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.

  • Adjusted defaults settings for castbar, spellicon, and class icons in headline view.
  • Fixed a bug with custom nameplates which were only loaded after the options dialog was opened.
  • Fixed bugs with saving the icon for a custom nameplate when a spell ID was used to define the icon.
  • Fixed a bug with the absorb glow sometimes being shown in headline view (without healthbar/absorbbar).
  • Fixed a Lua error in aura widget when switching to a profile with a larger maximum value for auras that can be displayed simultaneously.
  • Fixed a bug with the warning glow for threat being shown although disabled [Comment #658].

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8.7.0
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • Renamed the addon to Threat Plates (instead of Tidy Plates: Threat Plates). Addon directory is still TidyPlates_ThreatPlates though.
  • Added warning messages at login if other nameplate addons are enabled together with Threat Plates (Kui Nameplates, Plater, ElvUI Nameplates and TidyPlates).
  • Added an option to resize the healthbar, i.e., to change width and height independently from each other [PM, Issue #142, Comment #623].

  • Added an option to the castbar to show a shield for non-interruptible casts.
  • Added an option to change the placement of the castbar for target unit [Issue #134].
  • Added an option to change the color of an interrupted castbar. Also, changed the castbar animation for interrupted casts.
  • Added an option to configure the clickable area for nameplates.
  • Added options to adjust how Threat Plates are scaled (based on UI scale, ignoring UI scale or pixel-perfect), see General - Blizzard Settings.
  • Added options to the absorb display to always show the total absorb even if health is at maximum [Comment #140, Ticket #140].
  • 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].
  • Optimized and improved integration of TidyPlates code into Threat Plates.
  • Optimized how nameplates are handled after creation and deletion. Also, improved performance of handling mouseover events for nameplates and custom nameplates.

  • Fixed the migration of totem settings from versions before 8.7.0.
  • Fixed a bug with totem nameplates not being shown if healthbar should be hidden, but icon should be shown.

  • 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).

When I disable his module, which is fine cause he intended it to be so you have freedom to choose, and I enable Tiday Plate TP the second I see the name plate above a mob everything goes out of whack.
  • I can't access the LUI panel none of the panels are working.
  • I can't see say chat
  • I can't see my own buffs anymore
  • Basically a nightmare

My question is what could TP be doing to disrupt LUI in such a harsh fashion. The only error I get is:

[string "<unnamed>:OnShow"]:4: attempt to concatenate local 'name' (a nil value)
Count: 1

Call Stack:
[C]: ?
[string "*:OnShow"]:4: in function <[string "*:OnShow"]:1>

Here is a video of it in action:

Ill look into it. What version of Tidy Plates are you using?

Any directions would be a blast!

Cheers!

P.S.: I would offer German translations in return if that would be of interest
The names are in 2 different places in the Lua. The place where it matters most is in the "UniqueIconWidget.lua".

Here in this file is the list of names and their references to their icon name.

Changing their names here would be what you'd change for functionality.

Also in the options.lua The options are labeled in English, but otherwise do not prevent the changing of the nameplates due to the icon name referencing.

Set the "alpha" or transparency of the colors under "Namplate Options".

This should set them invisible.

Getting this error, not sure if its caused by Tidy Plates, or threat plates, so I'm just gonna post it in both locations.

I have Tidy Plates and Threat Plates installed but the nameplates aren't changing to the Threat Plates you see in the pictures. They are staying as if I just have Tidy Plates installed. How do I fix this?

EDIT: Had 3.0.4 installed and not the 4.0 Beta.

Would it be possible to add something that allows us to change the size (height mainly) of the cast bar? I know we can change the text but its the bar I need to see more.

It seems to be an update issue with the latest Tidy Plates Beta I think.

I get both default Blizzard nameplate and TinyPlate bungled together. When I approach the mob it's just TP showing up, then Blizz plate appears, right on top. As a result I get 2 mob names one under another, it looks like a mess. Is there any way to fix that?

UPD: Got it, evl_NamePlates is to blame.
