    Hi,

    (Windows Editor)
    I'd like to make some changes to the SRP in the Unity packages. But PackageManager overwrite all changes on the next Unity start and try to prevent changes to the SRP packages.

    1) Is there any option to prevent overwriting changes are made in a package generally? eg:
    ProjectFolder : \SubScene\Library\PackageCache\com.unity.entities@0.1.1-preview\Unity.Scenes.Hybrid ? Changes are made here reflect the result and will recompiled in unity.

    2) From where are these files in \Library\PackageCache\ overwritten?

    3) If there's no option to prevent overwrite in the package manager, is there any other way to prevent overwriting?

    I need a solution! Thank you!

    Hi @Quatum1000!

    I think what you want to do is having an embedded version of SRP packages in your project.
    Did you take a look at https://docs.unity3d.com/Manual/CustomPackages.html?

    Also please notice that as soon as you embed (overwrite a package with your own version) you want be able to update it anymore.

    Regards,

    My idea was to create an additional preview package based on entities:
    com.unity.entities@0.1.1-preview.Q1000

    I'v created a sub-folder in Project/packages/ and made a complete copy of the subfolder
    com.unity.entities@0.1.1-preview. Untitled-1.jpg

    and the package.json

    Code (CSharp):
    1. {
    2.   "name": "com.unity.entities",
    3.   "displayName": "Entities",
    4.   "version": "0.1.1-preview.Q1000",
    5.   "unity": "2019.1",
    6.   "unityRelease": "0f1",
    7.   "dependencies": {
    8.     "com.unity.properties": "0.6.2-preview",
    9.     "com.unity.mathematics": "1.1.0",
    10.     "com.unity.test-framework.performance": "1.0.9-preview",
    11.     "com.unity.burst": "1.1.2",
    12.     "nuget.mono-cecil": "0.1.6-preview",
    13.     "com.unity.jobs": "0.1.1-preview",
    14.     "com.unity.collections": "0.1.1-preview"
    15.   },
    16.   "description": "The Entities package provides a modern Entity Component System (ECS) implementation with a basic set of systems and components made for Unity.",
    17.   "keywords": [
    18.     "entities",
    19.     "dots",
    20.     "unity"
    21.   ],
    22.     "author": {
    23.     "name": "Quatum1000 cern",
    24.     "email": "Open.Days2019@cern.ch",
    25.     "url": "http://www.home.cern"
    26.   }
    27. }
    28.  
    but that gets directly into errors.

    @Quatum1000

    Did you change any assembly definition files and/or namespaces?

    Also when put a package in development, you should not make a copy of it in `<YourProjectPath>/Packages`, but move it.

    Did not.

    I don't understand. The Docs say Creating a new embedded package
    1. Create a new subfolder for your package inside the Packages folder.
    2. Open your preferred text editor and create a JSON file called package.json.
    3. Save it under the new package root folder you created.
    4. Fill out all required and mandatory fields in the package manifest (package.json) file.
    My copy is an additional Entities version now:
