Experiment idea:

Copy and paste your assets over and over again in a test folder, and then pack it. I'm wondering if there is a hard limit within the level packer.

Otherwise you have a soft limit of what people are willing to download.

The Steam Workshop itself has a 50MB file size limit I believe. Where are you seeing that you are taking up 200MB? Is this before or after you compile it into a .hwm?

A thing to note is that sound and music tend to take up the most space after it's compiled. Levels and .xmls and such become almost nothing.

I haven't compiled it yet, that's just the size of the folder but when i first released it, it was over 62mb (i think) so i'm guessing that why i cant upload it to steam, glad i could solve that problem 3 months later lol

Ah yeah. I had to lower the quality of my sound and music quite a bit in order to fit it for RW act 1. It's 47MB
