Hi there! I have come across a problem with uploading mods.

When I try to upload any of my mods, it shows following error:

connected
ready
uploading jetpack.rar, 0.0MB of 0.1MB (0%)
uploading jetpack.rar, 0.1MB of 0.1MB (100%)
internal error: 5bef1536-c610-46a4-99f3-38583d046dba

Number and letters varies from mod to mod.
The mod is version 1.1.0 and I am using factorio 1.1.32 from the server list. I even tried to change the mode reqiurements to 1.1.32, still doesn´t work.

Thank you for the help.

You are trying to upload .rar files, but mods should be uploaded as .zip files for Factorio.

Hello, I have come across a little issue. The save file must be smaller than 96 MB, but mine is about 180 MB.

I am currently playing space exploration mod and I trimmed all surfaces where possible and I am still not under 150 MB.

Could you enlarge it a bit or help me in another way?

Thanks a lot. Your work is greatly appreciated.

Sorry, I won't be raising the save file limit. Maps that big require too much server memory to run this as a free service.

LD_PRELOAD mimalloc. i have a thread on it somewhere here. it will use 25% of the memory as before, and up to 50% less cpu.

That might help and I might add support for it. But it's unlikely to help enough for a 150MB map.

that's true! if anything i would keep the limits the same and just take advantage of the fact that you'll have more CPU time to share for more maps to run at once.

OP should instead go through their bases and actually eliminate more surfaces, walls, tiles, turrets, electric poles - things that all contribute to the save file size. or just start a new map. it's also fun.

The mod, Space Exploration uses much much memory and makes big save data.
Whether or not to allow it will depend on the server administrator's policy.

When I won the game, memory usage was about 3.5GB, save data was 200MB.
Sure, I trimmed and deleted map data as much as possible.

And, there is an issue that uses much memory... about 3 times ( about 11GB ) when I update base/mods version then initial converting the map.
I reported to Earendel on discord about the issue in April.
I don't know if the issue will be fixed.
