    Unrelated note here is a new screenshot of mine in raid and combat. Has the HP colors changed from the brighter grey i used to have to dark and updated look on the castbars. (player cast bar border changes class color depending on what I'm playing, and target border changes on class color and red(npc enemy), green(npc friendly).)

    Really like it. The raid frames pop and would really stand out for a healer role. As always good work.

    PS. Who cares about the font, if you like it use it.

    PPs. Please keep posting screenshots. You are 1 of the many here who've given me some great ideas and, with out knowing, tips on a good clean ui.

    Thanks! It was built mainly for healing as that is my main spec, I've just been using LFR for gearing my offspecs so thats why most my screenies are as dps.

    With regards to ElvUI, anyone know how to remove hide all the buffs/debuffs except for boss specific crap like amber-shaper destabilize stacks

    I don't know the specifics for every little thing to check and uncheck but.
    (assuming you mean for the target frame)
    /ec -> unitframes -> target -> debuffs

    Then this is where i get confused about auras filtering and probably why i never have bothered with it. I "think" you cant to block everything but whitelist and at the very bottom select "RaidDebuffs" in the Additional Filters.

    You can see what auras the RaidDebuff whitelist will show via unitframes -> filters -> select filter "RaidDebuffs" -> Filter Type "Whitelist" -> select spell dropdown menu.

    I could be WAY off on all this. I think there is a pretty big thread on the TukUI/ElvUI forums how to config auras that might offer better more accurate help than this though since i could be 100% wrong.

    ***edit***
    BTW interesting approach with your new layout. The chat placement is interesting and i could see that working well if done right. Hope to see your finalized screenie soon!

    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.
    Seeing that I'm not the only one that thinks that the font does not fit the rest of the UI, you might want to lay off the hostile attitude and just play around with some different fonts? Because I'm not saying your UI is bad, just that it would look better with a different font.

    Everyone seems to bitch about my font. I think I'm just going to give up posting screenshots cause of this. The font looks just fine on my screen size and resolution. My screen is a 27" so what looks large for probably most people is pretty small on my screen.

    Either way, I'm done with screenshots.
    I use a 27" screen too and it's not about it being too large or small, it's the general look. Pixel fonts also have a specific size at which they look good, and you are not using that one so they have blurred edges and look really fuzzy/blurry. So maybe just take the advice and try something new. Nobody here hates you and wants you to stop posting. I could imagine that something like BigNoodleTitling or a lowercase version of myriad would look good on your ui.

    no, they're not. They look just fine to me.

    I'm well aware pixel fonts have to be a specific size(I spent days trying out 50+ fonts and this was the ONLY one that worked on my screen) and I am using the correct size for the font I've picked out. Because it is NOT fuzzy or blurry at all on my screen or in my screenshots. Are you even left clicking one time after loading the image so it zooms in to "actual size" and not the defaulted "fit to screen"? You're the only one who thinks it's blurry.

    Did you use custom icons in your party frame for the healer/tank/dps?

    It's Tidyplates; Threat plates!

    Way better than the original ElvUI one's

    Oh okay. I cant really seem to be able to customise the looks of Tidy Plates at all except by changing the built in Layouts. Only things I can change is what information they show and even that is very limited. Also there are no profiles with it which is a shame. I would prefer just to go back to Aloft but still be able to have the debuff icons over the top of the nameplates ability.

    Not sure what I'm doing wrong with Tidy Plates then :/

    Also here is my UI on my Death Knight that I am currently leveling up:

    Using ElvUI as base, its just the regular raid icon from the Elv raid frames.

    Really enjoyed using MayronUI Gen2, only issues I had were some lua errors. shoulda taken note of what they were tho so I could have let you know.
    I really need a bigger monitor tho, so i can get more screen real estate

    I was a bit out of it last night, completely forgot to check Tuk/Elv Forums....
    Could use some C&C on those screens to give me some more ideas, not sure what to do with it now...got a sort of writers block atm :P UIBLOCK!

    What about either remove one row of action bars on each side of the chat so you have 12 on top and 6 on each side? Or have 12 on top, 6 on each side and 12 on the bottom. Maybe move the whole chat/action bar mix down a bit so it aligns with your minimap, Party/raid frames.


    Also, is that nibEclipse? If so you should mess around with size to make that border nice and crisp instead of the blurry mess you have now.

    I agree with his idea to drop the actionbars and chat down to align with the raid frames and meters*map. Perhaps put your player castbar or target castbar or both in what would be that new void if you deside to move the bars and chat down.

    Will have a move around see what I come up with, with regards to the cast bars, do you mean like 2 lines say with target and player cast bars running along the top of chat/bar 1 like ========= <-- this kinda hard to describe.

    Its Balance Power Tracker, was messing around with it to try and get a nice clean border, didn't manage it, this is WIP atm, will chuck a different texture into the BPT folder to try and sharpen it up

    Edit: Do you mean like this for cast bars / moving chat/ab's down?

    Like if you moved you chat and action bars down to align the bottom of all that to match the raid frames and map there will be plenty space made(where the main actionbar is now) to place one or two castbars and match those to the width of the main actionbar if that makes sense.

    Kinda like in my UI my player cast is above my raid frames with the width matched and my target cast is above that matching the width of my player+portrait+target frames.

    This is all just suggestions as I think if the actionbar+chat is shifted down you'll have a huge hole between the new location and you unit frames, making it a nice spot to fill with castbars.

    But play around and experiment. Even when I get things looking how I like I almost always keep playing around just to see and maybe get some creative ideas and find something I never thought of.

    Made myself a new more functional UI, still the same layout tho.

    Target debuffs + my important buffs (Rapid fire in this case), castbar and bar 2 to the right which pops up when entering combat


    Enemy castbar + focus


    Raid with BW, boss frames etc


    Does anyone have any ideas on how to add a border to bigwigs timers? Want the same border on them that i use for the rest of the UI (fer09).
    To bad there ain't an option for it, heck, you can't even anchor/parent a KGpanel to them

    BigWigs already has 2 styles by default(Tuk and Beautycase i think), you can make your own style.. check the code for the styles how they add the borders

    Took me a whooping 3 minutes to do that.

    Open up ingame options, Eclipse Bar, Bar Options, check Show Border, select a bar texture (any will work, even the blizzard ones), change border size to make a nice looking border (I used Blizzard Dialog at the size 2). Then go to Color and change the border color to black.

    Now then, the problem is that the border is outside the bar itself. For this you'll have to go into the SavedVariables lua and change insets to 1. Don't forget to exit the game first!
    Code:
    	["eclipse_bar"] = {
    		["showInAllStances"] = false,
    		["ly"] = 0,
    		["insets"] = {
    			["top"] = 1,
    			["right"] = 1,
    			["left"] = 1,
    			["bottom"] = 1,
    Kablamo, you've got yourself a nice 1px border!

    One more thing I noticed. Height and Width has to be even numbers otherwise the border won't show at all after doing this. So Width at 200 works, 201 doesn't.
