Description
...............Overview...............

The most recent EA Ithilien version uploaded June 13, 2017, makes a number of changes as noted below in the patch notes. Please leave a comment if there are any issues or feedback. Specific changes can be removed manually. The quest tracker flowers take a little getting used to, but they match the Ithilien portrait frame. I decided I'm fine with them for now.

Use the download button at the top right to get the new zip file. The links below are to old versions.

The Elven Adventuress UI joins beauty with functionality, re-casting the LotRO interface in shades of metallic gold, plum, pink, and burgundy. Visual motifs are of shells, leaves, stars, and Elven geographical locations. Elven Adventuress incorporates larger-sized mail, auction, and other panels. Remember that you will need to relog/restart to get them to display correctly.

This interface is sleep friendly! Recent scientific research shows that blue light at night (like in the default lotro interface) diminishes the healthy sleep chemicals in your brain. Try Elven Adventuress also with f.lux for Windows, which changes your screen colors at night to reduce blue light.

...............Patch Notes...............

Ithilien
  • Changes all basic year 1-10 portraits to Ithilien flower portrait, as cosmetic only. Other players will still see your chosen portrait.
  • Changes quest tracker buttons from coins to flowers. The pay-for-travel buttons are also still invisible.
  • Adds labels to the virtue panel thanks to Thurallor, and updates the background image to Galadriel's garden.
  • Updated background art for the auction house to show the auction house at Caras Galadhon, per feedback from PKCrichton.
  • The map frame is now invisible, the better to see the foliage. Enjoy!


...............Credits...............

Thanks to Thrashfinger for Larger Auction Panel v1.5.1, which was integrated into Elven Adventuress for enhanced auctioning, and thanks to Firefern for the larger Dressing Room and Mailbox.

Thanks to JappMe (SoM Ivy by Halvitur) for the original learning template over which I intended to write all new files. Some non-descript vestiges of the basic original interface, such as tab treatments, may still exist in some form in the final or subsequent versions of this UI and should be credited.

WickedMouse deed log tabs were removed in this version of EA UI.

...............Terms of Use...............

Modifications for personal use only. Otherwise, please comment or PM me.

...............Installation Instructions:...............

Download the skin and extract the files to the correct path. Create folders if necessary. The final path for custom interface folders should be something like:

C:\Documents and Settings\ (username) \My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\ui\skins\EA Rohan

Remember that in order to see the re-sized mail, auction, and other panels, you may need to restart the game. It should be ok to overwrite the files of your existing installation. Sorry I haven't made this super-friendly.

Refer to the help files at LotROInterface.com if you have issues. To activate the interface, log into game and go to the "Options" menu (press escape, click options). Open the "UI Settings" menu, scroll to "Misc", and pick the interface in the "Current User Skin" dropdown field.

EA Ithilien Notes

Here is a quick FAQ on the Ithilien update, since I rarely check this site, or this email.

I don't like the Ithilien frame. How to fix?

Edit the SkinDefinition.xml file in the EA Ithilien folder using any text editor and delete lines 40-57 referring to the northithilien_flora_tga graphic.

I don't like the tracker flowers. I want the rings back.

Edit the SkinDefinition.xml file in the EA Ithilien folder using any text editor and delete lines 29-32 referring to the questtracker_quest_button,

I like the virtue panel labels, but not the art treatment, and two labels are missing. Can I have the labels without the garden?

You have failed at being an elf. Replace the traits_bg.tga graphic in the EA Ithilien folder with the traits_bg_copy.tga graphic. That should be what you are looking for. I spent quite a while on this panel, and ultimately I was not willing to work more to make anything better. The actual virtue icon placements are compressed upwards for example, creating asymmetry.

What about the trait tree tabs, collections tabs, alerts, etc.?

Originally I did the deed log tabs, but then Turbine kept adding more tabs, and we didn't have the graphics for months after each update. So it was a mixed situation that dragged on, and you had to keep going back and updating. I'd rather have things consistent and tidy during long periods. If I could easily sit down and reskin just the trait tree panel, I would, but I found it difficult originally, and haven't had the interest to go back.

