Include the following details (edit as applicable):

  • Issue category: VPS
  • Device type & OS version: Android 10
  • Host machine & OS version: 7Windows 7
  • Issue Environment : On Device
  • ARDK version: 2.1.0
  • Unity version: 2021.3

Description of the issue:

Hi should the template provided for VPS work in real life wayspots? It works in the mock environment in Unity but when i build to my phone, the session doesnt initialize and the localisation fails…

Is real world use outside the scope of the template and its just to show how persistent anchors work (in mock mode)?

Other templates are building successfully on my device…

Thanks for any pointers!!

Hello TestingTesting123,

The template for VPS does work with real life wayspots, though takes more setup than simply loading the scene and pressing play. Please note only approved activated wayspots will localize. Please see the coverage API for activated locations. And for more information on setting up VPS, as well as reasons localization may fail, please check the lightship.dev articles on VPS.

Hi thanks for the reply.

Well I am looking to build and test something I can see working at a local activated location.

Will this guide result in something I can see working please?

Grateful on any pointers on what ‘more setup’ means in this context please?
