Why Does TSTO Re-download Every Time I Open My Game?

Hey Howdy Hey Tappers!

Happy final hours of Halloween! (finally!) While we all await the final countdown, and for something new to hit our games, I thought I’d take a minute this morning to tackle a very common question we see in the comments (and through email).  Here’s an example of the question:

“Can you please tell me why every morning for the past 2 weeks my game downloads everything again?
I’ve been playing this game for at least 5 years and it’s never done this. “

The answer, my friends, is pretty simple.  You need to free up some space on your device.

TSTO is a GIANT suck on the storage of your device and requires you to have roughly 5GB of FREE space to playUpdate 2021: This post was originally written back in 2018…We now recommend at least 15GB free.    When it redownloads the game every time you start to play it you simply need to free up some space so you have at least 5 GB free (preferably more) and it will stop.  Well, it’ll download one more time, but then it won’t do it again.  Well, it’ll do it again every time there’s an actual update but it won’t do it daily.

Nice and easy fix for something that, I’m sure, is driving a bunch of you crazy!

Onto the next update!
