Welcome and Introductions (Post Hello's Here)
Welcome everyone! We are very excited to be able to open the doors on LotROInterface.

I'll go ahead and start. Many of you will know me from our other sites, but for the rest of you:

Hi, my name is Cairenn. I am one of the founders and admins on our group of sites. We (myself, Dolby & Kudane) have been running interface sites for the MMORPG community for five years now. We currently have four sites with this being our fifth. You can find links to our other sites under the "Network" dropdown on the top bar.

Before anyone asks - yes I am an honest-to-goodness female. Still somewhat of a rarity in the MMORPG world I know, but there are a few of us around. :) I've been a fan of Interface "modding" ever since my introduction to it with EverQuest and my enjoyment of the communities that we create for those of like interests has only continued to grow over the years that I've been involved with it. I'm an even bigger fan of Tolkien's works and have been for as long as I can remember. I have worn out more copies of both The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Rings than I care to admit to. ;) I don't quite speak Sindarin but ...

Needless to say, when you combine Turbine, a company I have long admired, Interface modding, and nothing less than Tolkien's Lord of the Rings - if I got any more excited about this, I think I might explode.

So, enough about me. Everyone, please do feel free to say "hi" and introduce yourselves. :)

Dolby 01-25-2007 06:18 PM

Hello all, I'm Dolby. I take care of the site design, programing and servers for all our interface sites. I'm a big fan of LOTR and cant wait until this game launches!

Kudane 01-26-2007 11:07 AM

Hello, I am Kudane, the third member of the Admin staff here. I like Cairenn and Dolby am a huge LOTR fan and looking foward to this game very much.

A bit about me. Founded EQInterface in July of 2002, and along with Dolby and Cairenn helped make it the most successful EQ UI site. Now it is the only one out there, but that does not stop us from trying. EQ2Interface and WOWInterface followed and Both have become leaders in their games for dependable UIs without viruses and keyloggers

Soooo we look forward to our 4th home-run site. Turbine has been really good to us so far and we forsee good things for all in the future!


Itanius 01-28-2007 05:00 AM

Hello my name is Itanius, and I'm addicted to UI modding. I've been a life-long fan of Tolkien's work and I'm eagerly anticipating LotRO. I hope it will replace my current MMO addiction (WoW) and be a long-time companion in and of itself.

/wave :cool:

Cairenn 01-28-2007 05:29 PM

Welcome Itanius. First one to discover our stealth opening. ;)

Hey, congrats on the promotion! :)

mojo420 02-01-2007 04:41 PM

Greetings :)

Im new to the whole modding ui thing can anyone fill me in :)

Lotro rules!

Cairenn 02-01-2007 10:40 PM

Hi Mojo420, welcome to the site.

What do you want to know? How to actually create custom Interfaces, or how to use ones created by other people?

Realize that we can't actually give you any specifics for LotRO yet as it is still in Closed Beta and thus NDA (non-disclosure agreement) rules apply, but a general overview of Interface customization as seen in other games can be discussed.

Bigleon 02-02-2007 01:18 PM

Hey Y'all this is bigleon Represent'n Lol. Actully i'm a honest Newb to UI Editing, but hell it sounds like fun.

Honestly Big UI Changes I would like to try, is a "Auto Emoter" So I could have a few select bars for emotes say on right or left side of screen, click it and it emotes to slected players. Cause honestly if i'm gonna get any of those high amounts for special things I'm gonna need it. Also, you think we be able to pull of UI's like those used in wow. (Not auto casters) but as far as UI perforamce upgrades you get what i'm say'n? Yeah i'm abuse 'n oh well. Also another question while i'm at it. How come we can't use our custom pic for Avatar? Sorry i'm a ranter.

OH one more thing, I a Player on Brandywine Server, Kinship - DarkTemple My name is Abigale.. yeah i play chick players who cares lol.

Cairenn 02-02-2007 03:27 PM

Hi Bigleon, welcome to the site. :)

Bigleon 02-06-2007 01:48 PM

Thank you for the welcome.

ElvenWitch 02-12-2007 11:14 AM


ElvenWitch is what I usually go by but in LOTRO I'll be known as Jessmine.

I'm new to modding but it's something that i really want to get into. I'm currently trying my hand at modding a phpbb that I'm setting up for my friends but want to get into interfacing for the game as well.

My biggest drawback is that I'm not very artistic. So, I'm curious if that would be a problem or if there are ways around that?

Anyhow enough about me lets start seeing some of the mods :) No more NDA posting time YAY!!!

Cairenn 02-12-2007 11:16 AM

Welcome ElvenWitch/Jessmine. :)

I'm quite sure there will be folks that will be willing to help you out with graphics work. Collaborations are great things. :)

And yeah, I can't wait for the mods to start going up too! *bounces*

Ravenhall 02-12-2007 12:50 PM

I'm a veteran modder of other games (DAoC, balh blah) and I've been in beta since Beta 1 of LOTRO. I'm going to be posting some interfaces I've created over the next couple of days. I'm glad they finally lifted the NDA.

Bigleon 02-12-2007 01:12 PM

I know, I'm so excited to see what comes up. I'd love to test skins.

Ghil 02-12-2007 01:21 PM

hey :) I follow modding of MMOs for a great while but never actually got to modding myself. but this time, I'll be trying :)

Cairenn 02-12-2007 02:25 PM

Hi Ravenhall. Looking forward to seeing what you've already got on the go. :)

Welcome Ghil. You should give it a try, modding is fun! :)

stseibert 02-12-2007 02:25 PM

Hello, sweet first one on the 3rd page. What do i get?

Cairenn 02-12-2007 02:27 PM

*Chuckles at stseibert* Looks like you've got it figured out pretty well. ;) Welcome to the site. :)

HighbornDemonaSolace 02-12-2007 03:26 PM

I am brand new to all of this. A good friend of mine pointed me towards this site. I too have been in LOTRO SOA since Beta 1. I can't wait to see what shows up here. No skill in skinning myself but that might be because I have never tried.

Ghil 02-12-2007 03:43 PM

modding is basically making changes to interface to best tailor to your needs, by adding options, information, reskinning the UI, etc...

Cairenn 02-12-2007 03:50 PM

Welcome to the site HighbornDemonaSolace. :)

bushidow 02-12-2007 06:28 PM

Welcome bushidow :)

Kassel 02-12-2007 09:02 PM

Howdy all,

Been using UI Mods for most games for some time. Never attempted to mod on my own, but I sure appreciate all the time and effort put in by those of you that do. Never really expressed my thanks before, but better late than never!



Cairenn 02-12-2007 10:37 PM

Hey Kassel, welcome to the site. Aye, interface authors sure make all our games so much more fun, don't they? :)

Tulwen 02-13-2007 11:30 AM

Cairenn 02-13-2007 12:04 PM

Frosty 02-13-2007 02:05 PM

Already approved Fantus. :) Great to see another mod author on the site, welcome! :)

Sindi 02-13-2007 05:26 PM
