I'll start with apologizing for the delay on relasing this UI:
unlike most of the UI out there this has been built by me from zero with a long and meticulous work that is currently still in progress (and always will be) so i didn't want to just post bunch of files without explanation but I'd rather present you the addons i'm using and why i'm using them. I hope you will enjoy using my interface and hope it will help you improve your gameplay.
theare copy pasted from the addon website, while the normal text is my short comment on why i use that addon (it means you can skip the quoted parts for a faster read ;p)quoted parts
A : SexyMap
Despite the very nice appereance Sexymap is a lightweight addon, 300kb, that allows you full customization of your minimap. It has some very cool premade themes, it allows you to mousewheel zoom, it shows and hides whatever button you want. I use it in "Blue Square" preset but i also like Burning Sun preset.SexyMap is a minimap awesomification mod, supporting:
- Minimap moving, and movement of things like the quest tracker and durability frame.
- Customization of zone text
- Hiding of all buttons attached to the minimap (can be set to be always hidden, or to show on minimap hover)
- Sexy minimap border options, extremely configurable, with several slammin' presets.
- Ping notification
- Mousewheel minimap zoom, and auto zoom-out.
- A HUD overlay for resource gathering, target tracking, and more.
B & C : Classtimer
This is an essential Combat Addon that i use to track my own DoTs and Debuffs on target and procs and powerups on myself. Till a recent format i was using a modified version, fixed for me by Justwait ,to show even "external" buffs such as Heroism, Power Infusion, Tricks and Innervates. I use a custom texture called "bumps" for it. The addon is very lightweight, only 290kb.player bars on left, target in middle, focus on right, all can be moved
To track CC Effects you must set the CCed mob as your focus if its not your target.
Only icons and time can be shown if you don't want bars.
The text can be customised in the options by using, "%s for spell name", "%a for applications", "%u for unit name eg target or player", "%n for mob name"
This mod is set up with AceLocale so anyone who wants to add other locals feel free :)
If you want other textures for the bars, get the AddOn SharedMedia.
D : Bison
Bison is a simple buff addon that lets you customize buffs' and debuffs' timers, size and position. It's also compatible with ButtonFacade so it has a very nice graphical impact on my ui. It occupies 253 kb.Customizing your buff display.
- free position of all buff buttons
- support up to 40 buff buttons (the max size can be changed)
- individual selection of rows and cols for all buff bars
- individual selection of scale for all buff bars
- added ButtonFacade support
- added a first version of prog bar (spell id's can be shown on buff bar)
- workaround for CancelUnitBuff
E : AZCastBar
I used to have Quartz as my castbard addon, but it was very heavy and i love to have a lightweight interface, so Gatina suggested me this addon, highy customizable, very good for PVP aswell (you can put big focus cast bar wherever you want), and also comes with a customizable texture so very good looking. 87kbA highly customizable and lightweight casting bar replacement addon, with support for saved profiles and plugins.
The main release comes with the following plugins:
The player cast bar supports safe zone indication for both cast and channeled spells. This "zone" represents your latency, when the spellcast has passed this point, you can safely cancel the cast and the spell will still fire.
- Casting Bars (player, target, focus, pet)
- Mirror Bars (breath, feign death and fatigue)
The option dialog, along with the saved profiles are Load on Demand, which means it will only be loaded and take up memory when you're setting up the plugins.
The slash command for AzCastBar is "/acb". Using it will open the the option dialog. You can clear all plugin settings and reset them to their defaults by using the slash command "/acb wipeconfig". This does not affect the saved profiles.
F : Parrot
Ok, in one month or so you could come back to this thread and find out i'm not using parrot anymore.Although it's nice and highly customizable , it's not very lightweight therefore i may siwtch to MSBT if i can be harsed reconfiguring it ex nuovo. Also Parrot has too much delay on outcoming damage and this is absolutely not good as fire mage as you need to track ignites and crits immediately. So far i setted my parrot to have different scoll areas:Floating Combat Text of awesomeness.
Displays Events from the combatlog (damage, healing, ...) as moving text and numbers across the Screen. It also supports various other Events (Loot, Cooldowns, ...). Further Parrot offers a Trigger-system to display Text and play sounds on certain predefined events (e.g. Nightfall for Warlocks).
Incoming Heals (with also the name of the healer, because i like to know who is the faster healing me when i'm low on hit points and who overheals me just after)
Incoming Mana, to track potions, innervates ticks, mana hymns and mage mana restore abilities.
Outcoming direct Damage (with criticals stickied)
Outcoming Damage on Time Ticks
G : GoodDamageFont
Lets you customize game damage font, very cool looking.
