Does rolling cache works ?

Recommended Posts

I have allocated 244 GB rolling cache and visited many cities in low altitudes (with drone), to download the areas. It seems to update the rolling cache during every exit.

Then, I wanted to test the rolling cache and set the sim offline. When I loaded the same areas and visited with the same altitudes (with drone), there were only generic buildings and not the same photo-imagery buildings in that areas.  I was expecting to see photo-imagery buildings as I taught  I have downloaded them already to the rolling cache.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance...

I'm not sure if the rolling cache is working as intended, maybe after the patch. I've set my cache from 32 GB to 0 and the stutters are gone. At least something positive 😃

Stick to the 8GB default.

0 GB and 244 GB are not a good idea and both will have bad results for your experience.

With 0GB the sim does not quit instantly.

With 244GB your start up times will be bad.

How do you Sim offline, I tried that and when I fired up the Sim it asked for a disk even though it's digital

I cannot recognize any sense in using very large Rolling Cache files. Better use Manual Cache files for areas which are known for heavy load and you fly a lot.
