After I got over my initial bout of jealousy and realised that no, I don’t have the time or expertise to devote to any kind of project like that, I expressed my very sincere congratulations and sat back to eagerly await the blog’s debut.
At first blush, NoStockUi looks like it’s shaping up to be a wonderful resource. I’ve already learned of a couple new addons I might like to try out and my resolve to run addon-light is being tested to its limit.
Then I ran into Matticus’s HUD post.
I am very dissapointed. Really, I think you could have done much better sir. This post amouts to little more than posting links to 4 different HUD systems and saying “These are HUDs, they do stuff”.
Well, it’s ok, I forgive you. I realise that launching a new site is difficult work, made even more difficult by expectations of content out of the gate.
So, I’ve whined to Brajana about it, and, as whining without action is just obnoxious, I’m going to put my money where my mouth is and attempt a 4-part analysis of the different HUD displays you mentioned in that post.
I’m no expert, and code scares me. I doubt I would have anything to add to your project in the long-run, but I do love my HUD mods something awful and I’ve used all 4 of those mentioned in the past. This is a project I believe I can complete in a thorough and aesthetically pleasing manner.
Ideally, it should take about a month. I will try to spend a week with each HUD mod listed and post the results on the weekend.
Wish me luck!
