Tidy Plates Beta  Updated less than 3 days ago!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 6.16.Beta4
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.
Think of this: Changes mean that this addon is being actively developed
and maintained, rather than withering.

--------------------------------------
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:
--------------------------------------
* 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


---------------------------

* Removed Threat Wheel widget from Hub
* Tweaked some names/descriptions
* Separated Hub functions.lua into discrete category files

6.14.Beta1
---------------------------
WoD Changes:
* Fixed Target selection issue; UnitExists() now returns true/false, rather than 1/0
* Fixed Mouseover issue; 6.0 no longer uses the Highlight region to indicate mouseover; Using Name text color change.
* Fixed Elite/Dragon Texture being reshown; Using :SetAlpha(0) rather than nilling the texture.
* Note: The GUID changes made by Blizzard for 6.0 should NOT affect Tidy Plates, since it only uses the GUID as ID, not for deconstruction/forensics.

Framework:
* Hub: Quick Frame Templates now return the created frame twice (ie. assign two references with a single call)

Hub: Health Bar View:
* Removed several of the Status Text choices; These will reappear in a more advanced "Custom Text" category (Working on it...)

Hub:

Aura Widget:
* Widgets: Aura: Combat Log Event Handler now skips units which are group members, relying on the general Unit event handler for their updates.

* 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.

6.13.Beta3
---------------------------
* Themes: More fixes for text issues.
* Widgets: Fixed the Class Icon widget. Finally. Added class-colored borders to each icon.
* Hub: Added a new checkbox to "Scale"; "Auto-Scale Mini Mobs", which will downscale those tiny guys, ironically making it easier to target.
* Hub: Added a new checkbox to "Unit Filter", "Override Target Scale", which will maintain the filtered scale of Targeted Mobs.
* Core: Added: unit.isMini = boolean. This will eventually replace "unit.platetype" and "unit.isTrivial". Not anytime soon, though.
* Quatre & Neon: Increased the text size by 1pt to reduce specific scaling concerns.


6.13.Beta2
---------------------------
* Removed the "Unit Spotlight" system, for the moment. Don't worry- It will come back to the beta release! I just need to get a solid release done to fix some issues. Thanks for your patience :-)
* Replaced "Accidental Presidency" with "Roboto Condensed" for Quatre.
* Hub: "Use Blizzard font" should work properly again.

6.13.Beta1
---------------------------
- Hub: Major Reorganization and Additions, including (but not limited to):
Reorganization of Health Bar & Headline Categories
Reorganization of Buff & Debuff Category
Seperate Friendly & Enemy color modes (* New *)
Reorganization & Pruning of Bar Color Modes
Removal of Warning Glow mode chooser; "By Threat" (Glow) checkbox is now under the "Threat" category.
Unit Spotlight; New category, allows you to highlight specific mobs by adding the Unit Name to the list. (* New *)
Spell Casting Option: Enable Friendly Castbars. (* New *)
New Font: Replaced "Accidental Presidency" with "Roboto Condensed" in Neon; Looks similar, but contains more complete character sets for other languages.
(In the future, I will be replacing the fonts for the rest of the themes.)

6.12.6
---------------------------
- Widgets: Combo Point: Anticipation "fix"
- Hub: Cached class colors in instances

6.12.5
---------------------------
- Widgets: Unit Cache: Stores non-local units with a " (*)" suffix.
- Hub: Class colors on cached units shoud work properly

6.12.4
---------------------------
- Core: New unit data: unit.rawName, strips the (*) from nameplate names.
- Core: The carrier frame is now globally labeled with a unique frame name.
- Hub: Healer Tracking: Now uses unit.rawName rather than unit.name
- Widgets: Aura Tracker: Now uses unit.rawName to associate on-screen PvP names
- Widgets: Unit Cache: Will now properly filter non-realm units (ex. coalesced or battlegroup)

6.12.2/3
---------------------------
- Revert fix for viewport mod interaction. Needs a bit more external testing, apparently.

6.12.1
---------------------------
- TOC Bump
- Core: OnShowCastbar will now check for unit health before proceeding, hopefully avoiding errors when the Castbar's OnShow handler is called early.
- * Fix for Viewport Mods (specifically, Sunn), particularly, when the actual vertical viewport is decreased.

6.12.0
---------------------------
- Core: Compatibility Mode: Restored alpha-override behavior
- Hub: Warning Glow: Fixed InCombatLockdown() reference

6.12.Beta4
---------------------------
- I may have fixed some bugs. Or maybe that was a dream. Hard to recall whilst under Benadryl's spell.
- Ok, I definitely changed some things, and I'm not getting errors in game. That's a good sign.
- Made some changes to (hopefully) fix 1) debuff tracking oddities, and 2) lua error using health text.

