  • ARK's filesystem is atrocious and a fix is long overdue | 2021-09-04
    Most of the files are uncompressed. If you compress them yourself with a program like windows' compact.exe using CompactGUI, you can get ~50% storage savings (but steam will redownload affected files any time it tries to verify files, like after an update). If you try this with other games, the results are almost always much lower (Arma 3 has ~12% savings, Marvel's Avengers has 0%, Call of Duty Modern Warfare is ~6%). The performance and loading impact of doing so is minimal, and may even improve performance for older games as smaller files will load into RAM faster.
  • Ark installation size? | 2021-08-31
    Ark's use of Unreal engine libraries is notoriously bad. You can use CompactGUI to reduce the size significantly without much impact on performance:

  • The "Size on Disk" shelf filter for display in the Steam library doesn`t actually display the games listed according to their actual size on disk but rather their whole size in actual. | 2021-08-15
    Here’s a great tool in case you want to use it yourself.
  • Is there a way to compress the 71 GB assets folder?
    You may get some easy compression done using the Windows filesystem compression tools (e.g. use CompactGUI), but don't expect too much. The larger files are most likely already compressed (textures, sounds, etc) and you won't gain much by compressing them again.

  • Why does SE gobble up so much disk space?
    Pretty much. I used to use CompactGUI but it has serious unresolved performance issues which made it unsuitable for larger trees of files. I was having fun with Rust over on FreeBSD and thought I'd give some Windows programming a try for a change.
  • A wish for the next Tekken game: Make the game less than 20GB, like Tekken 7 should be. | 2021-04-17
    If you use this You should be able to get it down to ~35 or less.
