By default, VMWare Player saves any VM you create to your documents folder and there doesn’t appear to be a way to change that.
However, there is.

This article provides the steps to change a monolithic disk (a virtual machine disk contained in a single file) into to a split disk (a virtual machine disk split into 2GB files) in VMware Workstation.
TIP : You need VMware Workstation, not just VMware Player.
Installing VMware tools on Freebsd 10
- When installing OS, add kernel src
- Once installed, start the tools installer
Player, Manage, Install VMware tools
- Mount the tools cd in the OS
# mount -t cd9660 -o -e /dev/cd0 /cdrom
Assumes /dev/cd0 is your cdrom and that /cdrom exits
- Copy install from cd to local file system
# cp /cdrom/vmware-freebsd-tools.tar.gz /tmp
- Eject cdrom
# umount /cdrom
then Click Player, Manage, Cancel VMware tools installation
- Install required packages
# pkg install compat6x-i386
# pkg install perl5
# pkg install xf86-input-vmmouse
- Create link to perl (so vmware tools can find it)
# ln -s /usr/local/bin/perl /usr/bin/perl
- Extract vmware tools installer ad start installer
# cd /tmp
# tar zxvf vmware-freebsd-tools.tar.gz
# cd vmware-tools-distrib
I just press enter to accept all the defaults, you may want to read all the options and change some if required.
