DLC/ Addressable Assets
« on: February 06, 2020, 09:48:38 PM »
Hi there,

For my project, I’d like to be able to download and unload assets/ groups of assets in the resources folder for DLC/ episodic content.

I did see this topic: https://hutonggames.com/playmakerforum/index.php?topic=18679.0

But it seems the asset bundle is no longer relevant and we have use the Addressable Assets system.

I don’t see any action to manage that, is there something I’m missing?

Hi,

 There is nothing for addressables at this time, I do plan to provide full support for this, as this is a very powerful way, but this will take time, AssetBundle still works though.

Bye,

Okay, thanks for the reply.
I'll try to find how the Asset Bundle works.

Have a nice day,

Hi,

 no yet unfortunatly. Let's see what 2020 has to offer on that front and if addressables survives and evolves gracefully next year. It's a beast and has I got into it and deeper in its understanding It felt complex for no apparent reason...

Bye,

 Jean

Alright, thanks for the update! This is one of those features that would work wonderful for my game if only I knew how to implement it properly with Playmaker!

All the best,
Joel
