I love JappMe's Ivy theme. I think it fits the game better than any other UI out there, including the one made by Turbine. I didn't like having four rows of docked quickslot bars, though; it just felt too cluttered to me. I also didn't like undocking the bars and then having them placed in not-so-convenient places around the screen. So, when JappMe recently updated Ivy, I figured I'd mod it to accommodate more bars horizontally.
All credit here should go to JappMe for his excellent UI. This is nothing but a simple mod to his Mirkwood Ivy theme
's main panel.
I couldn't find JappMe's email, so I PMed him to get his blessing to release this. I haven't heard back from him for several days, but since his site says "feel free to use and/or to change this UI with a little notice to the author," I'm assuming he won't mind this release.
Installation is essentially unchanged. You'll need to modify one line in the skindefinition.xml file based on your resolution. Instructions are included in the readme.txt file and at the top of skindefinition.xml.
The downside to this sort of mod is that docking no longer aligns the bars properly. The primary quickslot bar will be where it should, but additional bars will need to be undocked and manually aligned.
After doing this, I recommend using the /ui layout save <name> and /ui layout load <name> commands to save your layout and carry it across multiple characters.
This mod hasn't been extensively tested. If you find any problems, like bits of the panel being out-of-place, let me know and I'll try and get it fixed.
Incorporated JappMe's latest changes: larger dressing room and mail.
