I saw the topic started by RobExplorien and with it some of its comments. So, someone said that the image of the speedometer was too small compared to the original and that it was necessary to enlarge it. Guys, this is what I made.

 

Edit: To note the flag of Captain Redbeard that I took from his NPC model.

I made the Holder in beta style too:

I'm working about the "adding white bricks" texture. I want to do something similar to the beta: a white brick and, near, the number of the bricks you collected.

I saw that the speedometer was imperfect with his texture, so I got the one from this screenshot:

And, traslating it to a bmp I got this:

The problem is still the indicator, I don't know what is his bmp. I will search for it.

I just finished the mini-speedometer and the new holder, this time with a reference to the beta (in beta version the white bricks were indicated with a diamond and, next to it, a number. So I did a white brick and near it a number from 1 to 3).

 

Edit: the speedometer is smaller because there were some imperfections and I have to do it again (I get it from the smaller version).

I've enlarged the icon of the power up too, like the beta.

 

Are good textures or not? I didn't see any comment :/ Is it not interesting? If you don't like or if there is something wrong with this topic please tell me about.

I only now just realised this topic being here, so...

The enlarged speedometer in the third post looks much better than the one in your first post. The bricks look, well, smoothler textured.

As for the indicator, the red dot is located in DOT.BMP. The pointer is still a search for me.

The beta holder for the power-ups look fine I guess, but isn't the green colour a little too bright here in the last image? It does not seem to match with the green power-up bricks colour on the tracks.

 

As for the lack of comments, I think it's because we've seen this speedometer before (as in, recreated and posted in another topic), and it's not new to us anymore. But now I see that you're trying to make the HUD completely beta-style, and that's interesting.

I initially got the idea of the speedometer from your topic. And for a while I liked the way it was, then I realized looking at various screenshots that the quality of the textures of your kilobricks was very low. So I got the one from the shot you said and I implemented instead of the first. I also noticed that you did not know how to enlarge it, well, I did it with Paint. All the rest of the HUD I did it with the same way screenshots-game. ;)

 

Edit: Enlarged speedometer is finished!

Never cared to try it either, but it's nice to see you continue working on it.

BTW, the right speedometer in your last post here does have some white borders around the bricks, which really annoys me in textures, but I don't know how it'll look in-game. Looks awesome now.

Oh, if you look at it in the gameplay you can't see them (the white borders).

But believe me, the complessive result is of the best.

I think the last version of the beta HUD is finished :)

Release the mod! I'll go as far as make a PatchIt Patch for it if you can't!

 

Now all it's missing is the beta font (or a cleaner release font)...

I just have to finish the turbo level 2 and it is ready. :D
Just one question: how can I release a mod in a legal way? I've never done...
 
EDIT: I've done the diamond icon too :)

With PatchIt! ofcourse, I see le717 mentioned it already. Use an 'empty' LEGO.JAM archive and just include all the modded files (and only those) in their corresponding folders, then (optionally) proceed to use PatchIt! to do the rest. This will be helpful on your way.

Hey Rob, in the project there are the maps of the circuits of your "Map revamp project" too. Can I add them to the mod?

You may, but is it a good idea? Maybe the potential users of this bèta HUD would only like to instal the bèta HUD and not the revamped maps also. So you could make two PatchIt! patches (one for bèta HUD only, and the other for both) and add them to the .zip/.rar. That way users have the choice.
