Hello everyone. Now that you’ve been able to use the UI Customization features implemented with Game Update 1.2, the developers would like to request your feedback. In this thread, please post to let us know what UI features or functions you would like to see implemented in the future.

We are already working on a few areas based on your feedback, such as additional hotbars and more customizable buff bars. While we do not have an estimate for when these features will be implemented, we are hoping that more great ideas will come from you!

Thanks in advance for your thoughts. We’re looking forward to seeing your suggestions.

What about an user-friendly XML upload of your user interface on the swtor.com website?

I would LOVE to see numbers and percentages on Focus Targets. This would be incredibly helpful for some fights where mechanics trigger at certain percentages.

Release the UI API to the modding community, and do it yesterday.

No matter what you guys do to the UI you will never touch the custumization imagination your entire community could bring.

1.2 was nice, but not close to what anyone coming from (the game that will not be named) will tolerate for long.
Evil will always triumph, because good is dumb.

I agree.

Bioware... let the community finish fixing the UI so you guys can focus on other things... like merging servers (hint hint)

Make it so we can use player made graphics for any and all UI elements, this would help a lot in giving the UI a good personal feel to it. Allow removal of portraits on UI elements in combination with the player made graphics.

Another thing that needs to be changed is the ability to scale "Secondary UI elements", currently you have to do a global scale before changing the other elements to have them smaller than original.

I'd like to see the x, y option so that I can perfectly position my UI. Takes me hrs right now to line the darn pixels up.
D'ya like dags? Dags? What? Yeah, dags.
Oh, dogs. Sure, I like dags. I like caravans more.

1) Would love to see being able to use different textures for the skin of the UI frames. Not a big fan of the current blue.
2) The ability to hide any frame during combat. Don't want a choice few, want the ability to hide them all if I so choose.
3) Name plates that don't get hidden when in crowded situations.
4) Able to select a target by clicking on a name plate. The targeting icon in game does not always pick up the right target even though I'm moused over an individual. Might be easier if I could just target a name plate.
5) Separate out buffs and debuffs into their own frames.

6) CSS or XHTML skinning of UI by users. I know this one is probably a pipe dream but I would love to be able to make my own textures and skins for the UI.

Thank you.

  • Ability to scale and filter buffs/debuffs.
  • Buffs/debuffs need a countdown timer function you can turn on/off
  • Ability to turn off Portraits
  • Ability to "lock" certain buffs so they can't be clicked on to remove
  • Better buff/debuff seperation
