    I am thinking of designing my own overlay but only so far as to design the frame for the camera in order to keep it to a minimum - ie. less clutter.

    I am contemplating designing my own alerts but I am hoping that this frame is a start.

    Really depends on what you're streaming but that kind of would start to shit me if it were just a straight FPS game stream.

    Of course if you're doing a guide/viewer interactive content it would be a different story.

    My plan is to be a variety streamer so i am hoping that is is sufficient for the main game screen. I do have to think about the starting, offline, and BRB screens, and maybe notifications.

    Small camera frame with minimal border is what I like to see.

    As long as your chat is active the overlays are irrelevant.

    Nice work man. I really need to fix all of my graphics. Not particularly happy with them atm. I may commission someone to make me a package however. Ive tried to redesign mine every time and always end up unhappy with the result.

    my next problem is getting used to talking to myself while streaming. I may start off with no cam and then when i get more relaxed with streaming then chuck up a cam.

    I like it. I would take out Mozzie. As you said, you wanted to stream a variety of games. This places you as a siege streamer. Just my 2c.
    Im actually going to start streaming tomorrow. Ended up buying a package from VBI as it took that load off my chest.

    i like it but do you only play siege? i feel like when you create a banner and it has a character on it, then people assume that thats all you play?

    I've tweaked the offline screen a bit so the hexagon bg isn't as bright/"in your face". I am still a bit iffy about the intermission and BRB screen as I don't know what other information should go there or if I want that frame for the stream chat to appear in. Once I get an idea I can have a template.

    I'd add socials to the BRB screen and that's really it. With the scene I created for BRB, I also added so background music that plays on a loop.
    For the intermission screen, I used the chat box. I kind of figured that i'd eventually use it as a "chatting" screen too so figured it would be good to have chat on there.

    Hope that helps
