Tidy Plates: Knurl Theme (With PVP Class Icons)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 5.2
by: danltiger [More]

This theme is meant for some old version of Tidy Plates. (5-ish?) I'll be keeping it available for the time-being, but I have no plans to update it for the current version of Tidy Plates.

Release 3: Cast Icon should show properly, now.

Re: I love this theme!

Migrating Grey's panel to other themes is something that I want to do... just need to find a few more hours in the day. ;-)

I just wish it had all the options of the grey theme!

That's a good idea; I'll put it on the list.

lol - Hey, I make no guarantees!

The class icons are activated when 1) a player is able to attack you, and 2) you've enabled "class-colored nameplates" under the Interface panel.

This means that the icon will show up during duels, battlegrounds, world pvp, and NPC mind control.

Glad you like it! :-)

If you open up "Theme.lua" (in the TidyPlatesKnurl folder), and take a peek at the code, you'll find a section that looks like this:

Code:
function config.SetSpecialText(unit)
	return unit.health.." / "..unit.healthmax
end
The function simply returns a string of text. The variable 'unit' is a table, which is loaded with information about that particular unit. So, 'unit.health' becomes that specific unit's health. The '..' appends pieces of text, so we can add the slash '/' between the two numbers.

To return the percentage, we include a little bit of math in our statement:

Code:
function config.SetSpecialText(unit)
	local healthPercent = ceil( ( unit.health / unit.healthmax ) * 100 )
	return healthPercent.."%"
end
The function 'ceil()' rounds the number up to the next whole number.

Hope that helps!

Re: Spell Icon

Ah ha! I'd made some changes to how things were layered (in Tidy Plates), and I thought I'd kept everything backwards compatible. Ooops. I'll post up a fix to Knurl in a few minutes.

Hi, this is pretty much the perfect nameplate skin, great work. The only problem is that the spell icon isn't showing up next to the casting bar - just a black box on the right hand side. I don't know anything at all about modding but I looked at the lua file of this skin and the 'simple' skin (the spell icon works in that, and other, skins btw) and did some trial and error editing with sizes etc.

The only thing that made a difference was when I took out the anchor = "CENTER" line and I could see some of the icon poking out from under the black box. It seems that black box is positioned to cover the spell icon. I think it may have something to do with Empty.tga in Tidyplates style folder but I can't get my head around it. Is there any way I can correct this?

Thanks!

Pop open the skin.lua file for the Wide theme..

Somewhere in that file, paste the following:

Code:
function NAMEPLATE_SPECIALTEXT_DELEGATE(unit)
	return unit.health.." / "..unit.healthmax
end
Then, paste the following lines amongst the other categories:

Code:
config.specialText = {
	typeface =					path.."\\Calibri.ttf",
	size = 9,
	width = 62,
	height = 9,
	x = 0,
	y = 1,
	align = "BOTTOM",
	anchor = "LEFT",
	vertical = "TOP",
	shadow = true,
}
And, last, scroll down to "config.options = {" and place this line with the rest of the items:

Code:
showSpecialText = true,
That'll put it up on the nameplate, but you'll have to tweak its size and location. ;-)

The client fades the non-targets to 50%ish, keeping the current target's nameplate at 100% opacity. But you mean something more, right? Like an arrow or something?

But what I miss is an indicator for the current target. Besides that it is great! Good job!
