    Here is a picture my old UI I used for old SoD (2.0?):

    Currently one of the main things holding me back from enjoying my time on 2.5 is simply due to the UI being so terrible.

    I haven't had too much free time. However, I am trying to make a UI for 2.5.

    Just felt like showing you guys what I have made so far. Maybe you guys can give me some good ideas.

    I am shooting for something similar to my old UI but working on cleaning up some of the things I was always too lazy to fix / work on.

    I know my screen resolution is terrible (1280 x 1024). My PC currently isn't the best. I hope to get one soon so I can play at a better resolution, perhaps 2560 x 1440 if SoD even can handle it. If you are running this resolution let me know.

    Buffs & Effects

    I have always been a fan of Soes's work on EQ Interface since I played live from way back in the day. I pulled out this file from 09-30-2003 to see if I could edit it and make it work.

    I like to have my buffs on the left side of my screen over having them on my right. I use the right side for the tracking window. Anyhow, here are some pictures of the progression. This took my FAR too long. It was embarrassing. Had to edit the EQUI_Animations file.

    Finally, I figured out of to fix it:

    Added the other buff's to the window to no longer get the error when logging in / zoning as well.

    Not 100% sure I like the blue texture I used. It seems a bit too flashy. I do like the red one however.

    Selector window

    Edited "Simple Sleek Selector Window" found Here to work better with SoD

    Basically the following buttons are worthless for SoD so I removed them:
    Combat Skills
    Journal
    Mercenaries
    Mail
    Help

    I left Guild Window in there in hopes it will one day it will work.

    Also, there is an odd bug I ran into that three buttons are one pixel off when they are selected and you hover over them.

    You will have to edit the "window_pieces02" file in your UI folder to fix this. Shifting the three buttons over one pixel will fix this problem. Shown here:

    Since you linked me to here.. do you by chance have these uploaded somewhere so I can download them. I would hate to re-invent the wheel. (Besides, I am lazy as all hell.)

    lol, if that is the case, the new default must have taken the rest, crushed it under it's boot, and then burned the remains.

    Im used to the default UI, I never had a custom one, and never really saw one I liked/ wanted to bother setting up, but man, looking at that, looks amazing. and I need it in my life.

    Most of the stuff I made back when 2.5 had first came out had to be fixed.

    Here is an update. I have a ton of work and homework for school to do. Maybe I can finish this weekend.

    Here is a preview:
