public static Build.Reporting.BuildReport BuildPlayer(BuildPlayerOptions buildPlayerOptions);


buildPlayerOptions Provide various options to control the behavior of BuildPipeline.BuildPlayer.


BuildReport A BuildReport giving build process information.


Builds a player.

Use this function to programatically create a build of your project.

Calling this method will invalidate any variables in the editor script that reference GameObjects, so they will need to be reacquired after the call.

Note: Be aware that changes to scripting symbols only take effect at the next domain reload, when scripts are recompiled.

This means if you make changes to the defined scripting symbols via code using PlayerSettings.SetDefineSymbolsForGroup without a domain reload before calling this function, those changes won't take effect.

It also means that the built-in scripting symbols defined for the current active target platform (such as UNITY_STANDALONE_WIN, or UNITY_ANDROID) remain in place even if you try to build for a different target platform, which can result in the wrong code being compiled into your build.
