Installation

To install for use in Unity, copy everything from this repository to <YourNewUnityProject>/Packages/Popcron.Builder folder.

If using 2018.3.x, you can add a new entry to the manifest.json file in your Packages folder:

"com.popcron.builder": "https://github.com/popcron/builder.git"

Also make sure that a SharpZipLib.dll is present in your Assets/Plugins folder with editor only setting enabled. A copy of this library already compiled as a .dll is available here.
