Pick for 7/26: TheRingThing (new)


This is an addon which hopes to bring fruition to an idea our Iriel had a few years ago. With changes to the game's API, something like this is now easier to achieve. The idea is a ring which fills radially instead of straight across, and which does not deal with multiple textures. You can then use these rings to display health/mana/etc. for yourself, your party, your target... So far, Zork's implementation is only configurable through the lua code (I hear he's looking for a helper to do the GUI bit). Through the lua code, though, you can have whole rings or partial (arcs). You can define the thickness of the ring, even making it a whole sphere. You can create rings for any unit, and you can place them anywhere on your screen. He offers many suggestions in the addon's description.

See his ideas of what you can create and try it yourself here.

Are you the author of a mod that you think belongs in this spotlight? Just upload/update it to WoWInterface, and it will automatically be considered for that week's Pick.
