Checkerboarded caching (every other tile in an area to save disk space)

Hello! The manual cache feature is great but I think could also be improved!

My idea: Checkerboarded caching. Cache every other tile in an area, to take up half the space, and download half from network.

Cache search could also be improved, as of right now you can only type in airports, not continents or countries.


I’ll add to this. I agree, we need to be able to at least do the low level cache at a more zoomed out level. It’s a little tedious to do a large area.

Also, I’d love to see some map-like marking on the cache map. State and country lines, maybe simple markers for cities or large landmarks and areas like national parks, etc.
