Thread: Post Your UI

  1. #9221
    Adjusted my Unitframes some based on feedback.

    All font the same font.
    Moved target level, classification(Rare, Elite, Boss tagges) and Tapped tag to the upper top right.
    Got rid of current power line.
    Adjusted the power bar.
    Moved power percent to the right next to the power bar.

    About the argument: A 1px border with a non-pixel font isn't generally non fitting. There are enough examples, where it does. I - for example - am happy that carebear finally ditched pixel fonts. It was just bad with them (true, it was all crispy and such) but that was all. And yes, MY opinion, too. You can now say I am wrong etc, too. It's just ... a big screen and some mini unit frames with a font you can't really read when you are sitting ~50cm away from the screen isn't functional. It's just it.

    That's why I was gone from all kinds of interface forums for some years: always worshipping same style over and over again. I rarely saw something new, something good. Always the same: minimal - not always functional - unit frames with a shitload of pixel fonts. I miss the "old" days with tapestry, led's GOOD uis, rdji, ooom's, etc pp.

    Edit: I may add another one or two paragraphs. Mostly memorys or trying to explain things I write. But dunno. Maybe not.

    I personally hate any type of Pixel font. Hell, I even hate pixel art.
    Whenever I tried it in my own UI; it made me cringe, and it gave me this nervous twitch that kept trying to put a gun to my own head. I had to get rid of it.
    Most UI's just work better without it. In my own, superior, awesome opinion.

    I used to agree with you; but I also see why they do get used. When you spend ages creating that pixel-perfect UI where everything is lined up properly and you've spent far too long ensuring they are, nothing screws it up like a round font which looks out of place. Pixel fonts work very well (imo, anyway) in these setups.

    I can see how long I have something left with a quick glimpse, but that's me and that's why I use CoolLine. It may not work for other players and they may not be 'good enough' but I know that I am.

    But in all seriousness, a pixel font with monochrome outline looks so much more "solid" with the 1-pixel borders than regular non-pixel font with 1-pixel borders. It just looks silly.
    Of course I'm joking with the first part of this message, but in my opinion the font you're using now just doesn't "fit in". Sorry guize.

    Bring on the angry replies!
    I totally agree with you. I don't like using the 1pixel border without the pixel font. They are a match made in heaven! (or hell depending on how you look at it). I hate playing on 1x multisampling too which is why I went to a messy border with messy font. If I sort out having pixel perfection on a high multisampling at 2560x1440 then I will give it another go, but for now I'm just going to mess around with a few things until I get something I like :P

    i love you lyn. Long times!

    Let's have enough of the arguments and disagreements now, to each their own! We need more pictures and to have some love in this thread, like my love for Lyn and the many years of great addons/UIs created!

    Nostalgia is a form of destruction.

    Don't know why you'd think people dislike you. You've always had amazing UI's and your bluntness isn't really that harsh. My secondary art teacher had harsher words to say about my designs. :P

    I like that font, its a little easier to read, can we get a full raid shot if possible?

    I was just taken aback by how quick you were to shut me down after expressing my opinion. :P
    Also, hating someone over the internet is a huge sign of idiocy! Shouldn't hate someone that you don't know and all that...

    Pixel fonts don't always have to be hard to read though. The font that I use is fairly "rounded" and simple.

    I find that as easy to read as a non-pixel font, but I find it looks 100x better on a pixel perfect UI.

    THIS! This is what I think but could not think of a decent way to say it!

    Bars on the top right are Bigwigs test bars

    That huge bottom bar of nothingness is much more filled in during a raid :P and viewports let me see way more of the screen while tanking.

    I will also post a better screenshot with more of my addons showing.

    ---------- Post added 2012-12-20 at 03:11 PM ----------

    SS with more Weakauras and other addons showing http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/110...2012150320.jpg

    I moved a few things around and made some stuff bigger ( Omen and Skada)

    Why i use viewports, as i've said before they let me see much more while tanking ( which is very VERY handy) and gives me a place to put my bars/minimap/chat without them getting in the way.

    Out of combat:



    All frames, bars, and timers:


  15. #9235
    Your player/target debuffs, and/or buffs, are a few pixels off the rest.
    Im not sure, why you would want your timers and debuff/buffs on top, when the target stuff is down bottom. You could easily switch it around, and make pet frame above player frame, i think. But anyone to them self. Other than that, i really like your UI, looks very clean.

    Unfortunately with the way SUF's aura borders work, they're either going to be 1px too high or 1 px too low. The only other option is no border at all, which doesn't look as nice imo. It doesn't bother me too much with the way they are now, but I plan on switching my unit frames at some point to either pitbull or Stuf to fix that.

    As far as positioning, buffs are on the bottom for both player and target (the player's don't show in the screenshot due to a filter), and debuffs on top for player. Having them there just makes them stand out more and reduces the chance of missing something. Just my personal preference.

    Lyn, Tap switched to pixel fonts long before leaving the game, just sayin :P

    Meanwhile, I haven't done a thing to my Ui other than update addons since the xpac dropped and I haven't even opened wow in the last month or so.

    However, this font debate has sparked a desire to make a Ui without pixel fonts and Lyn will love it. Challenge accepted.

    Pixel fonts are still ftw though <3

    Tap used a mix of pixel and regular fonts for quite a while. And he had a way of making it not horribly bad. I miss his UIs ;-;

    BUT, Care what font are you using? :3
    I've been mulling over switching from a pixel font because my eyesight isn't very good (stupid prescription changed so I can't wear my glasses currently) and with my current set up I'm too far from my screen to make do.

    Generally "hate" is a dumb thing, 'cause most of the reasons why people hate each other are so idiotic.

    Maybe it is just me, but when I play on a big screen (okay, my screen isn't big, so) and I have only a small UF with a pixel font on it, my chat would have a pixel font and all ... In all that flashy stuff WoW brings (first boss hof, for example) ... there is so much going on that I would just not see what is i mportant cause my UFs or fonts are too small. And I am just sitting ~40-50 cm away from my screen.

    And even Led's old UI had pixel fonts. I didn't say that pixel fonts automatically downrate an UI. It's just that most UIs look the same. There is nothing "special" about them. They make minimal UFs, pixel font - nothing more. Nothing special.

    And try it.
