Hi.. need a bit of assistance for "Update Surface Data"
« on: February 11, 2021, 01:25:31 PM »
Hi...
It is really slow to have the AUTO option ON "Update surface data automatically".. in Surface Category.

As this is drastically reducing the performance of my system..

I have 64 gb ram.. yet it slows down when this option is on.
When I keep this option off system has no performance issues.

If the base geometry (surface) has hi poly.. it takes over 15 sec just to go into sub-object mode.

Looking for a simple alternative... Any suggestions are welcome

Is it possible to have a script that auto updates surface on File save.
Just as Itoo hides unhides "itoo layers" on Save command.

Thanks in Advance..

Regards..

Rokas

Hi. Enabling this "on save" would increase file save time by uncontrollable amount.
I would suggest You a ForestPack Toolbox utility I've been developing. It has this refresh function among other useful goodies.
