Is it possible to edit the .SAV files?

Let's say you're many turns deep into the game and you want to change the research and economic efficiencies.

Is it possible to edit the .SAV file directly to modify these settings?

There's only a handful of people with any substantial modding knowledge still around the boards on any regular basis. If you haven't gotten an answer, it's likely that nobody who's visited the boards lately has tried and/or knows the answer.

Note that as a point of etiquette, it's better to keep modding-related questions in the modding sub forums.

point noted, sorry, didn't consider this a modding question, cos its just to update settings set during the beginning setup
