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.

There is a very limited level of specific layering I can achieve with nameplates since they're not a secure frame.

I'm going to be adding functionality for this soon. I've been unable to really create a good way of doing this with the current setup of threat plates.

It could be from another addon. Try doing the same with nothing else on other than Tidy Plates and Threat Plates.

I'd look into these two addons to see if you're getting Lua errors from something:

You'd have to edit the texture or make your own and add it to the list in the

Widgets > TargetArtWidget.lua

I've been really wanting to redo the nameplates entirely and up the current release to something more stable with localization etc, I just haven't had the time.

All kinds of changes and optimizations have been in my mind for a while now I just need to sit down for a week and put it all together.

Is there any way to get the default target highlight box to be about twice as thick as it is currently? When i am tanking I like to easily see what my current target is.

nice that the icon option now has options. but it's still an all or nothing setting right now. as a tank, this option is completely useless to me on all fights except lich king. since to me bar coloring by threat is way more important than random colors from raid icons that don't tell me anything about mob threat. so the only boss as a tank i use this option on is for valks. is it possible to add a conditional rule to only allow color by raid icon for valks? or some other similar option.

Clearly all those mobs are bosses... dur...

There's a strange conditional error when the nameplates haven't gotten the level information, it just slaps a dangerskull on instead(in Tidy Plates).

It could just be an order of operation error. Showing or hiding before or after plate info has been gathered for example.

i've also been having issues with disapearing name plates, i'm gonna go back to the non beta of tidy plates since i suspect that to be the cause for now. as 3.1c was not giving me issues until i installed the latest tidy plates beta, now i get incorrect reports of boss mobs, and osmetimes invisible name plates.

unless blizzard stealth buffed the mobs in tanaris i think this is a bug

this has been happening a lot recently although considering it only just started it's likely a new bug in tidy plates and not threat plates, so i'll post this in both just in case.
