Red face Change bar texture on Personal Resource Display

Hi! I'm looking for a very simple addon (no UI overhauls) that just lets me change the bar textures on the new Personal Resource Display.

I was pointed in the direction of Plater but unfortunately that only lets you change the texture of the health bar and not the Energy/Mana/etc. bar in addition to changing more stuff than I'd like.

The addon I'm looking for should be as simple as changing a couple of variables, and I don't need any UI for it since I can set the specific texture manually in the .lua. I tried doing this myself but since I have no knowledge of WoW modding I didn't get much further than creating a .lua file I did dig around and find a couple of relevant variables (functions?) by trial & error editing inside the Plater .lua.

Lua Code:
  1. ClassNameplateManaBarFrame:SetStatusBarTexture (texture)
Sets the Mana/Energy/etc. texture and
Lua Code:
  1. ClassNameplateManaBarFrame.ManaCostPredictionBar:SetTexture (texture)
Sets the texture of the "how much mana your current cast will cost you" bar. This only changes the texture when you cast a spell, not when you use an instant attack. For a real life example, if I use my Monk and cast Effuse then the bar looks fine.. but if I cast Tiger Palm then I get the old texture in the "afterglow" energy spent effect.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Been looking for the same. It should be pretty simple to customise Blizzard's Personal Resource Display Bar since we can identify the frames and textures by typing /fstack in the game.

Let me know if you hear anything please :-)
