I swear these damn things hide from me. Maybe it's my old eyes .. but ..
A few things I struggle with:
- Seeing the 'highlighted' station. The white corners given to a target station just gets lost. This is particularly bad with Light Blue and Green highlights already. Please accentuate the targeting 'box', or allow us to change the color/shape/pattern.
- Finding my own ships and bases in friendly territory. Yes, I can go to the overhead view/list and select them there, but sometimes when I need to do a great deal of switching around (forgive me, I'm new) it is a nuisance just finding my own ships and stations in allied territory. Please accentuate or allow us to change our own colors.
- Those arrows targeting a selected jump calculation or target. They are easily hidden behind the UI. Please allow us to change their size/shape/color or better design those indicators.
- Less, but on occasion (finding 'objects of interest') those little '>'s are not as obvious as they could be. If my sensors actually pick up such and object, I want an audio alert along with it. And my 25th (?) century computer should be able to tell me roughly where it found something long after I've left sensor range.
Overall the HUD is acceptable. Not great (I'm sure I've struggled less in the past with other games), but it could use some QOL improvements.
EDIT: A simple 'fix' might be to display arrows OVER the HUD elements, rather than the HUD hiding them. That said, I still would like them to be a bit more obvious.
