KuiNameplates  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 243
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

243
* fix issue where auras were not updated on mouseover frames
* fix an issue where auras and other such things would sometimes appear on the wrong frame
* add support for combo points' anticipation stacks
* change colouration of the addons' titles, so that they don't break alphabetic sorting on the addon list
* bump TOC

Is it possible to add an option to show the targeted nameplate bigger than the others?
Possibly. That might be a hidden default cvar actually (I'd still need to add support for it if it was), I know there are/were a few for threat that did that.

Please make an option to make the alpha of all text 100%
Easy.

Also the red chastbar of not brakeable casts is very hard to differ from the red nameplate
It'd be simple to make an option for that so I probably will. Also want an option for castbar height at some point.

btw do you plan to let ppl translate the options? I woud make the german one
Not particularly, because I can't reliably test anything except engb. If I did it well (i.e. used the ace localisation libraries properly) it shouldn't really cause any problems, but there's a chance it could just break entirely for one particular localisation and I'd never know.

Thanks!

This is the sort of nameplate I've been looking for!

The only issue I have at the moment is the threat. Is there any way you could add in colors for High Threat and Low Threat as well as Has Threat?

I've tried messing with the code in the layout.lua but after I engage in combat the nameplate just returns to reaction colors.

tl;dr

When out of combat, reaction colors
When in combat, HasThreat = Red, HighThreat = Yellow, Low/NoThreat = Green

I'm okay with just code help, I'm not too fussed about in-game configuration.

Many thanks

I think its called "bloat" in TidyPlates.
The highlight is nice but the blue glow is not enough for me see my target especially in pvp.

Love how you solved the target problem only noticed that the small nameplates have the same sitze texture so that its longer than the nameplate



Please make an option to make the alpha of all text 100% (castbar text and the bottom heath text). Also the red chastbar of not brakeable casts is very hard to differ from the red nameplate (I think the shild is enoth) - so I always lua edit the castbar to gray like the normal castbar. Last thing is the raidicon I always change size from 20 to 16 because I think right now its oversized

btw do you plan to let ppl translate the options? I woud make the german one

No, it isn't. Bleh. I'll have a fix uploaded there soon. Once it's verified I'll put it up here.

The VialCooldowns problem is as a result of a bug/discrepancy in its code. The developer posted a temporary lua file to fix the issue in the comments on Curse, here. I gather they'll put a proper update on Curse soon enough.

Thanks!

Could you post the contents/previous contents of your custom.lua? There's nothing in there by default to cause anything like that and I haven't heard that from anyone else.

I can't test code at the moment but adding this in the mod:PostShow function in custom.lua should possibly do what you want:
Lua Code:
  1. frame.health.mo:SetAllPoints(frame.health)
  2. frame.health.mo:SetJustifyH('CENTER')
  3. frame.health.mo:SetAlpha(1)
Or if you want to edit create.lua just drop it at the bottom of the function you quoted and replace "frame" with "f".

Please add filter for nameplates so it blacklists certain mobs, this would be very usefull for Tortos
Planned. Can't promise when though.

Hi. Is it possible to not anchor alt health to health? I'd like to place it in the center of the main (i.e. http://puu.sh/2DDLH/084e64a5be.jpg), but it doesn't stay centered when its lenght change, even though justify is center. And I can't display it if its set point doesn't depends on f.health.

Code:
------------------------------------------------------------- Alt health text --
function addon:CreateAltHealthText(frame, f)
	f.health.mo = f:CreateFontString(f.overlay, {
		font = addon.font, size = 'small', outline = "OUTLINE" })
	f.health.mo:SetJustifyH('CENTER')
	f.health.mo:SetPoint('BOTTOMRIGHT', f.health,
		-53, addon.uiscale and (1/addon.uiscale) or 1)
	f.health.mo:SetAlpha(1)
end
Btw if I make changes in the (renamed) custom file, the game get tons of mini-freezes, whereas if I directly modify create.lua there's no problem at all.

Use this line instead:
Lua Code:
  1. frame.name:SetPoint('BOTTOMLEFT', frame.health, 'TOPLEFT', 2, [your y offset])
For reference, the function which creates the name text is at the bottom of create.lua.
Hah, I had the right region just never the right combination of points. Works perfect! Thanks a bunch, love your addon.
