Threat Plates - Version 8.7



Battle for Azeroth Beta:
You can find a working version of Threat Plates for BfA Beta here.

About:
Threat Plates (TPTP for short) is a addon for customizing your nameplates. It offers a high amount of customization and tweaks to how your nameplates react and look. It also offers some unique features that are not available with any other nameplate addon. I've spent a considerable amount of time improving this addon and any comments or concerns about this addon are appreciated. I'm always looking for ways to improve this addon.

Starting with version 8.6.0, Threat Plates now is a standalone addon that no longer requires TidyPlates. Please enable only one of these two nameplate addons, otherwise two overlapping nameplates will be shown for units.
Features:
  • SharedMedia support and many, many, options for name, health, level, and spell text. As well as all of the standard nameplate features such as castbar and icon, elite icons / textures, skull icons / textures, raid marks, and healthbar coloring/alpha/scale.
  • Ace3 profiling.
  • Low memory footprint.
  • Threat system management.
  • Automatic talent detection and role assigning for an easy out of the box setup.
  • Customizable widgets.
  • Customizable totem nameplates.
  • Customizable nameplates for extra customization for specifically named units.
Commands:
  • /tptp - Displays options.
  • /tptptoggle - Toggle Role from one to the other.
  • /tptpdps - Toggles DPS/Healing threat plates.
  • /tptptank - Toggles Tank threat plates.
  • /tptpol - Toggles nameplate overlapping.
  • /tptpverbose - Toggles addon feedback text.
Additional Information:
A considerable amount of information about options and its internal priorities are not gone into details. Most options that are enable or disable based will toggle off options that are no longer changeable once enabled or disabled. If you have any questions about options and what they do, feel free to leave a comment or PM me here for more information.

  • Extended the combo points widget to show also soul shards for warlocks [Issue #158, Comment #819].

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8.7.0
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  • Added options to adjust how Threat Plates are scaled (based on UI scale, ignoring UI scale or pixel-perfect), see General - Blizzard Settings.

  • Added a new texture for the striped absorb overlay and added an option to adjust its color.
  • Added options to show or hide nameplates automatically in combat or in instances, see General - Automation [Comment #602].

  • If a unit is targeted, situational settings for scale and transparency (mouseover, casting, marked) no longer have priority over the respective target settings [Comment #752].
  • Changed the castbar options so that the colors for interruptible and non-interruptible casts can be selected independently from each other [Comment #570].
  • Removed the restriction that the threat system configuration can only be changed outside of arenas and battlegrounds [E-Mail].

  • Fixed a Lua error with scaling and transparency on nameplates that had no unit assigned yet.
  • Fixed localization of default fonts for Korean (koKR), Simplified Chinese (zhCN), Traditional Chinese (zhTW), and Russian (ruRU). Default fonts are automatically adjusted so that text in the local alphabet is displayed properly [Issue #171]
  • Added localization strings for metric prefixes k (kilo) and m (million) (used for health points text).
  • Updated localization for deDE (German), zhTW (Traditional Chinese, thanks to gaspy10).

Due to the way the cast bar is made, the text on the cast doesn't update regularly to show the cast time. It's a limitation with Tidy Plates that I've currently not found a way to overcome.

I'll probably end up making a widget for it.

Which version ?

I'm a bit confused, I'm currently using this version : http://www.wowinterface.com/download...Catacylsm.html of threat plates.

What do I have to do now ? Update to this beta version ? or stick to the Cata version ?

Thx.

Edit : ok, answer on the other version's thread, sry.

I didn't have any of the widgets enabled, just went with the basics so I could see the threat around the nameplates. I'm sorry that I'm not very good at diagnosing these things since I have no idea what kind of info to give you to figure this out! I may just have to totally uninstall it and everything related to it and try again.

I downloaded the "Accidental Presidency" font (as it looks like almost all fonts are set to that) and put that in my fonts folder, but it isint helping. Im using Tidy Plates 5.14 Beta. Any ideas?
Have you tried using the non-beta version of Tidy Plates?

Still seem to be getting the error with the previous version.

Was planning on doing a full UI cleanup this weekend, so hopefully that will fix the issue. I'll let you know

I was wondering if you could add a scale by icon to expand icon options further, for example. Lich King Valks, you are assigned to stun/slow diamond, so an option to make diamond name plate have a custom scale so you can make it bigger than other icons to emphasize you want this name plate to be easier to grab whlie the other ones are smaller.

Maybe something changed that I'm not aware of in the latest Tidy Plates.

Try the version previous of Tidy Plates and let me know if the error persists.

I'm not sure what causes this, have you ever heard of an issue like this or have any idea what it could be?
Could be a number of things, if you could tell me what widgets you had enabled.

I'm not sure what that issue could be. Have you changed the fonts in any way?

Try deleting your saved variables.

Hi,

I keep getting this error when using the Threat Plates theme. The standard Grey and Neon themes work fine, but when I switch to Threat Plates I get this error and have to reloadui to even get the other two to work. I downloaded the "Accidental Presidency" font (as it looks like almost all fonts are set to that) and put that in my fonts folder, but it isint helping. Im using Tidy Plates 5.14 Beta. Any ideas?

Now the error is gone, but any time you make an update, I will have to remember this again. Even if I figure out which (other) addon is using the same name for a global variable as you then I would still have the problem, as if I change it in that one then when that is updated same thing will happen.

This is not the first time this sort of thing has happens. I know its not so common but still if coders (addon authors) made a habit of making all their variable almost impossible to replicate then this would never be a problem.
For example if you all used "biref name of addon"+"_"+"what ever you want to name the variable"
This for the above would look like "TPTP_currentSpec" this would drastically reduce the chance that two addons would have the same name for a variable.
Just my 2 cents.


P.S: I also figured out what the other addon was. Its also very popular and called TellMeWhen. I hope that one of you will swallow the bullet and rename that one variable.
Issue should be fixed.

I have had a terrible problem with this addon where when I use it, I drop down to like 2fps as soon as the plates pop up. This happened in pvp and I was afraid to use them for pve since I was tanking and that would be a nightmare.

I'm not sure what causes this, have you ever heard of an issue like this or have any idea what it could be?
