Reader UI of the Week: Alphabot Evolution

Alphabot UI

Olivia Grace at WoW Insider: A little while back, I put out the call for UIs with a bit of history, a bit of evolution to them. I love seeing how my UI has evolved over the years, starting off with the basic Blizzard UI, until I realised that I could tinker with the overall scale, and then began adding unit frame addons, then action bar addons, castbar addons, and the whole thing got completely out of hand and escalated to the point where I started writing addon and UI columns for WoW Insider! And it’s always interesting to see how others’ UIs have developed, too.

Today, we’re delving into the past and present of Alphabot’s UI. He’s sent over several pictures, of both his current UI and his UIs past. So here, in chronological order, are UI shots one, two, three, four and five, and his current UI out of combat, in combat, and with everything on — in test mode, so to speak. Let’s move into Alphabot’s email.

My motto, if you will, when developing this was to keep it simple while maintaining effectiveness and keep it (mostly) symmetrical.
