Dawn, I liked number 3 and number 5. I didn't actually read it was to decide on a font but the layout of those 2 are appealing to me. Looking at the fonts now, I would still pick those 2 nice work!

Thanks for the input! I just thought about it again and me thinks this is a better layout?!

At least it has more flexible positions for elements.


edit: Added picture showing state icons (master looter, leader, rested, combat) and again combo points/class specific power.

I like the last one, others look either pretty 'dirty' and don't scale too good or just simply too generic (like the 2nd from the bottom).

adding to what Seerah already mentioned, I'd completely get rid of the LFD role icons and replaced them with a little text tag like 'T', 'D' or 'H'.

Coalition and Jacinto Sans. Seems like both are either derived from a third font or from one and another, since they basically are identical, except for a few glyphs here and there and different lower case position/size and the "distortion" effect used on them.

The layout is WIP, same goes for class icons (they need a thinner black background for this layout), might make my own raid icons, too. hanks are awesome, but don't really match, maybe desaturated, ... I'll see.

Anyway, which font? Or if none of these, which else?


note:
First example is a mix of the second example's font for numbers and the last one for names.


explanation (if necessary):
100 = health percent
grey number = current power value
5 = combo points (or holy power, soulshards, maelstrom stacks, etc. for player)
85 = level
first icon = class


Use Eurostile, Gotham, Avant Garde, Futura, or any of their variants.

Absolutely no reason why you shouldn't be able to. If you're still having issues after reading "Instructions for MyMedia.txt" then create your own thread in the AddOn Help/Support forum.

Will the numbers drain/fill ala ouf_hank or at a minimum re-color themselves based on hp loss? I fear without some sort of additional visual indicator they won't have enough 'oomph' to be visually apparent while in combat. I found I had a similar issue with RealUI, where I needed to change the color of the hp/mana indicators because the amount of white was just too much for my aging eyes to see

White will be dominant, however as health depletes the health value's color will change: white > yellow > orange > red. The number is big enough and in a pretty visible position for not being able to miss it, me thinks.

I don't want to do the same like Hank, because I want to keep the flexibility of easy font changing.

I just made my own version of the font, just need to add accents, and some other special cases to it.
