In a map I'm developing, I intend on creating a system where you can save and load settings by generating and entering a code. Currently I have digit for each individual setting, but ultimately this could generate a number of up to 144 digits (or 144 individual settings).

Nobody wants to input 144 numbers to get their specific settings, they'd probably be better off setting them by the normal menu.

Essentially, I need a more efficient system.



None.

Hmm. If each value has a (reasonable) max, you could use binary... store it in as few bits as possible. Also, using a higher base than 10 should help. Hex should be nice (especially when working with binary) because binary math systems could easily convert it.

Here is a handly little table for how many bits you'd need for a given value (I'm bored. :P)

With what we were discussing I got it to fit into 15 characters.
