Default Classic EQ/Velious UI in the works

As nice as many of these new interfaces are, I find that they are a bit intrusive and too "busy" for my tastes. I've always prefered the clean UI that shipped with Classic EQ, the one that appeared when you hit F10, also known as the fullscreen UI. It was simple, yet functional. So i've begun work on recreating that old UI that many players grew up with.

I'd say i'm about halfway done. The only major window left to do is the inventory, and then a few minor ones. Let me know what you think so far.
Any feedback is of course appreciated.

The UI is basically done, and has been for a few weeks. No one really seemed interested so I didn't bother releasing it. Also, the UI has been specially remade for the EQClassic project that I am working on, so i removed a lot of functionality that would no longer be needed for a classic enviornment - shared bank slots, 9th spell gem, many toolbars, and many "advancements" that players might have come to get used to, such as exact mana numbers.

On the bright side, I also took the time to remake the login interface, so that part also looks similar to the EQ of 1999. Because of that, this UI needs to OVERWRITE the default UI - that is the only way that i'm aware of to change the login part of the UI.

Sony recently made some changes to that with the release of OOW, and I occasionally get a black screen upon logging in, so i'm going to have to double check to see whats going on before I release this. Once its complete, I will be releasing it on my website. I'll post more details later. I might also decide to go back and redo the character creation part of the UI, but i'm very pressed for time

All windows should work. However, I did not bother remaking any of the windows that were not available in classic. This means that things like AA windows, guild windows, friends windows, raid windows, etc , will look like the default UI. I only bothered to remake things found in ClassicEQ, since I could see how those looked and easily remake them. So yes, the LDON window will work - but it'll look like the default UI.
