    Hey Gerbageerganret gamers,
    Lately i've taken note at the fact that the developer who created our current hud alongside me has decided to do the scummiest thing a developer can do, and that is re-sell our hud. I suppose he saw us as easy advertisements and a high potential for money, sourcing from cheap Garnet knock-off servers. Due to the high influx of servers using this hud, I've decided to open up Notepad++ and create a new hud.
    Many hours and failed attempts later, i've managed to create this:

    For reference, our current hud looks like this:
    [​IMG]
    The ONLY thing in common between these two is the font used, simply because it's the best I could possibly come up with.

    Please DO give me your most honest criticism on the new HUD seeing as I will make adjustments based on you guys' request. The hud is no longer a SOLID bar, but rather a cool blurry effect which blends into your screen, neither are there strong white borders. Those were also replaced by blurred grey lines. I did not like the extremely sharp look of our old hud, and so I had time to mess around for a bit. ​

    The one thing I'd have to say is the gradient looks a little weird but other than that not really.
    Edit: The icons look a little low res.

    I feel like Garnet is slowly getting more retarded as time goes by with these nicknames

    I think Gyazo has to do with this, because in-game they look well blended in, and not as sharp as the image displays. Possibly compression.
    What did you not like about the gradient? I can get rid of it and stick to a solid bar, or make the gradient effect rougher/softer, personally it was my favorite thing about it.

    fuck you idiot

    I roughened up the gradient, and extended it outside the laws window in the picture above (value 150 for reference):

    No gradient effect (value 0):

    Short gradient, high opacity bar:

    Personally, I think the third one looks the best.

    Looks amazing. Awesome work. It really sucks to hear that you get betrayed by your developers constantly.
