Shadowed Unit Frames  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: v4.1.21
by: Shadowed, Nevcairiel

SUF focuses on a simple configuration while maintaining the flexibility that most users will care about, preventing unnecessary bloating of the addon that sacrifices performance. While you aren't going to be able to set the health bar to be exactly 3.14 pixels outside of the unit frames, you can change options you actually care about such as bar height, ordering, frame height and so on. To speed up configuration, you can configure multiple units at the same time through the global configuration. For example, if you want to set the height of the Player, Target, Focus and Party frames to 50 then the height of Target's Target, Target's Target of Target, Focus Target to 30 you can easily do this by changing two options instead of having to do it seven times.

However, should you need a little bit of extra configuration do not despair! An advanced option is included that will unlock additional configuration giving finer control over the configuration.

Slash commands: /shadoweduf (/suf)

Donations
Donations are not required, but are appreciated!



Anchoring
Are you driven crazy by your party frames not aligning up exactly with your player frames, even if it's only half a pixel off? The anchoring system will let you solve all alignment issues, by allowing you to anchor a frame to another and set a simple offset from the frame it is anchored to, or by manually setting the X/Y position of the frame.

Using the screen shot as an example, if you drag the player frame the other frames will move with the player frame preserving the alignment and spacing. Each frame can still be manually positioned wherever you want, but this gives you a way of easily anchoring and moving frames around without having to use a ruler.

Zone configuration (Disabling options/units by zone type)
Units and modules can be enabled or disabled based on the type of zone you are in. For example, if you want to see party targets and party pets while you are in an arena but nowhere else then you can use the visibility options to enable it only while inside an arena. Modules can also be disabled by zone type, if you want to see party auras while in a raid instance but nowhere else you can disable the module in raid instances only.

Profiles do not have to be swapped and it is all automatic.

Units
Supports unit frames are as follows:

Player: Player, Pet, Pet Target
General: Target, Target of Target, Target of Target of Target, Focus, Focus Target
Party: Party, Party Pets, Party Targets, Party ToT
Raid: Raid, Raid Pet, Main Tank, Main Tank Target, Main Assist, Main Assist Target, Boss, Boss Target, Boss ToT, Main Assist ToT, Main Tank ToT
Arena: Arena, Arena Target, Arena Pets, Arena ToT
Battleground: Battleground, Battleground Target, Battleground Target

Features

  • Tags: Includes a simple tagging system that can be customized in virtually any way using Lua, even if something isn't included by default odds are you can make the tags
  • Incoming Heals: Supports the Blizzard Events for incoming heal data, no external libraries needed
  • Auras: Can be set to only show auras you casted, or can cast on others. Can enlarge auras that you casted, and hide the cooldown ring on the timers of auras you didn't cast as well to make it more obvious which ones you casted and which ones you didn't
  • Aura Timers: You will need a mod such as OmniCC to show timers on buffs and debuffs
  • Aura Indicators: Display colored squares or icons for certain auras on any unit
  • Fader: Fades frames when out of combat and inactive (100% mana/no target)
  • Class Power (Eclipse, Holy Power, etc): Supports all of the class power features from Eclipse to Burning Embers.
  • Highlighting: Border highlighting of frames based on mousing over them, curable debuffs, aggro or you are targeting/focusing them
  • Range Checking: Fades frames out that are out of range of you
  • Exportable Layouts: If you have a layout, or your friend has a layout you want to try out you can export/import SUF layouts by going to /suf -> Layout Manager
  • Profiles: You can change from any profile to another one without reloading your UI, should you want to use a completely different layout based on zone you can easily switch profiles without hassle

Pretty much all the general unit frame settings are in, health bars, cast bars, power bars, portraits, indicators and so on.

Modules
Basic module support is included, should you be interested in building a module see the documentation on github for more information.

PingHansen: You can't change width dynamically like that in any sane way. Ultimately what you are trying to do is outside the scope of SUF, and doing that would be relatively complex. It's not really something I can layout without looking through the secure code a lot.

joonasv: Not something I plan on doing, inspection based features are something I avoid due to how annoying they are to implement.

z0rro: No you cannot.

wildbodom: Not something I plan on adding

Lightbulb Suggestion for raid frames

How about an option to fit the raid frames inside an area, with an optional max unit width?

