Newbie can't compile Mapbox SDK's samples

As a beginner in Unity and experimented c# developer, I want to compile MapBox’s Globe sample.

  1. Installed latest version of unity 2017.1.1f1 on PC
  2. Get Mapbox samples : Go to GitHub - mapbox/mapbox-unity-sdk: Mapbox Unity SDK - then “download zip” then uncompress to folder [MapBoxSamples] on my PC
  3. Open [MapBoxSamples]/sdkproject\Assets\Mapbox\Examples\Globe\globe.unity
  4. Downloaded mapbox-unity-sdk_v1.1.0
  5. Unity > Menu Assets > Import Package > Custom package then select mapbox-unity-sdk_v1.1.0
  6. Run

I get several compilation errors, first is:
Assets/Mapbox/Unity/Map/AbstractMapVisualizer.cs(23,13): error CS0246: The type or namespace name `IMapReadable’ could not be found. Are you missing an assembly reference?

(most other errors are same kind : type not found.)

Looks like IMapReadable has been replaced recently by IMap; it makes me think I don’t use latest version of samples.
What am I missing?


Hey there, you should just delete what you’ve installed to date and import the new Mapbox v1.2 package. If you have any further issues, post a ticket on GitHub - mapbox/mapbox-unity-sdk: Mapbox Unity SDK - and the mapbox team will help you out.
