Sorry if these ideas are in other posts but did not see them as well sorry for more than one thought on one post but hey here is my two coppers worth...Before the last update we were able to change the ui skins and they actually worked as designed, but now they are nothing like they were. There is one the i liked as it was easier on my eyes, odd i know but it was, the name was cosmos and not sure how but it was a softer coloring or brightness now it is nothing like it was but still better than the default. I want to suggest a section that comes not just from users but from Turbine of UI Skins. The new UI and setup is a bit of a pain to get use to and if you notice now that the buffs are cut off at the top of the screen and to the left side were I could swear they were to the right before the update. Would like to see the buffs across the top of the screen and the ones that are almost over, with timers, to go to the far left as is they just poof and it is often when you loose a lot of them. I would also like to see guild ship buffs to pause in public areas as we all know there is often the one person in the group that never seems to know were to go to get to the entrance to the dungeon often forcing people to rebuff and I have seen many parties disband because of this due to the new person.

You can still use UI Skins, but they won't work for everything.
Turbine has not released yet the updated ressource Kit for us to update the UI Skins sadly.

- The buffs can be moved on Left or on right by ticking the option "Justify ... " in the UI part of the Options.
- The buffs have always been cut off ( halfway of my first screen ) sadly, it's a change we have asked for. ( that htey are not cut.
- The buffs are sorted in the order they are cast ( if you have them right justified the rightmost buff is the last one cast and the leftmost one if the first one cast ). This is the best way, as spells like Break enchantment will dispel the last buff cast.




I would also like to see guild ship buffs to pause in public areas as we all know there is often the one person in the group that never seems to know were to go to get to the entrance to the dungeon often forcing people to rebuff and I have seen many parties disband because of this due to the new person.


Sadly that one is not going to happen in the foreseable future.

Next time you need something to read, try this post.

How to get people to read your post. (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=355554)

Line breaks and punctuation for the win!

FWIW, I think guild buffs should pause in public areas as well but it's been requested over and over and has not yet happened. I guess because they are a luxury and not a necessity? Who knows.

And yes, please release a new resource kit for UI skinning!
