I guess it's too much effort to change this now.

There are other workarounds - determine chest contents when they spawn, not when opened; keep rng state in the savefile.

You can save in realms, you'll just lose the items you acquired in that realm if you exit the game. That's probably only a few minutes of playtime lost since realms don't take very long to clear.

The reason for this decision is primarily to prevent players from save scumming. For example, you could save before opening a treasure chest and then restart the game until you get the items you want. It would also be very difficult from a technical perspective because it would cause problems when I patch the game.

Why can't you save inside a realm?  I play on the subway in 30-40 minute increments (GPD Win).  It'd be nice if I could save in a realm.  Especially since there's a penalty for quitting a realm, it'd be nice if I could save inside a realm.  (In Siralim 2, you could quit inside a realm for zero penalty.)
