Web Download decompresses and then compresses the file to a smaller size

Why is the web Download file smaller after decompression and compression?

So you’re saying you extracted the original ZIP file, and then compressed it to another ZIP file, and the second ZIP file is smaller than the first?


What’s the difference in size?

Hi @chuxinhao,

Most likely when you re-compress it using an app of your own, the compression level selected is higher than the one used by the Playcanvas server.

Which makes sense to me, since downloading the build from Playcanvas is mainly used for bundling all the files together quickly.
