Forge users who enable the Game Manager feature, and have access to our Save Points (a World Builder exclusive feature) can enable Game Autosaves. This ensures your games are saved automatically, whenever you play!
When Game Autosaves are enabled, we will automatically create a new Save Point for each world/game whenever the world is idled for longer than a hour, or outright stopped. This ensures that your world data remains safe, without creating an unnecessary save point during world restarts, or other short interruptions.
Unlike manual save points, which are never deleted, Save Points created by our Game Autosaves feature are sometimes deleted. The Forge will only retain the last 200 autosaves created for a world, as well as at least one game autosave for each month in the last two years- in addition to any world saves created by our automatic backups. In other words, more than enough to retrieve data for even the longest running campaigns!
