Grid  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.0.3.1710
by: Phanx, Greltok, Pastamancer

Grid is a compact and highly configurable party/raid unit frame addon.

The compact grid of unit frames lets you select a group member quickly, while keeping a good overview of the whole group. It shows as much information as possible without overloading you. It allows you to customize what information you see, and how you see it. It works in both party and raid groups, and supports pets and vehicles.

Please do not use the Bug/Feature buttons to the right, or send me PMs to ask for help, report problems, or request features. Use the links below instead!

Want more features? The Grid core tries to include only features which are generally useful for all classes and roles, but makes it easy to add new features with a simple plugin API for developers. Over 75 third-party plugins are already available!

Type “/grid” for options, or right-click the minimap button, DataBroker launcher, or Grid frame tab.

IMPORTANT: If you did not download Grid from this page, do not post on this page about any problems you encounter with it. Copies of Grid obtained from anywhere other than the official download pages on WoWInterface and WowAce/Curse, or through the Curse Client or Minion, may be outdated or modified, and are not supported at all.
Found a bug?
Please submit a bug report to let us know about the problem so we can fix it!
Problem with a plugin?
Contact the plugin’s author for help. The Grid team cannot provide support for third-party plugins.
Have a suggestion?
Feel free to tell us about your idea, but please make sure there isn’t already a plugin that adds the feature you’re looking for first!

Language Support
Grid is compatible with all World of Warcraft localizations. It is currently translated into English, Deutsch, Español, Français, Italiano, Português, Русский, 한국어, 简体中文, and 繁體中文.

To add or update translations for any language, enter them on the WowAce project page. New and updated translations will be automatically included in the next version of Grid!

HINT: The WowAce interface for adding translations is quite cumbersome. To make the process easier, you can use the Export function on WowAce, copy the exported data into your text editor, fill in your translations, and then paste them back into WowAce using the Import function.
Credits
Grid was originally conceived and written by Maia and Pastamancer in late 2006. Phanx has been the primary developer since late 2009. Jerry wrote the original pet support code. Mikk designed the icon. jlam added some advanced options for auras. Greltok has helped a lot with bugfixing. Finally, lots of people have contributed translations!

Version 6.0.3.1710
  • Temporary fix for raid difficulty detection: LFR, Normal, and Heroic will use your chosen "Flexible Raid" layout, and Mythic will use your "25 Player Raid" layout. In the near future, all built-in layouts will automatically adjust their size for your current raid, and there will only be one "Raid" layout setting.
  • Fixed an issue with right-click bindings in Clique (ticket #747)
  • Fixed the Mouseover status not triggering when "Show Tooltip" was set to "Never" (ticket #770)
  • Fixed another issue with status counts (eg. aura stacks) (ticket #768)

What do you mean? There is always a frame for yourself shown in Grid, unless you are using some third-party code (such as a plugin) that intentionally disables this functionality. If you want your name shown separately somewhere else, your post didn't explain it very well. Maybe you could post a screenshot?

I am annoyed over that you can only show one debuff icon. Am I supposed to manually import all the debuffs different bosses do such as Incinerate Flesh, Mark of the fallen champion etc?

The whole point of Grid is to show information as concisely as possible; showing an icon for every debuff on a unit is not consistent with that goal. I can't think of any situation where you need to see more than three pieces of information about a unit's debuffs:
  1. Does this unit have a debuff I can dispel? The actual debuff doesn't matter, only what type of debuff it is, so you don't need an icon, just a colored square or border.
  2. Does this unit have a debuff that prevents me from casting certain spells on them? For example, a priest needs to know who has Weakened Soul, and a paladin needs to know who has Forbearance. Since no class has more than one such debuff, you don't need an icon for this either; a red square or border is sufficient.
  3. Does this unit have a debuff specific to this encounter or instance, that I can respond to? I've successfully tanked, healed, and/or damaged every raid encounter currently in the game, and can't think of a single boss encounter where you need to see more than one "raid debuff" at a time.
As for individiaul "raid debuffs", you can either manually add the specific ones your class cares about — eg. if you're playing a rogue, you have nothing to do in response to someone else having Mark of the Fallen Champion, so you don't need to see it; while if you're playing a priest, you don't need to see an icon for Fiery Combustion, since it'll already show up on your "dispellable debuff" indicator — or you can install the GridStatusRaidDebuff plugin to get a precompilied list of every raid encounter debuff in the game.

There isn't, but Grid will be updated for Cataclysm (eg. not using Ace2 anymore) before it's released.

There will probably not be a release version ready to go much before the release of Cataclysm, so don't hold your breath for Grid on the beta servers.

Not to worried about getting this on the beta, especially since as of the moment beta is pretty much broken for a lot of stuff.

Definately glad to hear that it will be updated for Cataclysm though as this is a must have addon for my healers otherwise I'm lost. Also can't wait to see what its like since your removing Ace2, I'm guessing your going to replace it with Ace3.

Keep up the great work!!

Functionally, you'll see little to no difference. There will be a real GUI for configuration, but that's about it.

Awesome, can't wait. The main thing that I don't like about Grid2 is that it doesn't use profiles but instead uses Layers that always seem to screw up on me, also i like to have Grid in two separate positions one for my heals and one for dps/tank. So as long as I can still set up my Heals profile and my dps/tank profile I'll be all good.

So you are saying there will be a release for the 4.0.1 live patch?

You need an SVN client, such as TortoiseSVN. If you're not familiar with SVN, you should probably just wait for a more stable version to be made available through normal methods (eg. zip downloads) on the download pages. There's still quite a bit that's broken/unstable, as well as several bugs on Blizzard's end that are interfering with functionality at the moment.
