    That'd clear up some more space.

    I'd then also move the DoT monitor to directly below the Target frame, to clear up some space around your character to better see what's going on under your feet.



    And it makes them easier to click. *Cough, Cough*.

    If you're not going to keybind better, I would at least recommend something like Geist for more efficient button-clicking. And it saves screen space, too!

    Graphically speaking; you still have a long way to go.
    To further go on the dps meters. Do you really need to know up to 13 peoples dps at a glance? Top 5 should be more than enough, and that will reduce the space it takes up quite a bit.

    Also noticed (not that it REALLY matters at all but) your memory usage is crazy high. 77mb I can't even see in your screenshot what you are using that would raise that up so high. I personally hate mine being at 25mb and that's about as low as i can get it with the addons i use (can get to about 20mb if i just disable AtlasLoot but i like it too much )

    This is mine, pretty basic. At least to me. I can't post full links because I'm still new >.<.

    Anything to change is helpful!

    Your BigWig bars are still not 100% there
    Text is wrong size and it's icons are still "pinched" skinny.

    Maybe reduce the amount of bars shown in your Skada but make the bars themselves bigger(taller) the font seems too small (you can tell by the "f"s in Duff's name.) Whatever font size it is you are using for your unit and raid frames is the correct size for that font.

    Overall looks much better and has progressed very nicely!

    Adding on to what's been said.

    Target buffs/debuffs need to be moved higher, they're clipping the border. Same with the debuffs on your player frame. Minimap font size is wrong. Eclipse bar needs a border, can be done with KGpanels fairly easily.

    Tips or suggestions are welcome.

    Pic.

    A lot of my keybinds are situational and get changed from fight to fight. (Like Banish being on 6. That's for Lei Shi.)

    Someone posted a bit of LUA code to try to make a border work on my eclipse bar, it didnt seem to work, will have another look at it.
    Kgpanels is gonna be a bit "DafuQ" for me as I've never really used it before :P

    Update on a few changes in my UI.

    - Disabled PixelMode in ElvUI (mode that changes borders to black 1px) so now everything matches that same look i created from my unit and raid frames. (raid frames had to be highly edited after turning off PixelMode cause it had created additional borders around the health and power bars. So edited to once again look like it did in PixelMode.)

    - Changed the height of my chat frame kgpanels to match exactly the height of my Skada.
    - Flame Shock duration and Unleash Elements cd Weakauras moved to inbetween player and target frames. Totem durations are above this. (replaces that portrait i used to have)

    It's as simple as making the parent frame the Eclipse bar.

    Still not allowed to post links.. Heavily inspired by LED++.
    Please give some feedback. I'm trying to get rid of the threat from the unitframes.
    Omen only shows in combat and party. (Had that option off now though)

    The UI at whole looks better on my other laptop with 1920x1080

    Hey guys!
    I've used ElvUI for a long time, but I finaly got bored of it, and decided to build a new UI.
    This is what I've gotten so far. Only thing I want to change at the moment are the raid frames, not really happy with these yet.

    Please tell me what you think!

    Not allowed to post images yet, anybody who can fix the image for me? Thnx!

    Looks good! It's a good LED inspired UI. That pixel font is one of the few I like and it fits in well. You just need to sort out your chatbox chat spacing and your omen texture/font placement. I'd also perhaps implement the EXP bar somewhere else. Seems a little out of place dumped at the top of the UI!

    Just thought I'd add mine with actionbars. Nothing major just added them at the bottom!

    Exp bar is just there for the time being...
    I'll have a look at the omen font and texture displacement.
    The fontspacing is a weird weird weird issue.

    Code:
     chat:SetFont("Interface\\Addons\\SharedMediaAdditionalFonts\\fonts\\font.ttf", 8, "OUTLINEMONOCHROME")
     chat:SetSpacing(3)
     chat:SetShadowOffset(0, 0)
    ElvUI places different channels under different objects. (My guess) Which makes the spacing easy for one object but spacing different channels is... Weird..

    So do you literally take everything out of the screen then start to add only what you need whening making these UIs or what? I would love to create a nice looking UI like some of these that are very minimal, but I just get lost in all of it and end up giving up and just going with a premade comp like ElvUI or something.

    Personally, no. my UI is the product of many years of doing small changes a couple times a week, adding new addons to take care of a part of the default UI I don't like on the way.
    Then a major overhaul once a year or whenever I find out I just don't like how it has turned out in the long run.

    What one person hides might be something the next person can't live without. I don't think most of these "nice looking UI's" you're talking about came to life within one day. Nothing is perfect, there's always something you want to change.

    Hey!
    Was wondering if you'd be able to send me your chat addon, and the changes you made to increase the line spacing and monochrome outline!
    Cheers!

    Pretty much this. Just take a look at the link in my signature and you'll see just a handful of my screenshots I've found since Wrath.

    I won't be able to give you the chat addon but you can download it yourself. It's PhanxChat from wowinterface. Then all you'll need to do is copy this bit of code anywhere in the core.lua file inside PhanxChat.

    Code:
    ChatFrame1:SetSpacing(3)
    ChatFrame1:SetShadowOffset(0,0)
    ChatFrame2:SetSpacing(3)
    ChatFrame2:SetShadowOffset(0,0)
    ChatFrame3:SetSpacing(3)
    ChatFrame3:SetShadowOffset(0,0)

    That will create spacing for the first 3 chat boxes you have on screen. If you want that many.

    Perfect, thank you very much.
