I already know how to add a number to the target ID box so I can point at teammates and buildings to find out exactly how much health they have. But I can't find a way to do it for the Engineer's HUD so I can read the health of buildings without having to point at them. I can find the file that controls the relevant panels but can't find how to access the health value that the regular bar display uses (i.e. tried parameters such as %health% but it doesn't work).

Interesting - how do you add the number to find teammates health? – Konerak Nov 21 '11 at 17:21
You edit SpectatorGUIHealth.res in resource/ui to include some CExLabels attached to %Health%, which provides health as a number. I'm looking for how to do the same with with the top-left building display because %Health% doesn't work for it. – Toomai Nov 22 '11 at 2:14

It's not possible, as no hooks for this are currently available.
