    As someone who started out making Unlimited Adventure modules, I can say the first thing I learned was back it up, back it up, back it up, and did I say back it up? And this was pre common places on the internet to store things, so this meant making many copies on floppies and/or tape drives, or even storing it on 2 - 3 computers if you had that option.

    Love this post. Can't wait for your tutorial. I'm also super interested in this tileset builder you speak of.

    I have so many copies of files that it might have veered over into insanity. But, it has paid off. I still have files that I originally stored on floppy.

    Floppy! You don't hear that word everyday.

    Degica should offer it as an extra feature on top of the editor for $10: never lose your projects again!

    I think steam handles cloud sync'ing already so that probably covers a lot of the user-base lol

    Steam's cloud syncing sucks. I mean really sucks. I've lost more work than I've preserved because it synced old content over new. It's not like I'm changing time zones when I go home from work, Steam. Plus, it will just mindlessly back up a crashed and broken project.

    I keep 2 back ups although it tends to be one more accurate one. Flashdrives are your friend. Also got sites like mediafire and dropbox, no reason not to back up your stuff once and awhile.
