About the Planetary Annihilation Data Directory

The data directory or folder is separate from your install directory and contains:
  • logs
  • local configuration (localstore)
  • file system mods (client_mods / mods and server_mods)
  • downloads for community mods (download)
The data directory is shared by all installations of Planetary Annihilation:
  • steam
  • launcher
  • stable or PTE streams
Updating or reinstalling PA does not impact the data directory.

By default all installations use the same local configuration. You can override this using the --localstorageurl command line parameter. eg --localstorageurl=localstore-testing
