Default Legend-Style PDA Texture Pack



Legend-style PDA


I’ve always found it eye-straining to use the Underworld PDA. Don't get me wrong, it's a cool concept but jarring to use in practice.

Here's my attempt at creating a suitable replacement that is lighter in colour and sleeker in design. The PDA background texture came from Tomb Raider Legend, with some modifications which are described below.

This mod is optimal for 16:9 displays

Modifications:
  • The grey frame is thicker.
  • All images have been given rounded corners to match the new UI style.
  • I removed the white line from loading screens because when the loading is done; the text, spinning circle and background image fades into gameplay, but the white line disappears without fading which is noticeable.




Issues:
  • The 'ESC BACK' text is centred over the button on most pages, but not on the journal page because the text placement is slightly different.

I'd also recommend checking out:Related project:

Changelog 1.2:

I've managed to resolve the issue where in some cases there was a light grey edge along the right and bottom of images.

Changelog 1.3:

The new tpf file size is 2.63MB whereas previously it was 5.34MB, that's a data size reduction of 51%

I should mention that a few months back when I've played Underworld using this mod, I've encountered a bug in the Thailand ending cutscene - Zip's facetime on Lara's laptop was replaced by an image of a weapon. Reloading fixed this bug but hopefully it's less likely to happen now because of the reduced tpf size.


The white line under the loading screens title is now removed. I did this because when the loading is done; the text, spinning circle and the background image fades into gameplay, but the white line just disappears without fading which is noticeable, so it's better to remove it.

Changelog 1.31:
  • I've reduced the width of the PDA screen because it seemed a little too wide.
  • The small document icon is lowered by 2px to better align with the title text.

I am currently working on PDA mark II, perhaps it will be more appealing than my current version. Thoughts?

Update: There's now a thread for the new PDA design which can be found here.

Thank you, your feedback means the world to me

And of course, here's the link for the tpf file and textures for the mod shown in the previous reply.
https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...gW?usp=sharing

Also just so you know, TRU.EXE_0x0CBCE486.tga removes the white line from loading screens, if you don't want that then delete this texture


Changelog 1.33:
  • The base of the dark grey boxes are slightly extended.
