Headline (Nameplates)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: r13
by: senomar [More]
Very lightweight nameplates addon.

Nameplates for hostile players are classcolored.

Nameplates for hostile mob's are threatcolored in combat!
green: low or no threat
yellow: medium threat
red: aggro

/headline for basic settings:
- height
- width
- font size
- level display
- amplified target

Since this is a forked overhead: credits to p3lim.
r13
- removed 4.0.1a obsolete hook
r12
- option to amplify target
r10+11
- bugfixes
r9
- toggle level via /headline level
r8
- bars are threatcolored for hostile mobs in combat only. so, hostile mobs are red out of combat
r7
- moved the raid icons to a saner position
r6
- basic settings via /headline
r5
- fixes
r4
- fixed theatplates on mobs
r3
- wow 4.0.1 fixes

It'll record any previously seen nameplate names this session and automatically update them accordingly. If you want to change the default colour open up Headline.lua and at the top you'll see:
Lua Code:
  1. --[[    The default colour of names (before it's class can be determined)   Change the r(red), g(green), b(blue) component to change the colour. ]]-- local defaultColour = {   r = 1,  g = 0,  b = 1, }
Set the value of r, g, b (from 0-1) to choose that colour's contribution to the overall colour. e.g. I haven't tested it out on PvP flagged enemies so let me know how that goes if there are any issues.
I stopped working addon

Sorry about the delay, I've been busy these last few days. I'm happy to do it but I need you to clarify something; Do you want ALL names to be class coloured or only Player ones? (there is a significant difference in how it's coded)
all classes

As far as I am aware it is currently impossible, sadly. However, the Nameplates Fix Mop 'addon' might be of interest to you.

A little update:
1. Headline has been updated for 5.2
2. For those that were getting annoyed with replacing font/texture files after every update I've made HeadlineCustomOptions.
Both are available @https://code.google.com/p/headline-modified/downloads/list

Updated(now with less epileptic fits) Download

I've moved over to google code as sourceforge was just getting annoying.

Tagged mob color

Any fix for tagged mob color on nameplates? running past randoms fighting another mob causes nameplates to act like a discolight. Headline trying to color the nameplate for aggresive mob, at the same time as it gets the tagged mob color, making it flash red and purple/something like that anyway.
