A lightweight addon for friendly nameplates to hide healthbars, unstack, and be untargetable in instances.

What does it do?

Remember when Blizzard stopped us from modifying friendly nameplates inside intances? Well, we can actually still change a few things. This addon utilizes two hidden commands to modify friendly nameplates in instances (raids and dungeons) by removing the healthbars and making them untargetable. This essentially makes the nameplates function like the default character names except they scale in resolution, making them easily readable in a zoomed out raiding scenario, as well as eliminating the chance to accidentally target another player’s nameplate or have them push enemy nameplates off the screen.

How does it do it?

It simply loads two commands when you load into the game:

  • SetCVar(‘nameplateShowOnlyNames’, 1)
  • C_NamePlate.SetNamePlateFriendlySize(0.1, 0.1)

The first command disables the healthbars on friendly nameplates while the second command minimizes the clickable part of the nameplates so they don’t block your mouseclicks, push enemy nameplates off the screen or fill your entire screen when the group is stacked up. You can enter these commands manually in-game, but they reset every time the UI reloads on logins, logouts, or loading screens. This addon will automatically load the commands for you.

I edited my nameplates and it doesn’t work anymore, help?

The commands unfortunately reset when changes are made to the nameplates, so you will have to /reload to reapply them.
