TidyPlates-No Overlapping?

Postby zipspally » Tue Jan 31, 2012 7:47 am

I recently started playing again after a five month break. Got my UI back to where it was EXCEPT Tidyplates does not have the option "Allow overlapping" anymore. I do not tab target. It seems slower to me, rather than just seeing the mob that you are losing; clicking its plate and GG. This is hard to do when they are all stacked on each other. Am I just missing it in the tidyplates config?

Oh my soul! Hopefully this is the answer I've needed! I've been having soooo many targeting issues lately. Like can't even click on blisterings fast enough or elementium bolt...

I NEVER had problems with targeting things, and I've always hated tab targeting because it isn't as reliable. Hopefully this will fix it.

One thing that I found that makes picking up targets REALLY easy (for me at least), is to use the size setting in TidyPlates...

Basically, when I'm tanking I don't care how much health the mob has, because it's not my job to kill it, it's my job to hold aggro. I set the mod so that when I have threat the plates are green in color and as small as physically possible (they will almost disappear because they are so small). I set them to turn yellow and scale up to normal size when someone reaches 100% of my current threat, and then they are 2x their normal size and turn red when someone passes 110% threat.

This makes is SUPER easy to target that one stray mob getting lose, because it's the only name plate that is even really discernable. I don't really like when there is a large group of mobs, having my ENTIRE screen covered by plates, so I just let them stack, and set up the addon as described above.

If that works for you, great. If not, I'm glad that you found what you were looking for.
