Contemplate
Version: v2.4
by: Aeyan [More]
Contemplate is a very simple AddOn designed to enable enemy nameplates automatically in combat and hide them when not.

There is no configuration necessary, just install and you're good to go.



Note about Patch 4.0.1
There's some general glitchiness with nameplates in 4.0.1 due, as far as I can tell, to Blizzard's new 'bloat' plates, meant to emphasize threat. You can fix some of it by running a console command:

/console bloattest 1

Here are some other variables to play with to modify the nameplates:

/console spreadnameplates [0, 1] - Makes nameplates overlap.
/console bloatnameplates [0, 1] - Makes nameplates larger depending on threat percentage.
/console bloatthreat [0, 1] - Makes nameplates resize depending on threat gain/loss. Only active when a mob has multiple units on its threat table.


Hopefully Blizzard will get nameplates a little more stable in the near future.
v2.4 -- Everything seems to be in working order with the addon, so toc'ing it current. Check the addon page for a special note about nameplate function in 4.0.1.

v2.3 -- Haven't noticed any trouble with the new patch, so just a toc bump.

v2.2 -- Another gratuitous toc bump.

v2.1 -- Knocked the toc up a notch.

v2.0 -- Updated for 3.0 (Now with cvars!)

I haven't had this problem. Only way I can replicate this is if I manually turn them on before I log out and even then, they're disabled after being in combat for the first time.

Sorry about the delay, but I've updated it for the 3.0 patch. Enjoy!

Well, that's a real drag! I am so used to Contemplate doing its thing. Maybe someone will figure out another way to do it... I hope.

Hitting "V" still toggles them on and off. There must be a way.

"Works with 2.4"

The TOC still says 20300.

Actually, I did toggle it. Might just take a little while.

Edit: Ah, there it goes.

Yeah, dumb mistake on my part while slapping it together. Uploading again as we speak to fix that.

Create a subdirectory called Contemplate in your Interface\AddOns\ folder, and unzip the archive there.

I have a kinda newb question here - where do I put the files? in my Interface/addOns folder, or in the WTF folder? (this is probably very obvious to everyone except me)

Thanks
Nao
