First off, right off the bat I want to thank anyone who even takes a moment to help me in anyway possible. So to those of you reading this. Thank you!
I've always been a UI nut, constantly tweaking it when I see something new I like, or moving things around to make them appeal more to me. Problem is, I only understand UI building at the very basic level. I can mess with WeakAuras a little bit, somewhat configure unit frames, etc. But, I cannot really get into the real fun stuff, "eye candy" if you will.
Here's my Dilema:
I can envision the UI I'd like to have, I can tell you all the cool details, the fancy designs, etc. I just cannot put what's in my head into the game =/ ! What i'd like is maybe some advice on how exactly to get what I want to appear, seeing as I highly doubt anyone would just make a UI for me lol. Wither it be guides, that go IN-DEPTH on how to customize certain aspects of UI's, telling me which addons would be best for the features/look I'm trying to achieve, or even just ahnds on working with me/linking their codes if it's similar to what I want. Anything would be great, I'm tired of looking at these amazing UI's and not being able to do much with mine.
Here is the current Idea I have for my UI. I like a Minimalist look to my ui while still containing all the data I need to know in a quick and convenient manner.
I'll go over each setup now...
I'd really like to try out using Vertical UnitFrames instead of the usual Horizontal. That part is easy, you put them on top of each other. DING DING DING score one Emaias! Again it comes down to the customization. I really like the style that it shows in this picture here
This is a debate here, I've used both in the past and while tellmewhen is a little more user friendly, WeakAuras has a lot more customization to it. A few examples that have really captured my attention lately are
I really like the way they use both a saturated aura/timer -> Unsaturated when ready. Also the "Progress Bar?" for Chaos Bolt Burning Embers (?) I feel like I could do a lot if I only knew how he went about customizing them
What I like here is the style of the icons, the shadowy appeal, and then the "Timer Overlay?" that he uses. I feel like if I mixed this with the one above it would make for a cool effect. But again I cannot figure out how to duplicate them. I asked them both in PM's but no response. I figured it would be Progress Texture for the one above, but I cannot figure out how to add custom icons with that particular feature
I think this will suffice for now. I can use these features as a base for the UI, and if people are willing to help, and continue to once I get the base done to my liking I can keep going from there. Again thank you to everyone who either took the time to read this, or was a help! Every little thing helps trust me!
Also a big thanks to:
For giving me the inspiration in my new hopefully(!) new UI!
