Prankstars Elegant UI  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.0.6
by: Prankstar [More]


Prankstars
Elegant UI
Version 3


Improved default World of Warcraft Interface

With the release of Battle for Azeroth, I have also chosen to "go back to one's root". Meaning that the design of the UI will change and move back to a default WoW look.
But even though it's like default, it has various improvements - such as pixel perfect artwork, aligned artwork, bigger unit frames etc.

Consider Prankstars Elegant UI an improved default UI. But the layout is still the same as before, but no more Legion or Iron Horde artwork. Instead you can have the default look, or switch to a darkened look (almost black).

Contact me here, or on Reddit, for help or questions.

See more detailed images



How to install
  1. Browse to your World of Warcraft folder and backup your WTF & Interface folders
  2. Delete the old WTF & Interface folders after the backup. This makes sure you don't have any other conflicting addons (such as bartender)
  3. Extract the WTF & Interface folders from PrankUI3.zip
  4. Copy Config.wtf from your old WTF folder into the new WTF folder
  5. Rename [RENAME TO ACCOUNT NAME] to whatever your account name is. You can find your account name from the old WTF folder
  6. Launch World of Warcraft and in your character screen, hit the button "Addons" in the lower left corner, and make sure all addons are enabled (even the outdated ones!)
  7. Login to a character and type "/prankui" (without the quotes) in chat to finalize the UI
  8. You're now ready to play. Type "/prankui" again to change layout if you want



How to use
  • You can easily add more actionbar buttons to the right of the screen if needed
  • Pr. default Skada isn't shown when solo, but you can toggle it on easily
  • The Bag bar and Micro menu is hidden until hovered over the corresponding buttons next to the main action bar.




FAQ
  • I can't find my Account name
    • It should either be a name, random set of numbers or "Wow1"
    • Default folder path: (C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account)
  • How do i make changes to the UI?
    • Just as you normally would. My setup addon only set some profiles in other addons.
    • If you want to make sure that your changes are shared across all your toons, you can make the changes directly in the "PrankUI" and "Default" profiles, and then when you use "/prankui" on new characters, they will inherit your changes.
  • Is this UI only for Warlocks?
    • No! This UI is for all characters
  • Can i use something else than Skada for damage meters?
    • Yes you can! But having the artwork to follow over requires some knowledge with kgPanels and simple LUA scripting

It might be due to a setting named something with server saved chat settings. I disabled it, you might need to enable it, and make your changes through CHATTER not right-clicking the chat frame.

Are you making changes, and they get reset - or is my settings reset?

Unfortunatly it would be "normal" behaviour. I never liked the lack of updates in Prat. I just changed it to use Chatter instead =)

Are you sure you followed all the steps exactly? Depending on what you're looking at, i could try and pin point your issue. PM me a screenshot and lets have a look at it

Great UI!

Wow, this UI looks amazing on a big high-res monitor. All the edges are sharp, and it's very easy to use. Excellent job, and thank you very much!

There is so much maintenance and work in order to support the two current skins in the same setup. So right now i'm taking my UI to a event more "elegant" state, and bring it visually wise back to a more default feel.

I take the default UI artwork, and work with it in photoshop, just like i've done with the other UI's so its just not 100% like default. Here is some WIP images i can share. I plan to have two options aswell, but one for default and one for darkmode, kinda like this.

I've been reported that it is not solving the issue 100%, the raid frames are bugged.

But you need to enable file extensions in windows explorer. It is named .txt (but its hidden), thats why its opening notepad. So enable show file extensions in windows explorer, and you can remove the ".txt" part.
