It is really easy to roll your own UI... if you know what the flap you're doing. I assure you, it's not as simple as Cyno01 makes it sound, but it IS pretty simple.Start with the basics--dominos or bartender to move your bars around (I prefer a 2x24 set of buttons (or 2 rows of 2 bars each with 12 buttons) at the bottom with one or two 'bonus' 3x4 or 4x3 button banks hiding. Before I used a 3x12 or even a 4x12 bank of buttons. Just play with it and figure out what your buttoning wants are.Sunnart is a really simple way to give you a backdrop to play with. I prefer chinchilla over sexymap, personally, because chinchilla seems to have functional profiles... it's not as, well, sexy, but there you go. As a general rule, if you say "I wish I had an addon that would..." it probably exists. but.. START small. dominos/bartender is the first step. expand from there and don't get swamped down by zomgADDONS/// your head may explode :DOh, also.. use shadowed unitframes, not pitbull. Likewise, grid over vuh-doh. They're both pretty easy to set up and use out of the box. they're both very configurable, but out of the box, they work. :D anyway.. a guildie of mine swears by NUI.
