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.

You don't need to edit the lua to do that, you can change the "friendly health format" in /knp > health display to:
=:b;<:d;
If you meant names, adding the following to line 125 of layout.lua should achieve that:
Lua Code:
  1. if frame.friendly and cur == max then
  2. frame.name:Hide()
  3. else
  4. frame.name:Hide()
  5. end
But I can't promise it won't break anything.

Line 125 should be directly under:
Code:
    frame.health:SetValue(curr)
Thanks.

You can change the width by editing line 23 and 25 of core.lua. However the size of the click-box won't change, and it may be buggy; I haven't actually tested changing the width. So where line 23 is this by default:
width = 110,
You could change 110 to, say, 55 to halve the width. Just remember to keep the comma at the end of the line.

That's the shadow, or glow. Or something. It's supposed to be there and there's no option to disable it. I should probably add one, though.
For now you can get rid of it (when it's not being used for the threat glow) by changing line 100 of layout.lua from:
r, g, b = 0, 0, 0
to:
r,g,b,a=0,0,0,0
That -should- make it invisible.

Is there any way I can adjust the width of the nameplate?

I find nameplates to be little too wide for me..

is there any option that I can change the width of the nameplate?




Here is an example.

I am used to using DocNameplate style nameplates, but after using 15 mb heavy weight nameplates for 2 years, I really want to use something light weight and has essential features.

But, I really want to use something that is not as 'wide' as most nameplates. (I tired other name plates that comes with adjustable width, but they were really clunky and not as good as yours =/...and I really don't wanna go back to NPA. )

Hi Kesava,

I use kuinameplates since 1 year and It's the best nameplates addon by far ! Thanks !

A little suggestion about your new auras feature, it would be awesome for pvp purposes if we could add auras from other classes too using their spellID and if possible customize their sizes like an addon that is no longer maintained named platebuffs that looked like that :



For example on this screenshot, the warrior just used avatar & recklessness and the auras appear above his nameplate. If kuinameplates could do something like that it would be the best xmas I ever had !

Kind Regards.

Re: class colouring

Late reply time! -I- haven't removed it, that option is provided in the default settings, even when you don't have any addons installed. It is possible that another addon could be fiddling with it, but it's definitely not mine and I'm... uh, almost certain it's still there by default. I haven't checked recently.

Re: I get this when i open Social Menu(O keybind) or /raidinfo

As far as I know, that's a bug in 5.4.1. A lot of addons have been triggering it despite having nothing to do with the function it names. Nothing I can do about it as far as I'm aware, just hope it'll be fixed in 5.4.2.

Try disabling BugGrabber though, does it still happen?

Yes, go to /knp -> Health Display. Under "Friendly health format" enter "=<:b;". Copy that to "Hostile health format", too.

Can you add an option to change the strata of the nameplates?
Yes, I'll look at doing that.

Thanks.

Hi Kesaba, Thanks for create this addon, can you please help me to customize that?.

1: The health number, centered in the health bar, and if can be posible..... make a gradient (the text) color by percent of health, (green full hp, yellow middle hp, red little hp).

2: Show only the remaining time to finish the cast aligned to the right.

Point 1:

Point 2:


I be very grateful if you help me to make that nameplates perfect for me.

Thanks.
