    Once you get used to using minimal UIs and design them to be functional you might actually be surprised. Just the smallest bit of a UI could show a huge amount of information.

    This screenshot here shows pretty much everything you'd need to know as a shadow priest, buffs, debuffs on both you and your target in a nice minimal way: http://www.wowuigallery.com/bb-galle...510_141726.jpg

    and again here: http://www.wowuigallery.com/bb-galle...710_114311.jpg

    as a tank. I could see my threat on the target (the small red bar above my player frame), I am tracking my own buffs above my frame and I am able to see my debuffs on the target as well as any buffs they may gain for taunt rotations. Then the ToT frame shows the ToT debuff so I am able to taunt from them if they receive a debuff.

    One improvement I did make to the above UI was placing my own debuffs under my player frame so I knew if I was standing in something or had a nasty debuff I was able to ask for a taunt if my co-tank was too slow.

    But thanks !
    Look's awesome the UI you put together there, Feel like `Sharing ? ^^

    If a minimal UI isn't functional, you just didn't design it well. It's about showing the exact information you need, in the place it's most easy to use. And in most cases, people need to ask themselves WHAT they actually have to know and when. Threat-meters showing 9 people etc. is just plain useless and only takes up places. Combat text in a lot of cases is useless too as you won't even see most of it. It's all in the small things.

    But also things like the use of colors, textures, fonts, sizes, positioning, ... truly everything.

    This is the only picture I still have of an UI I used, it's my last and in my opinion the best. Pleasing to the eye, very minimal and so easy to use.

    It looked the exact same in a raiding environment (just 10 grid boxes instead of 5 of course) and I really wouldn't know what it needed to show more. A shame I don't have another picture in a raid environment.


    p.s. Oh the nostalgia Carebear. All the WIP's, in the end they made some damn fine UI's though.

    The one with all the Power Auras in the middle of the screen... I just have those active so you can see some of the ones I use. That's not all of them, and they don't all clutter up my screen at the same time like that under normal circumstances.

    Edit: Got em, thanks Treeston!

    As I mentioned a few posts above, I just can't help myself playing around with UI's.

    Got some inspiration watching Andosoup's (spelling?) "version" of Care's UI, so I decided to play with it myself, keep in mind it's not much that has changed. simply just added a few things to the mix.

    You can say it's a lot of CareUI, some Andosoup inspiration and a little dash of Ishtara


    Anyway



    For some reason I have some faded black border around the upper actionbar, can't seem to get rid of it. Anyone that have any idea? (Ractionbuttonstyler/Ractionbarstyler)

    Current UI

    In combat:



    Annotated:



    I've since changed the font in TidyPlates to match the rest of my UI. Anyone have an idea if there's an easy way to do the same with the Power Auras timers?

    The three red timers across the top arc are Pyroblast dot, Ignite dot, and Living Bomb, from left to right.

    From like July, when I stopped playing. Gonna sorta remake it, changing things like buff duration text and quest tracker.

    Could a mod do me a favor and link it please.

    Unfortunatly the text in poweraruas timers is not text, but images and therefore not something you can just switch to another font.
    I do recall vaugely this being brought up before, and there may be a tool to extract the characters of a font as images, but it won't likely be a straightforward process to get them into powerauras.

    Your screenshots are always a little fuzzy!

    As for the rabs, maybe they're unlocked? type /rabs to check. I haven't logged in for 3 months so I can't really help all that much. ):

    I really like your POWA setup. Any chance of you sharing it?

    I know, dunno why they get all fuzzy! pretty damn annoying actually. Dunno if it could have anything doing with me playing in fullscreen Windowed mode?

    As for rabs, that faded black border seem to be on all the other action bars, except for the main one, that one gets skinned as planned. But Rabs is locked, checked the lua file aswell.


    Edit: Fixed the rabs issue, but replacing it with m_actionbars from mono ui :P

    Also a chance to test the ss quality in fullscreen :P



    Think it improved slightly :P

    My Ui hasn't changed one bit since I uploaded it in September.
    It all works just fine with the newest patch as long as the addons are updated.
    I have been working on switching my buff addon from SBF to Raven for the Mists release.
