I just had a look and mine is nearly 6.

No, not that, I mean my FB folder - 6GBs. That's with everything up to 4.05m and as many campaigns (installs only, the zips are elsewhere) as I can get my hands on.

However, when I open the folder my poor old PC needs to chunder a while before I can look around inside. Got me thinking is this anything of an issue in game if things need to be accessed, or is it just going to make for slow startups? I'm sure I could do a bit of spring/summer cleaning...

Probably a silly question http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Let's see, mine is... ummm... still calculating....................... only 4.43GB, but then I'm a Pacific flyer, so there just ain't that much to add to my folder.

5.04 here

but it's not only the size that matters, it's the technique, how good you can handle it and that it goes smoothly.

15.9!

But then again, I have lots of skin templates stashed in that folder. No idea how to twist that with innuendo, though.

Wow Monty, that's a monster!

Thanks guys, looks like I'm about average then http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

So do you think it makes a jot of difference in-game or just during load-up (or even not at all and I should shut up)?
