ColdUI  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.0.3
by: Coldkil [More]

WoD hits tonight, and i haven't had much time to tinker the UI. Anyway i managed to make a bare-bone 6.0 version of it with all the major stuff working. This means no bags unfortunately (for the moment. Next days i'll be leveling and playing as everyone else, if you find error/bugs feel free to post them so i can check when i'll have some more free time (hope i get to cap fast so you don't have to wait too much).

All-in-one UI pack, working for every resolution, just try it and keep it if you like it! Mess with the code, but i don't support any edit.

LATEST NEWS:
- added better styled role indicators on party/raid frames.
- redone loot plugin, now you can move it around like other frames.
- added damage meter! You don't need to setup anything, the skin is already done and ready to use.
- now actionbars can be set to appear on mouseover! just set the option in the config file.

Features:
- healer layout available: just set the option to true and /reload ui
- you can enable/disable pretty much any plugin
- extended focus frame available, with portrait and castbar
- datatext can be enabled/disabled too, and background panel can be toggled on/off
- change textures/fonts as you please
- you can setup your personal layout, and if you mess with thing, reset everything

SLASH COMMANDS:
/ch will make appear the help - everything is there
/align brings out a grid, very useful to move things around

Other options can be found in the relative addon config.lua file (or in game if it's provided).

AURORA:
i use an edited version of this addon to match all the Blizzard frames with the ones i designed. In game you should disable all options but the map reskin and the "replace normal game fonts" one.

ACTIONBARS:
just open config.lua in ColdBars addon, it's everything there. There are the same options as before plus some additional functionalities like vertical bars and the possibility to costantly hide pet/stance bar.
Button skin is embedded into the bars addon.
NOW PLUS MOUSEOVER!

About screenshots: they may show MSBT and an aura tracker addon, they aren't included in the package. Sorry, i still havent updated them, hope to do it asap.

CREDITS:
All credits go to respective addon authors.
Thanks to haste, for creating oUF.
Thanks to Caellian, since i've learned destroying you awesome layout.
Thanks to Tukz, i've taken some features from your incredible work.
Thanks to WoWInterface, MMO-Champion and WoWHead for their communities which have helped me a lot.
Bags are a stripped down and reduced to the bone version of Stuffing.

HOW TO INSTALL:

Cold,

Looking awesome man!

I found an error on line 683 in the layout.lua of unitframes.

It would activate when the healer layout was selected.

Here is the corrected code,

Code:
if layout.healer then
		player:SetPoint("BOTTOM", UIParent, "BOTTOM", -175, 240)
		pet:SetPoint('TOPLEFT', player, "BOTTOMLEFT", 0, -8)
		target:SetPoint("BOTTOM", UIParent, "BOTTOM", -175, 300)
		tot:SetPoint("LEFT", target, "RIGHT", 10, 2)
		focus:SetPoint('TOPLEFT', target, 'BOTTOMLEFT', 0, -18)

4.0 out!

new release is finally out! Enjoy it!

i left in the UI files the old layout file. If someone feels that he's capable of doing a good edit, feel free to try - old layout isn't compatible with the new draggable frames however. If you want that, you must edit the current layout file.

EDIT: i left wrongly the styler.lua in the actionbars folder - it won't load and it was a scrapped project, so you can delete it safely or leave it as it is.

news before MoP

long time without any news, so i'm going to write a little.

I feel that the UI in its current state is pretty fine, i don't think i will make another big "rewrite it all" work. This doesn't mean that i won't try to add new useful features, or i will leave it in its actual situation.

I will continue to play and the UI will be ready for MoP, thanks to the annual pass and the beta access.

As for current content, there will be a 3.2.1 release. Most of it will be about bug fixes (pet bar for dks, using items from bags returning errors, shaman totem bar for istance).

The real thing is that i'm implementing my old square UFs layout. I don't know how it will be received from the UI users, but it's worth a try imho.

Many will ask "why the need of an additional layout?" The answer is: It's only the first step to user-defined layouts.

The biggest flaw in my UI is that it's not so much customizable. But a big flaw in other UIs (i think) is that they offer a degree of customization which is too complicated or doesn't reflect the users' will.

