Thread: Post Your UI

  1. #10041


    Raid/Combat Screenshot inc.

    It's sort of a remix of a build Touchy/evn did a while back. I added focus dots on top of the castbar and changed some of the settings that wasn't working for MoP. Also, added a GCD bar to the castbar itself. So all creds to him for the dot/castbar
    Ideas? Tips?

    Things to do: Decide wether I want my Health bars to match my Vuhdo, or if I want Vuhdo to match my healthbars.
    Also, find a place for CD trackers.

    *edit* fixed the link

    I just took the template.xml from my old UI for DBM that puts a pixel border on the bars and gives them a black background. (:

    But for the last 3 months I've struggled with a way of skinning buffs and debuffs.
    As you can see from the screenshot it's not right.
    Buffs are off and debuffs have a weird line up the top.

    Currently I use aurora for buffs and panels atm because why make your own addon when there's a great one that exists already.. The only problem it seems to have is with skinning buffs/debuffs. image: http://imgur.com/7sGKk26

    I was wondering if anyone has any experience with skinning default UI target buffs and debuffs?
    Or could offer any advice on how to combat the problems I'm having?
    I'd give rBuffStyler a try from wowinterface; it may help you and is a nice simple buff styler from zork.

    Let's say your unit frame is 160 pixels wide and 20 pixels high.

    1st. Make one kgpanel as 162 pixels wide & 22 pixels high. Parent it and place it directly behind the unit frame. Color this panel black. It will give you a 1px black border around your unit frame.

    2nd. Do the same exact thing with a second kgpanel, except make this one 164x24 and color it whatever color you want your border to be (gray for example).

    3rd. Make the last kgpanel as 166x26 and make this one black again.

    Just make sure that you have the correct levels for each panel so that the unitframe is farthest to the front and the third panel is farthest to the back.
    Been working on my next UI using this method for borders for a few days now and it's awesome, thanks alot for the tip!
    I do end up with ALOT of panels tho haha
    So far im done with castbar,target castbar,mirror, unitframes (player, pet, target, focus), minimap and i am up at 47 panels already, its going to be around 100 if i decide to go with stuf's raid frames instead of grid and when im done with the chat/skada windows.
    I sure am glad that kgpanels barely eats any memory;p

    You can download my old UI here. Just go into DBM Core and copy over the DBT-Template.XML into your current DBM Core folder.

    Still have a few adjustments to make. The UI is mainly Stuf, weakauras, bartender and skinner.

    Thanks to Kait(I forgot the rest of your name :/) for your Kait auras. I stole 1 or 2 textures to make my orbs huehue. Also the image isn't posted in tags because it's way too fucking big.

    The first thing I thought was "Dam! That looks pretty cool!" Then I saw minimap buttons.. And action bars in the corners (different sizes/padding, amount of buttons and positions).. Seemingly a default Grid..

    Anyways, what's the (...) in the middle?

    Uh, Minimap buttons cba to organize, it's really something REALLY REALLY minor for me lol. Also the action bars just personal preference, I like the way they're "organized" in the corner. Could make the padding/sizing neater but I'll do that at a later date and the only thing that is really out of place there is the stance bar + mount bar. It really just serves as a reference to what is bound to what.

    The (...) in the middle means I'm out of combat, when I'm in combat it turns into a VS.

    Also a little update. I made it when I'm in combat for a lightning sphere to orbit my health sphere, and when I target an elite a skull floats around the target sphere :>

    I love weak auras.

    Also, find a place for CD trackers.
    Depending on CD trackers you mean for say Hymn etc. or trinket ICD have you thought about either a small actionbar underneath player frame? Small Auras there? NeedToKnow?

    Except for a shadow at the edge of your screen, shadows are overrated. Tbh it only looks good if you really use great art like Roth.

    One of the first interfaces I made. I think that was with DUF.

    DUF and Nurfed and CT Mod were what got me into UI stuff.

    I actually really like this! Haha
    I think the borders, textures and colours could be improved (in my eyes) but I like the layout :P
    Was thinking of re-making it with a different style but I hate having 2 chatboxes open so I'd probably make it worse XD

    The whole point of a border is to graphically make it clear when an element ends.

    If the element and its border doesn't create a decent contrast, then you may as well not have the borders.

    These may work for your Unit Frames, which are relatively bleak; but they do not work for the very dark bottom panels.

    As the above user wrote, sort the borders out and it will look good.
    Now the unitframes looks "washed out".
