RangeDisplay  Updated this week!  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v4.2.5
by: mitch0 [More]
Description:

RangeDisplay is a simple range display addon. It is using spell range, item range and interact-distance based checks to determine the approximate range to your current target, pet, focus or mouseover unit (if enabled). The mouseover unit display can be anchored to mouse, or placed at a fixed position. As of v3.4.1 interact-distance based checks are only used if the other two are unavaliable due to the strange way interact-distance checks work causing strange results with some mobs.

RangeDisplay is a front-end to LibRangeCheck-2.0, a library addon to
calculate the range estimates. DogTag also supports LibRangeCheck via
the [Range] tag, thus you can get range display in addons using DogTag
to build texts, like PitBull (unit frames) and CowTip (tooltip).

Note: RangeDisplay can only check for some specific distances, thus determining
a minimum and maximum range to the target. Some of these ranges are rather
large, so the range update may be slow, as it takes time to cover a bigger
distance. Unfortunately there is no way (that I know of) of providing higher
resolution for range estimates.

Options:

/rangedisplay locked
Toggle the locked state of RangeDisplay frame.
While unlocked, you can drag it to a position you like with the left mouse button and open its config menu by right-clicking on the frame.
While it is locked, you can click-thru the display.

/rangedisplay
Open the config GUI.

Install instructions:

NOTES:

After installing, RangeDisplay will be enabled by default, and unlocked, so you'll see a semi-transparent rectangle in the center of your UI that you can drag to a position you like. After finding a good place for it you should lock the frame with /rangedisplay locked, so that it won't eat your mouse clicks (note: the enemyOnly option only works in locked mode, too).

- disabled interact-distance based checks when spell/item based checks are available

v3.3

- Updated for wow version 3.1

v3.2

- Removed the checkVisibility option (it's not that useful now with the new ranges)
- Localization updates
- Fix melee range for Druids

r68000

- added configurable suffix settings
- added out-of-range color setting
- isler added some cosmos integration

r67546
- just a minor update to enable the profile management.

r67422

- fixed the problem when some badly written addon hooked us incorrectly
- deDE localization by Carylon (thanks!)

r44840:
- converted RangeDisplay to use the AceAddon/AceDB/AceConsole framework. Unfortunately this means that previous configuration is lost, but RangeDisplay gained Profiles, and better chat commands. Also, RangeDisplay should be configurable via DeuceCommander and Niagara now.

- New 'strata' option to allow setting the frame strata of the range display.
- Support for Gladiator Gloves (Shaman, Mage) in RangeCheck-1.0.

r43074:
- Fixed an issue where some other addon hooked OnMouseDown() badly thus preventing dragging the display frame.
- Better font handling.
- Minor speed increase in RangeCheck-1.0.

r42768:
- Renamed from RangeCheck to RangeDisplay because of a naming conflict and to avoid confusion with RangeCheck-1.0 (the library part).
- Added "Shoot", "Throw", "Gift of the Naaru" and "Mana Tap" to spell lists.
- New option to display range when out of range as "minRange +".
- New option to check for 'visibility range', too (~ 100yd).

- Font selection (font, size, outline, color) (only via GUI).

r41103:
- Changed spell list for Paladins and Warlocks, now RangeCheck should display the correct range for hostile targets.
- Removed the localization options from RangeCheck-1.0. Now the range is always reported in "min - max" format.

Change Log outdated?

The Change Log for RangeDisplay here on WoW Interface is (very) outdated. If it can't be kept up-to-date, perhaps it should be eliminated (or blanked out).

Hi,

That option went away when I added free form range formating. Now you can set up any text display for the given section, that is interpreted as a format string with two parameters: minRange and maxRange, and there's an additional checkbox: Reverse, which will swap the two parameters.

So, if you want to display only the maxRange, you need to set Text to "%d" and tick the Reverse toggle.

hope this makes sense
cheers,
mitch
Worked, thanks a lot. Keep up the good work.

Re: no options

Please make sure you're running the latest release of RangeDisplay. Also check if you get your options panel back if you only load RangeDisplay (and no other addons). If the options panel is still gone when RangeDisplay is "alone", then please report it (preferably via a ticket on wowace).

If RangeDisplay works OK when no other addons are present, then I'm afraid you'll have to hunt down the other addon that's in conflict with it. You might try installing Ace3 as a standalone addon and hope that fixes the issue, too...

cheers,
mitch

That was fixed by changing the loading order but I never got it to work.

Any suggestions other than I have to find offending addon?

Hello,
It's not possible to add the range to nameplates (at least not to all of them).
You could use the mouseover range-display to quickly scan nearby units though.
cheers,
mitch
Do you know any addon that adds range of your target to nameplates? That woud be very helpfull

Hi,

You'll need to copy the saved variables from under the wtf/config folder. I think it's called RangeDisplay.lua, too, but I can't check now.

Hello,

You'll probably need the newest version currently available from curse. The newest versions of my addons first appear on curse as my repositories are on wowace and the release versions are automatically uploaded to curse.com. I usually update stuff here after a brief "stability period". I'll probably update the MoP versions here in a day or two.

cheers,
mitch
I can completely appreciate ease of use, and I *also* appreciate the fact that you do update here - this site gets along better with my Linux box than Curse does. If I get impatient I'll grab it from there, thank you very much!

Re: Loving it!

Hello,

Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad you like it

Unfortunately this addon only works with units, so it won't work with objects. You might use the mouseover display to keep a tab on nearby mobs when looting chests, etc though.

cheers,
mitch

Is it possible to get distance to objects? As in, I'm trying to loot that chest and I don't want to be too near cause of the mob, finding the distance is difficult.

I can see it might not be possible at all, but I, at least, would find it useful. (I think...)

Have a banana!
