Thread: Post Your UI

  1. #6781

    First shot at the new build.
    Stuff to sort:
    Better tracking of Shadow Orbs
    Border for Minimap
    Making the Health % number disappear when the target is at full health
    Vuhdo/Grid

    Any ideas, tips'N'trixs? Please, do tell.
    No Envy, No Fear

    Some people have asked about what my UI will look like in Mists. It's not terribly different though I'm going to be using something a little different for unit frames. For tanking/healing I like centered unit frames. I'll probably go back to leading the 25m alt run horde side so I shrunk UI elements a bit to make room for additional information (though what that'll be has to wait until I see what raid content is like).

    I've still got 10 days to get this all sorted but hopefully I can contribute something interesting.

    Ignore the text - I just finished making layouts work and haven't connected it back to the class that drives the display.

    My priest is going to look similar to how it used to but I'll be using the more 'precise' visual style you see in the screenshot. Thin boarders, consistent spacing everywhere. I can't see doing 25m content on my priest next expansion (I like the individual responsibility you get in the smaller size so I prefer that as my 'main' raiding experience). The basic layout will be fairly similar to what it's always been from previous videos because that proved to work well.

    A new UI series for 5.2Steal my old UILearn about WeakAuras • Nobody to raid with right now so no PVE videos.

    Can you please let me know the name of the font that you use in your UI. I have been trying to find it but I have had no luck.

    EDIT: Never mind. After a lot of searching I think I found that it is Prototype. One question though, how did you get the Bartender font for keybindings to change? I couldn't find that option anywhere in Bartender's settings.

    Hi guys! I've been working a complete rebuild and would really appreciate some feedback. Here's a few shots for you guys to take a look at.

    http://imgur.com/a/pWHav


    The first shot is just to show raid frames. I used touchy's (best guy on the internet) tutorial to set them up and plan to go back to customize them a little. The 2nd is in combat and shows all the important stuff. The last is a customary idle shot for no good reason.

    A couple of things before you tear it apart:
    - Rather than shoot for perfect pixel alignment, I've tried to align in broader strokes. Pixel perfect will come once everything else is done and I feel like I can sit and nitpick.
    - The target frame is ultra boring and I would love some ideas as to how to make it more interesting looking and relevant.
    - The bar right above Hp is a Weakauras dynamic group that functions a bit like a rotation helper.
    - There is some redundancy between my proc filter and the buff bar in the top left corner that is currently low on the priority list of things to do (but I will get there eventually).

    Alrighty, have at it!

    I guess the frame with the portrait is your target frame, right?

    It has some nice ideas, true. I am curious what the finished UI look like.
    I'm a mess of unfinished thoughts

    I'm trying to figure out where I can put my power auras. I've tried around the center, near the bottom but I can't find a good place, anyone have any suggestions?

    Raid: http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t...612_152411.jpg

    I'm always tweaking things, but I'm pretty happy with the way it looks right now. Suggestions welcomed, though.

    If its cooldowns and stuff that will be visible throughout an entire fight then I'd put it close to your bar or own health frame since you seem to be a tank, and if its more like debuffs such as Fading light and similar then I'd suggest putting it as a bigger aura bit closer to the middle so that it is harder to miss, but still not in the way to make you unable to see whats going on.

    My buffs I put up (bastion of glory, etc), boss debuffs and such. I'm trying to get away from having my action bar shown all the time. Also, there any way to get power auras to let you display auras when you're not editing them so you can line things up, etc?

    If you have patience you can get Weak Auras and create a dinamic group with all your cooldowns so you dont have to bother with lining up stuff.

    I'll look up dynamic groups with WA then, sounds interesting. I will miss POWA though, love that addon just wished I could get em all to show at once to line em up, etc.

    ATM weak auras can do all that PowerAuras cand do and even more. Example of Cooldowns as dinamic group you can see here : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uHzdjSLuDY <- right side of player unitframe.

    This was my pre-5.0.4 UI. I'm still working on my current UI and it basically looks the same. I start with a clean slate every major patch.

    This is still in it's really crude stages but I thought I'd post what I have so far while the servers are down.

    Idle:


    5man Combat:


    Raid:


    Auras:


    A quick rundown on auras:
    • White / Red Skulls are HP
    • The blue bracket around my main 6 spells - Inquisition tracker
    • White / Blue / Pink Diamonds - DPS CD's
    • White / Blue/ Yellow/ Red Squares - Protection CD's
    • Blue / White / Pink Squares - CD Durations
    • The blue skull (behind the flame) - Exo tracker
    • The blue flame - Avenger's Shield Tracker
    • The bracket below the blue shield - AS Proc Tracker
    • The circle with all the numbers - Defensive CD's
    • The big red skull - Boss Encounter related, I have two, one tracks Corrupting parasite, the other fading light.
    • The circle next to the big skull - SS tracker.


    AddOns:
    • KGPannels
    • Grid
    • SUF
    • PowerAuras
    • Dominos
    • Masque
    • Skada


    To do list:
    • I plan on switching from grid completely to VD because I'm tired of mouseover macros and like the utlity in VD.
    • I plan on reworking the overall theme from plain blue to a more "tech" like blue, I'm currently working on custom borders and pannels in photoshop.
    • Adding a Buff / Debuff addon that is to my liking. Not sure if SBF is working, haven't tried.



    Please comment! <3

    P.S. I hope I posted the images correctly. ._.
