    I voted no! I would have voted yes on  image 2 and 3 but image 1 is clearly a no as it is really bad design from a drivers perspective.

    yes was my vote. it has multiple uses in the past and its continued use means it has no flaws for drivers and makes the game look one step closer to realism for those who spectate during online and league races.

    Yes I voted yes. Pic 3 looks epic. Would love that grid intro

    I think a simple yes/no is not very useful (to me), I would say "yes, if this new hud is at least as good as the current one", but the first image posted in the original poll does not qualify for that. There is a clutter of irrelevant information, while the important information is either too small or outright missing.

    If a good hud can be made with the official graphics, then I'd be all for it, and people claim it's supposedly very easy, but so far all the examples I've seen are really not great.

    Alternatively, if there was a high degree of customizability, then I'd be fine with it too, I'd make something useful for myself.

    As it is.. the existing hud is not fancy, not particularly pretty, but it gives me exactly the information I need and want without blocking my view. Every example picture of official-hud-in-game I've seen (though I admit I have not been actively searching for them) have been immensely obtrusive, and I really do wonder how happy people will be with it when they didn't see a car stopped on the road in front of them till it was too late because it was hidden behind some interface element.

    Pretty, perhaps, but less is more. It all needs to be toned down a bunch, when driving, at least.

    if you look at the first picture. it is less cluttered then it is now...

    Oh guys, it's very easy to use it individual. Every player can setup how many positions have to be shown. First position + PX PYou PY or Top5 + PX PYou PY or Top10 or all positions. Like the tcam you have the option for the HUD so that it isn't cluttered!

    Yes, just an intro. But where is the official HUD?  :D
  • roberto28roberto28 Member Co-Driver
    Yes
    Why the official intro but no official HUD? Most of us dont pay attention to the intro.. rather had official HUD and Codies Intro
  • BelgiumDudeBelgiumDude Member Petrol Head

    Really glad Codemasters is making the game and not the members of this forum. What a monstrosity that game would be. But hey the more we could whine about the poor graphics. o:)

    it's funny to see that they have the official intro now with the multicolor light rays forming the F1 Logo, which is awesome, but still hang on the poorly made OSD for broadcast Timing information and system display of the car. hopefully they find some time to work on that until release.

    Fifa 17 didn't have the original premier league broadcast from launch but they brought it with an update download. So there is hope.

    I guess at the moment the result of the poll is very clear and reflects our throughs over the last couple of months, again they can not ignore their customers. Without customers no income, no income no future!!

    Doesn't bother me. Would prefer they spent the money/time on other things.

    I think the codies HUD is better and anyway the driver does not see the HUD in the race.

    yeah that' why I voted no as well as the HUD that CM already have is better in those circumstances.

    Why not make it optional, people who like the official hud can drive with the official hud and people who dont like it drive with the default cm hud. Everyone happy right? I dont know if that would be possible, its just an idea.
