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
  • Changed the supported resolutions to: 1920x1080, 1680x1024, 1440x1050 and 1280x1024.
  • 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 class colors to be more different from each other.
  • Changed frames to be more faded out when people are out of range.

Power Auras Classic (notification)
  • Changed location and design for notification for Beacon of Light and Divine Plea.
  • Changed design and animation for Holy Power, and added sound when there are 3x Holy Power.
  • Added a notification for Daybreak.

  • Increased font size.
  • Changed border size to be 1 pixel thick.

  • Changed all panel names to be more appropriate.
  • Added three new panels to separate unitframes’ health and mana with a black line.

  • Changed action bar 1 to fade out instead of permanent invisibility. It’s now visible when you move your mouse over the action bar in the top left.
  • Added action bar 6 next to action bar 5 (the faded bar below other bars) to make the width equal to action bars above, and to allow more space for abilities.

OmniCC (cooldown on action bar)

TipTac (tooltip)
  • Changed tooltip panel size to be 1 pixel thick.

MikScrollingBattleText (combat text)

First find a UI scale that fits with you, and then you can work on the UI after that. There's kinda a lot to say when we are talking about scaling all the addons, so I think I will give you an image instead. It shows how to enter the different addons, and then you can work with the settings and make it fit your screen (look for scaling, or width and height). Feel free to ask, if you have any specific problems with some addons. IMAGE

@Etalia
That is very weird. I haven't received any replies regarding lockout or anything (except for the Grid, which I'll work on), so I don't know what the problem is. I suppose it has to do something with it being a Mac and addons working together with it etc. I have no idea what it can be, but I think you should ask in this forum (I'll keep an eye and see what it is): http://www.mmo-champion.com/interface-macros/

Hey, I absolutely love this UI, for all toons, but especially my healer. It's wonderfully clean and efficient.

However, since I installed and configured it, I have been getting serious, frequent system lockups. WoW will completely freeze my whole screen, and I am forced to do a hard restart (I'm on a Mac). I've also been experiencing intermittent lag when I didn't before. It usually happens in a raid, but it happens at different times - out of combat, zoning, flying. So I don't know. I don't show character tags and that's helped with the lag, but the lockups are still there.

I'm wondering if there is an addon amongst the list that may be causing this problem. There aren't many addons in your UI that I wasn't using before, but I still wonder if any else has been experiencing problems? Could it be Pitbull? I've used Grid for a long time. Not sure if there are other memory intensive addons in there.

Also, for the person who had problems with incoming heals, I also had the same issue. I had to do a fresh install of Grid and change the aesthetic settings to match iLive's manually, and then the inc. heals showed up. Still don't know what the issue was. :P

Hey. I love this UI. I've been looking for something like this for a while and it's working out pretty well. I do have a bit of a problem though. Although I have everything scaled to fit my screen (I'm playing in windowed mode on a laptop), the stock user interface panels such as bags, macros, esc menu, etc. are far too small and when I try to scale it back up, I can't get the UI to fit. Any tips? I don't have a ton of experience with reconfiguring UIs so if there's something specific I could do I'd greatly appreciate it if you'd let me know.

It looks more correct with the 1366 x 768 resolution. If you want to keep it (30 FPS you have I see), you just need to load bartender, sldatatext, sbf, chinchilla for it to work (I think). If you want to go back to 800 x 600 resolution, then drag every thing around the cornors to the middle and then choose your old resolution and make it fit that way.

It's so clear than you're using a wrong resolution. Try choosing the highest resolution avaible, and see how it looks. Currently things are scaled to your resolution x2, so things are out of the frame. Change the UI scale to the lowest (move the ping to the left) and then choose highest resolution, and post another SS. Then everything should be more easy and better to look at. If you haven't that much knowledge with UI's etc., we can talk through VT if you would like :]

EDIT: I have added a picture with boxes showing the name of each addon and how to enter the configurations, if you want to play with it yourself.

3. Yeah, there are many of them which has it loaded already, but don't forget SLDatatext.

Feel free to ask, if you have other questions, and I'm looking forward for you to test it, so I can hear some more opinions :]
Unfortunately Grid is not showing any incoming heals from any source, I'll try to see what might be the problem and thank you for your swift reply.

Howdy iLive,

First of all I'd like to say that I like your UI overall; however, few things I wanted to ask/ point out:

1) It seems that the UI won't fit( especially around the minimap) my screen even though my settings are 1920x1080 (Wide) and UI scale set to lowest.

Screen Shot: http://img205.imageshack.us/img205/4...1309193314.jpg

2) Grid will not show incoming heals even though it is selected and enabled...I'm not sure if this is caused by your settings or I am missing something.

3) You instructed to load "Qaen - Frostmane" profiles; however, only Bartender and SatrinaBuffFrame have this profile and other addons don't( perhaps only those two require profile loads).

I will be testing your UI shortly in ToGC 25 man and give more feedback probably tomorrow. =)

Keep up the good work!
