First of. Sorry for beeing a slacker and not responding the questions activly as I have done in the past. Many thanks for Liftedplane for doing this for me hehe.

Secondly. About the future of the skin (again).
I lost my interest to lotro during the summer, I'm picking it up again and hopefully ROI will bring my motivation back. Turbine not releasing new skin resources haven't helped on this either, hopefully that will change soon (at least they have promised so).

I'll try to fix the essential things asap after the new resources are released (for both DaimonUI and DF Revisited). This should take no more than a few days.

The larger update schedule is TBA, depends of my motivation I suppose. I plan to scrap the current mini version and make it quite a bit more .. mini, with additional features. The main skin will also see some changes, mainly on vitals part as I'm planning to switch them, or better yet make the vitals so you can deside in what order you want them to be displayed (left to right and right to left, currently the vitals can only be displayed in "goofy" order that annoys quite a bit people I heard). A bit hard to explain in short but you'll see, I hope hehe. Universal will remain mostly as it is.

I also want to make the skin compatible with some of the plugins like the awesome Palantir, that means doing some optional Vital panel modifications. But first let's see what new API's there is and if it ease my work.

The largest part of the rework is that I'm planning to make a GUI installer for all the features there is to select (there's going to be quite many, the current basic script doesn't cut it anymore), something similar you might have seen in UiBuilder or so.

Hopefully I can accomplish all that before SWTOR goes live :P


Lastly to answer the questions:

Mynameisme: You might want to check out the newly uploaded RKNAM Halo skin, this might be just what you're looking for without tying to mess with my skindef files yourself (although it is quite fun after you learn the basics). Check http://lotrointerface.com/downloads/...RKNAMHalo.html

Greytail: Poke me or liftedplane with pm's if you still want a "special edition"

Whitecloud: Easiest way to do this is to go to the addons folder and open up the minimap xml file to your notepad. Erase all information from the file leaving it totally empty and run the setup script. Other way is to open the actual skindefinition.xml and removing the exact same information that is in the minimap xml (you can do a search to find it quickly), save it and run the game. This should remove the modified minimap entirely (note that there are several skindefinition.xml's in my skin for different reasons, you would need to edit each of them that you will use - that's why I recommend the first option.).

@whitecloud, if you want to stock minimap then yes remove everything from the skindef file AND the minimap files, if you want to change it to another, make sure you check the files and name them properly (such as hope+ or dread) then replace the ones in the minimap folder and leave the skindef alone, sorry it took so long to reply, I've been busy with well with the army and life.

@greytail, what is your resolution? I could throw something together for you quickly and email over the file if you'd like. let me know

@mynameisme, I'm not entirely sure, it's all about messing around in the skindefs and with the files.... most of the skindef stuff is in plain english it just looks difficult, mess around see what you get, I learned to build these by tearing down daimon's And thank you daimon for allowing me to.

New Backdrop?

Daimon,

Could you by chance make a backdrop that is just a black texture. Sort of like a carbon style backdrop? The reason that I ask is that if you have bad eyesight, as I do, the blue color tends to wash out the icons to where you can't see them clearly and it's rather distracting. I tried to modify it myself but it came out a total failure due to my lack of skill

Vitals

Is there a way to make my Vitals from the mini/universal Daimon UI4 versions (including SoM) look like the normal Vitals for the original sized one?

Or, if it's easier, I love everything from the normal UI other than the big toolbar and the buttons, how could I replace it with the mini toolbar?

Alright I think I figured it out, Either it is entering the SkinDefinition in the Setup Area or it is actually deleting the minimap from the addons folder and that will revert it back to the original map.

whitecloud. my purple version of this is currently broken and I don't have all the time available to remove the character ui, though I'm hoping to get it to this weekend. I was able to change the minimap for mine as I didn't like the one included... so it's not too hard. just like he said look in the files and pull it out.

If its just the ring around the map you dislike, and if you have other UI saved and installed, you can also find the minimap TGAs and replace them with a picture with a thinner ring. Or use the Lotro Skin Editor which allows you to visually move elements of the UI and redirect the Skin xml in there to find a different picture

Whitecloud: Yes there is, but it's not that simple to explain. Sorry I'm a bit overworked atm. Try finding all the <!-- MINIMAP sections from the Skindefinition.xml from Uni root and remove them from the file (make a backup first from the original file). Then load the game and see what happens (remember, relogging isn't enough). I can try to explain this in greater detail later on.

liftedplane: Yeah thank the maker. Lets hope the best and fear the worst Thanks everyone who gave their support!

One Mini Map to Rule them all!

Hey Daimon I really like your skin so far but something irritating me is the Size of the mini map, I really prefer the smaller size of the original mini map and was wondering if there was a way to fix this with your mini map or go back to the original mini map while keeping the rest of the skin I am currently using universal.

hobo11: Thanks for the support and your kind words. To answer your question:

Aragorn: "There is always hope."

But not without the help of the community it seems. It makes me so happy that so many have shown their support at http://forums.lotro.com/showthread.php?381775

ps. actually it's really easy to make skin updates now as there's nothing much to update until they release the new art pack - if they do :c


You've got my support Daimon. Hopefully one of these days Turbine will get their head out of their patoots and release these art assets. I just don't see why they won't. :|

Thanks

Hello.
I'm recently returned to the game, I used your ui the last time I played and really liked it, the windows are streamlined and remove a lot of clutter, also many tweaks, such as the enlarged dressing room (why is the default inventory screen huge and the dressing room so tiny with no options to resize it) things like that just make it belter.

But:
Coming back to the game Iíve noticed some of the posts here about turbin not releasing the art packs, its giving me the impression that this may become a thing of the past which will be very unfortunate, I really hope it doesnít come to that, I really do hate some of the default windows.
Something I read had a comment that maybe turbin is afraid that moders will remove all the store buttons from the window, not that I blame them, I like to have access to the store, but they could have made them much less intrusive.

How is it looking so far, is there hope that moders will continue to be given a place within LotR? I would hate to see this come to an end, and all the awesome stuff you guys bring to the community.

Also just wanted to say, I was a bit worried about loading this up, was afraid you all donít have the necessary resources to keep the skins up, was delighted to find the skin as I remember it, and all the window to the most part working correctly, again thx for this ui, especially since its even harder to keep it up now, hopefully turbine will come around and give you those packs with there next up date or release.

rulez: fellowship panel can't be modified or skinned in any way. (yes there's one art asset for it but it really doesn't make any difference)

Fellowshop window

Is it intentional that the fellowship window (Fellowship Mini Panel) is not affected by the skin? I expected that it would look similar to the character ones (Vitals) when using DiamonUIUniversal. But the fellowship window seems to be the default Turbine skin.
