    After searching around youtube and on the forum, I have two options in my mind to save players data :

    - The first one would be to save data periodically (like an auto-save every 5 min on server-side), when the host is leaving the scene, and if possible when the host crash but I don't know if the OnApplicationQuit() is able to handle this type of task in background ? Then the Steam Cloud will save the local file on the host computer which contain all players data by world created.

    - The second one is during the gameplay, the session send data to a database, but I'm affraid this would be an expensive solution (cost and performance).

    What's guys your opinion about that ?
