The Fury Hybrid HUD 1.1
The Fury is an add-on HUD that combines the functions of the Thirst and Rage HUDs into a single HUD. It will not register you with the Bloodlines system, and does not include Fangs or Claws, or the Nexus object which you need to complete bite and claw attacks and do many other functions. In order to use the Fury HUD, you will need to own either the Thirst or Rage HUD to register for Bloodlines and get the fangs and / or claws and Nexus.
You can purchase the Fury at the following locations in Second Life, from the vendor in the Bloodlines store: Bloodlines Midland, Bloodlines East, and Bloodlines Frontier. After purchasing the Fury, you will be delivered a crate. To open the crate, you must rez it in-world by dragging it from your inventory to the ground, or right-clicking and selecting 'wear'. Then, you can left-click on it to unpack it in your inventory. When you unpack it, you will find the following items:
- HUD [Hybrid::Bloodlines]
Heads-Up Display (HUD)
Your HUD is what you will primarily use to play Bloodlines. It contains tools, settings, and buttons that you can use to control your fangs and claws and interact with other players. To use your HUD, find it in your inventory, right-click on it, and select 'wear'. By default, it attaches to the bottom HUD position, but you can attach it to any HUD position. You should see it appear at the bottom of your screen
