Custom Story Uploader: zip file exceeds maximum size

I'm running into an error uploading the latest version of Random Party to csu.eekllc.com. I've apparently added enough to the story that the zip file now exceeds the maximum allowed size.

Zipped it's 6,051 KB, which doesn't seem all that huge to me, but what do I know...

You are correct. The limit is around 6MB.

OS is around 3.5MB. I'm kinda surprised that this story became so large. :D

Yeah, it's because every girl has to accommodate every possible random personality trait. So they each have more than 200 lines of dialog, many with a dozen or so alternate texts, and like 100 event triggers.

It looks like something that can get very difficult to maintain in the long run.

For example, you find a bug in one logic, and then you need to fix it at 10 places.

It's actually not that hard to maintain. For most changes, I just make edits in CSC to Amy, then run Notepad++ macros to create the other girls' files from Amy's.

But, yeah, if I had to make every bug fix 10 times over I would go insane!

I have been informed that the limit is now a mind-boggling 10MB.

Thanks! My mind is appropriately boggled.

Random Party now exceeds (just barely) the mind-boggling 10MB limit, so I can't update it on the csu site. What are the chances of increasing the limit again?

It's my understanding this was done within the last 24 hours. Try it again.

Peter980 showed me how to adjust my zip settings and squeeze in under 10MB. But if Random Party keeps expanding at this rate, I'll test your limits again soon, CSU!
