Default Menu PDA mod



Menu PDA


Here's my second attempt at creating an acceptable PDA design for Tomb Raider Underworld. The intention of this mod is to imitate accessing the game's menu screen rather than the PDA hardware itself, hence the name 'Menu PDA' mod.


There are three backdrops to choose from:

Med Sea (Image 1) | Thailand (Image 2) | Jan Mayen (Image 3)

The backdrops are official concept arts and came from tombraiderchronicles.

Notes:
  • All PDA images have been given rounded corners, except for the ones with the black grid background.
  • The white line is removed 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. See images 4 and 5.

The backdrop is an official concept art of the Med Sea as found on tombraiderchronicles (8th image)

Modifications:

  • The white line on loading screens is 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.




Very beautiful

I've also made an alternative version if anyone would like a lighter background.

Update: Just had to redo this version because the corners didn't have anti-aliasing, whoops.

Just made a Thailand version, I wasn't expecting much but it ended up looking pretty good.

Also the ice version that I referred to as 'Arctic' is more likely a Jan Mayen concept art so I changed the tpf file name to reflect that.
