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

Why do we need bigger nameplates? I think adding an option to make some nameplates like the DK Bloodworms to Trival nameplates woud be enough. Blacklist woud be better for that so that we don't have to whitelist every mob

Not in terms of making a whitelist, but now that I've got the option to change height (and i'll be testing one for width), I know that works without any apparent problems. Once I've got width in I just have to make a whitelist and that can be for a bunch of things. Like don't display for, display larger for, don't show auras on, etc etc.

I uploaded 208 here and on Curse at the same time because I'm pretty sure it's stable now. It's still pending verification here, but Curse have verfied it, so you can see the differences between 201 and 208 here.

Kui_Media is for generic things that I use in other (unreleased) addons, so bar textures or fonts. The media file in Kui_Nameplates is -just- for Kui_Nameplates.

And I have one question, why are there 2 media folders? one outside the addon folder and one inside?
Edit: actually there's a bug with 208 where enemy priests with class colour enabled will use the new tapped unit colour. Won't take much to fix though.

Might be fixed in 208 which I just uploaded here and on Curse?
I'm not sure what would cause that besides another addon, and I've never seen it so it's difficult to diagnose.

Yeah, I noticed friendly players weren't there after I posted that. That's fixed in the next version-ish. The logic for tapped colours looks broken, too.

Thanks!

Those are all the colours which can be changed at the moment.
I see - Pet nameplates can be canged here by changing friendly color.
But can't figure out how to change color of fiendly players. Currently they have blue nameplate.
Also changing tapped color dosen't change anything.

EDIT: I ok for friendly player its this one:
Code:
			-- friendly player
			self.friend = true
			self.player = true
			r, g, b = 3, .3, .6

Friendly pets aren't differentiated from other friendly NPCs in any way as far as I'm aware so I can't reliably detect that. But near the top of layout.lua is this table:
Code:
kn.r = {
    { .7, .2, .1 }, -- hated
    { 1, .8, 0 },   -- neutral
    { .2, .6, .1 }, -- friendly
    { .5, .5, .5 }, -- tapped
}
Those are all the colours which can be changed at the moment.

Or unless it has a raid target icon

Now that we have castbars being displayed on all units, something might've changed behind the scenes to allow us to work it out more reliably, but I haven't looked into that yet. For example, we could match up cast events and cast bars being displayed, but that still requires units to be casting.

Nope, just a TOC version bump because I forgot to do that with 187.
