Default [Work in progress] UI - Player status bar

Heya everyone,

I have been working on my own version of the Player Bar/Systems Pane that sits in the top left of the game space (name, level, shields, plating etc) and thought I would post a preview of them as they currently are, for some feedback or suggestions .

Do keep in mind they are still fairly new, and I will see if I can add some more details to each version based on race. I currently have different colored versions of the window which is chosen based on your ship's race. Here are a few examples:

Those look really nice! My only suggestion would be to move the shield/armor/structure/engergy icons directly to the left of the bars, not in a separate panel, and also remove the glowiness from them -- having them on the right in a separate panel feels disjointed from the thing that they're labelling.

So something like this, you think?

That definitely reads a lot more clearly to me!
