New class bars
 
I'm currently in the process of creating new class bars.

Paladin HolyPower
Monk Chi
Priest ShadowOrb
Rogue/Vehicle/Druid ComboPoints
Warlock Demonology (DemonicFury)
Warlock Affliction (Soulshards)
Warlock Destruction (BurningEmber)

Texture preview:


Current ideas:

HolyPower:
3-5 orbs in paladin class color

Chi/Harmony:
4-5 orbs in monk class color

Priest shadow orbs
3 orbs in violet color

ComboPoints
5 orbs in yellow color

Now it gets interesting.

Affliction (SoulShards)
3 gems ... highlighting in bright purple when active

Demonology (DemonicFury)
Some kind of statusbar...not sure how.

Destruction (Burning Ember)
3-4 statusbars (maybe in form of potions?!)

I'm currently searching for good ideas to do DemonicFury and BurningEmber. Maybe someone has a nice idea. :)

That's what i did for burning embers in ncb:

So, I'd say you should go for a medium sized bar that would be good for both demonic fury and burning embers.
You also can utilize it for other classes, for example tracking duration on arcane charges.
Potion idea is good, but as with blizzard's default it might not be always easy to tell whether it's full or 90% full.

If a potion is full it could have an glow or overflow effect... But actually ember != potion. Hmmm...

Btw if you need help with your textures send me a message.

try something for demonic fury like on Diablo3 with Demon Hunters, they have an orb divided into 2 sections, to show the resource value

and for burning embers, see if u can find a good animation for a piece of coal, glowing red or something

I'm near the finish line.

BurningEmber and SoulShards still missing (At least in the code). Rest is done.

Take a look:

The texture work took quite a bit of time. ;)

BurningEmber and SoulShards will get unique displays. I really like how demonic fury worked out.

Looks awesome.

Stop making such awesome artwork! You always make me regret having a pixel border-style UI.

Personally though, I would make holy power a golden colour.

What happens when you deselect your target by the way? Resources that are not target-bound, unlike combo-points, might seem a bit strange having their display floating about like that. Maybe you could incorporate them into the bottom frame more, somewhere attached to the top of action bar perhaps?

I may have to try your UI again at one point if only for those sweet, sweet orbs.

zork 09-03-12 02:46 AM

Color is part of the config. Bars are scalable and movable. So you choose.
I did not change the way how oUF shows class bars. Thus when you have no point left it will hide automatically.

zork 09-03-12 01:15 PM

Soul Shards done.

Time to Upload.

As I said on MMO-C, love it. But I think DK Runes should get a bit love. Maybe border or new fitting icons. Or same orbs/gems, just colored and filling up (when on CD). I am still thinking about some ideas. :'D

zork 09-07-12 10:39 AM

Finished the new runebar.

Runes are statusbar orbs that fill up vertically.

Very nice job on the different elements, they really fit in with the theme of your UI.

zork 09-08-12 02:37 PM

Thanks. I appreciate that.

zork 09-11-12 03:35 PM

Last part is done. The new eclipsebar.

I changed the behaviour a bit. You deplete the bar and once it is depleted you gain a new power. Once the buff is active the bar will glow.

Don't hold your breath... what Zork has shown you is basically just a skin for oUF. Pulling out part of that skin and turning it into a complete addon is likely far more work than Zork (or any other oUF layout author) has any interest in doing.

nin 09-13-12 02:59 PM

A lot of times watching your work Zork i wish i played tank or dps, just so i can use your stuff.

It's awesome just watching the screenies! :)
