Request: Autosaving
« on: November 28, 2008, 01:31:21 pm »
This has come a long way since i tested it, way back. Its real fun and feels genue.


One thing tho that i have alwys been wondering (and especially after it randomly crashs alot for me [Vista 911]) it would be nice to have a autosave feature.


This could probably be really simple implemented, in the options you mark a box where it says "autosafe : ON" and then it calls every x days the procedure it already has for saving and places it in the first, last or a total new save-slot.


In an advanced version it would be nice to be able to configure the autosave command, so you can e.g. specify how often it shall safe (x amounts of days)or if it should safe after you completed a mission or not. Or after research is done.

I think this feature has the potention of taking alot of annoyance assosiated with Bugs that cause crashes out of the game, or at least makes em only little annoying, instead of super annoying, cause you did not safe for a month or so.


hat you guys think ?

The game saves before every mission to the quicksave slot. F2 reloads it AFAIR.
(saving during battle is not an option)
