0011884: Saves list does not use natural sorting
Saves lists are sorted alphabetically by folder name. The default naming system for newly-created worlds is: region1, region2, region3, ...

From saves region1 to region9, the oldest saves (region1) is displayed at top, while newest saves (region9) appear at the bottom of the list. This creates an expectation: when new worlds are created, they are expected to appear at the bottom of the list. Paired w/ the default save naming system, this implies that the higher the number is, the lower it would be listed on the menu.

So when region10 is created after region9, it's expected to be sorted to the bottom of the list. Instead region10 is placed b/w region1 and region2. region20 is placed b/w region2 and region3, etc.