Glad to hear you are back. Look forward to an update.

Don't forget fixes to the mounted combat windows and anniversary portraits

Since I'm playing LotRO again, I plan to do a small update soon, at least of the vitals display error. Sorry for this longstanding issue that has been worse since this last anniversary, I'm sure.

I can say that Adobe supposedly changed the way TGA files work. So when I went to update files last year, I seem to remember I couldn't use Photoshop CS6. I had to boot up my old computer and do it with Photoshop 7, which is how I originally made the interface. Thank you Garan for offering a solution. If I were suggesting a graphics program alternative to Photoshop to anyone in general, the consensus is that Gimp is the best free alternative at the moment. Good luck with your efforts! Hope this helps.

I use Paint.NET - it is free and very easy to use.

Just a note: I became aware tonight of the missing graphic when you mouse over the mounted combat vitals. This is due to an extra line in the SkinDefinition.xml file. If this is bothering you before I upload the next patch, simply use a text editor (I use Notepad++) to remove this line from the SkinDef file in the EA Rohan folder:

<Mapping ArtAssetID="VitalPortrait_Roll" FileName="rohan/VitalPortrait_Roll.tga"></Mapping>

And thanks for the note JMasher82! ^ Glad you like the interface.

thx again for this skin, but on this last update, a lot of the small icons that had blue background are now red, was by design or a glitch?

if your not sure what i mean, turn on the network connection, its normal blue, after this update its red, and there other ones that like horse xp on quest. just wierd
This was by design, to match the toolbar. There are only two firm design rules in the interface: turn everything silver into gold, and turn everything blue into some shade of red. The color adjustment formulas to convert LoTRO silver and LotRO blue are at the top of the included XML file.

If you don't like those red alert icons (I can see someone thinking red must be bad, haha), remove the following lines from the SkinDefinition.XML file in a text editor (the file is in the main EA Rohan folder):

<Mapping ArtAssetID="alert_connectionbad" FileName="rohan/alert_connectionbad.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="alert_connectionbad_limited_visibility " FileName="rohan/alert_connectionbad_limited_visibility.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="alert_connectiongood" FileName="rohan/alert_connectiongood.tga"></Mapping>
<Mapping ArtAssetID="alert_connectionugly" FileName="rohan/alert_connectionugly.tga"></Mapping>

And any other lines that say "alert" are likely also in that same bank of icons.

Really nice and so quick too! I thought about that level thing on npcs later. All the portraits and frames look good now. I haven't found anything yet that doesn't look right. I'll be sure to let you know if I do though!

Keep up the good work, this is a great-looking UI. Hats off!

This is great! Wow, it looks so good! Thanks for all the effort. I've only noticed a couple of things, really not that glaring, but here they are:
I uploaded another version (2.6). I think I've got a handle on these portraits now (see the patch notes above.) As far as the levels not showing, I played with the images a little bit and decided the numbers themselves just aren't showing. I clicked over to the default LotRO interface and they aren't showing there for me either on the same NPC's. Is that the way it looks for you too?

Thanks *so* much for the feedback and poking me to get this fixed. Hope it's working for you now.

The target portrait still has a little of a clipped graphic top below it.

This may be by design but I noticed that targetting an npc shows no level.

Thanks for fixing this up so quickly. I really like showing the class in the portrait now and, of course, the bag numbers instead of black spots are a big deal!

I spent tonight solving most of these problems, I think, and I've uploaded a new version (2.5). I made sure to test a small fellowship this time as well as targets around the city areas, but again I was kind of in a hurry to wind this up. I continue to be cranky towards Turbine for various reasons both related and unrelated to interface modding.

So there may still be target-type images tiling. I worked with Photoshop all night, and I don't play LotRO at the moment, and I didn't run through the landscape and dungeons looking for more errors. If anyone identifies a problem while playing, please help out and leave a comment, and I'll get back to fix it. Hope the toolbar looks okay. I might work on it more, and if so, it will end up as a one-file patch.

Enjoy!
