This is a collection of simple mods to change the default Bottom Bars in Age of Conan. There are 6 different Bottom Bar options available, so you can find the one that works best for you, depending on your class and/or screen resolution(s) you generally play at. Also included are 4 custom Player Portrait options (in addition to the Default look)...why should the bosses and elites get all the fancy frames, eh? This mod also includes a redesigned Assassin Soul Shard meter (now displaying your unholy points as grinning skulls) as well as a larger and easier-to-click Pet Control Panel. Both redesigned controls fit in nicely next to the new Player Portrait options.
The first Bottom Bar option (Simple), is merely the default Bottom Bar, restructured to allow for the addition of the new Player Portraits, as well as new graphics on the ends, so it blends into the XP/PVP Bars more smoothly. The lower 3 combo slots will become available at level 40 for melee classes, and the Alt Bar switching behaves normally (as it does on all 6 Bottom Bar options).
The second Bottom Bar option (Caster) always displays the lower 3 slots that normally show up at level 40 for melee classes, so casters (or anyone for that matter) can have the added room from level 1 onward.
The third Bottom Bar option (Extended) allows for full mapping of the top row of keys on standard full-size keyboards. The Extended option(s) adds 1 slot for " ~ " to the left side, and 2 slots for " - " and " = " to the right side of the Bottom Bars. The lower 3 combo slots will become available at level 40 for melee classes.
The fourth Bottom Bar option (Extended/Caster) is a combination of the Extended and the Caster options, so you always have access to the lower 3 combo slots, as well as the added " ~ ", " - " and " = " slots for a total of 6 additional slots (for caster classes).
The fifth Bottom Bar option (2 Row) provides 2 full rows of slots for those players who require more room, offering 39 fully keymappable slots. The Alt Bar switching behaves normally, and maintains the standard layout of the 1-10 slots on the lower row, with the 3 extra combo slots above them. It is essentially the Extended/Caster option with 17 more slots added to the top row.
The final Bottom Bar option (3 Row) provides 3 full rows of slots for those players who require the most room, offering 59 fully keymappable slots. The Alt Bar switching behaves normally, and maintains the standard layout of the 1-10 slots on the lower row, with the 3 extra combo slots above them. It is essentially the 2 Row option with 20 more slots added to the top row.
The new Player Portrait options allow the user to customize the look of their Portrait, by displaying new graphics on either side of the Health/Stamina/Mana bars. You can choose from a pair of fearsome Hyborian Lions, shamanistic Bears, grinning Skulls, or evil, Acheronian Idols (that some say resemble the mighty Cthulhu just a little too much). You can of course keep the original Default look and feel of the Player Portrait if you prefer. More options will undoubtedly become available in the future as time allows.
Because of the relationships between the Portraits and the Bottom Bars, the "Caligari Character Portraits" components have also been included in this package. These change the way the default (and hard to read for some) names that show up in the Character and Target Portraits above the Health/Stamina/Mana bars, as well as making the numbers/percentages on the stat bars easier to read. The Target portrait was also modified to display both friendly and hostile buffs for better pvp insights into your opponent.
Also included as part of the "Caligari Character Portraits" components are revamped Floating Character Portraits. They've had their vertical order reversed (name is on the bottom now) so they will fit nicely up on top. They also incorporate new health bars, etc. to make them look more consistent, rather than having both the player and target frames always left justified.
Like many of the Caligari UI Elements, the Bottom Bars will work alongside other mods that do not directly affect the Bottom Bars, Player/Target Portraits or the Floating Portraits themselves. As long as your UI of choice currently uses properly structured files, you should be able to mix and match for the most part to suit your needs. Unfortunately, there are no guarantees that all of these UI Elements will work with all other UI mods available.
