    Which version has the newer version of the Tile Map system?
    And which should be used for development (Experimental, definitely not for release)

    I'm also wondering whether Robobash is planned to continue and carry over to the next version (non - experimental) finding it a great level-design teaching aid :)

    2017.2 has the newer version of the Tile Map system, not to mention it's already on the roadmap as a planned release so there won't be any new Experimental Previews, instead any updates will follow in the beta updates.

    Just tried Robodash on it too, the only issue I found is that GridInformation can't be found, which breaks a lot of the brush tools within the project.

    Use 2017.2 from now on if you can. I can't use it yet because it doesn't support .Net 4.6. It's supposed to be fixed in beta 3.

    Yes, please use the 2017.2 beta as we have updated a couple of things since the preview.
    The RoboDash demo has been updated and includes a GridInformation script. We're currently moving demos etc to the Unity GitHub.
    For those who would like the updated to 2017.2 beta RoboDash demo now -

    Unity 2017.2 Tilemap does not have, Isometric tile and Hexagonal tile.

    Will these tiles be implemented and added in next Unity 2017.2 beta version?

    @RyotaMurohoshi Isometric and Hex will not be in the 2017.2 release. Main reason is that we need to do more research and work on properly supporting these types of tilemaps. We want to nail down the different workflows and issues that come with working with iso and hex based games. But we also didn't want to delay the release of Tilemap. Once it is released we will continue work on the other tile types, additional features and improvements.

    @AssembledVS Yes, you can use the 2017.2 beta for your actual projects!
    No ETA on the sprite sorting at center and tile sorting issue. We're looking into how we can solve this and also provide a better overall solution, that works well in the different scenarios.

    Generally to All: About to release 2017.1 - I'll do an update post on our plans etc when that's out.

    Thank you for all the replies.

    The name RoboBash (slipped) is how I call the same-screen co-op version.

    There is no TileAnimationData struct in Unity 2017.2b.

    ~Is Animated Tiles postponed to future release?~

    Sorry, I found it.
    My mistake.
