Tidy Plates

177 - MinimapCluster raised to LOW obscures some minimap buttons

With the MinimapCluster raised to LOW, some minimap buttons that aren't coded well are actually not in the cluster and end up being obscured by it. For example, the minimap button for Deadly Boss Mods isn't a child of the cluster, and has the BACKGROUND strata.

Curiously, in my inspection, my MinimapCluster actually is back in the BACKGROUND strata. I would not be suprised if Chinchilla Minimap was responsible, or possibly another addon. But the consequence of moving it to LOW and back to BACKGROUND is it's now higher-up than the DBM minimap button despite being in the same strata.

I've attached a screenshot that illustrates the issue.

    Quite a valid point. I will remove the strata code, and let some other addon address this.

    Seems to be a similar issue. The upper picture with active TidyPlates and the other one without it:

    Personally, I prefer having the minimap above the plates, since they're supposed to be 'part' of the unit. I didn't have much of a problem with them floating above the minimap, though.

    Is it Tidy Plates' job to modify or fix other parts of the UI, not within the scope of nameplates? I'm going to wait for more feedback on this before making another decision.

    Incidentally, I also find the idea of having the minimap on top of nameplates to be strange. Nameplates are the only really movable UI element on my screen, they should be allowed to obscure other nonessential UI such as the minimap. If I need to see my minimap I can rotate my camera very slightly.
