Factorio now has cloud saves ' YAY!'
Factorio now tells you, you only have 200mb of cloud save space. (I only had 1520mb of saves)

So after some save file (re)moving, my save folder is 99.7mb (inc autosaves 127mb)
Yet it still CAN'T Sync. As it tells me that i still try to save 248mb.
Plus i have checked and the Mods folder is 286mb. So that can't be anywhere related to it.

Where and what is synced to the cloud, what and how much do i need to remove, to get under 200mb.
Will there be a way to Select What savegames to cloudsave. As it now looks like you can only have about 6 saves (plus autosaves) on 200mb.


But i still can't sync even with only a 55mb save folder. keeps bugging about 248mb. what gives?

As you can see It's obvious the cloud will save the whole game folder, not just save folder - nothing seems wrong, that's normal.
Not GOG Galaxy cloud system fault, It's your fault, miss looking!
I filled up the 200MB pretty quickly, I think GOG should consider raising the allocation for Factorio as the save files tend to be quite big and they get bigger the further you travel (the more chunks you generate). A bit like Minecraft in that sense.
Yeah, I'm getting the same problem. It's consistently telling me my saves are 215MB when it was more like 194MB. I deleted a few and tried again and it's still saying I have 215MB. Something isn't working right.

What the bloody hell are you on about?

The saves aren't even in the game folder, they're in User\Appdata\Roaming\Factorio\Save. Even that entire Factorio folder is well below 200MB let alone what it's claiming I have.

Look at the god damn save files and game, as I know, they save all from your game, files and save files, make your calculation in MB size (I mean Eledore).

Eledore show only save, what about the size of installed game.

And as I can see SirPrimalform, you didn't know you can change the save files location inside the installation folder (config-path.cfg) I always change the directory to a partition with bigger space all the time, even so, I never used cloud, because it's too low for our needs for some kind of games, even to other platforms, like Origin and any other that has this kind of cloud.

In terms of cloud, they need to save just the save files, not the whole game and save files (GOG Galaxy), maybe there Is a probleme In client! 248 MB vs 200 MB as you can see, they calculation Is with the game and save files as I told on top.

Verry bad at math m8!

You're barely making sense. And no, I've already checked this with support - Galaxy isn't uploading the game files to the cloud, the only thing it uploads is the save folder. There seems to be a bug where it miscalculates the size, that's all.
