Thread: Post Your UI

  1. #5941
    Since I'm back home from the army for a couple of days I figured I'd use some spare time to tinker with a new UI. I decided to try out an aurora themed UI, starting to get places but still a WIP ^^

    Here is how it looks so far.

    Beside some alignment issues : UF/Hotbars, Minimap/XP bar, hotbar next to minimap, target buffs, etc... basically, there's a lot of misalignment that look to be ~1-2 px off - but it really looks sharp!

    I don't care for the pixel font (and I like pixel fonts): it might be your screenshot or the size of the picture, but that font on your UF is barely legible (almost looks like the wrong size?).

    Also, is that STUF or an oUF layout?

    Thanks for the feedback, I'll work on the alignment issues, I see some of them myself now. But in-game there it doesn't look to be that many alignment issues, may just be the screenshot making it look that way. I belive the pixel font is Hooge0656 at size 8, so the size should be correct, again it may be the screenshot. Did you zoom in once after the screenshot was loaded, because it seems it goes into the right size then.

    The UF is STUF

    I don't remember what font I used. Maybe someone else can? The action bar is Bartender and Masque + ButtonFacade_Daron to skin it.

    Pretty sure the chat/game font is Expressway Free.

    Not sure about unit frames, some form of Semplice.

    So I had surgery this week. Instead of resting or updating VxtUI, I decided to mess around with a pretty simple UI layout. Took alot of influence from some of Care's UI's from his imgur gallery and used some of Quse's addons. It might be the super strong pain meds I'm on, but I like it.

    Remake of Touchymcfeel's UI, fit after my liking, so in other words I took his layout and shit all over it. It is somewhat of a WIP and I will see if I can get a combat shot later w/o all config windows open.

    Why all of those buff/debuffs?

    Like I said, it's a WIP. And I like having the auras above the unitframes, also realistically no one would probably ever have that ammount of debuffs either way, they're just set up that way atm.

    Also been playing around with WeakAuaras to make Holy Power tracker etc, since I had forgotten about those.

    Although I would swap out your map for something simpler. Like the simple square you get in Sexymap.

    And, I would use some addon to track your buffs. So that you can cut down on the ammount of buffs you actually see. You don't need to see every single buff you recieve, so that's just clutter.

    Aaaand! I would get rid of the bars in the middle. But that's only if you're very comfortable with your hotkeys. I have no hotkeys at all visible, only some small things like food etc faded away to the right.
    I installed SexyMap, now it's alot better, later I'll download an addon to take care of buffs.

I personally prefer Aura Frames because they're a little more convenient AND can be recolored and skinned to fit the UI. The Power Auras is keeping track of pretty much everything an ele shaman needs to know so be sure to keep that around.

    Probably the only problem I may have with that UI is where the raid frames are positioned, as a DPS i prefer to have them kind of out of the way.

    Good looking UI nonetheless, so long as you can play with it and you feel comfortable.
    I have the raid frames in that position because my main was a Restoration Druid, now that I won't be using that char as much as I did before I'll find another position.

    That is exactly what I hoped people would do when I posted the details:

    I have opinions on what makes a good UI but I'm not going to argue them with anybody that doesn't already agree with me. I'm always flattered when people look at my UI and take inspiration or say "that's not bad, but I can do better". The more people who run with concepts I think are valuable: the more people I'll be able to steal from when I make changes to my UI in the future.

    Good work so far.
    A new UI series for 5.2Steal my old UILearn about WeakAuras • Nobody to raid with right now so no PVE videos.
