KuiNameplates  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 228
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
228
* make auras significantly more reliable
* change tankmode uiname to "Threat", in anticipation of additions to its config page

* add options to change reaction colors
* split "don't fade units at low health" into two seperate options for hostile units and friendly units
* fix "fade all" doesn't work consistently when faded alpha is set to 0%
* fix castbar sometimes fading out on newly shown frames where it was inappropriate
* fix logic error in kui frame fading code which may have caused some problems with repeated frame fading
* add upper limit to name width (using default layout) to prevent ridiculous overflows
* remove kui_nameplates_absorbs because that was nowhere near ready and shouldn't have been pushed anyway, whoops
* bump kui minior

* fix lua error when cast time display is enabled but name is disabled
* reduce name text jiterry-ness using centred layout
* add option to only use frame glow as threat glow (hide it when there's no threat)
* add option to show auras on trivial units

* reposition castwarnings to fit with new layout
* add option to use left-aligned layout, similar to the pre-223 layout (in /knp > general)

* add spark to castbars.
* make castbars fade out rather than instantly disappearing.
* cast time display is now disabled by default.
* change layout of healthbar text; names are no longer truncated.
* change layout of castbar text; spell name is no longer truncated.
* change default font to Expressway Rg Bold. Works better at smaller sizes in WoW.
* change level text for bosses to "Boss".
* remove option to colour unit names. This can be achieved with a small custom.lua modification.
* remove maximum cast time from castbar text (only current time is shown now)
* remove Accidental Presidency from Kui_Media.

Shouldn't cause any problems. All that code's going away in the 5.3 update anyway so I'll wait until then to "fix" it.

Do you have TidyPlates installed? I believe the default theme is a nicer Blizzard lookalike, so it could be that. If not, try disabling all other addons, see if it works. Then you can re-enable them to try to track down which could be causing it.

I was chuckling at the "bloat". Which is a fair point, I admit. (I honestly found it really funny. Gotta be able to laugh at yourself, right? ;-) Call it a cautionary tale; It's much harder to take away features than it is to say, "Sorry, that's not in the scope of this project".

Quick note, beta version for the 5.3 PTR is up on Curse if anyone's interested in that. Should also work on 5.3 release day if I don't manage to post it on time.

I suspect that was because you didn't completely restart WoW after updating the addon - you have to restart wow when new files are added and invalid/non-existant textures show up as green boxes. So, assuming you've.. restarted wow since you posted the comment. Which I expect you have. It should work now.

Nope, just a TOC version bump because I forgot to do that with 187.

what you think, is there a way to show the dmg on top of the plates? i think the problem is, to check who get the dmg (from the combatlog) - i have tested sctd to attach the dmg on the plates, but the main problem is, when many creatures with the same name are in the zone, then the addon puts all dmg numbers on the nearest plate

The same would happen with my implementation if I added something similar. The problem is we (addon authors) can't reliably work out which event in the combat log belongs to which nameplate in the physical world -unless- you've moused over or targeted it. Until then we have to rely on the names.
Now that we have castbars being displayed on all units, something might've changed behind the scenes to allow us to work it out more reliably, but I haven't looked into that yet. For example, we could match up cast events and cast bars being displayed, but that still requires units to be casting.

Or unless it has a raid target icon

Friendly pets aren't differentiated from other friendly NPCs in any way as far as I'm aware so I can't reliably detect that. But near the top of layout.lua is this table:
Code:
kn.r = {
    { .7, .2, .1 }, -- hated
    { 1, .8, 0 },   -- neutral
    { .2, .6, .1 }, -- friendly
    { .5, .5, .5 }, -- tapped
}
Those are all the colours which can be changed at the moment.

I see - Pet nameplates can be canged here by changing friendly color.
But can't figure out how to change color of fiendly players. Currently they have blue nameplate.
Also changing tapped color dosen't change anything.

EDIT: I ok for friendly player its this one:
Code:
			-- friendly player
			self.friend = true
			self.player = true
			r, g, b = 3, .3, .6
