I thought "importable projects" was supposed to cover this (mostly), but that's not on the roadmap as far as I can tell...

Although, if you're creating a large project, you're going to want/need backups - and I don't see any easy way to do that without saving it locally. e.g. accidentally delete a map, and there is no way to recover it etc.

For that reason, I do think the developers should seriously consider how to allow a player to save content to their PC, and from that potentially allow them a local 'archive' of editor content? (the savefile should contain the editor settings to create the object, not the object itself - thereby making it useless to hack).


I do like the list of upcoming features though - lots of fun to be had there!
