KuiNameplates  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 228
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
228
* make auras significantly more reliable
* change tankmode uiname to "Threat", in anticipation of additions to its config page

* add options to change reaction colors
* split "don't fade units at low health" into two seperate options for hostile units and friendly units
* fix "fade all" doesn't work consistently when faded alpha is set to 0%
* fix castbar sometimes fading out on newly shown frames where it was inappropriate
* fix logic error in kui frame fading code which may have caused some problems with repeated frame fading
* add upper limit to name width (using default layout) to prevent ridiculous overflows
* remove kui_nameplates_absorbs because that was nowhere near ready and shouldn't have been pushed anyway, whoops
* bump kui minior

* fix lua error when cast time display is enabled but name is disabled
* reduce name text jiterry-ness using centred layout
* add option to only use frame glow as threat glow (hide it when there's no threat)
* add option to show auras on trivial units

* reposition castwarnings to fit with new layout
* add option to use left-aligned layout, similar to the pre-223 layout (in /knp > general)

* add spark to castbars.
* make castbars fade out rather than instantly disappearing.
* cast time display is now disabled by default.
* change layout of healthbar text; names are no longer truncated.
* change layout of castbar text; spell name is no longer truncated.
* change default font to Expressway Rg Bold. Works better at smaller sizes in WoW.
* change level text for bosses to "Boss".
* remove option to colour unit names. This can be achieved with a small custom.lua modification.
* remove maximum cast time from castbar text (only current time is shown now)
* remove Accidental Presidency from Kui_Media.

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.

As for scale, I'll be making options for frame/font sizes. How well it works depends on what the API feels like letting me do.
Awesome work on these beautiful nameplates! Can't wait for some resizing options

KuiNameplates is causing this message - "Interface action failed because of an AddOn".
I turned on my taint log and it says:
7/6 15:26:37.067 An action was blocked in combat because of taint from Kui_Nameplates - NamePlate6:Show()
7/6 15:26:37.067 Interface\FrameXML\UIParent.lua:2405 UIFrameFade()

Just a slight thing I noticed doing FL trash, There are these little elementals that start out called "Unbound Smoldering Elementals" and then they get ignited and named changed to "Unbound Blazing Elementals". The nameplates do not recognize the change unless I toggle them off/on. Usually wouldn't worry bout it but when they change to blazing you target them and kill them and having the name plates all still say smoldering is a little confusing at first

Re: Non-Interruptable Cast Shield

Haven't updated for 4.2 yet (I'm in the EU) although I didn't get that on the PTR. Either way, I'll see tomorrow I suppose.

Edit: (Edit again: this was fixed in 002.3.2) since 002 there have been a lot of ADDON_ACTION_BLOCKED errors while in combat. If they affect you or you use the in built voice chat at all, disable frame fading (/knp gen fade). I'll fix this in a minor release soon.
