I enjoy looking at some pixel font UIs because they look really awesome and there is some really cool designs floating around that revolve around pixel fonts, I just personally don't feel like they are functional for me anymore somehow. I guess I "grew" out of them? Maybe the font is magic?
    I recently decided to stop using pixel fonts, because I want to try making UIs that fit in better with the game world. I've never liked LUI on account of that it looks like a spaceship cockpit, and I've realized that the currently in-vogue UI style (pixel fonts, single-pixel black borders, flat textures, transparent backgrounds) really kind of does the same thing wrong. Unfortunately for me it turns out that actually being creative is harder than figuring out how to set border widths, and so I don't have anything that actually looks good yet (http://i.imgur.com/xkpsrov.png), but I think I have the right idea.
    Come on, die young.

    I remember finding your blog awhile ago somehow. Really nice UIs, particularly the Priest. It's so clean.

    Goodness me you need to release this ASAP. That is beautiful.

    Re; Kreff: I will do soon, just so busy lately. I'm tweaking it a bit also, so looks a little different to the one quoted.
    Just want to add myself to the list of people saying that it looks awesome : P
    Hope you'll be able to share it with the rest of us interface-impaired paesants!

    These are all extremely cool, I'm a fan of minimalism, especially with pixel fonts and these are just super awesome. Makes me kinda sad that you only post the addons you used and not the actual UI because sometimes recreating a work of art is near impossible! Really good work

    This. I was addicted to pixel fonts in so many of my UI projects, but I've found some REALLY clean sans serif fonts and such and it just feels better. With all the Weak Auras and random stuff I need to track with Heroic Raiding, I found pixel fonts less ideal for me to use on my UI's. I still appreciate great design, though. Just not for me at this point.
    Thanks to Duskmoon for the awesome Sig/Avatar/Banner!

    Comments are more than welcome (make sure to check some dungeon action around 1 minute into the vid)!!

    I really like it! 2 questions though:
    1. What happens when/if you do 25 mands raids? Raid finder for instance.
    2. Im a right, when I say you dont have any unitframes? If you do, where are they located?

    Much appreciated.

    Hey there!!

    1. Basically I have two different vuhdo layouts. First is for solo to 10man and the second one is for 11 to 25. The correct layout is loaded automatically based on the number of people you're grouped with.
    The downside is I sometimes have to move the weakauras bar... but at least I designed it so that 15 people (in the second layout) takes the exact same space as 10 (in the first layout) so I don't have to move the cooldowns frame around when I get into a 15man BG...
    EDIT - found a screenshot of 20man Flex



    2. They're not your everyday unitframes in that they only display very little information, can't be clicked and are displayed through weak-auras but technically I do :
    - The player unitframe is reduced to the mana bar
    - The target unitframe is the text you can see top left of the vudho frames. It displays the name of your target as well as its % of remaining health in case its below 100% (big up to Touchy who's wa string I stole - from his tank UI - for the colored health display).
    Its very minimal but in the end I don't think you need anything else as a PVE healer.
    Might add proper boss frames at some point if I'm not happy with DBM's... in the spirit of what I had done previously

    Anywho.. It looks awesome, although I'm not personally a fan of the mana bar at the side(I assume the bar above mana tide is infact your mana bar). The look and the way it works, I could get used to. But placement is, imo, way to far from focus point on the screen.

    Something I'd like to see would be some work on bigwigs; bars, positions..
    Other than that, nothing comes to mind..

    I hope you're gonna do 20m mythic in the coming expansion?
    Update
    Not done yet but its better already right? I much prefer the mana bar where it is now.
    Will post a new vid soon!

    Looks great, frantik! I've been looking for something similar to this for some time. I am currently using Skullflower's edit of ElvUI, which is somewhat similar. What addon are you using to create the chatframe panel? - if you don't mind me asking :-)

    I use KGPanels to do the chat and skada backgrounds. I would really like for there to be an option in ElvUI that let's you use the chat backdrops without the "tab bar" on top, but alas there is none and I had to use another addon to do that

    Thanks! I will probably be including my SavedVariables folder with future posts, since I've found a convenient way of doing that now.

    The placement of the bars on the right (cooldowns, I assume) seems a little arbitrary - are they lined up with anything, horizontally or vertically? Could they be? Same with the tooltip.

    If http://i.imgur.com/46RhGFl.png is your own castbar, do you need the text on it? I usually have it disabled on account of that I know what I'm casting, and if you disabled the text you could move those icons down a bit. Are those icons cooldowns, too, by the way? How many groups of cooldown timers do you have?
    Come on, die young.

    If you're feeling brave you can try the latest BW alpha which has the Elv style without the requirement of having ElvUI or the skinning addon. It took me a few hours digging into the ElvUI code but I'm hoping the style looks exact same as the one provided by the skinning addon, whether the user is using Elv or not. The style in BW will overwrite the style provided by the Elv skinning addon so it's important it looks the same.

    The bars on the right were bigwigs test bars just to show placement, I wasnt sure where to put the big bars
    I like having the name of the spell im casting on my cast bar

    Hey guys; could use some critiques on my current UI. It's mostly just ElvUI + lots of Weakauras. Trying to be as minimalist as a tank can be

    Yea, way better..
    Key things I like, is how you've taken away playerframe, and targetframe..
    Also, I see you moved on from the old nameplates? - I liked the Docs, but this is a nice change. They took up alot of memory in bigger raids..
    I assume the timers on the left and right of the castbar, is for something like riptide?

    Something to consider maybe.. A new way to keep track of raid cds, whats ready etc..
    Also change fonts on bossmod to the same as raidframes. Maybe scale down fontsize on combat text.

    Ill update if I think of something else..

    I was doing it while thinking to some other UI so it's not 100% original but I'm pretty happy with what I did.

    Out of combat :


    In combat :
    Oh my gawd, I love that the font just pops out like that! Could you pretty please tell me what addons you used?

    EDIT: I just started playing WoW again and currently leveling a undead warlock! I would love to have ideas about UI packs or so! I kinda want it to be ''dark-ish'' but not so whack'd with addons, you know keeping it abit roleplay-ish haha!

    Thanks mina!

    On nameplates
    Yeah like the change also. Making the Docs looking the way they did involved a lot of LUA work in the original files which I cba with ^^
    I think seeing your allies names was very useful in 10 but will be less important in 20. Also, I moved away from click healing to mouseover macros (much much much better) so if I see someone in a bad spot, I can just mouseover heal them or target them and cast heals.

    Timers
    Yes, left one is stacks of Earth Shield and right one is Riptide CD. It turns orange when close to 0 and then red with it's at 0 (you can see it in the vid).

    Raid CDs
    Not sure about this one... Things like Raidcooldowns or Ora3 was really perfect for 10man but might be too spammy for bigger raid sizes. Might have to move to something in the shape of BLRaidcooldowns.

    Fonts
    Yes for DBM. NOOOO for combat text That combat text is completely awesome in that it really lets you check out the efficiency of your heals at a glance. Once you try it you'll love it!!
    Big up to Jahzrun from whom I pretty much copied it.
