Hey, I just whipped up this new status bar for Treblinka and wanted to get some thoughts on it. I have two versions that are extremely similar. One has a one-pixel border around the digit boxes that is a semi-transparent overlay in order to blend the background texture together a bit. The other one does not have that extra border.





Lemme know what you guys think. I do not have a BJ head in there yet. I am leaning toward the top version as it is pixel-perfect in terms of everything's distance from the border. Very OCD-satisfying Razz

I agree with doomjedi on all counts.

I don't know, man. If this is supposed to take place at Treblinka, you know, an actual concentration camp in the 1940's, the status bar looks way too modern and cyberpunk for it. I would go for a more traditional look as it's one of the few historically correct mods out there/in the works - but that's just my view.

I think he means that the overall 'feel' of the status bar is something more digital and modern, which in his opinion may clash if your mod has a concentration camp-esque setting, or something equally dark and/or antiquated.

My preference: second bar. Reason: I like sharpness.

But truthfully I think the best way to tell would be with digits in place, at least.

But regardless, that status bar looks super nice.

While I do like "sharpness", as Zach said, I have to vote for the top one. In a pre-modern mod, graphics that seem less "surreal" and more "earthy" is a better way to go, IMO.

But both look good regardless. Smile

The differences is in the "thickness" of the green boxes. The rounded boxes remain unmodified.
