Improved Blizzard UI  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.9.0
by: kaytotes [More]

Known issues can be tracked / submitted HERE.

Improved Blizzard UI is an attempt to improve the default Blizzard interface. This has been customized to how I personally like my UI set up. There is some very basic configuration in game but things like positioning and scale of items still needs modifying directly in the LUA.

Only 1920x1080 and 2560x1440 are supported / tested out of the box so some other resolutions may need tweaks.

Localized for enGB / enUS / deDE (ben2k1690) / ptBr (cyberdisarray) / ruRU (A few strings missing). See end of page for information if you would like to help localise.

Setup

  • Install ImprovedBlizzardUI like any other addon.
  • Ensure that the UI Scale option under System / Advanced is unchecked for correct scaling.



Features

  • Slightly adjusted position and scale of the Minimap
  • Removed Minimap zoom buttons and replaced with mouse wheel scrolling
  • Added Player co-ordinates to the Minimap

Combat

  • Low Health Warnings
  • Interrupt Announcements

PvP
  • Killing Blow Indicator
  • PvP Kill Feed
  • Auto-Hiding Quest Tracker
  • Leave Queue button hidden on the PvP Queue popup

Action Bars
  • Action Bars (Main, Left, Right, Stance, Pet) minified and styled.
  • Range / Out of Mana colours on all icons
  • Replaced the Micro Menu with a Minimap Dropdown (On Right Click)
  • Stripped unneccesary textures

Chat
  • Minified numerous Blizzard strings (Loot Gained, Chat Channels etc)
  • Replaced chat Font
  • Removed chat tab backgrounds
  • Removed some chat buttons
  • Increased the font size range

Miscellaneous
  • Automatically repairs damaged equipment utilising the Guild Bank where possible.
  • Automatically sells grey quality loot when at an appropriate vendor.

Started disabling addons one by one and the only one where it happens is with this one enabled.

Edit: only tested in hunter and druid class halls.
It's definitely disabled intentionally. I'll make this a toggle at the weekend.

Edit: For now you could just remove this function call

I'll log this on github but won't be a very high priority. So far as I can tell this only appears like that between 100 - 110 and fixes at cap.

I concur. I've investigated this today and can't replicate the issue. Perhaps you're using an older build from before I fixed this?
I'm using the Pre-Patch-Build, is it too old?
Definitely. Update to the current release on this page.

I know this addon currently doesn't change the chat bubbles font in any way but you may be able to find another small addon that does this for you.

I've added a toggle for bringing back the default chat scroll buttons under the chat config.

This is already in, under "Combat" untick "Hide Portrait Spam".

Great job! Would it be possible to change chat bubbles font too? Beacuse it does not display special characters too. (and I would like to know whats the font name so I can adjust other addons to chat).
Hovering over artifact power bar works only while hovering only at the top part of bar - not a big deal at least it is showing Thanks again for good work

EDIT: Suggestion - would it be possible to add a button which can move chat to the newest messages while scrolling over old ones as default chat has? ty

So far as I'm aware this is due to the blizzard font not supporting those characters unless you're from that region. I remember having the same issue with the stock ui a long time ago though unsure if that changed at any point.
Thats the reason why I am writting here - stock blizzard chat support these character, it looks like only font you are using in chat is not supporting them. probably option to change chat font would solve this problem.
found another problem- area marked as red rectangle is totally unclickable. Screen - http://imgur.com/a/ipS2M
I am running at 1920x1080
I should be able to find some time to look into this over the weekend. Thanks for the report.
Hey, I just found probably more bugs so I hope I can report them here and wanted to ask if you looked into previously written ones

1) I dont know if this is problem only on my side, but on 110 I cant see ho much artifact power I have earned while hovering over bar at the top of actionbars while hovering over reputation bar works correctly.
Thank you for great support!
