    Post Your Minimalist UI

    So I know there is a nice big UI post already, but I just wanted to see if there are others out there who enjoy having an almost blank screen.
    Well... as blank as possible while still having all the functionality required to play the game well...

    What tricks and things do you guys do to hide / not show parts of what most would consider normal UI parts?



    I personally try to memorize as many of my buttons as I can, and then hide the bars. Though I play warlock... and have like 80 buttons, and use them all
    I also have a macro that changes my UI from general raid UI, to PvP UI. I.E. Hide Omen, show raid frames, change some other minor settings and such.

    Is there a guide on how to set up a minimalists UI with tips etc?
    Would be nice to try out how much I can minimalise my UI.

    share your experience, sir!

    This UI was made a loooong time ago (lol crappy gears) but it's still one of my favorites just for how small it is. I had a terrible computer and it ran very nicely.

    nice, nicely done.

    I personally prefer to keep chat shown just because in my experience, there is always some one, or some thing talking, and it ends up being shown anyway.

    Well the bars are Bongos, which have a setting to hide them, unless you mouse over them.
    The little box in the middle, that goes around chat is eepanels2.
    Minimap button bag + squeenix help a ton with the minimap.
    Most any unit frame will do, I went with AG over Pit for a long time because pit uses more memory. In the end I went to pit because Pitbull has Mouse over frames, and AG does not (that I know of.)
    Also, Chatmod helps organize and make the chat box look better.

    As far as the macro I was talking about, it's mostly just
    /omen standby
    /ag raidframes show
    /grid hide
    (Theres more, and those arent the exact words, but you get the idea. All mods usually have /commands, so just make a macro that will change them.)

    Actually this UI and a slightly less minimalistic version are already up on Curse, have been for months. XD

    The mods will most likely be out of date, just be sure not to update SharedMedia or CyCircled.

    Why show execute though? To see when they are below 20%?

    Re: Post Your Minimalist UI



    My apologies for the large picture.

    I may decide to remove the chat window and minimap/omen windows, then parent eepanels to omen so that it only shows in a raid. That is for the future though, I don't have time currently.
