Suggest changing save game location

Postby AnimateDream » Thu Sep 28, 2017 3:45 pm

I love Slime Rancher, and I really only have one big suggestion. Not only is locallow kind of tricky to find for the computer illiterate, but it's really for system specific data, not for the kind of data you might want to back up and definitely not to sync across devices. I would strongly suggest saves in the future use "%userprofile%\documents\My Games"

I think this is low hanging fruit for the next version of Slime Rancher. Do you all agree?

I don't get what your talking about.

Please elaborate.

This is a pretty good point; as it is, save games are likely to be lost if you backup your user folder in preparation for moving to a different computer. Not everyone uses Steam's cloud sync.

Maybe Calydor summed it up better. Right now the game saves go to a folder intended for temporary application data that no one really backs up. If you haven't heard of the locallow folder you're not alone. That's part of the problem. But if I said the My Documents folder you probably know what I mean.
