sort save files by factory

Post by Mendel » Wed Sep 21, 2016 6:46 pm

after joining a few different multiplayer factories, saving many times with custom names and having a real large amount of autosaves... it would be nice to be able to sort save files by factory so that I could easily find newest save file of a specific factory.
Now if I dont happen to remember what name I saved my personal factory by a few days ago... and after having joined several multiplayer factories... its kind of hard to find where I was in my single player game and to continue from there. :oops:

Maybe the game could help me more with this?

I´d like to add that it is not necessary for this to affect the save file name itself in any way.

The save file could have the name of the factory as a property of the save (in the same way as play time is saved for example, not in the save file name but in the save none the less)

Alternative approach would be to folderize the saves. Each factory would get its own folder and the saves would be saved to its own folder, making saves easier to browse when there are hundreds of savefiles.

Turns out folders are already supported! Just need to create them manually :o
