KuiNameplates  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 240
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
240
* fix issue where target glow would sometimes appear on all nameplates
* fix issue where castbar would sometimes fade out on newly shown frames
* fix castbar shield doesn't fade
* reduce default width and height of normal frames slightly
* add power word: solace to default whitelist

The combat text that floats above my target is underneath the plates and I'd like for them to be on top. I tried to find a way to set the combat text to tooltip, but that doesn't seem to be working. I looked around through the lua files for kui but I'm not all that good with code, and only found one instance of strata in the layout.lua, where it looks to be set to 'BACKGROUND.'

Any help on this would be tremendously appreciated, thank you!
Unfortunately that's not possible, partially as Blizzard's floating combat text isn't exposed to lua. The same applies to speech bubbles. They can't be modified or even found by addons. This is a problem with the default UI and I can't do anything about it (the default nameplates do the same thing).

There are things that can be done to sort-of "work around" it, like making custom floating combat text implementations and trying to connect it to the right nameplate.. but that quickly becomes unmanageable. I might play around with it as a plugin, though.

Thanks!

Re: Question!

Frame width can't currently be changed reliably. Auras can't be resized without code changes but I've been planning to make configuration for that for.. a while. Might play around with it tomorrow.

Thanks!

Yep, shouldn't be difficult to add. At the moment I believe the threat glow changes colour to orange when you're losing threat, but I can add an option to customize that and expand it to the health bar too.
Thanks for considering it !

yep at the moment the glow changes, but with a high number of plates + high res and during intense fights, its quite hard to spot ^^

regards

After using Tukui/ElvUI since later WOTLK I've finally swapped to a different UI (RealUI) which comes with this addon.

So far I love it. It's very sleek and sexy. My only issue with it seems to be the lack of a "filter" feature like ElvUI nameplates and Tidy Plates seem to have. This is a very handy feature for raiders, it allows you to add names to a list and have their plates be hidden or have their plate color be different and a larger scale (useful for banners in SoO as well as mind controls on Heroic Sha and Garrosh).

Is there a way to obtain this functionality or is it already planned?

Edit: so after doing a few BGs I think I know what the problem is. I'll -try- to have it fixed in the next version (relative from the current version on curse, of course).

Small problem with your addon:
Some times it shows the auras in PvP, some times it doesn't.

A few people have also documented the same problems here: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...y-players-(PvP)

Any chance of a fix? Thanks heaps for your addon, I love it except for this small problem!

Weird. Tried it again and it seems to work on some classes in PvP. For instance hunters. :s

Probably something wrong with my setup somehow.

It looks like it might be trying to set the font to something which doesn't exist anymore, so if using the most recent version doesn't help you can also try using a different profile (with the default settings) or resetting your profile in /knp > expand "Kui Nameplates" in the addon list > click "Profiles".

Hi,

Would you consider adding a "Transition" state to the Threat plates ?

When tanking with these plates, knowing that you are "losing aggro" of a mob is quite useful, and is currently the only thing i can see missing in these quite awesome nameplates (coming from Tukui/elvui)

it would be something like :

Aggro = Green
normal = red
Losing threat/gaining threat = yellow

Cheeers
