Stop bottles from downloading 20kb packages on every launch

Whenever I open bottles, it takes few seconds to download 20kb something. It is annoying. How can I disable this or lessen it download frequency?

Yes, it’s annoying. Currently you can either disable the network through flatseal, but bear in mind that none of the programs inside may have the connection. Or you can use the environment variable FORCE_OFFLINE=1 also through flatseal which will make just the Bottles offline.

There is a need of caching the downloads that are made at the start, but currently it wasn’t worked on:
