Tidy Plates Beta  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.16.Beta9
by: danltiger [More]

This is a major update to Tidy Plates, and many things have changed.

Having Trouble?

* Quick Fix - Quick Setup:
1. Use '/tp' to reselect your Theme
2. Use '/hub' to check your settings...
...Some settings have been pruned!

Here are some of the bigger changes:

* Hub Revamp / Phase 1
1. Removed theme copies; ie. "Damage" and "Tank"
2. Theme copies have become 'Profiles'
3. Access profiles via: '/tp'
4. You can still use '/hub' to jump to the
appropriate panel
5. Again, some settings have been pruned!

* NEON is the only theme that has been updated in Beta1
* QUATRE will be available in Beta2
* GREY will be available in Beta3

* Numerous Bug Fixes & Improvements
* Numerous Bug "Additions", possibly

I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience these changes may cause.

I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience these changes may cause...

maintained, rather than withering, as many addons do...

--------------------------------------
6.16.Beta8
--------------------------------------
* Hub: Threat: Highlight Mobs Tanked by Other Tanks: It was a mess. Rewrote and tested with hunter pet, and it's working well in that condition.
- To do: Reimplement Combat Log melee swing detection, and test in 5-man and Raids

--------------------------------------
6.16.Beta7
--------------------------------------
* I haven't been keeping track of changes. Warlords- yay!

Things still needing testing...
* Healer Tracking
* Tank Target-Of-Mob Tracking

--------------------------------------
6.16.Beta6
--------------------------------------
* Some fixes, some additions..

Things still needing testing...
* Healer Tracking
* Tank Target-Of-Mob Tracking


--------------------------------------
6.16.Beta5
--------------------------------------
* Lots of things that I didn't write down because I'm busy playing Warlords of Freakin' Draenor woot!
* Fixed some bugs
* Added some new bugs, probably
* Lots of changes to the Hub. Feedback is good. Be polite, please!

* Migrated to new Dropdown Menu and Hub Function system; Your settings will be a bit borked until you go to /hub

--------------------------------------
6.16.Beta4:
--------------------------------------
* Themes: Migrated Quatre, Grey, and Graphite to the new system
* Hub/Themes: New function definition process, makes it easier to add themes
* Numerous bug fixes.. Can't remember. Been leveling my druid. Sleep; Need more of.

--------------------------------------
6.16.Beta3:
--------------------------------------
* Hub/Aura Widget: Fixed an issue which would prevent your auras from showing up (Previous configuration conflict)

--------------------------------------
6.16.Beta3:
--------------------------------------
* Widget/Combo Points: Fixed?

--------------------------------------
6.16.Beta2:
--------------------------------------
* Widgets/UnitCache: Fix for mouseover bug
* Class Coloring: Fixed IsInInstance() issue.. maybe?
* Hub: Removed "Default" choice from the Friendly and Enemy Coloring Modes (Yeah, this will make current settings funk-up... but it cleans out that redundant choice)

--------------------------------------
6.16.Beta1: Full-ish List of Changes:
--------------------------------------

Core:
* Core/Panel: !! The Bundled themes no longer create a "Damage" and "Tank" copy !!
* Core/Panel: Introduced a new menu set, called Profiles, which will load the appropriate "Damage", "Tank", or "Healer" Hub profile.
* Core/Panel: When the selected theme is invalid, it'll fall-back to the first available theme.
* Core/Panel: Added a Slash Command alias, "/tp" in addition to "/tidyplates"

Bundled Themes:
* Themes: Neon & Quatre now have CastProtected art. About time!
* Neon: New Elite Icon, which looks more like I'd originally intended. (Replaces the old Star)
* Removed "Blizzard Theme"... Sorry guys... There are core things that I want to get done, and fixing/maintaining
that component is not a priority. It will probably return, but don't hold your breath.

Widgets:
* Widgets/UnitCache: Replaced " (*)" with FOREIGN_SERVER_LABEL, which will fix unit-caching on certain server types.
* Widgets/UnitCache: Now using a Scanning Tooltip, which should prevent conflicts with TipTac and other Tooltip mods
* Widgets/Aura: Combat Log Event Handler now skips units which are group members, relying on the general
Unit event handler for their updates.

Hub/General:
* Hub: Colorized 'Friendly' and 'Enemy' description titles, to improve readability.
* Separated Hub functions.lua into discrete category files
* Tweaked some names/descriptions
* Removed Threat Wheel widget from Hub
* Hub: Added a button to the Advanced category; "Clear Cache", which purges the stored Class/Description/Guild data
* Hub/Advanced: "Health Bar Width" (%) Allows you to tweak the relative width of the theme's Health Bar (Experimental)

Hub/Colors:
* Hub/Reaction: New Color, "Tapped Unit"
* Hub/Color Function: Tapped Color will be applied, taking priority over Threat/Etc. functions

Hub/Scale:
* Hub: Scale: Added, Bring Target units to Spotlight Scale, Bring Mouseovers to Spotlight Scale

Hub/Health Bar View:
* Removed several of the Status Text choices; These will reappear in a more advanced "Custom Text" category (Working on it...)
* NOTE: The CUSTOM/ADVANCED Status Text function hasn't been written, yet; Thus, it doesn't do anything at the moment...

Hub/Opacity:
* Hub: Opacity: Enemy & Friendly units now have their own independent Spotlight Modes
* Hub: Opacity: Spotlight Modes; Removal of some redundant and underused modes.
* Hub: Opacity: New Checkbox, "Spotlight Raid Marked"
* Hub: Opacity: Modified Checkbox, "Bring Mouseovers to Target Opacity" to "Spotlight Mouseover"
* Hub: Opacity: Modified Checkbox, "Bring Casting Units to Target Opacity" to "Spotlight Casting Units"

Hub/Aura Widget:
* Hub: Buffs & Debuffs: Replaced "Aura Widget Mode" Dropdown with Checkboxes: "Include My Buffs", and "Include My Debuffs".
* Hub: Buffs & Debuffs: The widget will now use a Smart Mode, where it first evaluates the checkboxes, then evaluates the Aura List.
* Hub: Buffs & Debuffs: Added the "Not" prefix to the aura list; This new mode allows you to blacklist auras from "Show My Debuffs" etc.

Framework:
* Hub: Quick Frame Templates now return the created frame twice (ie. assign two references with a single call, which helps with the Quick Frame setup)
* Fixed some Odd Mouseover Behavior
* Rearranged and removed some old Hub stuff. Cleaning out functions, removing ancient code, removed items of questionable utility

As usual, Kat explains it just as good (if not better) than I could ;-) I should put him on the payroll..

The only thing that Tidy Plates polls for is new nameplates. Every other update is driven by some event.

It's funny, because there's highly noticeable server lag when capturing certain events, especially UNIT_AURA and UNIT_THREAT_SITUATION_UPDATE.

It's possible to force Tidy Plates to poll full updates by creating a frame with an onupdate handler, which called the global TidyPlates:Update() function. Yickes!

Originally posted by Tanque
I've been stress testing the aura module by sweeping the mouse over crowds of mobs to spam dots with a mouseover macro. I noticed that sometimes the dot won't appear when moving the mouse away quickly right after dotting the mob. But they'll appear instantly if I sweep over it a second time. It's as if there's a lag between the time I place the dot and the time Tidy Plates checks for debuffs on the mouseover target. But since I'm constantly moving the mouse, it doesn't register that I've placed the dot because the mouse has already moved on to the next target.

This is the macro I use:
Code:
#showtooltip
/cast [target=mouseover,harm,nodead,exists] Living bomb; Living Bomb

In what context? Is that a direct code snippet? If so...

Code:
theme.hitbox = { 	width = 50, height = 35,}
is what you need. Where 'theme' is the theme table.

