WHAT IT IS:
Combat Reticle is a graphical add-on that greatly enhances visibility and utility of the on-screen reticle for targeting and interacting with items, NPCs, and other players in the game world. The primary goal is to make the reticle more visible during combat to improve targeting accuracy. This is accomplished by allowing the user to customize the reticle image, color, opacity, scale, rotation, and animation mode. A customized reticle can either use a single image or include an addition overlay image with it's own independent visual settings. Considering the large number of included reticle images (73 and counting), and the fact that there are nine distinct reticle modes that can be used and configured, the result is a nearly infinite number of reticle configuration possibilities! (for the math geeks, it's over 1e300 combinations!)
Combat Reticle does not acquire or display any target data. This is partly due to performance considerations in large PvP battles, and partly due to a preference for a minimal UI. If you would like to have target data, it's possible that Combat Reticle could coexist with another reticle add-on. Compatibility with Rainbow Reticle is confirmed. I have not tested with others, though I plan to. If you use other target information reticle addons, though please report any issues you encounter to help improve this. Thanks! - Calia

Combat Reticle supports nine specific reticle modes. Each mode can be customized, disabled, or set to game default (i.e. show standard ESO reticle). Stealth modes utilize the default ESO "stealth eye" as the base reticle, but an overlay image can be used with full customization options. The reticle modes are:
Interactive - An interactable item or friendly NPC/player character is targeted.
Target Hostile - An enemy (hostile) mob, NPC, or player character is targeted and range is close enough to activate skill bar. Like the skill bar, this does not always mean that the target is close enough to attack.
Target Neutral - An attackable neutral mob is targeted and range is similar to "target hostile" mode (skill bar is not shown until unit is attacked).
Combat - Player is engaged in combat.
Normal - Default reticle mode (i.e. none of the above modes and not stealthed or disguised).
Stealth Interactive - Player is hidden and an item or friendly NPC/player character is targeted and can be interacted with.
Stealth Target Hostile - Player is hidden and an enemy (hostile) mob, NPC, or player character is targeted.
Stealth Target Neutral - Player is hidden and an attackable neutral mob is targeted.
Stealth Combat - Player is hidden and engaged in combat.
Stealth Normal - Player is hidden and no other reticle modes apply.
Please refer to the "readme.rtf" file located in the "docs" folder of the add-on for complete, detailed information on how to use and configure Combat Reticle.
