Voxel cache space usage?
« on: August 30, 2017, 05:25:27 PM »

Does anyone have an idea how much space it needed have a voxel cache for an entire 40x40km map? Keep on having to clear my voxel cache which I'd prefer not to do.

My computer would crash if I tried.  I don't have that much storage on my drive (older computer).  I would estimate 500GB or more (maybe a TB) for the whole thing.  I don't recommend 40k maps unless you have a fast new computer with a lot of storage.  Preferably a really fast data bus for loading the voxels.
