Fmod log file bloat

  • Fixed

After 15 hours of gamelplay and 3-4 colonies my fmod.log file is already 650mb. Maybe there is some limit, but even 650mb for a log file is a lot. Or maybe there is a limit, but it's not working atm

Steps to Reproduce
15 hours of gameplay

650mb is probably too large to upload. Is it the same message that keeps repeating?

Weird. I started new game, then loaded the old game - did all kinds of stuff - and now fmod.log is nice 79mb. Sorry, but I can't tell when it got replaced.

Maybe the reason for bloat was long game session - if I recall correctly - I played for quite some time without exiting the game. Probably 4-5 hours

Having the same issue.. ran out of diskspace on my laptop, and thought WTF?? realised the fmod-log in the game-folder was 5gb...

Today's hotfix disables the fmod log in release builds. Thanks for reporting this. Sorry about the trouble!
