Rekcinad UI  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 8.0
by: Rekcinad [More]
REKCINAD UI
A custom interface for WoW. Usable for Tanking, dpsing and healing. However, due to the setup mostly suited for tanking classes.

This UI supports both the 1920x1080 (24") widescreen resolution. A 1680x1050 resolution will follow shortly.




** Works fully with patch 4.3 and Cataclysm **




Installation
  1. Backup your Fonts, WTF and Interface folders in the main WoW directory.
  2. Unpack the downloaded file.
  3. Copy the new Fonts, WTF and Interface folders to your WoW directory.
  4. Make sure you select the WTF folder corresponding to your resolution, and rename it to WTF.
  5. Go into WTF/Account and rename "ACCOUNTNAME" to your accountname.
  6. In "ACCOUNTNAME", rename "SERVERNAME" to your server's name.
  7. In "Servername", rename "CharnameDefault" to your character's name. You can copy this folder for every character you own and rename accordingly. As you can see there are already some class specific folders here.Take your pick from the Warrior, Rogue or Priest folder instead if you are playing one of these classes.

Now that you're set up you can start up WoW and log in. Make sure Out of Date addons are enabled in the addon screen. Once you're in-game, you will have to set up some profiles.



Setting up the profiles


  • /bartender -> Default.
    OR select the WarriorPaging profile if you're a warrior.
  • /pitbull -> Default.
  • /sldatatext -> Default profile.
  • /omen -> Default.
  • /msbt -> Tank profile.
  • /bigwigs -> Default.
  • /kgpanels -> Default.
  • /quartz -> Default.

Reload your UI after all this is done.

SatrinaBuffFrames
Type "/sbf options" and navigate to the Profile panel. The Default profile is used as a base profile, containing the frame placement and generic buff filtering. You should copy this profile to a new profile whenever you log a new character. You can then filter out class specific buffs/debuffs for your new class in the SBF3(own buffs) and SBF4(own debuffs) frames. These buffs and debuffs will be shown left and respectively right above your own health bar as can be seen in the first screenshot.
There are already 2 fully working profiles in this package.
  • Warrior profile
  • Priest profile

You won't have to copy the Default profile if you use any of the above.


Reload your UI after all this is done.



Bartender setup
On the screenshot you see only 1 action bar. The UI holds a lot more however. All of these are either hidden or on fadeout.

Use /coolline spellname to filter in/out specific abilities from the cooldown bar beneath your player frame. It is caps sensitive. Example: "/coolline Shield Slam" Shield Slam's cooldown will now no longer be tracked on the CoolLine bar.



Nameplate Threat Coloring
There are 4 healthbar colors regarding the nameplates for enemy mobs.
  • Red: No aggro
  • Blue: Close to pulling aggro
  • Yellow: Close to losing aggro
  • Green: Aggro + solid threat



Boss Mods
There are 2 BossMods included in this package. BigWigs is default and enabled for everyone. It's also the bars you can see in the screenshots.

DBM takes care of all the PVP and 5-man dungeon timers.



Credit for some of the inspiration for this UI goes to OOMM who is the one who came up with the awesome idea to make the unit frame backgrounds transparent. You're a legend! :-)

- Replacement of the tooltip - it will no longer obstruct UI windows.
- Updates to the nameplates. Better castbar + castbar icon and a better look overall.
- Slight finetune of the two stat bars in both bottom corners.

Version 1.2
- Reduced overall memory usage through Aloft

Sexy as hell UI, I'm diggin it. The memory usage is ridiculously frightening though.

Anyways, nice layout and style, added to my favorites.

Beautiful looking UI - will be trying it out as soon as the EU servers are up. Don't worry about memory usage, minimalism has become popular but as long as you're not running completely out-dated hardware it will make nary a difference.

You're right about the memory usage, it is indeed quite high. It shouldn't make a noticeable impact on modern day computers though. I'll see if I can reduce it somewhat when I have time these next few days!

-----
Edit:

I had a look at some of the addon's and managed to shave off some MB's by disabling Aloft's data saving options. The memory usage is now at a stable 20 MB. I'll get a chance to raid-test the changes tonight. Updated download is awaiting approval.

I didn't mean to seem like I was putting your UI down, it really is sweet. I totally agree that today's computers shouldn't have any noticeable impact with the amount of memory that is being used.

There are just a lot of alternatives out there that do what some of your addons already do, and they do it will less of an impact. I used to LOVE Aloft, I still partially do, but I have moved on to other addons that do the same thing and barely leave an imprint.

I used almost all of the addons in your UI at one point or another almost religiously. They are great addons, I couldn't play the game without some of them. There are alternatives though that can accomplish the same things now, and use quite a bit less on resources.

I still think that your UI is hot, and when I'm feeling frisky I will probably install it. Just keep doing what you do, that's all that matters and others will appreciate you for it.


Edit: You should start using the change log too, that way when people like me see one of their favorites have been updated they can come and check out what's new.

You could perhaps try eQueue (http://www.wowinterface.com/download...ueue.html#info). I think this does what you're looking for, but it's not officially updated for 4.0.1 yet. It may still work though

First of all I think its an excellent UI, awesome looking and very functional with lots of work put into it.

I've been playing with the UI some time already, customized it a bit and adapted to 1920x1080 resolution (tbh it works perfectly out of the box with the UI scale enabled).

Default Blizzard UI elements can be moved with MoveAnything (Dungeon Finder window, new Dungeon Difficulty icon).

For easy installation and profile switching it is convenient to use Reflux (switch and snapshot commands).

Both compatible with 4.0.1

Keep up the awesome work!

Getting a new monitor tomorrow. Expect a more polished update for 1680x1050 and 1920x1080 resolutions!

Moveanything included, which amongst other things fixes the Dungeon queue problem Yei has had.

Edit: postphoned till monday.

The new update is now pending! I've been very busy these last few weeks with setting up a raiding team for Cataclysm, so apologies for the major delay.

The UI now fully supports both 1920x1080 and 1680x1050 resolutions.

For some other minor tweaks see the change log. Enjoy!
