If I stand in NCI Kuula and turn around, so that all textures show up. and then face in one direction for five or six minutes, when I turn around, many of the textures behind me need to be reloaded. Andrew Linden says it sounds to him like the viewer is trolling through the cache tossing things out to be ready for new stuff.

The effect isn't deadly but it is disconcerting and interferes with the world experience, when you turn around and stuff is gone. In fact, if you leave the camera off yourself for a few minutes and then click back, you OUTFIT needs to be repainted. 

I have cache size maxed. I would have guessed that even Kuula couldn't fill it with new stuff.

Is there a way to get the viewer to tell me what it is doing with the cache? This didn't happen before, which makes me wonder if it ia a Mac feature or something recent.

Thanks!

"Current Viewer" does not identify a viewer version specifically enough for us to be able to investigate this.


When identifying a viewer, use the full 4-part version number from the Help > About Second Life box (or better yet, copy that entire box)

Hi Oz, sorry, I wasn't aware any of our esteemed Lindens would be watching, so was just asking a generic question. Here's my about, thanks!
