Glad you're enjoying this new layout as much as I am! It's nice
I'll get to work on a map right away (since I'm fresh back to the game since June) and also, find a decent skin for my action bars!
decided to redo my ui again last night.. i know people hate non transparent chat windows, and more than one.. but it's what i like.
once again started from QuseUI and changed a bit. wish i could use a better looking bar addon but bartender is just so easy to use. raid frames use Mlight healer raid frames. stacked above minimap. (also i need to move my damage meters)
(STILL CAN'T POST IMAGES/LINKS just remove the space)

What are those bars and timers next to your tooltip?
Assuming this is Elv right? Looks very nice, given me some ideas
My current UI in progress that I copied from Kaitain:
Need to find a better way to display all the buffs/debuffs I need to track in raids. Haven't found or seen a good solution yet. Tips are welcome.
The idea behind this UI is to make it look nice but still be highly functional if you want to perform at top level in raids, which I feel very few UIs out there do.
UI in action (highly unfinished): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oW_FOENws98
You sure you wouldn't like to abbreviate those names?
Here's a piece of code(courtesy of touchymcfeel) that was meant for Pitbull, but that I think would work for WA(I'm assuming that's what you've used):
also, do you really need to be reminded of your level, race and class? Wouldn't that be fairly obvious?Code:local abbr = Name(unit) if abbr:len() > 20 and abbr:find(" ") then abbr = abbr:gsub("([^ ]+) +", function(text) return text:sub(1,1) .. ". " end) end return "%s", abbr;
and, thick outlines aren't very pretty.
if you were going for pure functionality you wouldn't be doing some of the things you're doing. Using the same fonts, textures, shapes and placement goes a long way in making things predictable, with the added benefit of "not looking like shit"
Just a question to everybody out there that has these streamlined clean UI's without any actionbars: Do you just toggle them off for these pictures or are you memorizing 100+ keybinds? I just find it hard to believe one can remember so many keybinds to have no actionbars at all out while playing.
What I meant was that I am not going to remove functionality to make it pretty. I use same font except for damage meter because the font I use for unitframes is very pixelated at small sizes. My placement of stuff are ideal for me or any other player that wants to perform at max level. That much I know.

Wow, thats just impossible in my world. Are you savant? J/K. Really pretty UI's though, I might borrow it for my Boomie/Warlock would it work as well as it does with your sp?
