Extra Hud Bars

Hi,

Was wondering if it's possible to add an extra couple bars to the players hud.

I play as a rogue and would love to see S&D and recoup as bars right next to my health, rather than having to glance at the buff list on the left.

I do realise that its probably not an option for nUI5 and I do know that I could always download another HUD addon like icehud but quite honestly I prefer your bars and the setup with icehud simply irretates me to the point where I disable it.

If it's not an option maybe you can give me some pointers so I can add them myself.

Well... since my puny rogue is only level 17 (for what, two years now? ~lol~) -- explain to me the mechanics of how these bars would work and I'll see what I can do in nUI6.

I have a level 40 something hiding around somewhere I can tamper with if you need some tests done over the next few days.

I suppose it wouldn't be limited to rogues but since its my main its the one I have experience with.

S&D and recoup are just buffs with a timer. Certain abilities can refresh the timers. So for a good rotation it is best to keep them up and running. Icehud gives you the option to add additional special bars for S&D and others i would guess for other classes. (Icehud just gives me a headache with all the options)

I understand if it isn't something you want to add into the HUD as it adds complexity but it certainly would make keeping an eye on them easier.

I can also test if its something you would like to add to the addon.

Actually... I was planning on adding whitelist auras for nUI6, so this would fall into that category... they would appear your on your cooldown bar.
