    Idle Raid Shot.


    Combat Raid Shot


    Looking at these pics I can see things that need to be changed, xCT moved over to the right, boss frames growing down from under the minimap instead of up

    People asked to see my UI while in action so here is a quick SS.



    After many hours and the help of the people on the TukUI/ElvUI forums i got the mini map properly done as a rectangle (previously i had changed it via just editing the width but it made all markers on the map to not be in their right place) No I can not move the map up more(i know someone will make a comment about it), due to how it actually has to remain "square" it can't be moved up any further, it's just a "mask" that makes it look rectangle.

    I'm pondering the idea of a different font, something non "pixel". I don't really have trouble reading it on my screen i just know non pixel ones are easier for quick glances, i just can't find anything thats nice and clean.

    Also keep in mind that my UI is more based around healing(which is why the raid frames are where they are), even though in the screenshot I'm dpsing.

    You might try setting the mask to hide part of the bottom of the minimap, instead of the top? It'll let you move it up higher, and you can still place your texts and graphics over the masked-off portion of the bottom of the map, perhaps?

    Looks better in raids that idle, can see stuff in action which is nice, I really like the look off it, especially the rectangleness of everything.
    C&C my screens please!

    Things i noticed in your screens are the font size on your meter, unit frames(all of them, target, player, raid), castbars, small DBM or BigWig timers, times on your buffs are all too small and messes with how the letters even look. Example is all 2's and s's look like 9's, all lower case e's and a's and some others are messed up cause of this as well.

    A lot of borders seem to be chopped off on some sides. Moving things around pixel by pixel can fix most of that (same goes for those few black lines that show up as 2px) I think this is either due to UI scale or you are using a multisample that is higher than x1.

    Other than that not bad. Not a huge fan of the HP colors that change based on hp% but it's not my UI

    *edit*
    Noticed font is a little wonky in the chat frame also.

    I'll try that but i don't think it works that way. It'll be less of a pain/editing to just adjust the chat frame and Skada upwards to match that spacing on the top for the bottom

    Anyone know how to change raid frames on FreeUI healer layout from vertical to horizontal?

    As you can see the target/threat border is working with the size that I set for the party frames. I then have an if statement to increase the health size on raid bars but it's also affecting the party frames.
    Does anybody have an idea of where I'm going wrong? ):

    I really enjoy some aspects of your UI.

    Could you give me a clue what buff addon, map addon, and chat addon you use? I've been looking into dropping ElvUI considering it's very clunky and causes me to get a lot of errors, and your map, chat, and buffs I really like.

    My buff addon is part of oUF. The base layout I use is oUF_Qulight but I've edited it for myself. The map addon is qMinimap and the chat addon is PhanxChat, all of which are available over at wowinterface.com

    Not that I care but what errors are you getting with ElvUI? You seriously must have done something wrong like download a REALLY outdated version from who knows where, use a ton of addons that conflict or tried to edit the lua and broke it. ElvUI is probably the most updated addon out there and I would bet its 100% user issue if you get a ton of errors if any from it.

    Nice, thanks very much you two!

    bOOURNS! I followed your post on the ElvUI Forums for the rectangle minimap, do oyu have a summarization of what needs to be changed? I would love to have it too, little lua knowledge is there, but why try to do it over again if you have it finished!

    Thanks

    You got any links to somewhere I can see some different pixel fonts, as mine pointed out by bOOURNS looks for lack of a better phrase, Shitty.

    dafont.com - section pixel/bitmap. There are a lot of them there with the size you should use

    Cheers Coldkil.
    Now to find one.....

    Assuming i can just replace the "Elvui pixel" with the one I download from Dafont, put it in the fonts folder and rename it to the same as the elv pixel one?

    Checked ElvUI forums, there's a thread on adding/replacing fonts

    Hey, yes you should be able to replace it, but you can also add it as another font in 2 simple steps:

    1. Copy new font, for example new_font.ttf to "World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\ElvUI\media\fonts"
    2. Add a new line in "World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\ElvUI\media\sharedmedia.lua"

    LSM:Register("font","New Font", [[Interface\AddOns\ElvUI\media\fonts\new_font.ttf]])

    Cheers

    Ty Kroni, just got that from Elv forums too, just need to find one I like that is readable in-game

    Ugh, this is a pain, I cannot get one that looks nice and is readable

    Would UI Scale have a big impact on the fonts, using UI Scale and the slider is at its minimum

    Moved UI scale up 1 step, chat is fine, but my frames fonts are all skewed

    Any suggestions to make this cleaned up a bit more? I feel like it's too cluttered because I can't keep a good eye on boss timers full time.
