As well as decrease your buff text size.
    2.Font choice. If you dont want to go the pixel route, i personally love the font Accidental Presidency. GREAT sans serif font, I literally use it ALL the time as a Graphic Designer.
    3. Hide those minimap buttons. Please.
    4.I dunno about you but seeing what abilities do what damage in MSBT is kinda of pointless, just config it to show the numbers. I can show you how, or you can just play around in MSBT. Also if you have Coolline active, turn off the static and notification on MSBT, kinda of annoying pointless info if ya ask me, in a a unappealing way as well.
    5.Move your boss frames, its making your UI slant heavy towards the right.
    6.To help the slant even more, try to off set your Frames, such as put your target frame up higher and keep your frame lower. Stagger ya know?
    7.You need to move your raid frames. I would suggest top left, maybe list them down single file? it will give your UI a better balance because its quite empty up there, and there is a lot of unused space.

    your pet bar should be smaller, it doesnt need to be that large.
    Gonna try out some, not all, of the things you suggested.

    I like the text, but feels kind of hard to read at times compared to Arial Narrow. I can't for the life of me figure out how to change the font in the box you type your messages in. Well, I change the typed out text, but the "Say:" part will not change.



    In MSBT, I have static off, but I leave notification on. I turned off the Lock'n'load blizzard power aura thing.

    1. How do I change the fonts of everything? Part of the reason I used Arial Narrow, it matched, or seemed to match, all of the blizzard text. (Escape menu, Interface menu, all that) I can't find a chat font setting in Tidyplates.

    2. Is there a way to make the minimap buttons on Chinchilla mouseover? I like to check my time in queues and my tracking bubble is up there. What is the command, given I didn't somehow change it, for the calendar?

    3. What is Coolline?

    New and possibly improved UI

    Might put my Needtoknow GCD's below my pet bar and make skada show only the top 3.

    1. Fonter. Allows you to change the fonts pretty much everywhere
    2. Yes there is! There is a tab named something like... "Show/hide" I think. On there you can tick things with grey and yellow ticks. Grey ticks make things only appear on mouseover, and yellow ticks make things appear all the time. No ticks = no icon at all, ever.
    3. Coolline is a CD tracking AddOn

    And here's a pretty arrow critique for you!

    I know a fair bit. This is what my UI looked like when I used it

    I made a guide on my Guild forum about it AGES ago (I don't use it anymore) as some guildies were unsure of how to use it also. Hehe
    Will try find it now, see if it's still there!

    EDIT: Found it. It's very short, and not so great, but it gives a general idea of how to get the panels working etc.
    Step 1. Choose a name for your layout and then click Create.
    http://i.imgur.com/dia25.jpg
    Your layout will then appear in the sidebar

    Step 2. Click on Active Panels, and then make a name for your panel.
    http://i.imgur.com/M9Sq4.jpg
    After doing so, your panel will appear in the middle of your screen, and the name will appear in the sidebar
    http://i.imgur.com/nluZB.jpg

    Step 3. You can then use the options for the panel, and Texture Options to configure it to whatever size, shape, and skin you want it to have.

    Actually not sure if the first step is necessary, but I have not played around with the AddOn for a while so I can't say for certain.
    Hope this helped!

    anyone know where i can get the list of all addons that ELVUI uses.... ive had a fukk full of elvui and reloading ui every 5 mins so im goin back to blizz ui but would like to know what some of the features are in lev so i can get them seperately. tx

  6. #6346
    There is no list, it's an all-in-one package.

  7. #6347
    After holding true to my own UI for years, I finally gave ElvUI a try last week. Been configuring it to resemble what I'm used to play with, and I think it's been successful. Looking forward to not having 10-20 addons to update each patch!

    - Before -


    - After -


    - Addons -
    ElvUI
    Fortexorcist
    Power Auras Classic
    Skada

    Is it really necessary with such big cast bar?

