add to default interfaces.

2. Can you make the interface centered? Right now it's shifted left of center which doesn't look good IMO. This is the biggest bugbear for me.
Yes, I will definitely do that! It actually could be done quite quickly but since this interface is high res and current IntMkr versions don't support this it's a pain in the a** to edit positioning of interface elements right now. That's why I will have to wait for SyavX releasing an updated version of his IntMkr2 supporting scale.ini.

Update: I added an alternative version (Simplex#) with desired colours for grenade icons as well as ammo text and weapon name (if you need those as separate versions, let me know). I also centered bars in both versions.
Screenshots replaced. Attachment and mirror updated. Download for Simplex# added.

Not bad, kinda cool, but isn't this idea done a bunch of times?

Regardless, a fresh simple look on the scene isn't to be hated on. Cool.

I didn't aim for an interface style never seen before. I rather wanted to create a simple interface optimized for usability and suitable for many players. Also, AFAIK this is the first HD interface (of that kind).
Thanks for feedback.
