We are very pleased to announce, after much conversation between ourselves and Frosty, that Frosty went to bat for us (the community) with the various Turbine departments, including Legal, and secured an official release of the default Art Assets and the default SkinDefinition.xml file. No more do authors have to "guesstimate" the sizes of the default art. Now you can download the original art directly, for use in creating your own replacement graphics.
For ease of use, we are making a copy of the Default Art Assets, as released by Turbine, available for authors on this site, here
. Following are the details from Turbine's announcement and release page:
For those users who want to try their hand at skinning the textures on the LOTRO UI, we have released a "UI skinning art pack". This zip file contains all of the art asset tgas and a SkinDefinition.xml file to help you get started.
You can also download Turbine's official file from here
(scroll to the bottom of the page, under the "UI Customization Toolkit").
For information on skinning the UI (where to download and install, how to modify the file) see this
page or the official version on Turbine's site, here
Thank you very much Frosty, for getting this made available to the community. It will be of great assistance for authors just getting started.
