FictionalUI  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 3.3

FictionalUI
1600X900wide
UPDATED for patch 5.2!
NOTES for 5.2: More screenshots will be added soon.

After playing WoW for 7+ years and being addicted to UI compilations, I finally broke down and made my own from scratch. This is simply many addons that I've used over the years and all I did was tie them in together to make a nice clean layout mainly for a raiding healer setup. Don't fret though! If you are not a healer or a raider, this setup works fine for anyone.

Setup:
1. Back up your WTF, Interface and Font folders and then delete them from WoW directory folder.
2. Unzip FictionalUI in your WoW directory.
3. Rename these folders in the WTF folder -
* ACCOUNT NAME replace with your account name (example: Katie86)
* SERVER NAME replace with the server you are playing (example: Sargeras)
* Priest, Paladin, ect, choose your healer class and rename it to your characters name corresponding to that class (example: Fiction is my priest) If you dont have one of the healer classes, scroll down to Non-Healer Notes.
FOR THIS COMPILATION TO WORK YOU MUST DO THIS STEP:
Log into your account, log onto your character, once in-game hit the enter button and type /reflux switch ficui - remember, it's case sensitive.
If any addon doesn't seem to load, type the appropriate /command for the addon and check for profile "fictionalui", "ficui", "fiction" or the class type you are playing.

IMPORTANT: I no longer include Clique or Weak Auras with my compilation as it has caused a lot of confusion in the past. I still HIGHLY recommend both of these addons for any healer. I feel they are must-haves for anyone with healing abilities.

Healers Notes: Your grid should be set up correctly per class if you followed my directions. But just to make sure, once your screen has reloaded after doing the last step above, type /grid, go to the Profiles tab and make sure your respective class is being used as the profile name. Example: Shamans, make sure your profile is set to "shaman", ect.

Non-Healers Notes: if you are not a healer and just like this compilation - choose the Priest folder, and rename it to your characters name. I have added in a profile in Grid just for you guys as well. Its smaller and uses less information. Go into the Grid profiles and choose "non-healer". Also, feel free to move the Grid frame itself where ever you would like. It doesnt have to stay in the middle left of the screen.

Power Auras Notes: Each of the healers(minus Monk) have their own unique Power Auras layout tailored specifically to them. If you are not a healer or not that class, all you have to do is either delete the Power Auras saved variables for advanced users or just type /powa in game and delete the auras yourself.

High-Res Notes: You'll have to adjust the chat boxes by right clicking on them. If you would like to resize the panels, type /kgpanels config, and open the waterfall menu titled Active Panels. The panel names are literal, so it shouldnt be hard for anyone to find the one you want to adjust. You can unlock and move any of them them by highlighting the desired panel name in the waterfall menu and then unchecking the "lock" option to the right.
You'll also have to move the map which will be easy, type /chinchilla and uncheck the "lock" box and move it to where ever youd like it.
Lastly you will move the Skada windows the same way using the slash command /skada config.
REMINDER: make sure you "lock" everything again once you are done!

MiirgUI - skin for wow panels
Bagnon - personal and bank inventory
Bartender4 - action bar addon, /bar

Another thanks to you my good madame *bow*
I have uninstalled power aura's and i also could find the nameplate option in the blizzard interface.

I really love the UI and that is so highley customisable. Most UI's ive tried are static, and hard to get to my own taste.

Edit: for PoM i know to stack it up, but on normal trash packs its not necesarry, and most of the time the boss is down before i can put on 3 of them.

Here's a screenshot:

Also sometimes i get a blue half circle around me wich i havnt had before. Where do i have to look to turn off these options? (i already have turned of the blizzards one)

Also i always have ctrl-v on, so i can see where evryone is standing, where adds are walking ets. But now all the red and blue bars are overlapping and not stacking. I want to know how far/fast an add/adds takes till it dies. (So i can see how im gonna spend my mana.) Becouse they are overlapping its hard to see how far they are, and on my hunter to target one. Is there an option to change this?
The icons you are seeing on your screen are Power Auras. The reason you see PoM so often on your priest is bc by using it on CD you are getting more healing throughput, you shouldnt wait for it to bounce 5 times; so I built the Aura to do just that, tell me when its ready to use.
If you dont want to see any of the auras I have made for the specific healer classes, type /powa when on your character and edit the auras I have made to your hearts content.
Keep in mind, youll have to be on that character to edit the auras specific to that class. Like, you cant edit your shamans Power Auras if you are on your priest.