What i'm trying to do is to have the possibility to load different layout files and switch them on-the-fly like i have implemented the dps/healer layout.
It's something that other addons already do, but not in the way i like.

The basic around it is always oUF, but with all the things that oUF doesn't include like actionbars and such.

This way people who likes to change their UI often will have the possibility to use a new look that i and (hopefully) others have realized, otherwise they can use the skeleton i'll provide to write their own custom uf layout.

Sound complicated at a first glance, and tbh it is. It will require a minimum of lua editing, but i managed to make it only a ctrl-c/ctrl-v process.

Hope these news will make you happy, and i want to thank everyone who still follows the project i have in mind.

More than 3000 downloads may seem very few compared to other very famous addons, but it makes me proud nontheless even if it's a small audience

Thanks again everyone!

EDIT: a small preview of the square layout

This is in my OS but I also tried in my MS as well. None of the action bars are moveable. Also, there is a weird red outlined bar in upper part of the screen that showed after I installed and the presence bar (stance? totem?) can't be moved either. I remember being able to do this with the previous verison.

Edit 2: The red outlined bar I realized is from ifilger. It broke after I installed ColdUI it seems. I'll try re-installing w/o ifilger and see what happens. Is this a known conflict?
never found an issue like this tbh - it seems it cannot save the variable that says "i have already done the setup".

bars should be already displayed, and the unholy dks should have a setup similar to hunters, with stance bar on left and pet on right - totally my fault, going to fix it in a very little time.

For the rest, never found the ifilger bug, and i also used it for some time - is it updated? I'm going to do a stress test with it, but it will require some more time to find the bug and fix.

Bars cannot be moved, but the setup should activate them all and you ca use the buttons to show/hide them - movable bars require more work, something i'd like to do but not going to release soon

EDIT: if you have the will to fix the bars yourself just do these things:

- go to stancebar.lua, line 26 and paste over it this
Code:
if playerClass == "HUNTER" or playerClass == "DEATHKNIGHT" then
- go to petbar.lua, line 12 and do the same above
- save files, /reload ui and it's fine.

EDIT2: for the records, i tried a clean install of the UI too, to look if the fault is by my side - unfortunately for you, everything has gone well, so it seem the problem is related to ifilger. Gonna test with it anyway.

Ok well good to know it's something on my end. I'll keep working at it. I'll use the code you gave me as well. Thanks for the quick reply!

Actionbars are the WoW standard ones - just do esc -> interface -> actionbars and toggle them all on. Probably you have them all activated on your main, new chars usually have them disabled by default.

As for 4.3 release, i finished yesterday to fix various bugs so the pack is ready

This evening it should be online for download.

EDIT: rActionButtonStyler seems to have been fixed. Gonna include it too.

4.3 is live!! I have finished the work on the UI, need to verify compatibility and test it today - if all goes well, expect a release in a couple of days at maximum.

updates: yesterday was a pretty bad day but somehow i managed to fix pretty much anything i think, i also raided successfully without any issue.

Only known bug is about actionbars, when you load the UI there will be a strange border around buttons, and if you display lua errors, you'll see one about rActionButtonStyler - Zork is already addressing this and it seems a new release of the addon is ready and in test phase, so give him the time to fix this.

For the rest, all seems working good.

Thank you 4.3 release is ready, just waiting for the deploy on servers so i can verify if there are compatibility issues - no more than a day or 2 for the new ui pack

Need to update screenshots

Last but not least, i'll check the issue you have - sounds pretty strange and it's definitely something i need and want to fix.

Just wanted to pop in and let you know that this UI is brilliant! Very clean, simple, and yet functional. I used it in raid all week and it was great. Only problem was that I couldn't change the number of buttons on the main actionbar through the config file. All the others were changing but not the main. I finally just did it manually in the lua files. Hope you keep this up to speed for 4.3, Cheers!

it's the stance bar - works for paladin auras, hunter aspects, warrior stances, rogues stealth and druid forms.

current release doesn't have it (mostly because i never needed it) but next release will have it since many of you requested it.

don't worry, just waiting for 4.3 and polishing the style and code.

Ah, last new thing: i revisited the party/raid style for dps layout, i expect some feedback for next release and just tell if you like more the old or the new style.
