    I would if i still had it

    Anyway, after much tinkering, i think i'll stay with the classic layout. The new concept was only going in a bad way, making things more complicated (not for me to code, for the end-user) without any reason.

    My current UI - It's a merged version of Mayron UI Gen 2, ElvUI, a few custom edits, and some addon changes/additions:

    Normal walking around:



    Most UI elements unlocked - never will all of these be shown at the same time:

    You come off very.. Self righteous.
    If UIs were a religion you'd be the head preacher whose opinion is always correct.
    Hilarious post. Guy asks for suggestions, Ish actually gives him suggestions with arguments design and functionality wise. If you don't want to see good advice because you THINK most of it is personal preference, then don't post in this thread really.

    Right now it's a cheaty half-ass bar behind it. Just played with the opacity until it looked good.
    Working on a way to combine them into eachother though.

    Done for now, the only thing i really don't like is the border on the bigwigs timers (pic 2), i have no clue how to make them pixel perfect with a black/grey/black border, same goes for the buffs on my target.
    There's also a small pixel error on the right side of the raid, been moving it around, resizing it and played with the spacing but i just cant get it right unless i move the whole raid to another position which i don't want to

    Raid with bar 2 to the right that pops up in combat


    Focus, castbars and bigwigs timers


    Config mode to show the bossframes that are located under the minimap

    @ Rusk,

    Other than some font size issues and font outline inconsistencies, it looks great! A bit too monochromatic for my personal taste, but overall well done

    TBH it's a lot i'm thinking about an "only text" UI, but actionbars are really good - immediate information with a glimpse of an eye.
    I agree.

    I think you could do something like "action bars made of text". For example consider powerline (a plugin for the vim text editor). Imagine if we made a font that had icons for major spells. Maybe one "box" glyph in the background, then one "skull" glyph on top of that, and finally a small pixel-font marker in under that with a 5-7 letter "name" -- something arranged to look sort of like a period table of elements…

    Someting as simple as setting foreground and background color (I realize wow doesn't do background color on text) lets you create interesting displays


    With a little effort I think you could make a really light-weight UI that looked good. Then again, wow's got a really crumby text renderer so it might be hard to get enough detail out of text to make it look good.

    Ugh, Max Reso I can get upto is 1440x900
    Don't have the disposable income to get a bigger monitor right now /sadface
    Would you mind uploading anyway, I could play around with it to see if I can make it fit

    You would have to redo the size of every KGPanel and everything else to get it to fit and there is around 55 kgpanels hehe;p

    There is an oUF layout that does exaclty that tbh, i looked at it bu as far as i remeber it's made through other means than lua code, so it's something that i'm not that good. Would like to try anyway.

    If you parent the panels to actual frames you won't need to adjust anything.

    Also, a correct anchors usage makes the ui usable on nearly any resolution - the issue is mostly to make it fit to smalle screens. That's why i made my frames draggabe^^ i play on my pc at 1680x1050 but also on my laptop at 1280x800.

    But won't there be pixel errors on them when changing resulotion? I had to move every kgpanel to a certain position to make it pixel perfect, then move it to the frame and set the size i had at the pixel perfect position.

    Working on a new layout on the PTR. I still don't really like it but I've got nothing else that even remotely looks better.



    Thoughts? Anything I could do better? And I'm trying to figure out where to place omen as I'm a tank so kinda need that. Thought about off beside the minimap, but that would be too far away from my field of vision I think =/.
