Prankstars Elegant UI  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 3.0.8
by: Prankstar [More]


Prankstars
Elegant UI
Version 3


Improved default World of Warcraft Interface

With the release of Battle for Azeroth, I have also chosen to "go back to one's root". Meaning that the design of the UI will change and move back to a default WoW look.
But even though it's like default, it has various improvements - such as pixel perfect artwork, aligned artwork, bigger unit frames etc.

Consider Prankstars Elegant UI an improved default UI. But the layout is still the same as before, but no more Legion or Iron Horde artwork. Instead you can have the default look, or switch to a darkened look (almost black).

Contact me here, or on Reddit, for help or questions.

See more detailed images



How to install
  1. Browse to your World of Warcraft folder and backup your WTF & Interface folders
  2. After the backup, disable all addons (and then re enable as you need) OR delete the old WTF & Interface folders. This makes sure you don't have any other conflicting addons (such as bartender).
  3. Extract the WTF & Interface folders from PrankUI3.zip
  4. Copy Config.wtf from your old WTF folder into the new WTF folder
  5. Rename [RENAME TO ACCOUNT NAME] to whatever your account name is. You can find your account name from the old WTF folder
  6. Launch World of Warcraft and in your character screen, hit the button "Addons" in the lower left corner, and make sure all addons are enabled (even the outdated ones!)
  7. Login to a character and type "/prankui" (without the quotes) in chat to finalize the UI
  8. You're now ready to play. Type "/prankui" again to change layout if you want



How to use
  • You can easily add more actionbar buttons to the right of the screen if needed
  • Pr. default Skada isn't shown when solo, but you can toggle it on easily
  • The Bag bar and Micro menu is hidden until hovered over the corresponding buttons next to the main action bar.




FAQ
  • I can't find my Account name
    • It should either be a name, random set of numbers or "Wow1"
    • Default folder path: (C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\WTF\Account)
  • How do i make changes to the UI?
    • Just as you normally would. My setup addon only set some profiles in other addons.
    • If you want to make sure that your changes are shared across all your toons, you can make the changes directly in the "PrankUI" and "Default" profiles, and then when you use "/prankui" on new characters, they will inherit your changes.
  • Is this UI only for Warlocks?
    • No! This UI is for all characters
  • Can i use something else than Skada for damage meters?
    • Yes you can! But having the artwork to follow over requires some knowledge with kgPanels and simple LUA scripting

Hehe, nah sry. I dont think the UI should fit the character, but it should fit the content.
MAYBE if at some point theres new artwork available i would do more styles. But for now, it's Legion and Iron Horde =)

Great work with the UI, it fits Legion extremely well!

I have a quick question though:

Is any way to move the tooltip, I'd like to move it slightly left between the bar and Skada. I tried using TipTap, but the anchor doesn't want to cooperate.

Thanks for your time and keep doing what you do!

Love the setup but how do I stop this from happening
I can't get the photo to work. But if you follow that link it'll show you. My character nameplates are not filling the border.

First try and run /prankui again and select your ui style.

If that dosn't help:
Looks a little like that you have some other profiles in shadow unitframes. Could you type /suf in chat, and tell me what profiles you have under "existing profiles". It should have one called "Prankstars Elegant UI". If not there seems to be something off, and you should try reinstall the entire UI and follow the readme.txt even more carefully :P

Hope it helps you!

I just tested, and it works without a problem here.

Oh this looks wonderful! I'll have to try it out today. It reminds me a bit of a UI I played with back in wrath (AltUI (Blizzart) which has been abandoned since early Cataclysm) in that it makes excellent use of blizzard style art to make a UI that fits with WoW instead of pixelfont.

Quick question though, is there anything here that can be automatically updated? Or have you customized most of the addons so that an automatic update would break them?

I use addons in their natural state. Unless they push out a breaking change, nothing should change. I update all the time, and have only seen something break at next expansion pre-patch

Hey man, it's not really. Its a little confusing, but it's because of the actionbar addon Bartender.

It wont show your keybinds unless you keybind through their addon. Dont worry though, its very very simple to do. Type /kb in chat, to enter keybinding mode. Then you simply put your mouse on the ability/actionbar slot, and hit the key (or key combination) you want, and you have now keybound a key.

Look at this video i just found if you want a video description instead :P
