    It's DBM, judging by the tracker of Petrification to the right, which BW does not have.

    If you are using stuf select "use custom lua" and paste this in there ->

    Code:
    function(unit)
        local name = UnitName(unit) or unit
        name = name:gsub('(%S+) ',function(t) return t:sub(1,1)..'.' end)
        return name
    end

        return name
    end
    Using ElvUI as a base, there is a "Custom texts" box for the unitframe config, will past that code in and see what happens. TY

        return name
    end
    And if you use PitBull:
    Code:
    local abbr = Name(unit)
    if abbr:len() > 20 and abbr:find(" ") then
      abbr = abbr:gsub("([^ ]+) +",
        function(text)
            return text:sub(1,1) .. ". "
        end)
    end
    return "%s", abbr;

    What about oUF? (;

    I did have something similar in an oUF layout a while back but never took it from that layout into my new one. It was very handy though I do admit!

I seem to be struggling lately on my own hunter with the pet bar in particular - I can't seem to place it where it is as easy to track as my own health. This might be a solution and I wouldn't mind trying to emulate it.

    Would you mind listing all your 'central' addons (unitframes, JSHB?, WeakAuras?). If they _are_ weakauras, exports would be even better, but that's more out a laziness on my part.


    EDIT: To partially answer my own question, it appears this uses a slightly modified oUF_Mlight (power bar hidden on player/pet), JSHB, and probably Quartz for the castbar. I was able to emulate a small chunk of this pretty rapidly. oUF_Mlight is great - it has working fade support out of the box, which many oUF layouts lack. I'm very very happy so far.
    Thanks, thanks. Here's that list.

    Unit frames + cast bars: oUF Skaarj
    Boss Timers: DBM + !dbm
    All the icons with buffs/debuffs in the central area + focus bar: JSHB

    I love the simplicity of JSHB but the icon borders mess up on even (2,4,6..) numbers of icons when growing from a center point. And the unit frame text colors are kinda.. and the background color.. I can't really find anything that works.

    Is there a way to skin the "/range X" radar?

    I'd hide the bag bar, the menu bar, and make the other bar with your mount etc only visible when you mouse over it.

    2. If you want to have a semi transparent background on your chatframe, I would also suggest adding a black border to it. That way it will go more in line with the rest of your UI and look nicer.
    3. Hide that minimap button unless really needed.
    4. That thing in the middle, is that your focus bar? If so, I'd suggest keeping the '63' and hiding the 63%, because, do you really need to know the percent of a resource that caps at 100 already?
    5. Consider merging healing and damage taken, and moving them to where damage taken is now and try to align them to the left part of your unit frame. Also, align the damage done part more to the right of your unitframe. That way, things that happen to you are above YOUR unitframe, and things that you do to the enemy are above their unitframe.
    6. Is that thing under your unitframe your focus? Do you need it showing twice? Maybe add a condition, or something, for it to appear only when out of combat under your unitframe, and when you enter combat it disappears, and vice versa on the centered focus frame.
    7. Consider making your buff frames smaller. You don't really need that much space for them. Leave the debuff us is, it's nice and you need to have a strong indication when you have a debuff on you.
    8. I would remove the centered MSBT norification text (Rallying Cry, Agile, etc.) as it clutters more than helps.
    9. Consider using an addon like SimplePowerBar for the petrification progress bar, and other progress bars on raids like it. It really is nice and very customizable.
    10. Consider using nibWatchFrameAdv. It's a quest tracker modification addon. That way you can have your pixel fonts there too. On that same note, try to change the hour text on the minimap to pixel too. And your cooldown text.
    11. Is that the dps addon above the minimap? You could try and move it to the top left, and see how you like it. Even distribution may look nicer.


    That was all, it's all up to you. Of course any advice offered is subjective. Enjoy.

    Amazing critics over here.
    I made a couple of changes on my UI.

    Sorry could anyone tell me how do resize your image when you post it as a link.

    I realized that i do not even need bars so made some changes on my UI. Default + Bind Pad + MoveAnything + Weak Auras + MSBT

    I really don't think there is any reason why your dps meter should be that width. If it's for consistency with your chat frame, don't bother. Having your combat log thing so far to the right isn't useful either, as I bet you won't be looking at it in a fight because of it's position.

    Now this, this is something interesting. Imo a bit to cluttered at the actionbars, but pretty damn interesting.

    Thanks for the critique, some of the things you mentioned is stuff I prefer, such as the number indication on how much focus I have left (It is pretty much the only part of hunter dps, so keeping a good track of it is kinda important, too me :P), I will work a bit with a few of the other suggestions, thanks

    [E] How do I change the font using nibWatchFrameAdv?

    At line 116 and 118 in Core.lua you should see:

    Code:
    line.text:SetFont(GameFontNormalSmall:GetFont(), Opts.font.size, Flag)
    
    line.dash:SetFont(GameFontNormalSmall:GetFont(), Opts.font.size, Flag)

    From here insert path to your font, size and flag, example:

    Code:
    line.text:SetFont("Interface\\Addons\\SharedMedia\\MyMedia files\\font.ttf", 12, "OUTLINEMONOCHROME")
    - Nobody.. I mean nobody puts ketchup on a hotdog
