SimBar skin for TidyPlates
Version: 1.6a
by: OttoDeFe [More]
Just a simple(ish!) skin for TidyPlates.
A few more cosmetic changes - squaring this up, enlarging/shifting that, hide an overlay...
Adjusted for 4.0 (Made the plates look like the pic again - lemme know if I missed something!)

elite marker?

Hi,

I see it's been a long time since you've commented here, and you said you'd started working on other projects, but I was hoping I could make a small suggestion for this skin.

I really love the look and simplicity of it, it's what I've been looking for on my non-tanks for a long time now. However, one thing I'd like is some kind of indicator for elite mobs. Maybe a little star by their level number, or an extra underline, or.... something. Other than that, it's great!

Thanks,
Taliyah

Edit... Much after posting this, I decided to take a look at the .lua to see if I could figure it out myself. Your screenshots show there is an elite marker, and I can see coding that refers to SimBarElite.tga (which is also in the proper folder), but those little elite bars aren't showing up. Maybe something changed in how Blizzard notes elites in the expansion??? Any help that anyone could give me would be great. This skin is otherwise perfect, I'd love to fix this one flaw!

Here's a good reference for making images:

http://forums.wowace.com/showthread.php?t=15439

My current plates are shown here - much the same, actually. I just added textures to the default plates via the method used by AI-Art.
I loved TidyPlates, but found I really wasn't using more than the default plates offered. If you need more, I think this addon is quick, easy and very customizable.

(Took a quick look at the texture for health - you just need to add a few pixels to the top of the light area. Then mess about with the y coordinates to move it a bit.)

Thank you for the reply and I apologize for taking so long MYSELF for replying. I opened up the .tga files in The GIMP to see if I could tweak them as you suggested, but all my years of Photoshop use have failed me as I couldn't get my head around what I was actually looking at. I ended up going with the default DPS plates and am starting to get used to them pretty well.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with for the re-skinning project.

Thank you again!

Am I missing something?

I am loving the look of this mod from the screenshots provided, however I think something is wrong.

I am not getting any error messages but the bars seem kinda small:



I would just like to make them a little bit bigger.

I've tried about a million different "slash commands" trying to see if there is a config UI.

Not sure if it matters but, my UI is 1920x1080(wide)

Any help would be much appreciated.

This add-on is VERY sexy, and exactly what I have been wishing for. Thank you so much! A Tidyplate with the minimalist in mind.
