made by Blazeflack
This AddOn packs all previous requests for custom tweaks into a single package. It is easier to maintain and it is easier to use, a win win situation. It is meant to be a consolidation of all user requested tweaks, giving you, as a user, a way to have your UI working exactly like you want it to.

Every tweak is disabled by default, forcing you, the user, to decide which tweaks you would like to use and thereby eliminate any unwanted changes. Some tweaks come with customizable options, while others are of a nature where they don't need any options. As a rule of thumb, I try to provide options for any changes the tweak is making, where warranted, giving you 100% control over every tweak.

Bug Reports / Requests
I am no longer actively developing this addon. Real life keeps me busy, and I am not sure if I will ever find the time to get back on this project. Use it however you want. If you develop addons and want to take over this project, then let me know.

Current Tweaks
  • AFKPetModel: Allows you to specify a pet to be shown on the ElvUI AFK screen.
  • AuraIconSpacing: Allows you to set a spacing between individual aura icons for the units you choose.

  • BagsTextFormat: Allows you to choose which text format the Bags datatext uses.

  • GameMenuConfigButton: Adds an ElvUI Config button to the Game Menu (ESC).
  • MinimapSizeLimits: Lowers the minimum allowed minimap size.

  • PowerBarTexture: Allows you to use a separate texture for unitframe power bars.
  • PushedColor: Allows you to choose the color of the actionbar button when it is pushed down.
  • RaidControl: Allows you to change template of the Raid Control button or hide it altogether.

Castbar Text customization appears to be broken.

Angrily Sep 03, 2019 at 14:42

Hi. Will this work with classic? Thank you!

Firestormm Aug 16, 2019 at 14:20

I am unable to accept community invitation links with Chat Tweaks enabled. Is there some setting I have to change? I have to disable the addon to accept the community invitations.

Mope Jun 29, 2019 at 21:38

Ah RIP, there is no transparency option with the new default ElvU castbarbackdrop option. https://i.imgur.com/cXN4kVQ.png

Blazeflack Jun 29, 2019 at 09:17


It is no longer needed as it is part of ElvUI.

Mope Jun 16, 2019 at 03:34

any ETA on an update? Not being able to change the Castbar Background Color/Transparency is driving me crazy.

stusteh Apr 20, 2019 at 00:17

The auraicontext is how i moved the stack text... Is there any way I could revert back 1.46 somehow?

CaptainWaffles Apr 10, 2019 at 06:22

A recent change - 'Removed AuraIconText tweak as it is no longer compatibly with ElvUI."

I was using this feature of the addon to block/hide duration text on debuffs, just allowing stack count to show when applicable.

Does anyone happen to know if this is now possible otherwise? I would prefer to be able to hide the duration on debuffs for various reasons.

This has been fixed in v1.44. Please create a ticket for bug reports in the future, it was a lucky coincidence that I noticed your comment here.
