[Addon] Simple Panel Setup

Hey guys, I'm looking into a simple black rectangle panel I can install to backfill my action bars. I would also like to ask, is it hard to set these up? Does it take much memory? Are there light alternatives of these?

A screenshot of my UI: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images...111001410.jpg/

Oh, also, I know you are are addon experts - I'd like any suggestions you have to improve my Ui, it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Your best bets:
http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-a...kg-panels.aspx
http://www.wowinterface.com/download...lizzartUI.html

More lightweight options, but require you to modify the Lua file:

http://www.wowinterface.com/download...itePanels.html

A completely different option:
http://www.wowinterface.com/download...ewportArt.html

Talking

KgPanels is a great addon, especially if you're into aesthetics and getting your UI just the way you want it. I used to use it and got a little carried away... I now use SunnArt, it is basically preconfigured bottom/top, right/left panels you can drop into your UI so its very easy to set up. It also includes a viewport (basically creates a deadzone so your ui doesn't hog up a large percentage of your screen real estate) which makes sense for me since I don't care much for minimalist set ups and like lots of info displayed. I also have a big monitor, so the viewport works out. If you don't have much on your screen, I'd go with KgPanels and just put objects where you want them (ie. a black panel behind your action bars, etc.) and not worry about the viewport. Sounds like you simply want to add some art to your UI, in that case I agree with ^ her, KgPanels. KgPanels is a whole game in itself, enjoy.

My recommendation right here. It's done in Lua, but from experience, I can say it's by far easier, and quicker for basic panels than the others are.

Am I the only one who sees the Private Server item in that picture?

Hahah, yeah - a guildie posted that in guild chat moments prior to taking the screenshot, I figured I'd keep it in as a treat.

That item is perfectly linkable on Live servers, as it's afaik just one of the many test items Blizz left in the game, so it's not some wierd custom item

and since the OP is in a cata dungeon with fully working addons and all, I don't think he's on a private server, if we're talking about that subject ..
