shNameplates
A light-weight and beautiful nameplate addon that works right out of the box!

Why use this addon instead of some of the other famous nameplates? Simple: elegance, ease of use, and efficiency. Other addons similar to shNameplates are extremely "busy" or they are too plain. In some cases, they are highly inefficient when it comes to coding.
  • Unit Name
  • Raid Icon
  • Unit Level (using blizzard code to add difficulty coloring)
  • PvE coloring (blizzard based) and PvP coloring (class colored based)
  • Aggro and threat color (with glow overlay)
  • Castbar, Cast Time, and Spell Icon
  • Health Text Display (using color gradient for percentage)
  • Auto toggle on and off when in or out of combat (user set via config.lua)
  • Lots of config attributes that handle nameplate behavior, colors, fonts, and positioning (user set via config.lua)
  • Configuration that allows repositioning of the spell and raid icons (user set via config.lua)
  • Configuration option for TANKMODE (green coloring on aggro) and namecoloring (colors pvp enemy names with their class color) (user set via config.lua - PLEASE see changelog for more details)
  • Target cast spell names (for both channeled and cast)
  • Mouse over highlighting
  • Cool new fade in effects when nameplates appear
  • Target Unit POWER bar under health frame. SET TO ONLY IN PVP (b/c who cares about mob power at this point in the game)
  • COMBO points for feral and rogues...AND addition of showing Chi, burning embers, soul shards, holy power, burning embers, etc. (SELF buffs ony)
  • Now works with Icicle and/or Plate Buffs

NOTE: I want to thank the following authors: Caelian, Tekkub, Luzz, and Rothar. Especially Caelian, b/c I have based this addon to his famous addon caelNameplates

Your previous post regarding this is inaccurate as the lines you have mentioned are not the ones related to health values. Also you said that there will be an option to turn only health %, yet that is missing as well!

Could you please be SPECIFIC and tell me exactly what to change and the exact lines(as in, check which are they, not just try to recall them)?

Thanks in advance!
Author might've pulled them off an updated version we don't have yet.

About combo points
For multilang it must be
Code:
local _, class = UnitClass("player")
if class and (class == "ROGUE" or class == "DRUID") and self.combo then
instead of
Code:
local class = UnitClass("player")
if class and (class == "Rogue" or class == "Druid") and self.combo then
And I think it will be useful if nameplate will appear when rogue get stealth while cfg.autoshow = true
Sorry for my lang. Thanks for nice addon

Does this addon have customization options via the interface. I do not want to edit LUA settings to customize but I need something sleek like this but heavily customizable for my UI.

Causing Lag

I love shNameplates but I've noticed that with more than a couple visible it starts to lag my system. This gets especially bad on heroic Spine when there are 50+ bloods out. I haven't been able to figure out how to reduce this other than by going back to the default nameplates :/

Thanks in advance.
You can do that through keybindings in WoW, just use the show enemy nameplates binding isntead of show all nameplates.
He does not want to entirely disable the friendly nameplate. He only wants to disable the health-bar and keep the good-looking colored name. A feature that I also want and I have found it only on Docsnameplates that is currently not getting updated. In other words, we need a feature that you can have different visual settings on friendly and enemy nameplates.
This!

So much this! I miss those fancy friendly plates on docsnameplates.

I've been seeing a lot of weird spell casting lately. It looks like the person im targeting is casting something that was done by someone else nearby. For instance- just now in Twin Peaks there was a holy paladin and a frost mage. After killing the paladin, I saw the mage casting holy radiance. I've seen things like shamans casting flash heal too...
