Hey there Caellian

Sorry if I necro'd this thread unnecessarily, but I wasn't sure from reading some of the latest comments on the layouts download page if questions / advice on how to modify your code should be done there or here.

I'm still a novice at modifying ouf layouts, although I'm pretty handy at following directions. There are three things I'd like to do, and I'm wondering if it would be too complicated to do or not possible ...

The first would be to make the party member frame font one size larger. -- No longer needed, I figured this one out

The second would be to reshade the default black of the frames to another color. I've got the color codes, I'm just not entirely sure on exactly where to place it. Not really wanting to reshade the black inside of the frame ... but rather, the border of the frames.

The third would be to have the party member frames grow horizontally as opposed to vertically.

Thanks for any advice, and I hope I'm not pestering.


Edited to strikeout/modify things I figured out.

Rhaethe,

For the party frames you need to change

Code:
local party = oUF:Spawn("header", "oUF_Party")
party:SetPoint("TOPLEFT", UIParent, "TOPLEFT", cfg.partyX, cfg.partyY)
party:SetAttribute("showParty", true)
party:SetAttribute("yOffset", -27.5)   this line from yOffset to xOffset and the number following it is the spacing
party:SetAttribute("template", "oUF_cParty")
just a note to, that you also will need to change oUF_cParty.xml as well to reflect party pets and targets growth and placement.

Aha. That was the part I was missing when I tried the first couple times.

Thank you!

No worries. I figured out how to change the texture used on my own, so I am pretty happy about that. And I did figure out about the font sizing.

I gave the horizontal party a try, and for some reason I ended going back vertical. It's wierd ... some UnitFrame layouts I like horizontal, some I like vertical.

My next project (as it were) is to figure out how to play around with the coloring of the black parts. Basically, the entirety of my UI has instead of black outlines and bits ... a subtle dark blue outlines and bits. Not black ... not blue ... a nice subtle mixture of both.

So my next step is to try to wedge the UnitFrames into that.

If any of that makes sense.

Firstly I would like to say I love what you have done with your UI. In fact, I'm trying to modify it so that it's more functional for healing (i'm a resto shaman). Unfortunately I'm not very good at lua programming and I need some help with this.

Here's what I'm trying to do for the raid and party frames:
1. Add custom debuffs icons to raid frames/party frames (with cyan highlight on frame) - icon on the right at the same level where the name is.
2. Aggro monitoring (a red highlight on the person who has aggro)
3. Poison/Disease/Curse tracking (with pink/orange/purple highlight respectively)
4. Track Earth Shield charges on players

Also, I would like to have a frame of myself in the party frames (currently party frames only show other party members).
And when in a 25 man raid, have the group that I'm in always appear on the 1st column, instead of having it on the 4th column if i'm in group 4 for example.

Any tips on how to do this will be much appreciated. Or if you plan to update this UI in the future, please take some of my suggestions into consideration.

Points 2 and 3 are already in the layout.

Point 1 and 4 are class specific, worse, healer specific, bear in mind that this is a personal layout and considering the fact that i am not a healer and will never be, the chances to see those features get in are slim.

Having the player frame displayed in the party won't happen, i've tried it, it's fairly simple but due to the fact that i'm displaying party targets and pets, adding this mess everything up.

Hey Caellian, the frames are awesome. I was wondering if you can put visual heal in the addon. I know it's more for a healer, but just a suggestion.

Edit: I was looking around and could you possibly put support in for ouf_healcomm.

Caellian does not need to do anything, you simply install that mod and you're good to go.

There are a couple config options, but you would need to edit the config file in the addon package, so I'm not sure that's the type of config you're looking for.

There are none as this is a Unit Frame layout not a complete UI. If you wish to have a ui that looks like this as I am sure most of us would, you will need to make your own in which case you can use any number of bar mods (dominos, bartender and others) and recount and omen or skada and build your own ui to look like this until Caellian decides it is finished enough to be released. To be honest I am just glad he released his unit frames/name plates mod, releasing his ui would just be icing on the cake to be honest it isn't too tough to make a clone look a like, while it wont be the exact same thing take his unitframes and run with them as you will have the ability to create the rest of the ui around these awesome unit frames.
