  • Most likely coming soon: Boss Frames
About
oUF_Nivaya is a unitframe addon with low memory and cpu usage. It is based on oUF by Haste, but still it offers the possibility to configure a large variety of settings ingame to adapt functionality and appearance.

So in order to use it you need the oUF core! If there happen to be any bugs or errors, feel free to report them here. However, before reporting bugs make sure you definitly have the latest release of both this layout and oUF!

Ingame Config
This Layout comes with an ingame configuration dialog, which is included as load-on-demand module accessible via "/ouf". You can change settings like frame positions and sizes, portrait settings, use of custom textures and fonts (using SharedMedia), buff / debuff position and size and alot more. Also you can toggle all my custom features and adjust settings concerning the Healer Mode.

Positioning: "Unlocking" the frames enables you to freely move the Player Frame, the Party Frame and the Raid Frames via mouse dragging. All other units stay anchored to those, however all the relative positions can be changed in the options too. By default, the target frame is automatically positioned symmetrically to the player frame as you move it. You can unlock the frames in the settings dialog or by typing "/ouf lock" or "/ouf unlock" (they both toggle).

Of course, if you don't change any source codes, you can update the layout without losing your own settings. More over this, it doesn't use significantly more memory or cpu time than other oUF layouts (currently it's about 90kb, excluding the config module).

Supported Frames
  • Player, Target and Pet
  • Target of Target and Focus
  • Target of Target of Target and Focus Target (both optional)
  • Party and Raid (also optional, both "Grid"-like, party including player, raid up to 40 players)

The "Healer Mode"
There are two different modes for Party-/Raidframes display. The first is a very minimalistic "grid-like" setup, containing no numbers at all. The second one has slightly larger frames and contains more information like health and deficit values. This one is supposed to be used by healers, but of course you can choose the one you prefer. Both setups are shown in the screenshots.

Also, in case you want to use both setups with different characters, I have included an option that makes the layout automatically pick the healer mode based on your character class. You can adjust this behaviour in the configuration dialog ("/ouf"). More over this, the layout is able to remember different positions and raidframe settings for both modes.

More Features
  • Castbar support for player, target, target of target and focus (can be disabled)
  • Built-in aggro coloring
  • Built-in heal prediction
  • Fancy debuff highlighting (A debuff filter is enabled by default, so you will only see highlighting for debuffs you can cure).
  • Options to automatically color health- and/or manabars by class or mobtype.
  • Adjustable colors, textures, fonts, positions and sizes for most frames and elements.

Supported oUF Modules
  • oUF_PowerSpark
  • oUF_Smooth
  • oUF_TotemBar
  • oUF_Experience
  • oUF_Reputation
  • oUF_GCD (Make sure to set a reference spell as described here, otherwise it won't work. I can't do that for you since those spell names are localized.)

FAQ
Here I'll answer all those questions which become a little bit annoying when I have to answer them a gazillion times in the comments.

Q: "I want my raid groups to grow from left to right instead of right to left / from top to bottom instead of bottom to top."
A: Open the config module and go to the raidframes page. There you'll find an option called "Spacing between raidgroups". For this value, positive values make the raidgroups grow from left to right (bottom to top), negative values make them grow from right to left (top to bottom).

Q: "I have a SharedMedia Addon with additional fonts/textures/whatever and I can't pick them from your config or they are not saved on relog/reloadui."
A: The problem here is, that these addons must be loaded before the layout, or else their stuff won't be recognized. This is usually achieved by adding the addon in question to the OptionalDeps in the .toc files of the layout and its config module. You can do that yourself or if you want it to be permanently added, tell me.

Q: "I'd like to edit the text tags on my unit frames (health, mana, etc)."
A: Currently you cannot change them ingame, but there are tag functions for HP, power, names, levels, classification and status information. You can find them in "tags.lua".

Q: "Can you add buff/debuff/hot/dot indicators to the raidframes?"
A: Very unlikely.

Q: "Can you add [insert random big feature]? I miss it from Pitbull/Grid."
A: My layout is not meant to be a replacement for Pitbull or Grid. It is meant to be lightweight without denying you the possibility to adjust the basic appearance and functionality. I am currently very satisfied with the features and I probably won't add more biggies. However, as long as I play WoW, I will keep it updated and working. Of course, you may always ask for easy-to-add improvements. But I really don't have much time currently, so you should prepare to wait a little bit before it will be done.

It already should be, as long as your fonts come from SharedMedia or SharedMediaAdditionalFonts.

My fault. Now really fixed in r44. Certainly! ^^

Didin't work with r43. I don't know if the issue apear with the 1.4 update, I'm new with your layout
Then I'll have to investigate this.. Not sure what is happening there, on first tests it works perfectly fine for me. Do you get any error messages (make sure lua errors are turned on)? If not, please send me the contents of your config file via PM (in [code]-tags please, the file is in your WoW directory: \wtf\account\<accountname>\savedvariables\ouf_nivaya.lua).

Try if it works with r43. So update, then change it and /rl.
If it still not works try to reset your savedvariables for oUF_Nivaya. Did that issue first occur with the 1.4 update or has it always been like that?

The way it looks now (r42+) should be like it always has looked, though I'm not totally sure. What would be better to you? With oUF 1.4 it had switched around for me, exactly contrary to what Cholerabob said. I found that very strange looking.

Maybe I should just add a trigger for it so everybody can set it the way he likes it.

Everytime I reload Ui or disconnect the health bar color turn back to default.
Any tips ?

..rface\AddOns\oUF_Nivaya_Config\oUF_Nivaya_Config.lua:129: attempt to call method 'SetFont' (a nil value)
Count: 8

I get that error when I try to change font size.

Ive been using this layout for a long time and love it. But since last patch my Buffs are darken and counting down becoming white. They used to do the contrary, starting full white and becoming darker has the buff wears off. I have looked but can't find a setting to change this. Is there a way to do it ? It is really annoying because i cannot see the stacks that i have since they are shadowed.
I also get this on my druid.

@everyone:
You are safe to remove oUF_Banzai from your addon folder when upgrading to r42 (only if you are using it, of course). oUF_Nivaya handles aggro coloring by itself now.

Fryght here..again

Noticed this morning on mage that I had the healer icon.
Could something be corrupt (overwriting old with new patch)
or does that have anything to do with how role icons are assigned?
Was thinking of reseting and starting all over if you think
that might work since I haven't seen anyone else with
the same issue.

Edit: Did some more 5mans and noticed when joining group,
I am first(in party frame order) and had tank icon and whoever
was second had the healer icon no matter who was second
they had the healer icon. This happened 4 runs in a row till
I had to log. Later I reverted back to the version prior to the combo
point fix and it worked correctly. So I don't know what's
happening.

@Fryght:

I'm not assigning the icons, I only tell oUF where to place them. So unfortunately I don't have any influence on who gets which icon.

Though that has never happened to me, anyone else got this problem?

Wrong dungeon role icons

I noticed you added them in. Problem is when I'm on my warrior it marks me
as tank even though I signed up for dps only. Tried it several
times and made sure I only signed up as dps instead of both(to see if that was an issue).
Personally I kinda like them so I can clearly
see who the healer is.

After years of trying different unit frames..this is the BEST!!
Great looking, working, low resource oUF layout.

Invert the raidgroup offset.
And no offense, but I answered this question about 20 times in the comments already..
