Overlapping Nameplates in 4.0.1

October 14, 2010 3 comments

The patch reset my nameplates to disallow overlapping. Unfortunately, the interface option to allow overlapping nameplates was removed from the game in this patch; so I suffered through a few heroics with jumbled jumping nameplates that wouldn’t stand goddamn still. I couldn’t tell if mobs were in front of me or behind me, it was that bad.

Anyway, the guy in charge of Tidy Plates has a solution. Simply enter:

/console spreadnameplates 0

(That’s a zero, by the way, if you can’t tell from the font), and your nameplates will overlap like a pro! You’ll still get the occasional disappearing nameplate, but that’s a bug on the server’s end.

The command will work with default nameplates as well as addons. If you decide you preferred non-overlapping nameplates, just enter that again, but with a 1 instead of a 0.
