CalaiUI  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 4.0.2
by: TheGeek [More]



4.0 » The rise of Lordaeron!

2560 x 1600 resolution designed interface

It's been quite some time since I last touched CalaiUI--with the launch of Mists of Pandaria; it seemed befitting to update and bring something new to the community.

In the past, CalaiUI was built for every class. However, this time around it's only built for Paladins. What does that mean? It means you will need to do a little work on a few small things for it to work with other classes. The reason for this is that awhile back I decided to delete every level 85 character I had for every class. It was becoming too time consuming and I rather focus on my Paladin that I enjoy greatly!

So, to the show. I hope you enjoy the UI; it would not have been possible without the amazing support and careful programmers of the many addons used in my suite.

Most of all; my inspiration; Lui!


Always check the Change Log for update information!


Installation Instructions

  1. Shutdown World of Warcraft.
  2. Create a backup of your Interface and WTF folders. Delete them once you have finished.
  3. Copy the Interface and WTF folders from the zip file to your WoW directory.
  4. Go into the WTF folder and rename ACCOUNTNAME, REALMNAME, CHARNAME. Please verify your information for each of these three folders, we've had countless support emails about this and it's all boiled down to incorrect typing of required names.
  5. To keep saved keybindings and macros, drop the bindings-cache, bindings.cache.old, macros-cache, and macros-cache.old from your backup character folder into your new character folder.
  6. Start WoW
  7. Ensure that ALL ADDONS are enabled.


Configure InGame

Once you load WoW and log into your character everything will be scattered throughout the middle of your screen. Do not fear.

Simply type /reflux switch CalaiUI (exactly how it's typed) and watch your UI reload.

The chat frame is not bounded to the kgPanels at the left and right--it is your responsibility to unlock and set your frames as you see.

If you wish to not use those frames:
  1. Type /kgpanels
  2. Go to Active Panels
  3. Delete chat_left or chat_right respectively

Type /reload to reload the UI.

Reflux has been updated to work, but has been known at times to not. If you are having problems with your UI not looking like our examples, please open up an addon and check the profiles tab. You should see "CalaiUI" as a profile option.

There is a known bug that if you have an account name with numbers you must ensure you copy/type it exactly how it is or addons will not load properly.


Additional Information - please read this!


HELP! I need to update Deadly Boss Mods

I'm using a DBM template that another addon user created and put up on WoWI. The issue, every time a new DBM is released I have to backup some files before I replace.

So, if you are going to update DBM you need to do the following first!
  1. Go to your DBM-Core folder and copy the "textures" and "DBT-Template.xml" file to your desktop
  2. Install the newest DBM download
  3. Copy the files you just backed up to the DBM-Core folder and overwrite the ones that came with the latest download

Special Action Bar?

The Special Action Bar (introducted in Cataclysm) is located in the middle just above Grid.


What about more action bars, aura bars, shape shift bars?

You will need to enable and place them where you see fit.

Type /bt and choose the appropriate bar(s) you require.


Where is the Target Casting Bar?

My mainspec is Holy, therefore I do not need to see what my mates are casting.

To unhide;
  1. Type /quartz
  2. Select "Target"
  3. Check "Enable"

Grid Layout - Healer and Tank/DPS

I have created two different layouts for you to use. The primary layout is setup for Holy; it's a simple centered above action buttons so that I can see what is going on and watch my cooldowns.

You will need to adjust the Grid profile for your taste; by default when you set this up it will automatically use the Tank/DPS layout.

Grid Profile Name

CalaiUI - this is a smaller more compact raid frame that sits mid screen far left.
CalaiUI - Healer - this is the layout you see in my screenshots.


Recount panel is way out of whack!

You may experience a small habit where Recount's window will move. Whatever you do, do not use kgpanels move panels option, all panels are tied to the addons so you need to move that specific addon. To do this with recount, follow these steps;
  1. Type /recount config
  2. Select Window, unlock window
  3. Drag Recount's window until it is back in the proper space

Recount is not coloring my class properly!

In recount we setup the coloring to show all classes outside of a Paladin as darker gray and the Paladin class lighter gray. The purpose behind this was visual reference at speed; locating a lighter bar against darker bar helps you find your place--especially when you need to monitor your HPS (Heals per Second).

To make this appropriate for your class outside of a Paladin, follow these steps:
  1. Open up Interface » Recount » Profile
  2. Type the name of your class in the "New" box and click OK
  3. Below that select one of the Paladin class in the "Copy From" and click OK
  4. You will see the Recount GUI behind you, close the interface options window and go to the GUI
  5. Select "Color" and you will see how all the classes are same color except Paladin
  6. Click the color box next to your class; adjust it to match the Paladin class
  7. Click the color box next to Paladin; adjust it to match all the other classes

» Added the new totems/weapon buffs bars to the bottom of the player unitframe (see description notes on activating them.)
» Changed font string for all addons to "DeckerB", it's a much better looking font for a 30 inch monitor.
» Cleaned up alignment on some addons.

» Moved to KUI Namplates instead of caelNameplates.

