I would like more customization with HUD elements.

One of the things I find myself constantly saying to my fireteam is how I'd like to change more things on my HUD. The first thing that comes to mind is the true meaning of HUD opacity. I'd really like to be able to make certain HUD elements truly opaque, such as the radar. In bright crucible areas, I find it difficult at times to read the radar due to the bright red blending in with the environment, as the radar is pretty much transparent. Giving players the option to customize things like this would be a nice touch. Another thing would be giving us the ability to change where certain things are on the screen. I personally wouldn't change anything, but I'm sure there's some sick freak that would want the super bar in the middle of the screen and the chat box in the bottom left, etc. One last thing would be the ability to eliminate certain HUD elements. I've run into a few occasions where the C flag marker obscures my vision enough to distract me from the guy trying to gun me down, so having the ability to hide these things would be a nice feature to give Guardians more control over what they see without turning off the HUD altogether. These changes wouldn't alter the game entirely, but I'd appreciate some more customization in this area.

  • This but also the "low" opacity doesn't make that much of a difference to me. The super bar and abilities are still bright as hell. I'd like to make a few things more transparent to be able to get more screen room.

  • Toggle individual HUD elemenrts, yes please! A lot of games do that nowadays. Myself I prefer as minimalistic HUD as possible, it's just that the tracker and nametags/waypoint is fairly useful, as well as the ability energy meters. The other elements I personally don't really use very much.

  • We had a cool black and white setting in d1 and a gold setting.

    Also, can the no hud warning stop appearing for more than a second every time I exit out of a menu? It's not even user friendly at all.

  • I would like a compass on my radar. Using north south west and east for directions is so much easier.

  • This is right on. I have the same problem reading the radar and so on. This is right on. If Bungie will listen and can do this, it would improve the player experience immensely. \

  • 1. More HUD customization is a good idea. 2. Try using paragraphs next time, it makes reading stuff a lot easier.

    • After talking a break from Destiny I started playing FFXIV. That game lets to change everything position, size, colour and in some cases design. Moving that stuff about was a bit clunky on console but once you had it how you liked it it was worth the effort. Destiny could definitely do with HUD customisation opinion. I feel the buff/debuff is a bit cluttered, you could have a few weapons buffs going, then buffs from fireteam, then on top of that you also have to look for raid buff in the same place. I would change that if I had the option separate them or colour code them, personal, fireteam, mechanic.

      • DrSilver you make some valid points and I agree that eververse needs to be removed from the game. But Whether we wanted it or not, we’ve stepped into a war with the Cabal on Mars. So let’s get to taking out their command, one by one. Valus Ta’aurc. From what I can gather he commands the Siege Dancers from an Imperial Land Tank outside of Rubicon. He's well protected, but with the right team, we can punch through those defenses, take this beast out, and break their grip on Freehold.

      • I would like a "classic" style hud like in D1. Wouldn't be too different from the one now, but it would be nice to have the option

        I agree with your point about the radar, it can be difficult to read sometimes. Apparantly some of the colour blind modes use colours that are easier to see. Ideally it'd be nice to just have a high contrast option; a solid black background with customisable colours for the segments. I would also like to be able to move/remove the text feed that comes up next to your reticle. It's kind of pointless. I don't need to know the name of the player who I just defeated, or be told that I've just captured a zone... And if I do need to see that, it's all in the feed in the bottom left of the screen. Feels like kind of a strange design decision to show it twice, once small and tucked away, and a second time unavoidable and right in your face. Some may prefer it but it should be an option.
