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!


Main Addon List and /Commands:
MiirgUI - skin for wow panels
Bagnon - personal and bank inventory
Bartender4 - action bar addon, /bar
Chatter - chat mod, /chatter
Chinchilla - map, /chinchilla
Grid(manabars, cornericons, sideicons) - /grid
KG Panels - support addon for graphic layout, /kgpanels config
Masque - action button skinner, /masque
Mik's Scrolling Combat Text - /msbt
Reflux - makes profile switching easy, /reflux
Raven - buff, debuffs, hots/dots and cooldown timers, /raven
Skada - damage, healing and threat meter, /skada config
SL Data Text - friendly and simple information texts, /sldt

eolian is shaman, as i said.
dreamingui is the priest one, as i said.
pally is pally.
druid is druid.

also youre grid disapears bc either A: youre not in a group so it doesnt show on solo mode, or B: you need to reload your UI to refresh the changed profile.

Having MAJOR trouble with loading UI

hey man, I'm very anxious to try out your UI it looks amazing, I've tried a lot of them and yours is exactly what I've been looking for. problem is I can't get it to load correctly no matter what I try, and I followed the instructions completely. here are the 3 errors I'm getting currently:







I don't know what's wrong. my resolution is at 1680x1050 btw. I unchecked the Chatter add-on cause I read that was causing problems currently, I did the /reflux switch dreamingui command, made sure all add-on presets had dreamingui selected and I don't have ANY other add-ons loaded except the ones included with DreamingUI. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Re: Having MAJOR trouble with loading UI

Well the first Lua error is just grid. nothing to worry about there, it's been like that for forever.

The 2nd one is tidy plates, I dont remember adding that into my oackage but i might have missed it. Tidy Plates isnt working right now as far as I know or at least my version didnt work. Disable that, I dont even use it anymore.

The 3rd picture I cant read the Lua error, can you copy paste it?


From what it looks like until i see the 3rd error, your lua errors are unrelated.

The only thing I can think of is that since your resolution is much bigger then mine that could be why it doesnt look right. Try loading it on my res and see if thats the case and let me know

First off. Great compilation. Like it a lot. I do however think the cast bars for the you and your target are a bit too small and obscurely placed. Also I'm having trouble with what I think is a bug with SBFrames. Whenever I cast riptide on someone with my shaman a timer bar comes up in the middle of the screen on top of my char.

I think he's talking about the buttons in the login-screen.

you can always change the cast bars size, shape, placement and color. thats the great thing about compilations, you can edit anything to your liking. the directions on opening and editing the cast bar addon are on my front page, i guess you missed those :P

as for SBF, you didnt really explain enough for me to go off of: what shaman timer bar? is it another addon? if so, what is making you think its SBF? SBF only shows buffs/debuffs on you, it does not track hots on other people.

That was my only thought as well, but until it is made clearer, I will not be assuming anything.

Found out what it was. An addon called hotcandy was apparently included in your comp. An addon which tracks HOTS and such.

Hey! Love the UI, great job!

Anyhow, I've faced quite a small but annoying problem.

If u see my screenshot here, the soulshards are abit off and I don't know where to move them.

You got any ideas?

I've never seen anything like that.
Try deleting the two SBF folders in your Interface > Addons main folders and reinstalling it separately from the wowinterface link here.

If that still doesnt work, type /sbf options andcheck on the first page to see if anything is checked.
There are two sections with two check boxes:

The first segment is Show Buffs & Show Debuffs - for all the buff frames make sure Show Buffs is checked, and for all the debuff frames make sure Show Debuffs is checked.

The next segment is Black and White listing. Those options shouldnt have changed from my settings unless youve gone through them and played around. If that is the case youll either have to reinstall my UI or I will have to send you a PM with all my settings :P

Let me know if either of those ideas worked. If not Ill see what else I can come up with.
