Idea: Name saved games.

Recommended Posts

The date and timestamp naming of load files isn't very helpful for finding a certain game. Games don't seem to be in the same "slot" but rather jump around as last loaded changes. Makes it hard to keep separate games, for example your multiplayer planet, or the one whit the really neat base etc.

 

Suggestion. When a player creates a new game ask them to name the drop pod. ex: "Galileo".  That Pod will have the name printed on it. When the player comes back to load and play, the pod Galileo will be there and will load the last saved game just like it does now. The first line text would be the pod name (since the printing on the pod would be rather small) and the date/time moved onto the next line or removed. A new icon beneath the  load icon looks like a folder, and allows you to load the last X saved files for that pod. Each pod would have it's own file in the savegame folder and it's own save history would be kept separate from other pod save files.

Good idea and improvement.  It's like giving them mission names.  It actually adds to the fun of the game right from the get-go.

 

Now if we can only name our Astroneers 🙂 ...

Nice, I like the Astroneer names. It would make loosing one much more poignant.

Better saves management is certainly on the agenda, but they haven't said what shape it'll take or when it'll come!

I’ve been pushing for this for soooo long. +1

also, the names astroneer is a cool prospect, though It isn’t necessary like the named saves
