    you could wait a little bit, im sure you will be able to find a third party ui skin to use that might change that. i know when i played last year with my older dino comp i used DDO LIGHT which made most of the UI transparent, and the actual boarders of the UI smaller so you could...overlap? the differnt things. i managed to keep everything out of eyes site and it worked all right.

    i have not played since u11 so im not sure how bad it is. but if its as bad as people say it is look for a new DDO skin. also, LOtR skins work also from what i remember. i may be wrong.

    Im terrified of this update. Can someone please post a screen of the new UI vitals?
    First they laughed at me when I made a drow rogue.
    Then they laughed at me when I went dex based.
    Next they laughed at me when I went pure.
    Guess who's laughing now?

    The new UI really needs a makeover, or they need to let us select the old UI - it seems obvious that whoever designed it and implemented it didn't test it with a Divine character in a "real-world" situation (if that term even applies to a game??)

      • I suggest both of these*
        • disable: show vitals bar values
        • enable: show vitals bar percentage values


    May help some.
    * = This may help significantly if you liked the old bar look, its not Ideal(I too hate the shrinkage), but a ##% should help if BG transparency is tripping you up.
    It doesn't change the fact that the hit point bars are half the size they were.

    Default HP bars are now too small

    Quote Originally Posted by rosedarkthorn View Post

    Like I said in another UI thread, The UI party bars are far too small now. The numbers for HP and SP are too small, and the bar itself is too small, which will make it more difficult for me, who plays a healer, to decide when someone needs to be healed because I can't read the numbers, and the numbers block the life bar. And I definitely agree that it takes up too much space.

    Instead of making them smaller to accommodate the artificer pet, a better way of doing it is to put the bars closer together, rather than have so much space between each bar. That, or perhaps have the HP and the SP on the one line, like:
    [ HP / SP ]
    [Iron Defender when applicable]
    instead of:
    [ HP ]
    [ SP ]
    [Iron Defender when applicable]

    I think that might make more sense, and to be honest? the width they were before was fine, so why not keep that width, and just as SP beside the HP so that the bars take up less space? I would also like the option back to have my HP bar both in the party list, and at the bottom near my chat window. I'll forget to heal myself now that they've changed it.
    If you made hp area taller to include the name area that may work. If the name were in the red hp bar and the hp bar was taller to take up the area where the name is now, it would be workable....

    Default Toons are dieing out there, new UI bars bad

    Hi,

    my cleric is having trouble reading the new UI health bars. They go transparent when they go down and a red background is getting toons killed.

    Please change it. The background transparentcy. Also make it longer. Put the names and stats in the bars like the old UI.

    The new UI sucks all around, it makes it very hard to heal no matter how you have it set up.

    It's not a fail proof suggestion, but if you go into your options, you can add the percentages to the health bars and that definitely helps a bunch.

    I've adjusted my settings to make them take up less real estate, and the names are very small. I can hardly read them. Me no likey.

    This new UI is junk. Found it very difficult to read/see.

    It seems to me a lazy approach was taken towards the spacing between character bars.
    They did a static value spacing for everyone to account for Arti pets, even if they aren't an Artificer.

    Possible work around (can't check myself right now) create a new chat tab and break it off from all the others. Turn off all incoming and out going info for that widow. Place party health icons on top of the new chat window should give you a black background to work with.

    I like the new UI, but I think it would be nice if they had a toggle option.

    -Blinks.- Clicking? What do you mean clicking? Function Keys FTW!!! Don't you use the function keys? They're much easier to use than clicking on people, and a helluva lot faster. -Shrugs.- I'm sort of a keyboard player. I don't even own a mouse. I use the scratch pad on my laptop.
