Administrative Note:
No one forces you to use their UI's


Message to User:
They exist for the general populace that don't want to build their UIs from scratch.


Original Post:
I'm sorry but functional as the UI may be, I fail to understand why anyone would want to use this in preference to something like this (http://www.tankspot.com/forums/f120/40123-blackfriday-s-ui-addon-list.html) when given the choice.

Functional + looks neat & tidy > functional

I've seen a lot of UI's presented in these forums and various other sources that are probably superb functionally but they look completely half arsed and untidy (like this Firstblood UI for example (http://www.tankspot.com/forums/f120/32785-firstblood-ui.html) which to be honest is dreadful). If you are going to create a UI I don't understand why you wouldn't then also make it at least relatively presentable (which this one isn't, it looks awful in my opinion).

For the amount of effort you put into making an awesome UI why on earth wouldn't you go the extra 10% and make it visually appealing & logically organised on screen? You have to look at the damn thing every day after all!

Apologies if that's a rather contraversial post but I really do think some of the much vaunted UI packs on this and other forums are terribly over-rated and in actual fact look half finished.
