5 gb for 1 save? That must be a typo.

I've just spied their saving code... And here it is:-





Easy as that!

Seriously though, if the game does required all that for a save, I bet writing the save and load routines was a pretty epic affair!

Kinda ironic, though, that a badly coded random generator that creates nothing but garbage for a nonsensical save file is STILL over 1000 times smaller than whatever the hell they've saved!

Surely all you've got to save in a game like that is a few statistics? I can't even think of any game where 5GB per save file would be justfied.

Maybe it is so, that a savefile can hold maximal 5gb. - because replay-data are saved with that savefile too ?? who knows lol

Another way to look at it is times that by 75 and you have all the data collected by Cassini and that thing has been switched on for 20 years nearly!

5GB. That's 30,840 c1541 formatted floppy disks.
