[UI] ElvUI 3.3.5a Remake for 1.12.1
3 3

103 posts in this topic

Hello guys,

I dont know if you guys are familiar with ElvUI. It was (and still is) one of the most popular UI customizations. It is a mod of the famous TukUI. I loved it back in WotLK. I know that there is a TukUI remake out here, but to be honest (no offence to the author) I don't like it at all, so I decided to make my own one.

IMPORTANT: The current version of my remake is a very early beta. The purpose of this topic is to get some feedback from you guys. To be clear right away: it's not possible to copy it 100%. I'm trying my best to get as close as possible, but I will not reach 100%.

INTERFACE UPDATED! Scrool down to see changelog! (Current revision: 190)

RELEASED: http://www.mediafire.com/?lw9dlwpvv0tzsd7

Please be informed that this is still an early beta! Please read the readme file on GitHub to avoid basic questions.

KEY FEATURES:

• fully skinned addons (there are still addons need to be skinned)

• 4 in 2 Action bars (hold shift to switch)

• unique class bar (not stance, pet or combo bar) (still needs to be implemented)

• Auto repair on vendor gossip

• Auto sell trash on vendor gossip

• Auto show/hide of SWStats and KTM (still needs to be implemented)

• more to add

Lets get started. For those of you who aren't familiar with ElvUI, this is what I am trying to copy:

Original ElvUI version 1.44 (For WotLK 3.3.5a)

(right click image -> "open in new tab" to show its native resolution)

So what does my Remake look like? UPDATED VIEW (Revision 190)!

Explanation of UI elements (Please note: Some of the elements shown here are already outdated)

So lets go into details about the main view:

1 - MoneyFu

2 - DurabilityFu

3 - BagFu

4 - QuestFu

5 - GroupFu

6 - PerformanceFu

7 - ToFu

8 - AtlasFu

9 - EmoteFu

10 - ItemBonusesFu

11 - MicroMenuFu

12 - General chat window (Display just the general chat (and local defense) of the area you're in).

13 - Personal chat window (Display say, yell, emotes, guild, party, whisper and loot)

14 - Main bar

15 - Second bar

16 - Player frame

17 - Pet frame

18 - Target frame (no target atm)

19 - ToT (no target atm)

20 - BattlegroundFu

21 - SkillsPlusFu

22 - TopScoreFu

23 - SWStatsFu

24 - Class specific bar (Shaman = totembar, Hunter = aspect bar, Warrior = stance bar, ...)

25 - LocationFu

26 - GuildFu

27 - FriendsFu

28 - MailFu

29 - ClockFu

30 - Minimap

Action Bars: I am only using two visible action bars, but because two are likely to be too few to play properly, this happens when I hold shift:

It would also be possible to add a 3rd and 4th layout with CTRL and ALT modifier.

Lets look into the unit frames a bit: Usual layout when targeting someone.

czam.jpg

What about a description?

hxz9.jpg

1 - My mana

2 - My health (class colored)

3 - My health bar (same goes for pet, target and ToT)

4 - My mana bar (same goes for pet [focus bar] and target)

5 - Oops, missed that one.

6 - Pet happiness (1 - sad, 2 - neutral, 3 - happy, there is also the possibility to display the icon)

7 - Pet name

8 - Pet HP

9 - Target mana (in this case nothing)

10 - Target marked for pvp?

11 - Targets level and name in class color (in this case a warrior)

12 - Targets cassification (in this case nothing, but it could be Elite, Rare Elite, Boss, ...)

13 - Targets health

14 - ToT with health bar (In this case there is no ToT, therefore it displays "Target has no target")

01me.jpg

Same layout with a mage in target and actually a ToT.

I'm targeting myself while marked for PvP (See the "PVP" at player and target frame).

1ujl.jpg

Target frame while targeting an elite mob (To show the classification).

And finally the party frame at the left side of the screen. It shows HP and mana of party members and party pets + leader icon. Party member names are displayed in their class color.

I think that is all I can show you right now. Of course there is a shitload that needs to be done.

ToDo

• Include a raid addon / raid layout

• Include layouts for

- SWStats

- KTM

- I don't know what else, but like 20 other addon I assume

• adjust class/stance bar for every class.

• adjust combo bar for rogue

• Make the UI usable for multiply resolutions

• A lot more

I have to mention that those are not all addons I will use once the UI is fully done. For example I'm still missing a threat meter and some other things. As you can see the addon choice is pretty personal. I've always loved FuBar, therefore I'm using it again now. The FuBar addons I chose are just my personal preference, you may or may not agree with that.

Thanks

Turtleneckchain - for generally helping me out.

I probably forgot to mention important things.. but I will update the thread as soon as they come in mind. So what do you guys think about my attempt to remake ElvUI? I kinda like it so far, although it takes hugh amounts of time to configurate it.

Geez, minikN

I used ElvUI on all my alts from WOTLK - MoP. If you could pull this off for 1.12 or 2.4.3, I would personally love you.

~33mb is shown in the screen

you can maximize your mb cap if you open the addon list at your character menu and then on the upper right corner you can raise the cap

Actually it uses around 26 mb, the 33mb was after some hours of garbage collection :(

And be informed that I'm aware of this issue, I'm trying to keep this user interface as tight as possible. I might exclude Atlas again for this purpose, I don't know yet.

I updated the first thread! You can see the picture now. Sorry for the long delay, due to private obligations and the server being constantly attacked I was not able to do much, but you can be sure I'm on this thing!

Release this before i go mental^^

Where is the link to DL Elvui for 1.12.1 here

Oh yes I wish a release of this too :wub:

The only thing that keeps me from releasing right now is the resolution problem. I haven't found an elegant way to make it usable on multiply resolutions, and I know as soon as I release it in this state there will be like 50 people asking how to adjust it to their particular setup. I also want to solve some bugs and bring it more into an master stance, it is still beta, beta, beta :)

Updated ToDo list, updated known bugs list!

Thank you for your support guys!

Looks absolutely awesome.

I cannot stress how much I want this, since my current addon situation requires constant attention without any satisfaction.

Lots of support from here!
