General development questions

I named this thread like that because I don’t know if it deserves a new thread. Let me know if I should change something :+1:

I wanted to try to implement filters for save manager (for regular saves, autosaves and quicksaves) and couldn’t find a way to get the save type of each save in list. Should I dive deeper into the more hard coded things or just not continue the work?

Also how should I name the regular saves filter? Right now I made placeholder “regular” but I think it needs a better name.

The special save types (versus manual, this term is already displayed to the user in the save load menu) are determined based on the filename. It’s detected with a regex here:

The actual save type is stored inside the file in the save info section JSON. That variable is of type SaveType.SaveInformation

Ok so I kinda got stuck when it comes to refreshing save list with showing only specified type saves, but you don’t need to help me unless you want to.


I kinda got it working, but I have feeling the code is kinda messy. I’ll show it here anyways.

(I’ll change regular button text to manual)

(It is working with other filters aswell)

If someone want to volunteer, you can help with:

  • Make cell chunks emit more compounds (related to combat and scavenging balancing)
  • General combat balancing
  • Potential knockback for offensive pili (this item can probably be removed with the cooldown being added now)

and maybe

from the Roadmap.

Something like:

floating organelles should release more compounds


smaller microbes should be slower

something like that - not a list of new features or something but more like just tweaks.
