Today I'm going to write a quick post about how to easily never have to delete your creaturecache ever again. If you don't already know what it is, this is the file you have to delete to make sure the addon _NPCScan can find rare spawns you have already seen in previous logins. This file is found in your World of Warcraft folder under /Cache/WDB/enUS/creaturecache.wdb. Just to note, I originally found this out from a comment on wowinterface.com and wanted to share it with you guys.
Just Follow These Easy Steps:
1) Delete creaturecache.wdb
2) Open WoW and log a character, then log out. (This will create a new, fresh copy of creaturecache.wdb)
3) Right Click creaturecache.wdb and set it to "read-only". (Details Below for those who need them)
That's it, now every time you logout and WoW tries to make a new file detailing the rare spawns you saw, it'll be read-only, so WoW won't be able to, and you never have to delete it again!
For Those Not So Computer Savvy (making the file read-only)
Right click creaturecache.wdb and select properties from the drop down menu.
Click the general tab at the top, click the check box for read only, then hit OK.
Right Click creaturecache.wdb and select "Get Info" from the drop down menu.
Under "Sharing & Permissions:" set Privileges to Read Only. I just did them all because hey why not?
Hope you all enjoyed this tip!
