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!

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

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.
well the LUA error comes up when i try to open the options lol, i remade all the stuff with raven its a temporary fix, but ill try to figure something out

Amazing UI btw

Try turning Lua display off and then trying the things i suggested.

and thnx


Edit: I've been testing out Raven. Ill tweak with it for the week, if I really like it(which I think I will) I will upload an update for my UI with it attached including my settings for it. I was planning on an update this week anyway, so this is a nice booster for me to get it completed!

Already ahead of you sir! The post below yours says that I am replacing SBF with Raven, I'm pretty excited about it actually.
Havent tried out Aurora yet to see which one works smoother, thats on my to-do list this week

I find that interesting as I have a 6 year old computer with one upgrade to a semi-decent video card 2 years ago and I have 50+ FPS in Stormwind with thousands of people running around and 20ish FPS in a 25man Firelands raid with all video settings on "Good" or "High".

Its not my UI thats causing you to go to zero FPS. Im wondering if you have an addon thats broken and completely disturbing your game. Check your .lua errors, if you have a broken addon it can very easily stop your game completely.

I'm only using your addons from the download, nothing more,nothing less.
It was temporaley better for like 2 hours but then it brokes down to 9-12 FPS again.
But i will check the Lua errors later and will edit it here.

greetings

It prolly copied my Clique profile over, since I'm a healer I use right and left click to heal with different abilities.
Try alt+right click and alt+left click.
If you are not a healer or dont want it bound like that, open Clique and rebind it. You can find Clique when you open up your spell book, it will be a new tab under your Guild Spells.

Hey there, I have been trying to find a UI to work for me... I'm a noob to this as well, so not to sure on what I am doing exactly, I am trying to follow your instructions but I don't see all of the folders you are mentioning, not sure of it is because I use an iMac? Also, when I download your package it doesn't let me open it, says "Safari can't open the file "DreamingUI 3.rar" because no available application can open it."

I just made the switch from ElvUI and I must say I'm really liking this ui. I did have to ditch Grid for VuhDo but that's just personal preference lol. Anyway, I had a couple questions the first being: which AddOn is responsible for the nameplates. I like the looks of them but would like to display certain debuffs on top of them. (It might already do this I haven't messed around with it too much) The next question is about DBM which is skinned for this UI in the screen shots. However DBM doesn't appear to be included in this compilation. I was wondering if there is anyway for it to be included in a future release or something. It would also be great if we could get the AddOn "Capping" skinned for us PvPers.

This UI is great though and I can tell you put ALOT of work into it and I appreciate that. Keep up the good work.

I, too, switched from Grid to VuhDo. I think it should be replaced. (: I really love this UI and it fits my 1600x900 perfectly!

Im very sorry about the delay for replies I started working again with school and things in my guild have gotten hectic. I will reply to your questions shortly.

P.S. I tried Vuhdoo for a week and hated it. It will not be added in my compilation ever.

Replies:

CosmicB - turn your .lua errors off in your interface>help options and you wont see that anymore. Thats been there for like a year now, its nothing to worry about, Grid still works fine.
And I'm not really sure what you mean by your "dark" comment. If you could be more specific I could give you an answer.

Megabytes - Thanks for the thumbs up! Glad you like it.

Murdoc - I believe thats Tidy Plates although I have removed them on my end and no longer use it.
I have DBM looking like that because I edited the default settings which anyone can do by typing /dbm. Reflux for some reason will not save my personalized DBM settings. You will have to do that yourself, but thankfully its easy and should only take you a couple of mins
I will take a look at "capping" this weekend and see what I can do.
Also, thanks for the kudos! I had a friend that was coding this UI into a TukUI just like Elv's is, but his harddrive fried halfway through the work

Eply - you need a program that "unzips" packed folders like what you downloaded from this website. I use something called Winrar, you can find it on Downloads.com for free. Install that and start my steps again, you should be good to go
