Hide objectives HUD option

Please give us the ability to hide the objective/quests HUD in multiplayer. It’s unnecesary for most players to portray the same objectives over and over in competitive matches, and also it’s annoying to lose 1/6th of our screen size to that UI.



yeah i looking for this too… i sick with notification “Build Wonder or capture sacred site” why we need this if we can saw sacred site in mini map.

Yeah, the objectives showing all the time just gets in the way. It’s not hard to remember that you have the same two objectives every game. (I got tired of seeing them after just one or two games in theTech Stress.)

And even if the objectives vary or will vary a lot in future game updates, the player should still have the ability to hide them unless and until they want to see them again.

I like that you had to click to view them in AoE2, but that AoE2’s overall solutuon was not the most efficient or user friendly. A better way should be devised for AoE4 where you don’t need to stop what you’re doing or pause the game to view a big panel blocking your view.

A collapsible, semi-transparent, neat and tidy, small font panel in the corner that unfolds and collapses, with the info on it, is probably all that is needed.


Unless I’m horribly mistaken, making objectives toggleable is really easy and should be added as an option asap just for the sake of it.


I’m bumping this after commenting on a similar thread.

The win conditions taking up such a huge portion of the screen is just annoying. AoE4 is a beautiful-looking game. We don’t need all that text covering up a huge chunk of it.

Just let us toggle this with a hotkey or button in singleplayer/campaign and multiplayer. It’s been over a year already!


The wonder and sacred timers are crucial but they could be much smaller and the landmark counter I guess is useful too but could also be smaller. Maybe they should be hidden until the countdowns start or landmarks start falling.

making them appear only when countdown is actually happening would be a decent solution, same with landmark and sacret sites, only appearing when 1 is taken or in case of landmark destroyed
again talking toggleable options, let people that are okay with current setup still have access to it, but with toggles for anyone that wants different display or none at all (similar to how you can toggle seeing player name and what age they are on middle right above the minimap and notifications)

I’d like the option to shrink it all down to just symbols, with the numbers/bars next to them, instead of all that text, so it could still be there, but would take up WAY less space.
