This addon modifies the game tooltip to provide some very specific changes. These changes include changing its background color based on the mouseover unit's reaction to you (red for hostile, yellow for neutral, green for friendly, blue for non-PvP-flagged players). It also colors both the first line and, if the unit is guilded, the second line a shade of yellow to emphasize them. Additionally, it removes the "PvP" line from the tooltip, and adds a line showing the name of the unit which the mouseover unit has as a target. By default, the tooltip is located in the exact middle of the screen, but can be moved to a new location with simple slash commands ("/nitt"). You can even opt to have the tooltip follow your mouse cursor instead of remaining in a fixed location ("/nitt cursor").

History of Changes
See the readme file in this addon's folder, or my author portal, for an explanation of the versioning system.
- Updated to account for the addition of guild name to the default tooltip in 2.1.
- Changed TOC number to 20100.
- Now uses the EventsManager library to register events, increasing efficiency.
- Fixed the error that occurred when mousing over a unit in the raid window or a unit's pullout frame.
- Ambiguated the tooltip modification function so that it no longer explicitly references GameTooltip. It can now be used for other tooltips by passing the tooltip object as the second argument.
- Efficiency improvements via a bit more caching and a change from getglobal function calls to a direct indexing of the global environment.
- Fixed an inconsistency in the compatibility code that prevented the addon from working properly on non-expansion clients.
- Rewritten for efficiency and for compatibility with The Burning Crusade. To use this addon in classic WoW, just check the "Load out of date AddOns" box at the addons selection screen.
- Added the ability to relocate the tooltip with various slash commands ("/nitt").
- Changed TOC number to be compatible with 1.12 patch.
- Abstracted the "Civilian" and "Leader" strings so that that part of the tooltip modification function will work in any locale.
- Updated with readme, new programming paradigm, framework for localization, and full compatibility with the 1.11 patch.
- Renamed from NichTooltips to NicheTooltips.
