KuiNameplates  Updated Today!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 2-7
by: Kesava [More]

Prettier nameplates with auras.
Configurable through interface options (/knp or /kuinameplates).

Notable features
  • Pixel perfect!
  • Auras!
  • Combo points and other class powers!
  • Tank mode!
  • Pretty fading in/out of frames (disable by unchecking "Smoothly fade" in options)
  • Other things!

I have a problem/question!

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

If you have any issues, feel free to PM me, post it in the comments on Curse, or on GitHub (but check through that list to make sure it's not already there, first). I don't get any sort of notification for comments posted on WoWI, so that might not be the best option.

Change logs available @ CurseForge.

I won't enforce that, you could put the code wherever you like (as long as it's included by an addon). You could make an addon called Kui_Themes and put it there if you like.

Not unless Blizzard implement that in the default options. I could make it -look- the same, but they'd stack over each other, and the click-box would still be smaller, which is the problem you're having. Addons can't change the size of interactive things in combat, so it would sometimes work, and sometimes not, which isn't great.

Kesava, can i give minions the same plate as the normal targets? because of this stacking problem, the "carrier" frame is alot smaller and i think, this is the main problem of this...

to outsource the theme data in another file is a dream for me, than i can update your nice addon without lose my theme... but please make it like this structure:

wow / interface / addons / kui_nameplates / files
wow / interface / addons / kui_themes / theme_x / files

I'm not going to full on support skinning because, as Anja says, this addon is pretty much already a theme itself - my theme - and there are other nameplate addons created purely with the goal of being themeable, like TidyPlates. It's a lot of work for me to implement something which other addons already provide.

However, I'll need to do this anyway, so I'm going to be adding a Post-function handler. More on that when it comes out. Really it's just to let me clean up the code a bit, make it somewhat modular so all the code isn't in 1 file as it is now, but it should also be possible for people like yourself to hook into it and modify things in the nameplates after critical events (creation, OnShow, etc).

yes but kui nameplates theme is from the kui layout so why he need to implement theme support? he doesnt need... sadly

my nameplates looks very diffrent, but i love my own style



but my problem now, the small minion plates are have a smaller carrier frame, so they stacked all too much inside, more and more problems coming to this blizz update, i hate those updates want the minions plate the same look like the normal plates

here the minions stacking problem:


another "problem" is the chatbubble of prat

the positioning with kui nameplate (hope the problem is in the original file also) is not good

Since this update was a bit rushed that line's repeated around line 412. You'll have to change it there as well. As you noticed, it's because the positions have to be changed around in order to display for trivial mobs properly.


Thanks!
ok thanks alot

frame.name:SetPoint('LEFT', frame.level, 'RIGHT', -2, 10)

it all works fine until I go near a mob with "minions" and then go back and go near a normal mob the name text goes back to the "default" location and not the one I specified on that line

Fixed in the next release. Unexpected changes to the default UI. Also, not enough testing.

Edit: uploaded 3.5.1. Waiting for verification as of writing this.
