Did anyone tried/saw system to make some text staitc via TextTag overlay?

So it would keep adjusted to player's camera position wherever it is, remains visible regardless distance and so on. This would allow to use more customized HUD

This is possible to do, but a bit complicated. One part of the problem is the maths required to convert 2D screen coordinates into 3D game coordinates based on the current camera setup. The second part of the problem is getting the current camera setup, since the height of the game camera adjusts to surrounding terrain and is thus never precisely where it says it is. There was a system at the Hive that supposedly solved this issue pretty well, here it is.
