Be honest. How many times has Autosave screwed you over?

So, I'm casually working on car body, and my Algodoo crashes. And, when I reboot, all my textures are gone and my car looks like a pile of crap.

How many times has autosave done a horrible thing to your creation in Algodoo? :lol: :evil:

Protip: Save often. Save versioned.

+

a versioning storage system such as google drive = Win


Move your algodoo folder (or just the scenes folder) into google drive, symlink the folder back to its original location and BAM, it should work fine (applications should handle symlinks without any issues, *should*, I come from the *nix world where it's fine and so as long as WIndows does it properly it should be fine)

Happened to me back then, but what's weird is that I'm not facing this issue anymore. Dunno why :roll:
