Are there any plans in the near future to port over some of the HUD and Battle Indicators from the PC version? Especially with the introduction of the new gen consoles.

 

Stuff like this:

 

https://worldoftanks...s/916-features/

 

https://worldoftanks...ws/9171-damage/

 

Directional indicators colour coded to red for damage, black for block, and orange for module damage would be wonderful.

 

Furthermore the more detailed HUD including on screen of team mate and enemy tanks right on the HUD is long overdue, fumbling with the map and then another tab to see list of tanks is silly.

 

You guys haven't commented on future HUD improvements, could you let us know what the plan is with the HUD?

 

Edit:

 

As per stated by minto in this post:

 

http://forum-console...20#entry5220820

 

 

What would you guys like to see from a future HUD overhaul.

 

Do you think it should be a priority?

 

Someone suggested I add a question about whether the people voting in the poll have been exposed to the PC HUD.

 

 

Post and give a suggestion, i'll add it to the poll.

 

 

So far:

 

1) A direct port from the PC version

 

2) Pre 6.0

 

3) Ribbons

Hello! On the wish list, there are plans for a WW2 specific HUD. No eta on when we will expect that though.

That sounds awesome!! Please make it look very similar or identical the HUD we had pre-6.0   ;)

Thanks for replying.

 

Will it be similar or inspired by the PC HUD in any way?

Yes, the game was far more legible, playable, and enjoyable before it was "fixed" by Krampus' little helpers.

Oh yes please.

 

Can you twist some arms to get it up the priority list?

 

Also, what's the chance of losing the unnecessary XP indicator that covers the important numbers in the top right corner? If I'm going for marks or damage I really need to see those numbers. I don't care I've just earned +9 XP for damaging something. Thank you.

Battle HUD 6.0 is simply wrong, that's all .... if you want to diversify it WWII/CW wouldn't be a problem, why not?......... but in both cases it should be completely rethought, the current one has a scattering and counter-intuitive layout, it gives non-fundamental information and lacks fundamental ones... really a job (not necessary) done badly, IMHO

Thanks for the update Minto. Don't suppose that includes ribbons? I miss ribbons. Nicer seeing those rack up than the xp numbers

I agree, that is really annoying

The ribbons were really easy to read, you didn’t have to take your eyes off the gameplay to register them

Yes, it's like the ui/PBRS has been redesigned by accountants. All visual/easily absorbed cues have been replaced by numbers.

Specific? Make it optional! I want good HUD for CW too!

Yes, me too. They were perhaps WoTC's best interface idea.

And key numbers, like KILLS, are still missing.

I can see why you all upvoted this. /s

I'm sure they'll get right to it after they add new graphics for that fourth mark and some premium outfits for their 3d commanders.

What would you want to see from it? Ribbons? Would it look like it used to? Do you want more of a PC feel? Let me know. Could be a great poll if anyone wants to knock one up!

Old HUD (pre-6.0) was near perfect, with few additions from PC version it would have been perfect:  1. Add total health of both teams so you can easily see which team have more hitpoints left. 2. It would nice to see which round you just blocked and how much damage it was (for an excample, if an enemy IS-4 shoots you with HEAT and it bounces of your armor, there should be notification HEAT 440, like on PC). 3. Make dmg done/dmg blocked different in colour or font, currently it's very difficult to tell which one is which.  Just one thing: Keep auto-lock symbol from our current/modern HUD, it's really useful to know if you're auto-locked into an enemy or not,  it's the best addition/new feature in our current HUD.

Pre 6 Minto please and thanks. 

Chancing my arm but could you (obviously not you personally) do a Pre 6 PPBRS to go with it by any chance. Thanks in advance :hiding:
