NamePlater (Custom Fonts/Styles/Sizes)  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v0.14
by: kadeer [More]
Description:
  • Allows you to use custom fonts, change the style and size of nameplates

Important Prerequisites:
  • LibAddonMenu-2.0 required
  • Have to Restart game for the custom fonts to show (reloadui/relogin is not enough)
  • If disabling addon, you will need to teleport to a different zone to get the default nameplate font again

What it can do:
  • Use Custom Fonts (see section below to add your own, I have included a few)
  • Change style e.g. Normal, Outline, Shadow etc
  • Change SIZES of nameplate text

Instructions:
  • First make sure nameplates are enabled in settings
  • Next go to NamePlater options menu and change the font settings

Adding Your Own Custom Fonts:
(check out fontsquirrel.com for 100% free fonts)
  • Download a font and put it in the "Nameplater\fonts\" folder
  • Open "Nameplater_Constants.lua" with notepad
  • Under "Custom Font Display Name" add a name in speechmarks followed by a comma e.g "OpenSans",
  • Under "Custom Font Location" add the location followed by a comma e.g. "Nameplater/fonts/OpenSans-ExtraBold.ttf",
  • Save "Nameplater_Constants.lua" and make sure you added the coma to the end of the lines AND your entries are in the same position on each list.
  • Restart ESO so the font is loaded and then select it from the Nameplater addon menu
*TLDR put font in font folder, add font name and location to "Nameplater_Constants.lua" then save and restart ESO*

Restrictions/Pro Tips:
  • Dont use really long font location names, there is a limit e.g. "OpenSans-ExtraBold-super-duper-mega-wont-work.ttf"
  • Escape > Settings > Nameplates, Nameplates = ON
  • In nameplate settings change "Targeted" to "Always" so you dont look like a creeper when you are trying to see someones name because you need pixel perfect aim

Just wanted to throw a thank-you your way! I always had a bit of a hard time reading the nameplates, and this is great with a custom font w/ thick outline and resized.

try restarting the game (sometimes it needs to restart fully to load font files), try a different font style (OpenSans is good), increase the font size to the highest one (to make it easier to see subtle differences).

Hi there

I followed the steps to add my own font, and it does appear in the list in-game. However when I select it, the names don't show. It's just empty. I change it back to one of the ones included in the mod and they appear again.

Any thoughts on this? The font is 'fontin_sans_b' and I copy/pasted it from the LUIExtended media folder.

Thanks!

Im not sure it would be possible, but im happy with what it does currently, nice and simple.

I asked ZOS if they would allow colour changing the names but they wouldnt even do that

You are free to borrow my code and build something better (its a very small amount of code)

yeah without addon it will always reset back to normal when the player is "activated" e.g. teleport to zone/enter dungeon/trial or go near wayshrine etc but if you disable it and stay in same area it will stay the same, best thing to do is keep it on when you need it
