Thumbs up Nui with n52 grids

I'd be very interested in seeing how you will integrate 3x4 grids into Nui to mimic the layout of the N52te. I'm currently using Dominos to layout 5 onscreen bars that I control via the n52te, and most fancy UI overhauls I've seen always have abilities in either a big clump or horizontal bars. Right now my interface isn't exactly pretty, but it's extremely functional. I'd love to be able to have it pretty AND functional
Example of my interface and N52te setup is on my YouTube channel, The Two Ring.

You can *easily* alter nUI's action bars to support a 3x4 grid... edit [ Interface > AddOns > nUI > Layouts > Default > nUI_Layout_Default_Dashboard.lua ] and locate the button bar section...

nUI_DefaultConfig.ButtonBars =
    ["nUI_ActionBar"] =
        btn_size = 53.5,
        gap      = 2,
        anchor   = "BOTTOM",
        xOfs     = 0,
        yOfs     = 123,
        rows     = 1,
        cols     = 12,
        page     = 1,
        nuibind  = "nUI_ACTIONBAR",
        binding  = "ACTIONBUTTON",
        label    = nUI_L["nUI_ActionBar"],
All you have to do is change "rows = 1" to "rows = 4" and change "cols = 12" to "cols = 3" and you're done. All that remains is to use '/nui movers' to unlock the bars and drag them to the location you want.

What people don't get is that I am, ultimately, an artist at heart.
My brush has two colors, 1 and 0, and my canvas is made of silicon.

I used to use n52 (the old one with the orange trim) to play first to fight. Since then I've gotten a new keyboard, an apple keyboard with the keys that have about 3mm spacing between them and I love the tactile response. Even wintel laptop keys seem clunky. And the n52(te) and logitech g13 gamepads keys/buttons are just now cutting it. The functionality of the gamepads are wonderful. It's not them it's me.
