Has anyone tested Fantasia Archive? It's free, open source and in active development, so a lot of plus points here. Not quite sure about how the features (and the roadmap) compare to RW.

Hey, good find! Fantasia Archive seems like a viable alternative to RW (unless the RW team can get their act together). Also, check out Campfire Pro and Campfire Blaze.

Looks interesting. I've got SO much time and effort invested in RealmWorks, though… And I just keep on putting more in, too.

We bear the same curse :)

Same here.

Heh, yeah. My choice to jump is also made difficult by the fact that I backed the Kickstarter at the level for "top-tier" server access for life. Turns out that "tiers" aren't really a thing in this case. At least I'll never have to pay any extra for server access, so I'm good until they shut down the servers. Which, with HLO being their flagship product now, won't be until they go out of business and close the doors. Probably. Small blessings, right? Gotta look for 'em.

Because if I can't automate that to at least some extent, I'm not using the tool. Right now I'm toying with the idea of just shoving everything into Foundry VTT. I'd lose some functionality like plots, relationships and my hirarchical order, but it might be worth a try.
Foundry has an open API and is written in Javascript while Realm Works allows a XML output. It should be possible to write an RWImport module for Foundry without 'too' much effort - take content from certain tags and put it into certain js object properties - but I've been using Foundry for a week now, so me writing a module for it is nothing that will happen short term. Mid-term I might think about it if no one else is doing it.

At a very early stage for getting your requested RWoutput details into Foundry for running online. This is a module that runs inside Foundry and requires you to copy and paste the RWoutput file into a window, so not the perfect solution yet for big files:

That's fantastic, Farling! I recently bought Foundry - my first VTT program - and I'm just learning how to use it...

Wow! You're a saint! Will test this the coming week - already stoked!

Is there a recommended size limit? My realm is well beyond the 1GB mark as an export file - is that feasible or should I break it down in chunks?

You should create an RWoutput file, not an RWexport file, for use with this tool. It might be smaller.

You might also want to break up your large realm. At the moment, each time you use the tool to perform an import, the data is going into a single compendium within Foundry. So to get data into separate compendiums, you can use separate outputs from RW and imports into Foundry.

Very interesting and it's hitting the right notes with me. I've got it installed but not yet started doing any data entry.

Doesn't look like they are seeking to make automatic linking which I still feel is one of the most important features of RW. It's also missing map functionality currently so not ready to be used as a replacement.

It's open source though... there's some real potential here.
