I'm trying to help you man I really am
Don't even try n fix it throw the idea away and keep the old one.
The current one is fine how it is.
I never really cared for the HUD but compared to the new one it really makes me really THANKFUL to have the one we have now.
But if you do decide to ignore the feedback and send it live anyways,
Please please please give us an option to choose between the two.
Some (ahem, most) of us like our info more then a little bit more of clear space.
