Hi all,

I want to populate some models into the gazebo. (about 500 models in 5 types - 5 x 100)

I populate them randomly, then arrange and save the world.

When I want to load the saved world file it takes a long to load.

What is the best approach to populate a dense world?

In the past I have written scripts to generate random SDF world files, and then loaded the worlds into Gazebo. The time required to load a world depends on the number and complexity of your models.

Isn't there any methods like caching models into ram in order to reduce replication? I need to make a dense forest in the gazebo so there are many models. as I replicate models, the real-time factors decrease.
