Tidy Plates Beta  Updated this week!  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

* 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...)

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.

Re: A few things

In the words of a famous commenter;

Wall-of-text hits Danltiger for 1,857,294 (Critical)..

Just reading through it quick, the only thing impossible is your last request; Tidy Plates doesn't manage the creation or position of the nameplates. Every nameplate addon 'merely' snags the Blizzard nameplates, and do our evil things to them. I would totally love it to be different.

The rest of your suggestions are quite possible, if daunting.. lol ;-)

So, a few things I have to say:

Playing on my rogue I noticed that the combo-points aren't instant and usually display wrong number of combo-points because of this. Would be awesome to have no delay at all and should be doable (?)

Regarding the timer icons, that's just awesome. I really like the right versions since they look kind of unique, I do realize the take some space thos and wonder how it will look tanking multiple mobs.

Anyways, the most important features for me would be knowing time left and knowing when one of my buffs arent on the mob. So, please make it so it tracks the debuffs I can put up even if it's not up. I.e. by highlighting it someway if not applied (red border, tint red/black or size it 150%).

Something else that struck me was checking for simular debuffs, I mean if I can't put up sunder because somone else has a armor debuff up I would love to know this, somehow. Maybe showing that debuff in the same place but highlighting it someway also so I know that it's not me.

Also, please include a scale for the icons, so we can make sure it looks good fitting in different classes debuffs. And I am already guessing that you will only be tracking self debuffs.

If you choose to make the right versions (looks awesome) can you please make a "tidy" addon for tracking self buffs aswell with simular grafix? Would be awesome having them fall down the way you've proposed and then when they are ran out the get 150% bigger or something, covering other icons so you really have to put it up ^^

Managing what things to track would be preferable with an advance option. Any type of list.

Also, is it possible to add some kind of feater where you highlight certain casts? I mean, sorting casts that isn't important and things that will kill me with one blow unless I use a cooldown. I got DBM but yeah, this would be awesome to see cleary in this addons aswell.

Finally a request. Is there a possability to control how far my current targets frame gets relative to the middle? Some bosses who are really tall disapears from the screen and I have to zoom out to oblivion to see them (something I don't always benefit from doing). Like have a "box" in the middle where my current target would never leave. Would be truly awesome.

Sorry for wall-o-text

And thanks again!

Re: TotemIconWidget

Ooo, neato! I'll have to try it out...

Tried it out!

The only suggestion I have: It could become an 'addon' rather than a patch. "TidyPlatesWidgets" is a global variable, which you can assign to, even outside of the main Tidy Plates code.

So, you could have your own LUA file, under "TidyPlates_ThreatWidget" (or something like that), and assign your function in the same manner...
Code:
TidyPlatesWidgets.CreateTotemIconWidget = CreateTotemIconWidget
Any themes that use it should modify their TOC file:
Code:
## Dependencies: TidyPlates, TidyPlates_ThreatWidget

Yes.. wait for the next release; I happen to like 'Liberation Sans', better than 'Arial Narrow', too. ;-)

Re: Trouble with Combo Points

Heya there,

Hmm... the symptoms seem to indicate something wrong with either the theme reference, or the stored variables (since the health text failed, too).

Clearing out the variables is a per-character ordeal, where you go under your "World of Warcraft\WTF\server\account\etc..\SavedVariables" folders, and delete "TidyPlates_Grey.lua".

It sounds like you've covered the obvious issues, but just for giggles; Check to make sure you've got the DPS theme selected for your current spec (under /tidyplates).

Hope that helps! Let me know if it doesn't, and I'll investigate further.

Daniel

I am having trouble with the combo points option on the Grey DPS theme. I can't get them to show up. I also had the text info displaying for a short time, now it's gone too.

I'll try running the addon clean to see if it's a matter of interference.

Again, thanks for the hard work. It really looks nice.

Yeah, they'd slide down, based on time-remaining. It's a neat idea, but I think it'd be hard to quickly gauge the time remaining with everything that happens on-screen.

I like the bottom left though the background on the bottom right's timeleft area looks better.

For practical purposes of stacking debuffs/buffs, yeah top or bottom left.
But they all look smoking cool. I kinda like the bottom right if there's no more than 3-4 debuffs. I'd use that if I was showing only my debuffs but top left if I was showing all debuffs on the target.
