Steel v1 – An 8-Man User Interface for Star Wars: The Old Republic
===============
Designed by: SageEidolon - 17 January 2014
===============

I. DESCRIPTION

Steel v1 is an 8-Man User Interface for Star Wars: The Old Republic designed for maximum keybind gameplay: i.e. controlling movement with the mouse and activating all abilities with the keyboard. This style of gameplay is facilitated by providing a large, unobstructed central space for mouse steering and centralized quickbars arranged to mirror a keyboard for rapid hand-eye coordination. Players who tend to mouse-click on abilities will still enjoy the consolidated arrangement of Steel v1 with room for 60 quickbar slots in the center-bottom portion of the screen, providing minimal mouse travel to the sides or top of the screen. The Steel v1 UI was designed for 2560x1440 resolution, but a 1920x1080 resolution XML file is provided as a consideration.

II. CONTENTS

Steel v1 is provided in compressed form. Extracting the compressed files will provide the following files:
