The .apk weights way too mush. I think so

Hello. I appreciate your work on porting Elite to mobile phones, and I have one question about its... I wonder if it's 'size' in English. More than 400 mb. As I have unzipped the game I found that the most part of that ammount is taken by different versions of intro and by textures. So, the question itself. I have pretty powerful device but still it takes more than 10 seconds to load Elite after unlock. As I understand it's so due to its size. Could you make a 'lite' version of Alite that could be loading faster? I suppose that there is not that big need in, for instance, that detailed planet textures or plenty of intros. Thank you and forgive me my English)

Texture details

You can reduce the texture level details in options/display options. That'll reduce loading times a lot.

Moreover: If I open Alite on my Samsung Galaxy S7, and I've left the game off at the Status Screen (for instance), it takes less than a second until the screen is visible again. It'll take up to 5 seconds if I quit the game "in-flight" (because of the textures, you're right there).

In general, though, setting the texture level to medium details (and maybe the color resolution to 16 bit), will greatly improve performance.

Hth...
