iLive user interface  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 4.3
by: iLive [More]
I believe the best experience I have had within WoW is creating user interfaces, and I would like to share my newest release of iLive user interface with you. If you don't know, iLive user interface is a minimalistic UI that focuses on simplicity, consistency and functionality.

Inside my recent versions I've tried to use a new concept where I hide action bars we don't need to see in combat: main action bar, class bar and other bars with abilities not used inside combat. You don't need to see your Holy Light, Nourish, Heal or Healing Wave, because it has no cooldown anyway. You won't ressurect people during combat either, use your mount or use a flask while fighting a boss. Therefore, these bars have been made invisible to give you more space for in-game content view. This picture should further explain how this works.

The resolutions supported are 1920x1080, 1680x1024, 1440x1050 and 1280x1024. Note that this UI is more suited for healers (especially Holy Paladins), so if you're a DPS or tank, I won't suggest you to use it. Also, this UI is made primarily for 10 player raiding, but if you move your raid frames, then using them for 25 player mode is also possible (check the questions below on how to do that).

I've worked on this UI for two years, and throughout this period I've received so much inspiration, help and comments that have helped me make this UI become what it is today. Thanks to everyone, and let's not forget the addon authors allowing us to use their awesome addons!


-------------------------------
Q&A SECTION
-------------------------------
Is it possible to see more content of the interface in action?
A user made a video of the interface inside a dungeon, which can be seen here on YouTube.

How do I see raid frames for more than two groups (battleground and 25 raid)?
I've made this interface for 10 player raiding, which means only two groups are shown by base. But, if you enter the addon Grid and make the layout show "Group 25" for 25 Raid and Battleground, and then unlock and move it somewhere else (example), you can make it work for any raid modes.

Where are target's buffs and debuffs?
I've disabled it, but it can be enabled it by entering the addon PitBull and enabling "Aura" in Modules.

Where are the clock, tracking and calender?
Hover the minimap with your mouse for clock, right click the minimap for tracking and middle mouse click for calender.

Why can't I see red warning text (not enough mana, not ready yet etc.)?
Leatrix Plus is a simple addon that removes many useless spam information (important are still shown), and it does this in order to make less disturbance. You can choose for youself what it should hide through its configurations, or you can delete or turn off the addon if you don't want these settings.

There's only need, greed and disenchant buttons for lootrolls, where's pass?
You right click the item's bar in order to pass.

What does the pink and red corner icons mean inside Grid?
The left pink corner icon shows the current holder of Beacon of Light, while the right red corner icon shows when tanks uses tank cooldowns to take less damage.

Does anything happen if I update an addon?
Yes, something MIGHT happen, so I won’t suggest you to update any addons. But these addons are up to date, and will be until the release of patch 4.3. In the time of new patches, I'll update the entire package for you.

---------------------------------------
HOW TO INSTALL
---------------------------------------
1. Download iLive user interface.rar (open the folder with WinRAR).
2. Enter the folder with your resolution (or the closest to your resolution) and replace the folders with the folders in your WoW folder.
3. Open WTF folder and rename the following:
ACCOUNTNAME ---> edit to account's name with capital letters.
ServerName ---> edit to server's name.
CharacterName ---> edit to your character's name.
4. Start World of Warcraft.
5. Choose original settings, and take the UI Scale to the lowest point inside advanced options (0.64).
6. Enter "/reflux switch iLive" in-game.
General

  • Updated most addons to make the UI compatible with patch 4.2, and changed the .toc file for the rest of the addons to make them appear up to date through login screen.
  • This UI only supports one version now instead of two (Unique and Simple).
  • All addons are enabled through login screen, and addons not used are disabled in-game.
  • Added following addons: Grid_RaidDebuffs, Clique, Raven, ConnectBartenderBars and SimplePowerBar.
  • Removed following addons: BetterPowerBarAlt, Satrina Buff Frames and Skada.
  • Changed font from Samson to Semplice Regular.
  • Changed font to be monochrome outline for all addons using the Semplice Regular font.

Grid (raid frames)
  • Increased height, padding, center icon size and max letters allowed in names.
  • Added aggro indicator to border.
  • Added duration to removable debuffs (magic, curse, poison and disease).
  • Added a red top right corner indicator to show active tank cooldowns (Shield Wall, Icebound Fortitude, Survival Instincts and Ardent Defender).
  • Removed manually added raid debuffs.

  • Changed frames to be more faded out when people are out of range.

Power Auras Classic (notification)

@Weidmo
It's intended, and you can change it through CowTip, which is the tooltip addon. /cowtip < show tooltips and then put them on Always.

