Description
Since we are not allowed to change every UI-Element I've started to work on a redesign of the standard-interface. In a first step I've redsigned the mainbar. The changes are:

- removed menubuttons
- resized the levelmeter
- changed the position of the attack-indicator
- created a widescreen-version with two quickslot-bars and the attack-inidcator in the middle

I. INSTALLATION:

1. Unzip the package and move the folders "small_normal" and "small_wide" to "...\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\ui\skins"
2. You have to change two settings in the SkinDefintion.xml if you don't use a resolution of 1280x1024 (you can jump to step 3, if you use his resolution)
2. Start LOTRO and choose a skin in the interface-options
3. Restart LOTRO (won't work without restart)


II. CHANGES IN SKINDEFINITION.XML

1. Open the SkinDefiontion.xml in "..\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\ui\skins\Skin you want to use"
2. Look for the followning line:
Code:
Normal:
<Element ID="ToolbarField" X="410" Y="944" Width="580" Height="80" Detach="0">

Wide:
<Element ID="ToolbarField" X="128" Y="944" Width="1024" Height="80" Detach="1">
3. The bold values are important for you. There two simple calculations for the X- and Y-Values:

Code:
For X:
Your resolutionwidth / 2 - Letterboxwidth / 2

For Y: 
Your resolutionheight - Letterboxheight
The widths are 580 for small_normal and 1024 for small_wide. The height of both versions is 80.


III. EXAMPLE

If you want to use "small_normal" with a resolution 1024x758, this will be your calculations:

Code:
For X:
1024 / 2 - 580 / 2 >> 512 - 290 = 222

For Y:
768 - 80 = 688
Your line in the SkinDefinition.xml should now look like this

Code:
<Element ID="ToolbarField" X="222" Y="688" Width="580" Height="80" Detach="0">
For "small_normal" I recommend to use a slightly higher value X than the value for the absolut middle. This will move the mainbar a litte bit to the right which simply looks better.

Figured I'd post this in case anyone else was interested and was having any trouble adapting the mainbar to SoM. Its the wide bar with focus/fervor.

Code:

This is for 1920x1080, so adjust as needed the same as is described for the original skin.

Mmmh, I've checked the mainbar-image and it has a height of 80 pixels.
With a vertical resolution of 1050 you have to add 970 for Y!

If you have already filled in 970 for Y and it still doens't work, increase the value for Y until the mainbar fits with the edge of your screen.

Please post

<Element ID="ToolbarField" X="your value" Y="your value" Width="1024" Height="80" Detach="1">

from your SkinDefintion.xml.

P.S.: I hope you have changed the valus in small_wide and not small_normal

Well, this mainbar is for those who don't need these buttons and a complete mainbar or who prefer more free space on the screen instead of buttons, which are useless, when they prefer shortcuts. But thanks for the comment. Maybe I'll "reintegrate" the buttons in a third version.

P.S.: I use right click outside the chat window to switch betwenn the chat and the interface.
