    Default Simple Tooltip Addon

    Can you lead me to where i need to dig?
    Is it possible to change default Tooltip (strings, colors, background, etc...) via UI.Native.Tooltip?
    or i need to create new own Frame and do something like "hide default tooltip, place on his position my Frame"?

    i am newbie for creating addons, lua scripting - but this is not a problem for me to deal with it

    It is possible, but the user would have to hide the native UI tooltip himself in UI settings provided by Rift.

    That said, your tooltip would be ever so limited.

    Yes.
    And the tooltip currently displays information that is not querryable with API methods. For example (if I'm not mistaken) there is currently no API call to find out whether a unit or world object is part of a quest. But I haven't digged into the most recent PTS changes in that area yet.

    That is not possible, correct.
