NamePlater (Custom Fonts/Styles/Sizes)
Version: v0.12
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

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

It's been an issue for a while now.

If it's not possible, well, at the very least, making the nameplates bigger and adding an outline is already a nice change!

Thanks!

I'm looking for a way to change colours but there doesnt seem to be some clear way to do it, it was the same for changing font sizes but i found a way, maybe i will figure something out
