Stuf Unit Frames (and Raid)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 7.1.001
by: totalpackage [More]

** WoWI's Pick of a Week
** YouTube Intro
** YouTube Starter Guide
** Users' UI with Stuf

Stuf is a replacement to StellarUF. Stuf has the same initial layout and feel of StellarUF, but Stuf is highly customizable.

Do not expect much since this mod's purpose is to replace the Blizzard's main unit frames, not other unit frame mods. I'll most likely deny requests to copy random features.

Noteworthy Recent Additions:

  • New for 3.3: LFG icons and Boss frames (only for certain encounters)
  • Option to only show custom text on mouse-over
  • Latency indicator for player casting bar
  • Arena Frames
  • ButtonFacade support for aura icons
  • Option to use Lua instead of text patterns for advanced users
  • Option to save per character

Supported Units:
  • Player, pet, and pet target
  • Target, target of target, and target of target of target
  • Focus and target of focus
  • Party with their pets and targets
  • Arena with their pets and targets (new in v3.1.005)
  • StufRaid - main raid, raid pets, and raid roles (tanks/assist) and their target and target of target (does not and will not support oRA2/CTRA MT/PT)

Notable Features:
  • Easy transition from Blizzard default frames
  • Cast bars for the main units
  • Dispellable debuff visual
  • Target and focus timer bars for your buffs/debuffs
  • Threat bars on target and focus
  • Shaman totem timers, Death Knight rune bars, and Druid mana bar
  • Low memory and CPU usage compared to popular unit frame mods
  • Customization similar to Discord Unit Frames
  • LibSharedMedia-3.0 support for textures and fonts
  • Ace3 dialog config is used for the options GUI
  • Stuf_Range - LibRangeCheck-2.0 support for estimated distance on target and focus
  • Clique support for click-casting
  • ClassColors custom class color and ConfigMode support for one-button-config
  • ButtonFacade support for aura icon skins (may be buggy)

How to Use:
  • Basic - make sure Stuf_Options is enabled; it's required for initializing defaults and changing settings
  • Options menu - "/stuf" or check the Addons tab in Interface Options
  • Hide party in raid - Stuf obeys Blizzard's option to "Hide Party Interface in Raid"
  • Show/Hide elements - many are hidden/shown by setting the alpha or color alpha to zero
  • Slider nudging - (bug Ace3 people for a better way), I do the following:
    1. Move your cursor over the text above the slider, a tooltip should be showing.
    2. Move your cursor up until the tooltip disappears.
    3. Left-click.
    4. Move your cursor back over the slider until the tooltip reappears.
    5. Now you can nudge using mouse wheel.
  • For sliders, you can also manually input values and press enter.
  • Many options, so I suggest checking each option one-by-one
  • StufRaid:
    • Options menu - "/stufraid" or check the Addons tab in Interface Options
    • Basic - StufRaid does not require Stuf, and Stuf does not require StufRaid
    • Special text - install UTF8 to support special characters for the name text sub-string feature

Features Lacking (forever):
  • No profiles, but you can save per character. Profiles would at least double the memory usage (plus more for each profile you create) of Stuf due to its massive saved variables. Check out Reflux to add profiles options to Stuf and other mods.
  • Showing raid instead of party frames when in a party.
  • Advanced buff/debuff filtering for main units.
  • Switching frames when in vehicle
  • Full-featured casting bar (no GCD, breathe, cooldowns, etc)
  • Anything that would really kill performance and lack usefulness
  • Anything for which already has a great standalone mod
  • Anything picky about text that can be done using Lua text
  • Color health bars if mob is tapped

Known Issues:
  • You cannot right-click Stuf's player buff icon to cancel shape-shift forms (ie. druid forms and shadow form) since they're protected now.
  • You cannot select "Set Focus" from the right-click menu. Make a "/focus" macro instead.
  • 3D model showing full body instead of face cannot be fixed. (fixed in 5.0!)

