Help: Database Bloat

Database bloat is a term used to describe the accumulation of unnecessary objects in the game. Star Conquest's database is always loaded into active memory as a basic characteristic of the platform it runs on, and therefore a large database has serious implications for stability and performance.

We understand that it's natural for humans to want to acquire and accumulate many things, and far less natural for them to want to sort through and throw out old things later. However, this tendency leads to a gradual expansion of the number of things in the database.

In order to see your personal database footprint, type INFO. It appears near the top. You will be told the number of items personally owned by you and approximately where they are found. Your bloat will then be given a rating. For more specific information about where your items are hanging out, try the FOOTPRINT command.

There are a number of ways you can help us to manage database bloat:
