Interaction actions not shown with HUD disabled
New, NormalPublic


In experimental with the new status icons interaction popups (looting/opening/closing/crafting/eating/etc) are now hidden when you have hidden the hud. This is annoying, you need to know when you can interact with something, and how are you to browse between crafting recipes if the icons won't show up?

If intentional, can these be put on a separate toggle? I HATE playing with the hud up but I want the interaction thingys to show. Hiding HUD is not just for taking screenshots, it is a preference.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64

Steps To Reproduce

Disable HUD and try to perform any action that requires interaction with an object, you will not get any visual cues.

I'd like to stress the importance of this being fixed. Disabling HUD should NOT also disable on-screen prompts for looting, crafting or any other action/interaction. Again, if this was intentional due to content creators wanting the ability to disable said prompts, implement a separate toggle to do so!

I prefer playing with HUD disabled to have a clean screen, but right now I am forced to have it enabled since playing becomes too impractical without the prompts.

Please fix this as soon as possible.

Additionally, when hiding HUD the separator line between health & blood and the other icons will return after a few seconds of hiding the HUD. You can get it to go away again by bringing back the HUD and then hiding it again, but after about 5-10 seconds the line appears again.

Still no change as of 1.01 experimental, february 07. Please, it is just not possible to actually play without HUD enabled due to this. Put interaction prompts on a separate toggle please, disabling HUD is a preference, not just a gimmick for screenshots.
