You do know the priest class color is white, right?

I wonder when people finally realize that there is a limited number of possible combinations with a limited number of elements. It's more than 5 years of WoW, it's more than 5 years of people changing their interface. There is nothing left that hasn't been done, after all a unitframe is either just a number or bars with numbers or just bars, with border, without, with art, without, with portrait, without ... get over it, it will look familiar.

Stop being so utterly devoted to interface design, it's no god damn art. It's main purpose is to provide the user with information and possibilities to interact/communicate with the game/other users, after all. It's more about convenience than anything else, which means if it works for someone it's fine.

Simple stuff works for a lot of people, which means they'll use it. And than there is the same thing happening in wow like it is in RL. People have no opinion on their own or simply don't want to take the time to get to much into something that has been done over and over before and just "copy/paste".

TBH, the style that is "copy/pasted" the most, atm, could be a way worse one.

I really like the UI of Henriks, some small things I would change (crisp borders) but all in all. I like it. Hope to see some small detail work and a new shot.

And pleeease all, can you gtfo of this thread with this discussion? Open a new thread. I may post my opinion to this damn idiotic topic there then, too.

Ah and no, my UI is nothing fancy, new, I know. But it looks solid and I like to play with it. So, let me out of that discussion (since Wimpy mentioned my UI).

Edit:

And before I forgot, new screenshot of my solid, nothing new, but nice UI:

http://www.abload.de/img/wowscrnshot_110810_213if6b.jpg

Still WIP, have to make a new BF skin and stuff.

LOL, Anyway, went a different route with textures, added a new font, and changed a few other minor things. Still far from complete but it is getting there.

As always I look forward to the great feedback
Looks good to me! I like the generally consistent rounded edges (can you skin the buffs too?), and the font seems to go nicely with it. The boss frames are hard for me to read as the health gets lower, and the missing health is REALLY prominent so I was a little confused looking at it at first. Other than that, really nice

For my own stuff, I managed to generally get rid of the square-ness of my VuhDo frames, but it's still very much a WIP. Considering moving all my frames over to oUF instead of stuf + vuhdo; I was playing with a couple layouts the other day and fell in love with the tags system. But that will not happen for a while; I don't know enough to hammer it into circles. Also, Orgrimmar has some obnoxiously orange floor.

Haven't enlarged the unit frames yet because, honestly, I'm lazy and I didn't anchor things the way I should've so resizing will be a pain.

I second the vote to move the discussion to its own thread; it definitely isn't posting a screenshot of a UI

On a more on-topic note, I have a group pic for my ui! Let me know what you think, please Also, if you have any suggestions for placement of my ToT and Pet/Focus frames, I would be very appreciative

@ Sevti.

Currently the Addon that I use for buffs/debuffs does not support BF support.

And I would love to use OUF so that I can achiev exactly what I am looking for however its taking me a while to figure out even the basics=(.

But as far as the boss bar i didnt even notice that. I will add the same loss of health that the rest of the UI has.

Actually, Dawn, I do think designing (and creating) an interface can be art, although it's more of a hobby of course. But compare it to designing a building; it has to be functional, yet nobody wants a solid brick cube as a house. It needs to look good, too. Form follows function. And hell yes, buildings can be art.

Oh man, I want to make such an "art" UI myself. :/ But I am too bad with photoshop and alpha channels...

Same here. If I possessed such knowledge I'd be messing around with art all the time. I just don't get the time to learn how to use photoshop at the moment.

To sylv, going from your idle shot..

Imo make your cooldown thingy smaller, the same length as the unitframes and make it display cooldowns from 2minutes maximum. Don't really need to see stuff coming off cooldown further a long from that I don't think.

What addon are you using for your nameplates? I need to get a nicer-looking one for my UI, now that they have fixed the buggyness :P

All I know have I teached myself over the years. Just needs patience and dedication. Most people don't have that.

I think there's been a lack of well done graphical UI's such as RothUI, in all 5 years of WoW.

EDIT: Nicely done Wildbreath