6.12.Beta3
---------------------------
- Added a workaround/fix to the broken Blizzard function, InterfaceOptionsFrame_OpenToCategory. Slash command shortcuts for /hub and /tidyplates will now work properly.
- Added a Compatibility Mode checkbox to the interface panel. This will fall back to older anchoring methods.
- Core: The OnShow handler will skip all data gather on that first cycle; The Alpha data is (still) unreliable, causing GUID association issues.

6.12.Beta2
---------------------------
- Updated 6.12 with the changes made to the castbar during 6.11. (Since 6.12 inherits the 6.10 core, it didn't see the progression)
- Aura Widget: Fixed issue where aura is briefly shown, then hidden. Should be fixed.
- Added a copy of the reference to healthbar and castbar. for Threat Plates Compatibility.

6.12.Beta1
---------------------------
- Reintegration of 6.10 Core, which includes reorganization and rebuilding of the main engine.


6.10 Beta 5
---------------------------
- Combo Points: "Anticipation" fix for non-english regions? someone needs to test this, cuz I'm in an english region.
- Core: Back to hooking the base plate.
- Healertrack: Strsplit fix (thought I fixed that several months ago.. hmmm...)

Beta 4
- no clue. 3/4 asleep while working on this.

Beta 3
- probably a bug fix.

6.10 Beta 2
---------------------------
- Update to 5.3 TOC
- Core: Parenting Tidy Plates Frame to UIParent & Reanchor back to base nameplate. Performance boost.
- Core: Started Refactoring Core (This will happen over the course of WoW 5.3)
- Core: Removed the 'Spell Cast Watcher' component; 5.3 natively adds this function.

Hitbox shift; Changing anchors of a nameplate = bad bad bad bad bad

Vertical Bars; If you want to make a theme with vertical bars, go for it. I prefer the horizontal arrangement, myself. Text runs much better in that direction. A non-text theme (like Lucky Charms) would probably be a better fit with vertical bars.

Right now it seems, for all nameplates, there are two options:
+ unstacked bars that shift and move (seemingly at random) or
+ stacked bars which makes targeting each mob difficult.

Would unstacked, vertical bars help alleviate the shifting?
Would stacked vertical bars be easier to target?

It's quite possible to do it for the current target. You'd have to write your own widget. I suggest taking a look at the Selection Box Widget in the TidyPlates_Grey\Tank\FunctionsTank.lua file. You'd have to make some graphics, add a statusbar, etc. Not especially complicated, but it takes time. (which is why it's not already in Tidy Plates)

For non-targets, you could display a snapshot of the current mana of a "mouseover" unit, but that'd be a bit more complicated.

I'd elaborate, but I'm pretty toasted from work. Brain isn't cooperating.

Re: Health Percent

According to the "Chicago Manual of Style", you're right. ;-)

Displays %75, when it should read 75%.

I'm not a fan of the new buff shrinks. I'll have to cast my vote for a style with fewer bigger boxes with more visible numbers. I like the idea of having the nameplates track only key short-duration debuffs (usually <1 min) and leave the rest to the target unitframe of whatever UI I'm using.

Setting the bar to "VERTICAL" just changes the statusbar, not the hitbox. However, the hitbox CAN be altered, with some Blizz limitations; We can only change the size/shape of the hitbox out-of-combat.

This isn't as dire as it appears. The nameplate objects are re-cycled, meaning; They are created once, and shown/hidden as necessary. If Tidy Plates is able to change a nameplate's hitbox while out-of-combat (ex. displaying a raid member's nameplate while standing around), that plate will remain altered during combat.

The nameplate will not remain associated with a unit forever; A single nameplate might be recycled for 100's of different units during a raid, from encounter-to-encounter.

Hope that helps!

Does it rotate the "click-able" area to target the mob ... or is that still locked by Blizz?

Re: Vertical setup

Which theme ya using? Here's an excerpt from Lucky Charms (heart.lua), which worked for me:

Code:
config.healthbar = {
	texture 				= path.."\\heart\\Heart_Statbar",
	height =36,
	width = 35,
	x = 0,
	y = 0,
	orientation = "VERTICAL",
	anchor = "CENTER",
}
Kinda looked like you had it correct, but we'll figure it out, whatever it is.

under (config.healthbar = {) in the config.lua i tried (orientation = "VERTICAL",) but it didnt work

You can fix that by adjusting the width of your name object. WoW automatically truncates and adds ellipses (...) to a string that is too long to be displayed in a frame.

Which theme are you altering? Or, is it a custom theme?

One thing to note: If you are in combat when the plates appear, the hitbox may not change size (It's a restriction by the Blizzard client)

oh sry my fault, yes i use this line but the hitbox doesnt resize.

only the nameplates i logged in have the correct settings if i run arround the
new nameplates doesnt have the width = 50, height = 35 hitbox settings,
think this is an update problem?

bad english i know
