Thread: Post Your UI

  1. #8381
    [QUOTE=Malcanthet;19941162]Tweaked around a little.Would love some feedback if folks would be so kind.

    If you use pixel font make sure to have it in the entire UI (you can eventually skip chat). This means Skada/Recount and Weak Auras should have pixel fonts.

    Coming up on a final version, the text is looking BETTER, but not perfect however I think it looks nice as it is!

    I like it! It's a tad to simple / empty for my personal taste but I like the way it looks. Only think I can see out of place is the health bar size on the tolltip box being half the size of the HP number while your other 2 healthbar frames have the HP inside the bar.

    The green on Green bar and HP # looks a bit wierd but hey to each there own!

    thanks

    heres my ui

    Great UI and very similar to my new one. Placement of UI elements is near enough the same except I have the minimap and damage meter the switched around lol. I just use a buff addon such as PhanxBuffs but any buff addon would do. Then I just use Masque with a plugin to skin it. I suggest Masque: Darion as that should go well with your UI.

    I recently posted inn this thread about my UI. Now its time for 2.0, while not much as changed overall, I put alot off work into the little things and trying to learn more.

    My own toughs: I haft to consider if I can play with much smaller abblities bars, cause 3 of them fills alot. Its hard for me to not have them showen trough, a habit.

    Basicly, I know my UI is nothing speciel, but by now I'm quit happy with it. I feel like it does everything I want (Some things dosen't show inn this pic, cause I wanted a picture that was more clean than last time I posted) and nothing could really be changed much.
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?

    I don't want to be rude mate but it looks like you have downloaded a bunch of addons and just moved them around a bit.

    I sure did, not all of us downloads a coustome UI where you get all you need from start. Can you maybe give some actual advice, like I had from the first time I posted?

    Edit: To clarify what I do have showen inn that picture only;

    Bartender
    Titan panel
    Tiddy threat plates
    SUF
    Recount
    Prat
    Outfitter
    OmniCC
    MoveAnything (Mostly just to resize alot off things)
    Masque for skins on Bartender
    Grid/mana plugin
    DroodFocus
    DBM

    And quit a few other addons, that dosen't alter my UI or dosen't show inn that picture, such as needtoknow procces.

    lol I was just thinking the same thing. Not sure why you tried to blank out the names when you can see their names in recount and the big raid warning. But thats beside the point. You do not need to download a custom UI to make your UI look nice and still do what you want. There is nothing wrong with your UI and if it works for you then great. If you want advice on how to improve it then I think your asking for a lot since it looks very basic like the blizzard UI but just with some addons that have not been greatly customised.

    For some reason I can't view your picture again at the moment due to the site being overloaded but from what I remember I would download a chat addon such as "Chatter" or "BasicChatMods" since I can't stand seeing the blizzard buttons on the left side and not seeing the chat box in a nicer position without that edit box at the bottom showing all the time. I would also choose a nicer action bar skin such as Masque: Darion and make the unit frames nicer. Try looking at other UI's to get inspired by browsing around the UI compilations on wowinterface

    If your not much of a UI designer and don't care for its looks then just try to make your information as clear and easy to take in as possible by trying to make important information easy to see. I've recently been trying out the addon "Raven". Its very complicated to learn at first but you can do great things with it such as showing timer bars for pretty much anything so for cooldowns for example or your debuffs on the target and so much more. I would try to reduce the amount of space the action bars take up and maybe making one of the bars bigger so you can put your major important cooldowns on it which you need to keep track of... These are all just some ideas. Good luck with your UI

    EDIT: I absolutely love KgPanels for putting panels on your UI for backgrounds as hit makes everything look so well organized and clean. I would look up into that. It also allows you to parent addons such as Recount onto a panel so when you move it, the panel moves with it. This is what I've done to skin my Recount window to make it look much nicer. You can put all your action bars inside of panels which helps just for looks. You can go extremely advanced with that addon as well which I've done in one of my UI's in the past.

    Just Updated my UI with a few minor things. Also it should be ready for uploading for those who asked. Also finished with my Setup addon graphics and I am very happy with the results so that image is updated as well

And I don't know how I would give the target of target frame its own frames without it looking very odd and inconsistent which the player and target frame. I like that how it is But thanks again for the feedback!
    You may or may not have answered this already, but I'm not too interested in scouring through pages; what Unit Frame addon are you using?

    I think the comment from earlier "you just downloaded a bunch of addons and moved them around" means that you haven't given a lot of thought to the looks of your UI.

    A good place to start, for example, is to give all your addons the same look (bar texture, font etc). A universal color theme etc.

    This was taken ages ago, I haven't played in 3 or 4 months. Hopefully I'll be back soon it's a bit messy but I like it =3

    Yea, didn't keep the font the same, cause I find that I choose font out from what looks good as I go trough X part ^^

    I quit dig you're bars trough @Pharrax, looks nice. Cant even recall what addon that is? Especially like the information at the bottom, kinda replaces my titan panel so.

    Can anyone please suggest improvements to my UI?

    This is a slightly old picture now and since the I now have CleanIcons for my auras/buffs etc., the target cast bar is much smaller and less slap bang in your face, and also the tooltip is now snug in the corner above Recount.

    * Personally I like to have my own/target health closer to the middle of the screen (bottom mid sort of). Just easier to spot on the screen while keeping an eye on my dots and power ups.
    * Where are your raid frames?
    * And since your using PowerAuras (WeakAuras is another great one) you could probably hide most of your actionbars and just have the important ones show when they are on CD, with a timer ofcourse.
    * I'll leave the "aaaaah, not same texture everywhere and pixel perfection is missing" to the others ^^
    No Envy, No Fear

    I mostly play Discipline now so I think it'd be better if I get an upgraded screenshot tonight (which I do have just not on this computer or Imageshack yet).

    - My raid frames are the Grid in the top left hand corner which because I'm now a healer and generally watching them I can easily look up to see my mana.
    - I know having my raid frames there compared to say a central position is really weird as a healer but I've always had them there so the center of my screen is clear to play.
    - Since I now play Discipline only the top left Bartender bars with CDs on is visible and everything else is hidden.
    - I'll also add that during combat - when Shadow - Recount disappears and Omen3 shows up in its place.

    To the last point I'm fairly comfortable with addons and such but I've never looked into textures and pixel perfectino before; could you please elaborate? If by textures you mean the ones already in Addons I tend to try use Minimalist texture where possible.

    You really should post an updated screen ^^.

    Just two things, that haven´t been mentioned yet:
    - do you really need 2 different castbars? (I mean the one below your unitframe and the other slightly bigger one in the middle ^^).
    - I personally would hide the (black) background of your pa-timers

    Since I´m also playing a healer, I probably could not deal with the raidframes being not in the center of my screen ... you will always lose time looking up to the frames for your eyes are fixed at the center.
    But of course: when you´re fine with it, so am I ^^
