Forums: Index > Playing Freeciv > I'm looking for the current FreeCiv .sav file format spec

Where is the .sav file format documented?

There's no description of the save file format other than the source code that reads and writes it. See server/savegame2.c for the current format, server/savegame.c for the old format (only supported for backward compatibility). -- JTN (talk) 18:39, August 27, 2013 (UTC)

Also, does FreeCiv still have a map editor built in, if so how do we run it?  Remember CivWorld map editor, did it die or evolve?

Yes, there's a map editor built in to the Gtk client since 2.2. Edit > Editing Mode from the menus, or Ctrl+E. Documentation is a bit lacking; Editor may give you some clues (but isn't completely in sync with reality). -- JTN (talk) 18:39, August 27, 2013 (UTC)
