You know, I have no idea how feasible this is...
But would it be possible to add some way to delete turns from Tracker? There comes a point when it just takes way too long to load, and you just don't need every turn from 5 months ago, but would still like to have some kind of long term record, especially as Japan for resource and supply levels. For example, my Scen 2 IJN game is on turn 260, with nearly every turn from 75 loaded in (so ~200 turns). The DB is huge, and java.exe eats up almost 700MB of RAM while it's running.
It would be great to be able to remove 90% of the turns (all but the 1st/15th of each month, for example) manually, without having to delete the entire DB and start fresh.
I keep a separate folder for this purpose. I only load the 1st and 15th day of each month so that over time I can see the long term trend. My main tracker file can be reset every 100 or so turns once it starts to get too long to load.
Yeah, I've thought of this work-around, but I haven't actually done it yet. I guess I will, though it means keeping two trackers for one game which seems a bit silly. I was just wondering if this was a potential future feature, because it would be extremely useful.
