USE: 'Threat': any indicator expect icon or text indicator | 'Threat: Text': text indicator
NOTE:
Two separate statuses:
Status 'Threat':
This will show three customizable colors depending on the threat that group-/raidmember has on his target.
Only threats >= 50% are shown:
1st color: 50% - 70% | 2nd color: 70% - 90% | 3rd color: >90% | 4rd color = aggro color = 100%
AGGRO resp. aggro color is defined with standard Grid module GridStatusAggro (GridStatusAggro.db.profile.alert_aggro.color) ... so don't disable or delete that module.
100% threat = aggro!
Status 'Threat: Text':
Threat text display as additional status.
eg: '95%' means player has 95% threat.


Please only use this indicators/statuses if you NEED it!!!
Please only use this indicators/statuses if you know how to setup your Grid!!!

If you are new to Grid: DO NOT USE THIS ADDONS!!! Grid itself has all you need when you start using Grid.

Enjoy!

I want to have your babies. The threat module and the 3. text line are a godsend.

kunda, without having run your modules yet, I think these are great additions to Grid. Personally I look forward to testing your threat module. In any case, no matter if they are stable or not, please upoad them to the SVN - that's what the SVN is made for

I tried them and they are great. Small bug for me in the MT Icons localisation though as both enUS and deDE have ["MTs"] = true which seems to cause a problem (I got it working but not sure if it was the right solution).

My plug in is, erm, slighty odd and allows you to enter custom abbreviations so you can have, say, a players called "JeanLucPicard" appear as "JLP" or "Luc" and not "JeanL" or "Jea". Someone on here wrote the hard bits for me

Oh please post these modules so that they appear in files.wowace.com for my updater. The MT and threat modules are very much wanted.

Default Re: [Grid] Modules: Threat,RaidIcons,MTs / Indicators: Text3,SideIcons

After raiding with the Threat module I can only suggest to change the default colors to dark orange/orangeish-yellow/yellow-greenish as they can then be used with the aggro indicator, which defaults to red (I think). Then you'll end up with a gradient red to yellow indicating aggro and threat.

Oh, even though having threat as additional module can offer additional UI status display options, I wonder if it wouldn't be better to merge it with the aggro module and move this functionality to the core. Grid is already too complicated as is, so why not try to make the configuration as easy as possible.

Got an error when loading grid with the MT status module:

[2007/10/01 19:54:22-648-x1]: GridStatusMTs\GridStatusMTsLocal-enUS.lua:7: AceLocale(GridStatusMTs): Can only accept true as a value on the base locale. "deDE" is the base locale, "enUS" is not.
Ace2\AceLibrary\AceLibrary.lua:133: in function `error'
AceLocale-2.2-40629 (Ace2):223: in function `RegisterTranslations'
GridStatusMTs\GridStatusMTsLocal-enUS.lua:7: in main chunk

I'd love to try this out!

notrachel & tauranion: I fixed the toc in GridStatusMTs. Should now work.

That's why I made it customizable, but default colors can change. I tested with different colors, the colors I used for default are clearly recognizable for me...hmm depends on settings and may be some kind of color blindness. Can you give me rgb codes?
One additional note: I think it is not a good idea to use the same indicator for aggro and threat. For me it is better recognizable if I use border for threat and default upperleft corner for aggro.

Merge with aggro module...I don't know, it's up to you and Pastamancer, if you want to do it, it's ok.
