SnowRunner – How to Edit Save Files on PC

You can edit most of your save files. This may allow you to add new trucks to your garage, collect bugged upgrades, and much more.

What You Need

All you need is a simple text editor because most save files are just JSON text files.

But I recommend using the notepad++ with the JSON Viewer plugin. Also, you need to disable steam cloud saves. Then play sometime after you edited your saves. And then you can enable steam cloud and overwrite data here from local files.

Your Main Save File

We’re interested in this file


This file contains all your save data from slot 1, excluding fog on the map. I don’t know how to remove/edit fog, because these are binary files with unknown to me format.

So you needed just locate this file and open it with a text editor. then you will see one long string. Use format JSON from plugin in notepad++ to convert it to a more readable format. And then you can edit your file. I show one example of how you can edit it.

	"CompleteSave": {
		"SslType": "SaveObject",
		"SslValue": {
			"isFirstGarageDiscovered": false,
			"objectiveStates": {},
			"gameTime": -1.0,
			"persistentProfileData": {
				"refundTruckDescs": {},
				"unlockedItemNames": {
					"chevrolet_ck1500": false
				"money": 5000,
				"experience": 0,
				"trucksInWarehouse": [
						"retainedMapId": "",
						"type": "western_star_49x",
						"id": "",
						"engineDamage": 0,
						"damage": 0,
						"fuel": 2147483648.0,

This file is pretty large, so I omitted some parts from it. So I want to remove all my stored trucks. All I need for this is just clear all data from the trucksInWarehouse array. The clean array will look like this:


And then just save the file. Also in persistentProfileData, you can edit your money, experience, and other stuff. Have fun.
