Just a quick look at the new hud: it seems much less condensed compared to before. Also, it seems somewhat poorly organized. All the stats at the very top are all jumbled, making it hard to directly understand in heated moments like being overrun by the undead.
Suggestions for creators looking (probably not but whatever): Line up the main body parts along with Sound, Stamina, and focus or power all below them. The rest would take the other bits like stats, mood, and speed.
I’m also guessing spacing might be an issue, as the new form would allow for more filled out and larger location names.
You could try and fix the issue of preference it by making two versions: the current one showed, and a hyper-condensed version listing the body part health bars, time, weather (Degrees/Celsius, not sky), stamina, and pain. Maybe sound as well. This would allow for a much larger log and enemy list, combining the best of both the worlds.
Just an idea.
