TB: Oh, literally a manual download through a link? Got it...that would be the fallback solution.

On a related note, I was looking around for some native, no-install download-to-file solutions for Windows, and apparently there is something called "Windows Script Host"; it appears to be a runtime script interpreter that is pre-installed onto Windows. In fact, here's a tiny snippet that supposedly implements something like wget using jscript + the cscript host: https://gist.github.com/duncansmart/5821523 if anyone's interested in trying it out. Might be useful for creating a good clickable shortcut for downloading the XML file directly to the wildstar add-on directory.

Also, this process could be used for the housing directory as well. In fact, I could combine the addons into one.

The downside is you'd lose the pictures of plots. In all honesty, those are a pain to deal with. It takes more work to do those than pull the new database and fix it.

Personally I wouldn't be too broken-up about losing the pictures. That way, every listing would be on equal footing media-wise. It's pretty easy to visit the plots in person!

It also reduces file size for the DL without pictures.

People always have the option of including a tiny URL to a picture, perhaps make sure there is a way to copy and paste in game so people can visit to pics? That way no worries about the pics being in profiles and same with housing directory too.
