I know most of the users here don't like "compilations", actually I don't like them either. However I have been working on QT UI for some time now, and have amassed roughly 60,000 downloads across multiple sites in the last 10 months or so. I know the game well, am familiar with most classes, functions, spells, instances, etc. I must be doing something right because the feedback I get regarding QT UI is pretty decent.
Alot of thanks goes to the Ace community here. Big ups to all the authors and helpful helpers on these forums :)
QT UI contains a great collection of UI mods geared towards Alt-a-holics like myself.
I was tired of manually enabling and disabling mods when I wanted to play my different characters.
Most mods included have been modified, extensively tested and tweaked for efficiency.

Looks like a great line-up, Devla! I do have one question though ...
Why not Beginnings instead of Startup? Startup is a bit long in the tooth now and based off of old code, Beginnings was designed to do so much more, it's far more powerful and it comes with the Endings module to do stuff on logout. It can also do stuff per-char and per-class like Startup can - but via the ace profile system, thus saving overhead.
I got sick and tired of Sarf's AuraAspects a while ago and decided to look for an alternative, I found Aspected but it didn't have the alternative stuff for Shamans (you know, the weapon buffs and other buffs).
Now it does.
So you might want that version of Aspected, give it a whirl.
I was just more familiar with the code of Startup and did what I wanted it to do, no more no less.
Beginnings is a great mod. I confess I only tried one of the very early versions, so its probably changed alot. Last I looked, it was using the Ace class/profile system, which I could never get working right. I can understand basic stuff but am not a hardcore code monkey like most of you here.
Basically here's what I use Startup for:
1) Run /slash commands or functions when a new profile is created
2) Run /slash commands or functions on each load
3) Detect Class and load a Class specific set of mods using the LoadIT mod
4) Run /slash commands or functions after all mods and commands have been loaded
I'll check out your version of Aspected, thanks alot. Does it work for Priest Shadowform and include bar switching options per form?
Bah! Rowne beats me fair and square to another addon. I was also going to Ace Aspected (i'm assuming that's what he did as well), and call it... ready? AspectUs (like Asbestos?).
OMFGROFLMAOGeez! I kill me!
Alright, so I suck. But it was a dream I had...
Back to topic! Great work Devla! I find myself saying, "HOLY CRAPOLA-AUNT-JAMYMA THATS A LOT OF STUFF GOING ON THERE!!!11!1!", but I generally like the use of such a HUGE list of addons in such an organized way. Props!
Run /slash commands or functions when a new profile is created
You mean that you want to run slash-commands only the very first time something is seen and then delete them? So the first time warrior is seen, you wish to delete lines after firing them? That's all too possible. Just add lines that use Beginnings' own delete option.
For example ...
1. Do this.
2. Do that.
3. Do the other.
4. Del 2.
5. Del 3.
6. Del 4.
7. Del 5.
In other words, you could include commands to delete lines then you could include further commands to delete the commands which delete the commands. So you can even clean up after you. Beginnings is just that powerful.
Run /slash commands or functions on each load
/ace profile Beginnings character
/ace profile Beginnings class
That works every time for me, give it a try.
Detect Class and load a Class specific set of mods using the LoadIT mod
That can be done by supplying the correct LoadIT slash-commands to a class-based version of Beginnings.
Run /slash commands or functions after all mods and commands have been loaded
Beginnings always runs after all variables have been loaded, it's improper and unsafe to run anything before that time and it should only ever be done in very unusual circumstances (for example, hooking API-level functions or frames to destroy them, rather than to actually use them -- like in BugSack).
I'll check out your version of Aspected, thanks alot. Does it work for Priest Shadowform and include bar switching options per form?
Yup, it's from the very latest Aspected.
I'm actually cleaning up the code currently and I'll release my own version soon. I also plan on including spells for other races and entries for things like "Mark of the Wild" and "Thorns" for Druids.
