Since that topic made it s way here i ll make a clear description of what was previously said in the other one.
The crane hud can be integrated as a part of "hints" that way it will make it possible to disable it through the option already available or an other option dedicated to that part of the ui.
That way after being used to the control it is possible to hide the ui.
If they can manage to allow key binding great, but key binding is something you can do easily on pc since we have the keyboard(more possibility), when it come to console user there is a finite amount of key combination you can make before reaching saturation thus the choice of the option.
Plus at a certain point you will remember your key and have no use of that ui anymore.
You have a point, maybe a combination of a keybid for PC users (wich should be fairly simple, the amount of keybind in the list today is pretty empty also)
plus adding an option in settings for a autohide or even a re-arrange/move Hud feature for all players, even console.
