    4 pages back and no one seemed to have noticed this. Outrageous!
    1. That is pretty much unavoidable it seems. I will get a random row with a side (either the black border or the mana bar like you see) will be 1px extra and does that. Moving the raid frames around just places the anomaly else where in the frames.

    2. If you can tell me how to hardcode an offset for progress bar name and timer text in Weakauras I'd love to hear it. Other wise that can't be changed without making the bar itself a lot bigger.

    3. Text on my player, target and tot can be fixed. Everything else cannot without being hardcoded to have offsets.

    4. No it's not. You're just blind. There is no way cause there is one setting for time placement on the buff icons. If you really think so then take it up with the author of Raven and tell him that wou think the 2nd row somehow uses different settings.)

    Overall you're just nitpicking pretty stupid shit IMO.

    (I'm not trying to be rude about it and am not closed to any suggestion. I'm simply just backing up why I chose to live with the few very minor things that can't be fixed at all or need to be edited through code but haven't found a way yet. )

    not bad as organization, but way to many textures and fonts through the entire ui - choosing one will make the ui much more consistent.

    Pretty much what Coldkil said, the base organization of the UI is looking good, you just need to sort some things out to complete it. I can't help but notice though that the names on the frames are too big and the values are too small in comparison and you'd think that the values are more important to look at than the name.

    You also need to sort out the debuffs and buffs on the target frame!

    I personally like the spells. Most people hate having big spell icons but if you only have a few showing then I don't see what's wrong. The unit frames look amazing however I do not like the little debuff icons in the bottom left corner on the target frame as they over lap the name text. One thing I strongly recommend changing however is the recount/skada meter (which ever it is). The bars are too big unless you have a small screen in which case the size is up to you but you should remove the grey background as it takes up a lot of space for no reason and just looks like an ugly waste of space on your UI. Such an eye saw. Other then that its a very nice UI indeed

    It looks nice, but I have a few things, that would drive me insane, if it was my UI

    Your Halopro doesnt match anything else in your UI. If you want to use Halopro, then edit the pics to get a nice square icon (its also not alligned with anything)

    The shield around the castbar icon... I can see why you might want one on target castbar (....personaly i would change castbar color instead, if you need to know if it can be interupted or not)
    Also it seems like your unitframe castbar is working too. Kinda odd with 2 castbars for the same thing, isnt it? :P

    Names on unit frames look way to big, and they are not abreviated. It also seems like the text box on target frame is ALOT smaller then the actual target frame. I would also mirror player and target frame.
    And do you realy need debuffs on your target frame, when you have the big icons to show them to? Makes it look clunky and a bit crowded.

    On your recount you have a different bar type then the rest. Everywhere you have a flat texture, but that one is kinda curvey.

    Addon icons on your minimap... Do i need to say more? XD

    And as mentioned, you have like a million different fonts and text sizes going on there



    But ya, im picky XD


    Oh, and the huge recount kinda makes it look like you are making a statement "Yes, i dont use my right side of my screen RAWR"


    ...Yes, im sleepy <.<

    Trying out a new look to my castbars to match my unit and raid frames. Border of them added through kgpanels. (target border changes based on class and NPC reaction, player border is class) Also trying out darker HP colors, makes the class colored power bar faux borders stand out more.

    ***Note***
    I am quite aware that the target castbar IS 1px too long on the right side. This seems to unavoidable. 1px shorter just makes the black border (on the actual castbar not the kgpanels) 2px. So my options were 1px too short, aligned but 2px "inner black border or 1px too long. So i don't want to hear it

    You can see an example of the 2px border on the 2nd debuff that is on the target dummy(target of target)

    Not sure how to combat this at all. Some placements seem to do the 2px instead of 1px border OR as stated by Sakpoth the power bar on my 4th row of my raid frames was 1px bigger than all the rest in my previous screenshot.

    All I've done is change colours and the font. It wouldn't be needed.

    And everything that isn't to my personal liking in your UI makes me want to stab 100 people with a rusty bent spoon. Get lost.

    Not only was your post not even relevant to what I was posting about, the font type I use is also 100% irrelevant. Considering I'm the one who plays with it and personally I have no trouble reading the font on my screen.

    It's like saying the color yellow makes me angry therefore cause your UI has yellow in it I hate it so much I want to choke someone. I'm sorry but you're a bloody retard.

    This must be what Blizzard feels like. People complaining just for the sake of complaining.

    Actually this is avoidable, but requires some work.

    First do this:
    Code:
    local offset = framename:GetEffectiveScale()/UIParent:GetEffectiveScale()
    offset will be the true dimension of a pixel. With this you can multiply the height/width by offset and obtain always pixel-perfect borders and dimensions. Anyway this would require that every frame in the ui is treated this way to see the effect.

    I use it only for certain aspects like nameplate borders and text offset on unitframes, since they move a lot through the ui and if i don't use this sometimes things will go wild with 2px borders and such.

    EDIT: MAH FACE when i discovered that indicators on QuseUI are all oUF tags WHY I DIDN'T THOUGHT OF THAT BEFORE.

    I essentially stopped playing some months ago; but found myself log in last night (account is still active), make a level 1 Paladin, and then build a UI for him.

    Three hours in, it looks something like this:


    Things are yet to be added and aligned, and the colour of the health bars may need to be adjusted. But I might not even finish it.

    Guess I needed to be creative.

    Do you really need to have your debuffs on the target shown 5 times on your screen?

    And why do you have two VT and SW:P icons over your cast bar? Is one for focus target? If so, that's 6 times!



    You better not let those dots fall off...

    Looks to me like he's using ElvUI as a base with I think Stuf for his player/target frames. So I think those are ElvUI raid frames.

    (Only reason I can tell his player/target frames are Stuf unit frames is because the weird borders on the debuffs to the right of the target frame. All the rest looks like ElvUI for sure though.)

    You're right and I've already changed that (I've removed the ones on the focus frame left of my health frame). I intend to leave the rest as is since the one above my castbar are including target & focus and to the right I'll have all the boss debuffs (boss frames).

    I intend to exclude my own debuffs from the target debufs stuf gives.

    --

    As bOOURNS said already: I'm using stuf for my unitframes, elvui for the rest.

    @bOOURNS Any idea how to change those ridiculous borders? I've tried to find the option but it seems like it's not changable.
