Default New HUD?

I've been following Condition Zero for a while now, as I'm sure many have, and the progress looks great. The graphics are improved a ton, and they look simply amazing if you consider the fact that it's on the original HL (technically Quake) engine.

Anyways, on to my question... The HUD in Counter-Strike (and all of the other HL games) is really outdated and ugly now. Is there any plans to change the HUD at all? A minor item, I'm sure, but I'm just curious. Haven't seen it asked at all.

I'm pretty sure the multiplayer HUD is the same as the one in CS 1.6 (Beta).

Yeah, I thought the same thing, but I still wanted to know for sure. I'm probably in the minority who don't like the HUD probably, though.

can you explain why you don't like it? you don't like the colors? The placement of the icons? The way you have to navigate the HUD menus?

I just think that the general HUD of CS (the health, armor, buy icons on the main screen that you have when you are playing) are seriously outdated. They look like the kind of HUD you'd expect in Quake/Unreal days. HUDs generally look alot better now. I just don't like the icons (not the buy menu) and text.

I, personally, like it in FPS games where there is a body that shows how much health/armor you have, normally in the lower left-hand corner of the screen along with a text showing of actual health and armor. I also like it when a representation of your gun is in the lower right-hand side (like in the pie screenshot, but a smaller version, perhaps, and in the corner I spoke of) with the ammo and clip information in text format.

Here's an example of the "body" I was talking about: http://www.strike-force.com/features_files/image010.jpg

Again, that's just me, however. I'm just not a fan of the HUD in HL or CS. I'm probably one of the few players who thinks that way, however.

lol, I was just teasing you, man... I don't want CS to change much, but I want it to change. The graphics changed (improved) and it was great. I think a new HUD would do the same. It's not like they can't try it, or have two versions in the game [img]/forums/images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Not gonna happen, but I can dream... Or try to make a mod.
