I've been working on an open world project that involves a lot of loading and unloading of assets. (A virtual museum of Earth history.) SceneLoader.LoadAssetContainerAsync() seems to be the only means of tracking which and when new assets have been loaded, as SceneLoader.LoadAsync() returns only the current scene.

Where I'm running into trouble is the end of the life cycle. AssetContainer does not have a dispose() method. My attempts to manually create one have thus far ended in halt & catching fire. The removeAllFromScene() method will dispose of the assets* but I'm still left with an AssetContainer object from every SceneLoader call. If I clear the assets in a different way, the assets won't garbage collect, because the AssetContainer itself still references them.

Has anyone worked on a similar scenario? How did you manage large volumes of load -> use -> forget?

*AssetContainer.removeAllFromScene() seems to have a problem removing instanced objects, but I've been too lazy to create a proper bug report. I promise I will!
