Discussion Thread


Dark Steel is a basic custom UI made from the remnants of DarkerBoxed, with a bit of Darker2.0 and DarkScrolls thrown in.

Same information as DarkScrolls and Darker2.0.. just updated and new graphic style. (will add more in here later.. must get it up before I get linched!)

Updated fully with bags and bank

What this Custom UI does
  • Removed the dependency for most adjoining windows. More separate windows to move where you want them.
  • Separate Player stats from the Defensive Target for easy layout of your choice.
  • Changes default size of all bags, inventory, banks and more.
  • Changed the default font size for pop up / mouseover windows. (For what the server will allow)
  • Adds in the drop in box for the Market Exchange Broker.
  • Removes the "extras" from the ui such as added graphics in the player stat window, group
  • window and offensive window.
  • Adds in the option for a horizontal group window.
  • Consists of 6 horizontal Hotbars and 2 vertical.
  • Adds in the HUD interface to choose your options you would like to have displayed in game.
  • ie: Combat, Stats, clock and more!
  • Adds in a Healer Helper hotbar for heal and buffs abilities.
    -Double click HealerHelper Member names to view their buffs
  • Smaller and more abilities on each page.
  • Quest window adjusted to fit more quests in visible line.
  • Quest listings include Level and sphere
  • Ability to organize your quests by Level and Sphere.
  • Display of 36 parlay cards per page.
  • Smaller Parlay table
  • Updated XML to current for Vanguard.
Extras: To replace any of the windows,
1) Open the folder with the name you wish to replace the windows
2) Copy all files in that folder
3) Open the Windows folder
4) Paist and replace the files
Example:
You want the default Quest log as seem in the Default UI
You will do the following:
1) Open up the folder named "Extras"
2) Go into the folder named "DefaultQuestWindows"
3) Copy all files in that folder
4) Go back to the folder named "Windows"
5) Paste the files (replace the ones currently in the "Windows" folder
That is it. Do this for what ever files you would like to change.
There are Four files you can change around:
1: Quest Window (book)
Quest Window (Darker2.0 style)
2: Guild Social Window (Default UI)
Guild Social Window (Darker style)
3: Bag Size (Default UI size)
Bag Size (Darker Size)
4: Market Windows (Default UI- With LG)
Market windows (Without LG)

Hello. Anyone still around?

First off I love this UI!

I just have ooonnnneeee question. How can I change my inventory to not be so small? I tried the whole replacing files thing and it didn't work out too well. Tried the in game window scale and it doesn't stick.

Any thoughts?

Updated Inventory file + test file

Here are both Updated Inventory and the Test inventory files..

The test inventory has the Quick buttons for the bags on the lower right hand side. Do note, that there is a small glitch yet that I am trying to fix. Additional commands are over riding the click options. So right click to open bags from the quick buttons. Left click will pick up the bag. IF you want to use the Test bag, just remove the "-test" from the file name and then replace the current one in your Dark Windows folder.

To use the updated standard version, just replace the current file in the Dark Windows folder.

VGUIInventory.xml (3.8 KB, 0 views) VGUIInventory-test.xml (9.0 KB, 0 views)

-- Will be working on the action bars for you as well.

Crafting table.. im not sure what you mean about it being dark. I am looking at the progress bars.. both the green and the blue on the very bottom and not seeing a difficulty .. let me know what ones you mean that are too dark for you to read so I can adjust them correctly.
I wasn't very clear in my post

Here is the crafting window... my problem is that i cant see how much i have left to do on one action and where the new action starts (in the red circle).

What i suggested was making the background (red x) abit lighter so you can see the black backdrop of the green progress bar abit more clearly.

It's just a minor issue, after crafting for god knows how many hours with the new UI i've gotten quite used to it... i still can't see it properly, but im getting good at guessing

Thank you for confirmation! I've been meaning to reset the harvesting elements back to DarkSteel to see, but my time is quite unpredictable and I always forgot about it by the times I started playing.

Great work Sarrene, I love tinkering with UIs and you've given me the opportunity to do that! I'm learning a lot.
Well said, I concur!

Harvesting Showing: (Question: Is this your harvesting UI? I do not think Carly Harvesting Mod was integrated by me properly?)


--------------

You got it right, that's Caly Harvesting Window.

