    when i load a specific world, and then make some changes
    to that world, should i use the Optimize World command
    in order to save disk space (for the incremental saved
    world load), or there are other things i should do
    i.e: doeas the Optimize World command, optimizes the
    world size?
    Thanks in advance for your help.

Optimize World reorders newly created objects in memory to improve
paging and runtime performance in the resulting world.  It does not
increase the size of complete worlds, but may increase the size of IDS
worlds by approximately 10%.  This is because IDS world size is
influenced by the number of memory modifications from the parent world,
and moving objects around may modify some additional memory locations.

If disk space is your primary concern, and you are using IDS worlds, you
should not Optimize World.  If paging performance is a major concern,
and you load a significant amount of software in addition to the parent
world, then you should Optimize World.
