I found it takes very long to open my scene file recently. There are several complex Railclone objects and Forest Pro objects in the scene file. Did the Railclone objects or the Forest objects slow down the speed of opening the scene file ? How can I speed up the speed of opening my scene file with complex iToosoft Objects ? I mean the speed of opening file, not the viewport speed.
Oh, the most important thing is the scene file size is not very big, just only about 200MB.

I think RailClone should have not have a significant effect in the speed of opening file, because it doesn't require complex processes.
A different issue is Forest, specially if you are using heavy animated meshes. Could this be the case?

I suggest you try to isolate the problem, testing each object in a separate scene. Once identified, we would check it to know what is the problem exactly.

Yeah! All the forest sample objects are animated Xmesh objects with lots of polygons. I must make a large windy forest. The whole size of cache files of Xmeshes is almost 10GB. I turned on "Animated only at render time". But it also took so long to load the scene file. Maybe about 2 minites. Any workaround for speeding up the loading time?

Well, i'm afraid that turning on "Animated only at render time" is the only workaround. With this parameter enabled, Forest computes an unique sample by mesh (specifically at time 0).
I just tested it using a heavy mesh, and it works as expected; loading time is significant lower.

Just to be sure, please double check that "Animated only" is enabled for all your Forest objects.
