Single Player Save/Load first pass!

28 likes

Hey all! Over the last month, we’ve been pushing on getting save/load working in the single player side of PA. We’ve also done tons of balance tweaks based on feedback and our balance folks watching replays and streams, added 2 new maps (1 for ranked play and 1 for general play), did some fairly big performance improvements for large army fights, and hit as many bugs and polish items as we could. 

 This is the first pass of our save/load work, so you’ll see it missing items we want in the final. That being said, we are currently working on those elementsl, but since this version was working, we wanted to go ahead and get it out so you could use it. I’ve explained what is in this version below (single player AI skirmish saving), as well as what we hope to get in next (galactic war mid game saving and resume from anywhere in a replay loading). Take a look, and if you want to join the conversation, or run into any issues, join us over on the Uber forums!

      Thanks for the update, guys! I can only imagine how troublesome it must be to track every building and unit in these rather large games, and I appreciate the effort in giving us this function.

      "resume from anywhere in a replay loading"
      This is exciting! Assuming I understand it correctly, questionable grammar aside =P This is something I was thinking about but figured it was just a pipe dream. Glad you're actually planning on it!
