Thread: Cloud saves

  1. #1

    Cloud saves

    I'm sorry if this has been said already somewhere, but I can't find it.
    Since EU4 uses Steam, will it have could saves ? It would be great if it had, synchronizing saves between many computers is a real pain in the... bun.

    This would be good, bun only if it remains optional. Paradox's Save Files tend to be gigantic because of all of the data they need to keep track of, and I have had quite enough of SR3's Limited Save Slots, because it's not like I have 2+ Terabytes of Free space or anything.

    NOTE: Your Definition of 'soon' Might differ from Mine.

    Paradox's save files are also text files which can compressed extremely well though it obviously would increase bit of overheard due extra CPU processing required. Eg. my 37,6 MB Victoria 2 (PDM) save compresses to 6 275 KB ZIP-file (~5-6 seconds) or to 4 639 KB 7z-file (~6-7 seconds). Obviously slower computers will require more time to compress the file so I wouldn't want autosaves or non-cloud saves to be compressed. Extracting files is much faster and takes second or two at most.

    Did you guys implement some sort of save-game compression in EU4?
