You would pretty much need a full nameplate addon to accomplish what you're looking to do, and there's a major drawback to hiding the nameplate elements while keeping them active because you can still click on the nameplates but won't be able to see them.

It's possible (although complicated) to make the nameplates non-interactive, but it's all-or-nothing; you can't make friendly nameplates non-interactive while still being able to click on enemy nameplates.

If you only want to show the vertical lines, open Crosshairs.lua and add "left:Hide()" under the "local left" line and "right:Hide()" under the "local right" line near the top of the file. For horizontal lines do the same thing for top/bottom.

Making it work for your focus target or only friendly or hostile units would require rewriting a significant portion of the addon and I don't have time to design and integrate a configuration panel into it for people to switch between options.

No, because it needs the nameplate to figure out where the unit is. You could hide all of the nameplate elements so you couldn't see them, but you'd still have to enable friendly nameplates for the addon to track them.
I apologize in advance for quite a number of questions:

a) any suggestion on how to accomplish that with the blizzard nameplates?

b) should be possible to make it work for 'focus' targets though, when friendly nameplates are enabled, right? ;-)

c) also, is it possible show either the horizontal or vertical line? :P

d) would it be possible to choose if you wanna see it for friendly or/and hostiles? =)

To move the crosshairs down relative to the nameplate, you will need to change two lines.

Line 188:
Lua Code:
  1. local x2, y2 = frame2:GetCenter()
Change to this, where "50" is how far down you want it to go
Lua Code:
  1. local x2, y2 = frame2:GetCenter()
  2. y2 = y2 - 50

And line 209:
Lua Code:
  1. local x, y = plate:GetCenter()
Change the same way, just make sure the offset is the same number
Lua Code:
  1. local x, y = plate:GetCenter()
  2. y = y - 50

I can't check in-game right now but I think that should do it. You may need to adjust the offset to get it to look right.

Great addon, I use it alot now very nice for finding out where I should use chain heal and healing rain.

I would like to know how I can modify your addon to lower the target to be on the persons head.
