Exclamation Spell Gem Request Please!

Hi, I like the new UI except one thing.

I absolutely HATE the new UI gems and casting.

Is there someway someone could possibly make a UI Gem Casting thing that looks like the original spell gems? If so this would be soooooooooooo much apreciated

Thank You

-Ryan

:\ I made a half decent one for druids, only thing keeping me from doing other classes was that I didnt know what spell icons and gems icons go with other class's spells. There might be somewhere out there that has that info, lucy doesnt, atleast not that i see. but if you wanted to list the icons for every spell id do it hehe. that would take time to list em out tho probably. sorry i couldnt get u a quick solution

That is I dont know what the corresponding spells icons were in the Old UI. I can find out what the new icons are but I dont know which old ui icons to change them to. Re-read it and it didnt sound clear

That would be great! I am a little confused on what to list. The spell gem pic? The spell name? The types of spells?

If you look in your everquest folder, open up the uifiles folder and than open up the default folder. In there is a file called "Spell_Icons.tga" that contains the original spell icons. I am not sure where spell gem icons are stored, if they even are. For those I logged into the game and took multiple screen shots of different gem icons and than did some ghetto cut and paste. But pretty much all you do is manual cut and paste the old ones into the new icon's place. Also, you need a tga file reader to view them. Ill look through my folders and see if I still have sreen shots of all the spell gems since we can't even use the old ui now

oh, and if we wanted to do it i would need to know the name of a spell and its old ui icon. not every single spell has to be listed since many lines of spells use the same icon. Like for me i knew skin like XXXX all had the same icon so I didnt check each spell individually. But just list all the major ones and than smoke test it to weed out the spells that got missed

I can list all of the major spell lines to you but should I just describe what the old gem looked like?

yup pretty much, the icons are easily distinguishable...Sow is a boot, aego is a shield, root is a plant (atleast for druids).

Good start, I got started and after a few spells into it there was already a bunch of missing data... It's ok tho, I'm looking at this site for spell name reference to look up on lucy. It breaks down the spells into 42 categories, a bunch, but if you could look at that and see what spell icons u remember it would help. like Mez, haste, stun, I'm not sure on. Anyways check this out and tell me if u are able to remember anything http://members.tripod.com/xornn/Spells/spell.htm
