Thread: Post Your UI

  1. #7801
    After many hours of /reloading in font's into sharedmedia i finally found one i can use pretty much across the board. I also added in bars on my cd's on the bottom. (which is 100% done in WeakAuras)

    Raid25 DPS (zoom in all the way to see it in it's full res)


    Now if i can figure out how to add 1px borders to MSBT icons and also get rid of the stupid black shadow on Skada bars (why do they have that when the title bar for Skada doesn't?! /sigh)

    Looks awesome, but the energy text ever so slightly touching the bar gets to me. I would move the energy text down just a px.

    Skadafont is something i just made up, look for where the fonts are added in bardisplay.lua.. don't have access to check myself atm.

    skadafont:SetShadowColor(0, 0, 0, 0)

    Ok fixed. I kinda preferred it touching cause 1px down created a thick black line between the text and bar, so i just moved down 2px.

    Status bar texture is fade1, from Ishtara's media folder.
    thanks for the info !
    I've set up the Frostbomb cd tracker wich is pretty straightforward but I'm struggling with the FoF stack tracker.
    how did you set that up?

    I can't stand that font, readability is horrible. Especially on the unit frames where every font string looks different in height etc :/

    Not sure what you mean by the horrible readability. The font is thin and crisp. My monitor is 27" so it's very easy to read.(Perhaps you did not view the image at its full res). I have since changed the font on the numbers in the unit frame to the same thats used everywhere else (in that SS the numbers are a diff font). Either way, sorry that your preference doesn't match what's in my UI.

    He has slight truth in his words. But I only have trouble with unit health and the damage done on your damage meter. The unit health, I just can't really tell where the decimal is, so it's like.. 7509m health.. I see there's a gap but at a quick glance I would not be able to tell unless I've been using the font for a while. And the damage meter, I have mine condensed so I'm just not used to seeing lots of digits. Probably just me on both and I blindly agree'd. Everything aside from those 2 are crisp and clear. (Trying not to imagine the zeroes with the cross hanging out next to an eight, that would be absolute hell for me)

    On a big reso that font is fine, personally everything is a little too big, scale wise. i like smaller ui's.
    However, i do quite like what you've done with this.

    I agree with you and the decimal point on the health. That's why I've since changed the "numbers" font on my unit franes after that SS was made and the decimal is much easier to see now. As for for the non condensed in Skada, that's just how I've always had meter format since a few months before Wrath launch. Maybe it's time to condense the format now that damage done is ridiculous now.

    Actually you're not converting jpg > png, when you press Print Screen it copies the image on the screen to the clipboard, so what you are pasting into Paint is the raw image file.

    Wanting to revamp my UI but I'm not getting very far with it. Want to try and create something in the same vein as what I'm using in terms of layout/functionality but I really want to make it more nice to look at. It's just very boring right now . Hopefully I can get some work done with it over the next few days and I can get some pictures up.

    I like the crisp border but I hate playing with 1x multisampling; so I have a dilemma! I'll probably have to switch to 1x multisampling just for screenshots in the future ^^

    If you're using CleanIcons Thin, it should skin the MSBT icons as they'll be pulled from the default ones.

I am looking to create a UI that works alround for me, be it tanking/healing/dpsing/raids/pvp, but I want it to be somewhat clean yet still informative. Any feedback is appriciated.
    I just use the default blizzard buffs, but as far as map addons go, I use Chinchilla and am quite a fan.

    UI was looking like this. Then I decided I wanted to change it toooo.....

    This.

    Although I can't quite decide which one I'll keep ultimately in the end. The placement of things are very different. Other things that aren't seen on the screen. Like cast bars/focus target frame positions/multiple boss frame positions/etc.

    I'll probably just switch from time to time. Who knows. I'm very indecisive.

    Mostly done but few tweaks to make with regards to the font/positioning and some addon re-skinning.

    Buffs below your player frame are a little out, other than that, looks nice and sharp now, that font does suit the ui better than a pixel font

    NO! I so mad that everyone thinks that the regular shadowy outline with a non-pixel font looks better! I WILL IMPOSE MY OPINION ON EVERYONE AND YOU WILL ALL ACCEPT IT!

    But in all seriousness, a pixel font with monochrome outline looks so much more "solid" with the 1-pixel borders than regular non-pixel font with 1-pixel borders. It just looks silly.
    Of course I'm joking with the first part of this message, but in my opinion the font you're using now just doesn't "fit in". Sorry guize.

    Bring on the angry replies!

    Wrong. But it's okay, it's your opinion.
    I'm a mess of unfinished thoughts

    Not sure if trolling or doesn't understand that opinions are subjective and cannot be wrong D:
    Either way; an argument for why I am wrong would be helpful.
