About PitBull Unit Frames 4.0

PitBull4 is a continuation of PitBull.

Differences from PitBull 3:

  • It's mostly done, but not entirely done thus why there are still only betas (despite this it is still very stable).
  • Documentation is written before functions
  • Much easier for third-party extensions.
  • Options will be much, much simpler. In 3.0, there's about 200 panels that you can mess with, it's overwhelming. I want to bring this down to somewhere around 10.
    • Layouts are defined deterministically and unit groups use the layout rather than ad-hoc layouts on a per-unit basis. This will make setting up your unit frames far, far easier.
    • Due to some decisions made, 4.0 is actually more configurable than 3.0. As a layout designer, you will have a lot more control over how things look. You can have different fonts on the same frame, different textures, more precise positioning, and a whole slough of other things.
  • CPU Efficiency will be taken much more seriously.
  • It uses Ace3 instead of Rock.

    I have always loved Pitbul, but after switching to Pitbull 4 I can no longer see my raid frames. I even tried making a new group and selecting the "raid" layout. I did set it to the 25 man raid config mode, and even tried making the frames really huge in scale so maybe i could see the edges if they had miraculously wandered offscreen. Still no raid frames.

    Is there a module to show HoT's?

    I would like to see an indicator when my HoTs drop off so I may reapply them? Currently using Grid2 and for some reason I cant see a green indicator for them and I am looking for another option.

    I already use these frames for player and target and main tanks, so this would be great. ( plus I could see the mana bars for when preists need innervate.)

    I still would love to suggest a more advanced heal setup. One that goes beyond just what the current Visual Heal does. In that to enable keybind capacity in Pitbull I use Clique. Would love it if Pitbull added its own keybind setup. I feel this wouldn't be a very hard thing to do. And would keep Pitbull users having to load 3 add-ons, when the 1 could already do it. Yes Clique is awesome and what I use right now. Just would rather see what Clique offers added directly to Pitbull. Even if it was added as a module. As well as adding some of the same functionality Healbot offers in an additional module as well. Because in truth keybinds should be very easy to add in. And also Healbot is a healer unitframe. Makes it almost pointless to be a healer and have Healbot and Pitbull both loaded. And I dislike the look and feel of Healbot. And have always prefered Pitbull to do my healing. However it really does lack healer "friendliness". For example to heal I have to target the unit, then cast specific heal. Instead of just targeting the unit and at the same time healing them (as in what Healbot would do). Hoping more advanced healer functions are added. And keybinds would work for all roles.

    Perhaps it would be more useful for you to list the features that Healbot has that Clique/Pitbull can't provide for you at the moment. From an addon author's perspective, adding an orthogonal feature based on a request like this doesn't make sense. Pitbull and Clique do two completely different things, and it makes sense for them to be separate addons that do their jobs very well.
  • #822
    Clique does what Clique does very well. There's really no reason to duplicate this functionality in PitBull. I'm already able to do exactly what you describe as your reason for needing HealBot with just Clique and PitBull. So I really don't understand why you think you need HealBot. Nor do I really understand why you think you would prefer the binding support built into PitBull when Clique does it just fine already.

    I just wanted to say if it weren't for Pitbull, my experience playing for the last 3 years wouldn't be the same. Thanks so much for the awesome work. And Pitbull 4 manages to go even further in awesomeness.
  • #818
    Agreed, I love pitbull. :)
  • #816
    having same prob as hawkzombie, if there is anymore than about 10 ppl in raid it just disappears and sometimes pop back.
  • #824
    Found a temporary 'workaround' if you absolutely need them. Go into the Pitbull options and under the Config Mode drop down menu, select the raid size you want. It's messy as hell, but at least you can see them until something more is found out about this bug or what possible addon could be conflicting with it.
  • #815
    is there any plans to take over the tooltip as well?

    Meaning i can edit were and how it works just like with cowtip? ( not just like but close )

    This would be a new feature.
  • #819
    The Pitbull of tooltips is TipTac. It is highly customizable. And it is also available for download from Curse. I would rather keep Pitbull centered on unitframes, than add features other add-ons already do.
  • #814
    I'm having trouble with the 25 man raid frames as well...whenever someone is added past 10 people, they just disappear, and randomly pop back. I've been using this as part of the ArkiveUI pack, but updated it all at 3.3...dunno what could be causing it.
  • #812
    Well, took the plunge in to Pitbull Unitframe 4.0... The fact that Pitbull 3's DK page is completely broke drove me this way.

    After about 45 minutes tweaking, I was able to get most of the functionality back. I still have not adjust all of the texts yet, but for the most part, frame is working.

    something buggy Shefki, and I can't post on ace cause I can't make an acc. anyways with the range fader it seems to malfunction when I am targetting hostiles. I play a Priest(don't know if this is isolated), and with hostile range I have to be in melee range for my target to be @ full opacity. I've looked @ the default code and tried to change the spells which u've designated and it didn't work. So just thought it should be something u would like to know:)
  • #808
    Guys pls if anyone knows can u tell me how to set party members to descend (new party members above the old ones and not below like normal) Descending option in group options thingy doesnt work :S
