Runescape – User Interface Recommendations and Tips

Basics

Press “L” to toggle lock/unlock interface in order to drag, resize and re-arrange your UI. Gameplay – make yourself familiar here. A lot of useful settings here. Worth mentioning are area looting & the different skilling options. Interface Settings – toggle slim headers, XP pop-ups, show reset timers and make X progress to mention a few. Controls – customise keyboard and mouse sensitivity, keybinds and toggle camera type. Graphics Settings – graphic settings. Audio Settings – audio settings. Combat Settings – select combat mode and which stats to recieve XP in for the combat styles.

General recommendations

Slim headers – what do we need large headers for? Gameplay settings – take a few and make yourself familiar here. Many useful QoL settings. Lock interface when not editing.

How to create a customized UI

1. Start out by resetting your current UI by going to the main menu (ESC) then go to “Quick Load Layout” and select “Retro”.

2. Resize the game window so it is exactly as you would like it. Personally I have my game window occupying 70% of my screen. Ignore this if you play on fullscreen.

3. Main menu then “Edit Mode” then “3D World Editing”. Resize your “Game View” to something like this. (we will get back to this later).

4. Now open everything you want accessible at all times while playing RuneScape. It will look messy at first don’t worry – we will make this look good.

5. Play around with the placement and sizes of your interfaces boxes. This may take some time and you may have to change the “Game View” several times.

6. Main menu then “Edit Mode” then “Gameplay HUDs Editing”. Change the placement and sizes of the different HUDs.

7. Congratulations with your new interface!

Tips & Tricks

If your gameplay is stuttering go to “Controls” then check that your camera type is set to RS3.

Technology – How to Find Out About the Windows Lock Screen Image or Spotlight Image

I had a certain image two days in a row on windows spotlight lock screen that looked like a half crescent moon like sand dune structure and wondered where it was, for reference, here is the image I was talking about:

Windows spotlight lock screen image
Windows spotlight lock screen image

Now after a bit of googling for things like “what is the big sand half crescent on the windows spotlight” and “what is the big desert structure/sculpture on the windows spotlight” with no luck I pressed CTRL+L to get back to the lock screen and investigate further. When you look at the top right of the lock screen there is an icon “like what you see?”, if you hover over it it tells you where this is:

Icon "like what you see?
Icon “like what you see?

Even better than that, if you click on the middle icon “What do we have here?” it will take you to a bing search for the building or location in question:

Icon "What do we have here?"
Icon “What do we have here?”

For those that are interested, it turns out this is actually not a “half crescent moon like sand dune structure” but in fact its the Auditorio de Tenerife in Santa Cruz, Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain). An auditorium, who’d have thought it?

Runescape – Source Of Denial Achievement Guide – Pick fruit from a Sq’irk tree in the Sorceress’s Garden without stopping

Source Of Denial is one of the new Runescape achievements which is actually really easy to achieve and can be done in 1 minute. Basically you need to pick fruit from a Sq’irk tree in the Sorceress’s Garden without stopping and it awards 10 runescore points. One has to start right beyond the entrance gate and pick a fruit from the tree without stopping. Running is imperative, and it is done most easily in the winter garden.

Go winter and look for this position:

Source Of Denial - Pick fruit from a Sq'irk tree in the Sorceress's Garden without stopping.
Source Of Denial – Pick fruit from a Sq’irk tree in the Sorceress’s Garden without stopping.

When you see the spirit click on the sq’irk tree and let your pixels do the running – as you near the tree click on it again so it picks it straight up.

Job done.
