    Description

    Hi Guys,

    This is an animated effect, please watch the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UccpT9ZBgY8

    This is a UI specifically for Moonkins using a lot of the WeakAuras 3D model objects to add animated spell effects into the DPS bars section. It also has a kind of custom Balance power bar. Gotta love WeakAuras. And Stuf. Best addons ever :-)
    __________________________

    Below are some of the UI files. It's not a proper UI "release", so I won't be updating it, supporting it, or helping to fix it. Sry about that. I'd rather work on some new UI ideas and my hunter's PvP UI.

    Just the WeakAuras files:

    I am always amazed what you do with WeakAuras. But I've a question: Are all timer bars made with WA?

    Except of that an UI with love for details, what I really, really like. Only thing what really bothers me is that the clock is taking one third of the map. That's not so good.

    I think the cooldown bars at the bottom on your info panel are nice.. I know I will use this as a small inspiration when I start making a new UI (and new oUF layout).

    All the bars, the balance bar and the cooldown bars are WeakAuras. And so is the Cooldown pulse style icons you can see in the video a bit.

    I'm not a fan of minimaps in general. I use the SexyMap HUD mode when farming, but when it's small, I never look at it. I made a UI once with no minimap at all... and didn't miss it :-) In a 3rd person game where you can zoom out loads, I just don't see the point of it. So I slapped the clock on it :-P

    really awsome, I LOVE that balance power bar! I rolled a boomkin alt when I saw your first eclipse ui, but this one just made that char my main lol.
    I was thinking about using weakauras to do something fancy to track holy power with my pally, I'm not a big fan of the addons i came across, they're all either too simple or too tacky. Just out of curiosity, how would you do the layout for that?

    I'm impressed by your UIs here on WoW UI Gallery but I have one concern, putting the raid frames tucked away in a corner. Have you ever considered making an UI where raid frames are more centered?

    Oh, HUD mode? Have to look at it. Yeah you're right, normally you don't need it. There are some small occasions, like markings on map while raiding or so. But that's it.

    And all bars are WA. That's kinda cool... I think I'll try that out myself. I hope I don't crash my whole WA config by importing yours :D

    As a dps player, you don't need the raid frames centered. :)

    I do when it's a healing UI:

    For DPSing it's as Lyn says, better not to clutter the screen with other people's jobs.

    having said that i need to figure out a way to switch to centralised Grid for offspec healing with this UI.

    Is the font for your combat text in the sharedmedia folder? I haven't installed the UI yet to test everything but I will check it out soon.

    Well, been trying to use just your Stuf UF's and WeakAuras but while the WeakAuras are working, I can not get Stuf to work at all.
    It just goes to default Blizzard UF's for some reason even though I've put the right files in the right folders (I do pretty much know what I'm doing with this stuff).
    Not sure which files I might be missing.

    They aren't. I just realised that the Fonts folder is outside of the Interface folder.
    Here is a copy of mine: http://www.freefilehosting.net/fonts_2
    Unzip and put the "Fonts" folder into the root level of your WoW directory, replacing the fonts folder already there. This replaces ALL default fonts with Helvetica Bold.

    I just updated the youtube info. Thanks for the catch.

    I'm not sure, but could it be that you installed them as if they are for all characters and mine is set to per individual character? It's a checkbox on the global tab of Stuf. So the files go into the directory with a character name near the end of the path.

    Thanks for the fonts folder though I thought it was Gotham :)

    I did try them in the per character folder because I noticed that they were configured that way but they still wouldn't work. I'll try again when I have more time to look at everything. I'd really like to use JUST your UF's with the WeakAuras in my UI (I have the rest of my UI just the way I like it) and see how I like it.

    Thanks for sharing. It's great to play around and learn new stuff even when I'm not going to always keep using it.
