Tidy Plates: Simple Theme  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 5.0.1
by: danltiger [More]

Here's another theme for Tidy Plates.

Note: Make sure you've got just ONE Tidy Plates theme enabled in your addons menu, and, that you've got the newest version of Tidy Plates; I'm always breaking/fixing something.

I really like this skin because of the slimness. As a tank you often have 5+ mobs around you and it is imperative to have the overview. This skin is best for this purpose. Most other skins are either to big or provide not enough information (because I need the names of mobs to find the right one in a group).

This skin has a compact height but it could be even more compact without the wasted pixels in the width (the space without any information between name and the level box).

Any chance you can change that?

Initially, my thought was; No, because it would require scaling the overlay image, which would squish and distort it. Tidy Plates just swaps out images, and adjusts the sizes of those images.

BUT, It's possible to fake this effect by creating a multi-plate theme, with a couple standard lengths, and have the GetStyle() function swap to the appropriate size, depending on the length of the Name string. Even then, there might be some issues scaling underlying unit frame during combat. It's worth a shot, if someone wants to try it out.

Hey, as a tank I really like this theme, but the thing I find most useful with Tidyplates is the whole scaled up if not aggroed to you part. is there a way to incorporate it into this plugin?

The scaling is a function of the theme file. Theme writers have the freedom to implement each of the functions differently. The default theme that comes with Tidy Plates has some nice features. "Simple" is one of the earliest themes for Tidy Plates, made as an example, but you could easily copy and paste some of the code between the two. I will attempt to update the Simple theme with the default coding, but it might take some time since I'll have to fit it around my holiday shopping.. lol

Ah. Well I'll certainly give it a shot, but whenever you have a chance. =) Thanks

Does it consistently crash your client? What other addons are running? Skinner? Other nameplate addons?

How can I change the size of nameplates? They are too big for me, I need smaller, but I can't find a parameter I need.

Pop open the lua file for Simple (it's theme.lua)..

And paste this code just under the 5th line...

Code:
local function ScaleDelegate(unit)
	-- Change the 1 to whatever you'd like..
	return 1
end

config.SetScale = ScaleDelegate

For boss mobs, or hostile mobs more than 10 levels above you, this theme shows an empty level area instead of "??" or a skull icon. How could I get it to show "??"?

Open up the theme.lua file, and scroll down to the bottom..

Add the green text...
Code:
config.frame = {
	width = 168,
	height = 24,
	x = 0,
	y = 0,
}

config.dangerskull = {
	width = 16,
	height = 16,
	x = 2,
	y = 2,
	anchor = "RIGHT",
}

config.options = {
	showEliteColor = false,
	showLevel = true,
	showName = true,
	showSpecialText = false,
	showDangerSkull = true,
}

if not TidyPlatesThemeList then TidyPlatesThemeList = {} end
TidyPlatesThemeList["Simple"] = config
I'm not sure if the skull will be in exactly the right place, so you may have to tweak the x/y/width/height values to your liking.

If anyone else wants to do this, I find the following values work better:
Code:
config.dangerskull = {
	width = 14,
	height = 14,
	x = -6,
	y = 0,
	anchor = "RIGHT",
}

This is the theme that is closest to my desires. Here is a lsit of what I need from a tidy plates theme.

1. I need the Blizz standard Skull picture included, and positioned in the place where mob level is at the moment.
2. I need the Blizz standard Elite skin included and positioned on it's own default place.
3. I need the name of the mobs in white, so that I can clearly see them.
4. I need also the theat glowing effect/castbar that this addon already has.
5. I want the health bars to be as low height as possible and the name text as big as possible, but with balanced dimensions so that the name allows me to see the health that they have.

Anny plans to include those features? (is just too hard for me to draw anything to make my own theme :| )