What I envision, is what could very well be called dynamic frame width, where the width of the frames depend on the number of columns necessary.
I.e. if the raid is small, 6-10 players, two relatively wide columns are shown within the defined area, while for 11-15 players, three columns would be shown in the same space, for 16-20 four and for 21-25 five.
Above 25, perhaps the number of rows could increase (e.g. six rows, five columns for 26-30), possibly with an option to switch to showing groups horizontally.

Alternatively, if you don't want to implement that feature, could you come up with some pointers that would enable us to cook up a module for SUF that implemented this behavior by dynamically modifying the internal values for column width and such and forcing a redraw?

Suggestion: Role color

Some users would be extremely happy if there was an option to set health bar color to update according to the units role the same way Gridstatusrole plugin for Grid does. This is done through the addon inspecting the unit when in range (it also changes the color when switching to a different spec). Especially for healers, like me, it is useful to see for example all tanks red, melee as yellow and healers green. This allows faster decision making with one glance.

Currently, there is an option to set health bar color according to class, health percent or own choosing. If the suggested functionality was included in SUF, one would simply select "role". Drool...

Through trial and error I've figured out what most of them are, but this can't be right.

Version is current from wowi.
Okay it is an addon interaction. Disabling everything else made it go away. Grr. I hate chasing these down.

Exclamation Error in pet raid frame

There is an error in pet raid frame. If you limit columns to two and max per column to 5, you will get a weird layout.

Screenshot and config file available on request.

Sounds like you want to look into Satrina Buff Frames.

Luckily, I am satisfied with the way Shadowed UF handles auras, so I was able to eliminate SBF (I've got too many addons as it is), but SBF does give you a lot of freedom. That off course opens another can of worms

Re: Re: Re: Something about auras

Originally posted by netheril96

It seems that I must leave enough space above the frame so that auras will not exceed the screen

I have limited the number of buffs to 16 and debuffs to 8, so again I know that it's possible ;o) I display two rows of 8 buffs and one row of (surprise!) 8 debuffs. I've set the icon size to 21 in order to fit the width of my player unit frame.

This is the relevant snippet from the configuration file,
profiles.default.units.player:

Code:
["auras"] = {
	["debuffs"] = {
		["perRow"] = 8,
		["anchorOn"] = false,
		["y"] = -6,
		["maxRows"] = 1,
		["enabled"] = true,
		["enlargeSelf"] = false,
		["x"] = -1,
		["anchorPoint"] = "TR",
		["size"] = 21,
	},
	["buffs"] = {
		["perRow"] = 8,
		["temporary"] = true,
		["anchorOn"] = false,
		["anchorPoint"] = "BR",
		["maxRows"] = 2,
		["enabled"] = true,
		["y"] = 6,
		["x"] = 0,
		["size"] = 21,
	},
},

It seems that I must leave enough space above the frame so that auras will not exceed the screen when there are too many.I prefer frames in the top of the screeen rather than in the middle.

I like the style XPerl handles it,that is,to leave space between buffs and debuffs.

But I just found that Shadowed UF does have the ability to distinguish dispellable effects.Dispellable effects have a different (it seems white to me) edges.But I really like to configure it myself.

Oh,I made it wrong.Seems to me now that the color of the border indicates dispel type.

Something about auras

I previously used XPerl and switched to Shadowed UF recently mainly for a better look
I found two things annoying about SUF
First there is no way to separate buffs and debuffs.There IS an option to group buffs and debuffs,but they are not distinctly separated.In XPerl,there are a line of space between buffs and debuffs.
Second,SUF has no(or I haven't found) the function of highlighting dispellable buffs.As a mage,I always want to steal some awesome buffs from mobs and XPerl will always remind me by highlighting dispellable buff.

I hope you guys can tell me how to fix these problems.Or should I wait to a next build?

Thanks in advance.
