CensusPlus Work in Progress for Legion

Post by bringoutyourdead »

Thought I would show some of the changes, I am planning for Legion.
Your thoughts and comments welcomed.. I have even been known to implement other peoples ideas :lol:

Current version window
Image

Extend the outer frame for the new Demon Hunter Class
Image

Shift the Guild box
Image

Note the actual contents of the box still need adjusting.
Image

Extend the Level bars box
Image
The RED line shows 10 level bars.. as can be seen, I can not fit level 101-110 in to the new space.. so a left shift will need to take place.

The new level bar range will be from 20 - max character level
I am still thinking about how to keep an alternate display that will show levels 1 - 19 as captured by mouse over or targeting characters.

And finally the extended class box
Image
Unless something comes up between now and Legion pre-release V7.0.x
I expect this will be the new CensusPlus main window.
with some tweaks for button placement etc.

Looking good! One suggestion: the class order has long made little sense to the casual observer (it's vanilla classes alphabetically, with others in order of being added, with the entire lot flipped backwards...) and now demon hunter looks like they're going on the wrong end of the list, if the current order is to be followed. Maybe a good time to just put them all alphabetical/something else that actually makes sense? :lol:

Great work fitting the extras in, the amount of info needed on the window these days is huge, almost double vanilla Censusplus, how things change over 10 years lol :)

Why not, just skip 1-19 in the display?
It's nowhere accurate, as /WHO doesn't return any results and MouseOver actually does..

Otherwise, good job... Pretty much as expected, but the screenies show, it's more work than I thought..
Doing census mainly on Draenor; Raluf - Nimsay - Lusmo - Quixx - Sosyan - Garthog - Trubin - Zalistra - Zesmi and Djaang

Sadly it is still more work then I like...
but at least it is now possible unlike the older graphic layout.
that last image where the levels went away.. I had tried to do too many steps at once..
here is the next step.. where levels 1-19 are no longer actually displayed..
the full bars are the normally hidden placeholder images for spacing purposes.. some of you have seen these before.
Image

Next step back to the xml file to hide bars 1-19 by making them 0 width and setting level 20 as the base.. and making sure the rest of the levels work off of level 20 as the reference point.

And the levels 1 thru 19 are gone.. which leaves lots of space for the next (2??) expansion(s)

And then I hit the end of Pre-development.
The addon code and WoW client is very unhappy when non-existent data elements are called.
Image

I had to fake a number of elements not currently in game..
and to get past this, I would have to build a fake Census run database..
to have Demon Hunter entries.
I think I will pause this until we get to Beta...
considering Blizzard will probably change a number of things from there initial release announcement.
