Picture of the Week 0044

published Tuesday, 20 Sept. 2011, 15:00 by ZPSHicks

Although it's not on the top of our current "to do" list, we're really looking forward to implementing the tactical PDA; which features loads of interesting tactical gameplay and options. Here you have the PDA in one of its early proof-of-concepts and if you can guess the game in the background, I'll work naked, all day tomorrow! .. (not really) :)

Love the PDA setup, the HUD in general is kind of distracting though.

I love it too.

Also, I believe you'll be able to customize the HUD in some way. I remember color choices being mentioned a while ago.

Love the PDA, I would prefer an amber or blue lighting scheme over red. but I like the idea of "looking" at my arm and seeing what's going on and where I am (all hail the mighty automap!!!)

I'm guessing Doom 3 for some reason even tho I know it's not.

And about you working naked, it's no use, I got pictures I can blackmail you with !

Looks great. I especially like that you can see around it as well, please keep it like that in the game. It's a small screen it's not like it takes up your whole peripheral view. That always made the Fallout PIP Boy so un-immersive to me that it took up the whole screen.

I just noticed it and laughed hard : ITO should mean Interstellar Treaty Organisation and there it is Interstellar Terrorist Organisation. Nice one. I guess playing rogue elements of the IM organisation would be pretty fun too :).

"Interstellar Terrorist Organisation" Eh? So that's what ITO stands for :3

That one absolutely great looking datapad. I'd suggest adding upper and lower floors as translucent layers so that it's easier to navigate on vertical levels and find stairs.

D3 was my choise also, when I see the whit spot I said to myself: "Thats IDtech, with they have a demo there, I da heck they havent use it ?" ;)

Ok not at top of to do list, but dont release the game without it, thats going to be the FEATURE of IM.

Doom 3 has PDA too (though fullscreen), but this looks much more immersive. I would call it SmartPDA or IMDA (Interstellar Marines Digital Assistant).

It lookse like your playing Tetris on the background of the PDA...

"I'll work naked, all day tomorrow! .. (not really) :)" - ZPSHicks

heh what use is that if we can't see ya ?B;-b

in all seriousness. good idea with that concept. and also kudos to @vodny_cz
IMDA. awsome name buddy. ZPS if you are planing to feature this. which i hope you will.
please use the name of IMDA. sounds profesional.

and also if you have the time see if you could make a IMDA test "game/demo" so we could see how the concept works in real time. if it won't take your precious time, that is

I love it when devs integrate game menus into the world of the game. This is a step in the right direction. I have faith in your guys and I can't wait until this game is released.

Wow that PDA looks awesome, reminds me of the Fallout 3 Pip-Boy though.

Nice, I love the red. I'm a bit surprised that it isn't more similar to the in-development American touch-screen arm band thing though. Or did you guys know about it? :P Bending screens FTW

Looks a lot neater than having a HUD cloud the screen certainly, also means no pause breaks to avoid those land sharks!

This looks oddly familiar! :D

And if memory serves, this was even made before the iPad! What? Law suit? I think so!

@JerreyRough: I can imagine the dev who made this awesome concept used red because it is the color which is the 'weakest' light - ie they only use red in dark rooms (b/w photos). We don't want 'space marines' with big shiny lights on them, do we? :P

... And I would have guessed D3 as well :D

Cheers!

PS: Pics or it never happened! <3

I would call it something like MTBA (Marine Tactical Battle Assistant) or something similar.
Great pic BTW!

Love the HUD, it's perfect, not too bright not too dim, with some minor modifications, it could totally enter the game!
