Version 2.3a New Vitals
 
Description
Description:

A wood and ivy inspired interface with 14 bottom bar configurations to fit almost any ui placement preference/screen size. Includes new movable bottom bars, as well as a left and right minimalist style.


Revision History:

Version 2.4 09/05/2007 - "PixelFix!" - Corrected misaligned level numbers on the vitals bars.

Corrected errant "eye" overlays on elite/signature vitals displays.

Added a few more box items with proper theme styling.

Version 2.3a 08/24/2007 - Corrected wrong "silver box" images. The gold
box frames were to be in a different release...

Version 2.3 08/23/2007 - Major Revision! With the release of Book 10, alot of assets (images) in the UI were opened up for modification. This release has over 50 new modifications, some of the highlights:

NEW Character, Target, Pet, and Escort vitals bars - now bringing the "wood" feel to a majority of the interface!

NEW "Gold" progress bars and various box outlines.

NEW "Low Res" Icons (player and target bar graphics)

ALT of work went into this release, thanks again for all of your votes and comments, ingame and out!

*Special Note: Some of the older "legacy" variations are now moved to their own archive! I will be updating these as well. This had to take place because with the new asset releases, file sizes for this suite (would) get quite large and eventually, surpass the file size limit here. Look for "Fenir Wood Legacy" if those are more to your liking!

Version 2.2 07/19/2007 - "Pixelfix!" (TM) - The small 1 pixel "ghosts" above the movable bars are gone. Dead. Kaput...

Version 2.1a 06/28/2007 - "Pixelfix!" (TM) - Corrected the wiggling combat eye graphic.

Version 2.1 06/26/2007 - ALOT of new things!

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 Wood MovC".

The original "toy" "Fenir Wood Mov" is there to show you how to think outside the box as far as system buttons go.

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

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 Wood Mov" "Fenir Wood MovL"

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 Wood MovR"

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.

Package Installation:

Exit the game.

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 Compact Wood

And Also: ..\My Documents\The Lord of the Rings Online\
\ui\skins\Fenir Wood

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!

Nice job.

I like this UI, makes the game so much more playable. The UI is in serious need of help and this just helped out alot. Thanks. Quick question though, instead of just making the bags invisible, is there a way to get rid of them all together? Also, I know this isn't the same thing that your doing here, but is there a way to scale all UI elements down to 80% of the original size, maybe 75%? With all the elements in the UI its hard to organize it to look cleanly, but with smaller parts, it would make pieces fit in corners and around other parts easier. Just a thought. I like your work and was just wondering if you would be able to do it, if not, it's understandable. Thanks.

We are severly limited at this time to what we are able to do with the ui; the various element sizes and positions are hard coded, with an exception of the bottom bar, which still takes up the space allowed for it regardless of the size we make it. Trust me, scaling is a big wish for us and you can expect us to capitalize on it once we are "allowed" to!

As for the bags, my delvings into the xml thus far have shown that if I remove the bag code all together, a blank area still appears on the screen despite the code being removed. For now all we are doing is filling the area with a transparent tiled image to compensate, otherwise the internal, default bag icons show up.


I'm releasing a "no bags no system icons" version today that allows you to place more use icon bars along the bottom... My biggest pet peeve is without scaleability, the chat box is hard to place and have it look good...

Thanks for the feedback!

Thanks for letting me know that. I guess it is a little bit early in the game for a good list off mods. Yours is a very good start, I'll keep an eye out and see what you do next. Thanks again.

The downside of what we can do currently is at lower screen sizes, its difficult to fit everything and keep the screen uncluttered. This last installment tires to help with that.

About all I have left to do is some minor "pixel" tweaks on the ivy on a few of the "Bar Wars: versions...

The low profile UI looks very nice. Keep up the great work, I think it will be my UI of choice so far.

Can you make one bottom bar like the 2 top ones in your screen without the ivy? I don't have a wide screen monitor and that ivy gone would be VERY helpful! Other than that I Love you skin!

Sure, I'll throw one up- I'll do it as an add on with instructions though- the package is getting a bit big and this would be considered a "minor" update.

@Pastime - I added those new versions to the package for you! (I had to tweak some ivy to my liking and popped those in with the version)

Enjoy!

Im not sure if im missing something but how do you add items to the new action bars you put off to the side. Theres 7 slots for each and on the bottom one the bags are still there so im not sure if theres a setting i need to do to be able to use those empty slots. I hope im makeing sence. Sorry if not. It's the "Bar Wars" set up that im wanting to use but the slots off to the side arent working how your screen shot is looking.

You need to go to your settings -> Quickslots and make sure you have the quickslot bars undocked, set to horizontal. Then when you use ctrl-\ you can place them.

I got into the habit of hitting "i" for inventory to make the bars and thier keytypes show up while moving them.

Hope that helps!

Ya I figured that was how to do it. What i dont understand though, is the bars have 12 slots on them but the new slots on the side only have space for 8. Where do you get 8 slot bars at?

There wasnt enough room on the bottom bar to fit all of them. 8 was better than none

I leave the other four hanging off the side and unused since I have a widescreen.
