VanUI *widescreen* 1920x1080
Version: 1.5.2
by: Vandana [More]




v1.5.2
by Vandana (Hellfire-EU)






The interface has been designed for 1920x1080 resolution. You will need to make some adjustments if you play in a different resolution.

Credits go to all addon authors. I also took much visual and design inspiration from CaithUI and Aliena's UI.

Any feedback, comments and bug reports will help me making the interface better and will be much appreciated!




INSTALLATION

HEALER (default setup) - VuhDo taking majority of the bottom center area of the screen.
TANK - created for my DK tank, easily adjustable to any other tank class, IceHUD and Omen in the center of the screen.
DPS - 1-2 button bars at the bottom, 1-3 button bars on the right, next to Omen, IceHUD.

HOW TO INSTALL:

1. Make a copy of your INTERFACE, WTF and CACHE folders in your WoW installation directory.

2. Delete your INTERFACE, WTF and CACHE folders.

3. Unzip VanUI to your WoW installation directory.

4. Change name of WTF\Account\YOURACCOUNTNAME folder to your WoW account name inside your WoW installation directory.

5. Inside the folder change name of YOURSERVERNAME folder to your server name (eg. Hellfire).

6. Inside the folder change name of YOURCHARACTERNAME folder to your character name.

7. Log in, on the character selection screen enable all addons and make sure out of date addons option is enabled. For healers (or DPS if you don't fancy using it) - disable IceHUD.

8. Enter the game with your character, in chat window type (case sensitive, type exactly as it is shown):
/reflux switch VanUI (HEALER)
/reflux switch VanUItank (TANK)
/reflux switch VanUIdps (DPS)

9. Unlock (right clicking on the channel tab and choosing 'unlock panel') your chat, change the chat windows size - they will automatically adjust to fit in the bottom left panels. I'm using general channel (top window) and guild chat (bottom window). Once you complete the chat setup - lock the panels again.

10. Exit the game completely and restart for fonts (Fontain addon) to work.

HEALER setup complete!


TANK SETUP
and DPS SETUP

11. Right click the female shaman icon next to the minimap (Vuhdo setup). Click profiles and choose NONHEAL.

12. Open Vuhdo setup - Options/Tools/Profiles, choose profiles VanUI 10, 25, 40 and uncheck auto enable for each profile. When prompted on setup exit choose "copy".

13. Type /fx, choose NONHEAL tab on top of the Fortexorcist setup window.

14. (optional - single action bar) Type /kgpanels config, choose Profile tab and choose VanUI profile. Type /bar, choose Profile tab and choose VanUI profile.

Enjoy!



When creating new characters, applying the UI to multiple characters and using different setups it is best to create a new set of profiles before doing any changes by using the following command:
/reflux snapshot Character_name (first letter capitalized)
You can always revert to original settings using VanUI, VanUIdps and VanUItank profiles.


VUHDO
Female shaman icon next to minimap is for VuhDo setup. Feel encouraged to adjust the raid frames to your needs.

To assign your healing spells to mouse clicks, right-click the female shaman icon and choose Options/Spells. The setup is very similar to Healbot.
HoTs and buffs icons: Options/Panels/HoT Icons/HoT Order
Buffwatch: Options/Buffs/Config.

BARTENDER
To enable / disable additional action bars type /bar, choose Bar 3-10 tabs and check / uncheck 'enable' box.


Q&A

Can I keep my keybinds and macros?
Yes. The files relating to keybinds and macros (keybinds-cache.wtf and macros-cache.wtf) are stored in WTF folder. You can copy your backup files to the newly unzipped WTF folder. You'll find general keybinds and macros in your account name folder and character specific keybinds and macros in your character's name folder.

How do I access my calendar?
Shift-click on the clock.

How do I scroll my chat?
With mousewheel. Hold Shift for fast scrolling.

How consuming is the interface on computer power?
I try to pick most efficient addons and on my computer, which is far from high-end, it runs without problems. Total memory size: 20-25MB.

How do I update the interface?
The interface consist of all but one (oGlow) addons which can be updated by Curse Client. Current version of oGlow can be found on WoWInterface.
It is advisable to use Curse for updates unless there has been a new version released.



