First off, this is beautifull. I spent about 10 hours last night to play and research and build and colonize... nice
But a thing is, this game REALLY is feeding on the hard drive. When i ended my unplanned gaming session early this morning to go to work, i got the Windows-message about low disk space on c:\ - the explanation was found quickly. Freeorion had made several GB of autosaves, AI_x.log, freeorion.log and freeoriond.log... Of course, the logfiles got deleted after creating a new game, but those 2k autosaves... um... not.
So, my suggestion:
- how about an option to save only so many autosaves, or to hardcode that instead of an option?
- are logfiles limited in size in any way? At least i can't imagine to upload a logfile of several hundred mb if something crashed...
That's just my cents
oh, im on an XP mashine, in case thats of interest.
