[BUG] Icon caches wiped on update

I was recently caching Icons8 icons within Lunacy (for some reason, no databases are included in the offline installer), by painstakingly scrolling through all the menus and submenus, so I could access the icons when offline.

When I went back online, a minor update was automatically downloaded, which I installed, and then my 200mb+ icon cache was wiped. :cry: It was a lot of work and data to download.

Any chance you could offer offline icon cache databases with the offline installer, or for independent download? Or a “Download all icon caches” option? Or at least not wipe it on updates?

Thank you for the suggestion. We wiped the caches this time because several bugs had to be fixed, but overall caches should remain and carry over during updates.

In the long run, we should eliminate this 200 MB download. It should download the icons on the go as it does with illustrations and photos. This piece is a tech debt.

Please don’t - I much prefer a large one-time download that I can depend on while on the move, than on-the-fly downloads. The issue, currently, is that there isn’t a one-time large download, the only way to cache all the icons is to manually scroll through everything… (and hope the cache doesn’t get wiped or invalidated. I was going to back it up to GitHub, but foolishly accepted the autoupdate).
