SnailUI  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.0.3
by: SnailCraft [More]

SnailUI

SnailUI is a pixel perfect UI, meaning everything is aligned perfectly. SnailUI skins almost everything, including the minimap, action bars, casting bars, etc. SnailUI is currently in a beta state, so there are probably plenty of bugs to be found. I would appreciate it if you reported them in the comments or through Twitter.

A lot of aspects of SnailUI can be changed via the in game interface options (or by typing /SUI or /SnailUI) or via the lua files themselves. This UI is also using !NoTaint to fix talent related bugs and Tuk's warlock bars addon as a temporary fix until oUF is updated. Should you need to contact me, I can be found via Twitter. (@1Snail)

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

Features

  • Fully supports any resolution (less than 1024x768 can look strange) and any multisample level
  • Theme based UI
  • Supports all classes and specs, changing based on what your current spec is
  • Some specific talents are supported (Such as removing pet bars if you have Grimoire of Sacrifice for Warlocks)
  • A lot of Healbot-esque features are supported such as health prediction
  • Very small and very fast
  • Hides a lot of frames that you do not need to see in combat to reduce clutter (Can be shown by clicking the 'Show Misc Frames' button at the top [requires you to hover over it first])
  • Widescreen action buttons (First time I have ever seen someone do this)
  • Easy central focused class bars to help you watch your character more easily (Get out of that fire!)
  • Easy to extend or create your own themes
  • All class bars are supported (Combo point bar, rune bar, etc.)
  • Automatically repairs your items when visiting a vendor
  • Automatically sells all gray items when visiting a vendor
  • Automatically releases when you die in a battleground
  • Action/item button cooldown text that is similar to OmniCC
  • Extremely lightweight dps/healing meter that also shows players of the the opposite faction and players outside of your group (Most pets can't be merged if the players are not in your group)
  • A lot of Blizzard frames are skinned (Bag, action bars, minimap, etc.)
  • Buff/debuff/cooldown timers for each class/spec
  • Dispellable debuff indicators for raid frames
  • Healing indicators for raid frames
  • Automatically rolls greed on green items
  • Automated garbage collector that periodically frees up memory
  • Chat filters to reduce spam

You can also stay up to date with the cutting edge versions of SnailUI by visiting its GitHub repository here: https://github.com/Snailsoft/SnailUI (The files here can change many times a day so it's not recommended to use this version of SnailUI unless you know what you are doing)

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

Creating your own theme

You can create your own theme for SnailUI by following this guide: https://github.com/Snailsoft/SnailUI...reating-themes

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

Installation

Read: SnailUI relies on both oUF and oUF_SpellRange, so make sure that these 2 addons are installed before continuing. To install SnailUI, just unzip the SnailUI folder into your World of Warcraft / Interface / Addons folder and you are good to go.

Alright guys, just released 0.4.2. I have a feeling that there will be a lot of bugs with the dps meter, let me know if you find any.

Also, healing is not included in the meter for this update as it is still being worked on, should be available in 0.4.3 along with some other goodies.

Ahh. Well don't stress yourself just for an add-on

People can wait. No point in putting yourself through stress etc just to push releasing an update today vs. a day or 2 later if you take your time

Anyway, I can't wait to see the new improvements.

Take care Snail!

Quick update: associating pets and guardians with their owners for this dps/healing meter is proving to be a giant pain. I was also having problems with keeping associated pets together when the user relogs or /reloads during the middle of a fight but I finally solved this problem.

Just about done with everything to do with guardians, pets should be done by the end of the day I think. I don't think healing will be in the meter at release but it will probably make it by the update after that.

This meter also records cross faction players/pets and players/pets outside of your group for world bosses. (Though a lot of times, pets will not be merged with their owners this way due to them not having their own unit frame)

This is also incredibly useful for arenas so that you can see who is doing mega burst and needs to be cc'd/burned down first. Anyway, this is what the changelog is looking like so far, probably the biggest update so far:

Code:
Version 0.4.2
- Many minor action bar/bag bugs fixed
- Fixed a bug where the bag frame was not being displayed correctly if you had less than 4 bags equipped
- Fixed a bug where opening a single bag would not open the bag frame
- Bag slots added to the bag frame
- Fixed a bug where debuffs weren't being colored according to your class
- Fixed a bug where buffs weren't being colored according to your class
- Fixed a bug where the clock wasn't being colored according to your class
- Extremely lightweight dps/healing meter added
- Cooldown text has been added to all action/item buttons (Similar to OmniCC)
- An option to color all frames based on threat level instead of just the raid frames has been added under the interface options
- Action buttons will now change based on if the unit is in range of the spell
- Action buttons will now change based on if the spell can be cast on the unit
- Fixed a bug where unicode names were not being displayed correctly
- Several blizzard buttons have been moved to the top of the screen
And these are my plans for 0.4.3: (None of these features have been started on yet)

Code:
Version 0.4.3
- The dps/healing meter now tracks healing/hps done
- The dps/healing meter can now be scrolled through
- Items are now automatically sorted in the bag frame
- Buff/debuff/cooldown timers for each class/spec added
- Bank frame added

The damage meter is being developed as part of SnailUI right now so it's not released. If you're referring to scrolling combat text in a screenshot, then yeah it was probably MSBT as I was using that for a while.

As for the arrow not working, I have noticed this as well. I think it's an issue with oUF and not SnailUI itself because I have been using the TomTom arrow even before I started on SnailUI and it worked but once I started using oUF it stopped working. (Well, the arrow worked but was not accurate and the distance indicator was non functional)

I would suggest reporting the bug to haste in the oUF section on the forums.

Damage output

Hey, I saw your damage output on the bottom- Is that through another addon like MSBT or is it part of snail?


Also, Zygor's pointer doesn't work with Snail- Has anyone seen a way to fix this?

Most stuff is generated once you are already loaded and in game but that's actually better because it decreases loading times. It can also use less memory because things are generated when they are needed and not all at once.
Ahh... makes sense. Was just a curious thing for my own knowledge

I think the actual player frame is static tho. ie: SnailPlayerFrame or something similar.
They show up as an address with /fstack and the like because they are mostly local variables to improve performance and aren't named.

Just curious.

They actually said 0S like how buffs do on the default UI but after realizing how dumb that looks, cooldowns now appear like:

Code:
1H
3M
45
30
12
4
3
2
1
0
Which looks a lot better, also found a bug related to reloading when you have an ability already on cooldown which I wouldn't have found if you didn't make this post so thanks for that.

As for the chat, it doesn't really make that much of a difference. Most sentences appear on 2 lines rather than 1 now but the font is small enough that 6+ lines are visible at any one time.

Buff/debuff/cooldown timers most likely. OmniCC-like cooldown text functionality is done too.

Looking great Snail!

What's next on your agenda once the meter is completed? (Just curious)
