1Parts HUD

76.4k PlanariaLab  11 months ago

current version : 1.3.1

Be sure to read the instructions before using the product.

By exploiting the variable function and text labels, it is possible to create a HUD with a certain level of functionality using only one part.

---How to use---

Place this HUD (TextLabel) directly in front of the view point (camera or cockpit), and copy the variables TGTPOS_Local_X, TGTPOS_Local_Y, and TGTPOS_Local_Z from this build, and set the newly defined variable HudDistance to an appropriate value.
If you don't know about variables, plrase read back the SP1.11 release notes

Caution, changing the height or width of the label is not recommended as it may cause the drawing to collapse.

---Variables list---

  • HudDistance
    This is used to properly position the TD BOX and other displays.
    Enter the distance between the HUD and the view point.
    If you have changed the scale of the HUD

Probably won't be using it, but You can also make the distance variable.

  • TGTPOSLocal(X/Y/Z)
    The relative coordinates of the player and the target.
    Local is so named because the coordinate system follows the local coordinate system based on the player's direction.
    Basically, you don't need to change anything, just copy and paste what is stored in this build.

---Display contents---

I'm not familiar with the terminology, so sorry if I'm wrong.

You do not need permission to use it in your work.
Also, a credit will make the author happy, but is not required.

    Please read the explanation once before asking a question. Writing the same reply over and over is very tiring

    To everyone who doesn't understand what to do: you add the label part to sub-assemblies and then put it on your own build. You can make it smaller by changing part scale in XML propeties. THERE ARE VARIABLES however, that the HUD label uses, and they are NOT ATTACHED to it. So you open THIS build, open Variables section using the button at the bottom of the screen, and copy everything from there. Then you go to YOUR build, put the label part in place, and then open Variables section, and PASTE everything you copied previously.

    If your TD Box (the square that shows the target) is off place, you should adjust HudDistance.

    I read how to use it several times, but I still didn't understand, I should just copy and paste those variables into the text piece and that's it?

    Very nice.. I like how he said 1 part(s) as in 2 or more.. Also when I put it into my subs it turns into errors but I found a fix.. Go into overload copy all the code/text from the original 'aircraft' then when you pull it out of subs go into overload select all delete then paste the code/text into the text variable.

    When entering the distance between the HUD and view point, what format should we follow when we input the expression?

    Send help! I'm an idiot who has almost no knowledge of funky tree!
    Do you put something in place of TGTPOSLocalX/Y/Z or do I put TGTPOSLocalX/Y/Z in place of something else?
