This addon has been discontinued.
Well, I'm back, sorry for not answering in a while, been busy and in vacation and don't have much time lately to mess with the mod, or the will for that matter :S
Well, for those reasons I won't be updating the mod anymore, if anyone wants to use any code from it in their addons, or even pick this one up and continue it, feel free to do so, if you have any questions about the code just ask me and I'll try to answer.
I'll make some simpler but usefull (I hope) addons in the future I guess, but nothing like this, not for now at least. I'm gonna update the first post with nextday's fixed version and the one that works with MiniUI. Anyway, thanks for using the addon, cya around :P
version working in 0.1.64 (thanks to nextday)
version working with MiniUI (thanks to shadowexile)

Modders can make addons for the mod. What are the advantages of doing this? As an addon you get a button inside the menu of the Improved UI, where you can put all the options for your mod/addon, instead of each addon having a button somewhere in the interface, while you have your code on your own package. The only difference between an addon and a standalone is the options inside the menu, any mod can be converted into an addon. A simple guide here.
- Death Timer
You can easily see when a hero is dead and how long until they respawn, you can also enable the mod to warn your team on chat when an enemy, ally or yourself has just respawned.
- Improved Minimap
A movable and scalable minimap that you can toggle to show/hide with a hotkey, you can also change it's opacity and make it clickable or not.
- Target UI
A frame that shows the HP/Mana of the target, you can move and scale it, toggle Buffs/Debuffs and Effective Health (both Physical and Magic).
- Info Panel
A small panel with a lot of information that you can toggle on/off individually, it shows the info of your Active Unit and your Target. Some of the info include Dps, both Armors %, both Effective Healths, HP and Mana regen/s, time till full HP/Mana in seconds, Movespeed and others.
- Team UI
A frame for each Allied Hero that you can move wherever you want, showing name, HP/Mana bars, Gold, Skills levels and cooldowns, with a couple of layouts you can chose from. Also you can chose to show bars below the Ally hero units' hp/mana bar, wich show the status of each of their skills.
- Movable Chat
The game chat is now movable so you can place all the rest of the panels where you want without getting in the way of your messages.
Some other minor options you can turn on like buff times above the buff icons.
- Very Customizable
You can toggle on/off all of the features so that you only use exactly what you want. Many of the frames are movable and scalable, and all of them have various options to customize them further, all of wich stay saved after you exit the game.
- Easy to use
Just install it, open the menu by clicking on the "blue +" on the top-left corner while in a game, configure it however you want and you are good to go.
- fixed the voting setsave problem
- fixed the hide death timers when voting option
- you can now chose to show bars below the ally hero units' hp/mana bar,
wich show the status of their skills in the same colors as the team ui.
**on this release it only updates when the hp %, mana % and level of the
hero changes, so it will update fairly regularly, but there may be times
when it doesnt update for a while, like if the hero is full mana and hp, but
on a normal game it should not be a problem. I'll try to find a way to
- added an option to hide the respawn timer if there is a voting that you

- added a confirmation to the reset settings
- added addon support with honmod, there's a link to an addon that shows
the juking map as an example, addons are honmod only, cant do without it,
any questions just ask
- fixed buffs with no duration showing 0s sometimes

A screenshot, 'a little' outdated:

- "+" somewhere else as an option
- chat macros
- creep/rune spawn timer

- Juking Map
It shows an image with the Caldavar map and most of the juking spots, the addon uses the same options as the minimap options, with a hotkey to toggle, options to enable, change scale and opacity. This is meant as an example for modders to make their own addons, but it is fully functional.
- Levelup Hotkeys
With this addon you can chose a hotkey to levelup any of your skills, including stats.
- Autocast Hotkeys
With this addon you can chose a hotkey to toggle the autocast of any skills.
