Tidy Plates: Threat Plates



About:
Tidy Plates: Threat Plates (TPTP for short) is a theme for use with Tidy Plates with patch 5.0.4 or later WoW client. 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.
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.

It is doable however the mouseover area would not be accurate.

The only problem I'm currently facing, is getting the nameplates to "know" what the unit's targets are with the unit.guid. This can actually cause some incorrect information to be displayed on some non-moused'ed over nameplates.

That looks like it should do the trick.

Further testing proves interrupting does not influence this bug.
You'll have to report this to the Tidy Plates author. The castbar is handled by Tidy Plates.

Re: Raid Multi-tank aware nameplates

that wouldn't be hard to do if you used libgrouptalents, or threw together a quick scanner of your own

local function IsDeathKnightTank()
-- idea taken from addon 'ElitistJerks'
local tankTalents = (getTalentpointsSpent(16271) >= 5 and 1 or 0) + -- Anticipation
(getTalentpointsSpent(49042) >= 5 and 1 or 0) + -- Toughness
(getTalentpointsSpent(55225) >= 5 and 1 or 0) -- Blade Barrier
return tankTalents >= 2
end

local function IsDruidTank()
-- idea taken from addon 'ElitistJerks'
local tankTalents = (getTalentpointsSpent(57881) >= 2 and 1 or 0) + -- Natural Reaction
(getTalentpointsSpent(16929) >= 3 and 1 or 0) + -- Thick Hide
(getTalentpointsSpent(61336) >= 1 and 1 or 0) + -- Survival Instincts
(getTalentpointsSpent(57877) >= 3 and 1 or 0) -- Protector of the Pack
return tankTalents >= 3
end

function bossModPrototype:IsTank()
return (select(2, UnitClass("player")) == "WARRIOR" and select(3, GetTalentTabInfo(3)) >= 51)
or (select(2, UnitClass("player")) == "DEATHKNIGHT" and IsDeathKnightTank())
or (select(2, UnitClass("player")) == "PALADIN" and select(3, GetTalentTabInfo(2)) >= 51)
or (select(2, UnitClass("player")) == "DRUID" and select(3, GetTalentTabInfo(2)) >= 51 and IsDruidTank())
end

is what we use in DBM to determine if you are a tank or not for selecting default settings on first run and for offtank ooze kiter detection on rotface...druids and Dks talent scans though are still subject to some inaccuracy with unusual specs. or will flag a dps as a tank if their spec is unusual too with tank talents. but this aproach would still be more automated, vs having users set tanks before the feature works. or you could use both, set tanks > guessed tank by talent scanning.

Raid Multi-tank aware nameplates

I'm sorry if this has been asked before, I've only gone back a couple of pages in the thread (15+ pages.. impressive).

Is there a way of making threat plates multi-tank aware? What I mean by this if a I am a tank in a raid and all tanks are marked as a tank in the blizzard UI. I'd like the name plates to show me the mobs that I have in one color, and then show me the mobs which are tanked by another tank in a different color than a loose mob. This way I can know if a mob is actually squishing a dps or is being correctly tanked by another one of my fellow tanks.

Currently I have to revert back to my pre-threatplates tanking skills of tabbing through and looking at target of targets and of course looking for lunging mobs. All things nicely colored threatplates helped with.

I did a little looking around in the API on wowwiki and found a couple of function calls which allowed you to query the roll of a raid member. They looked promising. I can dig them up if that would be useful.

Does the debuff widget only work with enemy units? Would be nice to see debuffs on friendly units, like Plague Sickness/Unbound Plague for Putricide.

This is a good point. a good example of blizzards retardation

Removed nameplates from critters, all critters, even ones you are supposed to dps like ones before PP. Yet having name plates on something retarded like a pit of snakes.

But adding this to special name plates with a default of OFF would be pretty sweet

Under threat options, look at the marked units options.

HP coloured by threat level

With the addition of this new feature I am wondering if there is some way to get rid of the border texture around the frames to streamline them a bit more. I thought it fell under Highlighting, but that option doesn't seem to work.

I much prefer the slimmed down integration of threat in to health bars to reduce the clutter size on my screen, I think it looks a like sleeker.

Anyway to get rid of the outlines? THanks!
