Wanted an opinion

Hey again peeps, I wanted an opinion from you all, I'm making a thin skin, and I wanted to add a little bit of a texture to it, since I see they are all boxy and square. The problem is, I think it looks great, but the chat box, and info panel have a slight piece of them popping out, it's not a huge deal, but I wanted to know what you all thought.

I generally like the shape and texture, but the chat and info frame corners sticking out like they do makes my CDO itch. ~lol~

Suggestion... make the action bars be the ones that overlap and it probably wouldn't feel so out of place... especially if you make a shape/bevel in the texture that matched up to the little bit of action bar that overlaps it... kind of like "holders" or "rivets" or something to that effect that makes it look like that corner of the action bar is anchored into the console... something to that effect. (just thinking out loud)

Anyway... I like the concept.

Yea, I was talking to a buddy, and I was actually thinking of making a "floating" sort of bar holder in the middle, something held up by a set of pipes, or bars, I drew it out, and it seems like it could work, so long as I get the transparency exact, so that will be the next picture I upload .

Might take a little bit though, I'm fishing .

Oh man, I'm sooooooooooooooooooooo happy on how this came out, you have no idea!

Check it out now and no, you aren't dreaming, the top console fits in the bottom .

I have to do a little bit of cleaning up to remove the red stains from flattening the image, but after that, it should be good to go.

This just tickles me to death... it's the first time someone has gone in and started moving nUI's elements around and presenting them in new ways.... thank you for doing this.

I can't wait until I finish the layout engine and get to see people start to get seriously creative with nUI.

It looks very nice and I will be downloading it myself to try out tomorrow.

And yes Scott, I am sure I will be dabbling with layouts once the engine is complete

Yep, just tried it out on my lil bank toon and used the movers option to rearrange some things and it looks like the floating bar works well as my main action bar holder as I have that one enlarged and can have the special bar above it on the left and the control panel on the right. May need to tweak the latency and fps display to even further fit that block into the right hand side of the bar where I have a little gap.

My MAN! I never use this word, but that is just AWESOME! I am completely impressed, and more than a little jealous because I'm nowhere near as creative as you.

Heh, I appreciate all the comments, as I said in my addon page though, it was only because I flat-out love nUI, I'll be making a non-chained version for people that don't like them . Enjoy, and if you want it with a certain color, I'd be glad to remake it, the files are done, so it's just a matter of colorization .

I may upload a pack with a bunch of different colors, I haven't decided.

Can't get ingame to test them, but here are the pictures of the latest ones, that one with the biohazard, it's a final project I did in school, I may use that kind of background on a new skin. The tribal one, it's possible will not be here in wowi, I made it more for myself, so unless a lot of people want it, it's not going to be posted .

Yea, I may upload it, but I need to mess with the colors a bit more, the blue makes it look like a jean.

Here is the new Tribal skin, the HUD is still being worked on, it looks fine, but the black is still too thick and it covers the bars in certain places.
