    I'm still using legacy II after the second to last patch where EA made the healthbars have the massivly small X in the top right corner. Is there not just a simple set of mods that alter health bars only? I think that would be a beneficial project. If not can anyone tell me how to port over someone elses health bars to a new skin.

    Also, why is there not a sticky in this forum linking people to modders exchange?

    I have asked in another post if one of our modders would write a small set of instructions on how to add mods in the EC for newbies and will put a sticky link in this (btw most all the modder exchange people have a link in all there posts)!

    If I cant get anyone to write something up I will put a sticky in with a link!

    Pulling the bits and pieces of the Legacy II skin into individual skinning mods is on my TODO list... but probably won't be done for a while.

    any idea where in a skin the health bar code is? I'll try modding it myself. on my screen the X out for the health bar is about 4 pixles. maybe if i could just have some code snippet to make them close on right click? anyone got one of those?

    ...

    MobileHealthBar.xml is the main file that handles the look of the health bars. It also will call a few other template xml files so be on the lookout for that.

    I ended up making extra health bars so that I could do an entire reformat of the bars both before and after the patch in Copper and Stone.
