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.

Castbar Problems

I seem to be having a problem making the castbar appear at all. I have tried deleting the saved variables, freshly installing the addon, turning the option on and off, reloading the UI, and I am at a loss. I have downloaded the most recent editions of both addons to no avail. To clarify, I have deleted the files marked Tidy Plates and Threat Plates specific files within the WTF\Account\[Accountname]\SavedVariables folder. Oddly enough, there are no files named Threat Plates within the WTF\Account\[Accountname]\[Server]\[Character]\SavedVariables folder. Is this normal?

I also seem to have problems getting the widgets to work, though the castbar problem is my biggest focus. Am I forgetting something vital? Thank you for any help.

In order to know this, you'd have to inspect the person.

Since a few patches ago they limited the amount of inspects you can do in a short period of time. Thus, the ability to do this would be rather inaccurate or would not be able to be done.

There are a few places needing changes.

One being the options of course like you found.

Another would be altering the UniqueIconWidget.lua to have the proper name reference.

Since you're not changing the "U##" you don't have to add the saved variables for it in the TidyThreatPlates.lua.

If you need some more detailed instructions feel free to attack me again.

I'll be adding a way to add your own custom settings soon.

Deth... you can edit the opacity function by opening up "TidyPlates_ThreatPlates\Functions\alpha.lua"

Just under the first line, "local function SetAlpha(unit)", paste something like this:

if unit.name == "Lava Parasite" then return 0 end

That'd be a quick and dirty method.

Alternatively, look at this post:

http://groups.google.com/group/tidy-...a1400c45f85b9f

You could set up a mini-addon to alter the function, which would persist even if you update Threat Plates.

Like so:


Code:
	local ThemeName = "Threat Plates"
	local Theme = TidyPlatesThemeList[ThemeName]

	local OriginalAlphaFunction
	OriginalAlphaFunction= Theme.SetAlpha 
	
	local function NewAlphaFunction(...)
		local unit = ...
		if unit.name == "Lava Parasite" then return 0
		else return OriginalAlphaFunction(...) end
	end
	
	Theme.SetAlpha= NewAlphaFunction
I think. I didn't test it.

My edits only changed the menu select options... had no effect on the display of nameplates in actual combat.

Can you throw me a bone and clue me in on where else I would need to make an edit as a short term fix? This is the only mob (from Magmaw) where the displaying of the nameplates is an issue so far in Cataclysm so a short term fix is fine.

I am perfectly fine with having to manually edit the LUA to address the issue until you can get a more elegant method incorporated into Threat Plates.

Found the following line in TidyPlates Threat.lua:

Just changed the first argument to false (allow mob nameplate), not sure if I need to change any of the other True/False arguments for this to work.

Options are as follows:


Can't test right now because we have already downed the boss for the week. Need to wait till Tuesday to test.

Options are as follows:

and replace with:
Lava Parasite
Hope this helps. You can do this for any of the existing options, Drudge Ghouls are not the "only" mob you can replace.

I cant get any debuffs to display with the new versions of TP and TPTP newest beta versions. Downgrading works fine though.

Would be pretty awesome with an interface option to add mob names to a black list that won't show their nameplates.
