Things the new UI can't co.
 
Please sticky this thread.

I see a number of repeated requests. This is due to 2 reasons 1) people dont browse back to old posts and 2) the limitations of the new UI are not very clear.

Taking the 2nd point first, the new UI allows modifications to the APPEARANCE of the application. It does not allow any changes to the functionality.

Examples of stuff that we simply CAN'T MOD at this time...

1) CLOCKS - real time/game time display of clocks
2) webpages - using the STMLBOX like for the help
3) Spellbook - showing all spells
4) Guauges can only be horizontal
5) Timers / animations cannot be reset or restarted http://www.eqgui.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=2346
6) autoequip cannot be moved to other windows
7) Location (/loc) is not available to be shown or used.

add to that :

- show tracked mob direction with compass / show a circular compass instead of the actual one
- show current loc
- show more than 8 spells per book page / show more than 10 hotkeys at the same time / allow more than 8 spell gems
- add any button

and we are not talking right know of what could be changed but can't due to EQ hard coded things ( button / gems / autoequip not able to move from their window, ...)

mana /stamina/ xp can only be shown as % or jauge , no exact value, and there is no way to see others' ones( target or group )

there is no way to have more precise %ages ( with digits )

You can't have the target's name displayed in the colour of its "con".

And, I agree, move this over to the Info Vault or stick a pin in it. :)

Thou shalt not have an auto equip area anywhere outside of the inventory window!

Neither shalt thou have Hotbuttons anywhere else than in the Hotbuttons window nor Spellgems anywhere else than in the spell gem bar!

P.S.: I don't think this should be moved but rather stickied here.
People who want to request mods because they don't know how to do it themselves probably won't bother looking at the info/Vault first and go here directly, so this is where this note should be found....

one thing that should cut down a lot of requests :


UI mods can't do at all any action in the game. Anything the user can do , the UI mod can't do, not repeatedly , not even once ....

Nothing else than what is listed HERE and animations can change 'alone' while in game.
