Question about module file size

Postby Gazebo » May 16th, 2011, 5:48 pm

Hey all,

This might be a rather amateurish question, however is it possible to reduce the size of a module I am working on by 'purging' unused/outdated files from the compressed .vmod folder? Ultimately, I've been testing and tweaking cards in the game I am working on, adding and replacing cards as necessary. This has ballooned the size of my mod, making it a whopping 23MB even though it only includes a few 100 card decks and one small board. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks!

Yes. A detailed set of instructions can be found here.

The instructions are centered on using the Mac zip utility, but should work for any zip utility on any platform.

You can do this, but be careful that you don't remove anything which
is still in use.
