I got the inspiration from Skoite here -> Legion UI?? It peaked my interest, so I thought I’d give it a try. The rogue thing he did in the center looked like it didn’t fit so I used something that did. I initially planned this elaborate time lapse video of every step from start to finish, but after the first 10 or so fuck ups, I was like,” Yeah, this video isn’t gonna happen.” I kept everything simple this time around. Not too much flashy stuff. I don’t really have any plans to make it fully functional. As it is now, it only has semi-functional bars.
Long story short – I WON’T be putting the files up because it does not use standard bars. Go steal it from the Legion website like I did. Weak Auras does this funky squish thing with non-quadrilateral progress texture shapes that do not progress like a normal progress bar would, so any deficits values you think you see will almost always be inaccurate. That’s a big no no in my book. It will NOT make a reliable UI. If there was some way to utilize the “bar” textures in a different unitframe addon, I’m thinking stuf, then maybe…it might work. Don’t quote me on that, I’m not even sure if its just a problem on my end. Like I’m making the bars wrong (likely).
I guess there is a possibility I might share the files and string since there is a light of hope that I have found. Apparently its possible to fix the squish if I make the custom texture a bar texture instead (the one used with progress bars). Its completely different from the custom progress texture. Notice the difference in progress? A progress bar is on the left, while a custom progress texture is on the right. The left side is more accurate.
The downside is, as you will notice, is that there is a pretty noticeable drop in quality using this method, which I would not prefer if possible. I’ll have to tinker around some more with the process is see what’s up.
