The HUD functions are organised as follows:

HUD Buttons

The Journal of the HUD has three sections: Plot, Weather, and Announcements. It opens the Plot session by default, where it shows a summary of the most recent or current plot, as well as it being possible to navigate to earlier plots by touching the page on the left.

If you touch “Weather,” the weather forecast for the next 3 days appears, as well as an animation showing you the current weather.

If you touch “Announcements,” then different things may happen. A student will see the Sim Announcement, Professor Announcement, and House Announcement:

An adult will see only the Sim Announcement; a Professor will see Sim Announcement and Professor Announcement, and will also be able to set a new Professor announcement; a Head of House will also be able to see and edit their House Announcement.