Strangely enough, it's working fine for me on WoD Beta, but not on the Live Servers' 6.0.2 patch. A workaround for now is to disable Buffs/Debuffs on each Stuf frame that you have active. At least that allows me to use it without the following error:

Exclamation Update?

6.0.2 release?

For anyone wondering: I'm having luck going through my frames (e.g. Player, Target, Target target, etc.) and disabling then enabling them. This seems to get them going. However an official update would be nice.

Didn't have time to update this last night but the missing frames did not survive a log out/log in. Also, when loading up the main "Player" frame only shows "90 race" and the health, hp percent, and energy text. Only sometimes will it show the full amount of text (e.g. player name, etc.).

By default, it's Text 6 for the Target unit. If it's shown correctly, the default Text Pattern is the following:
 [gray_if_oor:OOR ][gray_if_tapped:TAPPED ][gray_if_offline:OFFLINE ][gray_if_dead:DEAD][gray_if_ghost:GHOST]

Didn't was in party. Sorry. Tested it in party, everything is fine. Is there a possibility to show the aggro color also when soloing? The red border is somewhat more visible as the little combat symbol.

Keep up the good work.

Are you in a party when testing the aggro color?

On another note, I have a suggestion for a feature (although I'm not sure if it's possible).
I'd like to be able to set my "Target" frame to be in a certain location based on where I am and have "Text1" and "Text3" move as well.

  • If I am currently in an arena instance, I'd like the "Target" frame to be just above my "Player" frame so that it would be nearer to my Grid2 party frame. I'd also like "Text1" ([name]) and "Text3" ([class:curhp] | [power:curmp] | [perchp]%) to essentially swap positions on the X axis.
  • If I am currently in a battleground, I'd prefer the "Target" frame to be on the same Y axis as my "Player" frame so it would be nearer to my BattlegroundTargets frame. The "Text1" and "Text3" subframes would mirror the "Player" equivalents.

Is this possible? Better yet, is it practical? Thanks for response in advance!

Suggestion for resting tag in Conditions

I didn't want to do lua text so I added

local IsResting = IsResting

rest = function(ca, unit) return IsResting() end,
and finally

to text.lua. That way [class_if_rest:name] will display your name in your class-colour when you are resting.

Hi, just switched to Stuf and I really like it - built with a minimalistic bottom-up philosophy, yet containing a lot of handy features .

I know it is a bit strange to praise minimality and then request a feature, but there is exactly one thing I am missing but that would fit into the "only reasonable features" mentality:

-> An option to visually add the current amount of Absorbs to the Healthbar (with a configurable color, optionally allowing "flowing" out of the frame)

The background for that feature is that when judging your own survivability, current absorb shields are just as good as your health (e.g. as a tank when I'm at 10% HP but have a 50% absorb shield on me, I may pop no cooldown whereas I would without that shield).

I already examined the "Show Incoming Heals" setting that seems to work in a very similar way, but doesn't take absorbs into account - I guess it would be best to have two separate options "Show Incoming Heals" and "Show Present Absorb Shields".

Some other notes:

-> "Curable Debuff Icon" was not available for my monk, but worked after I manually added a monk-specific initialization to Stuf.supportspell

-> I am using Stuf on WoD beta, seems to work fine! (except for problems with non-default textures, but all addons have those currently)

Trying to get so that party frames do not fade out of combat but the rest do. Any way of idividualy choosing which frames to fade and which to not ?

Re: Wod

Hey Total are you going to be updating this for WoD?
Yes, waiting for my beta invite to get started.

...1) I have targetoftarget 3D portrait enabled, but it keeps stuttering and resetting. Is there a fix for this?

2) Is there a way to manually flip the direction the 3d portraits are facing?
1. That's intentional since it's target of targets are refreshed periodically. 2. There's a way in code but doesn't always work.

...I want to display my current target and my targets target.

I know i could just enable the target of target unit frame but i don't want a separate unit frame for this. as well as that wouldn't show my current target...
I'm not clear about your question.
