I mentioned a new savegame format a few times. I have now written an overview of what it's all about for people who wants to read more about it. https://github.com/We-the-People-civ4col-mod/Mod/wiki/Savegame-format I will say again if you would be interested in joining the team and do some programming, this is a great way to start. You get to see the different parts of the code, the task doesn't depend highly on knowledge of the code and there are tasks for people of all skill levels. It's not that this won't be done without more people working on this, but the more people we have, the fast it will be. The 2.8 release will not happen until all the savegame code has been converted. If you have any questions or comments, then this is a thread dedicated to the savegame format, so post away.
