Rainbow Reticle
Version: 1.4.1
by: calia1120 [More]
This add-on colors the reticle (cross-hairs) based on what it is pointing at, including hostile targets change it to red for example.

It also can optionally color the reticle when pointing at guild mates, friends (from friends list), and group members. Additionally it has options to display the level of the target, as well as the target's health current / maximum values and/or as a percentage.

It also ignores trivial "critters" that are not hostile and only level 1, so as to keep from being distracting.

Just a note, if someone is both on your friends list and in a guild with you, the guild color will override. I'm working on a preference setting for this, along with a color picker to set your own colors, along with some other things.

May be compatible with other reticle addons. Compatibility is confirmed for Combat Reticle, which is another addon that I am on the author team for.

Some history
Rainbow Reticle was originally created by Mitazaki, and was later continued by mctaylor with some help from Garkin for the Craglorn patch.

It's long been one of my favorite addons. With the changes to the game, it was much in need of an update. I hope you guys like it!
v1.4.1 (2/5/17)
* Fixed a small issue with other player names not showing when All setting turned on.

v1.4 (2/5/17)
* Cleaned up some functions, have eliminated the use of the manual critter list.
* Fixed an issue where the reticle was not properly changing colors when name display options were turned off.
* Updated options, now can also still show health values without name display. The health text is not coloring as it should when name display is off, but reticle color is changing properly. Testing some further options refinement per user requests.

v1.3 (1/2/17)
* Updated LibAddonMenu to 2.0 r23
* Updated reticleover functions for human players (Thanks Baertram!)

v1.2 (10/4/16)
* - Updated LibAddonMenu to 2.0 r22
* API updated, compatible with Shadows of The Hist (100016) and One Tamriel (100017)

v1.1 (7/14/16)
* - Updated LibAddonMenu to 2.0 r20
* API updated, compatible with both Dark Brotherhood (100015) and Shadows of The Hist (100016)
* Removed Veteran Rank functions, replaced with Champion Rank equivalents
* Partially updated the critter list - this is still a work in progress
* Changed up the settings menu a bit - have some new functionality in mind for this for a future version as well.

I've adjusted it so that names can be hidden and the reticle still colors properly. I've also adjusted it so health can be displayed without the name, but the health text is not coloring as it should (the reticle itself is changing properly though).

Part of it has to do with the All setting, it overrides a handful of other things, so I'm going to be breaking up the options menu a bit more as I have time.

Edit: I found a small workaround to hide the names for now, if anyone wants to use it. Use it at your own risk. Don't bother the addon author about it if it causes any errors or problems. Make a backup first.
With this option, this mod would be (is) exactly what I've been looking for. Sleek, simple and contributes much to a more structured combat experience. LUI also provides a coloured reticle sans names, I believe, but I feel it's much too extensive to be used only for that, and I'm not particularly interested in its other functions.

Thank you Zinival, and thank you very much calia for this all in all great mod!

1. Open RainbowReticle.lua with Notepad++.

2. Edit line 253 by changing (false) to (true). This will hide the names even with them enabled in the options.

Find line 253, which looks like this:
Lua Code:
  1. RainbowReticleUnitName:SetHidden(false)
Then change line 253 to:
Lua Code:
  1. RainbowReticleUnitName:SetHidden(true)

There has never been an option for text size. It could be related to your UI scale.
I could swear, there was an option for this.

Yes, text can be hidden via the settings. Also are you still having an issue with a UI error, or is that all sorted now?
It's working now. I can't hide the names, if I hide the names the reticle stop changing colors. I need to have the names enabled for the reticle to change colors. That's what I was saying.

No. Pointing the reticle at another player provides no info. Point it at a NPC or critter and you get info.
