And here is the screenshot (annotated) of what CensusPlus might look like for WoD xPac.



Once I believe the background artwork was a single image... then it was split into 3 side by side parts. This one is split so many ways.. expanding and contracting all the zones is now just a matter of sliding the parts from side to side (lots of overlap which you can't see).
I'm reserving the Guild data area as is to allow me to shrink that area to make room for any future race/class expansions.
We have plenty of Up-Down room so for levels 101-200 I'll just add a 2nd tier below the existing tier.

I added the Additional Connected spots to have us covered just in case Blizzard EU goes wacko... but so far Blizzard seems to be stopping at 5 member realms.

When we get to the late beta/pre-release phase I'll merge these graphic and code changes ... and as with 5.0.4 (aka pre-MoP release) I'll reactivate the code to blank the no data bars until levels 91-100 goes live (as was done for 86-90.)

“And now breaking news from our on-site reporter!”

Reporter,”Mr. Bringoutyourdead can you tell our audience what happened here?”

BOYD. “Well I was just working on my project when with no warning I was stunned!. It was a stupid Rogue ganking me from behind.”

Reporter, “So you were incapacitated. What happened next?”

BOYD, “He pulled out a one hand sword, I think it was a Noble Dal'Rend's Sacred Charge http://www.wowhead.com/item=93856 and then he started hacking and slashing at my work. It was horrible! When he was done he reached in and pulled out my last bit of opaque texture and vanished!”

Reporter, “Is your work destroyed?”

BOYD, “ No the current version is fine, but my future planned release was in ruins. All I had was a pile of bits on the floor, well that isn't really accurate, the smaller graphic survived unharmed and the working code wasn't touched. I've been working for hours trying to piece something back together.”

Reporter, “How is your reconstruction going?”

BOYD,” I thought you would never ask...”

Now that the background skins have been eliminated, I can start replacing most if not all the XML code with calls inside of the Lua code. CensusPlus is one of the few addons where the XML file used to structure the layout of the display is larger then all the rest of the code in the Lua files.

This will open up the possibility of making use of code libraries to make CensusPlus better, faster, and cost much less then $6,000,000 man.

Work is ongoing to enhance guild tracking.
It is my hope that I'll be able to show all guilds in a connected set without selecting a member realm as required at on the current version.
The member realms will continue to be a filter selector for those who need to limit the guild list to specific member realms.
This can't happen until we go to WoD release, and it might not make the initial release for that expansion pack.

Also I'm working on the options menu.
We will be going to the Blizzard options interface (accessed via the games options/interface/addon tab)
options changed here will be account wide.. no more setting verbose settings for each character.
However if you want different setting per character the old options window will be available for per character override settings.
