Infinity Plates  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: r9
by: Dawn [More]

Minimalistic and lightweight nameplates, based on Blizzard's plates. Somewhat customizable via InfinityPlates.lua, like changing the font, it's size, etc.

Designed with PvP in mind, but works as well for PvE.



Features
* works with PlateBuffs
* Totems are shown as icons (no longer available in r6+)
* abbreviates long names
* names are class/reaction colored
* smart aggro indication
* visible spell icon
* health percent value
- between 35% and 25%, value is yellow colored
- between 25% and 20%, value is orange colored
- below 20%, value is red colored
* featuring hankthetank's raidicon textures
* show hostile nameplates in combat and/or optionally hide them out of combat
- by default nameplates show in combat and do not hide out of combat
...

r9
* toc updated for 5.3
* added an option (showcbtext) to show/hide (true/false) cast name text
- castbar text hidden by default

r8
* toc updated for 5.2

r7
* health value changes color at low health, again
* some code clean up ...

r6
* updated for 5.1
* removed totem icons for now, due to a major rewrite
* changed default colors for units (neutral, hostile, friendly...)
- note: the purple color for tapped units is courtesy of Activision Blizzard ...

r5
* health percentage will now be hidden at 100% and shown otherwise

r4
* updated for Mists of Pandaria
* separate font option for names and numbers
* Totem list updated
... from what I found on Wowhead, got no shaman to test it, seems like they changed around/removed/added totems quite a bit
>>> this one might need feedback if broken/incomplete/missing something

r3
* highlight selected plate with a font shadow behind the name
* selected plates transparency will now always stay at 100%

r2
* make it work with PlateBuffs

r1
* initial release

For whatever reason blizzard decided to change the nameplate code again in 5.1 ... I'm currently very busy with work. To busy to look into it, atm. So busy that I grabbed TinyPlates for now. Even though I can't play with them at all... At least better than blizz plates.

Hope to get some spare time soon, maybe weekend. But no promises.

I was a little curious about TinyPlates, but was unable to find it ... Any links ?
Btw please find some spare time to fix infinity plate :-)

I definitely will fix them at some point, since I can't really play with anything else but those numbers anymore. The normal stuff seems like someone throwing some bunch of ugly crap into your face, lot's of useless info.

I agree with you. The best way to use nameplate.

The strange thing is that there is no any other nameplate addons that use a similar approach.

Mah :-)

Got a working version, needs some minor testing and code clean up, should be available later today.

Some things changed, though. For instance, Totem icons are gone (at least for now). Custom colored names are in.

Thanks for the update, I seriously hate using anything else.

Any chance of you making a 2nd version like before with the percentage always on? I find it easier to see Allies coming after me while doing dailies on a PVP server.

Would be good to have toggle for this, so you won't have to maintain two versions :P

The name is still shown at all times, so you have your indicator there. As an old PvP'er says "red = dead". Even though enemy player names are class colored, but hey you get the idea.

Btw, I forgot to add the health percent coloring at low values. Will upload a new version if I have some time.

nameplate scale

Blizzard scaled nameplates of mobs with less hp and yours seam to have the same function. Problem is they dont show hp percentage of the small mobs and the names are sooo smal that I can't read them.
But befor you work on this nameplates can you please update dNamePlates? I woud donate!

I refuse to use boss mods for years and am living proof that you don't need such stuff to succeed.

That being said, any more info on this? In which way? When? Always? ...

Bigwigs will work fine on the first attempt of a boss. Once we wipe, I have to reload my UI for it to continue working on the next attempt. If I don't reload, Bigwigs is broken in every way as if it wasn't loaded. Let me see if I can get you a .lua error tonight.
