Hide unreadable names

Hello world

I want to talk about something that annoys me when I play. When people are too far from me (30 meters) their names above their heads become little and unreadable. So I would like to create an addon that hide people names that are too far from me to be readable. But I need to keep showed the names of people that are close enough to be readable. I would be thankful if one of you can help me with some code.

Here is a screenshot that shows the issue:

As you can see, the names of the players in the inn are undreadable because they are too far. But the closest ones are perfectly readable.

I doubt there will be a way to turn them off on an individual basis. It's possible that nameplates connected to a unit ( target, player, raid1, party1, mouseover) will allow some distance tests but whether it will then allow you to turn off a single nameplate because it is too far is doubtful.

There is a cvar that allows you to adjust the display of ALL nameplates, so you may want to see if there are options linked to nameplates that will help your display issue.


That aside, hopefully someone will have more definitive knowledge on what is and isn't possible nowadays.

This is not a useless thread. I just learned something myself. Anytime someone makes a post, is an opportunity to learn something from them.

That's some wise words

Now I try to make a macro (or an addon) that hide / show ALL the nameplates, can I continue here?

I tryed this in a macro but it does not work:

Lua Code:
  1. /run SetCVar("nameplateHide", 0)(n==1 and "Enabled" or "Disabled")

Do you know how to make it work?

  1. Don't use that addon, it's rendered defunct
  2. Don't just change cvar names in the hope they exist
  3. Use KuiNameplates
