"Red alert" Nova Lux

The Nova Lux comes in four different flavours: for green alert, yellow alert (not shown), red alert, and lastly, as one of the more modern HUDs, the Nova Lux has a special version which shows when docked.

In red alert the Reticle, Shield and Energy indicators are grouped around the crosshairs.

The Nova Lux manages 6 MFDs, which are placed as shown above.

It also works with widescreen monitors. And is now compatible with HUD Selector
