Buff Bars and Icons

Please check out the Gadgets:Buffs addon, if you want more advanced buff/debuff tracking.

Quick Start

You will see a round button with a Gear icon in the middle of your screen. Drag this button to where you want it by left clicking and dragging.

Right click on the button and choose 'Add Gadget' to add a gadget to your screen.

Left clicking on the button will unlock (and re-lock) all of your gadgets. When unlocked, Gadgets can be moved by dragging their movement handles (the white gear icon at the top corner of each gadget).

To alter an existing gadget, right click on it's movement handle while gadgets are unlocked, and choose 'Modify Gadget'.

When moving gadgets around on the screen, you can align them to another gadget by dragging the move handle over the top of another move handle. The gadget you are dragging will align itself either horizontally or vertically with it. If you move the gadget too far from the horizontal or vertical axes, alignment mode will turn off (it should hopefully become clear when you try it!).

Grid Snapping

Typing "/gadgets grid 8" for example, will snap all movement and resizes to an 8 pixel grid. Type "/gadgets grid" with no number to reset snapping.


The raid and group frames allow you to specify macros for various mouse buttons and the mouse wheel. These are standard RIFT macros, with a couple of extra Gadgets features:

Use @unit to refer to the unit the frame is showing. For example "cast @unit Healing Breath".

Use modifer it you want:

cast [shift] @unit Symbol of the Torch
cast Symbol of the Sun

Use the following syntax to have a macro carry out different actions depending on your current role:

:if role == 1 or role == 6 then
target @unit
:if role == 2  then
target @unit
cast Healing Spray
:if role == 3 or role == 4 or role == 5 then
target @unit
cast [shift] @unit Symbol of the Torch
cast Symbol of the Sun


Save, load and delete your profiles. How to save, load and delete your profiles you can see on my video guide;


I have borrowed some images from other people. I believe the licenses on these sources allow this, but if not, I will replace them.

  • Various bar textures from LibSharedMedia (WoW addon)
  • Orb images from Roth UI (WoW addon)
  • A few images from the Rift Fansite Kit

If you store your addons not in the my documents folder. This case you need to manualy download Gadgets but not with Curse Client.

    Would love to see a HPS Encounter/Live Indicator.

  • #45

    That's not a bad idea at all, in fact I have no idea why I didn't include those when I created the DPS ones, seeing as I'm normally either tanking or healing, and very rarely DPSing :)

  • #42

    Hey man, mentioned this a little bit ago but 2 requests/feedback:

    1.) Would be cool to create a gadget to let us know when we are PvP Flagged.

    2.) For the target gadget, maybe turn it Silver or some color for rare spawns?

    not sure how hard these are too insert in the game, love the add on!

  • #44


    A PvP indicator is definitely needed, I'll get one sorted out.

    Unfortunately, the rare spawns indicator would need a database of which mobs are rare, as we have no information from the API about them. I've steered clear of anything that needs this sort of data maintenance but if something gets added to the API, I'll add this.

  • #38

    Love the addon but some feedback.

    Raid Frames:

    Need to be able to scale them smaller, even at their smallest size these thigns dominate the screen.

    Seperatable groups, one giant block is meh.

    Click through option.  Right now even if you aren't in a raid the box prevents you from targeting or right-click to look.  A real pain that keeps me from wanting to use the raid frames (even though they're awesome).


    Thanks for the great addon!

  • #40


    The minimum size of the raid frame can be changed easily. I'll have a play and see what a reasonable absolute minimum is.

    If you don't want one giant block, have a look at the Group Frames gadget. I haven't yet copied the macro handling code over to these, but they let you split the raid frames up into 4 groups and orient them however you want (and of course, you could create 20 individual unit frames with the Raid Frame template applied, though that would be fairly masochistic :)).

    Click through is a massive pain, and there is no really good way to handle it yet. I keep nudging Zorba for a fix for this, but he's not got around to it. Due to the way the API works, we can't add/remove clickable frames while in combat, so rather than have an implementation that breaks frequently, I'm leaving it as it is until Zorba gives us a way to do it properly.

    Range fading is possible (Noshei has done it for his raid frames template, check out "Noshei's Gadgets"), but I haven't implemented this feature in the core library yet. It's on the list.

  • #41

    Thanks for the quick reply, about half the current minimum size of scalability is what I am personally looking for.  :)


    Thanks again!

  • #39

    Also, currently the raid frames only "grey out" for LoS, not range.

  • #36

    I really like the range finder, very nice.  I see that there are plans to add player radar.  Will this basicly open a window that shows how close fellow raid members are to you?

  • #37

    Yes, that is something I intended adding at some point, but didn't realise I'd mentioned it anywhere :)

  • #34

    since NkThings is basically done being worked on, you ever think about making the UF look a little more like NkThings, I love your configuation just I cant quite get it to look like the unit frames from NkThings

  • #35

    I've just had a look at the nkThings screenshots, and I can't see any reason I couldn't create a template that looked very similar. When I've finished the current set of things I'm working on, I'll have a go.

    nkThings isn't actually dead as far as I know, though. While there probably won't be many (or any) additional features added, Silvanoshei has picked up maintenance so the addon should continue to work.

  • #33


  • #31

    I absolutely love this mod after only fussing around with it for 40 mins over my lunchbreak today. A couple questions:

    1. Is it possible to scale the Health Orb style unit frames?  I have my UI reduced to like 65% or so usually and they're much smaller than I'd like.

    2. Would it be possible to get a gadget to track server latency?

    Thanks for the great mod, been looking for something a bit simpler than MyUI. 

  • #32

    Hi, and thanks :)

    Scaling the health orbs should be possible, though getting the font scaling right might take a bit of trial and error. I'll give it a go.

    With the latency, we have no way to measure that unfortunately - the API doesn't give us a call to find it out.
