    The bottom 2 look more complicated because of my spells and class timers on top so keep that in mind. The Player frame also has a much larger height for the mana bar and a shorter height for the health bar since this is my Healing layout for my UI and so far I have found it more useful since Grid Raid Frames show my health anyway and never really use my Unit Frames to gather than information.

    The Top image is the old style and bottom 2 is the new with the bottom one using a cast bar:



    The image on the left does work when you click it but the thumbnail is not loading due to a strange error.
    MUCH MUCH Better, i know its just a simple touch but it makes a massive difference the only thing i can suggest is to put TOT in the middle between the player / target frame as if i remember right theres nothing there usually.
    would it be possible to make the player / targets alpha say 70% so it has a very slight transparancy effect similar to the background art that looks like it has a very slight transparancy if not then ignore that but overall mate. gimmie a download link. honestly you have done a great job here. boosted your ui from 7/10 to a good 9/10 (you get -1 point for no weak aura's lol but thats only cus im weak aura's mad) on a side note the Mana bar stands out alot as its so bright. hense the slight touch of transparancy may help blend it more to the overall theme.. then again it may make it worse.. but would love to have a look
    Well Done.

    This worked lovely, thanks. I changed the border/background color, but how can I change the color that the bar is? By default, it goes from that blue color to red when it hits emphasize.

    As for my UI, it's coming along great right now. Using the unit frames/weak auras seen in Emil's screenshots a few pages back, but switching around the raid frames and a few other things. Really liking the setup after raiding with it last night. Right now I have it configured for my Demo Lock and Shadow Priest, but I still have to configure my Fire Mage, Assassination Rogue, and Survival/BM Hunter before I even consider a release. Look for a screenshot or video this weekend if anyone is interested in seeing what I'm working with.

    Well Done.
    Thank you very much for the advice. It has been very fun using this UI with my new unit frames and now prefer it!

    When you say the player and target alpha I assume you mean the entire unit frame? I am not sure why lowering it to 70% alpha would be better as it would just make it harder to read and see it. Was slightly confused about that..

    I will need to look into Weak Auras at some point but when I make it downloadable you can always add weak auras to it, I am very bad with it and have never used it so if you post a screen shot after your done I can see how it makes it better and might try it

    I have the old version downloadable in my signature below but not with the new unit frame changes.

    I have It set in "Healing Mode" to have the player frame and the one on the right is actually the focus frame. In "DPS/Tank Mode" you can see it like you said by having the player on the left, ToT in the middle and Target on the Right. Why I have this Healing Mode to do this is because I like having the Boss as my focus and using mouse over macros on my Grid frames. This is so that I can see the bosses buffs and cast bar with the health and mana much clearer which is more important to me rather than seeing my target as I use the Grid raid frames for that.

    Thanks again! Really happy to hear you like it

    Anyone know an addon that shows the durability/item level of an item that is in your bag or on your character dialog? ElvUI Advanced did this, but I don't know a stand alone addon that does the same thing.

    Fizzle @ wowace does rarity colouring for the border and durability of your equipped items as shown on the character sheet, but does not work for your inventory.
    oGlow @ wowinterface does the rarity colouring for much of the default UI.
    Perhaps using those two as a basis for a new addon might be an option should a standalone option not be found.

    I had completely forgotton about Fizzle before you mentioned this, but have since moved to a broker addon that displays the lowest durability of my equipped gear which I found to be a more useful indicator at a glance.

    Do not, ever, put the raidframe in the right side of your screen.

    The reason is your hand/eye coordination. The left side of the brain controls the right side of your body and vice versa . that means you are "crossing" the wires in your brain while going with your right brain side to the left screen, which significant increases your overall reaction time.

    google it up, there are several guides to this and good explanation's why.

  11. #11731
    hehe thats funny; had no idea about that but immediately changed it when i first got the interface

    oGlow ftw, Haste simply makes the best shit there is.

    Huh, Didn't know that, anyhow, doesn't change that I've always played better with them either on the right or in the center and probably always will. Not certain why, feels clumsy having them on the left and my hand eye coordination goes a bit out of whack, if anything, the opposite of what you say, slowing me down and messing with how accurate I am. It's what I've always been used to and where my mouse tends to sit even when playing a dps, just a force of habit.

    I think saying that there is a wrong position (well apart from the middle center of your screen, as that's plain dumb) for your raidframes is quite a close minded thing, not everyone is the same.

    Also following along your argument, the left side of my brain largely responsible for logic and analytics iirc, is controlling my right hand, with raidframes on the left surely that's when you start crossing "wires" as you're trying to use the left to control something on the left ? I just have my doubts the biological argument holds much water due to how differently people think, if we were all wired up the exact same way surely everyone would have the same dominant eye, the same dominant hand, and the same dominant half of the brain, factor in the variables of the real world aswell, consider seating position distance from screen affecting the area of the screen your eyes naturally focus on, as well as plain and simple muscle memory.

    In the grand scheme of things there are just too many different variables leading to different people performing well with different setups leading to different preferences and different habits, (keyword being different anyone?) and ultimatley getting your gameplay down to the level where it becomes second instinct is whats going to increase your performance more than anything else.

    Anyhow, whilst it is an interesting topic, don't wish to derail the thread any further, lets see some more of those UI's folks!

    Well, here's what I threw together this weekend. I'll definitely be keeping this for the time being. I wanna thank Emil for the inspiration



    It isn't ready for release yet, still fine tuning a few things, but soon people. Soon

    Got tired of the circles. Few things still need fixing, like why my Skada window keeps moving down.
