About Sunn - Viewport Art

Sunn's Viewport Art allows you to change the size of the rendered world area (viewport) and adds textured artwork in the non-rendered areas.

New: Dual-spec profile switching.

Problems? See the Frequently Asked Questions


Use "/sunnart" (or "/sa") for the options gui. Use "/sunnart help" for console commands


There are 4 panels in SunnArt, top, bottom, left and right. By default each will use the same theme although they can be set up with different themes, overlaps and dimensions using the advanced options.

Art Packs

Art packs are optional and should be installed as if they were separate addons (although they are useless without the SunnArt addon).

Extract the zipped folder into your interface/addons folder for it to function.

Previews of the artwork in the packs are available in the screenshots on this page.

Art Packs are available on this site

There are other art packs available that have been submitted by users. Search for "Sunn" on Curse or check for Optional Files on WoWInterface.

Custom Artwork

Artwork from any standard panels addon may be used with SunnArt. Just set them up using the in-game interface or by editting CustomTheme.lua.

File formats

  • Files must be .TGA or .BLP format
  • Be sure to set the alpha channel if your artwork contains any transparency
  • Panels can be constructed from 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 separate sections, numbered from left to right (eg. <art file>1.tga, <art file>2.tga ... <art file>5.tga)
  • Each section MUST have dimensions that are a power of 2 (ie, 128, 256, 512, 1024 etc) - this is a limitation of all artwork to be used in WoW.
  • Only files within the Interface\Addons\ structure are available to the addon

Using CustomTheme.lua

  • Save your artwork sections in Interface\Addons\SunnArt
  • Open CustomTheme.lua in any text editor
  • Follow the instructions in the file
  • Any number of themes can be set up in CustomTheme.lua

Using the in-game interface

All you need to know is the path to the artwork files, the amount of overlap and the number of sections the artwork is split into. Enter these into the Advanced options screen, Enter a name for your theme and click save. The theme will now be available to all your characters.

Submitting Artwork

I'm looking for a talented artist or two to help create a new Art Pack. Please submit your editted files or a complete screen-size file so that I may split it into compatible files and create a "How-To" tutorial for others.

If you have artwork that you would like to submit for Art Pack 10 and onward, please mail it to [email protected] and if I like it then I will include it in the next release.

These are some addons that will help organise your UI so that elements may be moved off the world screen and into the artwork areas of this addon. All of these addons use the same libraries as Sunn Viewport Art, which means alot of the code and resources are re-used rather than bloating your UI with lots of different code that does that same thing.

Action Bars - Dominos or Bartender4

Minimap - BasicMinimap and Minimap Button Frame or SexyMap

Chat Frame - Prat

Unit and Raid Frames - Pitbull and Grid

    In the screen shots it shows more art than whats in the download..How do i get the ones in the screenshots?
    Such as the illidan and BC.

    Sunnart profiles have been hard-coded to use per-character settings, exactly as you describe. I don't have any problems with different settings for all my chars so maybe you could test it a little and report back with the results.

    Sunn, great piece of software. Works flawlessly for me. I do have one request, however. Could you add the ability to choose from different Profiles, like many of the other Ace addons have?

    The reason for this is that I have quite a few alts. And all have different bartender buttton arrangements. One might be 3 rows high and another only 1 row. Since Sunn Art currently has only one setting, I end up with a lot of artwork left over for a toon with one row of buttons in order to make it look right for a toon with three button rows.

    Thanks qand again, great job

  • #109

    Can you add these?

  • #110

    any update ?

  • #112

    The picture title says they're from Art Pack 5.

  • #111

    I have never seen the ones in the bottom pic? Were they included or are they available some where for download?

  • #114

    The strata of all SunnArt frames is set to BACKGROUND and mouse is not enabled on any of them. I've never used discordframemodifier so I can't help with that issue

  • #113

    My main bar (trinytybars) cannot be turned to next/previous panel with my mouse scroll/up, when mouse is over any of the sunart created area...

    Please make sure you disable mouse action on the design areas! In this form I cant really use it to my biggest sadness. :(

    Update: Wanted to do the job (disable mouse actions on the bottom and top area) using discordframemodifier but there are no real layers created for the art, so I believe thats the problem or something, since DFM cant even see what layer is that.

  • #118

    Nope, Sunnart will find any pack if it's set up correctly....sweet!

  • #115

    So do I download art pack 4 and just put it in my addons folder or do I need to put it in a moe specific folder in the Sunnart folder?

  • #116

    EXACTLY the addon I've been looking for, and works flawlessly. Thank you!

  • #117

    Fantastic mod, this is just the kind of thing I've been looking for to make my UI a little shexier.

  • #120

    That's not one of my artpacks unfortunately. Download the one from this page.

  • #119

    In the Art Pack 5, theres skins like frozen or ice mail, but i dont see them on the addon, i have downloaded the art pack 5 ( but i only see the Melted faces skin
