For easy versioning, naming, and reviewing

I made this HDA to streamline the process of versioning caches. It will automatically produce a file path and file name for your cache, and load it back in once it is exported.

You can flip through different versions easily by using the version slider, or using the ‘Create File Node for This Version’ button and wiring the file nodes up to a switch node.

You can write detail attribute strings to store notes about the cache such as simulation parameters – very useful when referring back to old sim caches.
