v1.4 New graphical additions!
 
Description


==================================================
The is an almost complete skin of the UI, using the same style from the action bar I recently uploaded.

I decided to try for a full skin, and this is the result!
It's not quite finished yet, and there are some tweaks that are necessary, but I believe it's still finished enough for a release.

1.4 Is here! Many new additions including:
- 2 New variations of the Action bar (a 3 tiered Mini version, and a 4 quickslot biggun!)
- Tabs / Buttons / and many other reskins, due to Aalweins great contribution!
- Various Graphical tweaks and retouches.
- Xml fixes
and probably other things which I can't remember!

1.41 is a quick update that has added in the original hotbar and close buttons which I accidentally left out! Sorry for the inconvenience caused!


Credit goes to AncientWolf for his great Fenrir skin that I used as a template for creating mine, and also to Aalwein for his large contribution with red graphics that helped save me a lot of time!. (Wow that rhymed)
I also give thanks to everyone who has helped me with coding etc.

==================================================

To install:

This is important!
I've created this skin using the resolution 1280 x 1024
If you use a different resolution, please do the following (credit to AncientWolf for working this out )

-1: Unzip the file to My Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/
(I've included the ui/skins folders)
-2: After unzipping the file, locate the "Elaborate_mini by Trottimus" folder (ui / skins /)
-3: Next, find the SkinDefinition.xml file, right click it and select Edit.
-4: This should open up notepad with all the coding inside.

Near the top you should find this:

Quote:
<PanelFile ID="toolbar">

<Element ID="ToolbarField" X="340" Y="879" Width="600" Height="145" Detach="1">
<Element ID="ToolbarFieldMain" X="0" Y="0" Width="600" Height="145"></Element>
<Element ID="LevelMeter" X="90" Y="121" Width="422" Height="30">
<Element ID="LevelMeterFill" X="2" Y="12" Width="422" Height="6">
<Element ID="LevelMeter_BonusMeter" X="0" Y="0" Width="422" Height="6"></Element>
</Element>
The section in red is the bit you need to change (Don't modify anything else!), so firstly figure out what resolution you're running the game in (easily obtained by going into options > graphics. E.g. 1024x768, 1280x1024, etc.)

Now you'll need to replace the numbers that are highlighted in red.
(It may seem daunting, but don't worry it's not so bad)

For X= Take the width of your resolution and divide the number by 2 then subtract 300 from the result, replace this number with the current one.
(e.g. 1280 / 2 = 640, 640 - 300 = 340)

For Y= Take the Height of your resolution and subtract 145 from it, and replace this number with the current one.
(e.g. 1024 - 145 = 879)

Now, make sure you save it by selecting File > Save. Ensure that you do this, and don't select "Save As" Otherwise you may save it as something other than a .xml file (Meaning the skin just won't work)

If however you use 1280 x 1024 like me, then you don't need to do anything! three cheers!

Now you can load up the skin like normal:

-5: Load up the game, Press Esc to open the menu, and find Options
-6: Go to UI Settings on the right hand side, and scroll all the way down.
-7: In the drop down list entitled "Current
user Skin", select Trottimus's Elaboration or Trottimus's Mini Elaboration
-8: It should be loaded, enjoy!
-9: If it looks a bit funny, and/or you're seeing strange blue squares, log out and then log back in for the UI to update.

==================================================

Version History:
-1.41: Put back in the original action bar, and the close buttons
-1.4: 2 new bar variations (3 row mini-bar and a massive 4 slot chunky bar!), various graphical additions, xml and visual tweaks / fixes.
-1.3: Released the first mini-bar variation, which has 2 rows of slots instead of the normal one.
- Added new graphical elements, mainly for selections (e.g. Vendor, Skills, Quest Backgrounds)
- Various tweaks to the original Mini-Bar (Alpha channel clean up, so that the edges around the bar look neater and fade out correctly)
- Fixed a graphical problem with the border, the top portion is now the correct weight.
-1.2: New Mini Action bar! Included with the
latest file
-1.1: Released.

==================================================

Things in the works:
- If there are any visible problems with the current UI, or any additions I will make, I will do it as soon as possible, so give me feedback!
- Taking a break for a bit! and waiting for the next patch! (ui scaling)

Want to see something included? Post a comment with your thoughts!
I'm more than open to any suggestions.

==================================================

my creations. That would make me very happy indeed

Hey Brode and BlackKnight6667,

Thanks for your interest in the UI and also raising the issue with the skin definition file.

When I have some spare time i'll take a peek at the files and update them as necessary.

Apologies for not replying sooner, i'm very busy at the moment!

Thanks again,

Trottimus

(P.S: There's a mild chance that I might take a peek at all the new UI additions and put together a new interface, we shall see )

this doesnt line up right at all.

I tried using the one with the atk indicator in the middle with 2 hotbar on either side.

the skin definition shows Width="600" Height="145" Detach="1"> yet the image is
Width="940" Height="85" Detach="1"> I corrected that, then had to adjust the location of the toolbar field. However all the other stuff isnt lined up with the graphic. The Atck Indicator isnt where it should be.. the 1 hotbar isnt where it should be. Id love to use this because i like the style but it just no worky

I think the wrong skindefinition was included with the alternate layouts.

Looks great But:(

I can't get it working on my machine... I followed the directions exactly and on my res (1920x1080) It winds up all distorted, I'm using the max (double bar on each side).

BTW, Trot, I dunno if you did it purposely, but Elaboration Full doesn't have the code in the SkinDefinition.xml to include your new selection artwork.

Trot, if you check Revision 2 of the ScarletU ui, I've changed almost everything to the red tint. You can pull my art out to save you the time if you plan on continuing the color changes. I'll be pulling all your 1.3 art into ScarletU Revision 3.
