What is a PMS file?

A PMS file is a game save file created by PlanetMiner, a 2D interplanetary block-excavating game. It stores saved game progress in plain text, which includes a player's score, current level, number of gems collected, number of levels completed, and blocks excavated and deleted. PMS files allow players to save and resume PlanetMiner games.

Johneda developed PlanetMiner and released it in December 2021 for Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms. When you save your game by typing CTRL+S, PlanetMiner creates a save.pms file to store the game progress.

The location in which PlanetMiner creates and saves PMS files depends on the platform you are running the game:

  • Windows XP - C:\​Documents and settings\​[user]\​Application data\​LOVE\​planetary\​
  • Windows Vista - 10: C:\​Users\​user\​AppData\​Roaming\​LOVE\​planetary\​
  • macOS: /​Users/​[user]/​Library/​Application Support/​LOVE/​planetary/​
  • Linux: ~/​.local/​share/​love/​planetary/​ or $XDG_DATA_HOME/​love/​planetary/​

NOTE: The game utilizes one PMS file to store saved game progress. Therefore, you cannot save more than one PlanetMiner game.

Common PMS Filenames

save.pms - Default filename given to the PMS file created by PlanetMiner.

How to open a PMS file

You can open and load PMS files by opening PlanetMiner, then typing CTRL+L. Since the file is saved in a plain text format, you can also use a text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad (bundled with Windows) or Apple TextEdit (bundled with macOS), to open, modify, and view the saved game data.

NOTE: Opening a PMS file with a text editor will not look the same as opening it with PlanetMiner.
