Thread: Post Your UI

  1. #13681
    Hello! I've been looking for a UI for a long time (Can't really set a nice one up myself)

    I want it to be so minimal as possible for 1920xd1080.. Anyone that could share me anything? I've been looking through pages but didn't see anything fancy.

    http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/cat28.html is a good place to start

    Yes, the farming mode and control of the buttons on mouseover is why I like SexyMap. I just want a 1px border square minimap. Now that I think about it, this could be done with kgPanels and a borderless SexyMap.

    Here is my current WIP.

    Still not entirely happy with the Unit Frames, can't seem to find anywhere that the cast bars fit properly.



    ElvUI
    StUF
    LitePanels
    Litestats
    Weakauras 2

    I think it's looking really good Kalistez! I normally don't like ElvUI, but this is pretty amazing.

    Attempted this with no luck. The kgpanel frame and Sexymap would not line up even when parented. Anyone have a fix for this?
    Perhaps another addon or a way to line up the kgpanel without a blurred edge on 2 sides like I'm seeing now?

    dRecMap, qMinimap and Qusemap. dRecMap and Qusemap don't have an options interface, you have to mess with the lua and you can't move the map to the very edge for some reason, but they're still good.

    Unfortunately I have very minimal LUA knowledge. Though, at the very least, I'll try them out.
    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I like it. The "double border" is not exactly mine .. but yeah, except of that.
    I'm a mess of unfinished thoughts

    Neither do I. dRecMap's LUA is laid out line by line with comments on the right side that indicate what each piece of code is. I was using that for a little bit and then switched to Qusemap, the LUA is a big block of text though, so it takes longer to find what you are looking for. Best thing to do is have WoW open with whichever addon running and to have the LUA open in Notebook or some other simple text editor. Make a change in the LUA, save it and then /reload to see your changes in game. If you add different texts or something else to the minimap addon's directory then you will have to close and restart WoW completely to see those changes

    That's a cool UI. I'm not the biggest fan of the borders (like Lyn) but it's some inspiration if I'll ever get some time (and nerves *cough*) to work on my messy UI again.

    This is SexyMap by itself, and then with SLDT texts attached to it.



    The major limitation is that because you have to fiddle a couple of settings to get a 1px border, and one of them is the Scale setting (i.e. the scale is not going to be 1), you therefore can't choose any size you want for it. But it's a pretty normal medium small size so it's never bothered me much.

    Again - the only reason to use SexyMap over any other minimap addon is having the farming mode. Unless some other addons can do that, I don't know for sure if they do.

    I think regular fonts might be more popular if WoW's font rendering wasn't such that pixel fonts are the only ones that look as good as they're supposed to.
    Come on, die young.

    This is a really important thing that a lot of people overlook because they just don't realize. Sans serif fonts are rendered absolutely horribly in WoW, while pixel fonts can use the Monochrome flag to look crisp and clean.
    Another issue is probably the limit on font size, because one of the few advantages a sans serif font has over a pixel font is that it looks a lot better at bigger sizes.

    As for minimaps, ooMinimap is another good alternative.

    Farmhud can do this.

    Does Chinchilla support a 1px black border natively now? When I used to use it way way back (TBC) you'd have to put a panel behind it for it to look good.
