I think this thread shows that everyone has different preferences and that the best solution might be a HUD UI Config screen similar to what other games do so everyone can adjust their layout as desired.
Just support some basic operations like undocking/repositioning certain UI elements, change font family/color, be able to show or hide UI elements, with maybe some other options.
Personally I am not a fan of the scanlines, or the HUD being wrapped on the helmet vs having a flat HUD (mostly because it causes aliasing on the font when it curves). There are also times where I want to see the battle ship numbers or view team comms but we have no control over when that is displayed.
We also need an in-game key binding menu as well at some point. I had to leave the start of the event yesterday because my key binds got wiped with the patch and I needed to rebind my missile hotkey and it probably took me 5 minutes to do.
