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.

  • Removed Minimap zoom buttons and replaced with mouse wheel scrolling

  • Low Health Warnings
  • Interrupt Announcements

PvP

  • 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

Looks Good

This looks exactly how I setup Bartender for my UI. Only thing is the Micro Menu I have at top in the center. Don't see that in your screenshots so just wondering where yours is set and how to access it?

I personally don't use the Micro Menu as I just use the various keybinds. I may add it on mouse over in the bottom right.

Best bet would be adding it to the minimap via right click.

How do I remove the class icon? I've changed portraits to class icons instead so it's redundant now.

Really like the UI. Been looking for a good defaultish UI and I think I'll be sticking with this one for a while.

New build 004 pending approval. You should then be able to easily toggle it on or off by changing Line 4 to false.
