Thread: Post Your UI

  1. #8561
    Been swamped with my new job lately, but I have found time here and there to make UI's and test out ideas. Here's a few pics of my current UI(we all know I will be using a new one next week, and the week after that, etc.)

    Solo:

    In-Combat:

    I really like the sleekness of this UI, very good job .

    Just a quick question or 2; what is the font you're using? and the button facade skin? oh and the unit frames!

    Your only focus indicator is the text? How do you keep track of a cooldown like Master's Call, Scatter Shot, Snake Trap, etc.? ICD tracking?

    While it looks pretty I think you've lost a lot of functionality. ICDs, especially for a BM hunter can really increase your numbers quite a bit. Things like Scatter Shot can help a wild add on Will or Grand Empress, or a Master's Call on Stone Guard or Spirit Kings. While they certainly aren't commonly used abilities in PvE, knowing when they're available can be pretty important (and you may through a not shown CD bar, but in that picture it isn't shown). You're also showing target threat in two places. Not a big problem by any means but it is something that would bother me over time, however I'm not you so that may not matter.

    Lastly, you can't see your feet in the picture you're showing. Moving the whole UI down could certainly help. On a similar note why show mana/rage/energy bars on your raid frame? You don't have a raid CD that could help someone. Take away your resource bar on your raid frames, subsequently move the raid frames down by how many pixels you've freed up. Move your action bars and player/target frames down accordingly so you can see your feet.

    I hope I didn't come off as rude I just think you've got a pretty awesome base design and a few tweaks here or there could increase the functionality quite a lot.

    Little bit out of date but it gives the general feel of my UI

    Do you mind uploading it for the public to use? I don't mind if it very messy folders/profiles etc. I'll be able to work that out!

    Thanks alot!

    thank you, ill most likely not be uploading this one .. uploading in general requires you to give support and such and keep it up to date and it all takes time which i currently do not have much of. to answer your arena question .. no i do not i actually dont even PVP in rbg's or arenas never liked that part of the game personally.
    Thanks Caiti for the Signature and Avatar

    Bummer...well at least I now have some fresh ideas in mind that I can get to work on. (I have been lazy as of late with UIs, thus I have just been using ElvUI.)

    LED UI's tend to look amazing when you're not in a group, alone with just the unit frame up but messy when you're in a raid, so I'll post a vid in a raid =D



    Pitbull/Grid2/Azcastbar/Bartender4 basically. Am going to do the gradient background seen on the target frame (orange to red gradient) with the player/focus/targets target frames too, when I can be bothered messing with Kgpanels again =D Combat log also needs a kgpanel just like skada has behind it, the chat window has it but I think i need to make a second that anchors to the combat tab So still some small tweaks to go.

    Minimap and tooltips are hidden/shown with two macros (minimap is sexymap in the top right, tooltips are tiptac)

    Used to use LUI but when in a BG or 25man raid Grid would always annoy me being on the right side, and no space in the middle for a 25 man raid, well now under my unit frame a 25man size grid fits without needing to resize or do a different profile, obviously if you have a smaller grid then it would fit in there even easier, mines quite large cos i raid 10 man and like it. =D so all good.

    I really like it. You should use Clean Icons Thin for getting a more fitting button texture for your cooldown (with WA).

    The font used is Expressway Regular.

    The Masque skin is called Shadow.

    The unitframe addon I currently and will forever use is Stuf (Stellar Unit Frames). Easily the best and most configurable UF addon available. Of course, my unitframes were made using them plus adding kgpanels parented and anchored to the frames, but that is something I have almost always done with my UI's.

    I have more UI screens incomming today. Have alot of UI's I have been working on.

    Ah thanks for the tip! i couldnt find a decent looking Masque skin that would effect the WA.

    Okay so here's a few of the other UI ideas I've been working on. Note that most are unfinished and are extremely likely to change. After clicking on thumbnails, i recommend right-clicking the image and selecting "View link in new tab" as the images are not fully sized to 1920 x 1080 so lots of things will not be pixel-perfect. Enjoy!

    My MonoUI edit:

    My "Techno" font UI:

    My UI using a TextyUI baseline:

    My ElvUI edit with some simple changes:

    The ElvUI edit has since been made obsolete as Elv actually included options to make the UI pixel-perfect. I am not a fan of ElvUI that much, but he does come up with some interesting LUA that is fun to mess around with from time to time.

    It isn't a Masque skin, it just replaces all icons with 1px ones.

    I absolutely LOVE this ui. Have been wanting to do unit frames like that forever but I just dont know how to do it, and never got them to look that good. Do you have this uploaded somewhere, or would you consider uploading it? Im especially interested in the unit frame setup. The rest I could probably figure out myself.

    Love the unit frames. Could it be possible for you to upload these somewhere?

    Playing with this UI. Definitely still not done. Looking to find a new buff addon if anyone knows any good ones.

    And as always, criticism is welcome.
