Yes, anything you can utilize as a stable framework for the programming will be a big help.

 

Would you say UnrealEd is stable enough for it, not the programming language, but it's actor modifying menus? Would that be a stable framework or no?

Question before I start (since all the cool kids seem to be making HUDs): will the creation of a servitor impact any existing Tulape of any stage? Selene and I are somewhat worried the creation of the servitor could negatively effect her.

Very interesting. I've chatted with a fellow on the IRC who was undertaking a similar project by having a servitor phone in a way. More like a PDA/Scheduler was what he was working on.

So I got a few questions if you don't mind. You have any images that are similar to what your HUD looks like, if so; could you link that? What purposes/sub-routines do you have Enigma being utilized for?

Like that, more or less. The individual elements pop up when I need them and disappear when I'm not using them so they don't clutter my peripheral vision. Instead of energy tanks it just says "Energy" across the top and instead of on the side (the servitor treats my energy level as a percentage). The beam and visor symbols are both gone obviously, and I map whatever I might need at any given time to the sliders along the sides (e.g. stamina level).

 

Enigma's main purpose is to take some of the burden off of Luna when it comes to planning my schedule, as such it has both a day planner and another one that covers a longer timeframe (up to a month). The radar and 3D minimap are both functional, and it also has a scan visor (though that's more of a gimmick that doesn't do anything useful).

Additionally, it can interface with my electronic devices and provide me with supplementary information (such as passwords, or in the case of my watch and cell phone, imposing a nav marker to point me to my current objective). Also, it's able to emulate a 2x optical zoom by taking the center of my FOV and magnifying it.
