Hud Basics

Below is a simplified diagram explaining what the various buttons do on the New Frontier HUD.

Current Hud Info.png

The HUD is divided into two sections, the Character Information Section, and the Dice System buttons. The Character information section takes up the top portion of the HUD display.

Your current Active Character's name, designation (Freelance Citizen), optional portrait (which can be uploaded via the HUD website, and current SLAT amount on hand (Slats are one of the in game currency options) all make up the Character Info Section.

The second Dice System Section Here you will find a majority of the hud buttons.

The buttons are as follows: backpack, which, when clicked will display your character's current inventory in the local chat, Dice buttons (for rolling various types of dice), Status Toggles between In Character (IC), Out of Character (OOC), and Away from Keyboard (AFK), Combat Mode button, which will switch your hud into combat mode and bring up a separate hud screen with combat specific buttons, and the help button, which provides links to various HUD help documents.

The very bottom of the hud features a button to switch Character Profiles for easy toggling through your character list.
