Tidy Plates: Minimal  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 1.01
by: Kouri [More]
A minimalist theme for Tidy Plates.

At 100% HP, nameplates are fully transparent, and become more visible as a unit's HP decreases. I find this makes it easier to focus on targets with low HP and doesn't clutter your screen in busy areas like cities.
1.01
Updated for Tidy Plates 5.0 and WoW patch 3.2.

1.0
Initial release.

By far this is my favorite plug-in for tidy plates. I wouldn't use it without this. However, I was wondering if someone might consider tweaking this addon so it can have a DPS option. Im a rogue and having the combat points display on the nameplate would be very convenient.

I've seen some of the other plugins that have this feature, but they are over-produced and too flashy - I like the minimal style.

Like addon

I really like this addon, at first I did not, but I try again and I fell in love with it... I just have a small personal tweak, to see my current target percent of health, I just want the coding for it, thank you

Actually return 1.1 gives a much brighter red than just return 1. Goes from being darkish red to bright red which stands out far better.

Looks good. Here are some small changes.
Code:
-- Fade out units at full HP
function NAMEPLATE_ALPHA_DELEGATE(unit)
	-- return 1 - unit.health / unit.healthmax

	-- Start Custom Code
	local currenthealth = unit.health / unit.healthmax
	if currenthealth < 0.4 then
		return 1 -- maximum value
	else
		return 1.1 - currenthealth
	end
	-- End Custom Code
end

I just tried the following code in PvP and it seemed to work a bit better. They are barely visible from the start to make it easier to spot bad guys in close proximity and below 40% the bar lights up a whole lot more. I dont know much about LUA so if that code is abysmal id appreciate a fix

Code:
-- Fade out units at full HP
function NAMEPLATE_ALPHA_DELEGATE(unit)
	-- return 1 - unit.health / unit.healthmax

	-- Start Custom Code
	currenthealth = unit.health / unit.healthmax
	if currenthealth < 0.4 then
		return 1.1
	else
		return 1.1 - unit.health / unit.healthmax
	end
	-- End Custom Code
end

Wow ok nm, guess I just woke up or am retarded, but what I mentioned below (this being awesome for PvP) is exactly and only reason I got this in the first place, and it is PERFECT for that since I couldnt care less about the names of the players im killing and im not sure why I was trying to get this just right for PvE where it dont matter at all to me really. Awesome mod, my "problems" solved

They change after you engage but it would be nice to see that color before hand.
I'm guessing that this could be handled with some changes to TidyPlates' ApplyFontStyle() function, but you might want to run that by danltiger first.

Do you know of any way to have the names (turned them on) always show up under what the mob cons to you instead of white by default? They change after you engage but it would be nice to see that color before hand. Also, do you happen to know how I can address the issue whereby once I attack the mob, the default text is replaced by the con text but also gets the transparency/fading applied to it. Any way to separate the transparency between the bar and the text?

Or maybe have a way of having this mod not affect names at all, show blizzard defaults, and just show the health bar ever more so as their health goes down?

What you have here is great for PvP, but for PvE it becomes a pain as the mob nameplates disappear when you get close and it can sometimes make it harder to target them

"TidyPlates: Minimal" is the theme. I think you may have multiple themes installed. Make sure that you only have one at a time installed, or else they won't work correctly.

Because I don't like the look of the default nameplates. They're too big and clutter up my screen. Also does Contemplate fade nameplates depending on their HP?

True, you could do that, but name tags would still show. This makes them disappear at close range automatically. Plus it's one less hotkey I have to remember. :P