  9. #6349
    As a ranged class, I find the cast bar to be one of the most important parts of my UI. Having it both large and centered allows me to focus on the fight or other parts of the UI while still knowing exactly when a cast is about to finish. Essential knowledge if you want to min/max movement, at least in my opinion.

    Different font for unitframes/datatext.
    Smaller castbar.
    Hide the raid reminder thingy next to minimap.

    I don't understand that argument but if you've tried smaller and like bigger more then I supposed its fine.

    big bright cast bars are precious in arena

    Without all those wild colors, it feels a bit bland, but it looks better, kinda. Getting used to a lack of color. I couldn't find an option for power bars to be class colored. Only got options for mana, focus, energy, rage, runic power, ect.

    Got my minimap buttons on mouseover.

    After realizing I never even use my pet bar, I put on "always hide."

    For some reason, Masque would not let me change the borders on my Raven buffs to white. I had to change from Caith to Dream or something. The borders changed colors on my action bars though. Probably because I haven't updated any addons in a long time xD. Also, my highlight doesn't seem to work, so my glow is gone. Makes my borders look thicker, on the buffs at least.

    Having all the unit frames and the cast bar the same color felt very, very plain. I went with a lighter grey on the cast bar.

    To whomever said something about getting spammed with heals, I set a threshold of 3000 minimum. That alone got rid of a lot of spam. I'll probably end up making all overheals no-show.

    Edit: Noticed my debuffs are too close to my buffs, fixed that.

    On MSBT, got irritated without know which of my abilities are doing what damages so I made it do abbreviated, ISS, ES, AS ect.

    You did everything that I said and in my opinion it looks a lot better!
    I see what you mean by the unit frames looking bland, but I think it looks better than having the multicoloured. Maybe you could try colouring them a different colour to see if anything else looks good too.
    And yeah the borders on the buffs are a bit thick. Might be worth finding a nice new masque theme
    Overall, I like it a lot better now

    DeeUi in present (not big changes) - need feedback pls!! wana improve/redo it in some way but i lack ideas/inspiration





    I have to recon Omni CC fonts dont have Outline Monochrome since my tries on Lua editing it didnt work ; same goes for their size it should be 10 but somehow but omni CC 10 size is much lower then rest of addons so i put 17 hope it dosent look so bad.

  17. #6357
    My addons are retarded. I set all the settings to pure black, gloss, backdrop, all that. For less than a second, I get:



    But once that interval is over, it turns into:



    I tried Masque:Caith, Sleek, Renaitre.. Any clue how to fix this?

    (I'm surprised I got the screenshot on the first try)

    Very minor details, but it's making it painful to look at.

    Your Minimap isn't aligned with its blue handle. Same goes for your DBM.

    And the box just below the Minimap is one pixel too wide. As is the box below your lowest Action bar. (Also, the SLDT text in it fills it out uncomfortably much).

    They in turn are less wide than your Player frame. If you can't line up the Action bar any better; you can always reduce the Player frame.

    Then there's Grid, which can be a pain to line up with anything. It's not the end of the world if it's shorter, but you should at least center it rather than lining it up along your Player frame's left side.

    The Action bars along the sides should also be aligned with their respective handles in the same manner your buffs/everything else is. (The ends are too long).

    I'd also reduce the size of the objective counter at the top slightly. It looks bloated, and the font is blurry likely caused by it being in the wrong size.

    Ye i did realize thoose errors now and tried to adjust only prob is that stuf unitframes has some weird bug that at certain positions the one pixel border gets much thicker. Same goes for the kgpanel under map i dosent recognize decimals so the map size is x.5 and panel is x.0 but il sort that out somehow. Ty for Feedback!!!

    Layout and positioning tipps also apreciated

    It's not with Stuf, but with how the game renders the UI.

    Setting your Multisampling to 1x in your Options should fix this.

    It doesn't recognize decimals when the scale is 1, because you cannot have half pixels. 1 point is 1 pixel.

    Instead, adjust the size of your Minimap so that it's even.