As far as the Name Plates overlapping, thats a toughy. I dont use name plates so I will do some digging and see if I can find that option. Im going to take a guess that they are in the Blizzard Interface options somewhere if you want to take a look at it too.

Naukkis, Im sorry you had a few bumps. As far as "flawless" all of those things you listed are things that can be edited to your own liking with the addons in this package. Im guessing the keybindings arent working because of the addon called Clique. Not being able to target people by clicking on them through Grid is also the addon Clique. If you are not a healer, then that addon is something you should remove entirely as it uses your mouse buttons for spells/actions.
As far as it not saving your key bindings, I wonder if you had the check box marked to save bindings across all your toons. That option is in Bartender, and the default Blizzard key mapping. I cant think of any other reason for it not saving, that is not something on my end or a flaw with any of the addons in this compilation.

If you decide to come back to my compilation please let me know and I will walk you through the things you didnt like, they are very simple fixes.
P.S. Ty for posting a picture though, it looks great

Kiwi, np at all! If I had made it to these posts sooner I would have suggested that to you as well. Glad you found it yourself, that shows smarts!
As for the tooltip, that addon is called Tip Top, and to open the menu just type /tip. Once in the menu, the options to move the tooltip is called Anchor. Let me know if you need anything else.

Ok, so here's a few things i've found being a nuisance, on my paladin when i click people in grid, it doesn't target them, also it doesn't save my keybinds so i need to bind actionbars and all the general keybinds as in achievement frame, guild etc.

Edit: Seems to be ctrl+mouse1 to choose the person.. which is dumb, no clue where to change it.

Too many flaws for my taste going back to the previous one, which i found flawless.

Hi, i really LOVE the UI you uploaded.
I had to tweak a bit to get evrything in the right place(1920x1080), and theres only one small thing i have to figure out yet. (move the box that apears when you hover over someone/something as i dont really like the place its on)

Only i have one problem, when i want to raid with the guild we have to have dbm installed. I find it a very usefull addon, but since i installed your UI its not working anymore. I tried to delete it in curse and reinstall it but that didnt work. Also it didnt work to do it manualy.

When i type /dbm in the chat i get the standard "type '/help' for more commands" as an responce as if it isnt installed. It also doesnt show up in my addons list under interface.

I hope you can help me with that, becouse i would hate it to de-install your UI just to let dbm work again.

Edit: Im sorry, im not really the smartest hahaha.
I didnt know there was an adon menu in the charcter selection screen untill i read it elsewere on this forum.
It was disabled, and now its working again, sorry for the trouble

I'll try to post some sort of image after.
Edit: Picture added.


Thanks, developer.

P.S, Doesn't seem to work on Recruit a friend account, for some reason.

She* actually :P
and apologies to everyone for any confusions with the profile switching. I thought I had updated the profile name through reflux correctly with the last update. I have actually been having some complications with reflux on my end, that may be part of the problem.
Will update again this week and hopefully the correct /reflux commands will work.

I don't think the addon reflux is there maybe that is why I'm getting an error message or maybe that's the root of the problem. I don't know I will send you candies if you help me out

First off. I've been using your UI for many months now and I love it.

Now, I was just doing an annual update on the package, and when I went to /reflux switch it, it wasn't working with the new one you posted. So I did some digging and noticed that most addons have a fiction profile, but they wouldn't switch to the proper style, unless I used riotui profile, one of your previous package names. So I eventually just did /reflux switch riotui and it went to where it should be. Just thought you should know. =]

Like with him, this issue has me stumped. You are the 2nd person to report this out of the 13k that have tried or are using this package.
He reinstalled WoW and it worked for him. I know thats not what you want to hear, but thats all i got.

Give me a day or so, I will dig around and see if I cant get a better answer for you. Also I will re-upload the package tonight, hopefully its just a goofed file which will get fixed by doing this.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
