I switched away from Aloft for more lightweight nameplates. I picked up the Roth edited version of Evl_Nameplates. I want to change the nameplates from red to the color of the class though. Is this a large rewrite or a simple edit in the lua? I'm unfamiliar with lua so wanted to know how much work such a change would require before I attempt to dive in.
I need help with my UI (holy priest). I got so far grid, xperl, bongos just need to put them on my screen, and that's the problem ;-) I can't fiure out the best way to do so. Most of "ready to go ui's" are for panoramic monitor, and i got old style square ;] Any one got a nice ui that i can use ?
I was looking in the Share your Interface thread and I noticed that one of the posters mentioned that his solo and raid UIs would switch automatically. I was wondering what mod(s) could be used to implement that functionality as it is an issue that has plagued me for some time (attempting to create a UI that is friendly to partying, soloing, and raiding all at once). The only addon that this user mentioned that I am very unfamiliar with is OpenRDX. I looked briefly at the OpenRDX wiki but as its 4am for me at the moment my reading comprehension is not exactly stellar.
OpenRDX has 5 buit in preset options for auto-switching,
Inn, Solo, Group, Raid, PvP
Each layout can be enabled/disabled as you prefer, auto-switching can also be enabled/disabled.
Custom desktops can also be configured for other events, ie at certain bosses.
All it requires is configuring your UI within each layout, ie window placement, timer tracking, buff/debuff style/position.
By instaling OpenRDX base, grabbing some of the 3rd party unitframes/raid frames you're ready to go.
For solo you could have one style of unitframes, the Inn UI could use a completely different syle of unitframes. Switching to Group could open party frames, threat meter, decurse frame, High Order Targer window, place the map in a less obtrusive postiton etc, again all could be completely different in appearance to the solo/raid/PvP frames.
Using a healer as an example, the solo UI shows player, target, ToT spread on the left and right of the screen, in a raid the healer might want those frames much closer (almost stacked) perhaps larger as well, this would gain back sceen estate and allow plenty of room for a Grid layout, buffing frames, general raid info.
All this is handled automatically, all you'd need to do is the initial setup (position,style, scale and which frames are shown within each desktop using the Window Manager).
This link gives a better idea of what's possible (although it is rather old) map and other elements weren't handled by OpenRDX at that time,
Since it appears Spellbinder no longer works, does anyone know of a suitable replacement?
Hoping somebody else can offer more consolation than I can. I've been searching for uh, entirely too long this afternoon and have found no information. Every link points back to spellbinder, or to people saying to just edit the config file directly.
About to give up and move on to finding some still-functional cooldown bars ala hourglass.
Does anyone know of an updated version (or replacement mod) for DiscoDice that is compatible with 3.0, and more specifically, with Hunger For Blood?
I never used DiscoDice to keep track of buffs/debuffs but I can recommend Classtimer which covers everything when it comes to buff/debuff tracking. It has been updated for 3.0.2 and covers Hunger for Blood.
