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

Hmm... good question.

As for a 3.3.5 version of my UI, I did not save them according to the WoW version, only to my own. Try the first or second UI version in my Library, I know it is at least a 3.something WoW version.

Unfortunately I think you have me stumped on the 2nd part of your question, I have no idea. I would "think" it would work to replace files, but I just am not sure.
Give it a try and see what happens. Just be sure to back up your UI before you mess with it.

Cheers for uploader. (ps. thanks for answering to my previous questions.)

you have default raid frames open AND grid
/cringe
(personal pet peve! argh! lol)


However I'm happy to see people doing their own things with my UI. Thats after all, how I started. Thanks for the kudos.

also, type /bf, click "addons" on the panel to the left side, click "raven", on the drop down box and select the option "stylo_bonus" and click ok.

That will make the border of your buffs to match everything else. If you want it to of course! <3

I've never had this problem before yesterday (as prior to downloading the update, I renamed the WTF folder to WTF_DreamingUI). Do you have any insight?

Thanks!
Try deleting all the contents of the NEW dreamingUI, and once that folder is empty paste in all your old files. That should do the trick.

My bestie had this happen to her a couple weeks ago downloading this as well, she had Windows 7 and we discovered it was that operation system that wouldnt let her delete it.

If that doesnt work, get back to me.

Very nice UI overall, very clean and smooth.

Im running 1920x1080 and thinks work great, just 3 tiny issues id like to ask you about.

What is the command for the AI art and how can i make the date next to the map stop moving around, (the lock doesn't appear to have an effect on that). And how do i config the grid, i cant see it even though its enabled.

Thanks once more and hopefully i'll get an answer. (PS: I shall post a picture once i'm done tweaking it.)
Grid instruction are on the front page, but for short the slash command is /grid
It's probably not showing because I dont have it visible when solo. It should show up when in a party or raid.

I do not believe there is a command for AI Art, but you could look it up here on wow interface. But honestly I really dont know what that could be. I dont have anything like that near my map. Did you check the mini-map itself and its options? Right click the map or type /chinchilla.

Also, slightly embarrassing and Im glad you brought it up so I can update it, but Im not using AI Art anymore, I went with someone elses and I forgot the name of it, lol. >.<
I will look it up after my raid this evening, update it on the front page and edit it here to tell you what it is.

I Hope rly you can do something

im on de_DE (EU) Client and cant find the options to load your profile in STUF
First off, did you follow the instructions on my front page involving Reflux?
If yes, send me a screenshot please.
If no, go read it and follow them step by step.

Secondly, what do you mean, "not all the bars are shown"? Because several of them are meant to be hidden bars so they appear only when you mouse over them.

Also, I have updated my UI to not have portraits, so that is how it should be. If you want portraits, type /stuf, go to Player, go to Portrait, uncheck the options labeled "Disabled". Do the same for Target.
You may have to adjust the frames to the left or right to line up nicely.

Skada you might have to adjust manually as well. Have no fear its also a click away.

Having troubles

First and foremost, I love this ui
But...
I really enjoy this mod by tekkub too, Panda but it won't work with this UI. I've installed it three times and every time i log in, look at the add on list and it's not listed. I was hoping you could help me out with this because I really enjoy this UI but I also really enjoy this mod.

Thanks
Dread

Relia - what is making that happen is an addon I use for healing called Clique. Open you spell book, there will be a new tab underneath your Guild Spells, thats where you can control the Clique addon.

CosmicB - I use a panel addon thats called KGPanels, it allows me to do pretty much anything with the background. The "boxes" you see in my UI on the bottom of the screen that separate all of my spells and stuff, that is KGPanels. I have colored them so they are a nice shaded grey that is slightly transparent. Very neutral for any class and style.
