Update!

May 19, 2008

Yeah yeah, I know I’m slacking. 🙂

Unfortunately the slack will continue for now. I am not creating as many UIs as I once did – these days I become so satisfied with my UI so I don’t need to keep playing around. Also I’m not using that much art any longer for a cleaner look, which unfortunately kind of kills the soul purpose of this blog. Sure, UICavern is a great idea and I should still publish it – but as I’ve already explained, I am kind of saving it for a school project which means I cannot complete it before we start working with that project, which will be in about half a year.

Things that I should do, however, is…

… Fix the minimalist UI release that somehow did not work.

… Release my current UI.

And I will try and do this asap. However, summer time coming up and I wont be spending as much time at the computer. Survive until fall. I promise – it’ll be worth it. 😉

After two weeks of slacking I finally “completed” the UI. This UI has been harder for me to finish for me for a couple of reasons:

1) I’m not actively using it

2) I couldn’t raid test it or anything like that

3) It was just after a patch, some AddOns were buggy

If you find something that isn’t configured (Grid for sure isn’t) you’ll have to do it yourself I’m afraid. But I think most of you people just want to get your hands on the UI and then make your own personal changes, so here it is.

Screenshot. As you can see, there are no big changes.

And the download link? Uploading right now, keep your eyes on the UI section. 🙂

Most of you might also understand that it will take a while before UICavern is here. Lack of motivation is the biggest reason, me thinks. However we are thinking about finishing the site and working to improve it as a school project. Nothing is decided yet, but should this happen the site wont be released until this fall.

2.4 launched!

March 27, 2008

Aight, 2.4 is finally here. After I’ve enjoyed it some, the promised minimalist UI will be released. 🙂

FAQ

March 14, 2008

Here’s a FAQ, answering some of the most common questions I get:

Q: When will UICavern be released?

A: I don’t know. Right now we’re not getting much work on it. The reason is that the coder has got school work up to his nose, and I can’t do very much on my own.

Q: Are you working on any UIs at the moment? What UI are you using?

A: As I said, I’ve worked some on a minimalist UI. However, I’ve decided to wait for patch 2.4 before releasing it. The patch will probably make it all buggy anyways. I’m still using this UI: http://ww2.beffo.se/upload/pic~/o55dscacavyh.jpg

Q: So what exactly are you doing at the moment?

A: Not much, I’m afraid. I don’t have any gametime and it’ll take a while before I buy new. That’s simply because I don’t have much to do in WoW at the moment. 😦

Q: Did you release the Gnome bounce video somewhere?

A: Yes, it’s right here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W63WG-KuoqE

Q: Will there be any more events?

A: You never know. 😉

Well, if you thought the only thing I did was UIs and art, you were wrong! Sometimes I get sick ideas and have some server events!

This saturday, 10/2, at 16PM server time, I’m going to try and recreate the Sony bravia commercial “Color like no other”. To my help I need a lot of gnomes!

Read the thread for more information. EU servers only. 🙂

Website & PvP UI

December 19, 2007

“When will the website be out?!?!?” I’ve been asked from everyone lately. Well, I’m happy to tell you that it’s now… alpha. Some basic functions are there now, you can register, log in and out, upload UIs, Textures and submit tutorials. A comment system is soon implemented as well. At the moment I must say, the structure is awful and the whole site feels very amature-ish so I would be a bit shamed of releasing it now, but since people are begging… It will be released this week.

Concerning the PvP UI I was talking about, I did a classic Siana-thing. I made it 95% complete and then started using it, and now I never fix the remaining 5%. But fear not! I’m planning to do it this evening. Also I’m going to submit a screenshot for you asap. It reminds pretty much of the latest UI, the structure is just a little bit different and the whole thing is smaller.

Christmas soon, by the way! As the gentlemen I am, I’ve done a dwarf male called “Fatherxmas” and sent over lots of green items, pets and some blue items and even one or two epic items(!). These items will all be handed out in Ironforge on friday 21th. You are all more than welcome to come to Ironforge, Kazzak and watch and talk to Santa, but I’m afraid that no level 1s will get any presents. This is simply because:

1) I want people to acctually get some use of the gifts.

2) Then people could just create a bunch of level 1s and then send over all the items to their mains. I want each person to get one gift.

Here‘s the thread about it, if you’re interested (which you probably aren’t :D). Cheers!
