View Full Version : Addons

Hey guys,

I'm looking for an Addon which will add more buttons to my screen.

Here's the catch...I'm a very simple person and would only probably be able to use a very simple add-on.

Is there one where you can just drag and move the buttons around, or have it just set the buttons above the current bar and on the right and left side of the screens or something?

Commands are not my forte. I heard of Cosmos, but I think it may be confusing...not sure

I use Insomniax - it's a package of add-ons similar to Cosmos.

It includes 7 bars that you can move around and change the shape of. And it allows you to drag and drop them easily.

It takes a few minutes to get the hang of it - but it's definately worth it in the end.

Link to the new 1.6 Beta (haven't tried it yet, but going to upgrade from 1.5 now) (http://www.insomniax.net/files/wow/wow_ui_mod_ix_recompilation_v1.6_beta_03.zip)

All the ones I've ever used have been tough to set up and had many components...

I'd check out www.curse-gaming.com/mod.php or ui.worldofwar.net and browse the categories that might be applicable (compilations and/or interface) to find one that is streamlined.

I use Insomniax, which is f-ing great, but seems to have been abandoned by its creators.

[edited for typoing it's vs its, heh]

Looks like they took out a few things and added others, so I retract my previous statement about being abandoned...

I may try a complete wipe and reinstall of IX tonight, I've been having troubles with it since I've been trying to update the component parts as they have been updated.

The only thing I'm bummed about losing is the Auctioneer data and functionality.

I've been using nurfed ui along with some CT mods, works pretty good.

Tried Cosmos first and then switched to Insomniax thanks to a tip from CT. Insomniax blows Cosmos out the water as far as the amount of addons you can enable to enchance the gaming experience. Highly recommended.

I no likey the new version of Insomniax. Maybe it's the fact that it doesn't have roguehelper any more - and all of the features have been moved around a bit. I'll probably just download roguehelper seperately and try to add things that I notice are missing.

Found the equivalent of roguehelper (http://www.curse-gaming.com/mod.php?addid=388)

Yeah, I saw some of the stuff that was added/deleted from Insomniax, and I said no way was I doing a clean install. I'm in the habit of updating mods fairly often from curse-gaming, so even with the insanely slow Insomniax updates, I have almost all up-to-date mods. Not to mention that Raidassist updates way too often to wait on Insomniax, especially with shaky backwards compatability with versions.

WoW comes with an option that lets you set up 2 more bars above the main toolbar, and 2 on the side. Do you need more than that? If not, esc > interface options, and then it's down near the bottom.
