Simplistic Unit Frames

This project is experimental.

This project is only experimental and may change drastically between now and when it comes out of experimental status. It may even be disapproved once that happens, worst-case.

Default Layout

This will not be updated

Nevcairiel and Antiarc will be taking Shadowed Unit Frames over. I believe they handle things better than me.

    @Dreamflow: Those options are working as intended. Try STRG+A for the code.

    @fikasz: Colorchanging is a low priority. You can shorten it by reducing the priority slider. Unanchoring is a 100% no because of how its coded.

    I love it. Set it up as I had SUF set up earlier. So happy you picked that up. WIll there be a chance to edit eclipse bar in someway? Like change colours/make it the lenght of mana/hp bar, unanchor it?

    I just installed SUF and comming from Pitbull 3.0 I liked the config, but I need to point out some stuff:

    -Can't color power by power color; -Can't choose aura horizontal/vertical (by row or column) growth; -Can't anchor the text to the UF only to a bar, so if a target gets combo points and I have text anchored to the health bar the text moves (at least by unlocking the UF this happens); Coloring health also doesn't work on Focus, ToT and Pet at least; Export needs a auto select feature, it's impossible to copy paste the code.

    Overall good job! And hoping to see these small isues fixed.

    Aviana, do you have plans to update Shadowed Unit Frames AuraTracker? This was the sole reason I switched to Shadowed UF so long ago.

    @catbeef: Pitbull 4 has the same problem with the pet happiness indicator. Blizzard most likely has changed something there as well.

  • Avatar of catbeef catbeef Oct 13, 2010 at 20:29 UTC - 0 likes

    Potential issue with the pet happiness icon, I tamed a sexy pink Tallstrider and fed him some delicious berries, but after five berries and lots of mend pet he was still very unhappy!

    (Pet Happiness has 3 ranges, unhappy 0-350, content 0-350 then happy 0-350. Feeding your pet increases happiness by 350 (I think, as I've always managed to maximise happiness in two feeds). I am terrible at explaining.)

    I reloaded my UI and the happiness had changed to a big green smiley face, so perhaps there is something to look at there - didn't get any errors on my end unfortunately and the addon that used to show me accurate pet happiness (the actual number rather than just a very vague icon) is no longer working for me, so I can't tell if perhaps my pet was just getting happy incredibly slow and did so during my reload or whether it's an actual issue.

    But thanks again for keeping this project going :)
