Need save file format

Post by SavageV » Sat Mar 18, 2017 3:41 pm

I can parse the save file format, but lack much understanding of what it means. Name/value pairs (NVP) are easy to find but each requires manual inspection to even understand the value, especially with padding. Assembling NVPs into a hierarchical structure is not something I want to spend my time on. A huge number of NVPs have stub names (literally a period).

I do know some parts of the format, which is how I wrote the save game editor years ago, but there's so much more. Tech trees, diplomatic status, fleets, ship designs. Who knows what else.

Does anyone know the higher level details of the save format?
