    Hello,

    My map is getting about 20 mb now, does somebody know what is the maximum map size?
    I don't want to finish my map in 2 months and see that it isn't working because of the map size :)

    20. Where did you get 120 from? If you add ALL your published maps together, they can't exceed 105mb.

    Have you imported a lot of stuff into the map? (20 mb is pretty much)

    Use the overview window to see what parts are taking up space. You should take a screenshot of it and link it here.

    20 mb of terrain? o.o
    Are you sure about that?
    That's would be pretty much every inch of a max sized map covered with doodads?

    haha not that all but I got kinda solution:

    about 40% of the map was unused so I deleted it
    I created the map over with 164x164 but I still got about 10mb to terrain now
    Yes I placed a lot of doodads but it's not nearly the whole map, I guess it's about 10% map

    Is 10MB the compressed or uncompressed file size?

    Well for some reason it has changed to 5mb and ONLY 6kb when compressed

    that is a HUGE diffirence, how can I get it compressed?

    When your map is saved, the terrain will be automatically compressed down to 6kB and saved into your file. When you load a game, the Terrain data is uncompressed to 5MB.

    6kB is very small. That is equivalent to a medium sized map with absolutely nothing placed. Did you have a blank map open when you looked at those sizes?

    is this compressed or uncompressed?

    It is the size of the map file, so it is compressed.

    And the maximum upload size is still 105 MB, not 120 MB.

    Also, open the overview manager(F12) and press Triggers in the components list. Take a screenshot and post it here.

    Here's Cruiser Command's overview as an example:
