    I'm curious to see how people organize their user interfaces! (Especially PvPers)

    Also, discuss what you think should be added and what is completely useless!

    [​IMG]



    Don't you guys think they need to add a spell tray for misc. spells for Magery, Chivalry, Bushido, Mysticism, and etc? I'm sick of accidentally right clicking out spells and forget immediately what I put there.


    NOTE - 10+ points for those who have a nostaglic set up ( Windows 98 + UO )

    Gotta do some work on the Atlas in the top left corner and get rid of that extra space... other than that I'm happy. All hotbars locked in place, the QWERT/ASDFG/ZXCV grid corresponds to the buttons on my Nostromo N52 Bandages (A) and Close Wounds (S) are self to Target Self (G) is Target Next Enemy

    Well, I guess UO does have a spell tray..

    They need to add it for the 2d Client !

    I suffer the mis sized artwork and crashes during big events which come with the EC client just to use its FANTASTIC interface. :D

    I keep spell icons either along the right (for mages) or down where the Special Strike icons are for Dexxers, it all depends on the toon, and only the one's I use infrequently the rest are set up on hot keys.

    Oh and do I get bonus points for not even using Windows?

    Please don't turn this into another 2d vs EC thread, This is for user interface layouts.

    I use the same interface setup for every character (with, of course, skill specific hotbars). Screen resolution: 1280x1024

    I know I have read this somewhere... not sure where or when and I sure dont want to go searching for it again... but....

    How do you copy or what do you copy the files in your UO folder to make the same screen interface for each character? I have 3 different accounts and would love to be able to copy the same interface set up to each of my characters screens.. and for that matter even my hot keys to be copied on each character on each account would also be helpful..

    Any information on this would be greatly appreciated!!

    The screens posted here are also a great help for me to reorganize and set up my interface layouts...

    Thanks,
    Bman

    Nice UI.

    What mods/skin's are you using?

    I tried looking through your site, but for some reason, none of the "Preview" links seem to be working for me..

    The UI is Copper Enhanced with the mods included in the package (Quick Details Window I think is really the only one shown in that shot).

    The whole configuration is stored in a file with the name of your character, in a subfolder with the name of your shard, in the appropriate subdirectory in the Documents folder of Windows.
    (I think it is something like ...\My Documents\EA Games\Ultima Online Stygian Abyss\User Data\AccountName\ShardName\...)

    I set up one character, added the general hotbars that apply to every character, then added hotbars for ALL skills I use on my characters (like melee, magery, taming, spellweaving etc.). Then I logged out to save the settings.

    Then go to said directory, copy the file with the character's name and rename it to match your other characters' names. All you now have to do is log in with every character, delete the hotbars you don't need and make some minor adjustments.

    Once you're done and satisfied, I also recommend to save the whole character settings on a separate disk in case you reinstall your system or the game.

    Good gravy man! What resolution are you using? The last time I saw that much black on my screen was when I forgot to turn my monitor on.

    ...

    Smelt all macro is a macro I set up after a small series of digs that automatically uses all the different ore types on a stored target, in this case my fire beetle... VERY handy for mining... and it's all done inside the client. The full macro digs a spot 3 times, smelts all ore types then repeats 10 times in one keystroke.

    Out of all the enhanced client UI's I've seen , this is the sickest and most functional.

    Thanks It works well for me and all of my characters use the same layout so switching between them is easy (the keys are all in the same place)

    also you cant see it well here but behind the map is all the boat controls and such!

    Resolution 1680x1050 on my 17" laptop. I'm planing to consolidate and remove a couple of icons. I use same setup on all my char, with some skill specific icon changes.

    go to "my documents"
    go to 'ea games'
    go to 'Ultima Online Legacy' or *pukes a little in mouth* 'Ultima Online EC'
    go to 'user data'
    then you have your accounts listed
    pick the one ya want
    then pick the toon ya want to copy
    go in there and copy

    youll then see the 6 different files that are in there
    chardata.mul
    desktop.uos
    macros2d
    Multicache
    skillgrp.mul
    uo
    if you want to copy a toon exactlly you take the middle 4
    dont take chardata and uo EVER!

    if you just wat the User Interface you take the desktop
    is you want the skills group (if you set them up custom like) then take the skillgrp
    and the macros2d are the in game macros.

    they moved them to the 'my document' section here a while back from where they use to have them, which was under the game itself.

    Tri-monitor is a great setup. I just upgraded two of mine to have 22,23,22 in widescreens (22in LG LED TV/monitor, 23in Samsung P2350 and 22in Samsung 226BW).

    I should do a picture with the EC spread across all 3 and zoomed out just for fun :p

    (Also having the 3rd monitor be both a TV and a monitor gives a good bit of extra function as I want it)

    Bring up your Character Sheet (double click on the status bars gump for your character, or bring up the paperdoll and click the CHaracter Sheet icon).

    Set up a hotbar where you want it.

    There is a column of icon on the left for each stat in the character sheet. They can be clicked and dragged into each hotbar slot as desired so you can mix and match which stats and mods you want visible. Makes for a nice stats display.

    [​IMG]

    One of the things i need to see if we can get done in a mod is to display the skill value when you drag a skill icon onto a hotbar (at least for those you CAN drag ontp a hotbar).