3.2
» Updated core addons to support changes in 4.0.6

1.2
» updated the Optional 1024 resolution WTF with an actual one built off a friend who has a true 1024. I had mine almost close, but it was better to have one of an actual player. Should help out those under 1600 resolution.

1.1
» added SexyGrid to the UI. I worked through the Lua and modified it so that it would work with the newest Grid release. If the original author disapproves, please contact me and I will remove it.

If you downloaded 1.0, you don't need to reinstall the entire UI. Just grab !BeautyCase and Grid from the addons folder in the zip and copy it to WOW. Then go into the WTF and get the two Grid files from "SavedVariables" and copy them to your global folder in WTF. This is not available for the 1024 optional file, sorry.

1.0
» initial release

I emailed you just the new WTF. Try that one and see what happens?

When you extract it, look in the saved variables folder (the one outside the charactername folder). Is there a lot of files in there? Looks like for some reason it's not reading the variables right.

The original 1024 worked for my buddy, it was just royally jacked up LOL. I forgot to change the UI scale for a smaller monitor so everything was microscopic.

Woo... these small resolutions are so tricky to get right... Basically you're going to have to fiddle with it some to get it lined up. Luckily all the addons are bound to windows so really you can move around what you need.

Ok, so here's what you need to do. I'll try to break it into steps.

1. Resize Chat Window and align box

Right click on "General" tab and click unlock. Look at bottom left of the chat window above edit box, you will see three diagonal slashes. That is your drag point for the window, drag it so the width shortens. Right click on "General" and lock it again.

Type /kgpanels config and expand "Active Panels". Look for the panel named "chatFrame1". Scroll down to the section that has Height/Width and the nudge buttons. You will need to nudge the black box (one going off left side of screen) back right and in line with the UI.

2. Move Omen

Type /omen and check the mark "Test Mode" and "Lock Window". This will populate Omen and make it moveable. Move it to the left underneath the bar that is above it. Uncheck "Test Mode" and "Lock Window" to lock it back down.

3. Shrink and move Grid

This one is tricky, Grid requires a raid in order to properly set it since they don't give a test mode. BG is the quickest and easiest way to setup Grid. Basically you utilize Omen and Recount boxes as your reference points. Let's resize the grid black box first.

Type /kgpanels config and again expand "Active Panels". Go down to the Position Settings area. What we need to do is shrink the width but possibly nudge it right. Do this by typing in a lesser value for width and pushing the "right" under nudge. You want to put that black box so that it fits between Recount and the end of the screen. Once that is done you are good there.

Next step is to type /grid and go to Frame Layout uncheck "Frame Lock" and then go to "Frame". Once there, scroll towards the bottom and look for the field "Frame Width". You will need to get into a 25 man raid or BG in order to size this properly to fit in the space. You may need to tweak the height as well. This is just trial and error.

4. Move Quartz and FX

This is easy. We just need to move the cast bars and the cooldown timer. To do the cast bars, type /quartz and click "Toggle Lock Bar". You will see two black long rectangles; one named Player and the other Target. Just grab each one and drag them between Omen and Recount above the buttons. Make sure to leave room for the cooldown timer. When done click the big red button that says Toggle Lock.

Now to move the cooldown timer, type /fx and click "Cooldown Timer" at the bottom. The top portion will auto scroll down to proper place. You will see a lock beside the title "Cooldown Timer" that will allow you to move the bar. Move it as the same above and then lock it down.

Now in the same FX options window, click "Spell Timer" at the bottom and do the same thing; click the lock. Drag the spell timer (those are the bars shifted right from your player unitframe) to above your player unitframe.


-------------------

That should get you sorted. I apologize for some of the work involved. I never mastered configuration that actually stuck for anything under my resolution.

I know, right. I've been contemplating on ideas for it. Perhaps that clever text micro thing folks use? I don't know.

Hey Calai

I make a 1920x1080 res WTF for you

I changed 2 addons aswel. Bankersomething and Bagons. Tbag does what both of those 2 combined does so i just replaced those 2.

Also included Xloot cause the drops and rolls fall all over the buttons.

Just a few changes but their all setup perfectly.

ANd thanks for this ... been trying to get a Lui replacement for a while sisnce Loui is way to slow with updates when it comes to patches and always leaves me hanging for 2 weeks after patch day where i cant function properly.

Let me know where to email the WTF for you

How about fade and show only on mouseover??

Okay I have a dilemma, apparently I am going blind because I cannot read that itsy bitsy text on the docking station across the top. I have tried to resize to no avail. Please help an old lady out.

Hiya.

I've been looking for an addon suite after knowing I won't be able to use LUI for a while. Yours came across as one those I'd look into as an replacement, I was wondering though since I am accustomed to healing with healbot instead of Grid + Clique, if there was a way to hide Grid?

I'd smack Healbot in it's place and then revert it if I am not healing.

Cheers,

Plushy.

Just disable GRID for your healer and enable healbot.

It's included in the 1.3 update.

I love the ui but there are 2 minimal faults. Look on screen and the cycle
