KuiNameplates  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 243
by: Kesava [More]

Prettier, pixel-perfect nameplates with auras. Configurable through interface options (open with /knp or /kuinameplates).

Class colours on hostile players can be enabled in the default interface options, under "Names" - check "Class Colors in Nameplates" at the bottom right.

If you're having issues with nameplates being in incorrect locations or being unclickable, first try unchecking the "Fix aliasing" option in configuration.

More up to date versions can often be found on Curse. Please try using that version before reporting a bug.

Current features:

  • All of the default nameplate features
  • Pixel perfect!
  • Auras!
  • Combo points
  • Tank mode - recolour health bars when you have threat (enable by checking "Enable tank mode" in options)
  • Customisable display of health for friendly or enemy units
  • Pretty fading in/out of frames (disable by unchecking "Smoothly fade" in options)
  • Automatic toggling of nameplates when you enter or exit combat (enable by checking "Auto toggle in combat" in options)
  • Cast & incoming healing warnings, useful for PVP (disabled by default, check "Show cast warnings" in options)
  • Configuration profiles
Health display patterns:
The text to display for health on different frames is determined by two simple patterns: one for friendly frames and one for neutral and hostile frames. These patterns can be changed in the options dialog (/knp). They must make use of specific conditions and results, in the following format:
condition1:result1;condition2:result2;condition3:result3;
There must be at least one condition (and one result). Any other conditions are optional.

Possible conditions are:
"=" When the unit is at maximum health...
"<" When the unit's health is less than maximum...
"=<" When the unit's health is either less than maximum or at maximum...
Possible results are:
"m" ... Display their maximum health (i.e. 123.4k).
"d" ... Display their health deficit (i.e. -46.5k).
"p" ... Display their health percentage.
"c" ... Display their current health (i.e. 76.9k).
"b" ... Display nothing.
The patterns used by default are:
Friendly units: =:m;<:d;
Which means:
When the unit is at maximum health:Display their maximum health;
When they're below maximum health:Display their health deficit;
Hostile units: <:p;
Which means:
When the unit is below maximum health:Display their health percentage;
Planned features:
  • Frame blacklisting
  • Stuff I can't remember

243
* fix issue where auras were not updated on mouseover frames
* fix an issue where auras and other such things would sometimes appear on the wrong frame
* add support for combo points' anticipation stacks
* change colouration of the addons' titles, so that they don't break alphabetic sorting on the addon list
* bump TOC

1. I might be able to debug that if you tell me what resolution and uiscale (/dump GetCVar('uiscale')) you use, if uiscale is enabled. Keep in mind you have to reload the ui after enabling fix aliasing otherwise plates will just stop updating properly.

2. I believe they don't have nameplates in the default UI either. Nameplates were disabled for "trivial" units, and those seem to be sort-of-incorrectly flagged as trivial. I can't do anything about that, it's a Blizzard thing.

been using this so far without much problems.

2 issues I have faced:

1. When I turn on 'Fix aliasing', KNP is no longer appearing on top of character, it is some how move to bottom left of the character.

2. When doing Tillers farming, the mobs that 'proc' in the planting process have no nameplate at all, only name.

I have use default settings for all except removing 'fix aliasing' and having "=:m;<:c;" for both nameplates. Any idea what went wrong?

That's not possible with how it's coded at the moment and it'd take a lot of explaining to add it manually. Also you'd need to modify it again after every update.

often (but not always) when I rotate the view by holding the right mouse button and moving my mouse, the nameplates switch between the default and Kui nameplates.
I've fixed this in the next version. Something in 5.0 borked its detection of a default nameplate.

I have experienced an issue with Kui - often (but not always) when I rotate the view by holding the right mouse button and moving my mouse, the nameplates switch between the default and Kui nameplates. Here are the pictures:

Then I rotated the viewport back and forth (and killed an ogre in between - has nothing to do with the bug) and got this:

As can be seen, I use the latest LUI, with disabled LUI's nameplate module.

	frame.name:SetJustifyH('LEFT')

	frame.name:SetHeight(8)

	frame.name:SetPoint('LEFT', frame.level, 'RIGHT', -2, 0)
	frame.name:SetPoint('RIGHT', frame.health.p, 'LEFT')

devilArt: At the bottom of layout.lua, near line 1428, there should be code which looks like this:
Code:
-- frame
width  = 110,
height = 11,
It may be a little glitchy but you should be able to change the width and height by changing, obviously, either of those numbers. Addons can't reliably change the size of nameplate's click-boxes, however, so those won't be affected.

Not at the moment. And I wouldn't support that unless I could make it modular, so that this main bit doesn't become too bloated. I'm working on that at the moment so that I can add support for auras, move some other things into their own "modules" and clean up the code a little. No time-frame though.

At the moment I'm playing around with adding auras so I don't have to rely on PlateBuffs (or anything else for that matter). Next update might be a while unless there's a big bug, particularly since I'm levelling now. Just thought I'd say.

Yeah, I've noticed that. I'm guessing MoP changed the nameplates just enough to.. sometimes break. With no apparent reason. Difficult to test properly.

I'd never thought about that. Good point. I'll probably add an option to customise colours (along with reaction/reputation colours since I still need to do that).
