But this doesn't fix the main lag-causer for me. Mem, fill-up.

Let me propose a compromise: Initially, we do not page out anything. We only page in subdistricts as we walk around.

As the city develops over time, and the memory footprint of the city gets large enough so that even relevancy regions won't help, we'll add the calls to PtPageOutNode().

Does this sound reasonable?
Can we rebuild it? Yes, we can - here's how.

I wasn't going to post this at first since it was only a test age, but I'm bored and thought it was funny.

It just keeps... following me

Is that where the shells go when you page them out? :lol:

Nah, just try linking to LinkTest01 and then to other ages, sticks on it's own depending what shells you were near

Hmm, the list of disadvantages is growing... Did anyone have this problem with Prad?

I wonder if Yeesha had days like this? :roll: That's probably where all the ruins in Kadish Tolesa came from. Whoops, bad link! :lol:

I didn't see any issues with Prad. It was plenty creepy though. :D

I wonder why the other Cyan ages that page in nodes (Cleft, Gahressen, city, Neighborhood, Teledahn) as well as Prad don't have this effect?

I suspect it might be due to colliding district names. LinkTest01.py has 5 districts named Shell*, just like Ahra Pahts. PtPageInNode() ignores the city_District_ prefix of the PRP file name. Could it be that, if multiple PRPs exist with the same name, the other one hangs around in other ages?

I need to test this theory; I'm going to rename the LinkTest01 shell pages and try it.
