Kib: Quest Mobs - Nameplate Quest Indicator

Version: 1.15
by: Tosaido [More]

This addon will add a quest icon above any mobs nameplate if it is involved with any of your current quests.
It'll show Red if any quest is in progress and blue if the mob can contribute to any bar objective quests.

This addon is part of a collection of addons i have, created/am going to create, It's designed to be a very simple and lightweight addon. If you have any concerns or recommendations don't hesitate to get in contact with me

This addon is compatible with Kib_Config: A robust config system with a gui which allows for addon options, global options and profiles all in one place.

Available options with Kib: Config

- Various different quest indicator icons
- Opacity
- Colour
- Various position offsets
- Show quest tasks on the name plate
- Disable in an instance
- Disable when attacking the mob

It can be found here: http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info24215-KibConfig.html

-- 1.15 -- .toc update for 7.1
- Fixed an issues where group quests where being mistaken as bonus area quests
- A new colour option has been added, which is used If you have completed the tasks in a group quests but
someone in your group hasn't.

-- 1.14 -- Should now work without Kib: Config

-- 1.13 -- Improved compatibility with Kib: Config
- Cleanup

-- 1.12 -- Various bug fixes
- Added option to disable the indicator when the mob is in combat with you (enabled by default)
- Added option to disable the indicator when in an instance (enabled by default)

-- 1.11 -- Now compatible with Tidy Plates
- Added additional options

-- 1.10 -- Complete rewrite for 7.0 and compatibility with Kib_Config.
- Removed complete quest indicator
- Changed default normal incomplete quest indicator colour to red
- Added many custom options, which can be accessed with Kib_Config
- Five unique textures
- Scale
- Colour
- Opacity

-- 1.02 -- Should now work with Tidy Plates or any other addon for that matter

-- 1.01 -- Fixed a variable issue

-- 1.0 -- Release

Sometimes no unitname is returned and yet it's an area mob with a percentage. In these cases the mark isn't shown because the area flag is set to nil. To fix this do the following.

Open c_core.lua, the function ScanPlate(plateData) to the following

Code:
    local function ScanPlate(plateData)
        local PlayerQuest, GroupQuest, AreaQuest, QuestTasks = nil, nil, nil, {}

        Tooltip:SetOwner(WorldFrame, "ANCHOR_NONE")
        Tooltip:SetHyperlink("unit:" .. plateData.unitGUID)
    
        for i = 3, Tooltip:NumLines() do
            local line = _G["KibQuestTooltipTextLeft" .. i]
            local text = line:GetText()
            local text_r, text_g, text_b = line:GetTextColor()
			
			--check for specific rounding situations, sometimes tooltip returns exactl decimals
            if text_r >= 0.99 and text_g >= 0.82 and text_b <= 0 then 
                AreaQuest = true
            else
                local Unit_Name, Progress = string.match(text, "^ ([^ ]-) ?%- (.+)$")
				--sometimes we have empty string unit_name, check for that
                if Progress and Unit_Name and string.len(Unit_Name) > 0 then 
					 AreaQuest = nil
					local current, goal = string.match(Progress, "(%d+)/(%d+)")

					if (current and goal) and (current ~= goal) then 
						if (Unit_Name == "" or Unit_Name == GlobalDatabase.Player_Name) then 
							PlayerQuest = true 
							QuestTasks[#QuestTasks + 1] = Progress
						else
							GroupQuest = true
						end
					end
				elseif Progress and not AreaQuest then
					--we have SOMETHING so lets mark it anyways
					PlayerQuest = true
                end
            end
        end

        local QuestType = (PlayerQuest and 1) or (GroupQuest and 2) or (AreaQuest and 3) or 0
        CachedMobs[plateData.unitName] = {QuestType = QuestType, QuestTasks = QuestTasks}
    end
Primary reason for this is the continued scanning of the tooltip when a match is found. Which negates the previous flags. There are other ways to do this but this is the simplest.

would it be possible to add an option to:
a) disable it entirely in dungeons

and b) (maybe a bit more complicated) maybe remove the symbol as soon as the mob you're attacking is tagged? that would be extremely epic!
Haven't looked into it yet, but it definitely seems doable, Thanks for the suggestion

Hello, I would just like to let you know that it doesnt work with tidy plates IF you have a skin installed, in my case I had tidy plates and the blizzardplates (theme / skin) - however as soon as I remove the skin your addon works perfectly ! I wanna thank you alot for this, you increase my experience alot!
Hi, ill take a look at these skins. Off the top of my head i cant think of the problem, if it works without skins. Perhaps a new plate is created and the original is hidden/0 opacity? May not be till next weekend though.
No worries, take your time and enjoy the game!
Unfortunately i haven't played in over 5 months and still wont be able to play lol... not counting logging in to see if an addon works. Busy with life stuff

For the time being until i release Kib_Config you can change a few settings with the addon by opening b_register.lua found in Kib_QuestMobs addon folder, in a text program and change the variables within [Defaults = {}].

TextureVariant = (Min = 1, Max = 5)
ScaleOffset = (Min = 0.2, Max = 3)
Alpha = (Min = 0.1, Max = 1)
NormalQuestcolor = (Min = 0, Max = 255)
AreaQuestcolor = (Min = 0, Max = 255)

(Note: When changing the values, don't go below Min and above Max or errors may appear and only replace the values, don't add and remove them)
