Custom Fuel Gauges

Recommended Posts

Moved here from http://www.auslot.co...post__p__215410

 

Had fun with the fuel guage today...

Rotated it, and added a white border arround it to make it more visable on the red lane...

Not too sure if it's better, but the white border definately helps...

Next step might be to make it look like battery charge... lol.

 

Edit: Screenshot Added.

I've been messing about creating some fuel images for RC and here are the results...

 

RC_Fuel_Images_Standard: These are identical to the standard images but with a solid black background and outline (so you don lose the low fuel levels if driving in red lane). Grab the ZIp file here.

 

RC_Fuel_Images_Gauges1: My first crack at trying to make a more realistic fuel gauge image (16 images in this set). Grab the Zip file here.

 

RC_Fuel_Images_Gauges2: My second go using a real fuel gauge image as a background (20 images in this set). See the screenshot below. Grab the Zip file here.

P.S. Thanks for the write-protect tip shadow_rusty. Saves me the whole cut/paste routine for each RC upgrade.

Very smart looking gauges there...

 

Gas/LED/Mobile battery style gauges would look pretty cool...

Ask and you shall receive...

 

RC_Fuel_Images_Gauges3: My third go using a LED style gauge as a background (11 images in this set). See the screenshot below. Grab the Zip file here.

Dumb questions department.

 

The standard icons had 0 - 20 (21 images) in the set.

For all these fancy sets with less numbers of images, how do you set it up?

 

ps, they look great, thanks for sharing..... duly nicked...

You're welcome SlotsNZ.

 

You will just need to backup (or move) your existing set of fuel_0.png ... fuel_20.png images files from the data\images\ui folder and drop in the new set and you are away. RC will do the rest.