In any case the debuff will appear relatively quickly if I keep the mouse over the target. I assume the game is firing mouseover checks by itself at some frequency. Dunno exactly how it works.
There are actually quite a lot of things that can "update" a nameplate:

When you enter a zone, enter or leave combat, change target, mouse over something, something receives a raid target, or a unit gains a level. Depending on the widget (ie combo point) they may have specific updates.

This is the macro I use:
Code:
#showtooltip
/cast [target=mouseover,harm,nodead,exists] Living bomb; Living Bomb
In order to reduce the amount of cycles the addon uses, nameplates / widgets update when you mouse over the nameplates.

If the widget could some how monitor combat logs they could update more accurately.

Combo points okay

I actually like the combo point widget okay. The contrast to the slim bars is quite nice, although the pie shaped points took me a while to get used to.

For a while, though, it seemed like the combo point widget wasn't updating correctly in comparison to the combo points on my unit frame. I'll have to pay closer attention to see if that's still the case or not.

All in all, nice job. Thanks for the addon!

A friend of mine says "sleep is for the weak". Of course, I always heard it as "sleep is for the week".

I have an idea for the name area which should look nice and might actually fit the theme if I can pull off some graphics mojo.

Go for it! Do you use Photoshop? PM me your email, and I'll send you the layered file.

I can't promise that I'll change the default theme, but I'd be happy to post an alt theme. Come to think of it... maybe I should start including more than just the Grey theme with the Tidy Plates package?

It'll make it to the tank theme, eventually. Making some sort of tracking config is definitely in the future.

Also, the debuff icons just looks a little off, the rest of the graphics are so shiney clean while the debuff icons just looks plain. I understand that it is a first release though. Also, I am missing stacks on i.e. poisons.
Needs more 'shineyness'? ;-) And, yes, you're right; I need to put stacks in there, somewhere.

Another graphical element I dont really like is the combotpoints. Can you do something like the threat bar but divided in 5 parts. Should look a little tighter and not take up so much space.

Hmm... perhaps you play a rogue, eh? ;-) The current widget is circular to contrast with the squarish plates, which I like. BUT I don't see a problem with offering another choice. Draw me a sketch, if you get a chance.

Haven't had the chanse to test out the icons yet, but seeing what person is target is really hard multi-tanking with overlapping plates, like close to impossible to see.

It's not as bad as it seems, especially if you rotate the camera upward so the plates fan out a little bit. Also, turning the overlap off is another option. (I do it for groups less than 4)

Some critique, but I still love the plates!

Critique is good! Glad you enjoy :-)

I really really like having the linear threat near the top; It's so much easier (to my eyes, at least) to distinguish when faced with a group of mobs. But, I can see your point, with the raid target icon. (I guess I just haven't noticed it, lately) From my perspective, I'd rather work around the threat widget, and fit the other icons in.

Reason I am asking.. when I am off-tanking it always covering raid target icon and when I was tanking this morning ( checking out the new goodies , hehe ) it was on top of new shield. You could say that shield and linear threat are not meant to be used together but there is still raid target issue :P.

Yeah, you're right; I wasn't intending for the Tanked Icon to be used with the threat widgets, since they already indicate a 'Tanked' mob (at least, the Tug-o widget does; the target name turns blue if they are a tank.

On the new debuff icon. I haven't had a lot of time to test but it seems very selective. For example, it will show Infected Wounds but not Faerie Fire (Feral) or Mangle or Demo Roar.

It displays short debuffs (ie. shorter than 30 seconds). At some point, the configuration will be more extensive. The reason for this; The widget only displays up to 4 debuffs. More than 4, and the screen starts looking absurdly overloaded.

Also I have question. Will debuff icons feature be limited to dps theme only?
For the moment, yes. Only because I've still got some work to do on how all the elements will fit together. It also seems more important for a DPS to see their debuffs; Though, I do recognize that it's nice to see things like Lacerate.

Thanks for great addon.
/cheers


You're welcome! More work to do... slowly but surely.
