Tidy Threat  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.8
by: danltiger [More]
Tidy Threat is a simple threat monitor which is simple enough for a novice to understand, yet powerful enough for a Tank.

Simple explanation:
While in combat, the status bar grows upward indicating how "hot" the enemy thinks you are. Causing damage or casting heals will raise that level.

If you reach the mark on the thermometer, the enemy will turn and start hitting YOU. As you continue to attack, the bar can continue to rise into the RED area, indicating the amount of threat that you would need to lose in order to shed the attention of the bad guy.

If you're DPSing: Don't go into the RED!
If you're tanking: Stay in the RED!

More Complex Explanation:
The status bar shows your threat compared to the next-highest threat for the rest of your group. If you are the top threat holder, it will also show how much your threat exceeds the next highest. In other words, if you are tanking and the bar extends above the line, into the red, you've got solid aggro.

No mode changes are required for Tank vs DPS usage; The interface is universal. For additional data, players can enable the Detail Window, which will display real threat numbers.

Type '/ttt' into the chat window to bring up the configuration panel, or right-click the Tidy Threat frame.

This is a very nice little threat meter. I'll try and use this in our next raid to see how it works out for me as a healer.

Would it be able to add an option to scale the whole thing? I really like the looks, but it's just too huge for my minimal UI

Thanks for your work,

Rhy

I don't see any problem putting in some option to scale it, other than the detail window text becoming unreadable (I'll restrict the scaling to the graphical components)

As a healer, you might not find much use in the main program, since you'd have to be selecting the target you're measuring threat for, but the mouseover threat (shown in the tooltip) has been quite useful when I'm healing.

That's perfectly true. But I play a tank at times too, and also have a little hunter alt that gets my attention at times.

If a scaling option wouldn't be much hassle for you to do, I'd love to see it in one of the future updates Would probably do it myself, but coding is just not my cup of tea ... -.-

Sure thing!

To clarify, Tidy Threat adds a detailed threat measurement to the tooltip (an improvement over the default), which is what I was referring to. I have not been advertising that feature on the project page - since it's still under development - but it's there, and it seems to work well. When I'm tanking, I find it helpful to watch packs of AoE mobs by mousing-over and glancing at the tooltip.

Aye, just noticed that while I was tanking heroic HoL this evening. First wondering where that was coming from, but then quickly realised it could only be Tidy Threat.

Really love your addon. Be it tanking, or as dps.. it's showing the threat in a very nice way which I'd prefer anytime over viewing numbers on Omen.

Thanks again

Haven't forgotten about ya! Been busy/tired with my new job, so my free time has been limited. I'll try to get an update posted next week (the weekend should give me a moment to take a look)

Hey there -

Finally got time to do a quick update for the scaling. Take a look at the 2nd line in TidyThreat.lua..

Hope that helps!

Re: tidy thread on curse ?

/bow
Thanks so much :-)

To answer your question; I had been considering it. In fact, I created an account over at Curse and started setting up a project page, but I was not fond of the interface (ok, I hated it) and never finished.

But, I'm curious; is there good reason to host on Curse, other than for the exposure/hits? No, I'm not being rhetorical, I'm genuinely interested, and willing to change my mind.

Re: Re: tidy thread on curse ?

The benefit of having it on curse is that some of us use the curse client almost exclusively. It makes updating addons, much easier and with a major patch on the horizon this is important. The only reason I found this nice addon was a guildie posted her ui with it and I thought I would give it a shot. I will admit I considered not doing it cause it wasn't on the curse client, but well that was just lazy.

Re: Re: Re: tidy thread on curse ?

Have you tried the MMOUI Client?

I can understand not wanting to have more than one updater (heck, I've refused even using ONE updater - haha), and I can also understand the site bias... I have my own bias; If I can't get it on WI, I usually don't bother.

I've uploaded one of my other addons (Tidy Plates) to Curse; Depending on my experience with that, I will consider putting Tidy Threat up, too.

This thing has saved my tail so many times...

...With it closer to my line of sight than Omen
Doesn't clutter up my screen, simple and to the point with the info it provides.

I'm just wondering tho: Are there any plans to clean this up any further? I mean, the Line with the Bulb in the bottom is great and all... <durp; brain fart> Plans for skinning? Like to make a simple, scalable line (I'd like to put this next to my squared MiniMap for the UI I am constructing for example)... Or should I get to work trying to get new graphix done? lol (I dunno anymore... I'm just thinkin' out loud! )

Re: This thing has saved my tail so many times...

I'm glad you like it! :-) It's the addon that gives me the most pride, actually, even though Tidy Plates is growing quite popular.

Actually, I've just finished a few designs for different themes. I'd appreciate any input, and if you'd like to design a theme (or at least, whip up a quick mockup in photoshop, describing what you'd like) I'll package it up along with the rest.

I'm going to be working on Tidy Threat VERY soon!

Tidy Threat question

Is there a way to set the options to be profile based?

I have my ui set up different for my tank vs my healer vs my dps and I would like to have all those stick rather than adjust each time I get into combat and go, oh ya, I need to adjust my tidy threat settings.

Awesome mod btw and would love it on Curse.com

Re: Tidy Threat question

Open the Tidythreat.toc file in Notepad (or whatever text editor you prefer). Change the line,

Code:
## SavedVariables: TidyThreatOptions
to
Code:
## SavedVariablesPerCharacter: TidyThreatOptions
Thar ya go! You'll have to change that line each time you update, unfortunately.

Have you tried MMOUI for auto-updates (since I assume that's what you use Curse for)? I'm still not sold on supporting two addon sites, and I like WI much better.
