1.4 Patch size

Steam 2.7GB
Uplay 5.3GB

What's the reason for the difference?

Seems files on steam are compressed and when applying and decompressing the patch, it will be 5.3GB.

steam files are always compressed up to half of original size. all the things downloaded there are like that

oooooooh i was thinking that steam screwd the update
you know? it's like when steam "scan" the files and make you download the new/different ones
so i though MAYBE some files from 1.4 were the same size as the previous patch, so steam ignored those files....
but it's clear now, it's compressed :)
thanks!
