@Doomkid Great selection there, some of those I have on hand. The Area51 one was also used in The Twilight Zone IIRC which is where I first saw it. Nostalgic.

Good eye! I just happened to have that screenshot on hand so I used it, what you're seeing is a bit of a deathmatch map by Fonze. Not sure if he ever released it, but it was really good.

Lol <3

We need to HereDM again soon :)

There is something strangely charming about the status bar. Even though I don't really use it much anymore, when I was a kid playing all these FPS with their big status bars on the bottom of the screen I always felt like a super badass terminator or something.

A label-less statbar that I really like from Osiris:

Hmm, I think I don't like the label-less ones. It's not like I don't understand what is what without the labels, but status bars just look incomplete that way.

kZ0Gpvn.png Badass statbar from BioWar featuring a crusty old man.

The style seems familiar. If I had to guess, the original art came from something 3D Realms made.

Yep it's based on the Duke Nukem 3D statbar.

Quite a transformation.

I haven't played with the default status bar in years. I either use the advanced one in GLBoom+, which shows K/I/S and map time, or the alternative HUD in GZDoom, which does the above but also shows ammo for all weapons. As far as modded ones go, the HXRTC hud has the best practical design, which was posted earlier in this thread.

My personal favourites are BTSX Ep1, Eternal and Freedoom.  Those 3 are really cool and each have something a little different from each other.

 

PS:  Somebody (with the knowledge!) should package up all these HUDs and release a mod that allows one to choose their desired HUD from a menu...

I'm surprised that nobody talked about the awesome statbar from Beyond Reality.Rll.png.122966880b3391d6e84a3714b66ef71d.png

My favourite was the Devilution statusbar. I was sad that we couldnt keep it in Revilution, that status bar was meant to convey Doomguy just doesnt get a break, his status bar is smashed up and ruined and corrupted after his journey through Evilution, and now hes got another 32 levels to get through before he gets a break, poor bastard.
