KuiNameplates  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.

The default nameplates don't provide their owner's class as a variable, they just recolour the health bar. So what I'm doing in that code you modified is reading the colour of the default nameplates' health bar and putting it on to my addon's nameplates' health bar - not reading the class, which means it isn't available as a key in CUSTOM_CLASS_COLORS.

Similarly nameplate owners aren't given a unit definition unless you happen to be targeting the owner, in which case you still have to find the right nameplate (programmatically speaking, you can do this by checking that it is the only nameplate at 100% opacity) in order to work out which nameplate actually belongs to your target... All this means functions which take units, like UnitClass, don't work for nameplates.

To cut to the chase, to do this you'd have to do a sort of reverse-lookup to find the class given the colour of the nameplate. But that's.. more than a few lines of code. I'll look into it, though.

Thanks!

I doesn't track in Demonology or Affliction, and I'm not running any glyphs that would change corruption. I think another person in the RealUI thread also asked about the same thing.
I'll look at it when I get the chance, thanks.

CUSTOM_CLASS_COLORS

Hello,

Great addon so far

I tried to make the addon works with !classcolor but i know nothing about lua so i failed...

Under "enemy player, use default UI colour", i tried :

r = CUSTOM_CLASS_COLORS[select(2, UnitClass ("self"))].r

or

r = CUSTOM_CLASS_COLORS[select(2, UnitClass ("self.class"))].r

and some other things ...


I could use some help if someone know how to fix that.

Thank you.

Auras will only display over your current target, and they'll linger over past targets. When it comes to nameplates, the API doesn't provide a reliable way to track auras on any unit except your target. It should be displaying on any unit you target - there's no option to make it only track them on pets or otherwise.

Not as an option at the moment. You can edit core.lua, find this line:
Code:
        name      = 9,
(It should be on line 32) And edit that number to whatever size you'd like. Note that it may also affect some other text.

It's tracking for me, but I don't actively play a warlock. What spec are you? Do you have any glyphs that modify corruption?

Could you disable any other addons and see if it still happens?


Thanks.

I'm using it as part of RealUI, so I'm not sure if that changes anything.

Not in the menu you can change it in the lua file
Go to \World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns\Kui_Nameplates
open core.lua with a text editor
Change the RGB values from line 45-49 here
Code:
-- Custom reaction colours
addon.r = {
    { .7, .2, .1 }, -- hated
    {  1, .8,  0 }, -- neutral
    { .1, .3, .1 }, -- friendly
	{ .5, .5, .5 }, -- tapped
	{ .3, .3, .3 }, -- friendly player
}

Re: hi

Is possible to add the feature to enable / disable healthbars on friendly units unless you are in combat?
If you mean like the option there current is to automatically hide enemy's nameplates (but not friendlies), then yes, that's something I plan to add.

For now, if you -don't- want enemy nameplates to hide when you leave combat, you can open layout.lua and find/replace this:
Code:
nameplateShowEnemies
With:
Code:
nameplateShowFriends
And then check the "Auto toggle in combat" option. After making that change, it'll work on friendlies rather than enemies.

Thanks!

Yes, using custom.lua. Rename custom-rename-me.lua to custom.lua, open it, and add this line:
Code:
frame.bg:SetVertexColor(0,0,0,.5)
Immediately under the line:
Code:
function mod:PostCreate(msg, frame)
That will make the background 50% transparent. Change the ".5" to whatever value you want to customise that.

Not right now. I've seen a few comments about highlighting lower health units so I might look at doing that at some point, probably in an optional addon.

Thanks!
