Let's say I have a Lucid simulation of hair in the  wind that took 3 month to simulate and now I just need to add 3 frames to it, is there a way to contiune the simulation from that frame so the result will be perfectly smooth? 

Hi,

I think you just have to use Set Initial State with Preserve Initial Velocity ON.

I did a test on a somple scene and the set initial state is greyed out once my sim is cached...

If it is greyed out I think the stored data is removed. When recording the meshing data the underlying particles will be removed so there is no straight forward way to keep them.

Ok so it doesn't seems possible to continue simulation...
