What exactly do you mean with “In game factory names”? Names of train stops? Assemblies? Roboports? …

P.S. The file names cannot use emoji’s, they are bound to the underlying file system, which should provide a compatibility layer between operating systems.
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.

I mean things like parentheses and underscores. (), _,

Things like that. I assume its because the game save name is used as the file name. I know I cant use parentheses and underscores in filenames. So I assume thats what is causing the limitation.

Thank you for taking the time out of your day to respond :)
