Following their announcement and roadmap earlier today, Uber have released PTE 78679 with a first pass saving feature. It’s skirmish only right now, but it’s the beginning of something beautiful. Of course, this isn’t the only thing to change, there are further balance tweaks and AI improvements.

PTE feedback should go in this thread, meanwhile any feedback on the save/load feature should go in this one.

  • Save/Load now works with local AI Free For All skirmish
    • Currently it will not remember alliances
  • Save/Load currently does not function for Galactic War
  • Save/Load currently does not work on PlayFab games
  • Spectating won’t work after you lose a loaded game
  • The sim will freeze while saving. This could take shorter or longer depending on amount of stuff being saved
  • After loading a game, Surrender does not work, you will need to delete your commander to quit the game back to main menu.
  • You can also view save files as a replay
