HUD Improvment Thread - What to make Optional Again

Prev1
I am making this post cause my two old posts about this got moved to the Feedback home section. No one reads that and since that my threads died. You can found links to them at the bottom of this thread.
I will suggest here what to make optional cause since the updated the HUD is oversaturated. ;
Toggle off and on;
1. Hero icons
2. Partner location, Icon above the head of charging...(Staying close to your partner will provide you with reduced cooldowns for all your Star Cards. This is illustrated via an icon above the in-game soldier. An exclamation mark means that you are too far away, a check mark means you are within distance, and a cross means your partner is dead.)
3. Kill Camera red outline
4. Enemy Highlights: Enemies will be highlighted if they are inside the player’s crosshair for more than 1 second. The highlight will be removed after the crosshair isn’t on the enemy for 1 second.
5. Partner: Enemies that kill your partner will have a red outline for a brief period.
6. Traits: Whenever an enemy has reached the third level with a trait card, it will now be visible above his health bar.
7. Objectives should be toggle. In BF2 it was perfect. You could turn them off and on with left alt. SO you turn them on to see where they are and turn them off to fight. And in an instant again check your direction.
8. Soldier name and heath bar
9. Crosshair
All HUD elements should have distance, transparency and size adjustments
Please EA and Dice listen to the community

    I would like to see a 'lite' version where the icons/info presented is still there but smaller and less intrusive. For example the hero icons could just be a small mono-color rebel/empire icon (or similar) instead of a big colorful hero picture.

  • If it got moved to the feedback area twice then it will be moved again. I agree with your post but there is no reason to make duplicates. Anyway prepare for the inevitable closing of the thread.

    There's be forums like this before. Dice's probably not going to care.

    I think still many players find them really annoying and all we ask is a possibility to turn them off.

  • I heard that they where experiment to see if the hero icons can be made optional.

    I mostly got used to it, but flashing messages, such as trait card level ups needs to be smaller.

    I would love to get an option to spend more credits in a contract and to unlock the weapon instantly instead of doing the challenges. I've still contracts which I'll never finish, but I've almost 1mio credits. Also I think Jabba likes to get more credits instead of doing something.

    I find easy to finish all contracts.

    This would be nice. If you can't or don't want to do the contract, you could pay a bribe to Jabba to complete it immediately, say at double or triple the initial cost of the contract.

    Also, more HUD customization would be welcome.
    To think that once I could not see beyond the veil of our reality, to see those who dwell behind.
  • That is all I ask. To give us more customization. It should be like that with all BF games.

  • Disagree with everything regarding partners. Would ruin the partner system.
  • Disagree with everything regarding partners. Would ruin the partner system.

    Well its about option. You like it, you keep it. I don't like it, I disable it.
  • I saw no mentioning of HUD customization in today's patch notes. A shame.
  • So we got the new patch. Can you now focus to make a small patch for player HUD customization. It can't be that hard to put off/on options for HUD elements.

    I can't see a reason why this would be an issue to code. It could be done with small resources and fast.

  • You need to call it a nerf and then Dice will be all over it. They love to cater to the nerfherders. Try NERF THE HUD instead and it's guaranteed to be in the next patch. I personally would love a lite version of the hud

    I am die hard fan and would like to see one of the best games ever improved so it becomes perfect. I think DICE is overdoing with HUD saturation and want to hear their reaction to this issue.

  • I am back. Any news now?
  • I played Battlefield one beta recently and all that has been said here can be applied on BF1. They just think if you see your squad mates through the wall in WWI battle you are happy about it. OMG! Give us options to turn that off at least if you want it to be in the game. Just give us options. Please.

    Same could be said for you.
    it was @NICK-ALTMAN that bump the threat first I just add some commentary.
  • Have you tried the HUD™?
  • I would love to get an option to spend more credits in a contract and to unlock the weapon instantly instead of doing the challenges. I've still contracts which I'll never finish, but I've almost 1mio credits. Also I think Jabba likes to get more credits instead of doing something.

    No. No. No. No. NO!

    I think the Hutt Contracts, along with the challenges, are a really nice feature that encourage you to try different weapons, game modes, and star cards. I've seriously impacted on my game stats chasing the contracts using loadouts that are outside my comfort zone but I'm glad I did and you get the reward at the end - I would be seriously disappointed if your suggestion got implemented. Just put the time and effort in to complete the contracts or live without the unlock.
  • I think it'd be cool to have a more futuristic HUD like what a stormtrooper would see from his inside his helmet.
