Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Item data usage measurement?

Can someone explain the map usage of data, How do it work?
Do all item use the same amount of data?
Is there a list/bot/feature to see each item size usage?

Re: Item data usage measurement?

A database object is likely stored as a serialized protocol buffer message, composed of properties with varying sizes depending on the object type.

If you imagine a world that contains 10 blue basic blocks, and two sign blocks.

The basic blocks are stored based on their ID and their locations are combined into one property. A sign block is stored individually based on its text and location.

If you have two signs with two separate texts, you'll likely be storing more data than what it takes to store the 10 basic blocks.
