Trying to identify a targetting mod...

Hello. Does anyone know what addon causes the white outline around targets in this vid? I would find this soooo useful! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QLOwkPfU-M

I don't see a link for a video on your post, but "tab" in your keyboard is like next target and it outlines your target. I think that's what you're talking about.

Make sure a key is assigned for it:
CONTROLS > Targeting > Cycle Preferred Enemy Target

It used to look like this:


It was changed in an update and now looks like this:

Tab target was nerfed into oblivion. The only practical use it has now is as a sort of "wall hack" so you can see where people go if they LoS you.

It's totally useless for the purposes of actually hitting your intended target.

It's made fighting sorcerers completely annoying because when they start doing the atronach dance, they are more or less untargetable. Same goes for NPC guards and the like.

Well it's more clear which enemy is targeted now, the old version was to big and indistinct. But with the new one it's harder to see when the target is focused.

I prefer the new version, because I play in 3D and the target highlight is now directly on the target not on the screen like the old one.

But how can you tell when you are actually targeting the highlighted enemy? Before, it was more ambiguous with enemy you had selected with thab, but when the corners were filled-in, you knew with certainty that if you used any ability, it would hit the enemy you had tab selected.

The new way is so hard to tell, because the white glow from tab target hides the red glow of what you actually have targeted. I would like a hybrid of both, so we get both the white glow AND the four corner triangles that change from outlines to solid when you are actually targeting the enemy you selected.

Maybe something like this this could be done with an Addon by using unit id's? I'll do some research on it.

You cannot change the 3d objects so it might be hard to achieve your goal by help of an addon.
You could spawn an object, a texture 'arrow' maybe, next to the unit if you get the x and y and z coordinates of the unit.
But it would consume a lot of memory I guess to create/destroy the textures.
I'd say its not possible then :-(
Otherwise I'd love an addon to show signs above group members ;-)

No, but you don't need to for what he wants to do.
Just display a label/ui when the targeted enemy is the reticle-over.

For my add-on Target Whisper I first tried to only keep the targeted enemy, but then I realised that you might not only want to whisper enemies. The code was somewhat experimental as there are no good functions for Prefered Enemy Target, but I'll see if I still have it somewhere and try if it would be good enough.

Here's best I could do (function wise, I'll update UI design later).

In the lower part change search parameters from title to author and enter CaptainBlack.

In the list you'll find TargetFocus

Would it be possible to use something similar to Rainbow Reticle, which can add information right next to the reticle concerning health and such depending on the configuration, to display the focused and targeted message (or perhaps an icon or something).
