    Size of 2.3 update anyone? Gary?

    How big will it be? Do I have to make room?

    The beta is around 9.5 gig... judging by past updates, I suspect it'll be around the same size.

    The update won't increase the size of ED that much... you'll probably find that after the update, the game will take up not much more HD space than it already does...

    OH, I totally misunderstood 9.5 number then, that makes sense. Thanks!

    Yeah, game will probably just redownload most of its actual size, plus some extras of course

    Dunno how much it weights right now, but I doubt it'll increase in size for more than one gig or two, maybe three, the biggest offender likely being the avatar editor stuff.

    So what you're saying is....that we possibly might need 9.5 gigs available temporarily. But once the update is installed there may only be a small increase in the actual game file size (for example let's say an additional gig over the current ED game file size). However, we won't know for sure until the update goes live or someone from FDev chimes in (which probably won't happen until a day or two before the it gets released).

    I'm only going on the PC beta 2.3 download...but on average on the Xbox, my ED file size didn't change too much after all the updates. I'm not too constricted for space on the Xbox either though since I have a 2TB external hybrid drive fitted.

    I doubt you'll need 9gigs on top of the current install. Xbox installs/patches as it downloads, so the game size will increase as it gets patched but it shouldn't need that much additional space to work.

    That being said you should really consider doing some cleanup or installing an external HDD if you have less than 10 gigs available.

    If you already have the current version installed, the Xbox update is estimated to be ~6Gb, with an estimated file size increase of ~3Gb.

    Hey dude, I know you're on the console side of the team, but do you think you know how big the PC client update will be?
