Various Features (slightly out of date)
NOTE: Any issues which you need help with should be posted on the Beta support thread.

Mod layout inspired by the TyeJae Steel mod, the first full mod I used. I liked its functionality but it was a little clunky for my tastes so I attempted to make something of my own. This proved harder than I thought, so instead I modified and deconstructed the pieces available on this site. Pretty much everything has been modified, whether it be almost undetectable (Maintained/Effects) or full reorganisation (Player Window). It's designed for 1280*1024 primarily, but could easily be adapted.

- Large, clear display of current player health and power with values and percentages.
- Large display of target/implied health with smaller, indicative power bars.
- XP, HP, power, casting and breath all of equal width to remain inkeeping.
- Persona bar with 2 toggle buttons, 1 for titles/bio window, the other for character sheet.
- Smaller pet window inkeeping with general size of UI elements.
- 3/4 size hotbars with smart hotkey/bank selection display.
- Advanced inventory window with stats/XP overlay.
- Global bank viewing (items, not money).
- Formatted harvest information window.
- Check screenshots for anything I might have missed.

- eq2.ini
- <server>_<charname>_eq2_uisettings.ini (1280x1024)
- Simple UI
- Read Me
- MookMiniMap.zip

- Comes with some alternative UI pieces - mini-inventories, XP bar variations.
- Inventory widget and the background frame are both auto-loaded using code on the clock.
- Emotes window edited to remove secondary popup, with 'toggle macro editor' button added.

- ger (Trade, Bags)
- depechenode (Examine)
- DrumsUI (Bank, Target, Implied)
- Draco-1 (Clock)
- AncientAndroid (Compass)
- tonyis3l33t (Maintained/Effects)
- Deathbane27 (Hotbar, Broker, Chat, Mini-Map)
- Jaxel (Journal, Tracking, Harvesting)
- Synatic (Group)
- Kryoclasm (Mini-Inventory)
- Humudce (Player)
- Kosmos (Emotes)
- Daimond (Raid)
- [Zonx (Fetish Inventory concept)]

Known Issues:
- Full screen to window mode and back sometimes displaces the XP bar.
- Casting Bar has been known to disappear very briefly, though hasn't happened recently.
- Dragging money from Mini-Inv to Bank works, any other dragging to or from MI does not.

Good UI

While this UI lacks some of the polish of the more mainstream UIs, I like this UI for a number of reasons:

1. It has 2 hotbars in the center. Most UIs only have 1, with the rest on the right.
2. The Health bars are all together. I am annoyed at the common tendancy to put the health and mana bars really far apart, with the target window inside. Awful. Very nice job here.
3. Leaves the top clean.
4. Easy to customize

Simplicity is key

this is the sort of thing i've been after, good work. Not to detract from the panoply of excellent UI's already out there, but when I play I want to be looking at the game world, not the UI, and this one does an excellent job of not taking up an ounce more space than absolutely necessary, while retaining functionality.

kudos to the creator and all the people he nicked bits off to save himself the trouble
