1.1GB for a single value change from 0 to 8? Really!?

Question

[update 6: 10/27] Last Beta update;

- Kraken DR is set to 8 from 0

 

Really, 1.1 Gigabytes for this singular value change? How the **** do you package your game data to make a change that is less than 1 Kilobyte in size, require replacing 1.1 Gigabytes of content? I've opted out of the beta (game remains installed) seeing as you're never ever going to address the way you handle updates.

Well, 3.04 is likely going to be the very last patch for PoE anyway so once you have it, that's it in terms of downloading updates.

No, he meant a single update inside the beta, not the whole beta patch itself (I guess).

It is the way unity packages files. In order to make any amount of changes we have to check out and replace a large portion of the game data. The patch is not adding 1 GB to your game data, it is updating 1 GB of game data. If that makes sense.

I am aware of this. Note I opted out of the beta, that doesn't mean I deleted the game.
