Where are the files?
« on: September 04, 2019, 05:04 AM »
I'm about ready to fire up my new desktop PC build, but I want to back up all my PlanCo files, and I can't find them anywhere. All I have is all my user files for video and billboards.

Where are:
Park files
Downloaded TMTK files
Downloaded Blueprint files

I'm about to lose my mind looking for these.

They're stored in the cloud, there's a video on youtube I found (I forget what it was if you Google it you'll find it) but you backup PlanCo through steam on to an external hard drive then restore the game on your new PC. All game saves are in cloud so as long as you back up to the harddrive the game saves and DLC will come with it when you restore on your new PC. It's very simple, but may take a while to restore just be forewarned.

The park and blueprint files are stored in Users/(your name)/Saved Games/Frontier Developments/Planet Coaster/(a long number).
I'm not sure if the TMTK items are stored locally, as I've never found them.

Yeah, on the cloud via Steam, but some local files are here:

C:/Users/[YourUserName]/Saved Games/Frontier Developments/Planet Coaster
C:/Users/[YourUserName]/Documents/Frontier Developments/Planet Coaster

THX guys - I will back up what I can. I plan on making the cut over this weekend and hope not to lose everything I have done so far. Fingers crossed.
