Moving saved cars

Ok, I have a question that some may find inappropriate... But from the beginning. I've played the demo, and really liked it - enough to want to buy a full game. But, back then I couldn't do it - no cash. And since sometimes I'm very impatient - I admit it - pirated the game. I knew it won't last long, as a month or two later I'd be able to buy the game, but, you know, impatiency. I've created quite a lot of cars, and now, since I've finally bought the game (totally worth it), I want to move these cars to the original version and delete the pirated one. But, there are two problems - one is that I have no idea where the save files are, and (I don't know if it matters) the pirated copy is an old version, 150315. Could anyone help me? Yeah, I know, I'm filthy impatient bastard, but... please.

Re: Moving saved cars

Thanks for deciding to purchase Automation! We kinda need people to do that to afford to keep making it ;)


Won't work moving the saves as that's a very old version and a lot has changed since then, so saves that old won't work.

I'd be interested to know where you got the pirated version though :P

Re: Moving saved cars

I don't remember now, but maybe I'll be able to find that :)
A pity that they can't be moved :( But still I can recreate them in the end. Required bodies didn't disappear.
Yet still I'd like to know where my saves are (in current version) for backup purposes.

And you don't need to thank me - rather I should thank you for a great game :) And I couldn't do other way, as I'm going to be game developer in near future too :)

Re: Moving saved cars

Your saves should be in Documents\Automation or in Documents\My Games\Automation
