Musings on my entry.

For my entry the level was stored in RAM as an array of characters, and each character held 8 blocks, which means that each block only took 1-bit (on or off). So theoretically a level 1000 x 1000 would take 125 kilobytes, a 10,000 x 10,000 level would take 12.5 megabytes in RAM.

Ofcourse, saved as a text file that’s easy to edit in notepad, the same file would take over 8 times as much space.
