Return of the Zero Add-on Project03/24/2010
Patch 3.3.3 has complete destroyed my UI, a UI that I haven’t updated since I got it back in Ulduar. It has been the most stable, easy-going UI I’ve ever seen, but now I’m going to have to download a whole new set of add-ons and spend hours configuring them. What this means for us all is…
It’s time to go back to my Zero Add-on Project! (I’m feeling far, far too lazy to bother with more than just Gladius, is what I’m saying.)
Last night, I logged on to turn all my battlegrounds tokens into honor and to run one of the new random ones. I was assaulted by a headache of extreme proportions as I entered an Isle of Conquest. The base UI is simply horrendous for healing that many people at once. It makes me very glad that I didn’t heal in Vanilla; staring at all those tiny boxes gave me a headache like you wouldn’t believe. It wouldn’t take much to make it so you can resize the base UI’s raidframes separately from the rest of the UI and it would be a giant help for those like me who don’t need giant buttons, but also don’t want to go blind squinting at the screen.
Even worse is the position of the self and target health bars for PvP. Putting all the way in the top right corner is a travesty. I have to take my eyes off of the action around me to see if I’m dying or if the enemy I’m targeting needs to be Dispelled. Having it so you can move them in the base UI would eliminate a large reason why many people don’t use it. I’ll see if I can come up with new ways to deal with the situation. I -did- make myself my focus at one point and moved the focus bar right in the middle of my screen, which helped. Unfortunately, I actually use my focus for things, so it made some of my macros rather useless.
Most likely, I will be continuing without any add-ons for at least a few weeks. We’ll see how it handles hardmode raiding!
