ColdUI  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 5.4.2
by: Coldkil [More]
I have frozen my WoW account since no new content on the horizon. Planning to return for future patches (6.0 on the worst case if Blizz actually plans to drive SoO for another 5 months or so). Just to let you know that i don't plan to abandon the UI.

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.
Cooldowns are a "same of above" version of OmniCC.
Runebar is a "same of above" edit if nibRunes.

HOW TO INSTALL:
- Make a backup of your Interface and WTF folders, then move/delete them from WoW directory.
- Unzip the archive.
- Put the folders in the ZIP archive into you Interface/Addons folder.
That's it!

ADDONS LIST:

That seems more a bug on your side. I use the local-layout.txt file (you can find it in your wtf folder for every character) which is automatically build by Blizzard to remember frame positions between sessions. If the file doesn't exist or is corrupted and doesn't load for any reason, then the frame defaults will be loaded.

Surprisingly enough the work of separating plugins from layout has gone pretty well - the ColdMisc addon is done and working. Also managed to redo the bags and ColdBags is finished.

Still to do: oUF_ColdGrid, which is the first thing i'm going to tackle.

The new layout is still in the experimental phase - i don't even know if something like that would be truly usable. If i end doing something polished, i'll upload it as an optional addon like i did for ColdDBM.

EDIT: by the way, i fixed the stupid bug that made the pet frame non draggable - entirely my fault, i called the pet frame and the pet actionbar with the same name so it was going wild.

big news

Just updating you people on this: ColdUI is going for a huge overhaul. Basically i will go deeper with the current train of thoughts and will strip everything out from oUF_Coldkil which isn't related to the layout and unitframes themselves.

Why this?
Simple put, i had a lot of fun messing with the layouts back in time, now that fun is partially lost because everytime i touch something, something else completely unrelated goes wild. So, as i've done with actionbars and nameplates, all the things like minimap, chat, datatext, etc will go in this separated addon called "ColdMisc" (sorry, couldn't come up with a better name). This way i can work on other layout projects and even users will have a much better time if they decide to break it for any reason.

Why i (the user) should be interested on this?
Because the overhaul will very likely require a complete reinstall of the UI - that means redoing the WTF folder. Actually, the issue shouldn't be that critical because in the dreaded folder i only store the visibility of actionbars and the farme positions. In the worst of the cases, you would need to do a /bm to show back actionbars and move back in pace frames, but i felt it was worth saying it before i release teh new ColdUI version.

Also: healer raid frames just suck. I tried my best to make them work within the oUF layout, but they're a pain to manage. Since i don't want healers to hate me for that, i'm going to separate them from the layout and i will make a oUF_ColdGrid stand-alone addon. This way healers will have the love they deserve, i have had a lot of support from many of them to make the raid frames usable, and still i don't feel i've repaid them for their help.

Beware, this may take quite some time. Still, was worth posting and let you know i'm more active on the UI than ever before.

BONUS ROLL: i'm working on an experimental ultra minimal layout too. God, so much fun!

EDIT: double-checked the code. The line in your error shouldn't do basically anything because it's a part i never implemented - i just left the code for the future.

Try this if you feel confident - in the ColdPlates addon, core.lua, go to the fixFactionColor function and comment/delete the lines with the statements f.isFriendly (to comment, just add a "--" at the start of the line without quotes). Then run the addon again and tell me how it goes.
alright thank you

for the castbar.. i looked everywhere except the lib file

Edit: I think your ui is broken, because the loot frame is not working too.
Strange, for me everything works.

for actionbars: type /bm and click on red buttons, they should appear. You need to do this if it's the first time you run the ui.

for loot frame: tbh, i don't do much with that aparte the reskin and new anchor. try to do a /fm, move it around and try if it's visible.

Sounds more a problem on your end, tough. Will check the code to be sure it isn't an ui issue.

bags

i'm aware of the bug on the bags script where there's a blue texture over every item that disappears mouseovering it and returns every time you reload the ui.

It was a long time ago that i said "bags need to be rewritten" and finally i've done it. In a few days a new release should be out, with the new ColdBags addon included.

hy, i'm still here!

I felt some "updates" were needed, basically i'm telling you ColdUI isn't abandoned, just i don't have much to update and summer and things

Don't worry, ColdUI will be ready for 5.4.
