I would say yes, that is a lot. When you open up to choose what object you want, does your list just go past the monitor's length because there are so many? If so you should add groups to organize it.

You might want to organize those objects as best you can. To do so, right click a blank area in the item tree, then select create group, then name the group and drag objects into the folder. Now, when the list of the objects in your world pops up, the folder's name will show up, allowing you to click on it to access those objects as options, This means the list won't go off the screen anymore, and the item tree will shrink to a much more manageable size (though dragging them can be slow, in my opinion it's worth it). One tip though, start with the objects at the bottom, so you can drag them easily to where the new folder is created.

Really? Good job! Now the second thing you need to do to try and push the limit is make sure that any items that are offscreen are not showing (isShowing = false) to speed up processing power (this is while your world is playing, not while you're editing it).

I don't think this will help with your save issue though, this is only if there is lag during your game. It also does not lower file size, if anything it ads file size because it involves more coding (I think, I have never done it).

By the way x2495iiii, how do you do the code to make items disappear when the camera is not looking at them?
