Thread: Post Your UI

  1. #5061
    Hey guys! I have edited QulightUI for my own special needs, and would like some feedback and constructive ideas for developing the current setup!
    The edit is done mostly through notepad++, so it would be something familiar to a TukUI edit.

    First Screen:
    The first screenshot is showing the basic layout of the UI. Seen elements are; Player, Target, ToT + Raid.

    Second Screen:
    The second screen is showing the arena unitframes, which I have added an aura timer + trinket timer to. It also shows how the UI uses Aurora for frame customizing.

    BTW: You can see that the buff layouts are slightly different at the two pics. The second screen is the one with my current buff layout.

    Hope you like it! Please, enlighten me with some ideas to improve my UI! I'm also open to answering any questions you would have concerning my UI.

    I've been thinking about this but have NO prior experience with pixel fonts, and as such I have no idea what the different kinds are.

    Also looking through your ui's, you seem to use em quite a lot. Do you go all out pixel font ? Or just use pixel fonts for SLDT, raven etc

    And to everyone asking for UF's, I will be creating them in Stuf today. I have yet to find the proper positioning for UF's, grid, buff's, debuffs. I need to get this done, not allowing myself to play the new Final Fantasy till I'm done

    EDIT : Here's an old version of oUF_NIN, I've been thinking of doing something like this

    Maybe health lost will appear in class color ?

    @Lolhand

    If you follow the link in my sig and download the zip for my Ui, inside you will find in the addons folder IshtaraMedia.
    Copy/Paste that into your addon folder and browse through the 95-100 pixel fonts in it till you find one you like.
    Keep in mind that the size of most of the pixel fonts will need to be set at increments of 8. A couple are 10, but most are 8.
    The media folder also has normal fonts for your chat frame and bar textures for your unitframes/meters.

    All that aside, I still don't understand why your chat frame needs to be in the center of the screen.
    You can still cast with a logo over it when the frame is off to the side.

    Are you casting/frapsing/raiding as a Dps, Tank or Healer?

    For the chat, I might move it over to the right, should I float it over the bottom kgpanel bar or go for the same overlap like I did with the minimap ? I would go overlap just to make it seem like it fits in, but I'd have to make it non-transparent then

    EDIT: I'm having a hard time explaining, I'll have a SS in a second here

    http://i.imgur.com/0GwSt.jpg is what I'm talking about. Any ideas ?

    Edit, was there no one who had confirmed their role or isn't it shown?

    Make like a "carving" down in the bottom bar for where the chat box is, the overlapping looks kind of dull and wrecks the clean theme.

    can do line by line i guess, in kgpanels :P

    ---------- Post added 2012-02-03 at 12:24 AM ----------

    I think just make a new panel with no border, make the background color black, and depending on width or height, make it 9 px and u will get a 1px line like the one u have at ur bottom

    What a coincidence on that second shot *wink wink*

    On a more serious note, I spy about 3 different fonts. Not sure if that was on purpose

    Font 2: The ugly sanserif font you have on your unitframes, chatlog and combat text.

    Font 3: The less ugly but still not great font on your raidframes and combat log.

    So why exactly is it not ideal to use the same font for everything?

    Been thinking about changing, or at least testing a pixel font on certain elements of my UI, just wondering a few things.
    Can you change the size of a pixel font, and having it remain pixel perfect? If not, it kinda defeats the purpose of having one imo.
    Also, does anyone know which font this might be? Any similar will do. I'm just looking for a very basic font with a 1px black border surrounding it.

    btw, is there ANY way of changing the stack amount font on your action bar? been trying to find ways to do this for a long time, and needless to say, without success.

    Sure there is.
    I honestly think its ugly, therefor me saying its ugly is justified.
    Just because a font is "basic" and "readable" doesn't mean it can't be ugly.
    I didn't tell you to adopt my opinion so I'm not quite sure why you're getting you're panties in a bunch.
    My point was that you are in fact using 3 different fonts as was pointed out in a previous post.

    ps. You didn't answer my question
