Please Make a Way to Download GC Data to a File

I realize that I can back up my game, but sometimes this is not enough. It's entirely possible that any update to Unity or GC will erase all of my Actions, Variables, Dialogues, and other meticulously crafted GC data. It would be such a relief to know that there's an option of upload saved GC data onto a project and get all the settings back. I don't know if this is possible, but please consider it if it is.

Unity version:
Game Creator version:

Unfortunately this is not possible. All the data that is stored in the Project is saved under the Plugins/GameCreatorData/ folder. When you open the Module Manager and click on the Backup button, it simply copies all the content from that folder onto a special one at the root of your project called Backups/.

However, Game Creator also uses scene data, and as any other Unity component, this data is stored inside each scene.

If the problem is backing up your project, I would consider using a tool such as Git. It's powerful, free and there are many services that offer storing your data for free. We use GitLab for Game Creator, for example, but you can also try GitHub.
