Show us your Kerbal Engineer HUD preset!

The Kerbal Engineer Redux mod made by @cybutek is a fantastic add-on for KSP, and it has a wast library of data for us, and mods to use and calculate with.

So wast even, that one might ask the question: What's the best Heads Up Display setup for my kind of mission?

Well, this is the place. If you have a preset that you like, share it with us!

The presets are saved in .XML format, and you can find them here: C:\ ... \Kerbal Space Program\GameData\KerbalEngineer\Presets

To start off, here's mine:

For ascending from a body and orbital maneuvers, I use this one:

Spoiler

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ArrayOfSettingItem xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  <SettingItem>
    <Name>preset</Name>
    <Value xsi:type="Preset">
      <Abbreviation>SPC-HUD</Abbreviation>
      <IsHud>true</IsHud>
      <IsHudBackground>false</IsHudBackground>
      <Name>SPACE HUD</Name>
      <ReadoutNames>
        <string>Orbital.ApoapsisHeight</string>
        <string>Orbital.PeriapsisHeight</string>
        <string>Miscellaneous.Separator</string>
        <string>Vessel.DeltaVCurrentTotal</string>
        <string>Vessel.ThrustToWeight</string>
        <string>Miscellaneous.Separator</string>
        <string>Rendezvous.RelativeInclination</string>
        <string>Orbital.NodeTimeToHalfBurn</string>
      </ReadoutNames>
    </Value>
  </SettingItem>
</ArrayOfSettingItem>

 

And for landing, I have this:

Spoiler

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ArrayOfSettingItem xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
  <SettingItem>

    <Value xsi:type="Preset">
      <Abbreviation>LND-HUD</Abbreviation>
      <IsHud>true</IsHud>
      <IsHudBackground>false</IsHudBackground>
      <Name>LAND HUD</Name>
      <ReadoutNames>
        <string>Surface.AltitudeTerrain</string>
        <string>Surface.Slope</string>
        <string>Miscellaneous.Separator</string>
        <string>Surface.VerticalSpeed</string>
        <string>Surface.HorizontalSpeed</string>
        <string>Miscellaneous.Separator</string>
        <string>Surface.Biome</string>
        <string>Miscellaneous.Separator</string>
        <string>Surface.ImpactBiome</string>
        <string>Vessel.SuicideBurnDistance</string>
      </ReadoutNames>
    </Value>
  </SettingItem>
</ArrayOfSettingItem>

 I'm happy to share my Settings folder.

 

that would be nice, your layout looks very close to how I would do it. Thanks in advance.

I have a 1440 screen too. The default KER font can be hard to read sometimes though.

There's a dropbox link with the full Settings folder. Just delete your GameData/KerbalEngineer/Settings folder and replace with this one

Don't use the HUDs, use the float boxes.  Gives the readouts a background, much easier to read.

Thank you, already tried this too. The problem is not the contrast (you could even toggle a background for the HUDs too, btw) but the problem is the resolution of the font. KERs font just looks like crappy resolution compared to the rest of my UI. I can hardly distinguish between an 8 and a 6.

I use a 1440 screen at native res, a 1080Ti and plenty of RAM, CPU etc. Game looks very crisp, just KER is super hard to read.

Thank you. I will try this tonight.
