I've been playing on NA server (from NZ) for 4 years but was not really getting involved in EU forum
2 years ago I felt many icon mods are poorly designed so I started my own project, trying to focus on the most important info and visibility of texts.
Here are one of the styles... and made a few tweaks to suit an English client. hopefully you'll like it.
It is designed to be somewhat transparent (like the Windows Aero) so icons won't totally block your view of the battlefield.
You have to use the mod with XVM otherwise icons on the right side would be mirrored and unreadable.
