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

Find this line in layout.lua:
Code:
local deficit, isHpMax = max - curr, curr == max
Replace it with this:
Code:
local deficit, isHpMax = max - curr, false

To show a % sign, find this line in layout.lua:
Code:
big = floor(curr / max * 100)
And replace it with:
Code:
big = floor(curr / max * 100)..'%'

To also show both values as one line, disable alternate health text (/knp hp showalt) and change the same line as above to this:
Code:
big = floor(curr / max * 100)..'% '..kui.num(curr)
I think that's what you wanted? The font is a bit big for that, really.
Thank you I had adjusted the font acordingly

I'll look into it. I think so for totems, but I'm not sure about pets.

Re: Some modification questions

First, how would I remove the outline for the nameplate text?
In layout.lua, change this line:
Code:
self:SetFont(kui.m.f.yanone, size, 'OUTLINE')
to
Code:
self:SetFont(kui.m.f.yanone, size)
And remove instances of
Code:
, outline = 'OUTLINE'
(including the comma).

Second, what would I change to move the text on the nameplate up the Y axis a little, so the text rests on top of the health bar and does not overlap it?
Find the following lines:
Code:
frame.health.p:SetPoint('BOTTOMRIGHT', frame.health, 'TOPRIGHT', -2, -3)
Code:
frame.level:SetPoint('BOTTOMLEFT', frame.health, 'TOPLEFT', 2, -3)
And change the second number (-3) to something higher - probably 1 or 2. I can't test at the moment.

Lastly, how would I remove the shadow behind the bar?
Removing the shadow is more difficult, it's embedded into the texture and I'd need to do some testing to make sure positions/sizes stayed correct if I made a shadow-free version, or to change the coordinates. I'll keep that in mind for when I'm able, though.

Thanks for the feedback.

Some modification questions

Hey! Awesome addon; best nameplate addon I've seen yet. I have a couple minor modification questions if you wouldn't mind giving me a hand.

First, how would I remove the outline for the nameplate text?

Second, what would I change to move the text on the nameplate up the Y axis a little, so the text rests on top of the health bar and does not overlap it?

Lastly, how would I remove the shadow behind the bar?

Thanks so much!

I'll give that a shot!

Any way we can set it to show class colors in PVP for health bar?

Kinda confusing when I'm trying to pick my target out.
