Saves can be uploaded to be shared with others or as a backup
Uploaded saves receive enhancements automatically as PDX Tools is updated
PDX Tools can convert (aka melt) ironman and binary saves into normal saves so that one can easily inspect the raw contents
As a bonus the newly converted save can be continued in game as if it was a normal save all along
An advanced achievement engine uses the game's logic to check if a save has completed one of the supported achievements
Uploaded saves are tagged with completed achievements to generate a leaderboard of who speed ran a certain achievement the quickest
The leaderboard is kept evergreen by enacting a small tax to saves on previous patches, just enough to keep the leaderboard fresh while allowing exceptional runs to bask in glory forever
