NO2O! The Definitive List of 1.7/2.2-Compatible HUD Colour/Color Configs (please add yours!)

I would pay real money in the store for an intelligent HUD colour changing addon. Orange could be a slightly psychotic colour if stared at for too long.
Think about the children, why won't anyone think about the children !

Flimley.
I admit that I would chip in if there were a development fund to get this in the game. But you're right anyway, won't someone think of the children?! :(

I would share mine but unfortunately all portaits are black for me except for powerplay. Seems like some software damage and I am too lazy to repair it. I just wait for the next patch to do that for me hehe. Would sahre my 10+ HUD colours then :p
If they patched the black portraits, this thread would become moot and you wouldn't have to share any :p :D

Dammit! Amarr left EvE for ED?!
No one would blame them if they did, amirite?
 
Code:
<MatrixRed> 0.5, -0.5, -2 </MatrixRed>
<MatrixGreen> 0, 2, 2 </MatrixGreen>
<MatrixBlue> 0, 0, 2 </MatrixBlue>
Notes: Hard Red theme with blue as a secondary colour (shields, blue zones, etc.). -200/200 range to differentiate radar colours from hostile/neutral/freindly/other colour codings.
Portrais are slightly affected and shine in a red-ish colour. Station window is orange while the ship panels remain hard red.

Too lazy for pictures, the OP does this anyways I guess? have a rep. :)


EDIT:

Code:
<MatrixRed> 1.5, -0.1, -0.1 </MatrixRed>
<MatrixGreen> 0, 2, 2 </MatrixGreen>
<MatrixBlue> -0.5, -0.5, 0.5 </MatrixBlue>
Baby Red/Blue theme. Portaits are not affected at all! A soft red-ish colour theme for those who find the previous hard red too .. well .. hard. :D

This my Tornado Sky Hud set up. Apologies if I don't conform to thread standards. I'm new at this.
<MatrixRed> 0.57, 0.77, 0.87 </MatrixRed>
<MatrixGreen> -0.36, 0.44, -1 </MatrixGreen>
<MatrixBlue> -0.2, -0.12, 1 </MatrixBlue>
It's easy on the eyes and the portraits are accessible.

Got round to updating the thread while I had some time. Decided to trim it back a little. Rev 04 changes:

  • Massive tidy up so it's more concise
  • Removed the colour headings and folded the additional previews and config lines into the SPOILERS to save space
  • Removed some content and moved the rest to the bottom so The List is first
  • Added the dates that the configs were submitted
  • Gave a more prominent mention to drkaii's EDProfiler


Apologies for the delay guys - didn't have time to test and screenshot these during this update. I'll add them shortly [up]

It will be great if you wanna share you're scheme...
Was that directed at me? If so, I'm an avid user of the blues in The List, particularly Garrus' and Droid8Apple's, but it depends on the mood/ship :D

Here the one I use actually and it's my favourite. It's called "Blue Stahli" (I don't make it myself)

<matrixred> 0.15, 0.25, 0.9 </matrixred>
<matrixgreen> 0.62, 1, 0.32 </matrixgreen>
<matrixblue> 0.48, 0, 0 </matrixblue>

This is what it looks like

 
Hey all. I'm new to the game and new to the forum. I created this HUD the other day. It's a spin off of the "Hudson Red" from page one. i changed it around a bit to make it easier on my eyes and not have such blown out reds. Plus it almost matches the interior lighting of the Vulture almost perfectly. The portraits are practically unchanged. My apologies in advance if I messed up this post in any way.

<MatrixRed> 1, 0, 0 </MatrixRed>
<MatrixGreen> 0, 0.3, 0 </MatrixGreen>
<MatrixBlue> 0, 0.6, 1 </MatrixBlue>

Not trying to go off topic but you can get some truly amazing looking colors by tweaking the hue and saturation in your graphics card control panel. I came full circle from just about every color combo you could imagine back to the original hud. That's when I began tweaking the hue and sat. Yes it changes every color in the game. Sometimes things look truly alien it gets very interesting.
 
I wish Frontier would let us know if HUD colour change will ever happen. I have seen this request on the forums for ever.

Flimley.

Well the longer they wait the more UI they add the harder it will be. If they do it they will have to completely recode the GUI which is no small task. Don't know why they didn't do it to begin with. You look at something for hundreds of hours .

There can be no pics. Sorry you'll have to trust me. If I take a screen shot of my tweaked monitor and you try to view it on your untweaked monitor you will not notice anything different. I could take a screen shot and edit the colors to show the effect I'm speaking of but I get the feeling that would not be proof enough for you. A seven year old can make the adjustments I'm speaking of so I'll leave it up you.
 
Is there a location for the various GUI profiles? I'd like to delete some that I created.

Thx!
