FictionalUI  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.3
by: Eolian [More]

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!


Main Addon List and /Commands:
MiirgUI - skin for wow panels
Bagnon - personal and bank inventory
Bartender4 - action bar addon, /bar
Chatter - chat mod, /chatter

Hey there!

First and foremost I wanted to say this is probably one of the smoothest, cleanest, best looking compilations I've ever tried out. I've been using it for about a week now and it's amaaaaaaazing! I just had a couple questions for you.

1. Is there any addon that affects the quest tracker within this set? Or is it just the fonts that are affected?
2. Is there an easy to way to go about updating between version without adjusting settings all over again? I enjoy the addon package you've put together, but I play at a different resolution and UI scale, so I had to modify a few settings and I want to be able to update going forward without modifying it all over again.
3. Do you plan on sticking with SBF or do you plan to use something else, since SBF doesn't allow right clicking buffs off?

sorry I took so long to respond.

1. no addon for the quest tracker per say. however the map addon, chinchilla, allows for moving the quest/achievement tracking around.
2. you can make your own Reflux profiles. its very easy to use, actually. heres the instructions for that addon so you can save your own settings.
http://www.wowinterface.com/download...11-Reflux.html
3. I do not plan on changing from SBF because of the amount of things I can do with that addon. Unless I'm mistaken(happens sometimes!) I believe all of the buff addons have that same issue. Its a blizzard coding problem, not an addon coding.

More detail on #3 - I can see how that is a tricky problem for some classes(tanks) and some scenarios(clicking off BoP or Levitate, ect). I really dont know a way around this issue, unless any of you know of a fix for it, or an addon essentially just like SBF where you can separate and organize buffs/debuffs exactly the way you want and in as many sections/groups as you want.
I have been keeping an eye out on SBF for updates in hopes the author has found a way, but no luck as of yet.
Its not a huge bother to me personally, because I dont use that function enough, but I do understand many people need it.

Oh and ty very much for the kudos, much appreciated! Im glad you and others really like it!

Sorry for the late response! I'm sure youve figured it out by now...
But just incase, the option you are looking for is "Edit Box". That will move the box that you type in to anywhere you want to put it.

Thnx again for the kuddos guys!

4.2

DreamingUI is updated for 4.2!

Some addons may not be updated because I am not the author of those, but I have updating everything that I can and uploaded it for everyone.

Like in 4.1, one to two addons may take a couple of days for the author or an authors friend to update the addon, so be patient!
Check in consistantly to these comments as I will be listing what is updated and what isnt on doomsday(lol).

Thanks again ladies and gentlemen for using and loving my UI.

Miks - not updated, doesnt work. It is in the files, but just disable it on your addons list before logging into your character.
Grid - not updated, but works.

As far as the latest update for firelands goes...is it necessary to download the update or can we just update the addons manually through curse?

Nevermind...pretty sure I just answered this question myself when I went up to a target dummy and started attacking.

Cripson:
The shield means that for some reason your power auras is telling you that you dont have Inner Fire or Inner Will on... obviously priest abilities. Go into power auras (type "/powa" in game) and disable that aura.
For the pets, go into grid (type "/grid" in game), go to the Layouts tab, click on the Party Layout drop down box and select "Group by 5"

Hope that fixes things!


Techtyan:
Nope you certainly dont have to download my updated version, however I personally have updated my UI in other areas and made things a bit smoother with changes here and there that you wont get unless you download the new version. Possibly meaningless to some of you, but I like the changes I made, you might too.
Plus its easier imo bc some of my addons are not on Curse, so you wont get them updated with the Curse auto updater.

Enjoy fellas!

RealID Whispers

Hey Dreaming, thanks for putting together such a sweet UI. I just installed it a little while ago and don't really have any complaints except that I cannot see any RealID whispers (outgoing or incoming). I have made sure all chat settings should be able to receive these, but I just can't figure it out.

Also, is there a way to relocate the grid frame? Is it just like regular grid that I can drag? I haven't been in a raid or joined a BG to try it out, and was just wondering. I'll be in one tonight, but I'm a tank so I'd like to have that worked out before then. If not, I'll just deal with it until I get a reply.

Thanks again!

Im glad you asked about the realID whispers because I'm having that same problem too. I disabled Chatter and I could see realID just fine. I just now went through everything in Chatter to double check and like you, everything is where it should be. I think it's just Chatter addon that broke since 4.2.
I'm going to go get Prat and see how that works.

As for Grid, yup its just the regular ol' Grid
It's just my settings and preferences. By unlocking it you can move it anywhere.

P.S. I'll edit this once I've checked out Prat.

EDIT: Using a different mod or non at all for chat seems to fix the issue. I recommend using Prat.
Here is the link: http://www.wowinterface.com/download...3-Prat3.0.html
Prat works just like chatter, so any of you familiar with Chatter will fall right into it easily. Also anyone that doesnt explore mods too much shouldnt have a hard time using Prat, its very user friendly.

Sorry for the troubles if anyone else has had the realID issue.

grid profiles

do you have any set grid profiles that you use (like the one bati has setup). I see different profiles and was wondering if you had them already premade for each healing class and what not. Ty for awesome UI

yes i do

dreamingui is the default one, mostly worked for a priest with emphasis on magic dispells.
uncia is the druid profile with specifics on druid hots.
psalms is the paladin profile with a timer for beacon and a tracker for the paladin holy mastery.
eolian is the shaman profile with emphasis on riptide and shaman dispells.

Thanks for the kudos
