Na, i don't like that Idea pretty much, this games lives from failure and unbalance. And i've your knowing your making a risky decision you can still save on your own. But ive you automatically could solve every Problem with loading an recent save, it's destroyinga big Part of the "Problem Solving"-Nature of the Game, i think.

I like how in vally 2 I can just quit the game when I'm done playing and it saves for me. It's not about having the ability to save scum (which you have anyway), its about simple convenience.

My first note in here was to ask for an autosave option. As it is created, I'll add my two cents:
Give to the player an option for enable autosave, and how many turns (from none, for the IronMan style player, to ...let's say 3 turns).
This way should be good for everyone, developers included, as many more saves will be available with potential bugs.

I will confess I use autosaves in some games, but not yet in SC (a few games yet) as the chaotic nature of this game makes me feel useless to have to reload a game, and I haven't done yet, only to continue the current game.

But on the same reason, i think i would hate losing my game for a problem like battery, lights-off or whatever...a potential I'm currently saving only each 10-20 turns, or when I remmeber to do so.

And if a player wants to reload 1000 times, because he has fan doing so, he will do it anyway withouth autosaves then why not give that option, and keep things easier?

Thanks for this incredible game
