NEW WITH HUD 4.20170710 -- The latest ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ HUD has three exciting new features: (1) An integrated Update Transmogrifier so you do not need to set up a separate, stand-alone CSLUT when doing bulk upgrades of plants using the HUD, (2) Automatic updating of the HUD itself so you'll always have the latest plant update tools (as well as other HUD goodies we may add), an (3) graphic preloading so the HUD will display faster and more smoothly.
SETTING UP THE HUDSetting up the HUD is easy. Just click "HUD On" in the menu of every plant you want to control using the HUD. Then wear the HUD. Presto!
Version 4.19.903 plants offer an option for assigning plants to one of six HUD groups. HUD groups can be controlled independently of each other. Plants that aren't assigned to a HUD group can also be controlled with the HUD, giving you essentially seven groupings for HUD control! To set a plant to a HUD group, click the plant's Advanced Menu, then click the Grouping button, and select a group.
Automagic HUD Updates: Beginning with ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ HUD Version 4.20170710, the HUD automatically checks with our update server to ensure that you have the latest HUD version. This means that you will receive a copy of a new HUD automatically if we've added features or changed the Transmogrifier ovule version in the HUD. The update process takes a few moments and is completely automatic! If there's a new HUD for you, you'll get a brief message in chat and a delivery within a few moments of putting the HUD on (or logging in while wearing it).
