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.

Edit: nvm I read it wrong .

Debuff

Is there a way to make the debuffs appear over all the nameplates without targeting/mouseovering them? I play a druid tank, and I swear that this used to show the dubuffs for all mobs, it helped a lot with my tab/lacerate sequence. Thank you for an excellent addon.

Nope sorry =/

In order for the addon to know what debuffs there are on something you have to target / mouseover the nameplate to gain the UnitGUID information.

Incorporated Stance/Shapeshift/Aura/Presence Monitoring (Warr/Druid/Paladin/DK only options) *If turned on this ignores spec settings and only looks for stances/shapeshifts/etc.*
Outstanding. Thanks for making this addon better and better.

Re: Debuff

With the debuff widget, mousing over a nameplate, or selecting it as a target (via click or tab works) will update the buff timers on that plate via the UnitAura() API function. So, if you tab to a mob and apply lacerate, it should appear on that plate until it expires. One catch; if the plate goes offscreen, Tidy Plates loses the tracking ID. So you'll have to target the mob or mouseover the plate to reaquire the data.

There seems to be no previous instance of "IsRaidTank" perhaps it was recently removed from blizzard API.

I'll see if I can rewrite the Widget and pass it over to danltiger.

Looking at it again, danltiger left a large portion of the widget code from the previous version out. I'm assuming he's planning to rewrite it using the 'unit.target' value.


* Edit * or I could read his latest beta changelog

I play with my camera distance at maximum, with the /console cameradistancemaxfactor 4 command, and its causing me some issues with the nameplates. At that camera distance, the nameplates cover up practically all of the npc's/player's model. This is extremely annoying when I'm trying to right click to start auto attack and its hard to find a bit of the model sticking out, especially since in most situations the nameplate positions and/or camera angle is moving around.

First of all, I'm not missing some setting to help me with this am I.
If not, would it be possible to add a feature that allows you to start auto attack by right clicking the nameplate itself, or make a setting that offsets the nameplate itself from the npc model. Both would be cool, but either one would fix my issue.

My main spec is DPS and my off spec is Tank. It used to be the reverse and when I was tanking the nameplates would be smaller on scale for high threat values and then get larger for lower threat values.

Under the dual spec settings I have them set as P: DPS, S: Tank.

When I look under the DPS Threat Levels tab, it has it the way I want it for DPS, small scale level for low threat and large scale for high threat. Under the Tank Threat Levels tab it has the reverse with large scale for low threat and small scale for high threat. This is how I want it but it doesn't seem to be working. When tanking in a dungeon, the nameplates take the role of DPS.

I went to the Threat Options tab and saw that it asks me to select the roll that I am currently fulfilling and it has it set as DPS (obviously this here is the problem). I have Warrior Stances enabled but it never switches to the Tanking role so that I can fix this issue.

How can I get it to recognize what role (Tank or DPS) I am filling? Or do I have to change the roll each time manually?

Also I have the Tidy Plates themes set to P: Threat Plates, S: Threat Plates

Note:
P: = Primary
S: = Secondary

I have no control on what clicking does to the nameplates. They inherit the default nameplate actions. Zooming out with your camera will eventually prevent any way of seeing the mobs due to the framesize. Offsetting the nameplates just makes it harder to click them since the mouseover click area does not translate.

The stance monitoring will cause the default threat system by spec to be ignored.

The roles are set when you enter combat depending on your stance, or when you change your stances.

So if I disable Stance Monitoring, and under the Threat Tab select DPS (but I am in tank spec) and then enter combat, it should change the roll to Tank?
