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).

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

  • 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)

Patch 4.1

As you are aware, patch 4.1 hit today.
Are you planning on releasing any update for this?
There are countless LUA errors popping up and really messing up things !

Its not a demand, just a simple question/wish.


Thanks

Yes, it's possible to use parts of the UI. In order to have the same bars as me, you need to copy these 4 addons over to your addon folder: kgPanels, Bartender, ButtonFacade and ButtonFacade_Darion. kgPanels is the gray panel behind the bars, Bartender is the bars, ButtonFacade allows you to manage skins for your bars while ButtonFacade_Darion is a skin.

Now that you've copied the addons, you now need to copy my settings for these addons, or else it won't look like iLive user interface. Therefor, you need to drag my addon files (kgPanel, Bartender etc.) from WTF < ACCOUNTNAME < SavedVariables into your own SavedVariables. You also need to enter ServerName < AccountName < SavedVariables and take the addon files aswell from here.

It's a complicated process, but it's not impossible. :]

Question (maybe a stupid one)

Hello,

Sorry for bother you with this question but I am not an expert with UIs. This UI is the best I have ever seen, buuuut I have a bunch of addons what I love and don't want to change them (healbot, Pitbull, etc.). If I am right when I download your UI I will got those addons what are in this package. Is there a way I just "copy" the awsome actionbar looking only?

Thanks for your time and sorry for my bad english.

I am using DBM to monitor that for all raid members, but if you prefer the ingame one you need to disable a feature in PitBull to show it: /pitbull < Modules < Hide Blizzard Frames < Alternate power (unmark). Then install this addon to move it whereever you want: BetterPowerBarAlt.

Hello its me again.

Hi there Ilive. I have yet another problem thats probably just a quick-fix.

When your doing Cho'Gall or Atremedes you get a special little bar that shows you how much corruption and/or sound you have at the moment.

Until now i have managed to work without it, but when we are progressing for heroic modes its kinda neat to have that little bar.

I can't seem to find it in my UI. :\

Help please.

I've never experienced that issue, and I can't by mind locate where the problem should arise from, but I am sure it's something related to an addon being buggy.

I would suggest you to disable all addons, and one by one enable them until the same thing happens with your casting lag. By doing this you can find the addon causing this problem, and let's hope it's not a big addon. :] Tell me what you find out.

lag issues

When ever I log in, everything's fine. But then I try to cast a spell and it goes all laggy, getting me down to about 8 FPS. There is this annoying tic tic tic sound, and when i can hear that, it begins to lag.. I really like this UI, been looking for one like this for a long time now, and it would be great if you could help me out!

(The sound is like when your spell gets off cool down or something)


Thanks in advance

-Jal

AzCastBar is the cast bar addon, and to be able to move around the different cast bars you can enter its settings through this command /acb. If you click "Edit mode" all bars will be visible, and moveable.

Im running 1920x1200 resolution. That seems to be causing my Cast bars to be slightly to the right(about a half an inch on my screen) Anyway to fix this?
Thanks

Reply to reply, again.

That actually did the trick! And here is a little nifty fact, you actually have to click "show" every time you enter a group, and you have to be party/raid-leader(or assist-promoted) in order to do so. But that does not bother me, so consider the problem fixed!

By solving my first problem the problem with showing debuffs in grid is irrelevant now!


Thanks a lot for the help iLive, really helped me out of a pinch there!

Keep making your UI's look awesome and i hope you don't run into more tards like me.

I think I know the problem. Try this: /pitbull < Modules < Hide Blizzard Frames < Raid (uncheck).

Yeah, I've added some raid debuffs on Grid (not all, still haven't encountered all bosses), but Grid can show everything, if you make it do so. Buffs, debuffs, you name it. You can add a debuff/buffs through Grid by doing this:

1. Grid < Status < Auras
2. Write the name of the debuff in "Add new Debuffs"
3. Status < Auras < Debuff: xxx < Enable
4. Frame < Center Icon < debuff: xxx (press on the added debuff)

Reply to reply! Yo dawg yo, heard you liked replies.

Yes thats what I thought aswell. They used to be there, that little arrow. You click it to hide/show the Blizz-grid.

But as you can see http://www.hellreject.be/images/Sundal_UI.jpg

My button is not there! The Hide/Show button is simply just gone.
It could just be that I am running Widescreen-mode and not 'normal'-mode, i honestly haven't tested it.

And for the debuff question(just because i havent been able to test it in a raid, yet) ;

Does it show important things like, who is being targeted by Atremedes's Sonic Breath?
If grid does that i really don't need the Target-frame to display debuffs.

And pardon me for my ignorance and lack of experience with UI-configuration, i hardly ever fiddle with my interface at all.


Thanks again.
