    UI Ideas!

    Currently using ElvUI although pretty sick of the sight of it ;D Time for a Revamp!!

    Thought a forum full of fellow druids was possibly the best place to come.

    Any Ideas? I'm not really bothered about specific addons and would prefer something nice and clean.

    Well, Elvui is the nicest and cleanest UI there is... :P
    I can see what you see not - vision milky then eyes rot. When you turn, they will be gone - whispering their hidden song...

    Always choose a lazy person to do the difficult job!
    Why?
    He will find an easy way to do it.

    You haven't provided any screenshots of your UI so I can only assume you're using the plain, old, generic, standard ElvUI without changing it much at all.
    Try having a good play around with it and see if you can change it enough that you start to like it :P

    I did the same and ended up with my UI looking like this

    Pretty nice take on ElvUI tbh! I should maybe give this a shot. The reason I was using it originally was for the easy configuration so as you can guess I didn't really edit it much more than standard

    Never really enjoyed a too empty screen, I must admot. ElvUI has been a good choice of use. I have been looking for special themes as well, but most current UI's follow the same view of floating bars and the likes.
    If you disapprove of moderation, seek an Admin or Global Moderator.
    Stuff can be fixed, just get enough glue or duct tape!
    Apparently, if you make a person jump off a cliff but you stop him from doing it successful in ArcheAge, you get the honor but you don't get the points - fun thought.

    I really still would recommend Elv, small footprint. Any bits I can't customise enough turn it off and add a single addon. IMHO.

    Definitely in that camp as well. With many altsI'd much rather have more information than I need at any time.

    Left my setup fairly similar to the out-of-the-box ElvUI config, but cleaned up frame alignments, colors, etc. to my liking. Referred to by my friends as the 'Rainbow UI' since my unitframes and default castbars/buffs are all class colors, so it's very bright during raids, not 2dark2edgy like most ElvUIs I see. Set some Aurabars to be colorful so I don't need to read and can just see what color a bar is and know what buff it is. Doesn't show but raid frames go above chat. Link restriction is busting my balls, so:

    Here is a fanmade version of Supersdw's UI... Works like a charm.

    I'm sticking to ElvUI for the simplicity. I've been modifying mine quite a bit, but it usually breaks as I'm trying to get it to do too many things at once.

    Supersdw's UI, (and Lorgok, for that matter) is a nice simplistic touch, and nice alternative to the full package of Elv.
    You can also just start working on your own, taking inspiration or startingpoint in any of the modpacks available.

    Couple questions. How did you get skada to show and embed 2 windows into your right chat at the same time?

    Also, how did you skin your chat boxes with the data text bars underneath them like that?

    With Skada you just create an extra window in the config options, but with ElvUI I had to edit the lua to get the bars separate from the chat windows.

    Any chance I could get a PM with the edited LUA section that does that?

    You can do that also with an addon for elvui tukui.org/addons/index.php?act=view&id=128. After installed you must look under skins in elvui config en scroll down. Click here skada (or recount) and reload you ui. That if you show scada or recount its in the 2nd chat frame in elvui.

    If you like to see my ui youtube.com/watch?v=kr9xaU9KwnM (video show HC Tortos with me as POV). But my elvui is 90% default look.

    Sorry for my bad english I hope you all can understand me
