I am looking for a couple of display addons mainly aimed towards PvP.
I am mainly after ones that do some of the following:
1. one that would dispaly when i am entering and leaving combat
2. one that alerts me when enemies have used both ofensive and defensive CD's, also keep track of their timers
3. a good ui frame that shows me health and effects (including CC and CD's) of both team and enemy team.
4. also any other good addons! especially for hunter!
Most combat text AddOns should be able to do this:
Icicle and Enemy CD and Interrupt Bar can track cooldowns, combat text AddOns can probably announce them as they're used (as can GladiatorlosSA).
Gladius/AUF in the PvP section I linked above can handle the enemy team and announce when they use their trinkets and other cooldowns. LoseControl can add CC durations to friendly and enemy unit frames.
Looking for an addon that makes my target HIGHLY visible, especially when its one of several similar mobs so i can tell at a glance if im facing it and close enough and not have to read that up on my screen (checking my buttons for glowing procs to click). Closest i found was Tidyplates with names off so only my target has a name, but thats still not visible enough for me.
In EQ, there was a big ring around the main target's feet so you could tell what your groups target was. That was an ingame feature. Anything similar to that as an add on?
We can modify and/or anchor stuff to the default nameplates, but that's as close as we can get to modifying anything in the 3D world. It would be reasonably simple to write an AddOn that attaches a texture to your target's nameplate, would this one be suitable?
I've just written the AddOn I talked about in my previous post, using the texure I linked as the default one.
To make the AddOn, copy/paste the code blocks below into their own empty text documents and save them with the specified name/extension (capitalisation is important). Make sure you don't save them as .txt files. Once you have both files, move them to a new folder called TargetNameplateIndicator in your Interface\AddOns\ folder.
You'll also need to install LibNameplate for this to function (it's installed like any other AddOn):
Tried it as you said, didnt work for me but thanks for trying. Not going to sweat it, im now honestly eyeing the exit out of here for good in the next few months. I have no hope that MoP will be any good for my main Warlock.
After some testing, I've got the AddOn working properly.
Here's the new core.lua code:

I've just published the working version to Curse and WoW Interface.
Edit: Both sites have approved it now.
