Description
So iím creating a new ddo skin. Itís based on the DDO.COM site artwork. Why? Lets face it: d&d online artwork is OLD. Believe me when i say that there are people out there that donít play this great game because of the (bad) first impression.

Features:

* ddo.com like appearance
* improved tooltips (opaque tooltips with nicer borders)

This is a work in progress. Suggestions are welcome but please keep in mind that i'm doing this for myself. If you think you have a better idea for the skin, your are free to use it and enhance it further.

Thanks, Frosty, for your "Mod 8 UI Skin Art". It helped me alot.

If you like this skin, please say thanks.

Changelog:

v0.2.3
=====
* Added the "UI Title Bar Icon Update v2" patch by TiranBlade.
* New "+" and "-" icons
* Improved borders color
* New buttons (in progress)
* Improved resize grip color
* new dialog selection arrow color


v0.2.2
=====
* Added the "UI Title Bar Icon Update" patch by TiranBlade.

v0.2.1
=====
* Fixed the hireling bar (reverted no default). Thanks, TiranBlade.


v0.2
=====
* Blue pixels in some dialog boxes, near the window title fixed.

Thank you for your comment. About the font color, unfortunatly i can't change it. Let's hope the ddo devs add that functionality in future updates.

It's a great skin I like it so far can't wait to see what else you can do for it, the menu bar and health bar would be a nice change. There's 1 issue I noticed and because of the gold background on the windows when you buy/sell/repair at a vendor since the price numbers are white without any black background like inventory money listed it makes it really hard to read. Not sure is through the ui players can change the letter color for that or if your even able to do something maybe a darker shade right behind the price numbers or something.

woot!

Amazing job, eldrahir!

I'm a new DDO player and I was really turned off by the blocky plainness of the default UI, but yours is excellent! It reminds me of the LotRO UI.

Thank you for your hard work!

To let you know Eldrahir I have update my icon package, it is now the "Universal UI Icon Update v.2.0" Package and it now includes the updates for the Map Navigation Icon and the Mail Alert Icon. If you wish to update DDO.com Skin with it you can. Also for those looking for the update I have posted it here. Universal UI Icon Update v.2.0

Thanks,
TiranBlade

Regardless of whether you later skin the things I was referring to in my earlier post this is still the best skin for ddo I have ever seen and I will continue to not only use it but recommend it to my friends. Keep up the awesome work.

@EldritchEnigma
Thanks!

Let me start to say that there's some limitations and bugs (i think) on DDO skinning. One limitation is that i can't choose the text colors, so you will notice that white text against the interface background of this skin makes that text almost illegible. One bug that i found is on the right "border" of the tabs. On my skin, i made it like the left "border" of the tabs (i mean, rounded) but on DDO they appear vertical.

The main menu bar is another issue. I can't find where is the background picture of the menu bar. It was supposed to be the "hud_menu_bkg.tga" or the "hud_menu_bkg_f2p.tga" but looks like it isn't. Maybe Mod 9 changed it.

@TiranBlade
Sure, feel free to upload a patch to this skin.

Oh, new note, I'm making base icons for the Menu Buttons, they are turning out great, once I finished I'll let you know. If your interested I can upload them. I am making duplicates of my work so I can provide them for others to use, that way everyone has Mod 9(Current Icons) Instead of Mod 8 Icons.


UPDATE: I have finished the Icons and Applied it to your current UI and it came out really good, and now it has the lastest "Character Sheet, Inventory, Quest Log, Adventure Log, Social, Main Menu, and DDO Store" Icons on the version I am using. I am going to try and find a way to upload them onto the site with the simple instructions on how to run them into your own UI so you can use them.

Great Job

First off I would like to say that this is an awesome skin. I will definitely be using this instead of the default ui from this point forward. On that note I really only have one problem with it, I would personally like to see the hotbars, main menu bars and health bar done in a style that meshes with the rest of the skin. This would really complete the over all look. Other than that great job on the skin over all. it's by far the best skin I have yet to see for ddo.

@TiranBlade

Sorry about that. It's fixed now. I'm using the "Mod 8 UI Skin Art" as a template, to build my skin. It seems that this template don't have the latest changes after all.

Eldrahir, you need to check on your settings for the hireling bar, when it appears it shows up as not lined up with the hireling commands and image at all.

Great stuff! It's a great visual upgrade for the existing interface.

Honestly, when I played EQ the interfaces would literally change the way you played the game. I think the DDO interface community is way behind that - which is sad.

At any rate - it's great to see someone with talent out there making an effort to un-frumpify the existing interface! Thanks for your hard work - and it really does look great!
