There's just been a lovely new dashboard / hud released, Thanks to "Friendly" I hope he or she does not mind me graffiti-ing all over it. Here is a higher res version of it, more optimised for hd displays. I've painted in a lot of new details, reshaped the hud glass and changed its transparency.

I also redid the vcr controls to look less like an 80's beta and more like a 90's VHS.:D

Drop the files from the zip into your data/icons folder and enjoy (hopefully).

This is really nice, actually 🙂

(also makes me think, maybe the dashboard could be split into three separate widgets, left, center and right - there's a lot of repeat in the center)

It actually looks a lot better in the sim than in that pic... i might modify it some more or turn it into an entirely new thing at some point. I don't know whether its my keyboard or that i'm just spazzing out but i've never been able to take a screenshot in pioneer, If anyone can take a screen of it in use and upload it here that would be great.

I'm not sure what you mean about lots of repeat in the centre, I had considered adding some more junk behind the hud glass but perhaps the point of a HUD is to see through it. It could be tackled different ways of course - the hud doesn't need to be a hud, it could just be more metal or whatever.

The glass now looks much better and the icons more visible, the texture seems to have more resolution too.

The HUD is great.

i'm not shure, but it seems in alpha10 screenshots are disabled (at least in the windows builds).

i don't have to tell you i guess, you can use a screnshot program, there exist many, or simply use "printscreen" and open the clipboard content then with any paint program.

faststone capture works well for me, i never was able to make a proper screenshot from within pioneer, they looked always like a distorted TV signal.

yeah printscreen just generates a nice blank white hd frame... pioneers own seems to do nothing.

thanks Mysibrat for uploading a pic, strange how you have the wrong / old alert icon though, how has that happened?

That looks like the Alpha10 binary. We fixed the alert icon in Alpha11 (grab a nightly build and try it).
