How can I create a minimal reproducible?

If my project is too large to submit via the reporter and/or I want to speed up the process of reporting my bug and having reproduced and fixed what can I do to simplify the upload?

To produce a minimal sized project for upload - you can create a minimal reproducible rather than upload your entire project. This will not only make for a faster upload and reproducibility of your issue, but as a bonus it can help you troubleshoot it yourself before submitting.

Here are the steps to do that:

  • Open project in Unity > Open affected scene
  • Remove extraneous items from the scene (assets not required to see issue)
  • Export the scene as a package (right click scene file in project view > export as package
  • Create a new project entirely and name appropriately
  • Import your scene package into a new scene (fix and replace any missing scripts)
  • Test your issue is still applicable (Play or Build then play)
  • Go to Unity menu > Help > Report a bug (Whole new minimal project will be attached)
  • Describe the issue
  • Add reproduction steps (instructions to see the issue)
  • Attach any relevant images / video / links supporting the issue
  • Send error report and make note of the Fogbugz ref when you receive email shortly after (usually within an hour)
