Advanced HP Bar Indicator missing - ETA? And making other objects movable/draggable?

Recommended Posts

1st, and idea when the Advanced HP Bar Indicator will be  done?

2nd, any idea where the original HP indicator is located so I can move it to the center screen via an .xml file? *I play on triple monitors.

3rd,  Is making the On-screen objects (Minimap, chat, HP indicator, compass....etc) movable/draggable a complicated endeavor? e.g. could an IT Sys. Admin be taught how to do this? IF so what would be the steps/process? 

If would be a daunting task for someone to learn, would anyone like to take it on??? Take my money!!

1. AutoSpy the author of this mod is retuning from vacation next week, then he will update all his mods. That's all I know.

2. No idea, probably possible if you know which file to mod and which part of code. 

3. From what I know it's hard, but I don't create such things so I'm not right person to be asked about it.

2. Thats really my hang up; is I don't know where the file is? 

For the past few years I have had to change the parameters in the "battle_layout.xml and the !BB_main_hud.unbound" (among others) to move my minmap, speed indicator, compass...etc.

So if I could find where the "Health Bar" is located, which I cant, I would feel fairly confident I could change the code....hopefully.

If you could please help me find the where WG put the Health Bar I would be very grateful!!


PS, I cant believe there are no requests to have all of the HUD objects to be movable/draggable, as I cant be the only triple monitor/ultrawide user out there.


I truly appreciate what you, and all  of the modders do!

Thanks guys!!!

2. My guess is gui\unbound2\pc\battle\own_ship_health.unbound


Draggable = This request is mainly to WG, I don't think that any modder will be interested to change the UI the way that everything is draggable, it sounds like a hell of a job. It's somethibg very hard to do, and after WG update such modders will have to update tons of the code. You may request it on WG forums in the modders section.
