KuiNameplates  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 240
by: Kesava [More]
Prettier, pixel-perfect nameplates with auras. Configurable through interface options (open with /knp or /kuinameplates).

Class colours on hostile players can be enabled in the default interface options, under "Names" - check "Class Colors in Nameplates" at the bottom right.

If you're having issues with nameplates being in incorrect locations or being unclickable, first try unchecking the "Fix aliasing" option in configuration.

More up to date versions can often be found on Curse. Please try using that version before reporting a bug.

Current features:
  • All of the default nameplate features
  • Pixel perfect!
  • Auras!
  • Combo points
  • Tank mode - recolour health bars when you have threat (enable by checking "Enable tank mode" in options)
  • Customisable display of health for friendly or enemy units
  • Pretty fading in/out of frames (disable by unchecking "Smoothly fade" in options)
  • Automatic toggling of nameplates when you enter or exit combat (enable by checking "Auto toggle in combat" in options)
  • Cast & incoming healing warnings, useful for PVP (disabled by default, check "Show cast warnings" in options)
  • Configuration profiles
Health display patterns:
The text to display for health on different frames is determined by two simple patterns: one for friendly frames and one for neutral and hostile frames. These patterns can be changed in the options dialog (/knp). They must make use of specific conditions and results, in the following format:
condition1:result1;condition2:result2;condition3:result3;
There must be at least one condition (and one result). Any other conditions are optional.

Possible conditions are:
"=" When the unit is at maximum health...
"<" When the unit's health is less than maximum...
"=<" When the unit's health is either less than maximum or at maximum...
Possible results are:
"m" ... Display their maximum health (i.e. 123.4k).
"d" ... Display their health deficit (i.e. -46.5k).
"p" ... Display their health percentage.
"c" ... Display their current health (i.e. 76.9k).
"b" ... Display nothing.
The patterns used by default are:
Friendly units: =:m;<:d;
Which means:
When the unit is at maximum health:Display their maximum health;
When they're below maximum health:Display their health deficit;
Hostile units: <:p;
Which means:
When the unit is below maximum health:Display their health percentage;
Planned features:
  • Frame blacklisting
  • Stuff I can't remember
240
* fix issue where target glow would sometimes appear on all nameplates
* fix issue where castbar would sometimes fade out on newly shown frames
* fix castbar shield doesn't fade
* reduce default width and height of normal frames slightly
* add power word: solace to default whitelist

It doesn't have any pixel fonts by default. It's just aligned so that the individual elements of frames aren't blurred - something that's tricky to do with the default UI's nameplates without just disabling AA.

1.Have not testet latest version but looks like you move the debuffs/stacks on the screen.
I always use stack nameplates it works fine if you make the debuffs a bit smaller and put it more close to the nameplates Only the casting text is in the way but thats OK.

2. Can you please add an option to change the seturation or color of the nameplates you are not targeting/not targeting? Or maybe you have a better solution for this problem: If the fade option is enabled its hard to find a fade alpha where you can still read the "nameplates you don't target" but can still differ them from the one you target. Tidyplates solves this problem by a targeting frame texture but I can't think of a good way to add one here.

3. I had problems with the yellow/red cooldown text on the icons because shadow icons are yellow and its unreadable. But switched to cyan and white as only colors and I haven't had any problems with any class. DK blue buffs are not cyan and mage has no cyan dots so I think thats the best cooldown color since most dots seam to have red or yellow icons.

Having my own aura module gives me the opportunity to try to make it look decent, you see. I'll definitely look at making it and of course it'll be easy to disable.

Thanks!

Bah I hate that option of plate buffes I play arena too but i think it looks awfull. Use Gladius. Only good looking way woud be to just show the ccs in front of the other icons. Had to remove every cc spell manually sin platebuffs since the not show option won't work. If you realy implement this than please add an option to disable it compleatly

Hm. Fair enough. I haven't tanked for a while (and never as a paladin) so I didn't think about that. Both good points. I'll have another look once I've solved addon incompatibilities.

yes paladin things may be passive they will be on the mob as soon as you attack them but isen't it possible and important to "multidot" especially if you tank? if there are to many you can't see what already has your dot.

Problem is for me if I disable whitelist: Short channeled spells like Mind Flay are shown on the auras. If you now enable only spells longer than 3 seconds then important spells with short duration are not shown e.g. Silence are not shown any more... so I think all in all a Black list + only show players debuffs woud be shorter than a whitelist?

Just added aoe effects that are on the ground I think its important to see if a mob runs out of the aoe especially if the aoe slows the mob. The ground effects often look biger than they realy are so its only possible to see it from the debuff.

Re: spells

Pekti:
That was indeed bugged. I'll have it fixed in the next version, thanks for letting me know.

Tonyleila:

Also if I were listing passives I may as well just list every single debuff that a class can do, and if I were doing that, then there'd be no need for the whitelist at all. But that's why I have an option to turn the whitelist on and off - and the time thresholds. You may like that.
With AOE effects, particularly if you're looking at the character's nameplate, you can already see whether or not they're in the AOE, right? Other things are good though. Stuns, roots and slows should be included and I need to work on hunter traps and global auras like CC, CTF flags, etc.

-At some point- I also want to have an interface for the whitelist so you can customise it from within WoW without having to redo it whenever there's an update.

Thanks again.

Combat toggle

Anyone else having issues with the combat toggle? Mine appears to be unresponsive, both checked and unchecked. Updated the addon this morning to the latest version - and really digging the new options/config settings

For now though, search for this line in Kui_Nameplates_Auras/auras.lua:
Code:
addon:RegisterSize('frame', 'aurasOffset', 20)
Changing that number will change the vertical position of the auras frame.

And thanks for the spells, it's difficult to make sure I've made good choices sometimes, so I can always use advice for those.
