Description
Description:

"Out of destruction, comes life..." "Rare Earth" was a afternoon attempt at translating a thought I had after seeing Mount Doom destroyed in Return of The King; Fast forward to a future time after Frodo and Sam destroy the One Ring....

A coal black lava background and ivy interface with 4 bottom bar configurations to fit almost any ui placement preference/screen size.

Revision History:

Version 1.5 - 07/19/2007 - "Pixelfix!" (TM) - The small 1 pixel "ghosts" above the movable bars are gone. Dead. Kaput...

Version 1.4 - 06/29/2007 - Corrected mysterious disappearing tab graphics in the "L" version. Rodents... Gofigure

Version 1.4 - 06/28/2007 - Added a new "in combat" representation of Sauron's Eye to remove the last remnant of other author's piecework. Alot of work went into this release, I hope you all enjoy it. (I'm horseless and almost level 40 at this point! Maybe I should start taking those donations... LOL!)

Added a new movable "centered" version of the minimalist bar- "Fenir RareEarthMC".

Added new movable "right" and "left" versions of the above with the combat indicator on top to further open up screen real estate - "Fenir RareEarthMR" and "Fenir RareEarthML" respectively.

Version 1.3 06/11/2007 - Added New "Minimal" Version by popular request.
Changed structure over to make future modifications easier.
New tabs, buttons and other various images to make the theme more "earthy"
Alot of adjustments to placement and image kb size.
Temporarily removed 2 versions for the above updates.

Due to issues with not being able to "reload" the UI, you will have to restart the client again after selecting these styles.

See below for instructions, the only movable bars are the ones listed above. (Each style's SkinDefinition.xml also has detailed instructions inside)


Instructions: PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!

"Fenir RareEarthMC" "Fenir RareEarthML"

Open the SkinDefinition.xml in Notepad (or your favorite editor) and look
for the instructions a few lines down regarding modifying this file.

You will see:

<!-- Edit the line below "ToolbarField" ONLY and set the Y="###" to your screen height size minus 95 -->
<!-- In this case my screen size is 1440 X 900; 900 minus 90 equals 810 -->
<!-- You can play with the X and Y Values but altering anything else is NOT recommended! -->

<Element ID="ToolbarField" X="5" Y="810" Width="516" Height="90" Detach="1">

<!-- Do NOT edit anything below this line! -->


Edit the value above using the calculation I set above and save it. (Make sure you save it as xml, NOT txt!

If you want to change the left to right positioning, thats the "X" value.

"Fenir RareEarthMR"

Same as above, but you MUST also set the "X" value. It's a little trickier.
My example from the xml file:

<!-- Edit the line below "ToolbarField" ONLY and set the Y="###" to your screen height size minus 145 -->
<!-- In this case my screen size is 1280 X 768; 768 minus 145 equals 623 -->
<!-- Next set the X="###" to your screen width size minus 480 -->

<!-- In this case my screen size is 1280 X 768; 1280 minus 480 equals 800 -->
<!-- You can play with the X and Y Values but altering anything else is NOT recommended! -->

<Element ID="ToolbarField" X="800" Y="623" Width="480" Height="145" Detach="1">


Its not hard if you think about it, just remember to restart the game after selecting one of these for the changes to take effect.

The remaining styles in the package require no special modification to the files.

Installation:

Extract all the files from the ZIP file making sure the option to "use folder names" is enabled; The folder on your computer you should select as the destination will be: ..\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\

You should see: ..\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\
\ui\skins\Fenir Rare Earth

And so on...

Launch the game

Once in-game, go to OPTIONS then choose "UI Settings" from the menu on the right, once there scroll all the way down to the bottom of the UI Settings page and you will find a dropdown list where you can choose the UI Skin to use for that character.

Notes:

Thanks to all for the support and in game feedback, I'm glad you all like the work. I cant wait till we get more id's/assets to mess with!

I just extracted the package without any problems with three different apps (WinZip, WinRar and 7-Zip), so I too think you need another unzip program.

If I may I would recommend IZArc wich is free and user friendly. Should you prefer better compression (when creating you own archives) I can really recommend 7-Zip and it's free too.

Hope it helpes!

Hmmm Just redownloaded it myself, dunno what to tell you.

Perhaps try getting winzip or some other archive utility and see what happens.

Exclamation Small issue with zip file.

I seem to be having an issue with the .zip file.

When attempting to extract said file (with WinAce), it is giving me multiple errors regarding inability to extract a fair amount of the files contained within.

Suggestions (as I'm new to the game, though I've following UI installation instructions to a T) and/or a fix (highly doubting this to be the case, as earlier versions reproduced the problem) would be greatly appreciated.
