This might sounds daft but where can I find the standard object placement template nowadays?? Does it have a different name? I also cannot find the Lightship ‘Hub’ which had all the examples in it. I have downloaded the samples from Github and opened them as a new project in Unity.


Hello Nick,

We no longer have the Lightship Hub in ARDK. The samples package, Emoji Garden, and the How To guides are currently the only examples we have.

OK so the ‘emoji Garden’ sample scene is the new basic object placement one then??

Or do we just follow this guide now?


That link you provided is the old ARDK documentation and won’t work with ARDK 3. All new documentation can be found here: https://lightship.dev/docs/

Emoji Garden is more of an example of how Lightship Maps and the Coverage API can be used together, sorry if there was any confusion I was mainly listing out what samples we do have at the moment in my previous response. We no longer have the kinds of templates like the ones we had in Lightship Hub.

You can check out this How To which also includes some object placement functionality: https://lightship.dev/docs/ardk/how-to/ar/convert_point_world_position/
