You could spend hours trying to come up with a nice combination of colors for your HUD in Elite: Dangerous by following our guide. Or you could have a look at our Top 5 below!

Note: We used the help of Reddit as well as a great collection thread in the official Elite: Dangerous forums to help us out with this guide. The first one is the author’s personal favorite.

White HUD w/ Blue Highlights and Red Enemies
White HUD w/ Blue Highlights and Red Enemies
By BrainKatana

This theme is one of the rare themes that is primarily based in white but still maintains blue highlights and red enemies. It’s our personal favorite and creates a nice clean atmosphere in your spaceship.

Killer Copper
Killer Copper
By Commander Danicus

Killer Copper is an apt name for this theme which features light colors throughout with a nice mix of blue, orange, and red highlights. Another no non-sense, clean kind of theme.

Federation

If you’re not too keen on changing things too much, the Federation theme may fit the bill. It keeps most of the orange, though in a more subtle manner, and still maintains good visibility into friend and foe.

Deep Sky Blue / Burley Wood

By Artemis Zodiac

If you’re really sick of the orange, this theme has almost no hint of the original theme that Frontier Developments provides us with. Instead you get a base of light blues and soft white highlights.

Dark Deep Sky Blue / Gold
Dark Deep Sky Blue / Gold
By Draco25240

This theme is for the pilot that’s not afraid of a bit of “pop of color” in their cockpit. A solid base of dark deep sky blue is offset by bright gold and red highlights. You definitely won’t miss that pirate trying to sneak up on you!
