to cache or not to cache, that is the question.

Hi, when I add scenery in the scenery library, it gives me the option to cache the scenery or use it direct. It also has a tick box at the bottom to cache the scenery? What effect do either of these choices have on the running of p3dv2. Thanks.

That option is left over from FSX (and earlier). It was designed for sceneries on optical drives and network drives, where caching to a local hard drive would improve performance.

So if using strictly/solely on a local drive it make no difference?  Is that the consensus?

The only time it makes a difference is if the drive containing the scenery is much slower than the cache drive.
