    Hi,

    How do I setup and use the rule tile from the 2d-extras in my own tilemap and my own tilemap palette? I am talking about these here: https://github.com/Unity-Technologies/2d-extras

    I do not see any properties on my tiles or tilemap, do I add the script to the grid or tilemap or how? The movie here (https://unity3d.com/learn/tutorials/topics/2d-game-creation/using-rule-tiles-tilemap) uses a custom tile palette, but how do I actually make something like this with my own palette?

    Thank you
    Søren

    You can create a rule tile by going to Assets>Create>RuleTile (its on top at my list). Then you can save it somewhere and proceed to make the rules.

    I still cant figure it out. Do I make a Tile Palette First? I guess i need actual instructions. I added to my project and can create the Rule Set but can't get it into my Tile Palette to use it.

    Download the 2d-extras package (either the zip or git clone) from the GitHub page: https://github.com/Unity-Technologies/2d-extras
    Unzip the folder if you downloaded a zip.
    Drag the folder into your project's Assets folder. Unity will import everything and update your toolbar. The animated tile was under Tiles -> Animated Tile for me.

    Hello, I am sure I did everything correctly. But the option "Animated Tile" isn´t displayed on my menu bar when I need to create Animated Tile. My Unity version is 2018.3.9f1

    I even installed a new and previous version of Unity. Neither worked to me. I go to 2d extras git, download the pack, unzip it, put it into the assets folder. And that´s it. Nothing changes.

    Had the same problem as OP and downloading the 2018.3 version did fix the issue.