I've also done a similar thing to you, adding MaddyCraft, MiniCards and Caly's.... I went a bit further and put in ElisarShortCurtPanel and some elements from DroxUI (I like the cleaner look of the action bars and they're a little bigger).

Other than that I do love the Darker series of UIs!

One thing to keep in mind is that the index.xml is pretty much identical for each version so you can just switch around the texture files too.

Great work Sarrene, I love tinkering with UIs and you've given me the opportunity to do that! I'm learning a lot.

Love this Interface!

Using this interface as a main addon, I then manually combined MaddyCraft 2.12, Carly Harvesting Window, and MiniCards Diplomacy UI Mod into it. Was going to mod InfoMap Advanced into it however, I see you have it already built in, cheers!

Thank you very much for this Mod, hope you are able to continue to keep it updated as I really love it!

Bug Report: In the in game settings for this mod, the Main Window of "Window Controller" always seems to disable itself upon signing back into the game.

Suggestions:
  1. I'd love to see the Mini Crafting Bag bar expanded to also include the Tackle-box, Harvesting Bag, Diplomacy Case, and Diplomacy Shoulder Bag.
  2. Might be best to include a custom User.ini file. I spend quite a bit of time trying to build mine for this mod. Ended up having to go find another mod that used the G15 keys and copy over those lines in the file and change the key numbers. Was quite frustrating as I had no clue what I was doing when I started. Only knew that I didn't have any of the keybindings present in game for all the hotkeys. Then after I finally got the code to enter, I found that many of my aliases were gone, like pet attack.. so I had to then figure out how to manually add those back and so on and so forth. heh
  3. Would love to be able to resize, both vertically and horizontally, the XP Bar!
Figured I'd also give a couple screens of how I have this UI set up on a resolution of 1680x1050 with the modded in addons I listed above.

Mail box is semi fixed (Seems the read mail is server side just like the rent upkeep ballence). What I did was just add/change the background image to a steel grey/blue colour to semi match the rest of the ui.

Hotbars... I will be added in larger hotbars for those that want to replace the small default ones.

Crafting table.. im not sure what you mean about it being dark. I am looking at the progress bars.. both the green and the blue on the very bottom and not seeing a difficulty .. let me know what ones you mean that are too dark for you to read so I can adjust them correctly.

Will be uploading the moidified version today.

Minor issues

Awsome UI Sarrene!

Found some minor issues though... when opening the mailbox i cant see the sender or the topic on the mails i've already read...

The background of the crafting window (the one you see when you are actually crafting) is abit too dark imo, it is extremly hard to see the individual progressbars for the different steps...

Other then that, love the UI... didnt think i could find a better one after using Darker2.0 but you came over the top with this one Sarrene. Thank you

Great UI

I loved Darker UI, loved DarkScrolls UI even more (although it lacked an Assemble all feature for the crafting tab).

DarkSteel UI is awesome though!

My only issues with DarkSteel is that

1. Most of the UI is really dark which is good; however, with the top of the border of the bars (as well as text) being a bright white color, it makes it really really bright & it'd probley be hard on some players eyes and hard to adjust to DartkSteel. (a darker color or a black or silver color could fix this problem easily)

and more importantley

2.the pet command bar (with attack, follow, stop, assist, guard etc) does not seem to be movable at all, not even in /layoutmode which is really important for pet-dependent classes

other than these two things, DarkSteel is perfect

Got a slight problem ive loaded the ui and done exactly what you said in the installing instructions but every time i click play the game crashes right away and does a fault report,so i removed the ui command shellname=DarkScrolls and put back the default and it runs fine so i dont know how to make the game run useing yur ui.
Ive updated direct x ect
Did a full file scan
Rebooted pc (several times )
Clean install of VG

Im Running Vista 32 Ultimate fully updated

New user

Hi. I decided to give your UI a look. I've been a Core3UI user since it came out and have been very happy with it but just wanted something different and yours looked pretty sweet. There are a couple things I was hoping for that I've gotten used to from Core. Is there a way to make my group window start with me on the bottom and then move upwards? Similarly are there ways to change other things like that like which direction the encounter window expands (up or down)? And lastly, core has a few options for buff bar, one of which I really love. It's a scrollable buff bar window that I can size to whatever fits my screen then don't have to worry about my buffs going clear across the screen when I'm raid buffed. Any chances of being able to do that or is there a way for me to copy files from my core folder and utilize them with your set...kind of a mix and match thing?

Thanks
Shaoli
