About RangeDisplay

Estimated range display. Type /rangedisplay for configuration or /rangedisplay locked to lock/unlock the frames.

RangeDisplay is a simple range display addon. It is using spell range, item range and interact-distance based checks to determine the approximate range to your current target. Due to the whackyness of interact-distance based checks, recent versions only use those when spell/item based checks are not possible . The display can be configured in many ways (displaying only the max range, adding border and background, etc).

Currently you can set up RangeDisplay to show your current range to your target, focus, pet and mouseover units. The mouseover unit range can be anchored to the mouse or placed at a fixed position.

New in v3.8.0: It is possible to add sound notifications to "range sections" (similar to color setting). The sound will be played when entering the section. If two sections have the same sound file attached to them, then the sound is not played again if switching between the two sections.

This sound notification is enabled by default for the target unit's close range section.

Displaying max range only: if you want to display only the maxRange, you need to set Text to "%d" and tick the Reverse option for the section(s).

    can i change it to display only 1 number, the exact distance in yards, instead of "x of y" ?
  • #249
    No it cannot display an exact range.
    There is no in-game method by which that can be done, only whether you are in or out of the range for any given ability.

    Hey just a note that Curse packager choked on v3.9.3,
    there's nothing in the .zip but the changelog file :)
  • #246
    Thanks, deleted it. Will try again tomorrow :)

    I just got this as my HUD does not have a range display, and it's super useful. I've messed around with it and got it to my liking except for one thing: the green box background behind the range. How do I get rid of it? I really just want the numbers, not even the word "Target." Is that possible?
  • #242
    Sure, just lock the frames (with /rangedisplay locked, clicking the icon, ctrl-clicking the green frame or simply entering combat ;)

    cheers,

    things working good. though i noticed if i mouseover,target,focus target a NPC, or say a dead corpse the range display doesnt follow any of my color/range configurations and max range it shows is 28+ no matter how far i am. when i get inside that 28 it then starts changing colors but not to my specifications. thanks for such a great addon btw

    Hello,

    Make sure you configure the section colors for the "mouseover" unit as well (each unit type has a separate configuration, but there's an option to copy one configuration to all other active units).

    Also make sure that you test the mouseover ranges with "proper" targets (critters / mobs / other players outside of sanctuaries). Sanctuaries (shattrath/dalaran) are "no attack" zones and spells are "disabled" there, so I can't use them to check for ranges and fall back to interact-distance based checks (that's when the 0 - 7 - 8 - 28 ranges are shown).

    hope this helps,

    cheers,

    yah I noticed that if I target,focus,or mouseover some friendly npc,Dead corpses of any kind, critters, Flight masters it doesnt follow any of my configurations. This was in sholazar basin. It does the 0 - 7 - 8 - 28+ max with default colors. I have it set up where i copied them all to be the same. It's nothing horrible, just weird as it wasnt like that pre patch
  • #240
    Erm, corpses never showed correct ranges (only the 0 - 28 thing, or showed nothing at all before). Depending on your setup, the 0 - 28 type ranges _should_ get colored though (like if you have white for 0-10 and red for all the rest, you should see changes), but when you only get 0-28, it's not much usable anyway, it's just there so that you could get a very rough approximation.

    cheers,

    Short range - display only 5 or 8 yards from target. I would like to set it for 7 yards (immolation aura range) but i just cant. Doesnt matter if ill set shor range display on 6 or 7 it will be always 5 or 8.

    5,8,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45 etc. and we cant change it.

    Please could you do something with that ?

    Hello,

    Unfortunately those are the only ranges that I can check with the blizzard API that works for non-party/raid targets, so no, I can't make it any better in that regard, sorry.

    cheers,

    When are they going to unbreak this add for 4.0.1?
  • #233
    Hi,

    v3.8.3 is a quick fix for 4.0.1, I'll make further cleanups in LibRangeCheck-2.0 then I'll release 3.9.0. Till then, 3.8.3 should work.

    cheers,
    mitch
