Client Version: 5.0.4
Stuf is a replacement to StellarUF. Stuf has the same initial layout and feel of StellarUF, but Stuf is highly customizable.
Do not expect much since this mod’s purpose is to replace the Blizzard’s main unit frames, not other unit frame mods. I’ll most likely deny requests to copy random features.

How to Use
- Basic – make sure Stuf_Options is enabled; it’s required for initializing defaults and changing settings
- Options menu – “/stuf” or check the Addons tab in Interface Options
- Hide party in raid – Stuf obeys Blizzard’s option to “Hide Party Interface in Raid”
- Show/Hide elements – many are hidden/shown by setting the alpha or color alpha to zero
- Slider nudging – (bug Ace3 people for a better way), I do the following:
- Move your cursor over the text above the slider, a tooltip should be showing.
- Move your cursor up until the tooltip disappears.
- Move your cursor back over the slider until the tooltip reappears.
- Now you can nudge using mouse wheel.
- For sliders, you can also manually input values and press enter.
- Many options, so I suggest checking each option one-by-one
- Options menu –“/stufraid” or check the Addons tab in Interface Options
- Basic – StufRaid does not require Stuf, and Stuf does not require StufRaid
- Special text – install UTF8 to support special characters for the name text sub-string feature
Features Lacking (forever)
- No profiles, but you can save per character. Profiles would at least double the memory usage (plus more for each profile you create) of Stuf due to its massive saved variables. Check out Reflux to add profiles options to Stuf and other mods.
- Showing raid instead of party frames when in a party.
- Advanced buff/debuff filtering for main units.
- Switching frames when in vehicle
- Full-featured casting bar (no GCD, breathe, cooldowns, etc)
- Anything that would really kill performance and lack usefulness
- Anything for which already has a great standalone mod
- You cannot right-click Stuf’s player buff icon to cancel shape-shift forms (ie. druid forms and shadow form) since they’re protected now.
- You cannot select “Set Focus” from the right-click menu. Make a “/focus” macro instead.
