    Looking through SteamDB the installed sizes for both Nahverkehr Dresden and London Commuter have been decreased to around 6.4-6.7 GB each. I believe this indicates file compression featured in Unreal 4.26 has been re-enabled but I could be wrong.

    I have it too in spite of having just been playing the London Commuter route. Perhaps an early update/bugfix?

    After installing the update Steam reports London Commuter and Nahverkehr Dresden installed size as 6.44 GB and 6.62 GB respectively.
    I'll edit this post if I spot anything else.

    I've been running BML for about 4 hours just closed the game to find 13.2GB Update, wouldn't mind more information on what the update is for, Can't see any patch notes or any other info regarding it on steam nor Dovetail forums(here)

    When it finished on my machine, I looked at the Steam downloads and there was something from Steam itself in there so wonder if that is what we got, the download time was about right.

    This update was simply to compress the pak files for Dresden and Brighton - for some reason they wre built uncompressed and were 20+gb, they are now around 7gb each, a significant saving of disc but also will help load times be a little faster, particularly if you run off a mech.

    13.2Gb for, and once downloaded then it decided I was missing some files and downloaded 2GB for a 2nd time.

    Its not stuck at 8% installing with an ETA of 8Days 12 hours and rising.I suspect someone or something has broken the update!

    Maybe try pausing the update and restarting Steam. It should continue the download.

    Thanks for the advice sadly it didn't do anything positive and just resumed installing at 8% with an ETA of >1 year. I'll leave it while I go for a walk and hope it gets over whatever is blocking it. Otherwise guess I'm going to have to actually communicate with the real life people I live with until steam sorts it's self out. Did hear Woolworths had a 241 sale on
