Skin Cool Hi-Tech Unit Queue


Reaction score

It's been a long while since I submitted any resource. This is a UI (user interface) skin that replaces the default Unit/Research Queue in Wc3 (progress bar included). This particular queue has a hi-tech feel to it, but it is not that cool. I made this 100% freehand in Photoshop CS. I can't make sigs atm, but I can make UI skins. Btw this is my second unit queue submission here at TH.

Import Paths:
Here are the files inside the .zip in this thread, besides them their corresponding import paths when used in your map.
Unit Queue - UI\Widgets\Console\Human\human-unitqueue-border.blp
Unit Queue Progress Bar Border - UI\Feedback\BuildProgressBar\human-buildprogressbar-border.blp
Unit Queue Progress Bar Fill - UI\Feedback\BuildProgressBar\human-buildprogressbar-fill.blp

To make the 'Training' and 'Research' texts blend w/ the unit queue's color and theme, go to Advanced>Game Interface then look for Text - General - 'Training' and Text - General - 'Researching' fields, then apply a hex color code (for this particular queue, light blue and gray colors blend well). Done!

Please comment! And don't forget to give me credit when you use it in your map.:thup:

No offense, I like only the progress bar - it's just my taste probably. ^^ You get your +rep for the work anyway.
WoW its good... Nicely done. I need to ask a question btw... Can it be used for hero XP bar? Cuz would rly like to use it as a XP bar in my map.
P.S: Will give u credits
The progress bar of the queue can't be used as an XP bar. You need another separate texture for the XP bar. Before this I also planned on making an XP bar package, so I'll see what I can do:D.

Thanks guys!
I like it :D Good for a futuristic warcraft MOD.
Make a futaristic UI? That would be sick. Really nicely done. +rep. Just maybe don't make the numbers so cartoony. Mak the numbers a bit better. Thats all I found bad.
I'm planning to make a futuristic UI as well besides the XP bar (nice guess:D). It takes a lot of time to make the UI, about a month for me.

I know the numbers are a bit out, but I like the color. Thanks again!
I wanter to have a better XP bar, I hope you make one soon.....

If it's XP bar for Heroes, then it'll happen. Just some time it might take.

I'm quite happy with the progress I've made, but I'm not into Photoshop that much (when I go to college 2 years from now, that'll be the perfect time for me to master the program). It looks good because I made it while having fun :) Soon I'll go on with the xp bars and the futuristic UI.
I like it! Is it possible to have Windows Vista Green Bar for like loading and stuff? I'm downloading this for future use :D
For mods, If the unit queue needs some more improvements, I'd be able to do it. I forgot that the original psd file is still there ^_^
Judging arts is quite subjective - some like it, some don't.

I'm not a fan of hi-tech Warcraft stuff, but this is skinned quite nicely and would be a perfect addition to a hi-tech styled map.

I LOVE THIS! I seriously love this. I do. I DO! I'll definitely use this, +Rep for you!
I absolutely love the progress bar. Very well done there!

Looking forward if someone could create a hero xp bar out of this one!
The standard violet one is somewhat... boring after all these years :D

    I have converted the Headline News forum to an Article type forum. It will now show the top 20 threads with more detail of each thread.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    See how we like that.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I do not see a way to go past the 1st page of posts on the forum though
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It is OK though for the main page to open up on the forum in the view it was before. As long as the portal has its own URL so it can be viewed that way I do want to try it as a regular forum view for a while
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah I'm not sure what the deal is with the pagination.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It SHOULD be there so I think it might just be an artifact of having an older style.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I switched it to a "Standard" article forum. This will show the thread list like normal, but the threads themselves will have the first post set up above the rest of the "comments"
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I don't really get that article forum but I think it is because I have never really seen it used on a multi post thread
  • Ghan Ghan:
    RpNation makes more use of it right now as an example:

    I would like to see it again like Ghan had it the first time with pagination though - without the pagination that view will not work but with pagination it just might...
