Default qqui - the little velious ui that could

[You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

much little, very customize


Changes from prior thread
Things dun did change, yo..
  • By default, hotbar 1 does not contain inventory slots (see mods)
  • By default, hotbar 1 and 2 are 2x5 (vertical), and hotbar 3 and 4 are 1x10 (horizontal)
  • New spellbook (surprise, it's little!)
  • Actually removed the dumb shit I said I removed the first time
  • Various tweaks and whatnot
  • Autoattack indicators are a thing now, no separate download required
  • Pet window now has pet health % (sorry I forgot this, and thanks Crookstinger)
Differences between base packs
There are some differences between each base pack, namely:
  • qqui for bards labels the "spell" bar button as songs, and has a cleaner tracking window. HP/Mana/Stamina/XP on player window.
  • qqui for melee has only HP/Stamina/XP on the player window.
  • qqui for hybrids has an expanded tracking window (gogo rangers), "spell" button is labeled as spells, HP/Mana/Stamina/XP on player window.
  • qqui for casters has a cleaner tracking window, "spells" button on the spellbar, and HP/Mana/XP in the player window.
How to install
First, download one of the base packs for the UI:Next, extract the folder to your uifiles folder in your Everquest directory. Load up EQ, and type /loadskin <foldername>. Finished!
OPTIONAL STEP: Post here when you fuck it up.

Modifications
Time to customize! Download, extract, and copy the file into your qqui folder. Reload the skin in EQ.

FAQs

Q: The UI is too transparent, can I make it darker?
A: Yep. Right click on the specific element and go to Window>Background>Texture. It will probably turn white. Right click again, and go to Window>Background>Tint Color. Select black. Now, right click one last time and go to Window>Alpha>Normal Level. Adjust this so that it is >80% but <100% (i.e., desired transparency).

Q: My buff bar is missing what the shit cucumbers you asshole
A: Load the default skin and put the buff bar in the center of your screen and then reload the UI. Sometimes the buff bar is off-screen.

Q: There are no little arrows to let me swap pages on the hotbar! What do!
A: Hot key it. Alt+O and go to keys. I set it so that shift+1 is page 1 on hotbar 1, shift+2 is page 2 on hotbar 2, etc.

Q: Where is the friends list?
A: Nuked. RIP. Use /who all friends and /friend <name> to manage friends.

Q: Where is the LFG window?
A: Nuked. RIP. Use /lfg on and /lfg off.

Q: Where is the EQ button? How do I get into options?
A: Nuked. RIP. Alt+O opens the options - assign hotkeys to things! Alt+C opens disc window, etc.

Shoutouts
Thanks to Phobus (base UI), Duxa (inspiration), and Savok (inspiration) and the pals that made some neat mods <3

fu to the rest of you

Nice UI Cucu! It's very clean, which I like. The only thing that keeps me from using it is my current UI (custom vert/duxa combo) has my casting window combined with my target window. If you came up with a optional download for that. I would be forever yours!

Love,

Speedi

Awesome, thanks for the update! I like the new spellbook. Also, the target window does show a cast bar, Speedi.. not sure what you mean. Everybody should use this UI!

Noticed one thing Cucu, on the pet window. Could you modify it so the name and the pets % are on 2 diff lines? At the moment they are on the same line, so they overwrite each other and you cant see the pets exact percent. Other than that its perfect! Great work!

Haha, this is probably the issue Crookstinger ran into (and now it makes sense why his % was in the health bar).

I'll look at it tonight and get a fix

Awesome! Thanks Cucu!

I will say again guys, this UI is great! I am extremely picky! For it to win me over that's quite a feat! Since I started on p99 I have tried several different UI's. I finally settled on a combination of Duxa and Vert UI. This UI beats those easily. It's very clean, allows more viewing on the screen, and the cast bar + target bar is not buggy like the one in vert. If you are on the fence, give this one a shot. You won't regret it!
