So, I have tried various HUD styles and layouts for the building menu. This is the latest:

Thoughts?
Hmmm. while there's nothing wrong with it, I'd have to see other variations before saying whether or not it's the best one.
I think it looks good though, font wise as well as presentation.
Well, one version was essentially a hotkey system. With common looking 1-9 keys that would each have a building on them. But that system was less than intuitive and not great looking.
Another version was a radial wheel menu, which is somewhat less effective, since unlike in a 3D game, your mouse won't always start at the center of the wheel anyway. It was also impossible to dynamically update such a wheel system with new options.
Both of those versions also always had the "Build Menu" image plastered at the bottom of the screen at all times, as seen in this screenshot, but now that only appears when you open the menu.
In that case, I'd say the one up above then.
is there a coding file and icons from this HUD falacy?
that ppl can use?
The color of the grass is a pain on the eyes. Maybe if it were more dull or had less contrast/saturation on the highlights
