1) Introduction

If you are looking for a nice simple UI that is completely modular, then this is the one. Easy
to see, read, understand and yet small and simple.

This has been an ongoing project since mid-beta, to provide a simple, clean interface for
those that prefer the minimal Interface. Many people have contributed to this project. See "Credits"
below for those that have made this possible.

There are two versions of this UI. One has InfoMap (Darker2.0) and the other does not (Darker2.0b).

2) What this Custom UI does

Removed the dependency for most ajoining windows. More separate windows to move where you want them.
a) Separate Player stats from the Defensive Target for easy layout of your choice.
Changes default size of all bags, inventory, banks and more.
Added resizable mini map for the non-InfoMap Darker2.0 version.
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.
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.

Hey Sarrene,

Great work on the UI's

However i have some questions:

1.) Whenever I install the DarkerBoxed UI, my group windows doesn't show who i am in group with, also the raidwindows isn't showing at all. Maybe they are out of screen? I don't know. All i know is that it's too bad i cant get it to show.

2.) Is there a way to save /uiwinscale customization? I tend to find most UI hotkeys and player status windows too big, and would like to make them a tad smaller.

Again great work on the UI

On a side note..

I have been working on a newer version. Well, actualy a fully redone UI based on the smaller aspect of Boxed and DarkerBoxed. So keep your eyes out for that one also for those that would like to have a completely redone full scall ui.

Any problems or issues please feel free to let me know. I am not sure how long I will keep this one updated, though I do not see a problem for now to at least keep the versions going for any patches they throw our way. Any major changes to this UI will most likely not happen however. Since I have been working on a newer and completely redone version.