@Aisryth
Sure, and don't worry, since it isn't my settings aswell (Ishtara's). This is for health:
Code:
[Outline][(if PercentHP > 70 then
    PercentHP:VeryShort:Percent:Color("00ff00")
elseif PercentHP > 35 < 70 then
    PercentHP:VeryShort:Percent:Color("ffff00")
elseif PercentHP < 35 then
    PercentHP:Hide(0):VeryShort:Percent:Color("ff0000")
end)]  [(if InCombat then
    HP:Red
else
    HP
end)]
Power:
Code:
[Outline][(if InCombat then
    MP:Red
else
    MP
end)]  [(if PercentMP > 70 then
    PercentMP:VeryShort:Percent:Color("0066ff")
elseif PercentMP > 35 < 70 then
    PercentMP:VeryShort:Percent:Color("0066ff")
elseif PercentMP < 35 then
    PercentMP:Hide(0):VeryShort:Percent:Color("0066ff")
end)]

[(if IsResting then
    "R":Color("ffff00")
end)] [(if PvP then
    "P":Red
end)] [(if IsLeader then
    "L":Color("ffff00")
end) (if IsMasterLooter then
    "+":Color("ffff00")
end)]
Wow, thank you! One last thing, I hate to be like just a thief but is it possible i could see the entire code for how you set up your unit frames? I really like them and want to tweak them to match my ui a bit if thats ok?

Letter instead of Icon

I really like how you have your PvP, Leader, and Master Looter as Letters instead of icons. I was wondering how you did that precisely? Thanks in advance!

Logging In

Just tried downloading your addon, looked very nice from the pictures.

Anyhow, I followed the instructions on the addon page, yet when I tried to log in it gives me "There is no World of Warcraft game account associated with this Battle.net account". I can log onto the website and Battle.net fine and even without your addon, but as soon as I use your addon, it gives me that. Anyone else had this problem?

I am sorry, but I know nothing about the SharedMedia addon that well, other than it's the addon adding the fonts, borders, background etc. This is definitfly a part I need to work more on.

Hey iLive,

I think I see the problem, the shared media folder links are a bit off under the /kgpanel config:

Addon has:
Interface\Addons\SharedMedia\MyMedia files\HalBackgroundA.tga

but the default extract path is:
Interface\AddOns\SharedMedia\background


There may be more issues of paths, but I only spotted two, the actionbar background and then the chat background.


Does that help any? That is the 2.2 version.

Hey iLive,

I appreciate the support, thanks.
The only time it looked to be correctly installed was when I first installed (in this case 2.2 since I got the message).
Even after the repair and complete deletion of all possible wow temp files I never did get the 2.2 message again.

Each install was a re-download from this site, as a completely new file (clearing temp internet files and d/l's), and I also restarted on one install.

I'll give it a go at the weekend and post back how it goes.
As for the mix up of files part, yeah I do some strange things in windows explorer but i'm pretty sure I'd not mix them up 4 times in a row .

I'll let you know how it goes. thanks again.

It sounds very odd. I think the reason for "iLive user interface" not appearing is because you've downloaded version 2.0 or 2.1, since I only added that sentence in version 2.2, but this shouldn't affect any of your problems at all. Hmm, you say you have used Blizzard repair and done all same stuff again, but it never looked like the first time you did it? I can only guess that you might have renamed folders wrong or something. You might have entered you battlenet account information instead? You still need to use your old account name in the ACCOUNTNAME folder, even though you have merged your account to an email. It's only a guess :/

Hi iLive,
great work, slick as!!!

I started messing around font sizes and the like but I made a mess and so deleted WTF, Interface and Fonts and re-downloaded and put them back in place.

On loading this time however I didn't get the iLive text in the login pane, so I logged in anyway (remember me was not set). Most of the UI came in perfectly, except the grey panels to hold the text, my res was the same as before (your 1900 wide).
I started to mess around a little but could not get the panels to show at all.

I ended up doing the reinstall process about 4 times, even taking out all chache files WDB, the lot. I then did a Blizz repair and reinstalled the UI, same result, the panels didn't show.

I don't think the server is pushing anything to me except macros....
There are no reg keys are there? for texture paths?


Anyway, rahter strange indeed, right now I'm pulling over a complete wow backup to see what can be done.
Any help appreciated.

Thanks.

yeah

you need to make a 1280x1040 for this. It'd be so cool. Lotta people have that, you'd probably get more hits!

Re: I have massive LUA erros since today noon

@GWSS
I think you should run "World of Warcraft - Repair" and then add the WTF, Interface and Fonts folder again (remember to redownload just to be sure). If this doesn't work, then try with iLive user interface 2.1 and tell me if there's any differences.
