I’ve been looking into the Section Added in the save file for SeasonalGameMode_Data, I believe it was added with Desolation, and assumed it had something to do with Freighter missions added, but the name made me curious as SEAN seems to refer to the missions as seasons.
So looking at the MBIN structure & Save JSON closer, it appears to contain a start and end time, a title etc. Has a value indicating if your ship starts damaged etc…so I pulled apart the default.mbin… not much in clues as they are just place holder descriptions.
<Title_Localized>// CRIMINAL // STARSHIPS // CONTRABAND //</Title_Localized>
<Subtitle_Localized>Tag all ships</Subtitle_Localized>
<Description_localized>POLLUTED BY CRIMES, AND TORN BY THE BITTEREST !NEWLINE!REMORSE, WHERE CAN I FIND REST BUT IN DEATH?</Description_localized>
It might just be away to store the current multiplayer mission data. It also seems to flag a game mode (ala Normal, Survival, Creative etc) but as Seasonal… I don’t know if the weekend missions etc also trigger this special mode…but it seems unlikley. Im starting to wonder if this is actually a new mode of play or if it just flags multiplayer. Anyone else look into this?
