    I'm in a dilemma with this.
    I want a pixel based theme because i think they look great and work as they intend to do but most of all the screen on the machine is 13". On the other hand i cannot use a pixel UI because of the resolution, if i lower the resolution the focus is fucked up..

    Could you paste you're font somewhere for me please?

    Smaller screen = lower resolution = easier to read pixel-fonts.

    Try making the Raid Frame a little wider, might feel like it fits in more then.

    I don't think I can give a lot of good feedback because it just seems cluttered to me where you might think it's space efficient and compact.
    In your combat screenshot there seems to be a lot of overlapping in the middle of the screen. I also think the buffbars are space-inefficient there. Have you tried replacing them with buff icons?

    The only other thing I noticed are the bars on your dps meter and the (boss?)-timers to the left of your screen. You probably prefer it that way, but I personally would have a border on these bars and maybe add a thin outline to the font.

    I did have them wider in my video but I was using other colors there. The thing I am most unhappy about is the coloring. Class colors are too bright, but if I invert it, it's too dark. I'd add borders to the BigWigs and Skada if I knew how to do it in an easy way.

    Ariadne are you considering uploading that UI anywhere by any chance ?

    Having some fun trying out a new UF layout

    In the UI Guide link under his sig he's attached a download link at the bottom. I's not a generalized package though.

    This kind of colouring issues is one of the reasons I made the change to using transparent unit frames. With transparent frames the bright colours are only present on people with lower health and needs your attention, as can be seen on one of my latest screenshots.


    (I'm painfully aware of some of my action buttons are touching each other, one of the unfortunate problems with using Bartender as it scales the buttons instead of putting them at a fixed size.)

    As for BigWigs borders, you can use QuseBossStyles. I made a post earlier about Skada borders, however this requires lua editing which means the changes has to be applied with every update:

    						bgFile = [=[Interface\ChatFrame\ChatFrameBackground]=],
    						insets = {left = 1, right = 1, top = 1, bottom = 1}})
    					frame:SetFrameLevel(bar:GetFrameLevel())
    					frame:SetBackdropColor(0, 0, 0, .3)
    					frame:SetBackdropBorderColor(0, 0, 0)
    					bar.bg = frame
    				end
    --- end ---

    Sorry, no. It's not finished and on Elegon it somehow gives me FPS drops. Don't know why. Not getting errors.

    It's outdated guide=S.

    @Sakpoth Thank you very much for the tips and help!

  13. #8493
    It could be your DPS Meeter @ the Elegon issue, I remember during progress some people said they stopped getting it after they disabled their recount however disabling skada did nothing for me. I get that FPS drop at the last phase running close to no addons anyways but I play on a 6 year old laptop so I figured it would be that :/.

    Any chance you could maybe upload your grid (or whichever raid frame addon you use) settings if you don't want to upload your whole UI yet? They look exactly like how I'd like mine to be from the look of it on your Sha vid but I'm waaaaay too lazy to ever bother setting up AddOns my self .

    This is sexy.

    I'll have access to a 1080p screen a bit so I may finally make a UI that isn't contained in a square box.

  16. #8496
    Been playing around a bit with my UI today and came up with this



    Bartender for frames, Debuff filter to track buffs, Masque (darion clean) for button look, coolddown count for cooldown timer and Qbrick holy power to track
    holy powers.

    Alot of abilities are in hidden bars along with their keykind to obtain a more clean look.

    Even in the video, I think the raid frames are too high in size. Waaaay too high. Length is good. And try changing the health bar - layout to horizontal (side to side). You don't need high frames if you're using the healthbars in that layout.

    @Carsten

    Looks good. Definitely get some chat addon and configre Skada to have them fit into your UI. Right now both of those windows completely seem to ruin it for me..

    What are you using to display the info in the bottom left and right corners? Gold, time, etc.

    My current one, kind of simplistic but I like it. Omen goes next to Skada and is the same size as the Skada window, I've also measured and made sure that the chat window takes up as much space on the other side as Skada+Omen does to give it more even flow. Raid shot to come.

    Am I doing it right? Can't post links
