    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.

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

    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.

    I may consider making it available for download in the near future.

    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. ._.

    I've started asking addon authors for permission to distribute their work as a collection. No promises yet…

    My video card melted down (literally, black smoke and everything) the other day so I fell behind schedule. I installed a replacement late last night but need to buy a bunch of adapters to get my screens plugged in. Hopefully late tonight I can find a couple of hours to finish off the gcd/cs/holy power bar. I think I might steal Kait's idea for using cropped auras as bars. I had used them behind unit frames to highlight states like no seal/no righteous fury, need cleanse, etc. His bar idea is very clever and I think it's the kind of animation that improves a UI rather than being needless noise.

    Writing my own threat meter has been more work than I thought. It's quite a boring bit of code to write…maybe I'll just use weak auras for that.

    Fingers crossed, can't wait to try it out if it comes to fruition.

    Oh, that would be so awesome..
    and i did not know Weak Aura's could be used as a threat bar? you think it could make a cast bar ?

    That's how I did it for my tank classes. I think kait's moonkin ui did that too and it has some interesting features.
    Mine does it for the combination GCD/holy power/cast bar. I use the cast bar color to indicate status like a proc for 3 holy power and to color code my enemies casts (most cast bars give interupt/not interupt, but with a little lua you can make weak auras have interupt, not interupt/you could interupt but it's not important/you can't interrupt and you'd better pop shieldwall too) based on spell names/ids/health/the status of your interrupt ability/etc and have it shout "I kicked something I shouldn't have" when you screw up (like on maloriak) or make a special alert when you have to cover somebody elses kick (like heroic nefarian).

    I think I might have even made a very basic cast bar tutorial video about it early on but I don't recall for certain. If not, just set the trigger to status -> cast and then tweak it from there.

    It's not great for casters who will micro-manage channeled spells (warlock, priest mostly) but it's perfectly fine for a mage or melee class who would only really use it to show trade skills, mounting, or enemy cast bars.

    Thanks for the info,
    for now i just wanna steal your unit frames.
    il work with Weak Aura's once i get chance to properly sit down and play with it. right now il be happy with just the unit frames and the font. the rest i can put together rather quickly. seen as i have a lock / priest and mage i think il stick to gnosis / quarts for cast bar,

    one favour i will ask of you tho. could you please for the love of god post me the custom lua you have for your Target frame,
    <3 Thanks

    I cannot express just how much I like the chat box at the bottom. Brilliant idea. Could you share how you did this please because I am so stealing this!

  18. #6838
    there are 4 chatboxes (you can creat as many you want).
    Chat 1 = trade spam
    Chat 2= Guild+officer
    Chat 3= personal/social stuff (whisper/realid conv)
    Chat 4= raid/party/bg

    InB4 Led tells you almost all your pixel fonts are incorrect sizes.

    Also, I assume that is the target's portrait behind those debuff icons.
    A portrait is practically useless as it is, but becomes even more useless when covered up...
    I don't understand why there is a portrait there to begin with.
