    We've made another update to Unity Cloud Build! Here are a few of the new things you'll observe:
    • updated visual design
    • various bug fixes - thanks to everyone who found & submitted bugs
    • the ability to transfer ownership of your project to a collaborator on the /collaborators page
    • slightly improved build times, decreased restarts
    • "Advanced Settings" are now available by default - no special request required
    And we continue to listen closely to our users: your testimonials, your discussions in this forum, and the support tickets you submit, are all very valuable to us. Thanks to all of you!

    Had trouble finding any threads about this: will there eventually be support for .blend files?

    We do not support Blender files at the moment. It is still on our feature list, but at the moment we need to focus on different aspects of the system. There are different tasks which need to be solved to support Proprietary 3D files which can not be solved easily. You can find all information in the documentation with the latest information about 3D-formats.

    Ah yes, I saw that proprietary formats weren't supported, I just wasn't sure if that meant they'd ever be supported. Thanks for clearing that up!

    Hi,
    Can you please point me a link on how to save blender files to be able to use them on cloud build?
    Thanks!!!!

    As you can read here: https://build.cloud.unity3d.com/support/faq only Proprietary 3D files are supported so you can not use .blender files. The best format to work with in Unity is the .fbx format which works perfectly fine with Unity Cloud build.

    @David Berger UCB doesn't seem to support .rsp files under Assets folder. Is it a known issue?

    Yes, those will be overwritten, you can use the Custom Defines in the Editor (Player Settings) or platform specific ones via the Cloud Build Dashboard.

    Voxel Busters,

    What's your specific use-case with the .rsp files and automation? Our goal is for Cloud Build to be the best solution for automating Unity projects!

    Cheers,
    Patrick

    We are providing a plugin on Asset store which has different features.
    We disable and enable the features based on macros. When user selects/deselect a feature, we update the .rsp files accordingly. This helps in not touching the platform defines settings (as we see no API for accessing it to make it automated).

    Simple example is - For iOS, if user don't want to use a feature, we disable the feature and won't export that code/frameworks in the final export. This we achieve by creating .rsp files and updating it based on user selection.

    So if a user has a project with your plugin in it, at build time you'd want Cloud Build to merge their custom defines from the Unity editor and their custom defines from Cloud Build with the defines in the .rsp file that you generate?

    Anything defined in the Cloud Build UI would probably be final-say and trump the .rsp file, so you could setup multiple projects/targets with different configurations in Cloud Build, but pulling from the same source control.

    Cheers,
    Patrick

    Yes, Indeed. It would be great if it merges instead of overwriting.

    I see your point on providing setting from cloud build which is great but, thats a manual step for the users if they use any third party plugins/if they rely on .rsp files (which is still supported).

    Could you please suggest any best solution for this?

    Ah that's interesting that you can set defines via C#. Does that solution fit your specific scenario?

    Cheers,

    I hope so this should solve. Could you please confirm if we set the project defines in the Player Settings per platform, will it be considered by UCB?

    This should work in Cloud Build today. If not, please let us know.
