New Patching System

My suggestion is to change patching system.
Why ?
Patches are too big and not adequate to changes in the game files.
Patches from version 6.5.2 for example to recent version is almost 7 GB in size, and changes in files maybe 200 MB or even not !
Maybe it's high time to think about xdelta patching or something other ?
If you can't do anything with it , please forward it to developers of the game.
I think RoM community will very appreciate this idea.

Patches are huge because runewaker are lazy, instead of packing the files from the data.fdb, they simply put the entire data.fdb contents into the patch, therefore making it 400mb + if any change is made to data.fdb(basically every patch)

Very dumb idea for people with slow internet, downloading 400mb just for a 10mb change. Especially when festivals are the only change, 400mb for a festival change is dumb, should be less then 5mb easily.
