SnowfallCursor  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.0
by: Dayn [More]
This is an addon that improves the visibility of the mouse cursor, making it easier to find in a chaotic environment with lots of spell effects and whatnot. The addon places a star at the cursor, with size proportional to the cursor speed.

There is no configuration whatsoever. It's just the way I like it, already! This addon is tiny, though, so if you're handy with editing addons, you could very easily modify size, texture, and so forth.

Thanks a ton for making this, I've been looking for this type of addon for a while. If I may make a suggestion, though, I'd love to see the option to auto enable upon entering combat, or a way to manually enable and disable it.

/edit - Also, what would be the value to change to adjust the max size?
Would it be the 6 in this line?
Code:
local size = speed / 6 - 16;

I'm glad folks like the addon.

I had thought about enabling/disabling functionality based upon entering/leaving combat. I may make a config-file-based option to do that.

Yes, if you want to adjust the size, you could change the divisor in the size assignment (currently 6). The constant subtracted (currently 16) represents the minimum cursor speed before the graphic will be shown.

Here's a tweak I made to make in enable on combat.
Code:
local frame = CreateFrame("Frame", nil, UIParent);
frame:SetFrameStrata("TOOLTIP");

local texture = frame:CreateTexture();
texture:SetTexture([[Interface\Cooldown\star4]]);
texture:SetBlendMode("ADD");
texture:SetAlpha(0.5);

local x = 0;
local y = 0;
local speed = 0;
local function OnUpdate(_, elapsed)
  local dX = x;
  local dY = y;
  x, y = GetCursorPosition();
  dX = x - dX;
  dY = y - dY;
  local weight = 2048 ^ -elapsed;
  speed = math.min(weight * speed + (1 - weight) * math.sqrt(dX * dX + dY * dY) / elapsed, 1024);
  local size = speed / 6 - 16;
  if (UnitAffectingCombat("player")) then
    if (size > 0) then
      local scale = UIParent:GetEffectiveScale();
      texture:SetHeight(size);
      texture:SetWidth(size);
      texture:SetPoint("CENTER", UIParent, "BOTTOMLEFT", (x + 0.5 * dX) / scale, (y + 0.5 * dY) / scale);
      texture:Show();
    end
  else
  texture:Hide();
  end
end
frame:SetScript("OnUpdate", OnUpdate);

I absolutely love this addon for raiding. A toggle from inside the game would be great. Keep up the good work on it.
