AssetBundle

Namespace: UnityEngine

/

Inherits from: Object

Description

AssetBundles let you stream additional assets via the WWW class and instantiate them at runtime. AssetBundles are created via BuildPipeline.BuildAssetBundle.

Note that bundles are not fully compatible between platforms. A bundle built for any of the standalone platforms (including webplayer) can be loaded on any of those platforms but not on iOS or Android. Furthermore, a bundle built for iOS is not compatible with Android and vice versa.

See Also: WWW.assetBundle, Loading Resources at Runtime, BuildPipeline.BuildAssetBundle.
