I just tried to package my project on Linux and was surprised to get a 1.2 GiB package for just an empty room with a main menu.
If I take the standard C++ 3rd person template and package it, I get a 1.1 GiB package.
The executable alone is 750 MiB in size.
What is going on here? I have disabled debug information (and there are no .mdb or .pdb files around) and I’m using the “Shipping” configuration.
