  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.

Would the 281990 be different for any reason? That folder doesn't exist under userdata for me. I can find folders by that name in Workshop and shadercache.

Edit:

Found them all in %USERPROFILE%\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Stellaris\save games\$EMPIRENAME+ID\ folder as suggested by 72 61 6E 64 6F 6D

Any idea where they're saved on Linux? I've found the normal saves, but not the cloud saves?
