Compress the Save File


Info
Save files are a good candidate for compression on disk, I am getting 11MB save file, but zip compressed a little under 3.

With today's drive space, 11MB is kind of not a big deal in my opinion. Now this might be a problem if this were the 90's.

True but smaller files to share = lower download times in the future when we are dick waving with our sweet Dwelver map accomplishments.

Not to mention smaller uploads when we're sending Rasmus a buggy save file for him to track down the bug and fix it.

If the workload is not too big for this modification, why not. Good idea but not a high priority.

The reason for the large file size is because I have made the savegame files compatible for upgrades. Like being able to add things into them without the game crashes. But sure, the save games could still be compressed a lot, but as TopperHarley said, I don't feel like this is a high priority right now. But I will probably tend to it in the future Smile
