UI update coming soon

I promise.

Hopefully those of you still using my UI comp have been able to keep the addons updated and things running smoothly, but for those of you waiting on me to update things so you can try it out, I’m getting close to uploading it. There were some annoyances I needed to smooth out, addons to replace, etc…but I feel this configuration is pretty usable and stable now.

This screenshot doesn’t reveal much, but I’ve kept things very minimalist, yet I’ve added some extra stuff in this latest iteration. I also included an old school touch to the UI by incorporating some Blizzard textures. After fussing with ElvUI for a few days, I did this in revolt to the absurdly minimalist displays that some of the UI replacement packages leave you with. I’m all about having a large uncluttered world view, with things positioned where I want them, but this is World of Warcraft, and not some techie sci-fi romp. I actually like the feel of the traditional artwork and textures, and how they add to the ambiance of the game.

Gar UI in WoD 6.0.3

This design compliments the default look of the game’s UI while having all of the advantages and goodness that a custom UI provides. Some players go out of their way to strip every single bit of Blizzard artwork from their gaming experience. This time around I’ve decided to embrace it.

In my opinion, this is the best version of my UI I’ve done. I’m anxious to see how you guys like. 🙂

  1. Great work! Really appreciate you sharing this!

    You mentioned that the raid tweaks is keeping you from posting the updated version. If it’s possible I would suggest releasing as-is and then updating as you perfect it.

    I really want to try this out as well 🙂

    • I apologize, Trib. If you’re interested, I’d be willing to share a Dropbox folder with you and give you access to what I’m using right now. There are a couple of little things I’ve been aiming to do to it, but haven’t had a chance to get to; however, they’re mainly tiny aesthetic details. It can be tough for me to get finished since I actually need to be logged on to do it, which means I’m subjected to getting sucked into guild runs and what not. I need to find a quiet late night where I can log in for a few hrs and finish things up undistracted, but I’d be happy to share with you what I’m using at the moment.

      • If you’re willing, I’m prepared to guinea pig.

        Don’t do it because of me, though. Everything you post is helpful, and I (and I presume to speak for others) appreciate it no end.

        As for raiding and guilds, I’ve pretty much always soloed. I realise this leaves a big gap in what I experience, but I don’t play on a server with anyone I know, so there’s little motivation. That said, there’s lots of stuff in MoP and WoD I’m missing as a consequence.

    • Yes, everything is done with keybinds. There are 5 additional action bars which are hidden.

      Since I’m raiding again I’ve decided to change some things around and add some new features, which is why I’m lagging on getting this out, but I’m extremely pleased with the setup. I’m almost done!
