Save File Location

Hey Folks!

A lot of people have asked where the save files are located, so I thought I'd pin a topic for anyone else who might be wondering.

Save files are in your AppData folder:

C:\Users\<username>\AppData\LocalLow\Blue Bottle Games\Ostranauts\

where <username> is your Windows username.

There is a folder for each save slot, and inside each folder there are a handful of files:

saveInfo.json - preview info for the save
portrait.png - the preview portrait for that save
<captain>.json - the current save file for <captain>
<captain>.bak - backup of previous save file
<captain>_1...9.bak - older backups of save file

If you are going to share a save, only the first three files are necessary (2 json and 1 png). And zipping them makes them much smaller.

Hope this helps!