If you have any further questions regarding install/use of the interface do not hesitate to ask in comments.



Interface in action:

KNOWN ISSUES:
- Satrina Buff Frames - option to dismiss a buff with right click is not implemented yet in current version. Temporary solution: use /cancelaura Buff_name or disable SBF, enter PitBull (/pb) and enable default UI buffs (Modules/Hide Blizzard/uncheck buffs).
- Stance Bar in healer setup overlapping with raid frames (druids). Temporary solution: move the bar to more comfortable position (/bar, uncheck lock).

Changes and fixes in version 1.5.2:
- Simplified installation
- Eclipse bar fixed (needs testing)

Changes and fixes in version 1.5.1:
- Restored missing Bartender profile (NONHEAL).
- New resources (holy power, soul shards) display fixed.
- Combo points display fixed.
- IceHUD diplay fixed.

Changes and fixes in version 1.5:
- General graphical overhaul, panels, borders, tooltips updated.
- Updated Vuhdo layouts, private tanks panel added for target and focus healing, separate profiles for additional pets panel.
- ForteXorcist added for cooldown and spell timers.



Recommended addons non included in the pack:

- AuctionLite (auction house manager)
- BindPad (key bindings addon - great for saving space and displaying as few action bars as possible)
- Power Auras (countless possibilities of custom graphic buff effects)

well i kinda dispute the only way to upgrade is via curse. I run windows 7 ultimate 64 and the client simply won't work..it installs the run time but it does nothing else. I wrote to them and got no reply..

I think you can prolly use monster updater from wow interface which i think is more prefabable if you use ultimate 64 bit..otherwise your going to end up banging your head repeating when it fails to install

I play a mage , hunter ,and priest no tanks for me im scared to get that close =)
I do really like this and want to make it work cuz its so hard to find a good widescreen pack nowadays
thx u again
Soulhunter................
To resize panels type /kgpanels config, expand active panels and change width and height values for all panels (grey border boxes - panel names ending with 'b' are 1-2 pixels wider and higher than black inner boxes). You may also need to change offset values.

Grey boxes sizes:
1920x1080 (1680x1050)

Bartender
550x48 (480x47)

Broker
366x28 (320x27)

Chat 1 & Chat 2
366x92 (320x89)

Rightbig
366x201 (320x195)

Enjoy.

Hey, thanks !Beautycase is a very simple mod taken directly from CaithUI and created by Neal. All it does is providing some borders for in-game buttons.

It's not bad. Not my taste, but it's pretty cool.

Changes and fixes in version 1.0.3
- profiles fixed, now one character folder with added profiles for different roles (see Installation)
- Power Auras: removed to keep the interface lightweight as it was including only some aura setups for classes that the author plays
- some alignment fixes and cosmetic changes

Hi there, been enjoying this UI on my healer, today i gave it ago with my tank.

after downloading and doing a clean install following your instructions to the letter and it appears that the same config is happening for both the tank setup and healer setup.

maybe look at setting up a different Reflux profile for tank and healer.

either way very nice simple UI

Thnx again

i find it nicelly set out

Some things might be out offplace not straight just use Align when making it up and you wont go wrong.
Had a problem when i tried it on my tank i used the tank folder in the WTF but when i did reflux it came up as the healer setup
Havent tried other char since cause i want to know if there was a bug or you renamed the wrong char folders eg tank healer other?
And if you get critism from people its only cause they like your work but there jealous

Thanks for the comment I did additional testing, please mind this is my first release. I have been working on my interface since the beginning of WotLK and at the moment I'm happy with it and I believe it is highly functional for a healer or a tank.

Fonts used in the interface: Doris PP for most things,
Yellowjacket for chat bubbles, nameplates and unit names, diedie for combat text, arial narrow for chat.

Bar textures: Smooth v2 - Vuhdu, Glamour4 - everything else

I believe fonts and textures compose well with each other, this is however a matter of taste. I've heard from several people that the interface is clean.

For a healer role the big empty space at the bottom is for raid frames, as a tank you have omen in the centre and 2 action bars. For other classes you can fill the space with more action bars and turn off the bottom kgPanel although it's nice to see what's going on around you, isn't it?.
