Second Level of expansion

Third level of expansion

Pros to this system (for me):
-easy to navigate for data entry
-easy to mass enter information
-clear delineation of information

Cons:
-relationships can be tedious to work with
-the nested nature of the approach can lead to space issues when trying to link items as there is no left/right scroll bar in the linking dialogue

I'm happy with how it all works. I wish it could just read my brain and connect everything with how I intuitively understand the connections, but we're not quite there yet.
That is what I'm slowly but surely transitioning my main realm to, roughly.

It isn't perfect but it is better than any of the other systems I've tried. One thing it does show is just how weak RW's relationship system is. Another thing I've put on the list to lobby for improvements once the CM is out.
