Not sure if it has been asked before but looking for an addon that shows the timers on your skills for recast times, like Hardened Ward and the like, without using LUI to do it. Thanks in advance!

    LUA as in the scripting language?

    If so, you are out of luck since the ESO API is, wait for it, written in LUA ...

    Unless you mean AUI, in which case you can simply download AUI and use it as a base and write your own AddOn.

    I have fixed to read LUI. Work all day and dealing with LUA errors and other things really mess with the brain.

    In that case, replace AUI with LUI in my comment above.

    Shouldn't be too hard to figure out how they did it and do just that part yourself ...

    Yeah I dont like LUI extended anymore either. it used to be better than it is now. the new layout sucks.
    Playing your character the way your character should play is all that matters. Play as well as you can but never betray the character. Doing so would make playing an mmoRPG pointless.

    Action Duration Reminder linked above is the most similar thing to the way the bar highlight for abilities work in LUI. BanditsUI also does it: https://www.esoui.com/downloads/info1643-BanditsUserInterface.html

    Both of those have the addition of what I just refer to as a "swap bar" that shows icons for your other bar's active abilities when you bar swap - ADR has a little more customization for that than BUI. I want to add the feature to LUIE in the future as well.

    If you don't mind me asking and you happen to read this thread again, what in particular do you dislike about the newer features of LUI?

    They changed the layout of the UI elements to one I hate, and I Can't figure out how to change it.
