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.

  • 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.

  • 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).

  • Removed manually added raid debuffs.

  • 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 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.

I noticed you were a user of the old simple version, and since there's none now, have you managed to join the dark side (unique)? :] And thanks for using this UI for so long and motivating me to continue develop it. You've said "thanks" so many times, and even though I don't reply to them, they still make you feel good. I read some of my old posts here. :]

iLive user interface is back, but sadly I haven't returned to WoW. I don't have time nor interest, but there were so many comments etc. with people wanting an update, and I felt bad with no release, so I updated it again for you guys. I hope you like the new version. I'll still check this site and MMO-C intermittently in case anyone needs help. :]

I haven't received internet at home yet but a technician will come 27th and take a look. Overhealz, I think I will have to disappoint you and officially makes iLive user interface discontinued.

I hope you find an UI that fits you better than mine for the future, if you decide to continue your WoW "career". :] GL killing some bosses/players while I am gone.

I am first receiving net at the 18th, so I can't update the UI until then. I only have access to internet from school or when I go back home. Sorry. :/

I stopped because it was boring in the end, and I didn't like WoW affecting my education, since raiding in WoW requires you to be online at certain moments and not missing raid days. I was also a GM, so that required some attention too. I also moved into my own apartment this weekend, so I might need some kind job.

I can't inform you with a time, but updating the UI will be on my todo list. I hope meanwhile standard UI is satisfying for you temporarily.

I would actually like to knownwhat screen resolution you are using, which UI version are you using, what are you using the UI for and what's your role? Can you also post a screenshot, because I would like to see I'd you make any changes to the UI.

It's sad to hear that you have put World of Warcraft on the shelf, but if this is interfering with your Real life in anyway i'm glad for you!
All tho you are missing out on some cool stuff this patch.

I totally agree with this guy. I am horrifyingly picky with my UI, if its not perfect i hate it. And thats why i fell in love with your creation.
And I am not over exaggerating when I'm saying this is the most perfect UI i have seen in my life. Its exactly what i want in any way you look at it.

So if you could ever find the time to keep this addon up to date i will be forever grateful for your effort.
Keep up the amazing work Ilive.

I didn't mean to embarrass you of course. I play very very casually and this UI has everything I need. It is lovely and clean. I am quite picky... but this one is it for me, so any time you can update will make my day

I officially stopped playing WoW for like 2 weeks ago, and this has really made me wonder if I should continue with updating my UI or stop completely. I've learned the best motivation you can receive is when others tells you they like what you do, and that they want more. Just reading the "yay!!!!!" motivates me alone, and makes me feel embarrassed I haven't released an update.

Therefor, I will do my best to try and make this. :')

@smancho
Just move raid frames somewhere else instead of in the middle. You can unlock/lock it through /grid
